Why Batman v. Superman Might be a Silly Idea By: @ardi_pram I understand that most people want a fresh start in a new year. Indeed, people like to read a motivational article which arduous and vigorously inspirational. However, giving motivations is not my area of expert and I am more into movies. This year, I personally think that the most prominent issue in a cinematic industry is whether Batman v. Superman will meet expectation or, vice versa, will be noted in history among the biggest flop. When Marvel announced its intention to bring the Avengers into Silver Screen, most people underestimate it since they believe there were too many obstacles to ensure that this superhero flicks will not degraded into such a messy actions full of CGI.
I did not enjoy the movies and I know that the book adaptations were much better than the movie adaptations. The first thing that stood out to me was the way the directors of the movies cut out very important scenes from the book that needed to be in the movie for it to make sense. An example of this is the scene in the
Little did you know that all of these movies were produced and released in the eighties. Movies started to gain popularity, causing them to have better production and more quantities of them. The special effects were still pretty poor quality with the fake animations and cringey explosions. Stephen King’s The Shining (100 80s Movies) was released in 1980 and became one of the most memorable and terrifying horror movies of all time. Right under that was Nightmare On Elm Street (100 80s Movies), another horror/thriller movie released in 1984 under the direction of Wes Craven.
From the first decisions of the casting, the portions of the script known and the movie itself. There was harsh criticism. It is hard to please everybody and it is even harder to send a foundation for a stream of movies to come. Warner studios realized too late that they owned the rights to a mine of gold that could produce billions of dollars. Marvel was smarter and gave them a run for their money, they are ahead of the game
How it worked was that an image, read by a lens, would be displayed on a plate where it would be scanned by electrons. The electrons would bounce back, being created into an eclectic impulse where a receiving transmitter would pick up the image and show it on a screen. After countless hours of research, Philo Farnsworth sold his final product to RCA, where he would still collect royalties. While the TV became more popular, it was still too expensive for most, aside from wealthy families. Many people only watched television when they were out in bars or in shopping in stores.
The director of The Godfather parts one and two are classics, and have become engraved in the legacy of Francis Ford Coppola. As described in an online article, The Godfather films revolutionized new ideas in cinematography for future films by the use of minimally lit rooms that were often used in the movie (Konow, Filming The Light and Dark Side of The Godfather). However, while Coppola had the potential to become the iconic auteur with many critically successful films to last into the coming years, Coppola’s career spiraled downward. Financial problems cause his next few films to be received differently among critics, he couldn’t recreate the masterpiece and influence that The Godfather
Movies are a form of entertainment for most everyone so this stereotype we see goes unnoticed. We fail to analyze and go deeper into what we are watching. Movies especially over the past few decades are setting up serious stereotypes for our men and boys. Top rating movies with leading male roles tend to have those roles fall into a certain stereotypes. If the leading male role doesn't fall into a certain stereotype then the leading role tends to be a female, what does this say about our society?
In contrast to the chic paintings, the typography became more bold, borders were often used creating an embossed or shadowed effect, giving the type a more 3 dimensional appearance. As TV became a popular fixture in households at the end of the ‘40s, less movies were made. Also, because of the war, budgets were cut and so less movies were made, rendering movie posters of this era rare and valuable collector’s items. Paranoia films became popular during the cold war era as Americans feared communism resulting from the war, but producers realised that they needed to focus on more genres rather than solely focusing on war, to win back their viewers. Because of this, fantasy films were created in the ‘50s to entice viewers.
With what would be a dream come true for adults decades ago, teenagers don’t seem to be using the blessing they have in order to broaden their horizons with effortless amounts knowledge. In an interview recorded by Reason TV, Mark Bauerlein is quoted reading a fact that is shocking to most American citizens. This statistic found in his book The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or, Don't Trust Anyone Under 30) explains how in 2001, a Nape High School history exam had the following question. It asked those senior students who were our allies during World War II. After receiving the marks, the exam found that 52% of the students had chosen Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan or Fascist Italy as our allies during World War II instead of the Soviet Union.
Eliot Ness and his team, and Capone and his associates were represented similarly, and differently in the movie vs. reality. Eliot Ness wasn’t the good cop everyone thought he was, the team in The Untouchables was all fictitious besides Ness, and Capone was just as cruel in the movie as he was in real life. The movie was a very entertaining one, packed with action that keeps you interested. Although it was a great movie, it left out many important details in the Capone investigation due to being able to make the movie more watchable for viewers and acting as a time constraint. Directors have many reasons why they change things in movies related to history, it’s always intriguing to analyze what changes are
Movies of the decade also tended to be of a more realistic nature than the films of the 1920s. They accepted the reality dealt with by Americans of the time but also gave them hope for a better future (“Hollywood”). Classic plotlines “kept alive a belief in the possibility of individual success, portrayed a government capable of protecting its citizens from external threats, and sustained a vision of America as a classless society” (Price). Other, less realistic films, such as The Wizard of Oz and Busby Berkeley 's extravagant musicals, gave people the opportunity to escape their lives for a while. In his article, “The Impact of Hollywood During the Great Depression”, Patrick Price theorizes that escapism and the need for distraction were among the primary reasons cinemas prospered even during the lowest years of the Depression.
Hollywood is amongst the top in power of the media in the United States, the productions that come out, become believed representations of the audiences that watch them, bringing down many that are shown in those productions. With audiences that are more than majority a darker color, than what are is represented in Hollywood films, it brings to attention just how much of a problem it comes be. Minorities should be just part of the Hollywood creation, they have a social responsibility to avoid stereotyping ethnic characters due to reasons of not having enough diversity in films and TV shows, create unwelcome stereotypes, and whitewash over others cultures. A social responsibility is an entity, has a responsibility to act for the benefit of
