The cast is really quite spectacular, although several actors and actresses later did not live to the potential indicated by their performance during this film.Those who like analysing movies to death would in all probability ask why The Godfather kept its cult status through the quarter of century. there have been several well created, well directed and well acted movies made in the years before and after, however it appears that only The Godfather stood the test of time and kept the imagination of the future moviegoers. the reason may possibly be within the universal subject of the movie; although it shows rather obscure and ethnically isolated phenomenon the messages of The Godfather can be translated on all the world 's languages and applied to alternative systems in several times and places. The film portrays each the society and individuals lost their freedom because they were too insecure or unprepared for responsibility; same because the poor Italian immigrants had to trust the Mafia to overcome the difficulties of new World, Michael is forced to join the family because he, despite all his efforts, cannot live in a insecure world outside his father 's
The products do not necessarily have a high value, but because they are shown at such a frequent rate they automatically become desirable. This also applies to trivial commodities like certain brands of beer. Additionally, the type of commodities displayed in movies often are high valued, like the previously mentioned expensive cars and fancy clothing. The fact that the main characters in movies often own high-value commodities enforces the idea that these commodities signify things like affluence, success, or prestige. This causes spectators to develop a (false) need for these product
And it reminds you that social history airbrushed for the screen by Hollywood is preferable to none at all. Despite its cosmetic embellishments, “The Great Debaters” obviously emanates from the heart. It makes you nostalgic for prototypes like Stanley Kramer’s socially conscious message movies of the 1950s and ’60s and for the era that produced them. As an enduring American myth, the triumph of the sanctified underdog, an intrepid spirit who doesn’t compromise his integrity on the slippery path to victory, may be much the worse for wear in these Darwinian times, but it can still produce a lump in your throat. The real tale of the unlikely ascendance of the debate team at Wiley College, a small all-black institution in Marshall, Tex., in 1935, follows the template of countless sports movies.
Throughout the movie, the characters maneuvered between dark and some caricature creations. The abstract images throughout the movie are not for the easily distracted. The original “Titus Andronicus” was deemed by Samuel Johnson to be barbaric and history has shown that the stage performances are usually controversial and over the top (Bate). Taymor did not let history down with her production The movie was too fast and shaky. Julie Taymor is trying to create a performance of Titus Andronicus that would be perceived by filmic historians as the most outrageous performance of Titus Andronicus.
Walt Disney is still one of the largest providers of entertainment in America, which makes it all the more surprising that one of their classic stories would be about, at its core, a psychological disorder. Americans often idolize characters such as Belle, so much so that they fail to see the imperfections in them. However happy the films tone may be it cannot change the facts that Belle shows all the symptoms of the disorder. Thorough examination of the film shows that Belle is not simply a princess who lives happily ever after, but rather is a victim who certainly suffers from Stockholm
I think most of society was able to resonate with Seabiscuit. He represented a rare hero that fell victim to outcomes beyond his internal locus of control. In the search for a better life many people turned to film. They did this for the factor of escapism that it alluded to. Seabiscuit was the overarching embodiment of this ideal, he fostered Americans to triumph against the undeniable odds they were facing.
Stereotypes and social scripts are a timeless subject that have been caught and displayed to entertain through movies. Whether it be a classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with Asian Mr. Yunioshi played by the obliviously Caucasian Mickey Rooney. (source) Exhibiting the obvious incorrect race for the role, and yet the film still went on the be very successful. This is due to dyers thinking, “stereotypes express particular definitions of reality, with concomitant evaluations, which in turn relate to the disposition of power within society.” (dyer 3) The power of society deciding that the stereotyping is acceptable. Therefore, allowing for the movie to carry on without too much confrontation.
In the essay “Avatar and the Gluttony of Technology” Ari Kelman emphases through the use of almost a comical praise to the enormously popular and high grossing box office movie, Avatar, with a extraordinary fondness toward the technological plots that the producers of the movie put in place. It is a very familiar setting to critics of the technological exploitations of the movie to deliver their storyline along with the behavior of the movies characters. Ari goes forth to state his discomfort with the subtle use of technology in the film. His argument reflects that as long as the producers of the movie rely on technology to deliver the various components of their film, as in the case of Avatar, then there is no need for the audiences to act marveled by the technology. If computers do or create all aspects of a movie, such as the characters themselves, including channeling human emotions and communications of those individual characters, we may as well manipulate everything with the same computers and have limitless creativity.
Carroll (1992) claims that the violence is too much for any audience (p.1). The actors in the movie are outstanding and play their roles with phenomenal talent, but the amount of gore overshadows their performances (Carroll, 1992, p.1). Carroll (1992) makes a claim saying this movies storyline creates an exciting ride for the viewer, but other than that it serves no purpose (Carroll, 1992, p.1). In conclusion, Reservoir Dogs provides an eye opening, society altering movie that captivates the audience to look deeper into the movie. It contains many gorey scenes and leaves viewers cheated at the end (Carroll, 1992, p.1).
She has failed to appeal to an ethos of credibility, she seems more inclined to remain famous, than building on her political career. She has been reduced somewhat to a sad caricature of her former Alaskan glory much to the amusement of the cast of Saturday Night Live (SNL). As a known gun enthusiast, The National Rifle Association would be a suitable cause for endorsement. Dave Chapelle's brand of comedy is witty, sarcastic and profanely vulgar. This has Ironically propelled him to superstardom and a pop culture comedic legend.
Peter Appleton and John Proctor are both similar and different in their own way. They both are in similar situations when they are faced with similar moral dilemmas. They both are coming from different time eras so the dilemma for both of them are of course going to be different. In John Proctors case he is facing the dilemma of him and his wife being accused of witchcraft, and with just being accused of witchcraft no one wanted to associate with you in any way. Peter Appleton’s dilemma is that he is a big Hollywood film writer and living the American dream, but things start to go down because he has been accused of communism.
“It 's a ghost town rabid underworld / Dionysian night vitriolic twilight / A mirage comes up it never ends”. (Distillers) California is synonymous with the glitz and glamor seen in Hollywood movies. People not living in California fail to see that amongst all the glamour lies cities that at one time were amongst the most dangerous cities. California has a modern noir that resonates in particularly in the city of Los Angles amongst the star stricken Hollywood stars. The song sang by The Distillers “City of Angels” captivities this idea of the melting pot of all that is truly going on in California .David Thomas captivates this in his work “Beneath Mulholland” a famous road that take people from Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley giving its drivers some of the only siren views of the ghoulish city..
After thorough research, I finally nailed down a recent current event immensely impacting the film and entertainment industry. Although, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is a one of a kind entity, industry leader, and entertainment media organization—they are not prone to controversy. To demonstrate, Kira Hudson Banks wrote an article in the Harvard Business Journal titled, Diversity at the Oscars Is More than a Numbers Game—https://hbr.org/2016/02/diversity-at-the-oscars-is-more-than-a-numbers-game. Kira, critically breaks down how worthy actors are being passed up for Oscar nominations simply because of their race, she, ultimately, analyzes the underlying problem as “Institutional Racism”, in which she ties to
