Film genres give the audience information into the type movie it may be, this in turn helps them to decide whether the movie is suitable for them or not. The Maltese Falcon, a film categorised as Film Noir and The Searchers, a Western genre film, are both from different genres but both reinforce and challenge dominant social and cultural beliefs and values throughout each film. Each genre can be broken down into; codes, conventions and narrative conventions. Codes are aspects of the text that help the audience make meaning. These codes can be shown as symbolic, written, audio and technical.
On the people or group who are faced with the judgement of these single sided views. So in reality how true are these stereotypes. Body In this essay I plan to discuss the challenges of one sided theories or stereotypes, discuss a movie that accurately discriminates, the idea that stereotypes are real and true. I plan to discuss a movie and its one sided views and ideas, semiotics and the narrative, how the film is conducted and to give an accurate representation. Of the people who are portrayed in the film.
Fahrenheit 451 Comparison I am comparing the book Fahrenheit 451 to the movie WALL-E. It is important to compare the ideas and style of different texts because it helps to understand the purpose of them being different. Both Fahrenheit 451 and WALL-E involve technology and symbols, but they are used differently between the two. In the book Fahrenheit 451 technology is used very differently than it is in the movie WALL-E. Fahrenheit 451 uses mechanical hounds which have control of the people and has poison that can be injected to prevent people from doing certain things that the society wouldn’t approve of. The main character Montag says “The Mechanical Hound slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating, softly illuminated kennel back in a dark corner of the firehouse.” (Fahrenheit 451, 24).
The second chapter is a kind of an invitation to discover the proverb phenomenon. Its main goal is to focus on possible definition(s) of a proverb, on the role that it plays in human worldview and in metaphorical structuring of our minds; moreover, in this chapter the readers will have a possibility to see the presence of the proverbs in multiple aspects of life, like art and mass media and, in fact, how they can perfectly fit into every context. This brief research was inspired by a scene from the movie “Amelie” (2001), directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. In this short scene, Gina, colleague of the main character, interrogates Nino, a man with whom Amelie has fallen in love, in order to be sure that Nino is a perfect match for Amelie; she then orders him to finish a set of proverbs. Nino manages to do it correctly, and he asks what was that activity supposed to check.
I chose the movie American history X and the theory is Sutherland’s differential Association theory (DAT). We look at many theories. In this theory people are taught that beliefs, involvements, behaviors, and attachments, can possess pro-social attachment. In the movie we see a correlation between the two brothers which shows social control theory, social bonding and social attachments. We then examine Edward Sutherland’s theory to begin to understand that, what we have learned from behaviors are taught.
Ideology The movie that I have chosen to analyze is the 2004 film Crash. This film emphasizes the intertwining cultures of today 's society and the conflicts faced from class, culture, stereotypes and racism. The explicit content of this film is to teach the audience that one person 's choices has an impact on another person or multiple people and to persuade the audience that we as a society need to change how we treat each other. The films overt message does generate social dialogue, however, this film can be interpreted by the audience through their own beliefs and behaviors causing some misinterpretation. In Crash, ideology is screaming that the audience needs to open their eyes to the harsh reality of today 's challenges and make a change.
From the in-depth movie analysis, this essay will be able to show that the media is able to influence the people and their stance towards certain topics by applying these media theories: agenda setting through gatekeeping, dramatization, and two-step flow of communication. The first theory, agenda setting through gatekeeping, is evident in the film. Agenda setting “looks on story selection as a determinant of public perceptions of issue importance” (McCombs, Shaw and Weaver, 7). The term gatekeeping is similarly used to “describe the way the media make decisions about what stories to discard or run and when and how much attention to give a story” (Laidlaw, 41). In the movie, the British media highlighted the death of Princess Diana and how the Royal Family was not showing enough grief.
Introduction I will be examining the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, through a sociocultural lens seeing that the social relationships among the characters can connect to particular concepts discussed this term. Throughout my analysis I will discuss social relations, social inequality, privilege/oppression, and social structures in relation to the film. Considering this perspective enables me to question the idea of ‘universal’ or ‘natural’ childhood and instead explore how young people exist within social hierarchies, and how adults within the film view young people inadequately. Rather than assume the powerlessness of youth, I will explore how young people resist social perceptions and expectations through resilience and resistance.
The movies I have selected for comparison of male and female stereotypes portrayed are Avengers and Hunger Games. Using the selected films will use them to elaborate how stereotypes are still evident up to date. In addition to that a comparison will be made on men a women stereotypes previously and currently. This will be done to evaluate how far we have come and how many changes have taken place since. Lastly on the conclusion will identify whether the stereotypes have changed or new strategies should apply for the future of film.
Shutter Island, a psychological thriller, directed by Martin Scorsese incorporates techniques throughout to reveal the truth in Shutter Island. The film, based on a missing patient investigation, turns out as a cover up psychological experiment designed to bring Edward (Teddy) Daniels back to sanity concludes to be the truth. This essay discusses that by analysing certain scenes, including the opening scene, Teddy and Chuck addresses Dr Cawley, and whislt Teddy and Chuck interview the patients. These three scenes assist to expose Shutter Island through film techniques such as camera angle and mise en scene. Firstly, the opening scene uses camera techniques and symbolism to highlight Teddy being a prisoner on Shutter Island.
