Tybalt does not see things peaceful like Benvolio. He prefers violence over peace and pretends to be judge, jury, and executioner for the Capulets. Tybalt’s pride in his name causes much violence and the deaths of many characters. The houses’ pride in their names affects everyone around them but they are too caught up in their own feud to care. An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio.
Another example would be when Holden feels sad and lonesome.The last example is when Holden has thoughts of suicide. Holden feels guilty because he doesn’t understand anything that is around him.

Lighting is used to show when things are dark and mysterious, or bright and joyful, Burton uses lots of dark lighting but throws in scenes with brighter lights as well. In Edward Scissorhands the mansion where Edward was created is dark with very little sunlight coming in through the few windows. They way the lighting is used makes the place feel creepy and lonely, unlike the town not so far way which is very bright and colorful with pinks, greens, oranges, and blues. The town is happier looking with lots of sun, making the dark mansion stick out. Also in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Burton made Charlie’s home like Edwards mansion, dark.
Edward Scissorhands, by Tim Burton is a strange film that focuses on using visuals to to help tell the story and this is very distinguishable in the scene where Edward is given a makeover by Peg. This scene’s camera angles, costumes and dialogue all add to making this humorous to watch. Camera angles and shot Camera angles and shots are how the camera is placed to film the movie and can help express a range of things. The camera angles in this scene are mostly close ups at level.

In the move Corpse Bride, it shows a close up of Emily when Victor told her “Why can’t you understand? It was a mistake I would never marry you.” This shows the pain she felt when Victor told her that; you could see it in her eyes and her facial expression that she was pained by his words, but it also goes back to a close up to Victor after the audience sees Emily’s reaction to show that he knows what he said wounded her so he got disappointed about it also. Burton uses low-key lighting but with bright and dark colors. In the movie Edward Scissorhands, Edward’s mansion is dark which makes it stand out from the colorful houses around the neighborhood. When Peg goes to the mansion, it seems like it would be scary with dead grass, no flowers or any sort of living plant life but when she goes through the gate the landscaping is beautiful and bright, the lawn is full of living grass and lively red flowers.
Tim Burton has an amazing cinematic sound style that he uses in his film, “Edward Scissorhands”, to create an alluring and dramatic soundtrack and background sound selection. For instance, in the film, there was a scene where Peg hands Edward some clothes and sent him to her daughter’s room to go change. Edward then struggles to put the clothes on because of his fearful scissor hands so Peg ends up helping him out. In this scene, Burton uses very noticeable snipping sounds and the sound of rustling clothes to create a very comedic yet also stressing scene for Edward. The sounds are very diegetic and can be noticed by both the characters in the scene and the audience watching it.
Later a couple sees him lying there but are too scared to help him because he was wearing the royals jacket and were afraid of the other gangs.

While the chorus of men are unable to believe Cassandra due to the curse, the men are also ‘blind’ and do not suspect Clytaemestra of wanting to kill her husband. In the play of “Agamemnon”, the title character is metaphorically blind. He is unable to see that his actions have consequences that will affect him in the future. Due to his actions during the Trojan War, and his actions when he returns home, Agamemnon cannot foresee or prevent his own death. His death in turn causes a chain reaction that affects every major character in the play.
Both Fevry (2016) and Rushing (2014) focus on niche areas of film in their findings giving depth into this research and building on the themes already explored. In conclusion, the literature discussed in this paper has outlined the importance for film makers and other media forums to show an interest in nostalgia and nostalgic themes. Creating familiarity for the audience within films has shown how the audience react positively to the use of nostalgia and relating themes in the films. Genre specific investigations such as literature focussing on sci - fi and animation have revealed gaps in this research within cinema.
