By using the upbeat music, the audience is filled with joy and delight, knowing that charlie’s dream came of getting a ticket came true. In particular, in Edward Scissorhands, diegetic sounds were used when Edward was stuck in the vault.
In the Poem “Oranges” by Gary Soto the theme of the piece is, to sacrifice for others in the name of love is worth everything you have. the theme of the story, though, is improved upon by literary devices. The first literary device present in the poem is Simile. The simile helps compare the items in the story that the main character talks about or saw while in the Drugstore with his girl on the date.

“And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King, have grown so tired of the same old thing.” Jack the Pumpkin King from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas is tired of his world being so repetitive; he was ready for something new, something exciting.

Lastly, he likes to have most of his actors in modern clothes while he has one that is in exoctic costuming. Like in his film “Edward Scissorhands”.

This is best done by comparing two of his films, namely, Romeo and Juliette and The Great Gatsby. Although both these films have a large variety of common factors, such as the spectacular parties, the use of music and symbolism, it is how these techniques are executed that show us how he has evolved as a director. One technique that Baz Luhrmann has mastered is his ability to show the importance of a specific idea. This is clearly seen in his films like Romeo and Juliette, where he emphasized on the importance of violence by using guns rather than swords, he went even further in The Great Gatsby where he made Gatsby’s parties wild and crazy, not something that actually happened in the time when Gatsby is
