Red Pill: Truth The truth may hurt for a moment, but a lie will hurt forever.People that don’t accept or want the truth don’t want their dreams and illusions destroyed. The protagonists in the movies “The Matrix” and the “The Truman Show” figure out who they truly are and perhaps their purpose in life because they chose to discover it rather than accepting what they believed wasn’t reality. In “The Matrix”, Neo chose to take the red pill of truth rather than the blue pill of ignorance, which left him with no regrets in the end. In “The Truman Show”, Truman decides to figure out what's abnormal about his “reality” because he knew something was not right, and wanted to get out. Even in today’s society ignorance is a definite problem because
However, this is not the kind of movie I take interest in; I am more about action and thriller, not much of a documentary type of person. To me this piece, was a bit annoying since it didn’t real seem like a kids friendly movie, they were no jokes or laughs in the film. Everything was just a bit to serious. However the story that the author was trying to convey, I believe it reached me. But, I am still curious to know that if they were treated so harshly how did they make it to America, shouldn’t many of them have died?
The symbolism and allegorical features of the film are both extremely vague and contradictory, making any one interpretation difficult to justify and easy to disprove. When interpreting a work as an allegory, it is always worth paying some attention to the intent of the writers, and the scriptwriters of High Noon intended to write it as an allegory for blacklisting. The easiest way to see this interpretation is to see Sheriff Kane as a victim of blacklisting. His fruitless search for help in fighting Miller symbolizes how alone those brought in front of the House of Un-American Activities were. Their former friends would not help them,
How important could a small scar be to a novel? In The Kite Runner movie directed by Marc Forster, the absence of the harelip scar on Hassan takes away a significant piece of the story for the audience that have not read the novel by Khaled Hosseini. The elimination of this small detail removes subtle hints that Baba is Hassan’s father. This omission, along with the impact of the poor acting in that scene, diminishes the parallels that can be drawn between Amir and Hassan and affects Amir’s redemption arc. The fact that the scar was left out leaves holes in the plot.
When Esteban finds Blanca, his murderous intentions do not end, “[he is] unable to restrain his evil character and he charged at her with his horse, whip in the air, beating her mercilessly, lash upon lash, until the girl fell flat and rigid to the ground…”Who is it? Tell me who it is or I’ll kill you!”” (Allende 199) The violence is not only emphasized through his intention, but also through his actions in the line. Esteban beats his daughter mercilessly with his whip, until she falls flat to the ground. Allende’s successful use of imagery through this line allows the reader to visualize and feel the pain Esteban’s violence inflicts on Blanca. The reader not only grasps conflict between Esteban and Blanca, but also the conflict between Esteban and the people of Tres Marias.
The movie “Sorry Wrong Number” is superior compared to the story. This is because it uses filmmaking techniques such as lighting, sound, and editing to build suspense while the story depends on the reader’s imagination, which is not always good because not everyone has a good/creative imagination. To start off, there isn't a whole bunch of characterization in the story which can be confusing for the reader because the story is mainly Mrs.Stevenson talking with the operators and the Sergeant, it sure would be nice if we got a visual description of them. In the story, there aren't any description of Sergeant Duffy, George, and the other small part characters which is confusing because they do talk a lot even though they don’t have the biggest parts the readers want to about the small characters. In the story Sergeant Duffy states, “Just now I’ve got
Another factor which impacts the theme and meaning is sound. Non-diegetic sound cannot be heard by the characters but is designed for audience reaction only. An example might be ominous music for foreshadowing. Diegetic sound is sound that could logically be heard by the characters in the film. These play a role in a relationship with visual elements as fights scenes would play faster, harsher background music in sync with the actions being shown, and emotional, intimate scenes would play soft, classical or delicate background music to bring out the emotions in the actors and the audience.
There are a lack of jump cuts because this sort of editing is not required to be used in order to create an effect or sense of pace for the audience in the same way the film Psycho does, in fact, there is no need for the audience to have a sense of pace in order to create suspense as the film is not intended to make the audience feel excited for what is about to come, but rather to show what life is like as a hollywood actor. The lack of complex editing and the use of the same type of shots rather than an assembly of multiple different shots of the same thing relaxes the audience instead of putting them on the edge of their seats like Pyscho would. The audience that the film Singin’ in
On the other hand the fact that he hypothetically copied Vermeer’s process leaves the viewer questioning if it was worthy of the title “art”. Although, if the audience has a different perspective the situation may be different. If it was well known that art was done in the way Tim implies it is done, then there would be no questioning. The fact that this process of using the Camera Obscura is new to the audience leaves many doubts. Everything Tim does throughout the film could also be considered the opposite of art as well, because there is this stigma with art, the audience has a hard time seeing Tim as an artist.
While I think it is a childish point of view and that she is a little too sensitive, I can still see it. I do not think that The Lion King was doing any stereotyping, nor do I think that Disney intended any stereotyping whilst making this movie. People are allowed to have their own opinions, no matter how stupid and irrational I think they are. Normally, reading people’s reviews on movies and similar things doesn’t make me angry, but reading Margaret’s opinion and her review of this fantastic movie has succeeded in making me a little frustrated. She even begins to talk about feminism in her review.
The worst part is that you know better. You know it’s being dramatized for the sake of the show or film, but something inside of you just won’t let you not care. This messy thought process also applies to me when it comes to the Hall of Fame. I know that I should know better. I know that I shouldn’t care that much.
