A fantasy world is something always happens in stories and films. Both The Pillowman and The Pan’s Labyrinth include a fantastic imaginary world, it is obviously an escape from harsh reality to some extent. But one is pessimistic, one gives hope. The following essay will explain more about differences of fantasy world in the two stories. How a fantasy world reflects psychological feeling inside our mind.
This might be the part where most of the eyes of the viewers are looking at. Ways in which the different characters are pictured has been seen, and there is looking at the screens with great infatuation for the characters to be getting more and more indulged in the movie and its realism. The magical realism is the reality of the different movies that are stereotypical of the age of the different people that have been used to portray the different characters and their motives. The connection of the two cultures and the folkloric one in the real time of the 21st century has to be the one that is getting connected. This changes the image of the film and gets the characters running as a role model in the movies train of thought.
Have you ever read a book, and thought this would be a wonderful movie? Well, that’s not always the case due to when someone watches a movie that’s based on a book, nine times out of ten they come home disappointed. Although, in certain cases, the book and the movie come close to being the same. The crucible play and movie are fairly similar in numerous aspects and one could watch the movie and understand the main points of the play. When deciding between books and movies, picking the book is better because books retain more detail in the dialogue and setting, and reading the book can give one a valuable understanding of the message in the story.
As is evidenced by Sofia Samatar’s “Ogres of East Africa” and William J. Wilson’s “Black Forest” section of his “Afric-American Picture Gallery,” fantasy serves as an outlet where the world we know can be flipped upside down. Ogres can resist the encroachment of “humans,” a race of milk white people can be expunged from the world, and a black man can enslave a white man. Where in the real world, racism has seem to run amuck, infiltrating virtually every part of the society we know, fantasy provides a place for all of that to be challenged and
Some might argue that the success of Stranger Things simply comes down to good casting, an intriguing plot and a pleasing peppering of Eighties nostalgia throughout which appeals to an audience of a certain age. Yet, this story is nostalgic in another way too - the main characters are simply “good guys” who care about each other. This works, and avoids feeling one-dimensional and dated, largely because of the inspired casting. This is a heartening message to viewers in this era of deeply-flawed, anti-hero styled protagonists in film and TV. Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, and Breaking Bad are three examples of hit shows in recent years which have main characters who while often true-to-life in their complexity and fascinating to watch, can be deeply depressing too, because they almost always seem to do the wrong thing.
Most young children grow up watching Disney movies, which causes girls to want to grow up and be princess and allow the boys to want to be the white knight who saves all. Only recently with films like Frozen and Brave have females characters not really needing a male to save them. The Gender roles in Disney Animations paper states, “Aladdin, Pocahontas, and Mulan, each princess in these movies are more independent” (Yerby). This however is incorrect due to Jasmine needing to be saved by Aladdin, Mulan trying to be a man, and Pocahontas only saved John Smith due to love and not the means of their tribe. Even movies that do not include humans have stereotypes like in Lion King with how the lionesses are unable to gain the strength to overthrow Scar until Simba has returned (Yerby).
This is because it succeeds in amalgamating the erstwhile and present day perceptions of life and communal affairs. This is best evidenced by the fact that while most of his characters are fashioned from the Victorian times, they are fashioned together in the manner of a super-team. The story is developed on the backdrop of ensuring the fate of the British Empire remains unchanged (Habibzadeh & Marcovitch 3). The movie version offers extensive misrepresentation of the contents that exist in the comic version. For example, the comic does not feature drag racing or any other form of motor vehicle competition by the different characters.
The experiences they go through show the never-ending fear is taken advantage of by the government in order to assert total power over the country. The film represents the overall genre of dystopia through key features like fear of the outside world, restriction on individual freedom, and the continual supervision of the citizen’s lives. The nature of dystopia, unfortunately, exists in some of today’s societies, and using this film as an example, countries should use any means to avoid the total corruption of the whole nation and also help others escape their dystopian
