Jaws has a lot of film techniques but the ones that stood out to me the most were really exciting like the eye level shot, where the woman is in the water and all you see is her face and some people swimming behind her. She appears to be pretty calm in the start but then she sees he 's sharks fin out of nowhere. The camera then points to to the shark fin. Then the eye level shot points back to her where she makes the expression that she would have if a real shark were to be there, which gives us a feel for what we would do if we were in her place. Its effect/purpose was to allow us the viewers to that perspective of the shark at times.
People say a picture is worth a thousand words. Just about every picture has rhetorical elements incorporated into their design. In this case, the well-crafted poster for Steven Spielberg’s film, Jaws, implements the use of ethos, pathos and logos in an attempt to get its audience to see the film.

Numerous types of lighting were exposed in Jaws. The natural light makes the pictures more accurate. The capability to adjust the vividness makes the frightening parts even creepier.

Negative space present every time the shark is approaching. Darkness space aids to generate a frightened environment. While lighting is used also for
For example, Jaws was the first film that featured a new type of insane character, the giant shark. “Jaws changed the face of American cinema, influencing the next generation of filmmakers to eye summer release dates, high-concept ideas, easy marketability, teaser trailers, TV spots, media junkets, merchandising, and the almighty dollar” (Stephens). In summary, the movie itself brought about many changes, but the shark dreamed up and created by Spielberg inspired new subjects and characters in other future films. Without Jaws, the film industry would not have chased after these new ideas and concepts like having an enormous shark as the main character. Furthermore, Spielberg was one of the first to bring aliens into a motion picture and with that came inspiration. “With E.T., a fairy tale about a boy's friendship with an alien stranded on Earth, Spielberg made one of the most cherished films of its time. The movie made him a celebrity in his own right and even garnered him a United Nations Peace Medal. Spielberg's influence on U.S. culture in this period cannot be overestimated. Indiana Jones, E.T., and the shark [Jaws] became durable icons” (“Steven”). Given that, Steven Spielberg created a masterpiece by bringing in an alien for the first time into film, which therefore created an icon and symbol of American culture. While the new subject of aliens changed the film industry, it also paved the way for more alien movies to make their debut. Overall, the never-before-seen subjects Spielberg brought into the game changed the industry and movies
There 's something to be said for the kind of horror movie that while not actually scary, at least in my opinion anyway, remains incredibly re-watchable. Maybe Phantoms is scary, but lost some of the chills somewhere around the twentieth viewing. Strangely I feel that Phantoms may be more well-known from the Kevin Smith film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, rather than for its own merits. Though I do have to agree that Ben Affleck is pretty bomb in this film, he 's not the best performance. That doesn 't even go to Peter O 'Toole, but rather Liev Schreiber. Who does a fantastic job and simply nails it. Phantoms is part of a personal stable of horror films that always get dragged out when I watch to watch a film, but wont be able to give it my

“The Law of gravity is like the law of attraction.” In the movie The Secret, it uses many logical fallacies and the logical chain of reasoning to argue that if you know the “Secret,” then everything you want or everything you are attracted to you will get it. The logical chain of reasoning used in this movie consists of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos and the logical fallacies committed are Equivocation, False Cause, Slippery Slope, Hasty Generalization, and Black or White. If one or more logical fallacies are committed and/or one part of the logical reasoning is not strong enough then your argument is not strong enough and if your argument is not strong enough then it will fall apart. But it does not always take one fallacy to break down a whole arguement.
When you think of a zombie, what comes to mind? To most people a zombie is a cannibalistic creature that rises from the dead and is often linked with diseases. In the film Night of the Living Dead this is exactly what we get. The zombies are the main element of horror in this film and this is what holds our attention. Whereas in the film I Walked With a Zombie, the true terror is not being killed by zombies, but of becoming a zombie oneself. Even though the zombies in both these films are different, they both have something in common, both these films use zombies and their historical backgrounds in order to make these creature more realistic and to fill us with fear which in the end makes us wonder if zombies truly do exist.

Hitchcock Etudes were composed by Nicole Lizée in 2014, and released on her album Bookburners. With a combination of disjointed soundtrack music and dialog with similarly altered video segments, Lizée reconstructs a whole new experience of the Hitchcock films. Watching Lizée’s composition I really appreciated and enjoyed the way she deconstructed and recreated the works. As a Hitchcock fan I really enjoyed the new sense of terror and romance she brought to the piece.
