For instance, Disney 's 'Aladdin ' in 1992 is an example of how he established his talents as a voice actor the role of the Genie, it showed is genius and how he can come up with so many voices. The performances from him shook the entertainment world generated a lot of revenues. Even more pleasurable moment was perhaps of his years and career came in the year 1997.

The Godfather (1972) is said to be one of the greatest films ever made. When this movie was released in 1972, it was nominated for Ten Academy Awards and it won three: Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. The film was adapted from the book with the same name written by award winning author of mafia fiction, Mario Puzo. This film takes place in a span of ten years following the life of Don Corleone, the head of the Corleone Crime Family. It was a film that changed the history of cinema, introducing a very talented filmmaker and several acting legends in the telling of a story of a Sicilian Crime Family.
This is more or less his story, and he carries this entire film on his shoulders, despite having very few films under his belt, this actor is going to be one to look out for in the coming years. The same can be said for the actor who plays Eazy-E, Jason Mitchell. This young man stole the entire film, though I think O’Shea Jackson Jr. gave the best performance of the film, I think Mitchell’s is my favorite. He expertly portrays Eazy-E with the signature gangster swagger, but he matches it with the kindness that you only hear about in interviews. Eazy-E was reportedly a very kind and caring person, despite what the media would have you believe, and you don’t really see that often from a rapper, and the way Mitchell perfectly captured the kindness without conflicting the tough
Creed During our lifetimes of watching cinema we have grown accustomed to watching the great underdog movies such as Rocky. The way the movie was so captivating to audiences for several decades made us always cheer for the underdog who somehow beats the odds to reach his goal. But rarely do we see a story of a champion coming from the higher social economic status. In the movie creed this is what happens. The lead character Adonis played by (Michael P Jordon) he plays Creed the illegitimate son of the fictional boxer character Apollo Creed in the Rocky series.
The Godfather (1972) is a one of a kind movie; it is even considered by many an American classic. The American Film Institute (AFI) has The Godfather listed at number two in 2008 as one of the greatest films in American culture today. This movie has everything from great action scenes to world famous actors. This movie stars Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, and James Cann among many others. The Godfather portrays one major theme throughout the entire movie and that is violence.
“A lot of people say, 'I always knew Lucky Luciano as a very smooth, very elegant, very powerful man.' All the accounts of him as an older man were that he was very genteel but he still had the look of smothered violence behind his eyes.” (Vincent Piazza, BrainyQuote) This is a quote from a famous actor called Vincent Piazza, who had been known for the act of Lucky Luciano in a TV series called Boardwalk Empire. Charles “Lucky” Luciano has been the most researched and discussed American gangster of all the time, his name was widely circulated in the gangland of prohibition bootlegging and formation of the Five Families. (Montaldo Charles, crime.about.com) Lucky Luciano was born in 1897, in Sicily, he and his family moved to America in 1906.
These perfect portrayals break down there, however, from Tobey Maguire playing Nick Carraway. In the novel, Nick is trying to get his way to the top by befriending all of these wealthy, upper-class people introduced to him by Gatsby. His American Dream, of course, being full of wealth, women, and success. That being said in the movie, Nick is a lovable and sweet character who seems like he could commit no offenses. Not only that but casting Tobey Maguire,seems like the wrong choice as he seemed lifeless and insecure throughout the entire movie.
Burton uses sound in his movies to do exactly that. In his movies, he uses non-diegetic sound to help build suspense and to entertain the viewer. In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Burton builds suspense by using very intense music that only the viewer can hear as Jake goes to open a door, thus making the viewer sit on the edge of their seat waiting for the next couple of seconds to define the fate of the character. In Big Fish, Burton uses a dark and menacing musical tone while Edward is fighting with the big fish for his wedding ring back; then, right when he released the fish, the music changed to a mystical and happy tone to express Edward’s triumph and to add to the beauty of that scene. In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie.
Throughout the movie, Dustin Hoffman, John Malkovich, and Kate Reid all provided an outstanding performance by ensuring that their facial expressions, body language, and emotions always shined through all the while they were creating realistic characters that were easily believable by the audience. Dustin Hoffman was the first actor that caught my attention in this movie. Although this is probably because he played the main character of the play, I found his passion in this performance to also be a sole reason as to why his acting was so intriguing. Hoffman truly put on an incredible performance in this movie, and a great deal of it had to do with his facial expressions and body language. Hoffman’s most effective scene in this film was the scene where Willy Loman got fired from his job.
As for me, it is impossible to imagine a more powerful acting performance. With no doubts, DiCaprio proved that he is a talented actor long ago, ever since his teen roles. His Hugh Glass is a man of few words. During the movie, actor utters only a few replicas, but that is where a major professional challenge lies. DiCaprio brilliantly handles the needed tasks - he spits blood, he eats raw fish and liver, he sleeps in the carcass of a horse, he kills, steals, runs, and all this is performed at the highest acting level.
