Have you ever noticed the minor details of differences and similarities of a written novel and a produced film? Some of these differences and similarities can be shown in the book, The Last of the Mohicans written by James Fenimore Cooper, and the movie adaptation of the book produced and filmed in 1992. Astonishingly, the book and movie portray the similarities of characters, weapons, and history. Where as the differences show scenery, clothing, and appearance. In the end, the movie and book are similar and different in a unique way.
He doesn’t know what to once he was exposed to the town. This is very usual in Tim Burton’s films. Tim Burton’s eerie style is best conveyed through his use of pan, establishing shot, and front/back lighting. Tim Burton, in Edward Scissorhands, uses pan to reveal the setting. For example when Peg walked in the mansion, Tim Burton used pan to show the setting.
While watching Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock, I was able to notice two distinct themes throughout the film. These two themes are a quote about actions speaking louder than words and suspense. Hitchcock also had many different elements in his film to make it successful. My favorite element he used was sound with the radio in the background, street noise, and other ongoing conversations. One main theme that was shown through out the film was the quote “actions speak louder than words”.
In Tim Burton’s movie Edward Scissors-hands, Shots and Framing is unique. It’s going to be about Edward Scissor-hands and the different Shots and Framing Tim Burton used. The Long-shots were mostly on like when Edward kept on leaving and when Peg found out where Edward lived. Also Long-shot on when it showed the factory in Edwards house. The movie had a lot of Close shots.
Burton didn’t intend to fade away it’’s dark elements. “Burton, however, embraces the dark elements.” As the reader can see, Burton’s inspiration comes from Grimm’s fairy tales and Dr. Seuss. In many of his films, Tim Burton, uses music and sound, lighting, and types of shots to set the setting and tone of his films.
It was directed by Simon Henwood, who had designed West’s Glow in the dark tour (Songfacts 2015:1). In this music video, West tries to represent the feelings he experienced during the breakup by referenceing Patrick Bateman’s apartment of the film, American Psycho, as well as some traditional african warriors, dancers and other signifiers (Dorian 2013:1). I believe that this music video represents Africans and African-ness. The video does not use one signifier but a collection of them. This is seen in the various types of body paint, beads, masks and dress.
Fitzgerald would have preferred this type of music for this scene as it deepens the real story behind Gatsby and the type of place that they are meeting in, one filled with corruption and crime. There have been several renditions of the novel The Great Gatsby originally created by author F. Scott Fitzgerald, some of the most popular being the 2013 film produced by Baz Luhrmann and the 1974 film by Jack Clayton. If Fitzgerald were to still be alive and have viewed both flicks I believe that he would have preferred the 2013 version as it has stronger details and a deeper connection to the novel. When watching this movie you can see the FItzgerald flare of heightened details
For the film industry, genre is a category that classifying similar films together roughly based on their similar story content and generic formulas: fixed pattern of the way the story is described. There are many kinds of film genre, such as action, romance, comedy, musical, horror, science fiction and so on. Different film genre has different particular format of context, way of narration, purpose and audience. Under the category above, there are more sub-genres grouping by years and period, by country and languages (national cinema), by series (the Harry Potter series), by style, by narrative structure (narrate from the beginning or the end, narration interspersed with flashbacks), by purpose (tragedy and comedy are designed to let audience feel different emotions), by audience (animation is usually for
Behind each movie lie the meaningful aspects and significant features worth noticing. All movies and books can be carefully examined and interpreted. Thomas C. Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor provides a new view on interpreting literature. In the novel, Foster identifies and analyzes common patterns, themes, and motifs found in literature, many of which are also present in Disney’s film, Maleficent. This movie showcases several of his ideas, including quests, flight, geography, and symbolism.
Aristotelian Argument: Representation of the Great Gatsby The two movies, The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen had quite similarities in the character’s to the novel. Both films created a significant portrayal of The Great Gatsby. The films had a similar theme as in the novel towards reliving in the past. Characters, like Nick and Gil, were selfish and didn 't want anything but to succeed in what they wanted.
Society, in general, judges anybody that is different and compares them to standards that are difficult to reach. They treat the outcasts differently based off their appearance and social status. Tim Burton, a visionary filmmaker, would agree that society’s ultimate goal is perfection. In order to achieve that, everybody must be the same. In his films, Burton uses contrast and exaggerated characters to convey the idea that looks can be deceiving.
“If you’ve ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can’t be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays with in you.” says Burton. Burton usually has an outcast in every film. The outcast is usually a lead role or the lead role, because Burton can relate to it most. Burton’s unique and dark fantasy includes the use of lighting and mise en scène to convey the idea that outsiders do not want to be labeled.
