Stanley Kubrick has an impressive resume of movies that he has blessed audiences with over the years. From The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, and Full Metal Jacket, his movies have reached critical acclaim. One film changed the entire outlook for the future of the science fiction genre with Kubrick’s 2001, A Space Odyssey. This space and time thriller left audiences blown away and slightly confused do to story the film illustrated. The themes 2001, A Space Odyssey presents are human evolution and the perils that come with it.
Paranormal Activity Sequel The first time I heard that there would be a sequel to Paranormal Activity I was psyched. The original was so unique and effective that I could only wonder what Oren Peli had in store for us next. Peli is the writer/director of the original and the producer of the sequel. Michael R. Perry wrote the screenplay and story this time around. Perry has a long resume of work that he has done on popular television series such as Law and Order: SVU.
The Great Gatsby was precisely effective throughout the film through the characters, the themes and the scenes. Baz Luhrmann’s cast selection was excellent and extremely brought the movie to life, and still adapted to the novel. Leonardo DiCaprio and other star characters made the novel come straight to life and they all acted sensationally well, from the star to the background people. They brought excitement to the film and gave us great images to
The movie characters and plot fit well with the basic hero story structures. As we can see, popular movies use the patterns introduced by Joseph Campbell to attract audiences. They involve not only the archetypes of characters, but also the progress of the story. Therefore, the Hero’s Journey can be adapted to this
Leaders are ever-present in our world today and have a big impact in many people’s lives. American author John Maxwell gives us his view on leaders “Leaders become great, not because of their power but, because of their ability to empower others” (Inspirational). There are many ways that people see leaders. Great leaders influence people in many types of ways. There are many movies that show great leaders, specifically, Tom Hanks in the movie “Saving Private Ryan”.
This makes him an adaptable director. Reiner was not the only candidate for the job of director for this film however, he was decidedly the best choice due to his recent breakthrough to film directing through recent movies he had directed because he had done so well. All in all, Reiner has many qualities of a great director and created quite an amazing
His movies are mostly great hits for the dramatic scenes, thrilling nature, and the great quality. Also, he has inspired lots of people to become directors themselves, or to go into the theatre business. For example, the two directors James Cameron (who has made films The Terminator, The Abyss, Aliens, Titanic, and Avatar) and Neil Blomkamp, who is a more recent director who directed District 9 and Elysium. He opens people 's eyes to their true passion. Although he inspires directors, he also motivates random people
William Shakespeare has undeniably influenced the course of literature, but he has also affected our modern pop culture. Some universal themes he analyzes within his text include, but are not limited to: appearance vs reality, order vs disorder, greed, lust, free will, and love. Because these topics are ones the public can relate to, many of his plays have been adapted into movies and other forms of storytelling to further expose younger viewers to these themes at an age-appropriate level. Theses movies include: West Side Story (1961) which directly take their plots for Romeo and Julie (1595-96); the Disney film The Lion King (1994) which is an adaptation of Hamlet (1600); and the popular teen film She’s the Man (2006) which is a modernized version of Twelfth Night or What You Will (1599) (Royal Shakespeare Company.)
Unique from The Matrix and Star Wars, Star Trek has pioneered its own style of religious affiliation. Jindra writes, “The ‘positive view of the future’ portrayed in Star Trek is one of the most common reasons fans give for their attraction to the show” (162). Drawn to Star Trek’s futuristic utopia, fans discover a world not far beyond the capacity of human ability. “Star Trek mixes the scientific and the technical ideas of America with its egalitarian ideology, to produce a progressive world were people from all races work together in a vast endeavor to expand knowledge” (163). In practicing the positive humanistic philosophy of Star Trek, humanity works together in bettering the world.
Besides Felix being in this story, I really like the way you’re approaching this story. Nathanael 's alter ego makes me laugh because I always imagined him to be a smartass if he ever became a hero. And I’m glad someone has finally wrote him like that. As for Nino, I don’t know how I feel about him yet.
I believe that Hatchet did a better job of explaining the story using imagery and foreshadowing. In Hatchet, it did a great job of listing the details of how Brian was feeling, and what he was thinking. For example, in the book when he created the fire, it showed how excited and proud he was. The book also listed descriptive detail and it had more events. I often found that Hatchet was terrific at including constant of imagery.
She also builds ethos when she explained that she viewed the launch in person. It appeals to pathos a lot because the audience and Ayn herself believe in individualism, freedom, and reason. They both will appreciate how the launch was such a great accomplishment for man. Ayn in detail explains why the launch was so great.
I want to be a Producer/Screenwriter and I truly believe that attending ClexaCon will help me become the best I can be. I want to create content, stories with positive representation. It seems silly that one should care so much about seeing yourself on TV or in movies. What difference would it make? Then I remember the first time I saw myself represented, and it was in that moment that I realized that I was allowed to exist and I want to create stories to help others realize the same.
