There are far more things I like about Pontypool then I dislike and I want to make that clear. Director Bruce McDonald crafts a solid horror film that delivers on the horror. Pontypool starts with radio shock jock Grant Mazzy (Stephen McHattie) driving to work on a dark snowy day in the small town of Pontypool. At a red light a woman in distress appears out the dark and
The virtual world also seems to have great “graphics” if not realistic, and how main character physically entered the Nethergrave from his bedroom. The stories fit into the category of science fiction proudly, though the Sound of Thunder pulled it off better, and had a greater climax that really pulls you into
10 Cloverfield lane (2016) follows Michelle after she awakens from a car accident and finds herself chained to a pipe in the wall. She soon learns that she was brought to the ‘basement” by the rather intimidating Howard. The basement is actually a doomsday bunker with three occupants: black belt in conspiracy theory, Howard: his former repairman, Emmett: and Michelle, whom Howard saved from her smashed car. With an utterly confusing opening and closing critics initially despised the film, but then praised it for its tension building soundtrack; it is nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award. 10 Cloverfield lane un-praised for its less than climatic ending, is praised for its soundtrack and tension building camera shots that create the white-knuckle psychological thriller.
After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spots in this musical.
Stephen Kings gave each of them a different purpose. If not, then all the movies would have basically had the same story line. You have a girl that can move things with her mind, a rabbit dog, and a car that is alive. None of those are the same, but they all had the same mission, and that’s to kill. It is amazing to know that even though we know that a horror movie is going to involve a killer, just like the rest of them, we still want to watch.
The juxtaptions of a slow tracking shot to the montage editing of the altercation is a superb way to add tension to the scene. Additionally, the Coen brothers move the perspective of the camera around a lot and cut between them. They have some of the best shot reverse shot sequences in any films. They don’t bind themselves to just that and move the camera around a lot like the long tracking shots of Ray burying Marty alive. Finally, they are able to add a lot of dramatic irony to scenes by giving the audience more information than the characters have to build tension while keeping the scene easy to follow.
Many grow up playing war or watching shows displaying how easy war is for the protagonist giving the impression that war is a game. What Billy Pilgrim the main character sees in Dresden is gruesome and ruins the thrill of war. The character Pilgrim describes that “There were hundreds of corpse mines operating by and by. They didn 't smell bad at first, were wax museums. But then the bodies rotted and liquefied, and the stink was like mustard gas and roses”(pg.94).
But the Effects which I liked most were the feather and the editing with the original presidents. The clips where Forrest met presidents, seemed very realistic that it felt like it really happened. The ones who edited the scenes were really skilled software engineers. The movie got very interesting and fun to watch with this. I liked the feather, because the movie started with the music and the feather.
'The Green Inferno ' 2 out of 5 dead bodies recommended Gore Scale - The whole movie is like the elevator scene in 'The Shining Body Count - 1 dead person Nudity - Enough not to let your kids watch this movie. The Green Inferno is a campy, gorefest remake of 'Cannibal Holocaust ' directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever). Who takes you into a world unlike any of us know, the amazon tribes as well as the rainforest. You know those types of tribes, that haven 't been recorded by any known person, because they live so deep in the rainforest... Yes those tribes.
We enjoyed watching it though it made us shed into tears. Overall, Awakenings is an entertaining, yet poignant film that is eloquently laced with poetry and a beautiful score by Randy Newman. This is easily the most powerful tearjerker that I 've ever seen, thanks in large part to the brilliant performances by Williams and De Niro. But to be fair, the whole cast was excellent, and they were helped by a script that was nearly perfect. For me, the scenes with Miller proved to be the most emotional, but really, the whole film was heartwarming or heartbreaking on some level.
