Director Frank Darabont’s debut movie managed to win numerous awards, captivate the hearts and minds of the public, and has remained as one of the most touching and contemplative pieces of film work in modern times. As a critic once said, “The Shawshank Redemption is one of those films that is a true work of both art and magic.” (James Brundage). In this movie, we discover that an individual eventually finds that the very institution he or she spurned may be the only thing keeping him or her grounded. This phenomenon is one known as institutionalization and it is showcased as one of the main themes in The Shawshank Redemption. More than a mere prison drama, The Shawshank Redemption portrays the birth of an institutionalized society and its causes and effects on the individual.

I believe that it is for these reasons that Slaughterhouse- five won the Prix du Jury at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, the Hugo Award and the Saturn Award. Overall, I would give Slaughterhouse-Five a 3.5 star rating. In my opinion, it was such a great adaptation of the novel. Individuals that are great fans of the book, will definitely fall in love with the movie. However, I felt like the parts of the novel I enjoyed the most were not implicated in the movie.
Today movies are one of the prime sources of entertainment. Whether it’s spending time with a significant other, hanging out with friends, or anything else, movies are one of the most versatile forms of entertainment that can satisfy everyone’s unique preferences. Amongst movies, the most popular genres include comedy, action, dramas, and countless more. In 1957, Mike Nichols released The Graduate, a romantic comedy that would remain popular even fifty years after its release. Although the movie is renowned for its engaging plot and distinctive comedic elements, The Graduate tells a story about college graduate Benjamin Braddock’s affair with Mrs. Robinson, a close family friend and the prevalent theme of discovering one’s identity.
Last night, I watched the movie ‘Airlift’ and I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie is gripping, the performances and direction were definitely above the average ‘Bollywood’ standard and Akshay Kumar gives one of the best performances of his career as Ranjit Katyal – the man who led 170,000 Indians stranded in Kuwait, to their homeland. Now if you are movie buff, that’s all you should know to enjoy the movie. A movie is meant to entertain and if entertainment is what you want, go get hold of a ticket now and enjoy the poignant story of the fictional Ranjit Katyal. Fictional?

Shane Black has casually become a genre unto himself. Before trying his hand at directing - which is also a genre unto itself, he dreamt-up (meaning he wrote them) some of the most beloved movies of all-time, such as Letha Weapon, The Long Kiss Goodnight, and Last Action Hero. Okay, maybe the “most beloved movies of all-time” designation is a stretch, but that doesn’t change the fact that Black certainly has a distinct style - and as such, a legion of followers. With his directing debut, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005), Shane Black rocked the cinematic landscape, creating one the modern era’s great neo-noir crime films. And, if you think that statement is a stretch - well, I’m prepared to fight you tooth and nail over it.

When talking about films, we first need to know the different types of flicks that are being produced, each type has their own genre and director. Michael Curtiz, who was a Hungarian American film director, directed a film titled Casablanca. This movie is a classic film noir film that is considered to be timeless. The story is good and the characters were one of a kind, the acting alone defines how great the movie is. In addition, the directing is the best because the flick is one of the greatest romantic films of all time, but we did not see that much romance scene in the movie.
