The concepts of these movies seem as if they would have no similarities, yet they are a lot more alike than one would think. Midnight Cowboy was an enjoyable movie. My main critic would be the flashbacks. I felt as if they did not fully tie into the story line. The choppy styled cinematography did not flow smoothly with the rest of the movie.
The Buchanans, Jordan, Gatsby, Wolfsheim are all seen as successful but are they really? No one knows the real them, what 's really under all the wealth and allusions of their facade. This shows that any success they achieve is really worthless because it doesn 't help anyone and is really just for show. Although for Gatsby Nick took his time to get to know him and he discovered that all of Gatsby’s success was for one purpose only: Daisy. Gatsby used the American dream to build his wealth to get Daisy.
' It 's interesting to see how much Tarantino resamples from different genre movies into his own movies. We all know that Tarantino is a cinephile and a movie nerd. It would be important to start from his use of music in his stylistic titles sequences or opening sequence of every film. All his movies from 'Reservoir Dogs ' to 'Hateful Eight ' have very peculiar audio-visual styles for the opening sequences. Use of music in his movies is another topic of discussion.
Proving their ability to stay in touch with the latest trends, they released Size Isn't Everything (1993), incorporating light hip-hop rhythms on the minor hit "Paying the Price of Love." Like much of the group's earlier work, the album is marked by Barry's high falsetto vocals. In 1997 the group members were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an important recognition of their endurance and influence. This honor led to the recording of a new album, Still Waters (1997). The minor hit "Alone" contains all of the ingredients that ensured the group's ongoing popularity: tuneful melody, smooth harmony vocals, and a likable, accessible sound.
His allusion therefore ironically also includes both his wife and Gatsby. 4. How does Daisy feel about Gatsby’s parties? How does her reaction illustrate the differences between East and West Egg? Daisy likes Gatsby’s parties and finds them interesting and ostentatious.
Despite still failing to strive for his American Dream in an unobtainable, altruistic way, Gatsby did succeed in freeing himself from the prison of wealth he created around himself in hopes of joining those men and women already trapped in the false security and power of wealth. Afterall, Nick knew that there was something special about Gatsby from the start; one of the first things he said about him was, “Gatsby was the single most hopeful person I have ever met,” (Luhrmann). Luhrmann expertly illustrates this aspect of Gatsby for the viewer, showing his unfathomable depth for the pursuable aspects of life. Talking to Nick, Gatsby points passionately up to the stars and says, “My life has got to be like this. It’s got to keep going up,” (Luhrmann).
What the old aristocracy possesses in taste, however, it seems to lack in heart. All of this is demonstrated through the film how Gatsby throws large extravagant parties that are comparable to parties we have currently (Show clips of Gatsby’s parites ). Whereas how Jordan Baker and Daisy dress elegantly in white dresses, yet the East Eggers prove themselves careless, inconsiderate bullies who are so used to money’s ability to ease their minds that they never worry about hurting others. The only debatable person who lacks explicit flaws such as these is Nick who is the Narrative figure of the film and has fallen into a depression due to the events of the movie. This clear separation of how people are hollow depending on where they live within the story greatly differs from the Hunger Games.
I have seen too many great movies, so I don’t really have a favorite. If I had to choose a movie series it would be “The Mummy” and “The Matrix”. Both these movies have the best graphics that I have seen in movies, the Matrix more than The Mummy. Also, I like how the story is too long and complicated for just one sitting, so they had to break the movie up into a series. Both movies have great actors and actress, like in The Matrix the cast consisted Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne.
There is a word that perfectly describes Gatsby: decadent. The Merriam-Webster defines decadence as “behavior that shows low morals and a great love of pleasure, money, fame, etc.” Gatsby was not born into wealth, unlike Tom and Daisy; he had to work for it. This pursuit of money is what causes Gatsby to become immoral, not materialism itself. At an early, impressionable age of Gatsby’s life, Gatsby meets millionaire Dan Cody. Cody takes Gatsby in as his assistant, where Gatsby gets a taste and liking of the rich life.
This suggests that Gatsby was in fact involved in illegal activities as he never denied these accusations made by Tom Buchanan. The main reason Gatsby performed these illegal activities was so he could become rich and successful and impress Daisy. Moreover, the author is asserting that even with all the hard work and perseverance, one may not be able to achieve the Dream as Gatsby was a very honest man who was a fisher and eventually met Dan Cody and started to work with him, but he never really gained "exposure". When Dan Cody died, all of his inheritance money went to his wife even though Gatsby was promised a sum total of $25,000. He was so obsessed with wealth and luxury that he did, in
