Most teenagers complain about not having enough freedom. To be able to sit and eat ice cream out of the box at ten in the morning for breakfast or blast their favorite music as loud as possible.

These three convicts manage to stay one step ahead of the law while finding themselves in all sorts of trouble. It was nominated for 35 other awards, one of which was for best screenwriting.

The artistic choices made in the production of cinema have a great impact on the way the audience will perceive certain aspects of the performance. One director may choose to highlight a certain scene, while another director may push it aside as trivial. A majority of the symbolism behind theatre lends itself to open interpretation, but some underlying messages have a widely accepted truth. In Nicholas Hytner’s 1996 interpretation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, lighting and camera angles help accentuate the importance of particular moments throughout the film.

The uncanny valley concept was also discussed in 2004 in the CGI filed during the box office battle royal between two blockbuster films, Warner Brothers’ The Polar express and the Pixar’s The Incredibles. The uncomfortable feelings about the more accurate yet eerie characters in the Polar Express and the emotional warmth felt for Pixar’ stylized plastic family was subject for much critical debates because their releases coincided. The characters of The Incredible film looks like human but they cannot access a reality behind the traditional cartoon film character form. Cringing, embarrassment, exaggeration, pre-emotion are the basic principles of animation use to provide exercising joy of traditional animation between the audience and the film.
Introduction When I was asked to do a movie review of the film entitled Antwone Fisher I was hesitant as to what to write. However, as I watched the movie there was a flood of emotions and thoughts that entered my mind.

The Revenant is a novel by Michael Punke originally published in 2002. Punke’s story is one of history, and it has been previously adapted into a movie in 1971 titled, Man in the Wilderness. All media and book did not stick to the original historical figure of Hugh Glass. Most recent adaptation in 2015 by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Despite the fact that the movie was made famous based on inaccuracy of the actual true story, it still presents wonderful cinematography. There are many strays from the true story of Glass and the factious character in Punke’s novel. To start with, the setting of the true story was not of mountainous landscapes, it was mostly flat terrain. The events occur in the summertime, but the movie depicts them in winter. Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre.
The Revenant is a splendid and inspiring story that does not give a minute to withdraw eyes while the film is playing. This movie presents drastically new meaning to man-versus-nature drama, to a greater extent, because of the brilliant acting performance of Leonardo DiCaprio. The Revenant was directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu who, after the majestic success of Birdman in 2014 found an inspiration in the less civilized area, specifically, North America of the 1820s. The shooting took place in rough, freezing conditions and, what is more, most productions shoot for twelve hours a day minimum. Iñárritu and director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki were forced to shoot in a more fractured manner due to the creative choices made, notably shooting
