If you go to the theater you will have a good idea of how the storyline will go but what you don’t know is how the director and producers will interpret it. The book was good and I wasn’t sure what to expect from the movie, since the filmmakers always change or omit something from the book. Of course, there were many differences between film and book, but as a whole the movie stayed true to the novel. There were several differences in the movie that I could notice, and one of them was the character traits and personalities. Starting out with Tris, one of the differences was the number of fear landscapes.
While watching Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock, I was able to notice two distinct themes throughout the film. These two themes are a quote about actions speaking louder than words and suspense. Hitchcock also had many different elements in his film to make it successful. My favorite element he used was sound with the radio in the background, street noise, and other ongoing conversations. One main theme that was shown through out the film was the quote “actions speak louder than words”.
You would think it’s about a huge monster destroying everything, but really it’s about captivity which was great thriller that makes me want to see it again, but others would be disappointed in it. It felt rushed and came very fast. It was one of those movies that had me like “woe” which was fine and it worked for me, but also it made me think about the sounds and clues the characters gave out. This could’ve been a first viewing problem like you’re watching the movie the first time and you don’t know what to expect and you what’s the story is building to and you got to process it and really think about it, but led me into appreciating it more. I love the fact that you don’t know anything, but it creates this expectation in you that could lead you into not liking it, because you create these crazy expectations in your head, because you really don’t know what to expect from this film.
When I was asked to write about an instance of intercultural communication in a movie, Arrival was not the first thing that came to mind. However, once I had thought about it, I could not get it out of my head, and I knew I had to write about it. The reason behind my determination was that though the parties involved in the conflict are unusual—humans versus extraterrestrial beings—, Arrival still addresses very important issues that could arise during any intercultural communication. This paper will look at the reasons behind this conflict, namely our fear of the unknown, and our tendency to rely on stereotypes and to reflect our negative traits onto the other side. While doing so, it will also briefly touch upon the communicational issues within the human community, caused by the different frameworks through which they look
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. I chose to analyze the courthouse scene in which Deputy Danforth asks Elizabeth whether or not John Proctor committed the crime of adultery.
It is often believed that pictures speak louder than words. However, when comparing a book to a movie, this quote is totally not applicable. The purpose of creating a movie from a book is mainly to bring the characters to life and make the story more relatable. Fantasies, especially, are unrealistic and hence a movie makes the fantasy come to life. The Princess Bride was originally a book which was then filmed as a movie to recreate the story.
Whether through planning, excavating, or putting the pieces together, time is a very critical part of the process. Even when archaeologists have a good idea of where to look for something, like Indiana Jones did in the movie, it is going to take them a very long time to actually uncover the archaeological site and apply their findings to the archaeological context. In the movie everything was already uncovered and waiting to be found, but in real life things are not so easily to uncover. Obviously a movie only has so long to tell a story, so the plot line will have to move fast. However, the pace that this movie moves at would leave audience members to believe that archaeology is a faster paced process than it really is.
The movie as a whole was intriguing however through my view I saw the seeds of ideas that I could incorporate into my own writing. These ideas are far more significant than the aspect of enjoying the movie due to the opening more paths as to where any novel I write could lead to different outcomes for the protagonist or antagonist. The ideas from Pan’s Labyrinth are the spices to the novels that I am yet to
The special effects of a movie can be an important aspect to completing the film but it is important to make sure they are integrated properly into a film and that the effects are credible to the audience. “The real measure of an effects success has become how well the effect is integrated into the storyline of the film.” (Petrie & Boggs, 2012) Beetlejuice is a film about two recently dead ghost who employ the services of Beetlejuice in order to get rid of the family who have taken over their home. Special effects play a large role in creating this film. There are many special effects in the film Beetlejuice. They include stop motion, prosthetic makeup, blue screen and puppetry.
Dwayne Johnson, how was it like playing the character of Maui in the movie Moana? Well, I got to say there was some difficulties voicing Maui but other than that it was pretty good. Why were the difficulties that occurred when voicing Maui? The difficulties were picking the right emotion to what Maui says in the movie. Another was that when different scenes are played I would mess my lines up and we 'd start all over again from the beginning.
“Creating Reel Change,” by Donovan Jacobs is article about different film directors who produce movies that focus on issues that affect many people. Jacobs states that a variety of untraditional film and documentary makers seek to do more than portray positive action on the screen. These companies and artists want to motivate their audiences to get better informed on their issues, volunteer to help the subjects of the movie or program, and even advocate for legislation that offers protection to victims and tries to right the wrongs portrayed. For an example, some companies’ focus on global issues others focuses on getting a motivational message across. I’ve watched several movies and documentaries, and one, in particular, has certainly made
He gives a deeper meaning to his stories with his use of creative costuming, intriguing lighting, interesting editing, and camera angles.Without them , Burton’s stories would not be as appealing to people. Body#1 Tim Burton’s style in costuming is expressed in a unique and divergent way. For example, In Tim Burton’s film, “Edward Scissorhands”, the costuming was a little oddball and they were dressed as stereotypes. The characters in this movie were dressed in amusing clothing. On the other hand in his movie, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, the characters were a little bit more routined and put together.
Both issues are intertwined because the media greatly influences the populous’ opinion on current events. This leads to Olly’s moral dilemma of how accurate he needs to be when representing Geronimo. He wants people to want to watch his movie, so he feels the need to bend the perception of Geronimo to make his movie more interesting. Is this breaking a moral code to be honest with history? Not only does the movie leave the audience pondering that question, but it leads viewers to question what other parts of history have been bent to make more interesting?
Unlike Piotr Szczypa 's article which encounters the specific approaches within the film to achieve certain impact on the audience; Christoph Classen weighs more on discussing the truths in Schindler 's List and researches for the explanations behind the scenes. In this article, the author spends wide coverage to argue the reasons why Schindler 's List cannot be fully considered as presenting the historical truth, even though Spielberg had tried his utter best to restore the environments and only reflect the evidence he got. In order to answer that problem, the article takes further steps into examine the “aesthetic, political, cognitive” dimensions of displaying a historical event which are inspiring for me to understand more about the existence of conflicts between the contemporary political parties to face the Nazi and holocaust issue. Additionally, though Spielberg deliberately wanted this film to be based on the facts, the article addresses the how people 's memories might have different interpretations in the film, which is another possibility of misrepresenting the fact. I think the comparisons and the thinking, as the article addresses in the title, about how historical truth can be involved in history, memory and culture can provide various aspects to rethink about this film because they view the film as a demonstration of a cultural phenomenon within the society.
Genre creates both challenges and opportunities in film criticism. Because a genre has characteristics that make it that genre, we as critics, should know what to expect in a film. In other words, films in a particular genre follow a loose template for that genre and that makes it easier for a critic to critique. However, genre can also be a challenge when a film does not fit neatly in a genre box. It has been said that genre films are only entertainment because they follow the same formula over and over; however, the messages vary from genre film to genre film, which in my opinion makes film art.
