If you don’t like superheroes (The most popular film genre), ideas taken from Star Wars and Indiana Jones (some of the most memorable and most profitable film series of all time), and Marvel (one of the most profitable companies in the world) then I’m going to have to tell you otherwise. I have to convince you. Well, let’s start that. I’ve already stated twice now that this is a “Marvel Movie”. Marvel Studios is awesome!
The dream scene was way more vivid in person then when I read it. The lighting, costumes, and music definitely set a tone that is extremely different from the rest of the play. It is also a very important scene that makes up the tittle. The description of her brown body and the red water are what were put together to make the tittle In Red and Brown Water. The scenery during the
Science fiction has become increasingly popular over the past few years as new innovative technology has made it possible for films to become more realistic. Avatar, being one of the highest ranked sci-fi films to be made, is a clear example of how the film industry is on a fast moving track towards a new era of science fiction storytelling. James Cameron’s Avatar exercised all new forms of cinematographic tools in order to bring one’s imagination to real life. The first step after writing the script was to cast actors to each specific role. Avatar had taken a different approach as many characters would only be used for their voice and not their looks, because the film had two perspectives.
Living in the past was a huge mistake that the character has seemed in encounter, in their head they always thought of what it could have been and what it would have been, which brought many problems on the way. Gatsby as well as Daisy, focused on the idea of their “true” love that the characters decided to push everything to a side creating bigger conflicts. Woody Allen’s film “Midnight in Paris” had many similarities to the novel “The Great Gatsby” when it came to the music and character. The characters that stood out the most in the film were Gil and Adriana, which in many ways resembled two characters from the novel. Gil in the film was engaged to his fiancé Inez but things did not seem to turn out as planned.
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. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
Your use of descriptive words helps paint a vivid picture in my mind and helps making the story captivating to read. For example your description of the women the main character thought he was with the night before, and your use of the word “gangly” to describe Jesus Villarreal’s height. What could be worked on could be the transitioning from paragraph to paragraph, from thought to action. On some occasions the story is a bit jumpy. Jumping from one scenario to the next without a proper transition.
This combination of sci-fi and western may seem somewhat unusual, but it is flawlessly executed in “Firefly”. The show takes some of the best elements from both genres and combines them into something genuinely entertaining. The setting along with the plot line of “Firefly” were astonishing and imaginative. It is set on a spaceship in the year 2517, shortly after a civil war wherein the outlying worlds fought for their independence from the core worlds. The overall story in addition to the individual plot of each episode was excellent and at no time became tiresome or dull.
Rear Window The film masterpiece “Rear Window” is directed by Alfred Hitchcock and is known for its unique ability to connect to the hearts of many. The movie intrigues the audience from the opening scene to the dramatic amusement, Hitchcock’s movie is near impossible to predict and is composed of multiple plot twists and surprises. Despite being a harsh movie critic, I truly appreciated every single detail that is put forth by the Director. Unsurprisingly, Hitchcock is known for countless other amazing films such as, “Psycho”, “Vertigo”, and “North by Northwest”. However, what separates “Rear Window” from Hitchcock’s other films is its unique use of camera angles to show every suspenseful moment within the film.
If one is actually following the story line intently you inadvertently pay more attention to the details of the film. Pacific Rim captures the imagination with its impeccable graphics and never ending action scenes that keep you entertained throughout the films entirety. There have been many films released in the past several years and that are still being released today that involve battles between man-made machines and people against giant creatures of earth and also alien creatures such as, Cowboys and Aliens (2011), The Avengers (2012), Avatar (2009), Godzilla (2014), and many more. While these films are similar to Pacific Rim in areas, this Guillermo Del Toro film has exceeded the expectations for a Sci-Fi film
Mythology is a great way of exploring what may have been or might still be an influence to our modern life. The film Thor reveals some character very much similar to the readings assigned. However, the movie itself have opened up a few questions that I myself find very interesting. What if somewhere out there exists a portals that could open up the world of the gods to our own. I have never viewed the film prior to this class and I have chosen to do so due to its unending trails of “what if’s” introduced in such an exciting manner.
