Finally, I thought the acting was amazing, especially by Brigitte Helm. I do not know how any other actress could have portrayed Maria and the machine Maria any better. I liked the dramatic styles of the actors because it added to the drama of the plot. This movie did not have any glaring flaw and the attention to detail from the director, Fritz Lang, allowed the movie to be so great, such as how the workers who had been working walked slower than the fresh workers in the beginning of the film, as pointed out by Mordaunt Hall. Metropolis will probably always be remembered and watched for its awesome sets, memorable themes, outstanding acting, and its influence on the genre of science fiction as a
Kubrick uses the background score of the film to set the mood of the respective stories that are finally proven to be coherent with each other. The background music changes as per the narratives shown on the screen. The filmmaker has also exceled in the use of jump-cuts in this cinematic work. Since the narrative ranges over time and space beyond centuries, jump-cut was the only viable option for the auteur to portray the timeline with ease. The filmmaker succeeds in his endeavor as the film appeals right from the very inception to the very end of the narrative.
I will sit in my room and listen to music until night time. I like to listen to rap and sometimes r&b and hip hop. I like to listen to music when I’m with my friends and me and my sister will always dance to music or sing. I have a lot of memories of me and my sister dancing and singing. “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa would be the soundtrack to my life.
In this paper I will examine the treatment of the music in “Citizen Kane” and highlight all its special aspects in order to answer this proposed question: would have the greatest movie of all times been so great without its extraordinary music ? The music of Citizen Kane was

Therefore she seeks for help and guidance from her teacher Miss Hodge. When Miss Hodges agree to help her, she brings Mr. Lucitanno and Blinde Eddie.

With lines like "When you 've got friends, to wish you well, You 'll find a point when, You will exhale" this is what the movie was all about. You may go through something but as long you have friends that support you, you can always exhale. This really helped make the soundtrack what it is today. Now, we 've done a lot of talking about the soundtrack and how great it is, but we haven 't talked about the mastermind behind it all. Kenneth Brian Edmonds (Babyface) is the person we have to thank for this greatness.
overcomes it and starts to sing. This is where the editing starts to become more dramatic as it cuts in between the concert and the bar where Mooney is trying to get the radio turned up so her can publicity for her. The editing gives the illusion that Mooney may end up in a bar fight, but when the song ends James 17 all is well. The editing in this scene helps the viewer understand Lynn’s fear of rejection and that if she goes up onstage everything in her life will never be the same again.
The performances of the voice actors is nothing short of great, especially in the emotional scenes. I had no idea Kyle MacLachlan was in this! And as expected he was fantastic. I didn 't really feel like "Oh I know that voice" at all in the film and was shocked upon seeing the credits. They all did fantastic jobs at becoming their characters
This was extremely intriguing for my adolescent mind to think about and comprehend how the music playing in the background, barely even noticing that it there, can change how you feel about the act. I wanted to be a Film Score producer for great action movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, Mission Impossible, Star Wars, and Jaws. For hours upon hours on end, I sat and listened to film scores from some of the most influential movies I’ve heard about, but never actually seen, trying to determine what the scene might be about based on the music being played. I didn’t realize how hard it was to actually determine whether or not the scene was happy or sad other than being based on the major and minor chords. By now I’m approximately the age of fourteen or fifteen and I have begun exploring my ideas of how to pursue careers in being a film score composer.
After watching the new Broadway musical An American in Paris, I left the Palace Theatre feeling I shall never forget this beautiful American musical with its powerful display of storytelling through dance. Christopher Wheeldon, the director and choreographer, chose an extremely clear, stunning, and entirely balletic introduction; yet even with the limited narration, I was never lost as he carried me through Paris - a suffering city still in turmoil after emerging from the darkness of WWII German Occupation. As the giant Nazi banner victoriously

La La Land is a different type of musical than many we have seen in the past years, the director Damien Chazelle and Music writer Justin Hurwitz have created a modern Los Angeles reminiscent of 1950’s musicals. More than anything, La La Land talks about the evolution of Jazz in modern history, the story of Sebastian (Ryan Gosling). Struggling to make his mark on a city that is ever changing. Rooted in the early foundations of jazz, Gosling ends up teaming up with Keith (John Legend), where he discovers this new age of Jazz, a mash up of jazz, electronic, RnB, and funk. Gosling deals with this internal struggle as he decides if fame or his musical values are more worth sticking to.
‘The Book Thief’, a moving film lead by director Brian Percival, portrays the meaningful theme of the power of words. This theme remains relevant to the people of today’s society in an extremely relatable manner, even though the movie itself is set in Molching, Germany during the time of WWI. It is made clear right from the beginning of the film that the importance of words will be carried out throughout the film in a way the audience finds relevant to the modern day. The viewer gains first sight of this as Liesel is required to print her name on the class blackboard. The director sets the scene full of tension as Liesel steps towards the blackboard in a cowardly manner and portrays this in such a way that the viewer is able to feel the whole
Disillusioned at the moment of death, the speaker in Emily Dickinson’s poem #465, plummets from her majestic spiritual expectations into the lowly position of simply being a carcass. Distracted by the anticipation of an impending ethereal experience, the speaker fails to recognize the significance of the fly at the moment of her death. Dickinson’s preliminary placement of the fly, “I heard a Fly buzz — when I died” in the beginning sentence offers a form of foreshadowing as well as emphasizes it’s roll (1). The speaker is encompassed by the ideas of her spiritual expectations and is waiting, “between the Heaves of Storm” for a heavenly excursion (4). However, the sound of the fly, an animal devoted to consuming the dead, brings reality to the audience that the speaker is simply a carcass waiting to be devoured.
