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
I had heard of The Beatles throughout the course of my life but knew nothing about them; the only thing I was aware of was that teens still embrace them now as well as elderly folks. Out of all talented bands, The Beatles was the one that stood out to me not only because of their name, but because once I read a bit more about how they started and and their style characteristics, I was quite surprised. The fact that they were able to deliver music that “it was evident that their talents as composers and instrumentalists were expanding furiously, as they devised ever more inventive melodies and harmonies, and boosted the fullness of their arrangements” (Unterberger). Something that I had never heard before was that they were a one of a kind
“La-La Land” is a mix of a love story with a musical movie. It can easily be compared to the 1978 “Grease” movie which is also a mix of a love story and a musical movie. The main characters
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
By being versatile and creative with his music he managed to drop hit after hit and remain fresh with his art. He kept his fans on the edge of their seat in wait for new music. Due to his entertaining and charismatic vibe, he consistently made it to not only the top of the charts but also his fans hearts. What are your thoughts on James Brown as an artist and pop music icon?
The talented Beyonce’s has even used Shakespeare’s phrase “to be or not to be” in her the very beginning of her smashing 2006 hit, “Freakum Dress”. Although, when singing the phrase in her song she was not contemplating whether life should be lived or not, nevertheless using the phrase displays the importance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the longevity of his work and how it has impacted how people in future eras view Shakespeare’s writings and his everlasting legacy. Not only has Shakespeare’s soliloquy made a stamp on society and is perceived as important to modern society, the play Hamlet has been adapted into many multi-million dollars films that will be rewatched for more decades to come. The Lion King (1994), Strange Brew (1983), The Banquet (2006) and The Bad Sleep Well (1960) are a few movies that are adapted after Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The question remains: Why is Hamlet so prominent in modern day society?
and I like listening to some of the songs in the genre. So, I think because of this, it would be interesting to find out more about this genre and say some of my opinions on it. I have chosen Musicals because they are very popular and I enjoy watching and listening to the songs. I’ve never really known what makes a musical song different to just any other song so I thought it would be interesting to find
Denny Schneidemesser – Crayon Dragon Easily my favorite composition of all time, Denny Schneidemesser’s Crayon Dragon is an impressive work of adventure. Not ironically, the title is as playful as the actual piece. But that is not to say that it is not well thought out. Schneidemesser is a modern composer who focus on writing film score pieces. He likes to play around with ideas and create dramatic, adventure filled pieces on the side, and I appreciate the small details he frequently uses.
I think this is by far the best musical all of the songs in the movie are extremely catchy and all of the actors in the movie do a great job of portraying their character especially Rick Moranis who plays the main character. As I have said before they do an amazing job on the puppet work for the plant and the actual voice actor for the plant does an amazing job of making you love the character. They also did a great job of all the sets in the movie they really made it look like 1950’s/60’s New York in a poor run down neighborhood and it really adds to the whole experience of the movie. I think you should really see this movie while it is obviously not in theaters anymore it is on dvd and blu ray while I am not sure how much a normal dvd is the blu ray is 20 dollars and includes a lot of special features if you are interested in that kind of thing but i 'm sure you could find it randomly on your tv one day and just record it on your dvr
Hamilton: An American Musical and 1776 both cover identical time periods but with varying zeal. Each show has been met with positive reviews, and both contain their fair share of historical inaccuracies. Both are immensely worthy and beautiful pieces of art. Hamilton:
In the book of The Devil’s Arithmetic and in the movie by the same name, there is one central theme. The saddening theme of remembering what the past is for the Jews and what they struggled with. In the time period these historical fiction stories took place, the Holocaust was just beginning. This was a very dark time for all Jews. Today Jews still face prejudice, in almost every single country.
For hundreds of years, stories have been passed on from one person to another through the oral tradition and the visual arts. In our society today, film is the dominant form of storytelling. Films shape and inform our opinions of the world. Many people’s only source of information is from films. This can be harmful when the information is false or misguided.
Logic, the ability to create a consensus and deductive reasoning, is perhaps the most important of the three rhetorical devices. Reasoning is an essential aspect of the human domain, one that not only persuades, but also incites mutual understanding. Entertainment such as movies, use this logic to appeal to our sense of imagination and the thrill we seek in life. Tarzan is a fictional character that appears in the upcoming movie The Legend of Tarzan.
Music had been part of the human culture for years. As we know there is different type of music that come from different part of the world and they all have a unique history behind it. American music was develop in the spiritual music with one of the most known called The Negro Spiritual. A spiritual (or Negro spiritual) is a type of Christian song, which emerged in the late eighteenth century and was developed in the early nineteenth century in the United States. These black spirituals were popular adaptations of Protestant religious hymns, made by African American workers who were generally enslaved or discriminated against.
