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.

Despite the fact that the movie was made famous based on inaccuracy of the actual true story, it still presents wonderful cinematography.
Creating a suspenseful movie without it becoming boring, or creating a funny movie that’s not full of cheap jokes are both feats in their own right but the Coen brothers were able to combine the two into there one with their knockout debut Blood Simple. Blood Simples editing creates a suspenseful neo noir film that is full of dramatic irony. The audience knows going on behind the scenes but the characters don 't and they keep making the worst choices. The first edit I will look at in the film is when Marty breaks into Rays house and grabs hold of Abby. The editing here is reminiscent of Russian montage editing and creates a panicked feeling in the audience.

In The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrman has reinvigorated the 1925 classic novel by introducing many modern filming technology such as lighting and colour; sound and music and editing. While Joe Wright has attempted to do the complete opposite by taking the modern novel, Atonement ,and attempting to recreate the harsh reality of the past by using the same filmic techniques as Baz Luhrman. However Joe Wright is more successful in recreating the past and showing the harsh realities of the era in Atonement. The lighting in The Great Gatsby tends to be theatrical and illuminates the characters by bringing the focus on them and not on the background. An example of this would be when we are introduced to daisy for the first time, she is the focus of attention and is given almost a dreamlike quality by using soft lighting.

Kill Bill is a fantastic, two part, martial arts movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. This movie has a character named Beatrix Kiddo who clearly follows many stages of the hero journey throughout the movie. One might not even consider her charater to be a hero but she follows the outline that Joseph Campbell created. Even though she has villainous traits, she is someone who I would consider to be more more of a hero. She shows her heroic traits in some of the stages in her journey.
Stephen Kings gave each of them a different purpose. If not, then all the movies would have basically had the same story line. You have a girl that can move things with her mind, a rabbit dog, and a car that is alive. None of those are the same, but they all had the same mission, and that’s to kill. It is amazing to know that even though we know that a horror movie is going to involve a killer, just like the rest of them, we still want to watch.
Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho redirected the entire horror genre, and in doing so dismantled the prudent 1950’s societal barriers of cinema. Although unseen for its potential by the large studios of the time, Psycho became one of the crowning achievements of film history. While based partially on a true story of murder and psychosis from Wisconsin, the widespread viewing of this tale made way for a new era of film and ushered in a new audience of movie goers. The use of violence, sexual explicitness, dramatic twists, sound, and cinematography throughout this film gave Hitchcock his reputable name and title as master of suspense. In 2018, reviews of films often are headlined with “the book was better.” But, in 1960 there was no such thing
Film Comparisons: Same cinematography, Matured Purposes As you can see, once the director’s general objectives have been put side by side, it becomes clear that there is a relationship. The most apparent connection would obviously be the books because the plot lines are continuous and intertwine. However, it seems that their influence may artistically be overlooked and is interesting to see how the same cinematic element can be used for opposing purposes. The Prisoner of Azkaban vs. The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 As mentioned before, the main link between the third and seventh film is the focus on environment.
