Kishan Patel Art 2901 Exam 1 Essay 1 (100 points) Early films by Edison and Lumiere involved very simple cinematography, little to no editing and simple realist mise en scene. However, Georges Melies, a theater proprietor and an amateur magician, laid foundation for the new generation films. In A Voyage to the Moon, he becomes first person to introduce a sci-fi film. In this paper I hypothesize that A Voyage to the Moon was most innovative in cinematography and editing. Although mise en-scene was the main focus of the film, I hypothesize that mise en scene wasn’t as innovative as the other two.
The documents of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission that had landed the first humans to the moon have appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos and are effective in achieving its purpose. These documents were composed by different sources appealing to the audience and its use of ethos, logos, and pathos and how they each comply to make the documents potent to its purpose. Document 2 is a speech written for president Richard Nixon in case if there was a moon disaster. This speech was addressed to US citizens to notify them that the astronauts unfortunately could not make it back. Nixon appeals to pathos by using a strong sense of adjectives to describe their hard work they have done throughout this journey.
Also the movie leaves out some huge characters like Theo Theodorakis, Flora Baumbach, and Madame Sun Lin Hoo(who was the thief) and all of them have to do with emotion. In the movie Otis Amber is the inventor but in the book it is Mr. Hoo. Otis is also the personal investigator but in the movie there is no personal investigator. Even though the plots are mostly the same it is interesting why so many details were left out of the
When the aircrafts are shown flying the engine case was not moving along with the propellor which shows that they were radial engines. Rotary engines were used in WW1 because of the fact that they were air cooled which made them lighten and more efficient as they didn’t need any other sources of cooling besides air (Aircraft Engines). The last inaccuracy with the fighter planes in Flyboys was the movie failing to show how often new aircrafts were introduced. In WW1 one side would come out with a new plane which would give them an advantage for a short time and within a few months the other side would also give them an advantage and it tended to go back and forth throughout the war (C N
One out of the four essences that build up the movie and the book. However, Walter seems to have much more presence and change in the movie, rather than the book. In particular, Walter seems to have much more aggression, as he almost beats George up in the movie. However, George is left untouched inside the pages of the book. Additionally, we see Walter’s experience in the Green Hat in several scenes.
He is trying to reach to us, and explain his thought. The book gives you smaller words (gold) that has a bigger meaning to it or multiple definitions, as well as the Hinton giving us more plot to the book than the movie, an example for that would be that the movie missed the whole first chapter of the book. The whole idea of “Nothing gold can stay” was just overall more interesting than in the movie. It had a bigger message. Both the poems were very emotional and beautiful.
Two of the ideologies that Nichols talks about in his book are dominant and alternative ideology. He says that the dominant ideology is the system that has the power and most people agree with (289). On the same page, he says an alternative ideology is the one that, “resist, challenges, or subverts the dominant ideology.” This is the straightforward set of ideologies that film used; it placed the aliens as the dominate ideology and the humans that fought against them as the alternative ideology. Like most action films, They Live uses these two ideologies to make clear protagonist and antagonist; this kind of setup makes it so the viewer is more concerned about who's shooting whom rather than why they are shooting at each other. Only illustrating these two ideologies turns of the viewer’s mind so they can better enjoy all of the random and unnecessary violence that is
One of these many elements, is when adaptations remove unnecessary or extra characters (Stam 71). Iran the wife of Deckard was unnecessary to include the film, as the film focused its limited time on immersing the audience and on posing androids as human. Additionally, films also change novelistic events, for ideological reasons, to utilize a skilled actor, to make it more contemporary, or for aesthetic purposes, etc. (Stam 72-73). Arguably, the vast difference of how the android Roy was killed in the film versus the book, allowed the audience much more insight on how valuable life is to androids.
When dividing the book and movie of Enders Game into sections, we can clearly see that the movie was far more better than the book, at least visually. Not only did the movie show us greater details than the book, it also gave us an idea of what the characters and settings looked like. Some scenes that prove that the movie is richer in quality than the book; is the fight with the buggers at the beginning, the battle room scene with salamander and leopard army, and when Ender goes on the Bugger 's planet to talk to the queen. Let 's begin from the movie with the scene of the bugger 's invasion. At the beginning of the movie, we see the Formics ' (buggers) attacking Earth.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Comparison Essay It is virtually a maxim that a character’s inner thoughts are more enhanced in books than in movies or films.
