Burton uses sound in his movies to do exactly that. In his movies, he uses non-diegetic sound to help build suspense and to entertain the viewer. In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Burton builds suspense by using very intense music that only the viewer can hear as Jake goes to open a door, thus making the viewer sit on the edge of their seat waiting for the next couple of seconds to define the fate of the character. In Big Fish, Burton uses a dark and menacing musical tone while Edward is fighting with the big fish for his wedding ring back; then, right when he released the fish, the music changed to a mystical and happy tone to express Edward’s triumph and to add to the beauty of that scene. In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie.
In the movie trailer, The Blind Side, there are multiple scenes involving some of the main characters where lessons are taught and realizations are made. Many of these scenes contain imagery that would make viewers want to tear up due to how thought out these very simple, yet powerful scenes are. For instance, near the middle of the film trailer, there is a scene that consist of Leigh Anne Tuohy, the mom of the family, showing Michael his new bedroom at their house. Leigh Anne tells Michael that he now has a bedroom of his own and Michael responds by saying that he has never had one. And Leigh Anne asks, “What a room to yourself?”

It’s effective because it scares the two of them and forces them to stay on one side of the house and make them move out. For instance “the sound came through muted and indistinct, a chair being knocked over onto the carpet or the muffled buzzing of a conversation”(p.39). This proves that the house being possessed by a spirit and scaring the people that are living and staying in the house. On the contrary, the chair could’ve fell because of
In the movie Inside Out everything essentially takes place inside the mind of an eleven year old girl, Riley. Riley is guided by her emotions of joy, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust. These five core human emotions attempt to advise and navigate her through her everyday life. The emotions and Riley display many nonverbal cues throughout the movie which portray how they are feeling. Watching this movie helped me learn how effective the communication between the characters is, what advice I would give to Riley if I were put in a similar situation, and how this advice is rooted in nonverbal communication.
Kurzel depicts the witches to be significantly different than the play version, from their physical depiction to their abilities, along with the different apparitions seen by Macbeth. The first encounter with the witches is during a battle where Macbeth can be very vulnerable. That way they really take control of Macbeth, causing a disturbance within Macbeth. During the first battle scenes Macbeth is stopped with the sight of four witches in the distance staring him down as he stares back, with war and chaos all around him. These figures in the distance that Macbeth sees at the start of the film is a kind of foreshadowing that Macbeth is not alright.
There had been a contrast of lighting which expressed her various emotions for instance it came from white representing innocence to red. Which built climax especially with the higher levels in the end from Lorna who stood up as she became angry.

She shows different emotions of Miss Havisham, therefore contrasting with other performances that only show a deathly serious character. Thus it is possible for the spectator to understand the complexity of her character, and not seen her only as a mad evil ‘creature’. The scene with little Estella at two coming to Satis House emphasises even more that aspect in Miss Havisham, and plays a key role in this film. Gillian Anderson’s performance can be considered particularly original because she gives Miss Havisham a child-like aspect, with a little girl’s voice. This is perhaps at first unlike what one would imagine, but quickly becomes believable, specially because she was left by Compeyson at a quite young age and therefore she maintained her childish personality, also seen in her will to punish people so she is not the only person suffering.
One thing that I think is really fascinating is that it’s not only about magic, it 's about persevering when life presents you with a series of obstacles.

Terry Tempest Williams constructs a convincing argument for why the US government should be honest with its citizens. She stresses the importance of this “transparency” in the government with particular reference to the deadly repercussions of nuclear testing. The US government conducted these nuclear tests because the United States wanted to remain superior in nuclear weaponry around the globe. After World War II ended, the Cold War began, and the United States needed to defend itself and its citizens from the threat of communism from the Soviet Union. “The Korean War was raging.
Nick Tingle’s article discusses David Bartholomae’s theory on Inventing the University's, where he takes Bartholomae’s article and discusses beyond, in explaining how class conflicts create tension within writing. He brings forward his values, views, and personal experiences from both sides of the working class and middle class debate. Tingle discusses and agree’s with Basil Bernstein that middle class and working class children learn different perceptual activity and uses the example that speech “becomes an object of special perceptual activity”(225). To discuss this, Tingle agrees that speech and language is evidently different from children in the working class home compared to the middle class families. In the middle class family, the role
