Throughout the movie, Dustin Hoffman, John Malkovich, and Kate Reid all provided an outstanding performance by ensuring that their facial expressions, body language, and emotions always shined through all the while they were creating realistic characters that were easily believable by the audience. Dustin Hoffman was the first actor that caught my attention in this movie. Although this is probably because he played the main character of the play, I found his passion in this performance to also be a sole reason as to why his acting was so intriguing. Hoffman truly put on an incredible performance in this movie, and a great deal of it had to do with his facial expressions and body language. Hoffman’s most effective scene in this film was the scene where Willy Loman got fired from his job.
I would say that Stardust is a romance and adventure story that is made in a way that captures the audience’s attention. Most love stories can bore and seem cliche, but the way that Stardust was structured made it stand out amongst the norm. The story of the film Stardust adheres to“The Hero’s Journey” and can still be considered to be a post-modern work as well. One way that supports Stardust to actually be a “Hero’s Journey” is that it uses all of the steps throughout the film. Knowing “The Hero’s Journey”, it was easy to point out the key elements while watching Stardust.
They form a beautiful friendship that leads to an unexpected kind of love. Filipino rom-com films often star hit love teams such as JaDine and KathNiel. Setting Empoy and Alessandra as a tandem in the movie was a risk worth taking because they put up a good chemistry on screen despite their disparity in looks and their previous roles. In the first few minutes of the film, the acting of the characters especially the extras
After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.
Additionally, Stephen Marche mentions that “Nothing could seem more natural to us than the rebellion of teenagers, which explains why Romeo and Juliet has fit easily into twentieth-century pop culture” (Marche). Marche is trying to tell us that one of Shakespeare’s biggest hits, Romeo and Juliet, has become popular in 20th century culture mainly because it involves adolescent rebellion. The quote supports Shakespeare in the high school curriculum because Romeo and Juliet appealed to many from the previous generation. In conclusion, the invention of the adolescent is another reason Shakespeare should remain in the high school
The movie Simon Birch is a four out of four star movie because of the well made characters and the great cinematography. It will have an emotional impact on most viewers, and will at least make the others have a good laugh. This film is a heartwarming comedy
You could say that a lot of his personality shines through in his acting, making it easy to argue that Louise Fletcher, who plays a very authoritarian role, might have had to face a greater challenge acting out her character. Therefore, perhaps, her acting should be considered better than Nicholson's. Regardless of this, both actors play their roles very well, getting the viewer immersed in the story. One
Symbolism, as used in this movie, added a large amount of depth to the movie and individual scenes. The most prominent example of this can be seen with the depiction of Ellen. Throughout the movie the costuming and makeup used by Lily Collins in her portrayal of Ellen reflects the status of Ellen’s mental and physical health. In many scenes where Ellen creates strong relationships, she is dressed in bright clothes and has makeup that brings out her features making her look more attractive. Contrary though, in scenes where Ellen takes a step back her clothes become drab and layered.
We enjoyed watching it though it made us shed into tears. Overall, Awakenings is an entertaining, yet poignant film that is eloquently laced with poetry and a beautiful score by Randy Newman. This is easily the most powerful tearjerker that I 've ever seen, thanks in large part to the brilliant performances by Williams and De Niro. But to be fair, the whole cast was excellent, and they were helped by a script that was nearly perfect. For me, the scenes with Miller proved to be the most emotional, but really, the whole film was heartwarming or heartbreaking on some level.
Every scene shows an incredible amount of finesse and detail, and really makes the movie absolutely touching to see. Although it revolves around a more depressing issue, it maintains its comedic value and shows that it will be able to stand the test of time as an absolutely inspiring
Consequently, “Pretty in Pink” was a decent film that did have its hilarious moments and upsetting moments. “Pretty in Pink” is a film that is not my favorite genres, however the acting that was done in the film was very enjoyable to watch and caused for the film to grow on me and become one of my favorite movies. This film is a must see and will be a memorable movie to watch and can be relatable to anyone in high school and the older generations’ high school
Nova wants to be a detective someday, which sort of fits perfectly with the situation she is thrown into. She is smart, fierce, vulnerable, and thick skinned all at the same time. I actually really liked her even though I had a hard time getting into her head at first. When you have such a developed character, like Nova, the little things that would normally bother me had absolutely no effect. Sure, I still got annoyed with her sometimes, but it no was nowhere near the scale of making me want to quit the book like some others have before There were so many great characters all packed into this one story, I think Kelly deserves some serious acknowledgement for that
It’s not always easy to talk to new people or to make new friends. The Perks of Being a Wallflower helps point out that there is nothing wrong with you if you are that kind of person. This movie also touches on things like self-harm, sex, love, friends, losing people, and self-acceptance. I can relate to almost all of these things now and during my teenage years. All of these things are the things that help you find yourself who you are.
