The evolution of the director Baz Lurhmann Andrew Venter Topic two: “Lurhmann’s films are not so much adaptations as re-imaginings” Baz Lurhmann is a very distinctive director who is both loved and hated for his bold cinematic techniques. These techniques allow Lurhmann to recreate famous titles such as Romeo and Juliet in a way that very few people could have ever imagined. From Lurhmann’s first film Strictly Ballroom these techniques were very prevalent and instead of out growing these brash techniques he actually evolved and developed his techniques. And thus resulted, resulting in the creations of very successful films. In this essay I will be discussing how Lurhmann has evolved these cinematic techniques beginning in Strictly Ballroom, continuing in Romeo and Juliet and finally in The Great Gatsby.
8. The Truman Show - The Truman Show is one of the finest films of the 1990s. Starring Jim Carrey in one of his most memorable roles, the film introduces us to Truman Burbank, a well-meaning family man who has no idea his entire life is being manipulated by television producers and broadcast to millions of homes throughout America. The public is obsessed with Burbank’s life, with some watching the show all day, every day so as not to miss a minute of his eccentric antics. The Truman Show was released in 1998, when reality television was still in its infancy.
The scenario is based on heroes versus their old enemies every time, and you can easily find who will be a winner. He believes that the movie will definitely become more than just a battle if the heroes are going to attack and collapse human life, so he has deleted some scenes that the audience may say “That is why the Avengers are needed (Whedon & Robert, 2012).” As mentioned above, the team members come from each different series, thus the correlation diagram of characters’ relations is very complicated and extremely huge. Though it is complex, the story is still wonderfully very easy to understand. Consequently, we can enjoy this huge story with no stress of struggling. What is more interesting attraction of this story is that all stories of their every each movies are connected deeply.

He drags you in as if a TV show left a cliff hanger after ever episode. He knows exactly what happened to Michael so well, and he times it all so well into one story. A great piece from the book that shows how descriptive and emotional he can be is when he explained the fight between Michael and his teammate. “Force equals mass times acceleration, as Hugh Freeze said, and when Michael’s mass comes at you at Michael speed, it’s just an incredible force.” (Lewis 289). Another great but very emotional moment in this novel was chapter eleven, “Freak of Nurture”.
Creed is a spin-off from the ever popular Rocky series. The movie was an underdog trying to punch its way to greatness and would always have the shadow of the great legacy. Creed opened in cinemas 40 years to the day after Rocky released in theatres and gave us the greatest underdog movie of all time. The movie lives up to its rich legacy of its predecessors as it ploughs its own path to greatness. Do not get blindsided by the name, the latest entrant in the franchise is for all intents and purposes, Rocky VII.
Without hope, nothing can be accomplished. The nuclear winter will be very cold and harsh, in order to survive, one will need to prepare and plan very carefully for the coming disaster. Winter can be cold, but cold is not even close to what these men were experiencing. They experienced “expansive blizzards [that] paraded for days over the vast opening, swirling and settling and thickening” (Van Tilburg Clark, 1914, p. 178). In the article “How to Survive a Nuclear Winter” it states that they “really have no idea how cold it could get during a nuclear winter” (Roberts, 2007, para.
By analyzing the traits that Beowulf shows, we can see what kind of person the Anglo-Saxons considered to be a hero. Beowulf is a very heroic character, with few flaws that are revealed until the end of the story. He is exceedingly strong, and this is shown in many ways. He possessed the raw strength needed to rip Grendel’s arm off barehanded. Grendel was a powerful monster capable of killing dozens of men in a single night and known as a horrible creature, yet its strength completely failed when faced with Beowulf.
Though the themes waver a bit and employ the noble savage stereotype to its full effect, The Lost City of Z beautifully surveys the spirit of adventure and obsession that consumes each and every one of us – in one way or another. Set at the turn of the 20th century, Z begins in the classic doldrums of the Hero’s Journey, when our hero is still a nobody. Despite his excellent soldiery, Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) “has chosen his ancestors poorly”. He is passed up for every promotion, and his professional prospects are bleak. Then the
However, these films had to back off from the race as distributors and exhibitors were clear about their preferred choice -- Kaashmora and Kodi. The film is a winner already in the eyes of the trade experts, who exactly understand the pulse of mass audience and what their expectations from a Tamil film on a big festival like Diwali. Actor Karthi Coming from a celebrity family, Karthi easily landed his first film. However, since his big screen debut, he has never failed to amuse Tamil audience. Although most of his films are formulaic, Karthi as an actor has the ability to make them interesting with his performance.
