What I liked in this movie is the only one that Dr. Sayer did not give up Leonard Lowe from his condition. Even if the mother says Leonard is losing but Dr. Sayer saw the spirit of fighting. This is the great discovery in the opening scenes of "Awakenings," preparing the way for sequences of enormous joy and heartbreak, as the patients are "awakened" to a personal freedom they had lost all hope of ever again experiencing. And I liked about Dr. Sayer on giving hope to the patients, giving his smiles and the courage of his ability. And the other hand I liked about Leonard who did not give up on his condition, Yes he saw the changes but he decided to live and start over
The song that is played during this is called “Everyday”. This piece of music does a perfectly good job at giving off the exact emotions that the audience would want to feel. It helps give a sense of nostalgia and happiness because Edward gets to go find the love of his life. Although this film does a fine job at using the music to make the audience have a stronger understanding of the mood in the scene; there is always some bad with the good. The downside of having a lot of great music is that there may even be too much of it.
Robert De Niro acting was really believable from being paralyzed and ticks of his body to recovery. His genuine smile and outlook about life made the audience emphatize to his situation. He deftly handles all the emotional and physical challenges of his role. His most emotionally eloquent playing inarticulate characters, and though his performance as Leonard starts out a little too cute, it grows more daring as the movie progresses. One of the central weaknesses of Awakenings is that it fails to dramatize the fact that Leonard, unlike some of the other
Juror three was stubborn and didn’t consider the thoughts of other or the facts that others had brought up. The square is outlined by a bright red because most of the movie juror three is an angry, hot tempered man. On the inside of the square, it fades from a dark blue to a very light blue. As seen in figure one the square fades on the inside, the darker blue shows the power that juror three thought he had and as it fades to the lighter blue it represents the sorrow that he has for losing connection with his son. All through the movie juror three was stubborn and his temper was put to the test when asked “Are you his executioner,” he responded with “I am one of them” (12 Angry Men).
I feel the movie was portrayed well, and I like some of the people the Lee cited. The movie was also able to show Lee and Leslie’s struggle in a credible way, and it managed to show how both sides felt too. I could feel and see why Leslie changed and that she truly wanted to share her discovery with her husband. It was also an overall good movie, which I would definitely recommend; I for sure wouldn’t mind watching it again. On a final note, the movie precisely shows the transition from skepticism to faith of an everyday man and his
Comparing Two Dumb Comedies I love the movie genre that involves me to laugh and brings me happiness, so I will be comparing the film “Step Brothers” with the movie “Dumb and Dumber”. I chose these two movies because they are some of my favorite movies of all time; also the genre, comedy, is my favorite to watch. These movies interest me because they make some of funniest jokes with the funniest actors. These two actors, Will Ferrell and Jim Carrey, have been some of my favorite actors since I was a child. I could watch these movies over and over again and wouldn’t get tired of seeing it.
Straight from the get-go the movie was able to captivate my attention by submerging me into the life of Jeanette Walls and her unordinary family. The lineup of actors who portrayed these characters did a superb job because of the way they were able to interact with each other and their surroundings, also the background characters were also a reason as to why this film was enjoyable. Even if there are some differences between the movie and the book, the overall messages are not lost through director Destin Cretton’s adaptation of the memoir. In the past, I have been someone who more than likely would always prefer the book over the movie due to the fact that books always gave more detail to character’s motives and descriptions of scenes. Also with the books there always seemed
Allen utilizes the city as a natural and a staged set in various ways, inspired by the maverick directors of past Italian cinemas. New York Times columnist Dave Itzkoff interviewed Allen in 2012, inquiring about those filmmakers that had so greatly influenced Allen's Italian pieces. One such movie was the The Bicycle Thief, directed by Vittorio De Sica in 1948. The simplicity of the plot, which involves a man's stolen bicycle and a journey to retrieve it with his son, examines the depth of the relationship between the father and son in the process. It left an effortless impression on its audience, and, Allen adds, “You didn't have to think about anything; you just watched the characters and their predicament.” De Sica likewise directed Shoeshine, another one of Allen's muses in Italian movies.
He lost brothers and sisters as well as close friends and fellow actors to the disease”(Alchin). This quote shows how upper class citizen had very little advantage over the plague just like everybody else. The Bubonic Plague had a grip on the Elizabethan time period and even though the upper class had very little advantage to the plague, it was the lower classes huge disadvantage. “Only the wealthy would receive the ministrations of an Elizabethan Physician”(Alchin). The lower class didn't have simple access to seeing a “physician”.
