Doe Zantamata, an American author, once said, “Good friends help you find the most important things when you have lost them...your smile, your hope, and your courage.” In Frank Darabont’s film The Shawshank Redemption, hope and friendship are a large part of the characters’ lives, as they are inmates in the Shawshank prison. Andy is a newcomer and intrigues Red, an inmate who has been in the prison for a long time. Although Red is not sure what to think of him at first, they soon become good friends. Someone’s identity not only shapes that individual, but also the friendships one makes. Andy and Red’s contradicting identities draw them towards each other and transform their lives forever through their unique friendship.
Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
But let’s compare and contrast Norbit and Big Momma’s House to see which would be the best. When watching movies audiences look for the setting, main characters, and the message or lesson the movie gives. Always the first aspect audiences notice is the setting of the movie. The movie Norbit is set up at the beginning of the comedy in a quiet town run by the three brothers of Norbit’s wife. I think the director set this movie in a small town setting to show how loud and repulsive Norbit’s wife is.
Hughes wants the viewers to feel what his characters are feeling and go back to a time in their life when they went through the same experience his characters are going through in his movie. From staying home from school, to rebelling in class and sitting through detention talking about not fitting in. Hughes makes his work relatable, and I think that is what makes his work so unforgettable, and Hughes of the greatest film directors of all
Second Shadow “There is no advertisement as powerful as a positive reputation traveling fast” ( Brian Koslow). Although this quote is talking about the advertisement of one’s reputation, the main point of the quote shows that a positive reputation is a powerful source of one’s character. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, upholding one’s reputation is a dominant theme. In the play, there are many situations where characters’ reputations are put to the test. From the outcomes of these tests, the viewpoint that other characters hold of their peers affects the plot, conflict, and outcome of Arthur Miller’s drama.
Hollywood is famous for its ability to make money. Simply recalling the history cannot help Hollywood to gain that amount of money because of audiences’ taste. Therefore, Hollywood frequently misguides the history event, and even creates history. Numbers of movie reviewers and historians are disappointed about Hollywood historical movies. Toplin cited David Armstrong’s comment towards the movie JFK (1991) that JFK misleads the young film watcher by its mixture of real history and dramatic creation.
Fresh Unusual Characters. Tim Burton says, “One person's crazyness is another person's reality. Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me. I am not a dark person and I don't consider myself dark.” This quote means that some things are crazy for people, but for others it is normal. Also this relates to what an odd person Tim Burton is because he uses his differences to create films.

The movie Elements are kind of unique by pulling the darkness and tension from horror movies and the calm and funny blend of family comedies. The new elements give a whole new spin on crime movies showing life in prison instead of the capturing of the criminal. While watching the movie I experienced Awe and hope. That was because though it is easy to give up and lose you can stand up, fight against the odds, and win. What I Learned was what life almost was like in prison and if why is hope so important.
While the bestselling book ‘Kite Runner’ was a huge hit and an ongoing success, the film speaks a completely different story. The largely awaited ‘Kite Runner’ film hit the public like a ton of bricks. Some enjoyed it down to the last second. However, this movie was largely hyped up, and the quite extravagant anticipations from some so called ‘movie experts’ created an even larger bitter aftertaste after watching this movie. The movie was not necessarily bad; however I was quite displeased with the lack in detail which the book had strived in.
Best in the West The Arizona Cardinals are the best franchise in the National Football League. Although the organization has not had an easy time gaining the loyalty of the fans over the years, it has all changed. They are now contenders for the Lombardi trophy and few franchises have the chemistry that has been established here in the desert. There are several reasons why they are the model franchise to which other teams just do not measure up to. Not only do they have the best players, but their front office, and fan base leave other teams in the dust as well.
What the author means by that statement is that at first glance of the American system of success it seems easy, but then as you look deep into what you need as well as taking advantage of other things. You see in the movies how many people in the movies come to America because it is free and they hear so many stories of success. But in reality, they get here and they fail because they don’t know how to actually achieve it all. 4. Globalization can be great for a society, but it can also hurt the society.
But with these two programs, I feel that they are not as effective today, as they were originally supposed to be. Yes these led to very popular artists and writers to become prominent forces in the culture of the time. But in terms of our current culture, there seems to be a declining amount of interest and popularity in these types of arts, in America’s youth. With the implementation of technology in our daily lives many teens and adolescents there interest seems to be focusing more on that, instead of the arts and literature. There is little criticism, that can be given because there is no way that how greatly technology has advanced could have been predicted.
Usually movie sequels, or, prequels aren’t the best but I really fell in love with Monsters University. Monsters University is the story of how Mike and Sully got to where they were in Monsters INC. Ever since Mike visited the Monsters Incorporated Scare Factory as a young monster he’s had this dream of working there and attending Monsters University some day. I always cry happy tears when watching that movie, because I relate to Mike in a big way. A lot of people laughed at Mike when he would exclaim his excitement over one day being a scarer, and that 's the same thing people do to me.
One way they did this was through the use of cut prices and other ploys to attract customers. Other theaters offered “bank nights” where one lucky customer went home with a cash prize (Price). Financial lures aside, another reason the film industry survived was its psychological appeal. Attending movies provided an escape from the dreary suffering of everyday life (Price). Movies of the decade also tended to be of a more realistic nature than the films of the 1920s.
