The dialogue and lyrics are straightforward and full of ironic elements, which bring a lot of fun to enjoy. The transition from lines into a song is pretty smooth. For example, when Shrek is “hurt” by what Fiona says and his anger reaches a climax, he naturally starts to sing to express his emotion. In addition, the music, which embraces several styles such as pop, rock and jazz, also add dynamics into the show. So in sum, the writing of the show is well-done.
Clown characters were based upon the real-life career of court jesters, who were employed by nobles and royalty to entertain them by use of physical and verbal comedy (“Shakespeare’s Clowns and Fools”). Because of their roles as entertainers, jesters were often given more freedom to be blunt than other courtiers and say whatever foolish or even offensive things they desired, because masters and audiences could be amused by the stupidity of their words (Rasmussen and DeJong). Nick Bottom, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is one of the best examples of Shakespeare’s use of these genuinely foolish clowns. Throughout the play, Bottom makes thoughtless and incorrect comments on characters and events to provide viewers with comic relief (“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”). To add physical comedy, “Bottom 's head is transformed into that of a donkey, making him the butt of the play 's biggest joke” (Shmoop Editorial Team, “Bottom”).
“Innocence is what he knows, beauty is what she sees.” -In the words of Edward Scissorhands. The well-respected and director Tim Burton is always admired for his distinctive yet astonishing films. He uses many cinematic techniques in one of his most popular films, Edward Scissorhands, but a wide variety he uses would be some such as framing/angles, music/sound and lighting. In Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton uses framing/angles as emphasis in the fulfillment of one certain scene. He uses a long shot to show the vulnerability of the character.
Troy Ross Comp 1 9/22/2014 Rocky “Life is not about how hard of a hit you can give… it’s about how many you can take and still keep going.” This is one of Sylvester’s Stallone quotes from the movie Rocky. One of the greatest movies of all time. A lot of research went into this paper. The challenges Sylvester Stallone faced to produce Rocky presented every obstacle, had an all-star cast, and was the greatest underdog story ever told. Stallone was and actor and screen writer, who wrote the screen play for Rocky in three days.
Limited for most of the time to two sets, the film 's great strength is the interplay between the two leads, who play former spouses having a tough time remaining apart. It also boasts one of the blackest comedy situations ever, as a small-time loser finds himself up against city corruption and imminent execution. Clever, witty and extremely satisfying, this marvelous film is still achingly funny
Frank Ford C. also did a good job with the plot of the story and bringing it to life. My favorite parts were the fight at the beginning, the rumble, and when Dally gets shot. I enjoyed these parts for the action, not the violence. Especially since Dally was my favorite character. The only thing I didn’t like about the movie was the music.
Both those things could be considered exaggerations. I chose to write about the film Fight Club because it shows lots of satire. The satire in this movie is easy to write about and there are many choices. The satire is obvious but not too obvious for the viewers. The producer did this on
IMDb gave Elf an overall rating of 6.9 out of 10, and Rotten Tomatoes rated the film 84%. This success is thanks to the films actors, who are one of the main reasons why this film was so successful. The main character, Buddy, is played by the famous Will Ferrell, who has starred in many other very popular movies such as, Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys, and The Lego Movie, Ferrell is most well known for his hilarious sense of humor in all the comedy films that he is in, he is
Aside from that, there are kind of people who draw or doodle caricatures with exaggerating in humorous manner. These people are somewhat naive. Arthur Lake, a movie star, sketches himself, as did Joe Penner, and other comedians who can laugh at themselves. There is some doodle more common than other, such as circular lines. Circular lines usually indicate a softer approach to life and its many problems.
His universe is quite appealing than scary, although he uses strange characters to get his point across. Burton does this to show some people feel outcasted but it’s okay to be different. He portrays life as a cruel but kind, funny and disturbing place. Tim Burton has had a major impact on media with his own unique tastes and his ability to stay true to himself. His films are well known to everyone, and are also very much enjoyed.
While I read the article about Tyler Perry by Crunk Feminist Collection, I totally disagreed with the overall viewpoint. Tyler Perry is an amazing actor, comedian, and director. I believe that Tyler Perry is good at what he does. For those that know of Tyler Perry background, there would be some type of understanding for his movies. I don’t believe Perry hates black women.
Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama breathed life into that show. While the jokes alone were hilarious, the portrayal of Eric, Jackie, Kelso, Hyde, Donna, and Fez by those specific actors and actresses is what made the series work. This is why That 80’s Show, the non spinoff but clearly related show, did not work as well, since those cast members did not have an amazing chemistry with each other. However, what if there was an official spinoff of That 70’s Show?
