The whole arch of this character as far as I can understand is to reflect how fanaticism can affect those involved in cults. Hoult, has been diversifying his roles in every movie he makes. Long gone are the days he jumped to fame from his TV persona. His participation gives the movie a balance on how the other side of the civilization is especially those that adore Joe.

Argument #1: Creating a mood or atmosphere The famous Romeo and Juliet play has many movie adaptions created over the past century. Two of the most notable Movies based on this play would be that of Franco Zeffirelli, which was made in 1968. The other would be that of Baz Lurhmann’s, made in 1996. I believe that Shakespeare’s intent, to create a Hateful atmosphere in the play was better represented by Baz Lurhmann, as he focused on presenting the play in a more dramatic way.

The movie "O" is the perfect representation of a modern-day Othello, each element in the movie from the characters to the plot all correspond to the original play. Though they had many similarities in the plots, characters and even theme, they had minor differences that made it obvious which was the more modern version. For every character in the play Othello there 's a character in the movie that goes through the exact same thing. For example in the play Iago and Roderigo team up and plot against Othello, and Iago pretends that Desdemona and Iago are going to break up so Roderigo can come into the picture but the end of it all Iago ends up killing Roderigo. The same thing happens in the movie.

Baz Luhrmann, a film director, is one of many who have attempted to recreate Shakespeare’s famous Romeo and Juliet. Luhrmann has added numerous changes to the film as can be expected however, throughout many of his scenes there is the element of water which leads to the question, what does water symbolize?

Mostly everyone has been exposed to Romeo and Juliet. We’v seen some of the classic movie adaptions, but what about the contemporary? In 2013, Warm Bodies was released.

He eventually moved his family from California to New Mexico. He soon came up with a solution to this problem, however, finding that as long as he used a front to hide that he was the real author, he could write screenplays. One of those fronts was Robert Rich, a name Trumbo used to write the screenplay for the movie “The Brave One.” It won an Academy Award, but since Robert Rich didn’t actually exist, it was soon revealed that the credit went to Trumbo. After this, people in Hollywood realized that Trumbo was too great a writer to pass up, and he was hired to write a film—one that he would get credit for. He was officially removed from the blacklist in 1960, and from then on, he continued to work in Hollywood until his death, which was in 1976.
DB#5 Original Post While reading this article, I did not get through the first ten sentences of the article because I immediately recalled that I had seen a movie called Compliance that was inspired by true events based off Louise Ogborn 's nightmare.
