Also the fact that the reason his father passed away and couldn't do anything. Creed’s mother had to be behind his dad 100%. So she doesn't want him to death like his father because he's the only one she has left and she doesn't want to lose him. But after All he didn't care and still boxed he took a little to convince his trainer Rocky Balboa because his trainer Rocky knew his father and he also retired from the boxing and training after his friend Adonis dad died. In my opinion the movie was good for me because I learned that if you don't have a help from your parent then you will get it from your someone that believe in you that part of the movie so you can understand it a little of the movie.
An example of the great camera movement is when the camera bobs up and down as it gets closer to the Arizona’s house, this creates the effect that the viewer is actually the person who is approaching the house. Once the camera comes up to the ladder propped up against the window, it rapidly rushes up, then zooms in on Mrs. Arizona’s face as she lets out a gut wrenching screech. The camera

Throughout the movie they use different camera movements, and angles that highlight the different mood this cinematic piece gives. There were various camera angles/movements that were used throughout the movie that would make the scenes very intense and extreme. One example is the first meeting between Clarice and Hannibal Lector. As she first enters the cell we get a point of view shot showing Lector standing completely still in the middle of the cell. This implies everything Jack Crawford said how manipulative, powerful and evil he was. By having a shot like this, we as an audience start to get this uneasy feeling about him. Then this shot is followed by multiple close up shots between Hannibal Lector and Clarice. As we see in the shot, Hannibal Lector begins to show how manipulative and dominating he can be. When we see Clarice, we see the camera at a higher angle to show that she is inferior to him and vulnerable. They also made another point of view shot through Buffalo Bill. The shot through vision was very thrilling in the fact that we could see Clarice is nervously walking around not knowing where she is, while right behind her was Buffalo Bill watching her stumble and touch every wall. This shot gave the audience a tense feeling to keep watching and see what happens. This shot shows that if Jack Crawford was able to just listen to Clarice and not be so edgy by Hannibal Lector’s clue, they would have been there to help Clarice, even though she was able to save the girl and get out safely. One scene that stood out for me was where Clarice tries to manipulate Hannibal Lector into giving up who Buffalo Bill was. She makes a deal to move him to a new prison. The scene shows a low angle shot with Clarice standing up and Hannibal Lector sitting. This showed that she tries to become a dominating figure and make Hannibal Lector play by her rules, but
Many say the best aspect of this film was its cinematography which greatly affected the feel and look throughout. From the opening credits to the last scene of the film the Cinematography was very important, the first scene of the film Jake LaMotta is alone preparing for a fight in a smoky ring. While this scene was shot in slow motion, with its wide angle lens which enlarged the size of the boxing ring. The use of the close frame composition techniques makes the viewers notice that Jake LaMotta is completely

For the cinematography analysis of both movies, I will be basing it on the final scene of both movies.
