Rhetorical Analysis of “The Secret” movie “The Law of gravity is like the law of attraction.” In the movie The Secret, it uses many logical fallacies and the logical chain of reasoning to argue that if you know the “Secret,” then everything you want or everything you are attracted to you will get it. The logical chain of reasoning used in this movie consists of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos and the logical fallacies committed are Equivocation, False Cause, Slippery Slope, Hasty Generalization, and Black or White. If one or more logical fallacies are committed and/or one part of the logical reasoning is not strong enough then your argument is not strong enough and if your argument is not strong enough then it will fall apart. But it does not always take one fallacy to break down a whole arguement. In the beginning of the movie they used suspenseful music and imagery to keep the viewer more interested and make the viewer want to know what the “Secret” is and this is part of the logical chain of reasoning known as Pathos.

Throughout this film, the characters create many arguments and unjustifiable conclusions, for the sake of entertainment. This film connects to our first unit, Philosophical foundations, because it demonstrates the importance of using good reasoning, making sound arguments, logic, fallacies, and syllogisms. During the philosophical foundations unit, we learned about sound arguments, fallacies, logic, syllogisms, and the importance of good reasoning. We learned that good reasoning, or logical reasoning, is the process of forming conclusions, judgements or inferences from facts or premises.
In Beetlejuice the special effects that are used are believable to the story and also essential to the credibility of the film. “Too often, however, elaborate visual effects do not just serve to enhance the story but become the focus of the film.” (Petrie & Boggs, 2012) The special effects do not overshadow the characters but instead enhance them and creates a believable world to the audience.

It also demonstrates how a desire to uncover the truth quickly intensifies into an all consuming obsession. And finally, it shows the glorious yet bittersweet moment when everything has been released and all that remains is the truth. *** Seeing a concept visually can sometimes be more valuable than words alone.

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.
