I realize that probably sounds confusing, but what I mean is that there is so much truth behind the joke that if there were no comedic techniques it would very well become a hurtful message. There are themes in the joke such as, physical and domestic abuse, that aren’t really taken lightly. It is the techniques being used, like the hyperbole at the end and the absurdity of the violent suggestion that allow for the person hearing the joke to laugh. The situational irony and verbal irony also assist with the level of humor. The first joke about the female crying at the sound of her name is funny, but there aren’t as many factors working for it.
Cinematic Value: Acting and Dialogue: 7: One of my fears of this films was that Will Smith would hog the limelight, he doesn 't surprising. He might not have stolen the limelight but he brought a lot of himself to the character of Deadshot. There were a good amount of Will Smith-ism that made Deadshot feel less like Deadshot. I thought Will Smith had
The purpose of art is to evoke emotion, although that emotion may disgust or dismay, and Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 film Vertigo is no exception. While many critics adore it, naming it one of their top movies of all time, many audience members may leave feeling uncomfortable or even angry at some of the characters’ actions. From the obsessive, borderline stalker to the man who goes to great lengths to trick an old friend and murder his wife, this is not a feel-good movie. But the aspects of this film that tend to give audience such a negative emotional response are exactly what cause critics to praise it. The film turns the table on the audience, showing them how disturbing it is for someone to watch someone else while the audience does just that,
Which has, in turn, given female actors or characters the ability to outgrow such previous stereotypes that were once typically portrayed in horror films. For instance, generally in movies as Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, American Psycho and others alike, the killer or bad “guy,” ironically was far too purposefully male, powerful, and merciless. The reason for
Watching a drama movie makes the recipient cry, which leads to a sensation of relief (Lazarus, 1991). It is also important to note that the expression of sad emotions by crying mostly leads to comforting actions by others. This form of attention on itself can make a person feel better (Vingerhoets, Cornelius, Van Heck & Becht, 2000). However, concerning the cathartic effect of media forms and especially film, the empirical research that has been done lacks consistency and especially broadness (Zillmann, 1998). The “Catharsis Theory” might have been a very widespread theory, but due to its lack of empirical evidence, it is rejected and considered irrelevant by many researchers nowadays (Khoo & Oliver, 2013).
Hughes utilizes attention-grabbing adjectives when describing the film to successfully entice and persuade the reader to watch it. His choice of words including “grand ride” and “espionage thriller” portray Hughes’ positive opinion of the movie and draw the reader in. In addition, Hughes’ diction contributes to the positive tone readers sense, in part because of his opinion of the movie. On the other hand, Mendelson’s negative outlook towards the film provides diction and tone with a dissenting connotation. “What we have is a deeply problematic film with much to recommend despite itself.

Horror Films Horror Films are defined as unsettling films created to scare and frighten; cause stress, alarm and dread; and to awaken the worst hidden fears that are locked away in people’s subconscious, often in a terrifying and shocking climax while capturing their ascination at the same time (http://www.filmsite.org/horrorfilms.html) Horror films are easy to identify because they have a distinguished and recognizable pattern that happens again and again. They play on the audiences’ primal fears; they deal with their phobias, revulsions and terror of the unknown. Usually, their plots often include an evil force intruding in the lives of the living, seeking revenge or wanting to take possession of someone’s body. These examples are called cycles, and this is a process in which Horror Films are remade more than once or twice or their plot becomes a basis for another one, or that one movie is made to have several sequels or prequels until they run out of steam and then they would repeat the same pattern again (http://www.filmsite.org/supernatfilms.html ; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horror_film) Horror films has been around for quite some time now and they were greatly influenced by Gothic Literature especially those from Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker and Edgar Allan Poe. The considered first horror film ever produced was Le Manoir du Diable (The Manor of the Devil) by Georges Méliès which was released in the year 1896.
When the montage of shots in the shower scene are examined frame by frame, we can see that the knife actually penetrates Marion’s body. Hitchcock used a prosthetic to showcase this act and it was very cleverly hidden in the montage sequence of the shower scene. Therefore we can see that violence was actually vivid to a certain scale even back then. But considering that Psycho was the film that broke many taboos and risked such graphic visual imagery, it is safe to say that the display of violence in mainstream horror movies has increased. Looking at Psycho and it controversial release, it is evident that the societal norms during that time were a lot more conservative than those of now.
