Tim Burton, a well-known film director, has many more opportunities to display tone and mood than an author would. In movies such as Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland he uses various cinematic techniques to display eerie moods and tones. Burton’s films astonish many audiences because of his brilliant use of sound, angles, and lighting to display a unique, gothic, and unusual style for himself.

“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies. In the past, he has produced dramatic movies like Madea’s Big Happy Family and Diary of a Mad Black Woman.

Madea persuaded me that the movie would be funny by knocking the clown out on the T.V.
Ghost stories, surprise twists, and the unknown are all elements that a lot of audiences enjoy.

The film, Napoleon Dynamite, is full of laughs, but that is a study of the outcasts in society. Hess uses film techniques of sound and editing to emphasize the difficulties and rewards of being weird.

The eerie music brings mystery to the meeting of the girls in the forest. Also the suitable shots in the movies allows the watchers to see the looks and emotions of the characters more clearly. Miller gives Elizabeth a shot with an entangled face to show her confusion of saying the truth or tell the lie in order to save John. Technical knowledge is necessary for a splendid movie. In short, “The Crucible” has the attractive aspect, the responsible actors, and the unique effects to become one of the successful movies by Hollywood.
The lighting he uses incorporates a sense of fantasy and reality, shown in Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. The town and factory are shown in high key lighting to show that it is their dream or fantasy. Their homes are shown in low light to represent loneliness and poverty respectively.

‘Nowadays, the work of Alfred Hitchcock is admired all over the world’ (Truffaut, 1986, p.9). Although this was stated in 1966 in the original copy it still applies today as Hitchcock’s body of work consists of fifty-three films some of which are worldwide phenomena. Young audiences who consume his films today assume that Alfred Hitchcock’s work has always been at its prime; this however was not always the case, it is only now after his passing that more people are beginning to understand how truly masterful some of his films are but in subjectivity of course as his films cannot please everyone.

Frost repeatedly uses this symbol, and “the image...has represented indecision in Frost’s other poems…‘Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening,’ ‘Birches,’ and ‘Mowing’” (Rukhaya).
