Luhrmann cast and presents the characters are captivating and special in some areas, but breakdown in others. Leonardo DiCaprio seems to fit in Jay Gatsby’s roll really well, showing off his lavish and party-driven lifestyle, symbolizing his American Dream perfectly. Same can be said about Daisy Buchanan. Her love for Gatsby, sooner or later being with him is her American Dream, which was portrayed nice as well in the crossover from the book to the silver screen. These perfect portrayals break down there, however, from Tobey Maguire playing Nick Carraway.

When you change a book to a movie, you lose some good things, but you gain others. In "The Giver" the movie, there are many changes and lost scenes, but there is also wonderful additions that you can see and hear now, such as music and the character 's expressions. While the movie is not a facsimile of the book, it’s still really good. Many things such as color, landscape, sounds, music, character’s expressions, and more played a huge role in the novel and the movie, but they played different parts in each. Music and the character 's expressions were things that made the movie better, by putting focus on the mood of the story and showing important things the community is missing.
Instead the bassline acquires a rhythm all its own, becoming the true melody of the piece, with repeating melodic fragments that propel the piece forward layered on top. This technique has been used by Nobuo Uematsu in writing battle music for the Final Fantasy series. The bassline (or other additional low instrument if the bass is extremely low) play alternating on-beat, off-beat patterns which produces an adrenaline rush. Though some OWGs might not be happy about their techniques being used for “frivolous entertainment”, most would be excited given how video games give modern composers innovative opportunities (and worthy compensation) they would never find in film or academia. The rules that underpin Baroque music provide structure and inspiration to modern composers to recreate the music of the chiptune era and create the future of video game soundtracks: adaptive music.
After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.

Film genres give the audience information into the type movie it may be, this in turn helps them to decide whether the movie is suitable for them or not. The Maltese Falcon, a film categorised as Film Noir and The Searchers, a Western genre film, are both from different genres but both reinforce and challenge dominant social and cultural beliefs and values throughout each film. Each genre can be broken down into; codes, conventions and narrative conventions. Codes are aspects of the text that help the audience make meaning. These codes can be shown as symbolic, written, audio and technical.
This change is necessary though because the short duration of the battle shown alone cost the filmers 12 million dollars of the 70 million dollar budget (“Saving Private Ryan- Eric and Anna - Historical Inaccuracies in Film.”). As one can see, extending the duration could easily skyrocket the price by a fortune. Even with its short duration, this war scene is agreed to be one of the best ever depicted in a historical film by many critics. Another inaccuracy is present when in the opening sequence, an
Hitchcock Etudes were composed by Nicole Lizée in 2014, and released on her album Bookburners. With a combination of disjointed soundtrack music and dialog with similarly altered video segments, Lizée reconstructs a whole new experience of the Hitchcock films. Watching Lizée’s composition I really appreciated and enjoyed the way she deconstructed and recreated the works. As a Hitchcock fan I really enjoyed the new sense of terror and romance she brought to the piece. I believe this piece qualifies as fringe because of Lizée’s unique method of composition.
In the short time they spent together, they both knew they found their soulmate. Unfortunately, their sappy love life was disturbed when the Titanic hit an iceberg. The ship began sinking uncontrollably and they knew they were doomed. Promptly after the ship sunk, they were left to freeze in the Atlantic ocean. They found a door to lay on to keep from staying in the water, but only Rose could fit on it.
This British ocean liner surprised the entire world for its appearance and its newest technology such as wireless telegram, electric light with turbine engine. However, this ocean liner has collapsed during the middle of its journey at 2:12 PM on May 7th 1915. Lusitania was heading from Liverpool, United Kingdom to New York, United States with 1959 passengers and tons of cargoes. While it was passing through Celtic Sea, located near Ireland, a German U-Boat submarine detects Lusitania crossing their self-claimed blockade border from England, and torpedoed the ocean liner.
Saul Bass made movie titles almost as interesting as the movies themselves. He designed such covers as: Psycho; It´s a mad, mad, mad, mad world; Bonjour Tristesse; Vertigo; Grand Prix and North by Northwest; Goodfella; Casino and many others. His unique style made them fun to look at, and enticed viewers to
