This scene takes place about an hour into the film. The director’s intention with this scene was to show the second task Ofelia had to complete and to set up the conflict between Ofelia and the underworld. This film was made in 2006, where special effects were high tech and very realistic. This is reflected in the film and how heavily it relies on fantasy effects such as fairies and the Pale Man. It is highly regarded for its fantastic special affects use, winning an Academy Award for “Best Achievement in Makeup” among others.
Released in 1978, “Halloween” is definable as a film of the ‘slasher’ sub-genre of horror; not the first of the movement, but unarguably a defining film in the progression of horror as a genre. The film uses many of the conventions of the slasher film, providing viewing pleasure in recognition of such features for a fan of the genre in that they know they are watching the type of film that they enjoy. However, it is the areas in which “Halloween” differs from and redefines aspects of the slasher that afforded the film such profound success (as it is offering something new; a unique selling point for any film), and also caused such profound change within the slasher and within horror as a whole. The film’s opening shows both the conforming to such conventions, and also the new idea that most set “Halloween” apart from similar slasher-type horrors, and had the greatest effect on the wider genre; as the film’s tagline states, horror coming home. One of the first films to use this theme, “Halloween” is set apart in that does so whilst tying in other themes, such as the idea of the dysfunctional American family, and the removal of childhood innocence.

There is a long list of Action-Comedy genre films in Hollywood, which smashes their box offices with blockbuster hits. There is no doubt that every Action-Comedy movie has its own attractiveness to catch all ages of audiences. For my academic studies I have chosen three super hit Action-Comedy Hollywood movies: * Kung Fu Panda Part 1 * Night at the Museum part 1 * Rush Hour Part 1 * Kung Fu Panda 1: All appreciated movies tend to continue, similarly Kung Fu Panda part 1 also came up with its trilogy. It's the story about a lazy, irreverent slacker panda, named Po, who is the biggest fan of Kung Fu around. Unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po's dreams become reality when he joins the world of Kung Fu, under the leadership of his guru, Master Shifu.
9 Paranormal Activity 2 Film Analysis Kimberly Kihega ENG225 Instructor Melissa Rigney December 5, 2011 9 Paranormal Activity 2 Film Analysis For years, the film industry has capitalized on America's fascination with the “unknown”, with films from “The Exorsist” to the “Blair Witch Project”. A handful are unbelievably realistic, affecting viewers emotionally and pshyscologically. Most simply never live up to their expectations. The “Paranormal Activity” series arrive at a time when we have become entralled, and disturbed, by poltergeists. Paranormal Activity 2 certainly delivers every promise it has made, capitalizing on our fears of the unknown in the same simplistic fashion as the original.
Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho has been commended for forming the archetypical basis of all horror films that followed its 1960 release. The mass appeal that Psycho has maintained for over three decades can undoubtedly be attributed to its universality. In Psycho, Hitchcock allows the audience to become a subjective character within the plot to enhance the film's psychological effects for an audience that is forced to recognize its own neurosis and psychological inadequacies as it is compelled to identify, for varying lengths of time, with the contrasting personalities of the film's main characters. Hitchcock conveys an intensifying theme in Psycho, that bases itself on the unending subconscious battle between good and evil that exists in everyone through the audience's subjective participation and implicit character parallels. Split between good and evil First Analysis Scene: (use unsuspecting instead of random) The scene opens with a high angled panning shot through a large city, with texts showing “Phoenix, Arizona”, on “Friday, December 11th”, at “two forty-three p.m.” which is entirely random, however it creates a sense of curiosity as to why Hitchcock would choose it and whether it is important later on in the film.
Regardless of being a science fiction film, Jurassic Park seems to follow a more realistic plot compared to other science fiction films. It is possible that we could clone extinct animals from fossilized mosquitos and build a theme park to generate revenue. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly states that “Jurassic Park lacks emotional quality of Speilberg’s other classics,” such as Jaws and E.T,

Milton Arbogast, John McIntire as Sherriff Chambers, Frank Albertson as Tom Cassidy, Patricia Hitchcock as Caroline, this film is a brilliant terror tale for a few reasons.

Hitchcock was known for his surprise cameos as well as his advanced camera work which Is meant to make the viewer the voyeur from the beginning scene which finds a couple enjoying each other’s company in their motel room through a window he also, later in the movie shows Marion Crane, played by Janet Leigh undressing and the camera is looking through a hole in the wall, and Hitchcock being his normal self-decided to hide this so called peep hole behind a picture of a naked woman.
