I've got to say it wasn't easy trying to figure out which one I liked best, but I got to say I liked the film much more prominent then the novel. To see the action and adventure come to life was astonishing. Once you watch it though you see lots of differences from the novel and the film. You might see some from the characters or from something else. You will have to read it your self, but I will give you some differences to give you an idea of it.
I enjoyed the casting choices because the actors and scenery joined to convey a part of the movies theme. It discussed issues that were amenable. As stated in our text by Edward G. Robinson, “an audience identifies with the actors of flesh and blood and heartbeat, as no reader or beholder can identify with even the most artful paragraphs in books or the most inspiring paintings. There, says the watcher, but for some small difference in time or costume or inflections or gait, go I …. And so, the actor becomes a catalyst; he or she brings ignition that spark in every human being that longs for the miracle of transformation”.
Since the last essay I have found more things to enjoy about the films that are beneficial to my video practice. I found the Experimental Feature day particularly exciting. I have always been a Kenneth Anger fan so that may have woken me up a little bit. I have seen Cocteau’s Blood of a Poet in a few different contexts now and for some reason, this time around, I was particularly struck by the film. Every time I have seen this movie I have considered it to be cheesy.
This is then all thrown out of the window if my spouse is pleading with me to watch something else. There are many things that make a film enjoyable. I am pretty easy when it comes to finding the good in most movies. I can love a movie just because it has that one scene or that one character that makes me laugh. I think that anything from a good plot to a great chemistry on camera makes a movie enjoyable to me.
Some people like comedies others romantic or dramas. What's about me I do like movies that are based on true story. Movies that has meaning in them, some point and some sense. My criteria for a good movie is that there is no acts of violence ,no strong language. Nothing silly, nothing about love that will last forever.
James Stewart was one of the best actors of the 1950’s. He had many charactistic that know one in Holly Wood. I think James Stewart was very successful in his movie career because, he was soft spoken and he believed that he could do any role that came his way. While I was growing up I watched two movies that James Stewart was in. The first movie was Vertigo.
The signs of future lie in the remote past passing through present and aiming to future. Hamlet is the supreme embodiment of man's perfection. His is the beloved son who attracts his dead father's energy. He is entitled to solve this mystery, to restore the law of the Great Mechanism. In most translations from books to movies, producers sacrifice certain elements to narrow the focus and make the film unique to his style.
I'm much more of a "genre" fan, and I much prefer fantasy, surrealism and absurdism to realism. My preconceptions were throwing me off of the film initially. The realist drama stuff seemed to drag on, and it made much of the film a hard sell. I loved the touches of weirdness, but they were too little, too far between--at least until I reached my personal interpretation of the film around the halfway mark. The film is also odd in that it's so retro.
Just because someone has a strong desire to watch horror films doesn’t mean they are complete freaks because many just love the adrenaline rush that these types of movies give off. Linked to a horror film would be much like the movie called Strangers. This movie was well played for its exhilaration it gives to the people. Movies of this type generate people to use their imagination, but can be looked
The Culture Industry and A Walk to Remember Adam Shankman’s A Walk to Remember has proved to be a favorite of audiences across the country. The movie’s legitimacy as something artistic, however, is bound to be questioned by some. As a part of the film industry, A Walk to Remember provides good means to explore the true motives of the culture industry using the opposing views of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer and Gerald Graff. Theorists Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer would see this movie as nothing more than a new spin on the same old story. Gerald Graff, on the other hand, would commend A Walk to Remember as an art form that gives rise to many debates and arguments about the movie and that gives viewers a chance to prove their intellectualism outside of the academic realm.
