The music for Gone with the Wind is the paradigm of the Classic Hollywood film score, and the music for Citizen Kane represents, like the film as a whole, a departure. The classic Hollywood style is defined by the following features: wall-to-wall music, music scored for symphony orchestras, a Post-Romantic style, employed well-known melodies which have a full range of emotions and reflect drama, and used leitmotifs which tend to be full melodies. A specific example of this in Gone with the Wind is evident in the use of the “Tara Theme” which is the Principal theme of the film. It is heard in the opening credits and in the film with the mentioning of Tara which was Scarlet’s
He does not, however, do this. He rarely makes the most of his own wealth. For example, he hardly ever attends his own parties, and his shirts, which are expensive, are neatly folded away in a cupboard, almost as though he never wears them. He made his fortune bootlegging, and yet never seems to be drinking. He has a whole library of books, but he never reads them, and hasn’t made use of his own swimming pool “all summer”.
Typically when it comes down to choosing whether I like a book or a movie about the book, I will choose the book. However, though the book The Great Gatsby added a bit more detail than the movie did, the soundtrack from the movie is what really drove me towards liking the movie more. The desire of the soundtrack was to blend the music of the Jazz Age associated with the 1922 setting of the story with a modern spin, and in my opinion, was done perfectly. I chose three songs from the soundtrack to mash up and sing/play on the piano. The first song is a major musical motif in Baz Lurhmann’s 2013 Great Gatsby, and the title is “Young and Beautiful”, sung by the amazingly talented Lana Del Ray.
Musicals, Spring Awakening and Wicked Many successful musicals nowadays will take you on a trip back into a certain time era. For example, Catch Me If You Can, Ragtime, Billy Elliot, Hair, The Color Purple and Anything Goes, all of which have had tremendous success. The musicals Spring Awakening and Wicked take you on a trip to the past and have both been smash hits at the box office. Although they do have those aspects in common, they are completely different musicals that both take different approaches to their story lines. In this essay I will be talking about the differences in the issues the story deals with, the characters of each story, as well as the musical differences.
The music throughout the whole trilogy is fantastic, but I wanted to focus on the Return of the King because I find the music to be astounding. The music used in the movie accents particular scenes very well and adds to the overall watching experience. The source music is made up of mostly originally composed music, by Howard Shore. There are four songs that were not composed by Howard Shore and their titles are: The Green Dragon, composed by David Donaldson, David Long, Stephen Roche, and Janet Roddick and written by Philippa Boyens; The Edge of Night, composed by Billy Boyd and written by J.R.R. Tolkien; Aragorn's Coronation, composed by Viggo Mortensen and written by J.R.R.
They spend all of their time together, and spend many afternoons at Simamoto’s house, listening to her father’s records. A favorite one is Nat King Cole. Probably one of the reasons they were such good friends is because they both are only children in their family. Young love does not quite progressive and at twelve years old Hajime’s family moved to another town and their fate separated when they began attending different junior schools, but the connection between the two was obviously a strong one. She remains on his mind long after.
Welty said, “Neither of my parents had come from homes that could afford to buy many books, but though it must have been something of a strain on his salary, as the youngest officer in a young insurance company, my father was all the while carefully selecting and ordering away for what he and Mother though we children should grow up with.”(Welty, 391) I remember my father giving me his old Hardy Boys books when I was about eight years old. His words are still in my head,“These were my favorite books as a kid and I want you to enjoy them as I did when I was seven. These books kept me out of trouble,” he laughed. At first I was not really into the Hardy Boys, but since my father loved them I wanted to enjoy them like he did. “My father loved books, and since I loved my father with an aching devotion, I decided to love books as well.”(Alexie, 397) Parents want their children to succeed in life and they know without literacy the world would be a tough place.
Today, like paintings or movies, music is one of the artworks. When we listen to music, we imagine the situation the music describes. Therefore, good music is required to be in harmony with lyrics and melodies. The film music like O.S.T (Original Sound Track) is also same as other music. The Film music helps audiences understand well the movie scene and make audiences move their feelings.
I find this very odd, very odd indeed that I have never met this person to which he speaks, but I do not second guess my masters commands. After this peculiar incident I began to notice something change in my good sir. He would go for days and never meet me at the front door to let him out. This irregularity began to progress more and more. One evening while at home after observing that the laboratory and my masters quarters were empty I stayed awake waiting for him.
Activity #1: Diagnosis John Nash's antisocial behaviour was clear from the very beginning of the movie where we notice him seated alone and not speaking to anyone. As the movie develops he is hardly seen associating himself with people other than his roommate who he relies on and to who he states that "the truth is I don't like people much, and they don't much like me." Abnormal behaviour John displays is where he starts to believe he had been hired for a top-secret government mission, even though he hadn't. These delusions often led him to ramble on about things that no one could understood. Disorganized speech is another symptom of schizophrenia which he displayed frequently.
