In his essay “Why we crave horror movies”, Stephen King said even though horror movies are scary and send irritating vibes to the audience, they are still craved. Mr. King mentioned three reasons why people crave horror movies, to prove they are not afraid, to exhibit emotions and just to experience the concept of violence. Most people get scared, annoyed or uncomfortable and frightened while watching horror movies, but they still want to watch them because they are enjoyable and thrilling. People watch scary movies because they are somehow considered a way of experiencing fear in a controlled set, which turns into an enjoyable experience once over since it’s not a real threat. Some horror movies fans see the enjoyment of scary movies similar to riding roller coasters, a thrilling ride.
Explain why or why not. I think there are many reasons a person will laugh at a joke that will put down other people. One such reason is immaturity. Having worked with teenagers I think that this is their favorite way to joke around. I think it makes them feel better about themselves.
The term exploitation is used heavily in film marketing as reference to what a movie will take advantage of in order to be more appealing to audiences. Themes are often sensationalist and exaggerated at the expense of the quality of the cinema, effectively labelled by academics as paracinema. Many aspects of the production can be exploited, such as using violence or sex to lure viewers. Movies such as these became extremely popular during the 60's and 70's in response to less censorship. However exploitation films in the 30's and 40's took on a more innocuous role in claiming to be educational in nature.
The movie could have improved by providing more realistic explosions in battle and if the actors talked slower and more clearly so the audience might understand them better. Also, a lot of the acting was overdone and dramatic to a point that it was comical. All in all, the entire movie wasn’t horrible. It had a good, easy-to-follow plot that had some interesting points. Some of the acting was bad, but there were good performances by Jim and a couple of the other soldiers.
Some say it has changed for the worst; that it is a bad influence on others choices, whereas others say it still has the same typical concept. They fail to realize that reality television is simply just a documentary of people’s lives. Whether they choose to take each other’s heads off or make love to their best friends’ boyfriend, it will not have a negative effect on people’s life decisions or choices. When people think about Reality TV they begin to picture a group of people arguing and punching each other out simply because that is what reality TV has become today. For some reason the bickering and fighting on these shows tends to attract a large audience.
In his essay, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” Stephen King tells us that some reasons we like a good horror flick are: to prove that we aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night, to make us feel “normal,” and to have some good old-fashioned fun. Upon reading these assertions, I began to reflect on my own attitudes about the horror film genre. I have never considered myself to be a horror film fan. I tend to shy away from movies with extreme gore, violence, and gratuitous blood shed. They aren’t fun.
Although using humor might be considered scandalous to some critiques, everyone can admit that Chaplin made a remarkable film based on his famous sense of humor. As Enid Welsford (2008) said, “comedy evokes a critical and thoughtful reaction from an audience because it challenges symbolic orders.” The way Chaplin chose to present the characters in the movie is very special, because every person who watches the film knows who they are; however, one did not think that someone can present them in such a foolish way, which makes this portrayal so special. Although it was a controversial decision, Chaplin chose to portray these figures as clowns, which enabled him
Why do Tim Burton and Johnny Depp work so well in their movies together? Is it the style, the characters, or could it even be the movie? Tim Burton is known for creating a twisted, unique style in his movies. He always seems to please the audiences with his different and eerie style. In the movies Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands Tim Burton uses the two stylistic techniques, mysterious tone, and a twisted mood to help convey mysterious aspects of the characters.
Comedy can break through all the red tape and say what others cannot. Secret thoughts are observations that society as a whole might feel or want to say without the fear that usually follows. Comedians are able to speak freely and be honest about their opinions. People laugh at something funny not only because it’s entertaining, but also because the context of the material used by the comedian. An example is used by George Carlin and his “Sever dirty words”, which were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C.
The use of audio codes and montage affects aid this technique as they can create suspense and juxtaposition of certain objects or people. Mise en Scene was used well in Donnie Darko directed by Richard Kelly, in the scene where Donnie and Gretchen go to the celladoor. The music in this scene creates a lot of suspense and makes us feel as if something is going to happen. The use of montage created suspense as Gretchen and Donnie kept on looking at each other, looking curious. This technique is used by many directors of art films as it is makes the audience more engaged in the film and makes them feel like their apart of the film.
