Even though the 2010 depiction of Death at a Funeral is a close replica of the 2007 version, the later film surpassed its predecessor in all forms of entertainment. Both films were exceptionally funny and amusing, but the earlier adaptation did not demonstrate relatable content to remain as engaging and charming as the later. Mutually, the script, acting, and plot are virtually the same, but in all three categories there was just a little more pleasantry in the latest remake. Despite the characters name change in the 2010 version, you are able to categorize who represents what character from 2007. Starting with Chris Rock as Aaron, his portrayal of Daniel who was originally played by Matthew MacFadyen in the British version is a great clarification of the character.
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.
The Shawshank Redemption is totally the contradictory from other book adaptations that typically have less similarities than differences because The novella have their differences but there similarities stick out. amazingly, there were more similarities between the novella and the film more than I estimated. The principal similarity was that the dialogue between both the written story and film were mostly the same. some of the dialogue in the novella was very realistic, unsuitable, and revolting, and could turn away the people in a movie. All the most important moments and events of the story happened exactly the same way in the same time in both versions.
Multi-threading is a very important aspect to television today, but Johnson believes it has not received the credit it deserves. I agree that multiple threading has positive impact on television today, because of the different characters and plots make TV more interesting. Shows today you have to pay more attention to or you will not understand what is going on. For example The Wire, you have to watch every episode to understand the show. Shows with less multiple threading are easy to understand, because you can predict the ending most of the time.
The Matrix and Terminator 2 are both admired and recognized for their special effects rather than the narrative alone, which drew massive audiences. In The Matrix one of the more incredible and memorable special effect is when Carrie-Anne Mosse acting as Trinity dodges bullets from the villains. These types of bullet time effects we see in the film were originally achieved photographically by a set of still cameras surrounding the subject, which were triggering either sequentially or at once. The singular frames taken from each of the still cameras are then displayed one after another to produce an orbiting viewpoint of a hyper-slow motion or an action frozen in time. On the other hand, if we look at Terminator 2, one of the amazing yet fearful special effects is that of Robert Patrick acting as T-1000.
The increased realism brought on by sound inevitably forced acting styles to become more natural (207). Diegetic and non- diegetic sound in Badlands helped shape the way the we watched the film. The diegetic is heard by the characters in the film, which stresses the realism involved. In some scenes Holly provides voice over which gives the audience a vision into what is happening between her and Kit. Another example of diegetic sound is when Kit and Holly are in the car together towards the end of the movie.
Both Oedipus the King and Minority Report use eyes as a motif, they both are tragedies, and they both have similar characters. These two works may look, at first glance, like two completely different performances. However, with closer analysis, it is clear, that they are very much alike. Spielberg’s Minority Report has many parallels to Oedipus the King, and among them are the use of eyes, and the tragic aspect to them both. However, they are slightly different, in that Spielberg had to make some adjustments to the plot in order to suit a more modern and tougher audience.
In the movie there are many main ideas and techniques that carry the film. Walls,lighting and water The whole movie is in high contrast with the exception of the guards who are mostly in the shadows The lighting of these scenes give a sense of violence without actually showing it in the film 2. Narrator The narrator in this video adds to the movies appeal because of the fact that it is Morgan Freeman. His Voice makes the film much more intense Morgan Freeman’s being the narrator helps keep the audience’s attention He points out the things we do not notice and explains things with more detail so we understand more. Makes the Film more gripping 3.
If these sound effects weren’t used, then the movies message or purpose would not be as effective. Sound effects used in the Bourne Ultimatum were based on the action, when Jason Bourne is running away from the police and the sound effects were sirens, doors slamming and cars crashing which created excitement. The explosions were great as visual aid but then combined with sound effects it became phenomenal. During the office scene, it became more real with sounds of faxes, printers, and phones and typing. The Bourne Ultimatum incorporated sound effects into film scenes, which made the audience, feel present in the scene and therefore made the scene
Asian American culture is being hurt by Hollywood as well, since they are continually the sidekick, or the damsel in distress in movies (Galang, 2003). Not to mention that hardly ever is a distinction made in films between Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, Korean Americans, Thai Americans, Vietnamese Americans, and so on (James, 1999). The identity of each of those cultures is being threatened by such generalizations on broadcast news, films, and the Internet. Even though his thesis is aimed specifically at the Asian American Avant-Garde director target that narrows his focus too much, his strong research has no doubt broadened Asian American studies as a
