A particular example of this can be seen in Act 3, Scene 1, in which Puck transforms Bottom's head into that of an Ass, comical because it is a basic example of visual, almost slapstick, humour. Following this, Puck gleefully declares that his 'mistress with a monster is in love', potentially also making him a clever, cynical wit. During the character's time in the forest, or what Frye describes as the 'Green World', the hierarchies are very much distorted, resulting in Puck seeing himself much higher up in the hierarchy than usual, 'what fools these mortal be', and thus we see the slaves becoming the masters. In festival typically, we all become maters and the subversion of
As they are playing, they talk about all their bad memories and start to open up to each other. “The play brings laughs but also some gripping moments ‘that will rip your heart out’”(Bridges, Alex. http://www.nvdaily.com/lifestyle/2009/07/award-winning-the-gin-game-is.html). This movie shows comic and tragic moments which make it a piece of art. The comic part about this movie was the laughter and jokes they said throughout the whole movie.
320) This is verbal irony because it shows that whatshe is saying is basically telling the grocer what she used for the murder of her husband. The irony here is amusing, knowing the fact that killed the supposed love of her life and can so easily lie about it. So again, the verbal irony really catches the toneof the dark comedy that Dahl is trying to capture here. Both dramatic and verbal ironyrelate to each other in the sense that the audience feels the ideas of a tragedy assomething funny therefore, relating back to the overall picture of the piece of literate asa dark
One example of two versions that have nearly nothing in common but the dialogue are those starring Kenneth Branagh and David Tennant - one has the colors and music reminiscent of Superman, while the other is decidedly more understated and dark. In the Branagh version, Hamlet can run, jump, and tumble as well as any trapeze artist, and has the rugged good looks of a punk rocker from the eighties. At the start of Act 5, we see our hero and Horatio spying on two jolly gravediggers who throw around skulls as a game and playfully insult each other like children. Despite this revelry, the scene is not accompanied by any music and the graveyard is spookily lit, reminding the audience that this is not as lighthearted as it may seem. The shots are primarily very close to the actors faces, the progress of the scene relying heavily on facial expression and tone of voice.
Nicholas shows his butt and farts in Absalon’s face, but Absalon sticks him with a hot poker, and when Nicholas cries for water, the husband thinks that this is the sign that the flood is coming, and so he crashes to the floor. The neighbors laugh at John’s preparation for flood and that he has lost his mind. Plus, they know for sure that his wife has cheated on him. Literary Merit: Irony Chaucer uses the idea of irony in his language to create his characters and their unique natures. The character of Alison, despite her attempts to create an image of a lady, is completely promiscuous, and from this emerges dishonesty.
Unquestionably Archer is primarily a comedy, its various other forms are all subservient to the main goal, to make one laugh. Archer relies heavily on parody, random gags and gross out humor, which are all common strategies among animated comedies. In the first scene Sterling is being interrogated in what appears to be an eastern European dungeon of sorts. Shortly after Archer makes fun of the interrogators accent-switching and under-powered torture device it is revealed that the torture is under the supervision of Sterling’s mother, Malory and is merely a practice exercise. Archer is introduced as a immature, yet capable and Malory is presented as a domineering executive/mother.
"Modern comedy is cruel and cynical” Barry Cryer. To what extent do you agree that cruelty and cynicism are at the heart of the comedy in ‘Educating Rita’? Cruelty and cynicism play a vital role in creating comedy in ‘Educating Rita’. Both of the characters have aspects of their lives that the audience can laugh at, however for a majority, it can be perceived as cruel due to the fact that most of the circumstances we laugh at negatively impact the lives of the characters. Willy Russell uses superiority theory to engage the audience by creating comedy through the misfortune of others.
The violence begins in a comic book setting with a confrontation between the Crimson Chin and his enemy H2olga. She begins with the verbal threat that she will, “Use her control of all liquids to destroy him once and for all!” Which she then follows up with a light squirt of fountain water at his face. This clearly demonstrates the humor of the show. One issue that concerns me with humorous violence is that it sends the message that violence is funny and thus is ok. When children see this they
but by uising funny music like clown/circus music the scene ends up beeing funny. types of music used in film is determend for the expression in the film. we know that music effekts our way we watch a film and that musik can make the movie look at it. Famous horror films and their music Stephen King According to Stephen King there are three types of horror: Terror: the audience doesn’t know what is going on behind ‘the closed door’ ilm Horror there is a monster, but still there are limits to what it does to its victims. (scared/terrified) The gross out: animals like worms and maggots are used to make people feel sick/ nauseous.
A very good example of a scary, but realistic horror character is Jigsaw, in the “saw” franchise. He is extremely effective and people still fear him after they watch the film, purely because however creepy and bizarre the traps he sets may be, they are all possible to happen. That’s what makes the “saw” franchise so successful. In order to make an extremely effective character, especially in horror you really need to consider what the character is made up of. The main things to consider about a character would be their: appearance, behaviour, reaction to events, and their voice.
