The Crucible: The Book or The Movie? When asked the question in which format, the book or the movie, do you as the student get more out of? I personally was able to appreciate the concepts of this story better in the movie than in the book. Its not just the fact that I am a bit more of a visual learner but the simple fact the movie was fantastic because of its wonderful portrayal of the characters and the cohesiveness between the movie and the book. The actors in this movie make an all star cast of Hollywood’s most heralded and respected people.
Couch Carter pushed the boys to be there best and to be the best they had to learn to run a whole game so carter made them to running all the time. If they came to training late he would make them do 1000 suicides and if they said they “N” word they would have to do the same. Doing the suicides made them fit and they could run a whole game and they started winning. Another way carter inspired the boys was with determination they studied then though the gym was unlocked and coach carter retired from coaching because the parents didn’t want him to coach anymore but the players wanted him to be there coach so he coached they team again so it was like he never

Jose Munguia Professor Hartmann English 152-03 1 December 2013 Success of the Wizard of Oz through Television The Wizard of Oz was a spectacular movie. The decade around Oz paved the way for many other amazing movies, which created new genres and set new standards for what a movie should be like. Some of the amazing movies that also came out during 1939 were: Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Of Mice and Men, Love Affair, The Hunchback to Notre Dame, and many other great award winning movies (Films101). Each of these movies have been awarded for their amazing directors, story, actors and visual effects. However, out of all of these movies there has only been one that has been called the most popular movie
Some of the main ideas/the main idea I have explored and developed throughout the film include/is hope, friendship, sympathy with help of various film techniques I have included such as different camera shots and angles, lighting, sound, and mise en scene. The main characters such as Andy Dufresne displayed as the mythic hero and Red being the guide through the film and the other minor characters have also assisted to represent them. The idea I will start to speak about is hope/ Hope is the main idea throughout my film. This is one of the reasons my film is so popular and well-received. It explores this universal theme by presenting characters at the lowest points in their lives and showing that it is worthwhile hoping for things to change.
This film is brimming with more original ideas than any film should ever be asked to carry. And with Carrey at the centre of it all, it is without a doubt one of the more challenging roles seen in Hollywood history. Jim Carrey is a welcoming surprise and a revelation, delivering a performance of a lifetime. He shows us his sublime ability to understand the character of Truman Burbank by executing it superbly. A great deal of his acting talent comes through strongly, if I may say so myself.
This is an outstanding movie and shows the whole world that everybody can do anything even you are in the wheelchair. There are so many reasons why the audience should watch this fabulous film: the film development, actors and actresses, dressing and makeup, and a lot of good feedback after the film. I am gonna talk about Stephen for a little bit. His story caught the audience's breath. Stephen Hawking, which is the main character of this film, is a theoretical physicist-cosmologist and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology which involves the University of Cambridge.
Randall Hansen Comm. Artists W-1 Critic Review: Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan may be just one of the most amazing action-drama films I have ever seen. It provides beautiful cinematography, great perspective, and terrific acting, lead by none other than Tom Hanks. I love the reality of the action in the movie and how I really felt the emotion of everything happening around the group of soldiers that we are focused on. Like all movies there is a focus, and the group of soldiers, mainly Tom Hanks’ character, are whose footsteps we follow through throughout the movie.
“Mary Poppins is a film rich in detail, but its universal appeal is due to the fact that it blends so many elements together.”3 This movie “became an instant, blockbuster hit, with thirteen Academy Award nominations.”4 Such awards were Best Actress Oscar, Best Film Editing Oscar, Best Music Scoring Oscar, Best Song Oscar, and Best Special Visual Effects Oscar. This movie is now over fifty years old and many agree that the history of cinema would not be the same without it. Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins is still a masterpiece today due to the extraordinary hard work of Walt Disney, the wonderful storyline implemented with the use of live action with interludes of animation, and the impeccable acting skills of Julie Andrews. As a young boy, Walt Disney absolutely adored drawing and did so, practically every chance he could. “Walt’s drawings sometimes got him in trouble in school, he would rather doodle than complete his school work.
“The World’s Fastest Indian” (2005) is an insightful movie directed by the world renowned director, Roger Donaldson. A character I enjoyed in this film was Burt Munro. I enjoyed this character because of his high, uplifting spirit of determinat ion. Burt Munro is important because he reveals the ideas of ‘Manawanui (Perseverance),’ ‘Realising Your Dreams’ and ‘Overcoming Obstacles.’ These ideas are seen through the film techniques: dialogue, lighting and types of camera shots and angles. Burt Munro is a character I enjoyed because of his total dedication and wholeheartedness towards his dreams, living a day at a time.
