The Pilgrimage of grace failed for many reasons, however, I think it failed mainly due to poor leadership. This is because Robert Aske accepted the King’s pardon at the River Don and trusted that Henry was going to discuss their grievances in court. When they accepted the pardon they dispersed back to their homes, which meant that when Henry didn’t do anything about their grievances then it would be difficult for all the rebels to regroup. The rebellion was regionalised to the North of the country and was too far away from London go back after just coming back. M.L Bush said that ‘It was interconnected regional rebellions rather than one fluid movement’ because once the rebels had gone back to where they lived dotted across the North of England they would all have to meet up rather than go down to London in one group.
Life Sucks Screen play adaptations commonly differ from the book on which they are based. Just like gossip between peers is enhanced for entertainment purposes, films are enhanced for these purposes as well. Between Frankenstein, a novel by Mary Shelley, and the screen play adaptation, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, by Kenneth Branagh, there are numerous differences in detail. Nonetheless, there are similarities in the undertone of both mediums that portray mutual morals. However, it would be a blatant falsehood to say that this film adaptation is free from inaccuracy, somehow above reproach, or indeed perfect.
‘Those who have the greatest impact on history are remembered as much for their faults as their achievements’. To what extent does the study of your personality support this view? Leni Riefenstahl was one of the most revolutionary—and certainly most controversial—filmmakers of the early twentieth century. The lasting influence of her innovative filmmaking techniques on twentieth-century cinema is undisputed by filmmakers and scholars throughout history, but the exact nature of her work is surrounded by ongoing controversy. Riefenstahl’s production of the feature films Triumph of the Will and Olympia have left a lasting imprint on history; these films established Riefenstahl’s influential career as a film director under the years of the Nazi regime.
David Barajas English/poli.sci. Eric martinsen March 26,2014 War Mentality Before watching these movies, a little doubt set in that between these two movies there would be a difficult time finding differences and similarities because of such a huge time gap between them. The thought process when approaching these great war flicks was the major military advancements the us government has made to the armed forces since the late 70s. To a nice surprise, a common foundation for these great stories were starting to become clear. The more the movie went into depth, the more stronger the similarities and differences presented themselves.
Finding the instances of Logos, Pathos and Ethos, as defined in Chapter 7 in Nancy Wood’s Essentials of Argument, in Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and Rob Epstein’s film adaptation and docudrama of the same name proved to be a little tricky. While poetry can be an argument, Ginsberg’s freeform style and spontaneous jumping around in lyrics makes it difficult to decipher clear cut examples. I chose to use mostly the film due to the fact that there was a court case and by all means a very clear cut argument. The Government was trying to ban the print and sale of Howl due to its graphic nature. They considered it obscene.
December 8, 2006 CMLT214 Sec 0103 Godard’s Treatment of the New Wave Heroine Jean-Luc Godard left his signature stamp on the films he directed in many ways, through both structural and narrative elements. However, his auteur directing is most apparent through his treatment of the movies’ heroines. His handling of the female characters is at the same time idiosyncratically unique, yet very much a part of the French New Wave movement. “Jean Pierre Melville was to say, ‘No New Wave style existed. If it were to exist it would purely and simply be the style of Godard’” (Ezra 172).
The way in which it was adapted into a scene within a film would therefore have had to been intense and moving to truly capture the essence of the point being made. When considering the success of an adaptation of a novel into a film, it is important to first define and understand what makes an adaptation ‘successful’. In the case of Nineteen Eighty Four, the adaptation would have to create the sense of real claustrophobia and then, in the moment Julia and Winston discover one another, offer the audience the same glimmer of hope Winston experiences. I believe the very nature of the novel centres around the dehumanisation of a whole society and plays on the readers empathy towards those within the novel that are forced to abandon their own; thus it can be said that without the autonomy to decide and imagine for ourselves the helpless of the situation, it takes away from our urge to empathise when seeing it upon a screen. Even when considering film adaptation in a general sense, the fact that there are so many people involved in creating a film again takes away some autonomy of the audience/reader; the different roles of everyone
Romance has four traits that can be found in the novel “Le Morte D’Arthur” and in the movie King Arthur. They share the same elements of love and honor, and the quests that lead up to king’s epic battle. The movie shows more of the historical side of Arthur, their struggle. Most of the stories involving King Arthur are primarily fiction; however, there remains the possibility that a character called Arthur may have actually exists. Arthur is the greatest of British literary heroes although little is known about the real person.
Fellini’s Departure from Neo-realism In my opinion, the films, “Nights of Cabiria” and “La Dolce Vita” to be the best films our class have seen so far. It left me in awe and absolutely stunned. They were both beautifully produced, presented well and unmistakably Fellini fims “La Dolce Vita” gives us glimpse of a filmmaker that has moved far neo-realist his roots. The “Nights of Cabiria” had many more neo-realist elements than “La Dolce Vita” and therefore was a departure from neo-realism. “Nights of Cabiria” had some of the classic elements of neo-realism showing Cabria’s poor and broken troubles, she is just an ordinary person and throughout the movie you are just simply looking into her life, also there is a feel of onset location.
Final Fantasy XIII Gameplay Interface Analysis The videogame community has struggled for decades to establish itself as a legitimate media for art. In order to gain credibility, many games attempt to showcase devices borrowed from other media types through a unique virtual lens. The Final Fantasy series by Square Enix is a clear example of the use of literary devices within a videogame. Square Enix has always used the device of interactive storytelling to set their game interface aside from others. Instead of focusing purely on the graphics or the gameplay (although the series excels in both), the games are best recognized for their elaborate plots and substantial characters.
