Putt, putt, putt, vroom….! When the loud boat engine finally starts up it is like music to my ears. My dad yells “ready to go,” and my friend and I leap onto the tube and hear the water smack against the hard rubber. Slowly at first then the boat starts to go faster and faster; the engine gets louder and louder. Once we are off, all I can hear is the muffled engine under the surface, the water splashing up beside us and the screams and laughter of my friend and me.
BOOK REVIEW: Spike Lee Film: 14 SYNOPSIS: German authors Gunnar Landsgesell and Andreas Ungerbock's tome SPIKE LEE FILM: 14 is a comprehensive, handsome-looking read featuring an interesting and extensive profile on the confrontational and immensely talented American filmmaker Spike Lee and his brand of cinema. The text is written in the German language but the contents are universally received as the scribers serve up a hearty menu of Lee's filmography that includes his cinematic works from 1986's She's Gotta Have It to 2006's Inside Man. Among the film critics/film scholars that contribute their critiques to Landsgesell and Ungerbock's introspective movie book is well-known Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago-based Roger Ebert (he penned the 2004 review She Hate Me). Besides the notable contribution from Ebert, Landsgesell and Ungerbock tap the services from other revered American and European sources that serve up Lee's films in thorough, thought-provoking compositions. In this 304-page entertainment book, there is other subject matter to consider besides the in-depth reviews of the contributors' written material.
This scene takes place about an hour into the film. The director’s intention with this scene was to show the second task Ofelia had to complete and to set up the conflict between Ofelia and the underworld. This film was made in 2006, where special effects were high tech and very realistic. This is reflected in the film and how heavily it relies on fantasy effects such as fairies and the Pale Man. It is highly regarded for its fantastic special affects use, winning an Academy Award for “Best Achievement in Makeup” among others.
Also the camera work was well put together through all the action scenes ecspecially at the beginning with the big boulder. The best special effects scene was when Indiana Jones and the Nazi were fighting and the Nazi got hit by a plane propelar. My overall reaction to the film is good, I enjoyed the movie, it had a very good plot to it and moved along well. I would definetly recommend this movie to teens for the action and
This movie has a great story line that is based on a true story that really went on not too long ago. This movie has very good acting that makes you really feel like you are inside the movie and shows you what really went on in the story. Some of the actors who really play a great part are Dwayne ‘’The Rock’’ Johnson and Xzibit who both play major roles as the coaches of the football team. Some other of the actors who really play a part in this movie are Michael Pagan, Jake Yorker, Setu Tase, and many other actors that all play important parts in the movie. The story of the movie is mainly about a kid named Willie Weathers a gang banger that gets in trouble by making some wrong decisions and ends up in the correctional prison where the main part of the movie begins.
Randall Wallace’s actors were superb in the film. I thought Randall Wallace had a great selection of actors in the film therefore having a great film. Mel Gibson plays as the brave leader Lieutenant Hal Moore. Madeleine Stowe acted as Julia Moore who takes a role as Hal Moore’s wife. The acting amazed me, especially Jimmy Nakayama (Brian Tee) who gets severely burnt by a bomb.
The cameos last only a few seconds, sometimes barely noticeable, like walking along a train platform, but added a very original element. He made cameos in 39 of his 52 surviving films. ‘The Birds’, ‘North by Northwest’, ‘Rear Window’, ‘Dial M for Murder’, ‘To Catch a Thief’ and ‘The 39 Steps ’are seen as some of his best movies because of their suspense and mystery, while ‘Psycho’ is considered one of the most classic old horror thrillers . It’s due to these movies that he is seen as one of the cinema’s most significant
So in a musical film eruption of a song in the middle of the narrative is believable and is accepted by the audiences but it would be highly unacceptable in the horror, war or a thriller movie. Same goes with the narrative of a war film, there has to be a war sequence in the movie and the entire movie will be based on a war. Kill Bill mixes number of different and distinct genres in each of the chapters. It shows a glorious smorgasbord of Spaghetti Western, Japanese Samurai
It is one of my personal favorite films because of its simple, but provoking storyline, wich director Frank Darabont managed to pull off in a classic style, making it feel like a timeless piece of cinematography. In addition to this, I believe the acting is great, particulary Morgan Freeman, who seems to ass an impeccable degree of realism to his character ‘Red’. I think we should watch it in our English class because it is a film that everybody should see at least once in their live, because it is highly recommended by various polls
