- Period Settings Tied to Anderson’s nostalgia, the period backdrops of all his films are significant enough that they demand individual attention. In perhaps the ultimate display of his personal devotion to nostalgia, Anderson’s films all take place in eras that occur prior to the present. Or at least they all seem to; films like Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, and The Royal Tenenbaums are practically modern compared to his latter day efforts. But even when he doesn’t directly acknowledge the time period (as with Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, for example), there’s a sheen of antiquity to all of his films. Try imagining a Wes Anderson movie set in 2014; it’s pretty hard to picture.
300 Final Film Review 300 is by far the best comic book based movie I have evened seen But what really makes this movie stand out from all of the other movies is the amazing cinematography that this movie has. Larry Fong has proven that a brilliant Director of Photography can turn any boring tale into something great and interesting. Now, the tale isn’t boring. Not by a long shot. But we’ve seen and heard the same tale a lot before.
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.
Beowulf is a Nordic tale from northern Europe, dating back over 1,000 years. Gilgamesh on the other hand, is an ancient Babylonian legend from over 4,000 years ago. Both of these epics set the basic ideals of legendary quests, heroes and gods, all while maintaining their real life cultures and mindsets. Although both are old legends, the themes between them vary significantly. It is important to compare their societies, relationships with Gods and demons, and heroic ideals.
His natural fear of death overcomes his sense of human morality, which also suggests breaking a code of chivalry. When Lord Bertilak returns home from his hunting trip, Gawain does not reveal the girdle to his host but, instead, hides it, what from Bertilak’s point of view is breaking the agreement to return anything given to him while his host is away. However, Gawain’s point of view on this particular situation is different at first. Gawain is trying to operate under the laws of chivalry which, evidently, have rules that can contradict each other. In the story, Gawain finds himself torn between doing what a damsel asks (accepting the girdle) and keeping his promise.
Then Han Solo, who is played by Harrison Ford, is the knight in shining armor and then we have Vader played by David Prowse, who is the evil one that needs to be dealt with. Then of course the young Jedi in training is Luke Skywalker played by Mark Hamill. Usually with every fairytale there is a happy ending. The only ending viewers get is that the Empire has been neutralize and has to be dealt with later on. This is how we had the saga of “Star Wars” creation.
Accepting the fact that one day, we all must face our own death is part of being human. By seeking immortality Gilgamesh tries to escape the fact that he is human, in response he is society rejects him. The barmaid, Siduri, is scared of Gilgamesh when he first knocks on the tavern door. When Gilgamesh gets a hold of the plant that will give him his youth back, the serpent takes it away from him. Utnapishtim tells Gilgamesh to wash himself after at the end of his failed quest, he once again joins society.
Star Wars vs. The Odyssey A galaxy far, far away and the land of Ithaca are closer than you may think. Star Wars IV: A New Hope follows a group of freedom fighters, known as the Rebel Alliance, as they plan to destroy the powerful Death Star space station created by the evil Galactic Empire. It also follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, protecting and saving himself and others all along the way. The Odyssey is about a man named Odysseus and his adventure in returning home from the Trojan War after being gone for 20 years.
Both of these expeditions result in character development and an over-all renewal of the individual as well as the kingdom of Ithaca. On the other hand, the external aspect of navigation, is illustrated using the most well-known medium of that time, mythology, and the ancient Grecian’s means of navigation. For example, in reference to Telemachus’ voyage, The Odyssey reads, I’ll say no more. The gods know how things stand and so do
