E. Molinarez Prof. Valladares 04/27/2013 Critique of Badlands: Use of Sound I thought the music choice was very interesting for this film. In this movie Terrence Malick was wise in composing a demented understanding to the movie through the choice of his music. Malick understands how music works with images. In my opinion, he is a musical filmmaker like no other. Today sound is one of the richest sources of meaning in film and art (202).
The film was viewed by many because in the days we live in now, drugs are becoming more and more socially accepted by the public in general, as shown in how many people enjoyed the movie. On a different note in the movie, the music played in the movie is very appealing to me, it was very thought out on how the song would be placed in the moment to add the extra “hype” to the movie. Such as in the beginning of the film, to me, I feel like Electric Avenue was very well placed while Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) rode in his vehicle down the street. Pineapple Express by no means was an under budgeted film. When you take a look at all the effects that the movie had you can see that no money was wasted in any special effects such as a man being shot in the head, another person being shot in the stomach twice, gun fights, and etcetera.
Also the marketing campaign played a big part in this success, as It is the lifeblood that can either make or break a film. In this care; making the film. Skyfall along with every other film ever produced has 8 main parts to a marketing campaign: Posters; Trailers, TV spots, The Internet, PR and the press, Reviews, Track effectiveness of campaign and the Opening weekend. Firstly, posters are designed to see the genre and the concept pf the movie. They stand out as they are 2D, giving the audience time to read and really take in what the poster is telling them.
So instead of spending money on a movie to stay home, why not spend your money on the experience. Make a movie worthwhile, and make it more enjoyable. When I walk into a movie theater, I know that I will have a great time. Unlike sitting at home once again watching the same movie I watched last week. All of the movie theater employees do the work for you.
Background music in The Lord Of The Rings In this essay I want to talk to you about how the composer Howard Shore used the background music in The Lord Of The Rings and how it impacted the whole story. So during this essay I am going to talk about the music during the opening scene, adventure scenes, fight scenes, and the type of music that was used to describe the different types of characters. Let’s first start off by talking about the background music during the opening scene. The background music during the opening scene was very peaceful and relaxing. This peaceful and relaxing music gave you a sense that the place where the move was starting from was safe with no worries or evil surrounding it.
Great novel works filmed such like The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight Saga, indeed gain major success in markets. The process of transformation itself is called ecranization. This term is brought up by Bluestone (1957:5) which means the process of changing or transformation of a novel to a film. Some people may wonder on how a novel with hundreds pages could be transformed into a film with the duration only in hours. Even to finish a novel, people need to read it for days.

In some cases, music and movies inspire us as well. Lyrics of music can express the feeling of our mind. No matter what mood we have, we can invariably find a sort of music which fit our sensations at the moment.
