However, I was impressed overall with the directing of Smiths. He got the cast to really understand the underpinnings of Miller's great tirade against those who stifle free thought, and drew the key scenes to a good emotional climax. The lighting was adequate; the set design was simple but effective; the staging didn't add much to the play, but it didn't detract either. My main gripe about the production design centers on their programs (absolutely, terribly unprofessional) and the pixilated images used in place of backdrops (projected against a screen) In my opinion that was a great idea, but it was very poorly executed. Ultimately, a play succeeds because of the strength of its story not its stage dressing.
For example he was stuck in a different reality and he knew what to do and never panicked, and eventually got out because of his smarts. Crash was the best movie because the writing could be related to life very easily for certain types of people. The acting in the movie was also incredible. The class most likely agrees with me because of how real the acting was. The movie was nominated for many awards proving how great it was.
The film writers, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, supposedly based this film loosely on their personal experiences during their own awkward teenage years. Though I’m not sure how true this actually is, the film is excellently written. There is sensitivity in superbad that other teen movies such as American Pie don’t achieve, this gives the film heart. This is also the main reason that Superbad works so well, it gets away with being immature and crude by using well-written and well-acted parts to create a sense of vulnerability and loveable geeky awkwardness in the three main characters, who constantly attempt to appear cool and confident, particularly around their high school crushes, desperately fabricating stories, with hilarious
Robrigado 1 Matt Robrigado English 1A Professor Piluso 12 September 2012 The Game of Life Old original movies are not always boring to watch. Compared to the movies made today for people to watch which contain lots of foul language, violence, and sex, The Sandlot contains many important life values and morals such as friendship, teamwork and perseverance. The classic film The Sandlot is a great movie to watch because of its comical dialogue, incredible cast, superior theme of friendship, and the mindset to never give up at what anything no matter what the cost is. One reason why The Sandlot engages who is viewing it is because all of its humorous dialogue. This classic movie is filled with dialogue that can make any young
I enjoyed the casting choices because the actors and scenery joined to convey a part of the movies theme. It discussed issues that were amenable. As stated in our text by Edward G. Robinson, “an audience identifies with the actors of flesh and blood and heartbeat, as no reader or beholder can identify with even the most artful paragraphs in books or the most inspiring paintings. There, says the watcher, but for some small difference in time or costume or inflections or gait, go I …. And so, the actor becomes a catalyst; he or she brings ignition that spark in every human being that longs for the miracle of transformation”.
It kept the reality about everything real, no sugar coating anything. There was a lot of humor and modesty. The kids gave their own real opinion of the competition as well as their opinion of life and their surroundings. Such as, how kids would grow up if their parents were divorced, or if the parents didn’t care the kids would be out doing drugs and that is something they don’t want to do. From my opinion this movie over a whole was great.
It is very reliable as Catherine would have had no reason to lie and would have an accurate impression of Henry VII as she was close to him. Because of this, Henry VIII tried to be different from his father to win over his people and to be known as a better king. Henry VIII was a renaissance king. He did not care about saving money and being in control all of the time. Henry VIII liked to have fun.
He has a dry sense of humor and pokes fun at people very stealthily and they may not notice and neither may you. One of his key phrases is “I don’t stick my neck out for anyone”. His actions and choices in the beginning of the movie mainly benefit him, and the end of the movie his actions benefit others greatly and he needs to sacrifice for them to happen. His strength is his ability to manipulate people and to do things for him. His main weakness is his love for Ilse and what he will do for her, or to be with her.
This line really makes one think. Throughout the movie, Scar talks just as gracefully as the other royals, but his actions show that he is not a trustworthy character. Just because someone looks the part, doesn’t necessarily mean that they have it. And just because someone may not look the part, doesn’t mean that they can’t be it. Scar uses this concept to his advantage to complete his dasterdly deeds throughout the
It flowed perfectly between lines. I didn’t notice once him messing up his lines or anything. If so, he must have hid it very well from the audience because there was no commotion there except for the fact of his hilarious acting. My number one compliment for him vocally would be the way his voice and character fit perfectly. His skittish voice on certain acts
