Film Noir - Double Indemnity Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity is almost like a basic outline for the Film Noir genre.

Other genres can be based nearly anywhere and still create the same impression, but with the use of equal lighting on the setting and characters the impression of Film Noir is made. The many Film Noir conventions through characters is seen in Double Indemnity.

Alexis Fuller Fuller 1 Instructor: Jeff Evans ENG 226 March 13, 2012 The True Meaning Behind District 9 The film District 9, directed by Neil Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson, is filled with realistic visual effects, gore, and fast-paced action. When watching this film, the viewer could simply enjoy these aspects and not interpret a deeper meaning, but this would require not having any knowledge on South African history. The film is clearly a metaphor for apartheid, and is imprinted throughout the entire movie. The metaphor created depth and meaning for the film through its plot, vulgar images, and characters. The apartheid metaphor in District 9 is clear due to the small allegories the film makes before it even starts, the racial acts that take place, the form in which the faux documentary presents the nature of the aliens, and the way Native Africans are shown as the main source of crime in the community.

A Beautiful Mind The story of John Nash’s life long struggle with schizophrenia and the excellent telling of that story were very compelling to me. I was drawn into the narrative and its content to the point it was very difficult for me to “dissect” the movie down to its component form. It was only in a second and a third viewing (at 2x speed with audio off) that I was able to note the cinematic language of lighting, camera angles, camera movement, and point of view. I was drawn into the movie by the use of pattern and the resulting expectation. Initially, I completely bought into the characters that turned out to be creations of Nash’s mind.
“All Directors have their own unique style”. Tim Burton is a great director and like most great directors, Burton has his own unique style. His style is unusual, strange, and gothic. Tim Burton like’s to explore the living and the dead in a lot of his moves and he also likes to explore reality vs madness in his film through different personalities, gothic themes, colour and symbolism. Colour is used very well in Tim Burton’s films for example in sleepy hollow (1999) it is a very dark film, not just in terms of themes but also in the images and shots themselves.
But long ago violent games were invented based on violent movies so if someone says it causes aggression then some movies in the world cause aggression too. Violent video games also improve your memory due to finding attacks that work best and you try harder to remember them. They also help you with map work coordinates, self positioning, knowing your surroundings and remembering that you have been in this certain place before. So I think people have their own opinions but I think I have proved a few good points and the violent games were created by people who were aggressive from the start. Everyone deals with stress and frustrations differently.
