Often comedy movies make people laugh and always put people in a great mood. Films of this style have a main emphasis on one’s humor. Many funny movies such as Step Brothers, have a happy ending. Watching how certain people react to this type of movie is very interesting because everyone has a different reaction from one another. By people’s reactions it shows what kind of character they are in life.
I consider this scene the most suspenseful scene and after the city have been bombed, Montag and his new friends go in search of survivors to create a new and knowledge filled society. This created a rather satisfying ending because not only did I feel like the entire plot could actually happen in real life but that Montag`s personality would be to save those that he could and make a better life for them. Montag`s personality could be described as rash, inarticulate, self-obsessed, and too easily swayed. At times he is not even aware of why he does things, feeling that his
Gattaca was the best in terms of entertainment. It always kept me thinking about what is going to happen next. It had many twist in the plot that surprised me. The technology that was shown in the movie was very interesting to. Also, I enjoyed the entertainment from the character in the movie, Eugene, who a handicap that was virtually perfect.
Although both Preston Sturges and Frank Capra use imagery and comedy to deliver messages in their respective movies, Capra’s ability to express his ideas in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington regarding perseverance conveys a much more poignant message, despite Sturges’ more recognizable views about smiling through the pain in his movie, Sullivan’s Travels. The comedic elements of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Sullivan’s Travels add to the theme of each movie, subtly giving away major plot points. Both movies draw the audience in with the use of farce, such as when Sturges has Sullivan and his companion pushing each
He said, “I noticed that several of his punch lines had been unintelligible, and the audience had actually laughed at nothing but the cue of his hand slap.” (111) Martin felt that the audience was forced to laugh not because of the joke or because the man was being funny, but because of the cue that was provided. He strongly disliked this and wanted his comedy to be unpredictable and Rodriguez 2 more importantly memorable. This caused Martin to take a deeper look into his own act to make sure that it was set up in a way that the audience would laugh when they actually thought it was funny and not when they felt it was expected of them. He started doing odd unpredictable things to accomplish
Ray continues with his self-centered behavior once they run across something that he actually is interested in, the film crew. Ray is immediately fascinated and is quick to point out that watching the film is “the best bit of Bruges so far” (14). It is evident that Ray is looking for distractions from what they are really doing in Bruges. Ray isn’t ashamed to make known his disgust with Bruges and the fact that there is little in Bruges that is of interest to him. He is even more upset when he finds out that Harry sent him to Bruges as his “one last joyful memory” before dying (58).
Though effective, the restlessness of the camera becomes confusing, slicing the action into short, sharp images that can mystify rather than illuminate. Such fervent action so soon into the film is dizzying and unexpected. Luhrmann attracts the audience with his lively cinema style, speeding up the action to hype up the confrontation and the rivalry of the two families alongside an intense soundtrack of contemporary and popular music. As a contemporary film director, Luhrmann clearly values the younger audience who would usually only come into contact with Shakespeare in a school environment. This could explain the roaring energy of car engines and elaborate guns instead of horses and swords originally used in earlier productions.
There is a fine line between making fun of or mocking an individual with a mental disability and actually truthfully acting out how someone is with a real disability. Again, Hoffman does this very well and does not make the viewer feel as if he is making fun of anyone at all. Tom Cruise also plays his role very well, showing almost no remorse or sympathy towards his brother, Raymond, when they first meet. It takes a certain type of person to be able to act that out completely and make it believable. The entire topic of the movie is a very sensitive one, so Cruise was exceptional in making the viewer believe that he truly just wanted to get his half of the money from Raymond, and not build a relationship with him.
The easy way is often referred to as the wrong way and in some cases this is true, such as when Victor ignored his creation. By not facing his fears he was granted the absence of the monster, but only contributed to emanate problem just on the horizon. Victor’s tone of boastful arrogance soon turned to forlorn warning when he “Had finished and saw, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled his heart” (Shelley, 42). A fantastic example of the “easy way out” could be found in The Importance of Being Earnest. As Jack quickly finds out, lying about your true name to win the girl of your dreams can be successful, but also have consequences.
This is then all thrown out of the window if my spouse is pleading with me to watch something else. There are many things that make a film enjoyable. I am pretty easy when it comes to finding the good in most movies. I can love a movie just because it has that one scene or that one character that makes me laugh. I think that anything from a good plot to a great chemistry on camera makes a movie enjoyable to me.
