The performance of Jim Carrey was outstanding as the introverted withdrawn Joel; One of his best performances so far. Kate Winslet pulled it off beautifully, as always, as the impulsive, vibrant, and outgoing Clementine and her personality was emphasized by her constantly-changing bright hair color. But I think it’s a bit of a cliché for an introverted shy withdrawn guy to fall in love with an impulsive outgoing girl and for her to get him out of his bubble. The movie is a bit complicated and confusing when you see it for the first time because of the non-chronological (non-linear) order of the story but I think it serves the story very well. It emphasizes Joel’s state of mind and his confusion, struggling, and fear.
The 1990s brings yet another film of intelligence that outshine the majority of film released during the 21st century. “Pleasantville” directed by Gary Ross is another perfect example of cinematic boom in the 1990s that delivered movies like “The Shawshank Redemption” and “Pulp Fiction”. At first glance the movie seems like another comedy where the main characters travel to a fantasyland just like “Wizard of Oz”. However, the movie turns out to have more serious intensions than most comedy fantasy, by exploring various serious themes that relates to cultural issues from the 1950s. The main characters are twin teenagers.
Casting is one very important piece to the puzzle. The casting was genius; from the humorous chubby kid, to the small dorky kid nick-named "Smalls!" When making a movie the director has to create the movie in a way so that the viewer falls in love with each character. David M. Evans, the director, develops each character throughout the movie. His methods work because of three techniques; humor appeal, inspiration occurrences, and sympathy.
The characters of Seinfeld have such great chemistry that we love to watch them, and feel like a part of it. A major flaw with many sitcoms is when the non-main characters get their own plot lines and viewers must endure them while waiting to get to the real meat of the show. Each of the characters of Seinfeld has an equal and valuable role and because of this, none of the sub-plots ever seem boring. The sitcom is rated PG, with mild sexual references, and infrequent course language, therefore would be suitable for viewing between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm to audiences consisting of young to middle age adults as they are closest to the age of the characters, hence would relate more with the situations and issues
In particular the word “ignorant” implies that teenagers are clueless and unintelligent. I consider this not only insulting, but also wrong. In my opinion teenagers are some of the brightest people in society especially when considering technology and digital media. In fact, from my own experience I’ve shared classes with some of the most intelligent
Tucci is incredibly creepy, weird, and awkward as Mr. Harvey and his interactions with people are some of the best parts of the movie. Ronan is also quite great as Susie Salmon, I feel she captured the innocence of the character but had the maturity to carry the movie. Peter Jackson did a great job casting actors. In the end I really enjoyed this movie. Jackson equally balanced the feelings of grief, anger, and even happiness and warmth into this movie.
Freshmen trying to escape from violent paddling, the star quarterback conforming to signing a pledge for the coaches, being caught by the parents trying to throw a party, and confronting bullies are just a few scenarios these teenagers deal with. The movies features a large ensemble cast, with no renown names. However much of the cast manages to portray their roles with great proficiency, with this movie potentially being their breakout role. From the sadistic bully Fred O'Bannion (Ben Affleck) who is continuously on the look out for freshman to paddle, to the smooth but creepy adult David Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) still socializing with high school kids, who is truly understood with his disturbing yet hilarious quote, “That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same
Many of today’s music videos are either less than imaginative or almost entirely unrelated to the song, the video for Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" is both fully realized and important. It’s a grim fairy tale about individuality, abuse, and suicide. The subject of the video is not glorified or sensationalized, rather, it is a way of pointing out an important issue that goes in depth in the causes and effects concerning its story. In the video, a young boy named Jeremy is at first shown to be a creative and, maybe a bit introverted, a somewhat happy and care-free kid. He is, in fact, an artist living in his own blissful little world.
Ben Nelson English 1000 November 6th 2012 Popularity, What is it made of? The short film “Are You Popular?” goes into detail on the ways to become popular, such as having a good personality, a good home, and good parents. The film breaks down popularity in the lives of high school students, how they react to it and how they handle it. Students saw a film on “mental hygiene” that is instructing them on how to act and what they should do in certain situations. For me looking at this film today, it seems silly and ridiculous.
The overly dramatic scenes, made to be serious, leave viewers scorning its awkwardness. The slow motion scenes along with the music, overemphasizes the spelling bee, leaving viewers doubting its authenticity. Although the supporting characters do a good job in showing Akeelah’s development, their feelings waver too quickly. What was once a mean, unbending character changes to an overly supportive one with a single event. Looking for a movie to
