The very same type of ending was seen when Holden recalled the movie he watched about the Englishman who had lost his memory and his response to it. He describes the movie as, “don’t see it if you don’t want to puke all over yourself” (138). His response to the movie most likely would have been because of how Holden had believed that Allie was somehow going to get through a terrible situation, which was clearly explained in the movie that Holden watched, but since Allie did
But what does Roger Ebert say about Casablanca? On his webpage he says: “If we identify strongly with the characters in some movies, then it is no mystery that ‘Casablanca’ is one of the most popular films ever made. It is about a man and a woman who are in love, and who sacrifice love for a higher purpose.” He goes on to say that
As director the nuances of his genius are processed through many stages to reach an elite level of cinema very few have had the privilege to ascertain. Morgan Freeman describes the film as "a film with heart." However true, the drama is the main component of the film as it provides the majority of tension and ultimately the resolution. With the screenplay written and directed by the same person he was granted complete creative control over the characters first created by Steven King. Darabont’s fictional retrospective provides much drama but not without astounding the audience with such precision and prowess only he could complete.
Some of his most acclaimed work has been from movies that were based on true stories. When Washington does these real life stories he finds characters that have over come many difficulties in their lives and end up winning. So by Washington starring in roles where he always ends up a winner he is creating an image in the viewers mind that he is a winner. When the audience leaves the movie they remember what great things Washington did to turn out the way he did. Many people have a hard time separating movies from the real world and some people assume the character is that person in real life Denzel Washington is the first African American male to win an Academy Award for the Best Male Actor category.
Spielberg moves us, and increasingly it’s the suspect power of the work of art that has become his real subject” (Newton). Spielberg was tugging at the movie watchers heartstrings by creating this unlikely friendship and having the audience feel what the characters are feeling. Drama, sci-fi-, and action was all rolled into one family blockbuster. Not only did he re-create the genre, but his sci-fi films are still referenced today. “‘Jurassic Park’ became a huge box office hit, so many younger moviegoers aren’t familiar with it.
She tales out anger on me because she knows I will take it and not blame her but blame the disese. I respect you and you mother for being there for your brother and glad he is doing so good. Anonymous (visit their site) We watched this movie last night and we LOVED it. It was so touching and a true testament to the power of a
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 Great Escape” is a fantastic movie. It is an entertaining and exciting film with full action that shows bravery, courage and determination. It has a great cast and it’s beautifully made. “The Great Escape” shows a great technical description of the escape process during nearly the end of WWII and over the course of almost three hours, it allows the opportunity to set up the characters and give us a chance to get to know each one of them. And with that, we come to care about these people and desperately want the to succeed.
I think that anything from a good plot to a great chemistry on camera makes a movie enjoyable to me. When a film can put together the right mixture of action, drama, great acting, and realism, I am usually it's biggest promoter. Let me tell you what makes a film un-enjoyable. One of my biggest issues with films today involves realism, or lack thereof. I cannot stand it when the guy shoots a car and it blows sky high – lifting ten feet off the ground or flipping over.
“The World’s Fastest Indian” (2005) is an insightful movie directed by the world renowned director, Roger Donaldson. A character I enjoyed in this film was Burt Munro. I enjoyed this character because of his high, uplifting spirit of determinat ion. Burt Munro is important because he reveals the ideas of ‘Manawanui (Perseverance),’ ‘Realising Your Dreams’ and ‘Overcoming Obstacles.’ These ideas are seen through the film techniques: dialogue, lighting and types of camera shots and angles. Burt Munro is a character I enjoyed because of his total dedication and wholeheartedness towards his dreams, living a day at a time.
