In the original film (Hitchcock) the old dark and colorless film, the creep music provide the viewers an idea that something wicked is about to happen. Therefore again both directors did provide enough action to carry over to each scene. In the remake the casting was truly wrong; For instance the infamous character Norman Bates, the psychopathic motel owner was played by fast talking, macho man Vince Vaughn. In the remake the Norman appears to be more of a sexual predator, whom would actually please himself as he watch Marion through a peephole in the shower scene; which gives the audience a different point of view about this film and van sant character Norman. However in the original version Anthony Perkins plays Norman Bates, who truly fit the character with calmer attitude, and good boy looks as Norman.
By definition an honorable suicide is a process whereby a person commits suicide to escape the shame of an immoral action. In my opinion, the issue was the controversial incest aspect of remaking the film. American film goers gravitate towards action packed thrillers, horror or murder films, and on some occasions success is found in gore or torture pieces. Lee’s remake of South Korean and Japanese Classic don’t appeal to our society’s ideology. Consanguinity is the challenge and key issue that imitates the entire plot of the film.
Reading further into Mr. King’s essay, I was intrigued by the notion that a horror movie might actually have a role to play in civilized society. As Mr. King puts it, “like a sick joke, [the mythic horror movie] has a dirty job to do.” It allows us to fantasize, lets our basic instincts free and “appeals to all that is worst
Everyone assumes that directors and writers decide what happens in a movie, but many times the movie star is the most powerful person involved with the project. For instance, when Jim Carrey wanted to make a movie about his favorite number, The Number 23 hit theaters across the country. A much more entertaining abuse of this star power occurs when huge movie stars decide they look awesome doing something, and proceed to force that something into every movie they make. For instance ... #5. Tom Hanks' Career is a Urinary Morality Play Most movie stars use their careers to build up enough credibility to avoid urinating onscreen.
However in contrast to Walton, Victor’s loneliness occurs partially from the fact that he has allowed his studies “to weaken his affection and his taste for the simpler pleasures of life” (56)and as such have pushed away everybody who means something to him. In addition to this though both characters loneliness lies greatly on the fact that they are
So even if he somehow avoids his fate, and still remains king, he will not be truly happy without the companionship of his wife. These emotions are also evident in the line, “Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player / That struts and frets his hour upon the stage / And then is heard no more.” (5.5.26-28). When he says, “it is a tale / Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury / Signifying nothing.” (5.5.28-30), he admits that life is meaningless, and expresses that he is in despair and hopeless to living. Ultimately, Lady Macbeth’s death was justifiable because it brings conclusion to the consequences of actions leading to guilt: “All of our yesterdays have lighted fools / The way to dusty death.” (5.5.24-25), meaning that the foolish actions done in the past has only led to
I didn’t realize it until I saw the movie version of the play how big of an idiot he is. His character was meant to seem as if anyone could be a night watchman. The title in itself is ironic because Dogberry is just a drunken man who sleeps on his job. Nothing he says makes sense and he doesn’t even do his job correctly. You can tell that nobody takes them seriously, especially when Leonato shows no sign of gratefulness that he has captured two men by simply saying “go drink some wine” (Shakespeare 46) As we look into the theories of comedy for the play, it is clear that an option is Freud’s theory.
Dial M for Murder/Psycho Comparison What do you get when you take everyday life and turn it 180 degrees? You get a Hitchcock film. Alfred Hitchcock has long been known for his fright inducing and thrilling movies. Three of his classic movies are “Dial M for Murder,” “The Birds,” and “Psycho.” Camera angles, music, and attention to detail dominated the psyche while watching these movies. Although these movies are all very closely related in many ways, as well as very different, there are many more similarities in “Psycho” and “Dial M for Murder.” “Dial M for Murder” takes the classic story of a gold digging spouse looking for their cut and adds a very interesting, and frightening, twist.
The bakery was his place of desolation because he did not like the interaction with people. The narrator in “Cathedral” was not enthused when he learned that a blind friend of his wife named Robert was spending the night with them. His whole concept about a blind person he thought came from the movies. He thought that a blind person would have to solely depend on other people for help. His wife had a very good relationship with Robert and they were able to communicate with each other although he could not see.
Why Do People Love Horror Movies? For years people have been scared senseless by horror movies, yet we continue to watch them. Horror movies are extremely popular throughout society today. But what is it about a good scary movie that makes us decide to go to the movies and see the new “Friday the 13th” movie and not “When Harry Met Sally?” Maybe it’s the rather eventful way a horror movie portrays the night life, or the feeling you get in your chest when you clearly know someone is about to die, or even the raw sex appeal a horror movie depicts to both men and women. The night life portrayed in a horror movie is definitely more lively than that of the life many of us live every day.
