The date and time appear on the screen leading you to think that they are important almost as if it is a police re-construction as they are trying to solve a crime. The camera Goes from an extreme long shot to a window and peeps through to a close up free flowing through the room showing and Janet Leigh and her co-star in what would have been considered a shocking scene, her in a bra and petticoat having an affair with a married man. The target audience of this film would be horror and suspense. Hitchcock was himself a household name at this time and also had many strategies to get audiences into the theatre for instance
After Lennie was shot the guys show up and Curly and Carlson congratulate him, but in the movie it just ends right after George shoots Lennie. There were many differences between all the characters described in this story. The book displayed the relationship between George and Curley to be full of hatred. During the movie there was not much hatred displayed in the relationship between George and Curley, it just seemed like they did not get along very well but no hatred. Lennie was described as a huge monster in the book, so the thought was that he was completely out of the ordinary, but when I watched the movie Lennie was just big but he was not out of the ordinary.
A thriller is a show filled with anticipation, tension, and excitement. Such shows would include Lost and 24. Both shows will leave audiences at the edge of thier seat and wanting more by the end of each episode. It is almost as if the characters are our best friends, and we are going through the adventure with them. A horror show will create an uneasy, eerie atmosphere and is intended to frighten watchers.
Violence In CSI: Is It Really Bad? The popular television show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has often been criticized for portraying too much violence; however the violence is what draws in the crowds of people watching. Many authors of journals have also criticized the series, along with the two spin-offs, CSI: New York and CSI: Miami, for not depicting the job of the investigators correctly. For example, Amy Goehner writes in her article, “Where CSI: Meets Real Law and Order” that to use the DNA analysis on every case, as they do in CSI would cost over $10,000 each time, and most crime labs not only have that much money to spend, but they don’t have the time to find all the probable DNA evidence on every case. Although CSI has its share of controversy, it is liked due to the nature of the program, with its depiction of gore and violence.
Although both movies are very similar, they are very different because as the time moves from the 1950s to 2000s, our culture has transformed therefore, the movies has transformed along with it. One thing in particular that has transformed in our society that is a noticeable difference between both movies is violence and crime. Our society had become more dangerous over the 53 years span among each movie. In this paper, I will discuss how the movies, Rear Window, and Disturbia have depicted our culture and how crime and violence in general has become extremely problematic as the times move forward. Before I establish how Rear Window and Disturbia depicts our society and how it has gotten dangerous over the course of 53 years, here is a brief overview of what both movies were about that made them different.
As I look down the list of movies to watch to write this paper I realized I had recently seen a movie titled Crash that embodied a lot of stereotypes that are constantly a problem in our country today. I had been meaning to watch this movie because of its great reviews it had received. The title of the movie Crash could not have been more perfectly placed. In America we found ourselves in the most culturally mixed Country, and with that are sure to bring differences and racism. Like a car crash we are accidently placed in situations everyday that bring out our own stereotypes towards others that we sometimes do not even realize.
[pic] MASS SHOOTINGS Mass shooting for the most part is nothing new in our society, but in the United States, it has unfortunately become a disturbing trend that seems to be on the rise. The vicious killers are all violent, brutal monsters and have an abnormal urge to kill. For whatever reason, they may choose to use a weapon and kill people that they feel are responsible for their problem. They may kill total strangers in a bid to get even with whomever or whatever they feel wronged them. Whatever their reason, they are usually cooperative without remorse if they survive the episode.
Although horror movies can be psychotic, gory, and may sometimes give creative ideas to criminals; criminals committed heinous crimes before the television was even invented. The history of violent crimes and horror films show how violence has been influential to horror films, but does not make a connection with horror films increasing violent behavior. The first actual murder can date back to about 4,000 B.C. when Cain murdered his brother Able (Wikipedia.com). Where did Cain get this idea from?
After you have watched CSI, you tend to think Forensic Science is easy and could possibly be a fun career. The audience doesn’t understand how far away the television show is from reality and so they then start to make conclusions about Forensic Science. Jurors in courtrooms are frequently comparing what is happening in the courtroom to shows like CSI, causing many disruptions throughout the trial. One of the most popular reasons jurors disrupt the courtroom is to point out there is not enough evidence, remembering how evidence is constantly used on CSI. The
From this, I determined if there was any relation in how the movies made them feel and whether or not they’d want to repeat the experience. “I think we crave horror movies because somewhere deep down, we all want to see people get run through with pointy sticks and be able to not feel guilty for enjoying it. We all know it’s just acting,” said one person. He enjoyed horror movies because of this gory fact. At times, he said, it “made his blood boil.” Even though watching them made him feel this way, he still liked watching horror movies.
