Crop And Save
This film, I do have to say I loved. I am a fan of horror movies and to finally see and understand the dictionary movie to all other scary movies I love is amazing. The version without the score probably is the better version. I only saw the version without the score however. The silence definitely empowered the power that was set in the scenes. It also helped empower and emphasize the power and control one man can have over an individual, his town, and his world. Although some characters were just plain weird, it didn't take away from the fact that this movie is a masterpiece and a set bar as to what a scary should look, feel, sound, and anything else it could give off to the audience.
Double Indemnity (1944)
Uh Oh! Double The Trouble
This film is very interesting. In certain ways it reminds me of the story between the infamous Bonnie and Clyde, but this was way before those two rebels. This film actually seemed based off of real life events. But to be more specific, it actually was based off of a real life scandal between two people who had an affair. Which made it even more interesting to watch. The whole movie was a filmnoir. Which is my favorite. So this film had a lot of very low lights when needed and very dark, long shadows where they were supposed to be. It was a film that was put together in a great way. And to think this all happened at a local insurance office. Just imagine what could happen anywhere else.
Which Chinatown Are YOU Talking About?
getting ready to watch this movie, I was excited to see how this could go about. I wasn't sure if I'd like the film too much or maybe not at all. I was completely awed. The movie is the extreme mystery. The fact that it ends up as a twist is very powerful. The beautiful scenery of the water was a great way to get a better understanding of Los Angeles. I have seen movies like this, but then again I haven't. So was this a reference movie? It could possibly be one, I am sure. Needless to say, the camera work and the shots of the film were great. I loved the whole storyline of the film. It kept me entertained and kept me wondering where something was gong to pop up and when something else out of the ordinary would pop up.
Citizen Kane (1941)
This film is art! The combination of photography, metaphors, dialog, acting, and art bring together a great film. The movie emphasized power a lot. Power was emphasized when he trashed the room. And also the scene of the fireplace in his big mansion. The power that he had in the city, state, and the world was emphasized in that scene. The fact that he died saying the one word that meant so much to him, but meant nothing to the people around him (or who once thought they knew him) struck a sense of empowerment. The camera-work that was done in this film was very impressive. The dark shadows on the reporter, to have the audience know that even though the reporter was one of the main characters, he wasn't as important as Mr. Kane. That went for all the characters in that film. The production really emphasized the power that each character held. It was not meant to get mixed up nor confused.
The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
Surprisingly, I enjoyed this film. Not only was the plot intriguing but the characters were believable. The film gave a very realistic point of view on the issues that came along with the depression. Not many viewers, nor myself can relate to this issue or even feel what they might have felt. The movie created a portrait for us to see as it goes through the trails this family has to battle. The costumes in this movie not only helped gave us a visual on what the 30's were like; it allowed us to forget about the reality we currently are in. Again, this is the genius of film making. All of these things play an important role in the tone for the movie. I believe the props and the setting played the most important part in this film.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
This movie has so much substance to it( literally)! The music in this film is amazing. There is definitely a modern feel to it. The fact that the film reaches out to so many different types of people is astounding. Being able to relate to a film is one of the very most important ingredients when it comes to film making. I loved the rawness of the directing and producing. This film did a great job at capturing the lifestyle and works of this time period. The costumes took the film to the next level. The actors portrayed their characters amazingly. Uma Therman is at her best in this film.I love how dance is incorporated in the film slightly. This made the film seem more realistic and relate-able to its audience. The scene where Therman and Travolta are dancing is an unforgettable scene for many.
Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
I love this movie! I can honestly watch it over and over again. This film has great photography and great dialog. The costumes really allow the audience's imagination to flow towards the time period being portrayed. The film gives an adrenaline rush that is so natural; it takes you back a bit. I feel as though many people like this film because it is not realistic, it is sort of fantasy.However, the costumes and the simplistic nature of the film itself allows for audiences to forget that it is indeed fantasy. sooner before later, you are caught on the ride. You forget about the realism and your mind is stimulated off of the thoughts of something like this actually happening. The fact that love is thrown in the mix creates for an immediate attention grabber. This movie incorporates love and tons of action and violence. this captures not only women but men as well. great flick!
Okay, so I am obsessed with horror films. Even though this film is quite old and the effects are a bit dated. I would definitely have to say that this horror flick is way better than some out in theaters today! The music went well with the scenes. There were a great deal of lighting and contrasting used to create a sort of eerie feel. The plot was outrageous but not too far fetch. What made this film so great is that it is believable. All the incidents that happen in the film are things are not fantasy. The actors played their characters very well. Their words, feelings and emotions they portrayed felt authentic. The editing allowed for discontinuity during murder scenes, where certain images were a bit choppy. Overall , I give this film an A.
Do the Right Thing (1989)
Exuberates A Powerful Message
I enjoyed this movie very much. It showcased a host of different messages. The messages were not only geared to the youth, but was geared towards everyone. The message of hope, the message of anti-racism, the message of freedom, the message of hate, the message of self-hate, the message of power, the message of money and the message of respect, all ties in to the film magically. I believe simplistic art portrays the best beauty of all. This film may seem very simplistic, however the content, the form and the overall production really captures the fruits of issues we have in our society( even up until this day). The lighting and editing really stood out in the film making of this project. Spike really created an artful masterpiece!
The Graduate (1967)
I loved this movie. It was the perfect blend of comedy, drama,love and action. The overall plot was very intriguing. I feel like everyone has been in the main characters shoes before( not knowing exactly what you want to do with your life). The theme was very relate-able. I feel as though everyone had a specific character that they could some how relate to. The music in this film was something that stood out to me. It was a bit more modern. I adored the fact that they not only made this movie a drama. But they also fit a lot of comedy into the film. I feel as though Dustin Hoffman played the role of a personality actor. I felt like I've seen the same persona played in other films he has starred in as well.
