  • Police Academy Movies
    387 words
    Police Academy: Mission to Moscow (1994) 1/2 This movie succeeds on only one mission - the mission to suck. That's the only way to describe the seventh Police Academy movie. It sucks, so much so that previous entries in the series look like classics in comparison. I can't say I didn't expect it to be this bad, because once I saw the copy on the back of the box that read, "Kicking butt-ski! Making you laugh-ski! The Academy is back-ski!" I knew it wouldn't be up for any Oscars. If the most clever...
  • End Of Days The Millennium
    2,260 words
    End of Days The Millennium has had a wide variety of effects on our popular culture, which is evident by how the ideas about the millennium are encoded, perpetuated, and disseminated to a mass adiuence. A large proton of ideas about the millennium are circulated to the population through the use of movies and film. To this end, one movie, entitled "The End of Days", which was released in December 1999, is an excelent portal of the American reaction to the Millennium in general. "The End of Days"...
  • Written Story Hester
    789 words
    The short story, "Rocking-Horse Winner", and the movie based on it contrast considerably. When the written story has ended the movie continues with ideas, which may not come from the author. Three major differences of the two are: the mother, the father, and the ending. In the movie the mother, Hester, is portrayed as a loving and self-sacrificing person. While in the short story she is exposed to be a cold-hearted, and greedy person. Another instance where the short story and movie differ is th...
  • Average Black Males In Movies
    372 words
    Alanna Ganges Critical Thinking Honors Ms. McCue The Best Man One of the leading characters, Lance Sullivan, is portrayed very differently from the average black males in movies up until the end. Number one he is rich and he is a professional athlete. His income doesn't come from drug dealing or anything of that nature. Lance being an athlete in another perspective is also a common stereotype. Black males are commonly portrayed as drug dealers or killers unless they are rich, then they are profe...
  • Same Thing With The Boxer Friend
    362 words
    Power of One did not enjoy this movie. I thought it was poorly done, the camera shots were very basic, it was extremely predictable and "de ja vu". Since I am noLeonar Malt in and this assignment does not ask for a movie critique, i will say no further. If we take into factors what I already stated above, I guess you already know what I think of the ending. I will now expose my train of thoughts while answering the question. The two scenes that I found the most significant in this movie were th ...
  • Movie Contact
    394 words
    The movie Contact, based on the novel by Carl Sagan, is a fascinating journey through the human mind that attempts to answer the questions that humans have been asking since the dawn of time, 'Are we alone in the Universe?' ; Ellie Arroway (portrayed by Jodie Foster), the main character of the movie refers to the historic event upon which the movie is based, contact with an alien civilization, as one of the most significant events in human history, and rightly so. This film explores the religiou...
  • Good As The First Movie
    527 words
    After watching "Matrix Revolutions", I was disappointed. The movie lost its confusing yet interesting story line that the first one did very well, and there were so many characters that a lot of them got lost in the story and they wasted many good actors. When they return to the real world and the battle of the machines starts, it just goes on and on and on while Neo and Trinity disappear for a long time. The fight scenes just never cut away for such a long time that in the end it became annoyin...
  • Interesting Movie
    472 words
    The movie "The Ring" was a horror film that I found to be a major disappointment. The opening scene is probably one of the best in the whole movie, which in my opinion is pathetic. When the young girl in the beginning was killed seven days after watching the tape because her "heart stopped" after seeing Samara, I thought to myself "Wow, this may turn out to be an interesting movie", but they ruined it as soon as they showed the girl dead in the closet looking green and disfigured. I don't know w...
  • End Of The Movie
    340 words
    There were a few conclusions that Spike Lee intended us to make in the end of the movie. First of all, we learn that it was not about the money for Sal or Mookie. Sal built his pizzeria himself and that is really what he cared about. Mookie was upset that his community has been hurt even more. I think both of them realize that after what Sal said, the community would not have accepted him anymore, so Mookie might as well have thrown the garbage can through the window. As I said above, I think Mo...
  • Narrator And Tyler
    1,706 words
    The Audience Is Everything The times in which we live are geared toward the entertainment industry. If one is going to input something into society; make a speech, write a book, release a movie, a lot of thought must be put into whether or not it will gain approval from its audience. It is the job of many people to investigate what people want to see and hear, what they will like and what will bomb. The difference in the split ending of the movie Fight Club versus the book Fight Club exists beca...

    The Sixth Sense This past weekend, I went to see a movie at the near theater to my house. The Sixth Sense It is some kind of psychological movie that tell the story of a little boy name Cole Sear, Who has some kind of Supernatural abilities to see and co muni- cate with the dead.

  • Sixth Sense Many Movies
    998 words
    The Sixth Sense Many movies today do not have plots. They consist of computer-generated images, poor acting due to the non-realistic aspects of the movies, and relatively bad overall story lines. This is mostly due to the fact that the director is more concerned with the special effects. This can be seen in the movie Star Wars: Episode One: The Phantom Menace. Its story line was weak, and the acting was poor due to the fact that most of it was special effects. Don't get me wrong, the special eff...
  • Scottie's Problem With Vertigo
    400 words
    Vertigo is probably one of the more intriguing movies that I ve seen in a while, and almost as thought provoking as what team will win the NCAA tourney. In my opinion, it is truly a tragedy just because of the number of people that perished due to falling from a high place. The main protagonist, Scottie who was the cause of all of these deaths goes through the most trauma in the movie. He first ends the life of the policeman, by accident but then ends up destroying the lives of two others. The l...

    Shrek can be categorized as a romance and also as a parody of a romance. The movie contained elements of an actual romance as well as it-parodied characters and situations in a romance. Scatological humor was used religiously throughout the movie to help show the parodied side of the romance. Features of an actual romance in shrek include the lighthearted tone and chivalric love. The lighthearted tone was evident throughout shrek because in the end the bad guy's bad karma caught up with him and ...

    .".. After that my guess is you " ll never hear from him again... The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist and like that, he was gone". This quote comes from what I have, for years, considered the best movie I have ever seen, 'The Usual Suspects'. I first watched the movie about 4 years ago and have loved it ever since. But whenever someone asks me what my favorite movie is the question is always followed with another question, Why? , What makes this movi...

    Analysis Essay on Pulp Fiction The 1994 film Pulp Fiction may seem confusing and slow to some viewers. It is not until you fully understand the director's manipulations with time frames that you fully appreciate this film.

Even though this movie may seem violent and cold there is certain humor created...
