  • Example In The Third Harry Potter Movie
    1,187 words
    Movies have been around for as long as I can remember. They may come in many forms or video types, such as film on a reel, beta, VHS, DVDs and many more. Every successful movie tells a certain story, whether it be original, based on a true story, or based on a book. Whatever the case, the scripts are usually original and closely follow the plot they are based on, if there is one. More recently, unfortunately, movies based on novels are being made closer to the ideas of the screenwriter instead o...
  • Sex In A Teen Movie
    606 words
    Its seems as if American culture is obsessed with sex. From music videos to commercials to teen movies: one cannot turn on his television without seeing a scantily clad woman or two people engaging in some type of foreplay. Even on game shows there is commonly a female co-host who wears next to nothing. Moreover, besides a pornographic movie or a special on HBO, one can find more than enough sex in a teen movie. These films contain teenage sex symbols who cannot act more than the "common man". Y...

  • 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...

I think this is done to represent the increasing raci...

    This is a version of the classic Irish short story, "A Guest of the Nation", by Frank O'Connor, in which IRA men in the 1920's make the mistake of becoming friendly with the man they will have to kill. But the movie resolves this dilemma with an unexpected development. And then, the next time we see Fergus, he is in London, under a new name, working as a laborer on a construction site.

  • 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...
  • Good Actors And Realism
    377 words
    Motion pictures are designed to appeal to broad audiences. In order to do so, there are several elements that are required in order to capture audiences, and create an overall interest in the movie. Now, no movie will be able to appeal to everyone, because people prefer different types of movies, different actors, etc. But personally, the things I look for in a movie are a good plot, good acting, and realism. A good plot, to me, is one that gets my attention. Something that makes me want to watc...

  • Sergeant Raymond Shaw And Major Bennet Marco
    958 words
    "Raymond Shawn is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever met in my life". Evidently, this line is repeated periodically through the "The Manchurian Candidate". At first, the reader can believe that this description fits the character since he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his examples of courage in the Korean War. However, this contradicts the reality, which is that he is a murderer. This fact is compensated at the end of the movie when he realizes what he has d...

    . A person on a walk waves at a passing vehicle. Only moments later, the driver of the truck falls asleep at the wheel and the passing pedestrian becomes pinned to a tree with only the truck holding their body together.

Signs is a true masterpiece. The end of the world is here. The development of cro...
  • Ship In The Movie
    661 words
    The idea that every science fiction film is inspired by a religious or mythological background holds true in the movie, Titan, A.E. These backgrounds include those involving the Chinese, Greeks and Egyptians. The first suggestion involving mythology is in the title of the movie itself. A Titan was a race of Gods in the Greek culture that ruled the Earth before the Olympians. In my opinion, a large majority of the movie can be explained by examining this portion of mythology. I feel that Cale rep...
  • Amistad's Movie Plot

    The movie Amistad, and the excerpt from "The Life of Olaudah Equiano" both deal with experiences of important historical background. Both pieces take the audience through a period in history where slavery was not only accepted, but it was a prominent part of everyday life. In each story, the slaves were treated in such similar, inhumane ways that it is clear that the message the author is trying to get across is that slavery was wrong back then, it is wrong now, and it always will be wrong. The ...
