  • Movie To The Play
    1,031 words
    Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, and the movie with the same name have many differences and similarities, all of which contribute to the individual effectiveness of each in conveying their central message. There are several additions and variances in the movie. First of all, the scene where the children and Tituba are dancing in the forest is never seen in the forest; we simply learn of it from dialogue. This scene was most probably added in the movie for a dramatic effect: foreshadowing. Alo...
  • Great Movie
    440 words
    Being a Star Wars fan for many years, I was greatly interested in the upcoming prequels (Episodes I, II and ). So, when Episode I was released, I was at the theater the opening day and I was just absolutely mesmerized. The movie was like a fine quilt, beautiful in color, smooth and comfortable. As the main theme and the familiar Star Wars title sequence began, I knew I was in for a great movie that would be full of action, adventure, comedy and drama. I would like to commend George Lucas and his...
  • The Crucible Movie Review
    564 words
    The Crucible Movie Review This captivating screen version of The Crucible is based on Arthur Miller's play in 1953. Nicholas Hytner did an excellent job at directing this movie. There are a few faults in the film, but overall it was a wonderful movie. The first fault in the movie was the beginning scene. The scene was supposed to be a night scene. But it looks as if it was early morning. I think Hytner shot the scene during the day and tried to use the night vision but it did not work so well. A...
  • Scene In The Movie

    Of Mice and Men Movie Critique Overall, I thought the Of Mice and Men movie was fantastic and very well done by Gary Sinise. Gary Sinise is the director of the movie and also plays the role of George. This movie was made in 1992, and for a fairly old movie it is very nice. I feel that the movie is at a much higher level in entertainment than the book it was derived from. In the movie you can actually see and hear things that you probably would not catch on to in the book. For example there are t...
  • Parts Of The Movie

    In Annie Hall, there is an interesting mixture of the real and the fantastic. It is a very simple love story that is very ordinary and real to life, it could happen to anyone. It tells the story of Ally Singer and Annie Hall, who fall in love for awhile, but things dont work out, so they break up. What makes this movie different is that it uses an unusual method of commentary to get its point across. During many parts of the movie, it is not really like a movie. It is just Woody Allen talking ab...
  • Beginning Of The Second Movie Scene
    441 words
    Cinematography In MacBeth When I first watched the two episodes of MacBeth I noticed several differences in the was the two directors portrayed the settings and characters in witch scene. In the first movie I found the witch scene to be very dark and mysterious which made it easy to tell what the witches were doing and the fog and lightning gave me the impression that bad things were yet to come. This atmosphere is totally different from the second video though because the second one takes place...

  • My Favorite Scene In The Movie
    880 words
    The Shawshank Redemption For my analysis, I chose the movie The Shawshank Redemption. Frank Darabont directed Shawshank and wrote the screenplay based on the novel Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by author Stephen King. The movie was made in 1994 and produced by Niki Marvin. The movie stars Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins as two convicts serving time in a New England prison named Shawshank. Tim Robbins plays a man named Andy Dufresne, a banker, who gets convicted of murdering his wife and ...
  • One Example Of Mise En Scene
    1,596 words
    Mise-en-scene is the principle by which a piece of film will derive its meaning wholly from what happens in the single shot and not from the relationship between two shots. For example the director might include shots with various composition, angle, depth, movement, and lighting. Citizen Kane has many good examples to show Mise-on-scene usage. The scene that I believe is the most significant and powerful mise-en-scene that I have this seen this semester exists in this movie. This occurs when th...
  • Movie And The Play
    337 words
    Usually, when a movie is made about a story in a book or a play, the two stories are not exactly the same. The movie tends to add small details or leave some out in order to meet time limits and to make the story what they think will be more interesting. Such is the case with Shakespeare's Hamlet. The movie starring Mel Gibson and Glenn Close left out and even added things that were not originally in the play. When Shakespeare wrote Hamlet he did not write in a scene depicting the funeral of Kin...
  • 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...

    scarface If you are interested in watching an action filled gangster movie with lots of guns and gore, then say hello to my little friend, as Tony Montana would say. This film is directed by Brian De Palma whom made it after the 1932 classic Scarface. The movie has a couple of well known actors and actresses such as Michelle Phieffer and Al Pacino, in which I feel is Pacinos best movie. There are many famous and well-known scenes and phrases that have came out of this movie. I feel that this is ...
  • Movie Sir Henry

    Imagine if you had to read about the Titanic, instead having the pleasure of watching it. Wouldn t it be boring That's why movies are preferred over books. Movies have everything. A's ance, romance and suspense are all parts of a good movie. Books can only help the reader imagine the plot, but the movie actually takes the reader there. The movie version of The Hound of the Baskervilles starring Basil Rathbone made in 1939 was favored over the 1901-1902 version of The Hounds of the Baskervilles b...
  • Scene With Naked Teenage Girls
    738 words
    Brian Lee Grade 10 November 3, 2003 Film Review The Crucible: Film Review! ^0 Truth is stranger than fiction! +/- The saying! ^0 Truth is stranger than fiction! +/- is perfectly elucidated in the movie The Crucible by Nicolas Hytner. The horrid Salem witch trial shows how a factual based event is more terrifying than any fictional story could be. Certainly envisioning a group of 14-year-old girls accusing adults and elders for witchcraft and persuading the court to execute them is extremely hard...
  • Old Movie Theatre
    490 words
    I've always enjoyed foreign films, and Cinema Paradiso was no exception. This film captivates a very important part of human lives; the movies. I never realized the effect movies quite have on people until I saw this film. People get absorbed into films and it almost becomes a part of them, and the people feel like they are a part of the film. It almost seems like magic. The things people were doing in the theatre were what people still do in theatres today. Talking along with the characters in ...

  • Movie And The Book
    549 words
    The movie version of this story and the original written version vary quite a bit. One significant difference was the change in the character of Ethan. I think that Edith Wharton's image of Ethan, which was present in the book, was much different than what was shown in the movie. The movie was good, but it did not depict the events of the book very accurately. In the movie, Ethan was much more vocal about his feelings compared to in the book. He rarely said a word to Mattie in the novel, but in ...
