  • Certain British Officers
    834 words
    Reactions to Roland Emmerich's The Patriot Roland Emmerich shows a first-hand account of a family that has to face the struggles of the revolutionary war for independence in his motion picture, The Patriot. Although the movie focuses in more on the family's struggle for survival through the war, this paper will focus more on the historical events of the picture. The movie depicted quite accurately on some levels, and more than likely, not so accurately on certain other levels in order to make th...

    MY STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 REVIEW CHARLES SANFORD ENG. 11 As I sat in the huge theater awaiting the movie that I had been awaiting so long to see, seen so many trailers before just about every other movie released this year. The previews before this movie seemed ten times more boring than they usually were, then like a thunderous cloud on the horizon the opening scroll began to fly up screen and the traditional Star Wars theme began to play, my mind was racing a mile a minuet awaiting all the actio...
  • Movie The Patriot
    595 words
    The Patriot Movie Review The Movie, The Patriot, was a rousing and vigorous Revolutionary War epic from the view point of a family full of revenge and strong wills. This movie began with the majority of colonists angered. This part of the movie caught my attention and intrigued me to keep watching until the last minute. I especially enjoyed the heartbreaking moments and the realistic war scenes in the movie. Although I liked those aspects of the movie, the storyline was exceptionally good as wel...
  • Vietnam War
    1,156 words
    Vietnam War The War We Should Have Won The Vietnam War, was not even a war, it was a Police Action. The young men who fought for their country had other views of what it was. This war showed how power hungry the U.S. was to influence the world. I thought the Vietnam War was a serious misallocation of troops, money, resources and time. The Vietnam War was a perfect platform for the U.S. to show the world how belligerent we were to stop the spread of communism. Some observers in the United States ...
  • Your Typical World War II Movie
    260 words
    The movie "Saving Private Ryan" is not your typical World War II movie. It is about the triumph of the United States over Germany but rather the focus on how horrific the effects of war are on those participating, not only physically but also mentally. What I liked about this film is the fact that it is not the plot that brings the emotions of the audience but the scenes of war and the interactions and dialogue of the soldiers involved. From this movie we get as close to a first hand portrayal o...
  • Positive Review Of The Movie
    661 words
    Star Wars: An Intergalactic Joyride " Star Wars' is the highest grossing movie of all time. It is also one of my favorites. It was released in May 1977 and re-released in a restored and enhanced Special Edition just last month. There are many different criteria that can be used to describe OEStar Wars' appeal. Gary Arnold and Edward Rothstein, two movie critics who had the opportunity to review this great movie, explain its appeal in very much the same way. There is a difference though. Arnold r...

    Platoon was a movie of the 1980's that focused on the Veit nam war. Platoon was written as an anti-war film, showing a lot of the negative aspects of the war. Platoon was a special film because of the 360 degree filming style that shows all angles of the war. The film was written and directed by Oliver Stone, who fought in Vietnam. He had a dream to make a movie about the war that is not fictional but how he actual remembered the movie. This movie has a sum what hard to fallow plot trying to emu...
  • Great Example Of An Anti War Film
    363 words
    All Quiet on the Western Front This movie was a great example of an anti-war film. I have never seen a movie that depicted war scenes as graphic as this movie. At first, I didn't really enjoy it, because the editing job was so terrible, but it was made in 1930. In the movie, the boys who enlisted in war were fresh out of school. They thought that was a big game, and by enrolling in the German army, they would become instant heroes, and win medals. They soon found out that it was the total opposi...
  • President's Face In The Movie
    929 words
    Wag The Dog The movie starts with the President hit with the claim he had sexual relations with a firefly girl during a tour of the white house, and all this happens two weeks before the election. I'm not sure if this movie was actually based upon the Lewinsky scandal that our current president is facing, but it seems this movie came at the right time. The story is similar, as far as the sex charges, and a war to cover it up. Clinton did declare attacks on Iraq, which was after this movie was re...
  • Star Wars The Hero's Quest
    346 words
    Overall I thought star wars was a really good movie. It had my eyes glued to the screen. George Lucas had a good plot to star wars. Ok Star Wars had a couple of mythical heroes. The mythical heroes are Luke Skywalker, Obi wan Kenobi, and Darth Vader. But Darth Vader is an evil mythical hero. There are folklore heroes are C 3 p 0, R 2-D 2, and Han Solo. The thing that makes Luke Skywalker, Obi wan Kenobi and Darth Vader mythical heroes are that they have powers and folklore heroes don't have any ...
  • Withdrawal Of The Movie

    Subject: Recommendation about The Manchurian Candidate I would like to first state that President John F. Kennedy's assassination was a very tragic incident that touched the hearts of many around the world. He hoped for both the equal rights of Americans and the peace of the world. He will always be remembered not only because of his young age but as a great person as well. I realize that government officials have been urging you to withdraw The Manchurian Candidate out of respect for President ...
  • Film Isn't About The Vietnam War
    843 words
    Apocalypse Now is movie about a Vietnam soldier with a checkered past, and who goes on an Odyssey like mission to terminate with extreme prejudice an American army Colonel. Who has gone insane in the Cambodian jungle. It is not a movie that glorifies the struggle between righteous American's democracy versus an evil communist Vietnamese. In Apocalypse Now the line between good and evil is blurred. Apocalypse is a reflection of the anti-imperial and the general anti-war movement of the era, and t...

  • Great War Movie

    Saving Private Ryan is a great war movie and has the best depiction of the D-Day invasion that has ever been presented on film before. The part of Saving Private Ryan that makes it a great war movie is its authenticity and the same goes with the D-Day invasion. The realism and complete truthfulness of war has never even remotely been attempted by another movie. Saving Private Ryan is somewhat based on a true incident and this makes it easy to accept the characters and events as real. The well de...

  • Points In The Movie
    905 words
    I decided to write this analytical review on the film All Quiet on the Western Front. My decision was made when I saw it as a suggested reading because I have heard about the movie many times, yet, I've never seen it. I actually am happy I never had, because I believe I was able to get much more appreciation out of the movie because I am studying it's topic in this class. As I began the movie, I could not figure out if the movie was comedic or not. The way the movie was filmed, as well as the ac...
