  • 2001 A Space Odyssey - 1,265 words
    2001 A Space Odyssey 2001 : A Space Odyssey. I am going to be talking about Stanley Kubricks '2001: a space odyssey', focusing (obviously) on the music, but also the sound. I will also be incorporating elements from Mark Millers article "2001 - a cold descent" 2001: A Space Odyssey, introduced in 1968, is a high concept production that begins by tracing the 'Dawn Of Man', which eventually leads to a journey through the solar system by a crew of astronauts aboard a spaceship bound for Jupiter. The accompanying soundtrack plays as much of a role in the development of suspense and intrigue as the actors performances. Three decades later, the soundtrack remains one of the most recognized in cine ...

  • Abstract Expressionism - 1,560 words
    Abstract Expressionism "What about the reality of the everyday world and the reality of painting? They are not the same realities. What is this creative thing that you have struggled to get and where did it come from? What reference or value does it have, outside of the painting itself?" Ad Reinhardt, in a group discussion at Studio 35, in 1950. My essay starts with the origin and the birth of this great expression in the twentieth century. This movement not only touched painting, it had an affect on various aspects of art- poetry, architecture, theater, film, photography. Vasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian are considered to be the pioneer artists to have achieved a truly a ...

  • Ancient Greek Theatre - 817 words
    Ancient Greek Theatre Ancient Greek Theater Imagine this following scene: You are sitting in a dark, fairly crowded large room. There are hundreds of other people, in hundreds of other seats surrounding you. In front of you, there is a large stage, with people acting out a play. Lights, music, and different sound effects set the mood of the play for you to understand more clearly what is going on. With these certain conventions, viewer can get a real grasp of a story in which several actors are trying to portray. However, it hasn't always been this easy to enjoy a play in a theater. Theatre and plays go back as far as "b.c." times. In the Greek theater, the conventions are very different. Un ...

Neo is eventually killed and then resurrected to become the one. Hence, the Oracles prophecy was correct. This is very similar to what the Interpreter tells Christian. In this meeting Christian learns all that he needs to know to successfully continue on his journey.15 Another biblical reference of The Matrix is that of the rebel ship, the Nebuchadnezzar.16 In The Holy Bible, Nebuchadnezzar was a Babylonian king that destroyed Jerusalem.17 This is not one of the strongest biblical references of the film because Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the holy city ...

  • Charlie Chaplin: Film As Information - 1,106 words
    Charlie Chaplin: Film As Information by Nicole T. Simonian (Business Economics with Accounting major) When a critic examines the silent films of Charles Chaplin a question that arises is whether the comedy he portrayed is a mockery of political and current issues, or a means to bring laughter to viewers. Silent films generated different emotions and thoughts since a spectator was simply watching actions rather than hearing an explanation through words. Information was cleverly construed this way and however the critic analyzed the information presented was an individual responsibility. In fact, Charles Chaplin once said, ..it is not the reality that matters in a film but what the imagination ...

Babe shot her husband simply because, as she just blatantly states in the beginning of the play, she did not like the way he looked But as the play developed, she revealed that she shot him because he caught her with her lover, a fifteen year old black boy, and being that this story takes place in the South, this was something that was not accepted in society. This was also hard on Babe because she loved this boy, although in the beginning, when this was being developed by Babe explaining to her sister Meg what had happened, I did not get the impression that she was in love with him, but in the end, it was made clear. The conflict ...

    Good Will Hunting A studious young man, an open book these two images swirl around the screen in a kaleidoscope effect, this was the introductory scene of "Good Will Hunting." This scene is followed by Ben Afflick, knocking on Will's door, when Will comes out a credit rolls by that says, "screenplay written by Ben Afflick and Matt Damon," just as the two walk side by side. This shows how perfectly the makers of this movie have everything timed, down to the credits. Also, the timing shows when the professor's assistant and Will are alone and the assistant tells Will how lucky he is to have someone believe in him as the professor does. Just as he finishes saying this the professor walks in and ...

  • Imagery - 2,396 words
    IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, "were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys" (3.3.403), his description so overcomes the Moor that later, in greeting Lodovico, he suddenly blurts out, "Goats and monkeys!" (4.1.256). SIMILE A direct, expressed comparison between two things essentially un ...

  • Introduction - 1,244 words
    INTRODUCTION Two years ago, MP3 was just another audio compression format. Today, it's a Net phenomenon that's at the center of an enormous controversy. That's because MP3 makes it possible for people with an Internet connection to bypass record stores (and cashiers) and download CD-quality music by their favorite artists--for free. MP3 is great for music lovers and cheapskates, who can download funky tunes to their hearts' content without spending a dime; however, it's a nightmare for musicians and record companies, who can only watch helplessly as their profits drop into a digital black hole. DEFINITION MP3 is short for MPEG-1 Layer 3 (Moving Pictures Expert Group), a format for storing di ...

  • Kelly Couch - 377 words
    Kelly Couch March 3, 1997 Period 1 Movie Critique Movie Critique The movie of Hamlet was an excellent, as far as book-movies go. I believe it was produced with focus, reason, and logic. The characters were also portrayed with a good interpretation. There were several changes to the play compared to the book, although the movie was done in such a way that they were not particularly missed, from the movie's point of view. Although, from my point of view, after reading the book, there were several somewhat important scenes and elements missing. The first scene in particular was missed. This played a part in setting the stage and was part of the whole theme throughout the whole play. It was in t ...

Filming over an actor's shoulder focuses the audience's attention on one actor at a time in a conversation, rather than on both. The Close-up shot is taken at close range, sometimes only inches away from an actor's face, a prop, or some other object. The close-up is designed to focus attention on an actor's expression, to give significance to a certain object, or to direct the audience to some other important element of the film.

  • Martin Dysart , Child Psychiatrist, Is On A Quest To Discover Why A Confused, Passionate 17 Year Old Boy Named Alan, Has Sava - 928 words
    Martin Dysart , child psychiatrist, is on a quest to discover why a confused, passionate 17 year old boy named Alan, has savagely blinded six horses with a spike. The discovery of this forms Peter Shaffers brutal play "Equus". "Equus", meaning horse in Latin, was performed by State Theatre of South Australia and directed by Marion Potts. Although written in the 1970s many of the issues raised are highly relevant to todays audience. The emotional impact of the play remains intact and continues to intrigue and mystify its audiences as powerfully as it did in the mid-seventies, if not more so. Alan Strang, played by Damon Gameau, is the only son of an opinionated but inwardly-timid father (Bob ...

  • Media Studies Psycho Essay Charlie Anderson - 1,241 words
    Media Studies Psycho Essay Charlie Anderson In his masterpiece "Psycho", director Alfred Hitchcock propels his narrative through closely following and manipulating the different aspects of the film matrix. These include the basic uses of conflict resolution, the manoeuvring of time and space and the utilisation of the narratives codes and conventions. Hitchcock uses a succession of non-autonomous scenes to describe how the apparent protagonist, Marian Crane (played by Janet Leigh), decides to steal $40,000, flee her home in Phoenix and undertake a long automobile trip to California. To the audience, it appears as though Marian Crane's theft and flight are the principal elements of the film's ...

  • Pink Floyd: The First Band In Outer Space - 1,595 words
    Pink Floyd: The First Band In Outer Space For many people, the group Pink Floyd is considered as un-popular, aged, and without any sense in today's modern society. It's so unfortunate that true rock and roll music is being left behind for the new head-splitting garbage that infests the airwaves today. The newest generation is unaware of the history behind all the "music" they listen to now. Where did it all begin? Who first wandered into the realms of psychedelic music to create a style and a culture that would last for decades, and never be copied? The answer of course is Pink Floyd Pink Floyd was the first band in outer space. Since the mid-'60s, their music has relentlessly tinkered with ...
