50/50 In my opinion, the story of 50/50 was told well. The movie thrived in formal and stylistic elements. The film was exceptional on the formal elements of character, plot and structure. It was also good at the stylistic elements such as music and cinematography. First, 50/50 was very good in the character category in formal elements. The character development was something that really struck out to me. The biggest surprise from this film lies in where the writer decided to focus the true heart of the story in the development of the characters One example is the relationship between Adam and his young therapist Katherine. They’re both too inexperienced to be dealing with things such as cancer. She is clearly inexperienced because Adam is one of her first patients. Their relationship would need to support the emotional side of an argument, rather than simply emotion. But the biggest relationship is between Adam and Kyle. Now this relationship is not as strong as it needs to be, but it’s enough to warm the heart and give Adam that final push into opening up. There is a good scene in the movie where Adam stays at Kyle's and finds a book on surviving cancer, filled with notes and underlinings, proving that Kyle does care for Adam and is worried for him. The next day as Kyle drops Adam off at the hospital, Adam embraces Kyle for being a good friend. Its a great display of subtle character development. Second, 50/50 had a very good plot and structure. I thought it was very well written. When I looked up some facts about the movie, I found out it was based on a true story. The person that the movie is based on is also the writer. Personally, I believe that a good story can also come from an experience such as surviving cancer. ... ... middle of paper ... ... macaroons. The frame was somewhat shaky and the picture was fuzzy. It was as though you were high with Adam. In conclusion, 50/50 has formal and stylistic elements. Claudia Puig of USA Today said, “ 50/50 winningly demonstrates that profound emotion and wide-ranging humor can co-exist in the same movie — just as they do in real life.” This movie makes you laugh and can really make you cry. It is a great movie that shows that you can’t go through something this big by yourself. It takes two and maybe more. A good film is a story worth telling that is told well. 50/50 is a great story that is written first hand by someone who lived the movie. The writer puts us in his shows and the director does a great job depicting everything. The music, the cinematography, the characters, and the plot all blended together to make one great story that made you laugh and cry.
This film also shows that people of different backgrounds can too be in love. This movie illustrates that even though there are differences between two people, doesn’t mean they cannot be together. In the world today, people of all different types are falling in love. This used to be unheard of, but is now becoming a way of life. I feel that this movie did a wonderful job of showing many aspects of love and the difficulties that people may come upon.
...ng until I started to realize the subtle techniques being utilized by Welles and his amazing shots he constructed. Like a flawless painting, every scene was drawn out and portrayed perfectly to capture the viewers’ emotions and thoughts. If the viewer likes and appreciates the art of film making, then they are sure to recognize the innovative aspects of Citizen Kane and how it has affected modern day film and culture.
The directing in this movie, however, was really poor. The props, murders, and camera direction left much to be desired. The director Dario Argento was highly decorated throughout the 1960s, but he really showed his bad side of directing. This movie had such high potential but he really destroyed that potential.
This film unlike most others on the same topic had no real event to focus on. There was not just one climax or specific scene that the others built up to or supported. I cannot say that I enjoyed it but I do feel it has to a great extent affected me. The only reason I feel that this film is one worth watching is because of the latent message it holds. It very successfully exposes authority and bureaucracy in society. The characters in this film portray people that are either convinced or have been convinced that are crazy.
It was unconventionally rewarding and an interesting comedy. Taking the film noir’s themes, Shane Black created a world with weird turns and twists of its own. The main protagonist did not have to be the selfless and arrogant detective. Sexuality was well respected, in a comedic way you can say, and even praised. It is a society with many vices, but that some way or another the characters find a way out of it. The woman presented in the film, Harmony, portrayed femme fatale characteristics, however, she was not tied down to any gender role she did not want to be part of. At the end, the purpose of the film is not only to ridicule, but to exhibit a new world adapted to different
Final thoughts, I really liked this film and really can't think of anything I had an issue with. The musics fitting, the cinematography is good and the ending is great. That said the whole time I was watching Re-Animator I kept thinking of how much this film feels like Return of the Living Dead and that made me just want to watch that instead. But that's just me and I still heavily recommend you watch this film should you find yourself with time to watch a true cult classic.
Now a story is great when it has a great plot,excellent pacing,and originality. When I say good plot I mean that the plot is well done and does not leave the audience confused. Excellent pacing is when the speed of the movie is fast and gives the audience I nice blend of exposition and action. Now these day originality in a movie is rare. But when the movie has a story that's original it's usually done right or even perfectly. That's why I like movies that were from the 90’s because of how original they
I have to disagree with both these reviews. I believed that the story was brilliantly written and the cinematography was beautiful. This movie touched me and had me in tears which believe me is hard to do. I do agree with the New York Times and New Yorker that it was a little dragged out and that Kiera Knightly acting was over rated. Other than that I would defiantly recommend this movie.
All in all this movie is good the only thing that it could have done different is an ending about 20 minutes earlier. It has its drag ons and loopholes. When we first see Kate, she is doing an unusual song and dance routine while cooking, and her husband comes and as fast leaves for some clients.
...r, this movie is lack of depth of storyline. The audiences can even predict what will happen in the next scenes. Moreover, the ending of this movie is too cheesy and irrational according to me. If only they change the ending to become more interesting and rational, I will give a four or five stars out of five. In spite of a lame twist ending, this movie is a perfect example to show that managers should be able to motivate and challenge their employee. It is important to remember that a happy employee means a productive employee.
One day a friend of mine, who does a little work on movies once in a while, told me about this new movie they were making called "Titanic". He brought in some pictures of the huge set that was built. I looked at the pictures and listened to him talk about how grandiose the ship set was. At the time I was wondering how they could possibly make an interesting movie about a ship that hit an iceberg and sank. I kept thinking more along the lines of a documentary sort of film. Nothing sounded really interesting to me. About a year after I had heard about this movie, I saw the first movie preview. To my surprise it was a love story as well as the story of the tragedy. The story attracted me so much that I wanted to see the movie the first day it came out.
I view this as one of the few truly great movies of all time. I say this because it carries all of the basic cinematic elements that compose a great film. These elements begin with the characters. You can hardly expect to enjoy a movie if the characters are not believable. In this particular movie the characters were not only believable but you could identify yourself a little in one or all of the characters. One thing that can have an unfortunate detraction from even a good movie is anachronisms. The only one I found was a halogen bulb in a light fixture. However, I doubt anyone would notice were they not looking for one. This movie can be enjoyed by even the most mentally devoid of audiences. The reason for this is that most people do not like being bossed around or forced to do anything. It did make me think about how little freedom we actually have in life and how we all need to live just a little bit more.
