In Hollywood, the villain has been portrayed as a person that the audience loves to hate and hates to love. These characters are made up of wickedness of mind; selfishness of character and will to power, often masked by beauty and nobility. Others rage unmasked. Daring the worst to gain the most, the movie villains we remember best can be horrifically evil, merely sleazy, or grandiosely funny, but are usually complex, moving and tragic. The earliest known villain caught on film would be the serpent in the Garden of Eden coaxing Adam and... ... middle of paper ... ...Men with one of the most original, endearing and plain super human lead characters in years.
Power, what an evil object, driving people to deceive others. Gaeus Julius, the great Caesar of Rome, such a self-centered man. He had the ever so conceited outlook on life that everybody loved him, and he truly believed it, with all his heart. This is why many other characters, including Brutus , Mark Antony, and Cassius. The three of these men were rather noble in a sense, though each had their flaws.
In an article from The Atlantic The Worst Movie of the Decade Ta-Nehisi Coates blasts Crash for being one of the worst movies of its time. Specifically stating that, “I don’t think there’s a single human in Crash.” Coates believes that the characters portrayed in the film are far from the truth and the scenes are only hypothetical in nature. I must differ from Coates; he fails to be enlightened by the unique craftsmanship in which Crash was created to be. What Coates sees as the absence of any human beings in the film, I see as the elimination of social filters. Haggis removes the social filters, making characters seem less human than the ordinary.
This single act puts him in grave danger, although he is not doomed by any staggering outcome yet to come. After deciding that he will make a comedy it is time for the cast to be listed. Then a decisive moment for the movie comes where he chooses Lena, not many things known about her, clearly sparked by her outside beauty. He claims to be in an entire love with Lena; though that is nothing more than a sexual relationship. He doesn’t seem to enjoy... ... middle of paper ... ...finish, even if you do them blindly”.
That makes it particularly inappropriate for the additional dimness of 3-D,". Andrew O'Hehir's writing, and point of view of 'harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" was more accurate from someone who had an oppossing dissatisfaction about the movie. he described it as an Epic Fantasy, that has no beginning an no middle, but with an two-plus hours of thundering, momentousendings. O'Hehir provides many references, like Edmund Wilson, one of the twentith century's greatest cultural critics. He talks about the movie basically being a grave and violent picture built around the large-scale destruction of Hogwarts, Harry Potter's beloved alma mater and the conclusion of a final confrontation between Harry between Harry (Radcliffe) and the reptile-headed Dark Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), wh... ... middle of paper ... ...those who could relate to those feelings of the writers.
I feel that the couple was atypical and they both had completely opposite personalities, it was interesting to see how they would get along with each other and it was surprising to see how quickly they fell in love. Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind was a very divert movie, yet it lacked so much. I feel as if it gave too much in certain scenes, and those same features lacked in others. Although the adventures kept me in interest, what was I to do about the parts that didn’t have action, I was left puzzled. This film was overall interesting, yet it still left me wanting more.
These are stories of infectious greed, of broken dreams, of ruined families, and of the general malaise surrounding the American dream. The morality tales beneath the plots of Giant and Written on the Wind reflect the Greatest Generation's greatest fears. Through these, it captures the true essence of Romantic Melodrama. Like most melodramas, these two movies care little about how they say it and more about what they say, thus employing the use of common tropes of the genre. Rock Hudson's performance as Bick Benedict in Giant and his performance as Mitch Wayne in Written on the Wind are almost the same person.
Tales of a Strange Love in Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove , filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's nuclear war satire, portrays America's leaders as fumbling idiots and forces American viewers to question the ability of their government. Dr. Strangelove's cast explores the quirks and dysfunctional personality traits that a layperson would find far-fetched in a person of power. The characters are diverse yet unified in their unfailing stupidity and naivete. The film's hysterical dialogue sheds a darkly comic light at the most ironic of times-war. This film came out at a height of paranoia of the nuclear age and the Cold War, just after the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Plethora of Fools in Twelfth Night Folly is one of the main weaknesses in Twelfth Night with a number of characters portraying their own strange foolish ways. Feste is the professional fool; he is the most noticeable fool and is very quickly recognised by the audience as an intelligent man. Orsino and Olivia are really foolish because of the decisions they make but they are regarded as intelligent. The biggest fool of all is Olivia's steward, Malvolio. Feste was obviously the most noticeable fool.
This is principally the idea of moral relativity. History is like a giant story book being rewritten over and over to fit the author’s personal view of the topic. Like a new Hollywood movie remake of an older classic, it's the same story but with pinch of the producers opinion. Lord Actor’s statement, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are always bad."
