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. Conclusion Overall, this movie Cat O’ Nine Tails was not a very entertaining movie.
So many things brought the movie down. Poor acting, bad plot development, and awkward cinema techniques are some of the things to blame. After watching the movie I was left with a lot of questions. I felt like the movie could almost have been saved if some of the things in the movie were a little more developed, like the images from the video, and if the plot was made to be a little less fantastical. Then again, I also thought that if a couple more elements of dry humor and even further out plot twists were made, Ringu could have been a wonderful comedy.
The characters who played Marcellus, the first Grave digger and Oris, Jack Lemmon, Billy Crystal, and Robin Williams respectively, were fairly poor selections by the casting director. They lacked a certain Shakespearian character as famous comedians. It could not be forgotten making the choices dispiriting. “You tremble and look pale'; (1.1.53). The first viewing of the ghost causes the guards great fear.
Sometimes the sequence of events is out of order, an awesome scene is eliminated , or the cast just does not live up the characters in the original. The audience is constantly disappointed. They can't understand why Hollywood would mess up a story that is literally written for them. While many people believe that directors and screenwriters are unjustified in altering the movie, they actually have many reasons for making changes in the adaptation. One of the leading reasons why screenwriters change up the story line of a novel is because the book is simply too long to include everything.
Baz Luhrmann’s movies are known for their unorthodox visuals and creatively inserted music into the scene. Recently, he received some negative responses from his movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. His movie adaptation was considered unfaithful to the original text or story, despite using most of the same text and action. Luhrmann’s movie adaptation modified the original text in a distinct way, especially through the hyperbolic representation of Jay Gatsby’s parties and the choice of modern soundtrack. The movie didn’t quite touched the viewers as well as the original novel did, it only skimmed through the scenes and focused more on the “party” section that was mentioned in the novel.
While After Earth by M. Night Shyamalan could have achieved more, it has settled as just another movie at the theatres. The film fails to reach the audiences because of a mediocre plot and conflicting messages, regardless of an appreciable performance by the actors. Even though the film’s theme contradicts itself through the course of the movie, the acting rescues it from being a complete flop at the box office. If audiences are looking for a movie with a slow paced plot, this is the movie to watch; if not, then audiences should look somewhere else. Even though there is a lot of meaningless running around, audiences witness a well performed rite of passage for a boy who must conquer his fears and feelings of insecurities.
The original was renowned for its superior script writing, so it would be assumed that it would be obvious to take notes from the movie, yet it seems that the reboot had failed to do so to formulate a new identity. In its attempt to validate the new script, it failed to distribute the same emotions and vibe of a character trying to discover who he was. This had been quickly noticed by fans or the originals and its sequels and drew much ire for seeming to have an oppositely polarized wording when compared to the
Is this because we have all underestimated the film and overlooked its momentousness, or could it be the fact that the film was just simply over-rated in the first place? If the film was re-rated today, I am certain that it would not have the same success or praise. Our generation are up to date with the modern technologies. Today’s films are jam-packed with special effects but I’m afraid that Battleship Potemkin, the ‘masterpiece’, did not have any special effect on me. With only seeing a small section of the film, I personally don’t see the attraction.
The sequels, however, just show how hard it is to do sequels, to anything. 8. "Jaws" The second of two appearances from Spielberg, the original is considered one of the best films ever made, with a Hitchcock like approach to the score (to have the score tell the audience that the shark is coming). It is the film that set the standard for later summer blockbusters. "Jaws: The Revenge" is considered one of the worst films of all time and the third one is only slightly better, with nothing all that great to talk about either film.
Also I don't recommend this movie to anyone frankly it just has too many flaws.The MPAA rating for Inception is PG-13 which is probably the only thing i like about this, since it is a more mature movie less kids will waste their time watching it. Now if you haven't understood through the tone of the review I think this movie was bad, but how
