Halloween is a perfect example of a cliché slasher film. This film features some of the most
Compared to the CGI and other special effects that are available today, this film is terrible. Compared to films of its time, I would say it's above average. It is hard to tell, usually films that are --- less reliant on technology/use social problems that are ongoing --- can be enjoyed for many years, unfortunately this was not the case. This was my first film I have seen in this class that I wasn’t much of a fan of. I still realise the historical significance of the movie though, and it was very interesting the see how far the technology used to create the godzilla movies has come. I have seen both the 1998 and 2014 remakes of the movie. The 1998 movie was impressive to me as a kid, not so much now. The 2014 movie was fun to watch because its cast had plenty of actors that I recognized, the storyline was interesting, and the CGI was pretty believable. I’m sure with time the 2014 version of Godzilla’s special effects will be considered sub-par just like the other
I think that the opening of the film was not as good as the opening of
...ine. If you have seen the original and think the remake will be bad, watch it with an open mind and you just might like it. Based on these changes, do you think they would make a better movie?
We are still learning from the Great White and in 1973 we knew less. “Jaws” by Peter Benchley is the first fiction novel written about the Great White and is inspiration for the book comes from an actually incident in early 1900’s. In 1913, four people were killed off the Jersey Shore by sharks. Sharks will mistake a human for food but will release once it realizes it. Peter Benchley creates a monster from realism and brilliantly describes the great fish in scientific terms is his book. He speaks of it small primitive brain, the dorsal fin, and the fishes need to keep water rushing over its gills. He never specifically names the fish and allows the reader to form a picture of the fish. In doing so we are forced to believe the possibilities that there is a shark who is just hunting for survival, and the fish does not possess some extraordinary power. The book first published in 1974 by Doubleday. The book was a success and made The Book of the Month Club, and was given many praises in newspapers such as The New York Times. While this is going on, Richard D. Zanuck and David Brown, at Universal Studios was contemplating the possibilities of creating the movie.
Jaws' is the original summer blockbuster, setting the standard by which all others are measured. It's the Michael Jordan of cinema: there will never be another 'Jaws,' simply because the film so profoundly changed the way movies are made and marketed.
Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975) is an effective adaption of Peter Benchley’s 1974 by making a few changes to the story, it enhances the fear factor.
One movie that I personally feel should have a sequel is Avatar. Avatar is a science fiction, action, and adventure film. The story is about a paraplegic marine who joins a program called Avatar in place of his brother in order to interact with Na’vi people of Pandora (a fictional earth like moon). In the movie humans are trying to extract a mineral known as unobtanium which is vital to the survival of the Na’vi people. Jake decides to protect the Na’vi people at the end. In the next movie a continuation of this story with a cliff hanger ending would be ideal. I’m not a huge fan of Avatar, but financially it made over two billion dollars. Avatar also received positive feedback and many people are awaiting a sequel.
Watching a movie is an entertaining time, the movie can be for enjoyment, or trying to figure out the latest conspiracy theory. This would be impossible without a narrative structure or different archetypes. The narrative structure is found in Jaws, along with The Lord of the Rings. Without the basic stepping stones the movies would be bland, nearly unwatchable.
