I mean, just imagine, lets pick your favorite saga and trash it with another you hate. Wouldn’t that suck? Anyways, I’ll never get Halo back. Now you see why I hate CoD so much and why go out of my way to provide the evidence that supports its mediocrity . CoD is truly overrated and will destroy many more potential ideas for games down the line due to corporate control over certain developers.
In the history of movies, there are great movies that come out. Then, filmmakers try to recreate the brilliance of that movie with a sequel, sometimes many sequels. All to make more money with something that is familiar to everyone. It very rarely works as well a second or third time around. Because the films usually completely dumb down the first movie 's premise and drop the important parts, in favor of something a lot simpler.
Although this is not okay for real life, it is perfectly fine and amusing in the movie. I also think that most of the jokes in the movie were hit-or-miss. The good funny jokes balanced out the less successful ones. Basically, the parodies of The Ring and Signs were hilarious, but I definitely could have dealt without anything pertaining to 8 Mile or The President. These jokes just were not funny; they did not seem to blend very well with the other movies.
Haggis removes the social filters, making characters seem less human than the ordinary. I commend Haggis for this. Society refuses to acknowledge how racially insensitive their thoughts may be and in eliminating social filters Haggis causes viewers to look into themselves and perform self-examination. An article in Stereogum The Hunt for the Worst Movie of all Time: Crash by Gabe Delahaye as he makes reference to the movie asserts that, ”All of them run all over the city being racist and non-racist to each other, pointing guns in each other’s face and breaking down stereotypes only to reinforce other stereotypes. It’s like an after school special for horrible people.” The film in the eyes of Gabe strives on being a film of pure racism and stereotypical characters.
Everything is larger than life; not real but hyperreal, leading us into the imaginary worlds of the cinema but also leaving us to sit back and wonder at its creations. Geoff King The spectacular qualities within the contemporary films that use VFX became progressively important to Hollywood. The popularity of the ever growing special effects has been increased by a growing demand for products in different multimedia forms such as computer games, theme-park rides and many other secondary outlets that frequently generated more profits then the films they were based on. These and other developments have led some to a common criticism that they are all special effects without the ability to tell a compelling story. Many newspaper reviews of the latest blockbusters are filled with statements that they contain impressive special effects but the film fails to tell a good story or unfortunately there are no interesting characters.
Tim Burton’s Batman received a wide variety of reviews from critics and fans, alike. The majority of viewers enjoyed Burton’s take on the classic tale, while others did not appreciate the slight modifications on the original plot. A major difference Burton incorporated in the film was the overall dark tone, contrasting previous superhero movies. Unfortunately, this decision also brought Burton a lot of criticism; while many fans welcomed his new ideas, some did not like seeing Batman, a comic book hero, as the obscure man in a costume. Nevertheless, the film attracted millions of viewers because everyone was eager to see their childhood superhero in a movie that would surely become a blockbuster.
Even though movies shot in color, which were raved about, were becoming more popular than movies shot in black and white during the time period Psycho was made, Hitchcock went against the rest of the movie making industry and did something very unusual, especially at the stage his career was in. Although his reasons for shooting in black in white was partly a money issue and majority because he thought the famous shower murder scene would be too graphic if shown in color, it was genius of him to decide to do so. The lack of color set the tone of the movie. Shooting Psycho in black and whi... ... middle of paper ... ... vastly admired and appreciated to this day as one of the greatest movies made. It is incredible how years later this film still has such an influence on modern day horror films.
It is also a film that does not really catch our attention mainly because it is in black and white, meaning that we don’t really take it seriously. The lack of special effects is also something that almost makes the blasé audience of now cringe, as we are all so used to such realistic responses. However, for the 1960s audience the effects of the film would have petrified them and compl... ... middle of paper ... ... actually left the audience confused.

The fact that he had to play a psychopath could not have really been an easy thing to live with, but he gave a first class performance.
They empower the audience.” It is a fact then that the Media tries to portray and characterize the perfect characters in the society through movie screens. “The movies hit them where they live – in their own state of desperation and doubt. Movies don’t just provide them with escape, as the conventional wisdom would have it. They give teenagers the exhilaration of hope through the illusion of power.” People are being deluded by these so called perfect characters that they have adapted from action figures, super heroes, celebrities and all other glamorous individualities. But are they really so great and perfect after all?
