Although the movie missed an important scene, it managed to pull the audience back in through the action scenes and one charming main character. The treasure hunting really would have tied together all the characters and actions together without leaving the movie unsettled. The scary scenes with Injun Joe really brought the evil character to life all the way from his beginning to his dying end. Then to top off the whole movie, they brought in a curly haired Tom Sawyer. He was like a vision from the book with perfect attitude and slyness that keep you grinning.
Inception was one of the films that make you question what is reality compared to a dream. Christopher Nolan does an amazing job on having the viewers really think about what is going on throughout the whole movie. Nolan uses different angle shots, crazy rotations, and a great story to have this amazing film hit theaters. This film was not only to have viewers question “what is reality,” but it also is a rollercoaster ride throughout the whole entire film. Inception means implanting an idea into someone’s mind by entering someone’s dream.
He has revolutionized the motion picture industry with the films he has directed. Scorsese has a unique approach in directing his films. Lastly, Scorsese’s favorite actor to star in his films is Robert DeNiro, who is by far my favorite actor of all time. This topic holds much value to me because movies are an escape from reality that I enjoy. I do not believe many people realize how influential movies and all other media are.
MOVIE REVIEW OF ‘THE INSIDER” The Insider is a compelling and provocative drama, which is a very thrilling tale of what happens when a person is bound by the moral and rational appeals and responsibilities or what we would otherwise be calling deontology. It is very close to the human values and seems very practical in approach. The way the plot builds up truly reflects upon the work of the director and the various actors. It is a true masterpiece and probably one of the best works ever produced by Michael Mann who has other smash hits like “Heat” to his acclaimed credit. Too bad that he was not able to win many Oscars for his masterpiece although he did win a few nominations.
It felt like they were just thrown in there, with the only true exception being Kyle Gallner|Quentin|. I bought into his character all the way, for me he was the heart of the movie, and was one of the reasons this movie managed to make it to the level of average. The reason the original was such a big smash was due to it's creativity, and the horrifying fact that some maniac like Freddy could kill you in your dreams. Nightmare on Elm Stree doesn't know whether to go it's own route, or copy the scenes from the original, so it tries to do both to make the die hard...
Is it a dream or is it reality? Dreams are an interesting creation of our subconscious, representing the desires, thoughts and motivations of our subconscious. The relationship between dreams and movies has always been a thought-provoking one, where both share an idea that tends to feed into our future thought process. Appreciated by both critics and the public, Inception is a movie that challenges the whole concept of consciousness, portraying science fiction in a positive and stark manner in its process. This inspirational Christopher Nolan directed motion picture redefines science fiction with its complex theme and lack of advanced hypothetical technologies, but doesn’t fall short to take the public on an exceptional and thrilling adventure with its contributing special effects and remarkable portrayal of character.
Moviegoers who have never read the books will find the films to be among the most imaginative and powerful dramas ever brought to the big screen. Tolkien's faithful readers--most are fanatics by some definition--will find artistic departures from the books to be grating, but will revel in the battle scenes, the beauty of Jackson's vision of Middle-earth, and the sheer giganticism of the settings. Those Tolkien purists who despise the movies lack the capacity to allow their reservations to take a nap while their imaginations are taken for a ride.
As you can see film is only one aspect that our society marvels over Robert Louis Stevenson’s masterpiece. It seems that Americans grip onto this chilling tale because obviously the division of both good and evil intrigues us. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde give us the entertainment and the storyline that is appealing. Although there aren’t many versions of the movie on film it is the type of entity that will always prove to be successful. The demand for more movies based on the novel is definitely present-one can see that from how successful the Broadway show is (it is virtually impossible to come by tickets) and how thriving business with the theme restaurants.
Zooey Deschanel would serve perfectly as Jovie, Peter Dinklage as Miles Finch, and James Caan as Buddy’s father. Their tough New York personalities would often times conflict with the joyous and ecstatic Buddy the Elf, but would be submissive to change throughout the movie. The great actors and directors that made this movie are just one of the many factors that lead Elf to be as successful as it
Action/Adventure movies have one purpose, and that is to have the audience on the edge of their seat for the duration of the movie. National Treasure accomplishes that feat. Staci Layne Wilson of The Fantastica Daily recaps the movie perfectly by writing “Secret societies revealed a quest for the truth and treasure, a hateful bad guy, and a good guy and good girl who share some romance along the way.” National Treasure has something for everyone and this film will keep audiences of all ages glued to the screen. Even though the movie can be deemed unrealistic at times, those who can get beyond that fact will truly enjoy the movie. National Treasure is a must see for action/adventure fans and can be found in stores on DVD.
