Gore, drama, and action. These are what most people pay Hollywood to show them at the screens. The movie gladiator from the year 2000 is no different. The movie gladiator is a movie with contents that does not align itself historically. Rather it is tainted with a bit of historical accuracy resulting it to be more difficult to discern the accuracy of the movie as it is now ambiguous for which part of the movie is unreliable and reliable. Nevertheless, this paper will be contrast the content of the movie with the historical accuracy of some of the event, the people in the plot, and the gladiatorial combat in the movie, proving the lack of historical revelevancy.
The mystery and the ideals of life and adventure made people want to see this movie, in addition, the images and the cinematography in the trailer was different as any part of the trailer could be used for a background picture due to how well they were shot. The trailer was one of the major ways of marketing the film as most trailers are but this movie was able to uplift a person and have them think about their on lives and have the audience a yearning to learn how to improve their own lives of try to live through the adventure of the main character. This made the film a great draw, just by watching the film I felt like I still have much left to accomplish in my life. In addition, many people have dreams similar to the main character who lived out his dreams by day dreaming giving it a relatable aspect in the film.
The movie Gladiator is based on a fictional storyline that takes place during the time of Ancient Rome. After having learned about Ancient Rome and the fashions of that time, I can say that the film Gladiator had both accurate and inaccurate representations of Ancient Roman fashion throughout. Some of the costumes, hair and makeup shown in the movie were accurate, while others were not.
The reason I chose to do a trailer for the book, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is because through a trailer, it was easier for me to grip the attention of an audience. Many trailers put in important and interesting scenes from the books, which catches the audiences’ eyes. These specific scenes are the reason why a trailer is very interesting. In these specific scenes, they each have a significant meaning from the actual story that can be related. In my trailer, I used an element of violence to capture the audiences’ attention. By using violent scenes, I have created a sense of mystery and suspense, which will catch the audiences’ curiosity and interest. Through the trailer, I have attached the book’s theme inside the trailer,
Unlike the first, the boy actually lost his mother from a battle with cancer. This shows how different our world is today. It also shows his motivation behind his urge to dance and his movement against the council in the town. The second movie has the same script and outline as the first. The difference is the way the characters walk, talk, and act. They wear clothes that are more dated to our pop culture now. Also this movie is different in the fact that nowadays it would be very rare and very uncommon for a city to ban dancing. Have you seen Miley Cyrus lately? I mean she isn’t the first to do something crazy. In my opinion, this second movie is viewed and focused more along the lines of the love story between the boy and the rebellious girl. The film and the tunes were intertwined to create a pop-culture phenomenon unlike any we're likely to see anymore, outside of perhaps "Glee," simply because we consume entertainment so differently 27 years later (Lemire). I personally love the second one, but it wasn’t a big deal to everyone like the first was. I never even knew about it until it came on the television one day while I was bored watching TV. Our culture today is more worried and focused on other things. No one cares about old timey tales of little things that government or church kept us from doing. Everyone pretty much does what they want to.
I think that the movie is more descriptive than the written part.In the written part it did not give inought detail in it. The movie had a lot of sound effects and I think sound effects are better. Sound effects are more illiterate it pulls you into the movie it feels like you are actually in the movie.
First off, the biggest difference is the time periods of each movie. The older movie was set in Early Renaissance times. The newer movie is set in the early ninety’s. Another difference is the use of special effects. In the

I will be comparing 12 years of a slave and Glory. In 12 years of slave it is about a free man who gets sold into slavery. Glory was about how slaves wanted to fight and prove that they are not good just for labor. They both are talking about slavery fighting for what you want. These movies had the same acting by the way they are so into the acting for these movies and you can tell they put their whole heart and sole into the movie. I love how much these actors put all their heart into these movies it makes it more interesting.
At the start of the trailer, the background soundtrack is very calm and soothing, but as the minutes of the trailer increase, the build up of tension and quickness in the soundtrack increases too, loud instruments and sharpness of the sound are formed and the instruments are all played at the same time near to the end of the trailer where the upsetting ending happens, the instrument and sound techniques create tension and the build up of suspense synchronizing with the ending of the trailer, also the suspense wants to match the feelings an individual would have when getting closer to knowing what happens in the end. ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ transforms from a novel into a movie. The speed of the trailer decreases towards the

The movie is better than the novel because it has many details that the novel does not have the part in the beginning where the dad gets pinned to the ground by a tree and then gets sick and dies a few days later but in the novel he is just
During the Roman Empire many emperors ruled in their own ways. Some were considered to be one of the “Five Good Emperors, ” and the others didn’t last because they were assassinated. They either just cared about themselves or actually cared about the citizens of Rome. The movie Gladiator portrays Roman life and the gladiatorial games. Really though, how does the movie compare to the history of the Roman Empire? I am really interested in the actual history of the gladiators and the movie is one of my favorites. That’s why I chose to do my review on it and I came to find out that the movie didn’t give me the information on the real life and times of the gladiators.
