going to appear in the movie. Jim Carrey is an example of an actor who
For instance, in the book Joppy knew Albright; Albright knew Todd Carter; Todd Carter knew Richard McGee as well as Matthew Terrell whereas in the movie every character denied knowing each other except Albright and Joppy. Another noticeable difference is that in the book Frank Green, Daphne’s brother ends up murdered and in the movie he lives and they both end up moving. The third noticeable difference is a character name change from the book to the movie; Matthew Teran in the book is Matthew Terrell in the movie and he ends up being murdered in the book whereas at the end of the movie he’s running for mayor. A fourth noticeable difference is the pier scene. In the book Albright and Easy meet at the Santa Monica pier and in the movie it is the Malibu pier. And the last most noticeable difference between the book and the movie is that Mouse knows Daphne Monet or shall we call her by her real name Ruby Hanks; however, in the movie the audience never finds that out. In the movie the only true thing you get to know about Daphne is that she is both black and white. Therefore, due to the many differences between the book and the movie it is confusing to the audience since it is almost like dealing with two different stories because of the plot inconsistencies.
Movies are a fun and modern source for entertainment that often try to depict events that took place in real life. Many films based on real life events are often criticized for being inaccurate or altering much of the storyline. Others are also praised for being as accurate as possible and portraying the character’s traits in the best way. The 2013 American war film “Lone Survivor” is one of those movies that did a little of both. This is not necessarily a negative thing as I really enjoyed the movie and thought it was overall a good film and a great depiction of the events that happened in the operation in which the U.S. navy SEALs we involved. There are many war films out there that probably give us a better depiction of what war really looks
Die Hard, a film directed by John McTiernan, successfully utilized several aesthetics, which offered viewers various meanings throughout the duration of the film. Although the diverse meanings grasped by viewers may differ, it was clear to me that McTiernan effectively applied elements of cinematography and mise-en-scene that resulted in viewers being allowed to interpret a range of different meanings or functions of the elements.
The original 1933 King Kong was created as a movie: to convey a story and entertain and audience. Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake took the foundation for King Kong and expanded upon it in almost every way in order to “make again” the amazement of the original for a modern audience. Audiences received the original King Kong very well. The stop motion sequences of Kong were amazing for their time and the movie grossed $90,000 in its opening weekend. In order to bank upon its success again sequels were made and then in 1976 a remake was made to improve upon the original. Paramount updated the movie to color, changed the story, and cast Jeff Bridges, a well-known actor of the time, as the lead. Although the movie received mixed reviews, it did
(a) In Die Hard (John McTiernan, 1988) John is dauntless. He does not give up on taking out all of the terrorists in the building. He even counts them off as he kills them. John is seen several times throughout the film without shoes on as he walks through broken glass which shows his level of dedication and effort to his task.
This was actually my second time watching 12 Angry Men I believe I watched either my sophomore year or junior year of high school. Normally I am not a fan of black and white films but this is one of the few I can stand to watch. Also watching it a second time I had different reactions then I did the first go round. Like how did Henry Fonda have the courage to stand alone all by himself when everyone else in the room was against him. Me personally I probably would’ve given in and just agreed. Lee Cobb was my least favorite he was just angry and upset for no reason, but I remember you saying if and actor/actress can make them not like their character because they're annoying than that means they are doing a good job. I also want to know was
in Brody) Actors are constantly searching for the truth behind these moments, and then use this truth to tell the story of their character. When the truth is found, and then executed well, the actor has reached their goal. At the end of the entire process, the actor’s goal is simple: tell the story with as much truth as possible. This is where Method acting comes into play as a way to connect to the truth, and to translate the truth for the actor’s audience. Another actor who greatly benefitted from the Method is Marlon Brando. He is widely believed to be one of the most influential actors ever, and turned going to the movies into a psychological experience. For some of his most famous roles in movies such as A Streetcar Named Desire, The Godfather, and Julius Caesar, Brando utilized his own personal emotional history to accurately portray his characters. (Thomson) An interesting aspect of the Method that tends to be looked over, is the fact that it is actually considered to be a very masculine and American way of acting. Few female actors have been famously successful with Method acting. The Method is preferred by some actors because they believe it to be a more sincere way of conveying the truth of a character and story. These actors are considered to be extremely dedicated to their craft, since they are so willing
There are approximately 630 visual effects shots in the film that had to be shot individual shots in order to capture the proper theme of the storyline. Technical advancements were made in environments, lighting, and simulation of physical effects and integration of CG characters in a real environment. This movie was a true success through the use of well-known actors, and by using proper voice over acting throughout this film. Actors such as Tyrese Gibson (SGT Epps), Magan Fox (Mikaela Banes), and John Keller (John Turturro) just to name a few of the actors that made this movie a huge success. The reason acting played a significant role in the accomplishment of this movie was because they had to act without having the most significant actors being present, the Transformers themselves. All the acting conducted in this movie had to be conducted without the use of real robot actors and most by standing in front of blue screens. By the use of editing the theatrical scenes were superimposed into the background of the acting conducted. It took a team of editors and computer programmers in order to accomplish this mission.
However, millions of movie fans are complaining about bad action movies. Bad action takes away from a film just as much as bad acting, but the studios have no system in place to protect movie fans from bad action..
