This film was dramatic and inspiring. This film opened my eyes to understand the struggles that woman have gone through to get the freedoms that they experience today. I would have to say that one of the definite strengths of this film was the cast itself. Because of the nature of this film, I could get a real sense of the actual “suffering” of these women. I would have to admit that I was completely ignorant on how this suffrage movement has literally shaped the voting rights of women in America. All my life I have heard about that great day when women were granted the right to vote. Never in a million years did I expect to witness such hostility towards women according to this dramatization based on American history.
9. Carrie (1976) - Carrie only technically has one jump scare, but it's quite arguably one of the most effective of all time! In case you haven't seen the film or at least the original film, I'm not going to give away too much, but one of the best jump scares of all time comes when the pace of the film is slow and thoughtful. The serene scenery, even down to what the subject of the jump scare is wearing is like a pleasant summer day. The music adds to the scene effectively, too. You never expect what's coming and you nearly jump out of your skin!
In conclusion, this movie is wonderful in how all the actor and actoress with the director and playwright came together to create a real life event with comedy, gossip, and friendship. I rate this movie 4.5 stars out of 5 because of how much jump cut is created throughout the movie get you lost for a moment until you hear or actual see the specific holiday. For example, they create a strong symbol with the title Steel Magnolias because all the girls are delicate and beauty but also them being tough and strong with her emotions throughout the movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know the true meaning of friends with fun, happy, and sad times because it just feels like it could happen to
This is a good family movie that can show the viewer’s how some people prey on one another. This movie reminded me of the times my brother and I didn’t get along. It shows how different families are and how they treat one another. Sadly this movie also shows how family members can be so cold blooded. This movie duplicates real life situations where innocent People get hurt, family loyalty gets divided and couples end up in divorce.
Although she makes these comparisons, she admits that she doesn’t fully understand what had happened even admitting it by thinking how “it frustrated her not to understand what had happened at that funeral even now.” This is when Stacey first admits that she never fully understands completely what is happening and what’s going on, although she never expresses these feelings out loud, she does so to herself, and that is the beginning of her character unraveling. She even begins to have second thoughts about her only friend Carol when she “betrays” her to Steve and feels as though “Carol had chosen in favor of Steve” due to what her father had said about white people and how” ‘they will always choose themselves’”, this makes her feel betrayed and claims that she “never felt this Indian in her life”. However, Stacey never confronts Carol about her feelings and goes on voicing these betrayals only to herself and her thoughts. Stacey exploring herself through only her thoughts becomes a sort of trend. This also becomes
I really loved this movie because when I watched it I wanted to be just like them. They were a young African-American couple who went through the up and down roller coaster of romance and being athletes. Quincy McCall and Monica Wright grew up in the same neighborhood after Monica family moved in the house next door to Quincy and have known each other since childhood. When they first met each other they didn’t really say anything they just kept looking at each other. Quincy was the best basketball player out of all his friends, so he was use to winning and getting any girl he wanted. Monica came down one day to play basketball with him and his friends she ended up beating him, which made him mad so he pushed her down on the ground and messed her
Overall I thought this was a really good movie. I thought it taught you a lot about diversity, women’s rights, poverty and peace. The movie was a very touching and inspiring movie; there is also a lot of emotion due to what they had to deal with on an everyday basis. To me the movie and their stories really teach you that you should be aware of your surroundings and to be helpful in your
It made really made me think if what the characters are doing morally wrong. Both cops handle justice a different way and no one taught Jake that the world is cruel, and twisted. This eventually causes the climactic intense ending, and will keep your eyes glued to the screen. Although I enjoy this movie there is somethings that could be better. For instance the movie has a slow start. I’m not going to lie, I did skip a bit to the ride along, for it was boring. I also would make a scene more believable, but I digress because if it was the movie wouldn't be able to continue. Overall this movie contained major keys to make it interesting.
Overall I found the movie to be quite interesting and exciting at times but a bit slow in others. The story itself was very clear to me and didn’t cause any confusion. It had a good flow also, just as you were on the verge of falling into boredom with a scene they switched it up on you to keep you
The actors are believable in their roles. Steven Martin who acts as George Banks is outstanding in his role, he acts very well, so the audience knows his feelings, and feels sorry for him. The stars are not the main reason for me to see the film, but the title is.
The film was difficult to watch at times. As an observer and someone who has never been in the situations that Shangra, Stephanie, and Sheila all faced, I found myself getting frustrated with the girls because I felt like they kept getting themselves into these bad situations. However, when the film was able to go more into their personal histories and backgrounds, I was able to better understand where the girls were coming from. It was hard to see the hurt that the girls were facing at home and then how they turned it around and ended up hurting themselves more by participating in crime and violence.
Lastly, I will now discuss the emotional, mental, and spiritual reactions I personally had about the movie. I felt very saddened over the loss of Graham’s wife because I could not even begin to know how awful it would be to lose a spouse. I also found it very sad to watch the children deal with the loss of their mother. The moment at the dinner
Tyler Perry teaches us throughout the movie how to deal with painful relationships and how to deal with ultimate betrayal. He also shows us how wounded people can heal and eventually learn how to grow from any past mistakes and focus on what lies ahead of us.
I felt that this movie addressed numerous forms of abuse such as verbal, physical, sexual as well as neglect. Her father, resulting in her having two children, sexually abuses Precious. Her mother verbally and physically abuses her at home. Numerous emotions were at play while watching the movie such as anger, sadness, empathy, as well as hope. Precious was able to tackle all the hardships she faced and persevered. She exemplified courage and strength through adversity. Precious had some very influential people in her life, however, which may have saved her life and her children’s lives. Firstly, the principal at her original school noticed Precious and helped her. She could have ignored Precious and moved her along in the school system.
