Relationship Analysis Watching movies is a great way to learn and study different interpersonal relationships. A lot of them are just like real life situations that happen every day between people. One of my favorite movies is Love and Basketball. I chose to talk about this movie because in my opinion it really focuses on the relationship of the two main characters. There are good moments and bad ones in their relationship with one another. I also believe there are a lot of different things the characters could have done and said that would have made communicating with each other a lot easier. It’s one of my favorite movies and I have learned a lot about communicating from it.
Gender Relationships in the Film Love Jones Using the movie Love Jones I will talk about the characteristics of male/male and female/female relationship as they are portrayed in the film. Then I will talk about how different the female/male relationship is and focus primarily on their communication styles. There is some harsh vocabulary included in my essay but only in quotations that I have taken from the movie itself to communicate what was going on in the scenes I have chose to talk about.
In “Love: The Right Chemistry”, author Anastasia Toufexis discusses the philosophy of love in a more technical manner, by expressing it through scientific knowledge. She argues that, “Love rests firmly on the foundations of evolution, biology, and chemistry.” Toufexis
One does not necessarily have to cluck in disapproval to admit that entertainment is all the things its detractors say it is: fun, effortless, sensational, mindless, formulaic, predictable, and subversive. In fact, one might argue that those are the very reasons so many people love it. At the same time, it is not hard to see why cultural aristocrats in the nineteenth century and intellectuals in the twentieth hated entertainment and why they predicted, as one typical nineteenth century critic railed, that its eventual effect would be to over turn all morality, to poison the springs of domestic happiness, to dissolve the ties of our social order, and to involved our country in ruin." said Neal Gabler, the author of Life in the Movie: How Entertainment Conquered Reality. I agree with this quote, that entertainment is mind numbing and lessen the values of our society. Back in the nineteenth century, entertainment was something that actually stimulated their minds,
First, the dichotomy between love and hate was described by Cameron Frostbaum who played Romeo and Antonia Gentry who played Juliet very well. Since their first meeting from the Capulet’s party, both characters would not take their eyes off from each other. Even when Romeo and Juliet were mingled between a group of people, their gaze were
Beginning at a very young age in our lives, the film industry influences the way in which each individual interprets the actions that are taken by a character in a film. The constant portrayal of what characteristics would best fit with defining what it is to be a hero, seem to focus mainly on masculine traits. The desirable traits that are illustrated in the majority of the films are being independent, strong, and most importantly a male. However, the film Maleficent (2014), contradicts this idea. This film tells the story of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie), a young woman that has been fooled into believing in true love. When the person she believed was her true love, removes her most precious weapon she is left with great agony and a thirst for
Most people are guilty of wishing that they could find their own Leonardo DiCaprio with whom to fall in love on a boat destined to sink, or even wishing they had a friend like Samwise Gamgee from the film production of The Lord of the Rings, always urging his friends to carry-on through difficult times and willing to help them to do so. When people submerge into these fantasies, they tend to forget reality; while a woman may expect a man to give his life for her after only five days, it probably will never happen. Same goes for the unrealistic friend expectation; nearly all friends have their own problems with which to deal—they do not have time to carry their best friend up a mountain to dispose of a wicked ring. Silly daydreaming set aside, this idea has truth to it. “It’s not like in the movies” is a popular phrase that is used in accordance to relationships. Hollywood has created a standard of companionship that probably is not going to happen. Hollywood tends to build romance to seem perfect, that he will always say the right comments when she is sad, or she happens to like all the same activities, music, and movies as her significant other. Film-based romance appears knowing and effortless. For example, someone will know when he or she meets the one, and if the relationship is too much effort then it is clearly not meant to be. These expectations of “love at first sight” and “if it is meant to be it will
Why do you believe that they need to show more themes and mateship throughout the film?
Telling the story of Prince Obolensky’s life has merit. One assumes this is an outline for a feature script. The story is presented as a drama with a dramatic tone. The time period, setting, and era feel authentic. The characters, especially Alex and Rose, have great potential to be complex
Several relationships are highlighted in the film to show how couples can show and express intimacy towards each other. Most of the couples in the film show their intimacy in many different ways. Some common ways that couples show their intimacy are kissing one another, hugging, or presenting them with a gift. Some uncommon ways how some of the people in the movie show their intimacy of their relationships were going on a fourteen hour flight, through phone calls or texting. An example of an uncommon relationship was between Captain Kate Hazeltine and Holden. Although they didn’t share an intimate relationship, they showed affectionate ways of communicating with each other on the plane.
The film “When Harry Met Sally” is rife with examples of interpersonal communication victories and utter failures. The main characters- Harry Burns played by Billy Crystal and Sally Albright played by Meg Ryan- are captive to each other’s company during a car ride from Chicago to New York and quickly find they maintain very opposite viewpoints on much of life, especially relationships between men and women. The premise for the argument and the remainder of the film is the disagreement as to whether or not women and men can be friends without sex getting in the way. Harry maintains it is not possible, and Sally takes the opposite position. Throughout the film Harry and Sally display a number of different communication traits. Their
But no matter how realistic this sounds it is not useful for Hollywood representation of romance. It lacks the suspense that every romantic movie should have. The only reconstruction I can think of was in the movie “Away we go” where the two main characters shared their thoughts and desires all the time. They had a healthy relationship because there was no guessing.
The film takes place during the height of Irish mob All of the characters presented in the movie have a distinct personality, making the viewer engage deeply in the heart pumping action and drama.
Although in recent years Hollywood has begun to attempt to make movies with more diverse casts, for the most part, the RomComs that were made from 2005 and onward are mostly just boring
However great action is far more complicated than great acting. Movie fans understand great acting comes from great actors. Great action, on the other hand, comes from the collaboration of a team of great filmmakers. The director, producers, director of photography, stunt coordinator, actors, stunt performers, editors and VFX team all play a part in making great action. Bad action happens when these positions are not filled with the best filmmakers available or when the filmmakers do not get the time, money and talent they need to bring their vision to
