...For over a century now, film has risen as a medium of choice to present war information. War films has risen as a genre particularly depicting warfare using themes and concepts such as naval, air or land battles. War films also focus on the themes of prisoners of war, covert operations and military training. War films do not always, however, depict battles. Sometimes, war films may choose to focus on the day to day military or civilian life in wartime without necessarily depicting battles. War film may be fictional, based on history, biographical, alternative history, or even docudrama. Many historical events particularly since mid 1800’s to the end of the cold war have inspired this film genre. The shifting political climate in America in the last half of the 1930’s for instance influenced the rise of the war film genre (Maland 159). War films more often than not been categorized as wartime propagandas other than classic war films or historical documents. Maland also describes the shift of attention was a change in the Communist party's political strategy that influenced war films during that era. War films that rose in the Second World War era were particularly very much associated with war propaganda. Why we Fight (1942-1945), Air force (1943) and Men at War (1957) are three war films from this time that were thought to be tools of wartime propaganda. A famous actor during that era, Charlie Chaplin, depicted the role of Adolf Hitler in the war film The Great Dictator...

...Film Viewer Opinion Paper Movies are a big part of life. People love movies because they can relate to them. Others like them for mere enjoyment and see them as an escape from reality if only for a few hours. The types of movies out in the world today are numerous. There is everything from horror movies, to romantic comedies, to drama, to documentaries, indie movies, foreign, and so on. Everyone has their taste of movies, and people decide to watch certain movies based on the actors and actresses who are staring in them and the storyline of the movie. These are all things that help people decide which movies are enjoyable to them, and which ones are not. Deciding Which Films to Watch Ramon decides on what movies to watch with careful consideration. Any movies that have actors that Ramon doesn't like he will not go spend money on them. In his opinion, some actors play the same role over and over again. A perfect example of this is the lead actress in the Twilight Saga movies. Ramon thinks that they could have found a better actress to play the part of Bella, some who could have played a role that was different from all her other movies. He also bases his decision on the type of movie it is. Scary movies, romantic comedies, and action thrillers are some movies that Ramon likes to see. Action movies that do not involve a love story, or have the story be about the love interest is another factor in my decision making. What Makes a Film Enjoyable? The...

...The Beauty of Editing It is very important to understand the idea of some elements when it comes to editing a movie. Acknowledging these basic elements could create a better experience for the viewer. On the short scene from the film Raging Bull, the viewer will find themselves under the presence of a technique called shot- reverse shot (p.148). The idea of this technique is to apply the well-known 180-degree rule by the editor. This technique is often used in scenes that deal with conversations between characters. However, in this scene the rule takes place in the boxing ring where the two characters introduced to the viewer are about to box. The scene begins with a tracking establishing shot of the environment and its surroundings. Later on the camera begins to cut back and forth in order to show who the competitors are and who made what movement to cause a reaction. I believe that even though we did not hear them conversing, the character’s inner thoughts symbolize the conversation. The viewer is barely exposed to any conversation during the match. However, the couple watch T.V does a little more of conversing and the viewer can also experience very similar cuts between the T.V and the couple. It goes back and forth constantly. Another technique shown in the scene was match-on action. Match on action simple refers to the movement of direction, and pace of actions, gestures, and other movements are linked in one or more shots. (p.156). At some point of the scene, the...

Caribbean Colonialism

...Today the Caribbean is known as a melting pot of cultures and societies, this is mainly due to preexisting historical factors of colonialism that were done in the early 16th and 17th century in the Caribbean. The exploitation of the Caribbean landscape dates back to the Spanish conquistadors around 1600 who mined the islands for gold which they brought back to Spain. The more significant development came when Christopher Columbus wrote back to Spain that the islands were made for sugar development. The history of Caribbean agricultural dependency is closely linked with European colonialism which altered the financial potential of the region by introducing a plantation system. Much like the Spanish who enslaved indigenous Indians to work in gold mines, the seventeenth century brought a new series of oppressors in the form of the Dutch, the English, and the French. By the middle of the eighteenth century sugar was Britain's largest import which made the Caribbean that much more important as a colony. Colonialism has been regarded as a significant and common experience that has been reflected on Caribbean people of today’s culture and values, based on the events and circumstances that occurred during the 16th ,17th and 18th century . A great example of colonial influence that has been made part of the Caribbean culture is food. Everything in Caribbean culture displays this forced adaptation and the influence of several cultures mingling, from the time of slavery and the days...

...Scream 2 Elements of Design Scream 2 Elements of Design I chose the movie clip from the film Scream 2. In this clip there is a movie preview of the movie Stab which is based on the book written by the reporter Gail Weathers from Scream 1. The setting is dark and rowdy with people running around joking. Some movie goers are dressed in the slasher attire complete with the mask and carrying plastic knives. They all seem to be horsing around, running, throwing popcorn, and emulating the slasher character with plastic knives. The camera focuses on a young couple, Maureen and Steven. Maureen is sitting alone when her “boyfriend” Steven with the slasher masked on came back to their seating area unbeknownst to her that her boyfriend was a victim of the real killer and is now dead. Upon her hugging him she finds blood on her hands and the real slasher immediately begins stabbing her multiple times. Although this murder happen in public view, the movie goers assumed it was a part of the show and did nothing as Maureen was killed. The Scream 2 film was a horror flick in one of many other Scream series. The artists involved in the production of this film are; the director Wesley Craven, production designer Robert Zimebicki, and the art director Ted Berner. This team worked hand in hand to deliver a phenomenon horror film. The director Wesley Craven is not new to horror film making.

...Director Nick Cassavett has created yet another tearjerker with his drama, My Sisters keeper. This movie is based on the novel, “My sisters keeper” by Jodi Picoult. The film stars, Cameron Diaz (Sara) and Jason Patric (Brian), they are the parents of Kate who is suffering from leukemia. She was diagnosed with cancer when she was four years old and since then her mom has devoted her life to saving Kate. The parents receive a recommendation from a doctor to have another child, solely on the purpose that the child will be Kate’s genetic match. There are many ethical questions that rise with this decision. This 11-year-old child is Anna, who undergoes many procedures such as, donating blood, bone marrow, and stem cells, to aid in the survival of her sister. When she is asked to donate her kidney to Kate, she refuses and claims she wants a life of her own and to control her own body. Anna seeks for a lawyer and decides to sue her parents, on the right to receive a medical emancipation. The mother is aghast by this lawsuit, however, the father concurs with Anna’s decision. Cassavett uses a sequence of flashbacks to reveal the legitimate reason why Anna is suing her parents, before the results of the case are identified.

When he is shooting the family from a distance he still uses...

...) |   |   | | | Mike Douglas | | (Singing voice of Prince Charming) | | The Title of the movie is “Cinderella”, directed by Wilfred Jackson, was released on March 4, 1950. There was no cinematographer or this movie since it did fall in the animation genre. However, several people were behind bringing the characters to life and making the movie come together. It falls under the genre Children’s work and then the sub-genre Animation. With it being an animated film it was based around voice overs for the different characters involved. The character list as follows: It was stated that “Information in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library indicates that producer Walt Disney had registered the title Cinderella with the MPPA by 1930, and a modern "making of" documentary about the film, which accompanied its 1995 video release, notes that Disney, who had previously made a 1922 silent short of the story, intended to produce a Silly Symphony based on the fairy tale. The PCA file also contains a letter revealing that the organization had granted a tentative certificate number to the studio for a feature-length Cinderella cartoon in Mar 1940, and that the studio had to request a more current number when the picture was finished in 1949. According to a Dec 1945 HR news item, Sergei Prokofiev's symphonic ballet of Cinderella had been submitted to Disney for consideration by agent Lou Levy. In Feb 1947, Disney notified Monogram producers the King Brothers that his......

...A Time for Film Noir Scarlet Street Marina Workman University of Maryland University College Film Noir is the French term “black film” used to describe an era of movies filmed in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Films that are considered to fall under the film noir category touched on themes that were not yet acceptable in society. These types of films were centered on crime, drama, deceit, and sex. The films were the first of their kind to cross the line pass conservative films. Many people debate whether or not film noir is a genre, a style, or a tone. Film noir has not been proven to be a genre. Scarlet Street is a film noir that was filmed in 1945. The movie was directed and produced by Fritz Lang. It was filmed in a studio in Universal City, California. The setting of the movie was New York City. Scarlet Street is an hour and forty-three minute black and white film. It follows an older gentleman, Christopher Cross, played by actor Edward G. Robinson, as he falls in love with a young beautiful woman. In Chris’ mind there is nothing he wouldn’t do for this woman. The very beginning of the movie shows a group of men celebrating Chris’ 25th year as a cashier. He received a very expensive pocket watch from his boss, JJ Hogarth. Chris was first portrayed to viewers as an innocent, loyal, hardworking, and dedicated friend and co-worker. As Chris was presented with a cigar the camera focused on his fingers as they crossed in superstition. Chris watched his boss, JJ...

...The fantasy or animation genre, is a film that contains science-fiction and at times comedy. The fantasy film is pure escapism where its characters live in in an imaginary place. This is what makes them very popular among young children and at times it is its story and plot that makes them popular among adults. There are many types of fantasy movies not only cartoon types, there are also historical dramas, documentaries and even movies that represent issues like economic depression such is the case of the remake of the movie of King Kong in 1993, which are more of the interest of adolescents and adults.

... very strange, childish relationship. They created a best friend hand shake, play pretend in one of the rooms in their apartment, and once created a giant pillow fort throughout the community college. These are not actions that you would expect from a black athlete. They do not fit the stereotype. Dan Harmon is not the only person to do this. Hitchcock challenged popular stereotypes in his movies. In the journal “Hitchcock and Race: Is the wrong man a white man ?”, Jonathan Cavallero analysis the use of race in Hitchcock’s films. Cavallero writes “Implicit in many of these films is the idea that perceptions, including those based in race, can be deceiving. Nonetheless, Hitchcock almost always upholds the dominant culture’s widely held beliefs of racial difference even as he questions them.” (Cavallero, 10). In the film The Man Who Knew Too Much, a woman is very suspicious of the dark skinned people around her, but the whiter skinned couple that she befriends kidnap her son (Cavallero, 10). Community does this as well but in a comedic way. The show challenges the audience’s expectations with its characters. Ben Chang is an Asian character that was a foreign language teacher that spoke without an accent and taught Spanish. This is opposed to a lot of foreign language teachers that have heavy accents. It also defies expectations because he is nowhere close to being associated with Spanish culture because of his Asian race. The show does a good job of addressing race without...

...1.2. TRENDS AND PATTERNS OF MIGRATION TO AND FROM CARIBBEAN COUNTRIES Elizabeth Thomas-Hope[1] INTRODUCTION Migration has become deeply embedded in the psyche of Caribbean peoples over the past century and a half. It has evolved as the main avenue for upward mobility through the accumulation of capital – financial and social. Thus the propensity for migration is high and there is a general responsiveness to the opportunities for moving whenever they occur. At times these opportunities have come from within the region itself or the wider circum-Caribbean region, as in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; in more recent times from North America and Europe. The migration dynamic reflects the interplay of international, national and highly personal circumstances. Global changes affect the international economic order and the division of labour and, as a consequence, legislative controls and inducements to the movement of labour across selective national borders. At the national level, economic, social, demographic and political factors influence the variable access of people to economic rewards and social opportunities. But migration is not a passive reaction to internal ‘pushes’ and external ‘pulls’. Within this wider international and national context, migration is part of a dynamic set of negotiations at all levels. For whether ‘free’ movement or refugee, there is a selective process that operates at the interface of the needs...

Teach Like a Pirate

...Teach Like A Pirate Part 1 of Teach Like a Pirate is divided into 6 sections: Passion, Immersion, Rapport, Ask and Analyze, Transformation, and Enthusiasm. Passion can be divided into content passion, professional passion and personal passion. A teacher who is fully immersed in the moment has a special type of intensity that resonates with great power in the classroom, regardless of the activity. Building rapport is all about interacting with your students as fellow human beings, not just subordinates. Rapport is important because it helps create buy-in. Ask and Analyze says that if you consistently ask questions that lead to creative and outside-the-box thinking, your mind will provide you with creative and outside-the-box answers. The Honda Odyssey example is so true! Transformation deals with reframing. A teachers job is to create a mental paradigm shift by reframing the content and its value and relevancy to their lives. Enthusiasm is contagious. Your attitude carries with it your single most powerful tool to influence your classroom. Part 2 of Teach Like a Pirate discusses crafting engaging lessons. I learned many ideas from Dave Burgess’ hooks. I liked “Move It, Move It”. It encourages kinesthetic activities in the classroom. We do a lot of music and movement in Kindergarten. I have also used the “People Prop” hook by having groups make human letters with their bodies. (ex: making the letter A by laying on the floor) The “Picasso” hook is...

...Film Appreciation Final Exam The film “what dreams may come”(Vincent Ward 1998) can be described as an emotional and dramatic film. This film should be preserved for a variety of reasons. The film is aesthetically significant for its unique special effects and storyline. The reason this is so is because many of the elements produced and the Mise-en-scene of each effect and character is quite stunning. The first aesthetic element shown is the story’s unique storyline, as many twists and turns shift your expectations left and right. The point of view in this story is subjective, and the first establishing shot begins as we follow the pediatrician Chris Nielsen, and we eventually see him meet and marry his wife and have children. The plot twists when the children die in a car crash, and the audience is shocked, and just when everything starts to feel right again, Chris dies in another car crash. The wife commits suicide, and audiences are in awe as the entire family they began to know was diminished. The storyline itself shows unique twists to each expectation the audience has, and proves to be significant because many films followed these plot twists of tragedy to create drama. The special effects in this movie proved to be quite unique. The main character Chris dies and goes to heaven, and the special effects show him inside a painting like world as the environment can be changed around him and is very slushy. The scene shows him dashing across a river...
