The film was unable to live up to its own expectations given prior to release. Ross douthat from the national review says "Nolan 's movies, alas, don
't support these panegyrics. The result has been backlash: From the blogs to the glossy magazines, critics have lined up to declare the new movie
overrated, and Nolan a grim gamesman who lacks the human touch" From well known magazines, to blogs, even movie critics have deemed the film
overrated. lucius shepard from The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction says, "In the end we're left with another over–hyped summer movie, a

It’S Been About Four Years Since My First Day Of Work At
It's been about four years since my first day of work at the white house. Well technically, my work for the white house started just out of college,
when I got my first job as a desk jockey at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I was working in the cyber security branch wasting my days trying to
follow the money trails of billionaires who'd move their money back and forth from offshore accounts. You would think the FBI would be some sort of
billion–dollar operation filled with machine guns, drug busts; and car chases, at least that 's what I thought it would be. The reality at the FBI was that
the people either kissed ass or got lucky by stumbling across a million–dollar drug ring.
Candidly, I hated my job: I drained hours needlessly ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Four years ago, I put in a transfer notice to move into the secret service branch on the other side of D.C. Thankfully, my prayers were answered and I
reported to the White House from there on out. Over those four years, I worked very closely with President Barack Obama and never once had to step
foot in a 5x5 coffin they once called my cubicle. I became happier, giving yourself a new purpose often does that for the soul. As my heart grew
more contented, my once oversized apartment began to grow smaller. I met a girl who I now call my wife, and that guest bedroom is no longer
empty, but instead sleeps my beautiful little girl. I am lonely no longer., I have companionship and I have a family who loves me and I love them
back. I worked my way into happiness that I once only daydreamed about.
I remember the lonely moments by myself, peering over a flat landscape to the river. . Changing jobs allowed me to determine a new direction for my
life. I was able to escape the social normality and see life outside of 1024 x 786 pixels where I was confined.
When I took the D.C. transit to the White House early one morning I was told I was not only protecting President Obama today but also a film crew
and a special guest. I didn't get to know the special guests name until I met him. When he came through the gates later that day. It was very secretive at
the White House, you didn 't write what you could say and you

Stars By Richard Dyer Summary And Analysis
Stars are the faces we see and admire on television. We as a society see stars and immediately want to experience what they experience and we want
to understand them. We see stars as superficial beings. We see the roles they play in movies and television and only the major things that producers
want us to see. Richard Dyer, film critic and author of "Stars" asserts that stars are constructed to an audience so they can relate to them and easily
identify with them.We connect to the star based on a feature that we admire or share. This development from an admiration to an idolization pushes an
attempt to replicate what society admires in the star. This can either be a positive role or negative role. For example, for someone who admires
Leonardo DiCaprio, they might want to donate to his foundation supporting the economy and climate change. While others may idolize and want
to behave like Lindsay Lohan and experiment with drugs. This skews what teenagers and kids see as 'cool'. Many of the reasons why young
women want to appear thin is because of the stars we see on television. Many female stars have an hourglass shape to them, large breasts, flat
stomach, and wide hips. If one were to google the perfect body, studies about how we view the perfect body arise, as well as an article about the
perfect Kardashian body and how to get one are the first links that appear. Richard Dyer presents an idea in his book "Stars" that examines the
social types of stars. He analyzes their indigenous role in how society functions through the history of film production. Dyer describes the
characteristics of stardom as ordinariness, success, love, and consumption. Ordinariness is sought for in the eyes of stars because that is necessary to
relate to the public. If society viewed stars as another species or not human, no one would have the desire to be a star and they would become
unrelatable. High school students have been utilizing the idea of '#relatable' or '#me' for years because generally, people have the aspiration to relate to
others. Neil Patrick Harris got married three years ago to David Burtka, and three years later he made a post expressing his joy and gratitude that he
was able to marry the love of his life. The

Film Analysis Of The Movie Inception
The film Inception captured the imagination of many spectators as one of the best science fiction and thriller movies to be produced that year. It was
produced and directed by Christopher Nolan who also directed The Dark Knight, Interstellar, and Dunkirk. Inception is based on the basic inspiration
that a single idea in an individual's mind can be either the most valuable asset or the most dangerous weapon.
Inception is a science fiction thriller movie. This genre deals with situations and technology that would be classified as scientific, but does not exist in
real life. Inception connects with this because of the technology they used to enter the dreams. Although it was never explained, the machine seems to
pump somnacin into the body. Somnacin is a drug utilized to initiate dream sharing and lucid dreaming. The movie is also classified as a thriller
because of the exciting plot. It has intense chase scenes, gun fire, explosions, and fight scenes all within the dream state. The expectation for the
movie based on the trailer would be constant action. It seems that the main character is away from his family and is trying to get home, but the only
way he can is to do one last job. In the trailer the statement "your mind is the scene of the crime" is shown, this indicates that most of the content will
be in the dreams of the subject.
Inception is about as many as four levels of dreams within dreams, and dreams that eclipse reality. There seem to be two themes discussed in

  • 3. Stars By Richard Dyer Summary And Analysis Stars are the faces we see and admire on television. We as a society see stars and immediately want to experience what they experience and we want to understand them. We see stars as superficial beings. We see the roles they play in movies and television and only the major things that producers want us to see. Richard Dyer, film critic and author of "Stars" asserts that stars are constructed to an audience so they can relate to them and easily identify with them.We connect to the star based on a feature that we admire or share. This development from an admiration to an idolization pushes an attempt to replicate what society admires in the star. This can either be a positive role or negative role. For example, for someone who admires Leonardo DiCaprio, they might want to donate to his foundation supporting the economy and climate change. While others may idolize and want to behave like Lindsay Lohan and experiment with drugs. This skews what teenagers and kids see as 'cool'. Many of the reasons why young women want to appear thin is because of the stars we see on television. Many female stars have an hourglass shape to them, large breasts, flat stomach, and wide hips. If one were to google the perfect body, studies about how we view the perfect body arise, as well as an article about the perfect Kardashian body and how to get one are the first links that appear. Richard Dyer presents an idea in his book "Stars" that examines the social types of stars. He analyzes their indigenous role in how society functions through the history of film production. Dyer describes the characteristics of stardom as ordinariness, success, love, and consumption. Ordinariness is sought for in the eyes of stars because that is necessary to relate to the public. If society viewed stars as another species or not human, no one would have the desire to be a star and they would become unrelatable. High school students have been utilizing the idea of '#relatable' or '#me' for years because generally, people have the aspiration to relate to others.

It was produced and directed by Christopher Nolan who also directed The Dark Knight, Interstellar, and Dunkirk. Inception is based on the basic inspiration that a single idea in an individual's mind can be either the most valuable asset or the most dangerous weapon. Inception is a science fiction thriller movie. This genre deals with situations and technology that would be classified as scientific, but does not exist in real life. Inception connects with this because of the technology they used to enter the dreams. Although it was never explained, the machine seems to pump somnacin into the body. Somnacin is a drug utilized to initiate dream sharing and lucid dreaming. The movie is also classified as a thriller because of the exciting plot. It has intense chase scenes, gun fire, explosions, and fight scenes all within the dream state. The expectation for the movie based on the trailer would be constant action.

Throughout the interview, Obama emphasizes our need to take action now. Because the president of the United States is a highly respected and influential figure, this scene establishes substantial credibility or ethos in the film. Not only is Barrack Obama highly regarded because of his presidential position, but he has recently expressed concern in the issue of climate change with his involvement in the Paris Agreement, a plan designed to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and deter global warming. The audience is likely to trust the opinion of someone who proves he is well–informed and involved in the issue.

Introduced through films such as The Musketeers of Pig Alley (1912) and Underworld (1927), the genre has become increasingly complex in its development, evidenced by the sophisticated narratives and advanced cinematographic techniques of more recent films such as Road to Perdition (2002) and The Departed (2006). This paper will serve to analyze only two of these brilliant works, and will do so through a compare and contrast format.

Martin Scorsese effectively uses a complex twist of plot in which the narrative of the main antagonist of the film, Staff Sergeant Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon), is paralleled and intertwined with that of an opposing character, William Costigan Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio). Colin Sullivan, raised in a poor Irish neighborhood of South Boston and trained to become a mole for Irish mobster Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) after his acceptance into the Massachusetts State Police, not only must pretend to flush out the suspected mole on the force (himself), he must also find the opposing infiltrator (Costigan Jr.) which the State Police have planted in Costello's crew. The level of complexity that arises from this scenario is unprecedented in the genre and conclusively demonstrates the development of this type of film from its introduction to the present day. Although the differences in overall plot of these films may vary greatly on a macro scale, The Departed is hauntingly reminiscent of Scarface when analyzed with a higher level of detail. First of all, the name of the reigning mob boss who controlled the illegal alcohol trade that is murdered by antagonist Tony Camonte (Paul Muni) in the opening scene of Scarface is named Big Louis Costillo.

  • 10. Romeo and Juliet: A Text to Film Comparison Essay Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has been modified numerous times and has been a source of inspiration for many playwrights and directors. Franco Zeffirelli and Baz Luhrmann are examples of directors that use Shakespeare's legendary tragedy as a basis for their films. In the Franco Zeffirelli version of Romeo and Juliet, produced in 1968, the setting is accurate to the times of when William Shakespeare wrote the play. In the last act of the film a few differences arose. In Zeffirelli's production Romeo does not request a letter telling of Juliet's well–being from his friend Balthasar, whereas he did so in the play. This letter was to be given by Friar John, who is not mentioned in the 1968 film. In act 5 scene 3 Paris was laying flowers... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In the famous balcony scene, the newer version is portrayed in the Capulet's swimming pool than in the actual balcony. When Balthesar comes to tell Romeo, who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio, of Juliet's death, he did so on a horse. In the 1996 film adaptation, he comes to Mantua in a 1983 Ford Crown Victoria. In the scene where Romeo is in Mantua, instead of having Friar John ride a horse to Mantua to give Romeo the letter, the letter is delivered by United Postal Service. Romeo missed the delivery of the letter twice. Once because he was in his backyard hitting rocks and the other time was because the UPS man was walking up to Romeos' door when Romeo drove away. This letter blew away in the wind as Romeo drove off. After departing Mantua and returning to Verona, nobody was conscious of the fact that he was back. In Baz Luhrmann's movie, a search party was after him. The prince is represented as the chief of police. In the play Romeo kills Paris and his servant. However, in the contemporary film, a blameless bystander is killed. While in the tomb with Juliet, Romeo places a ring on her finger. This detail does not occur in the play. While Romeo is telling Juliet his final goodbye, her finger starts to twitch. Just as Romeo is taking the poison, which he bought with dollar bills not gold, Juliet wakes up and sees her lover die. This is a dramatic modification to the text. Juliet then kills herself with a pistol instead of a dagger. Lady ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The ostentatious scenery that was used to mount the film and to narrate for us the catastrophe happened with luxury of detail. This film also tells about an exciting and classic love story between two young people from different social classes, which in my opinion was the point that attracted that much public to love this film.

The director mounts the scene of this story in all detail, carrying out extensive research on what happened the night the ship crashed against an iceberg, he also spent a large amount of money to recreate every detail. A wonderful love story between two young people who were forbidden to be together because of their different social classes. Rose (Kate Winslet) is an upper–class young woman who is forced by her mother to get marry Caledon Hockley, a prominent businessman with whom Rose's family was to maintain high–class status. During this trip Rose meets a young painter (Jack Dawson) who lived with very little in his pockets, he is a free soul who travels and knows the world thanks to his talent with painting. This boy managed to captivate the young girl, because in him, she found a way out, something different from what she used to live with. This is how this love story begins to become one of the most successful films.

Rhetorical Analysis Of Leonardo Dicaprio's Speech Rhetorical Analysis of Leonardo DiCaprio's Speech As debates surrounding climate change have grown in recent times, especially with Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, many environmentalists have evidently viewed his deed as a call to action. In today's world, environmental change has been glossed over simply for the fact that some disagree upon its existence. In turn, other well known figures have taken matters into their own hands; as a strong believer in climate change himself, famous actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio gave a powerful speech in front of the United Nations (UN) Climate summit. Through use of the rhetorical triangle, the three appeals, the patterns of development, and SOAPSTone, DiCaprio presents his speech effectively to his audience. DiCaprio includes several appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos throughout his speech to convey that environmental problems need resolution. Although he is not a scientist, DiCaprio builds his ethos through saying, "I am not a scientist, but I don't need to be." He recognizes that resolving environmental damage doesn't have to fall in the hands of only the science community. Therefore, he takes initiative by presenting himself as a concerned human being with only the thought of making the Earth cleaner. Additionally, he uses logos by stating not only facts but also bringing attention to information that should already be obvious. After talking about way to improve our environment through economy, he states, "The economy will die if our ecosystems collapse." As the economy relies on the environment for it's resources that later facilitate trade, only a healthy environment can maintain a steady economy. In addition, DiCaprio uses pathos throughout his speech to invoke fear and guilt. Most notably in his speech, he states, "And solving this crisis is not a question of politics. It is our moral obligation..." He points out that despite knowing the Earth is changing in a negative way, people would rather choose to fight each other instead of tackle the environmental problems themselves.

Lehane 's 10 round fights keeps throwing these punches and kicks which gives you details and time to think about what is happening, but Scorcese quickly knocks you out, which is a complete surprise. Lehane gave the characters and the plot too much detail while failing to pose the right question at the end. Just like a ten round fight, it fails to have that strong punch and leave a lasting impact; both of which are important in a psychological thriller. Shutter Island is a psychological thriller that is based on schizophrenia, a mental disorder that leads to confusion, hallucinations and false beliefs. So for the audience to truly appreciate the book or the movie, they have to feel confused and fail to realize what is real. Scorcese manages to create this mood throughout his movie, but it is most apparent during Teddy 's dream scenes. In the first dream scene Teddy is with his wife Dolores, inside a house. They are having a good time and it is bright outside, then Dolores walks away slowly and says, "You have to let me go." It starts raining leafs inside the house, it gets dark outside and when Teddy goes to hug Dolores she starts bleeding from her stomach, all the while the music in the background feels like it can belong in a wedding and in a funeral at the same time.

  • 19. Celebrities Acting with Humanism In the reading "Existentialism is a Humanism", the author Jean–Paul Sartre presents the idea of Existentialism. He introduces this idea by stating that man's plan in this world is not pre–determined, as we only determine who we are or who we want to become throughout life. Sartre states that a person is what a person does. He also uses a metaphoric scenario of a man jumping on a scene before defining himself. These two ideas imply that man has no ultimate meaning, and it is up to us to find it through experience and by taking action. Additionally, Sartre also implies that humans have a huge responsibility on becoming who they want to become as it is only up to them to do so, making us entirely responsible for our existence. Sartre states that, "when we say that man is responsible for himself, we do not mean that he is responsible for his own individuality, but that he is responsible for all men."

To grab the attention of the viewers and keep their eyes glued to the screen as the movie starts, the director uses a variety of special techniques, also to make it clear to the audience that this film is a far cry from the original dullness associated with Shakespeare play recreations. Firstly, the range of music; the booming... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... This is the thought which Baz Luhrmann wants to put into the audiences' mind for their first impression of not so "fair" Verona; so after the news report is told, the camera whizzes into the screen behind the news reader which displays a blown up petrol station, burning away as chaos fills the air. The serenade of blasting classic opera music, which is played while the images of the shocking city are presented, makes the seriousness and dramatic quality. The rapid montage of imagery adds to the rush of adrenaline that is felt when you watch this scene. A police helicopter is shown hovering unsteadily in the air. Moreover, as if it is being shot from the helicopter, bird's eye view shots are taken with speed shots– many long shots zooming into close–ups as the panoramic view of the city is previewed. It is as if Verona is being shaken by the crime when the noisy helicopter makes the camera focus shaky. The fast editing which shows us police cars, people being chased and people being injured makes the upbeat anxiety more effective. Another aspect of the opening, which I found effective, is the voice–over. Made to seem God–like, it echoes the story in brief, in a somewhat worried and disappointed tone of voice.

All of the characters presented in the movie have a distinct personality, making the viewer engage deeply in the heart pumping action and drama. But the actor is nothing without the writer, and not by any means is The Departed lacking in storyline. As you watch The Departed, Colin Sullivan (Damon) and Billy Costigan's (DiCaprio) storylines become increasingly in–depth and intertwined. Starting when Colin Sullivan is just a child and his encounter with Frank Costello's mentorship, the story then fast–forwards to Costigan and Colin working their way through police training and eventually amounting to Costigan undercover and Colin as a detective. The side by side comparison of their lives adds to distinct feelings about the characters. The two "rats" continually work against each other and narrowly miss seeing each other's faces, even dating the same girl, Madolyn (Verna Farmiga). This suspense draws watchers to the edge of their seats with anticipation for the conclusion of the movie. Phenomenal Acting and a jaw dropping storyline are the foremost reasons why The Departed is by all means a spectacular movie.

  • 22. Romeo And Juliet Analysis Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star–crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. Arguably one of his most recognisable plays, it has been performed and adapted thousands of times into films, theatre, and music, and continues to have a major impact on society today. As the play gets older, it is still being performed to modern audiences but is this play gradually becoming aged and irrelevant to the modern audience? Will it need translation into contemporary English to remain relevant? Through the theme of fate and exploring the work of the modernised film of Baz Luhrmann, we can conclude whether the traditional Romeo and Juliet will need a translation into modern English. Baz Luhrmann is the director of the modernised film Romeo and Juliet– written by Shakespeare in the 1700s. Baz Luhrmann's film interpretation of Romeo and Juliet, uses the same old English that Shakespeare's text is written in, his first scene could not be more different than the traditional opening to Romeo and Juliet. The Baz Luhrmann Version of Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' has a different setting compared to that of the play. The director had decided to modernise the whole play. By modernising the play, changes to the weapons they used, their method of transportation and their homes, were made. Instead of using swords in the play, they used guns in the movie.

These features also make the film somewhat cartoon–like with a lot of heightened realism. Don't expect to see British people prancing around in tights when you rent this one. Luhrmann creates a world where gun–toting youths sport Hawaiian shirts and beachfront brawls are an everyday event. Purists may hesitate, but the film uses its modern setting to its full potential and should be required viewing for any director who looks to put a modern spin on the 400–year– old play. Capulet and Montague become warring Mafia leaders, the Prince of Verona is a police chief trying to overcome the violence, and television anchors represent Shakespeare's traditional chorus. Other, more subtle narrative devices work equally as well. No modern audience could mistake the significance of the "attempted delivery" post–it that falls off the door, never to be found. This isn't just an update; director Baz Luhrmann has created a savvy exploitation of the film medium that assists the audience with Shakespeare's dated language. Giving the classic play this modern twist makes for a new understanding of the text and brings the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets to a whole new, dramatic level.

Scorsese has also directed "Goodfellas" and "The Departed," which both proved him to be a brilliant director.

Belfort, at this moment, portrays that his innocence is still in tact by refusing a lunchtime martini and hoping that he can be profitable for both the clients and himself. On October 19, 1987, or Black Monday, the stock market crashed and left Belfort without a job. As he said, "Wall Street had swallowed me up, and shit me back out." Belfort eventually took a job at small investor business where he sold penny stocks. The penny stocks allowed Belfort to make $72,000 in one month! How you may be asking? The blue chip stocks he was selling at the large firm only resulted in a 1% commission, while the penny stocks were 50%. Belfort used his smooth talking to talk poor shmucks into investing a few thousand dollars and he was able to pocket half. From there Belfort opened his own business, Stratton Oakmont, with his neighbor Donnie Azoff. Rather than continue selling to the poor, Belfort targeted the richest of the rich and would open up with the blue chip stocks, and then give the clients the penny stocks, where stockbroker's earned the money. Stratton Oakmont continued to grow and eventually made it to Wall Street.

  • 40. Inception Everyday new movies are made within the world with amazing cinematography, music, sound, and actors. By far, Inception is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen.

Where as extraction is placing a thought in the mind in a dream. Throughout Inception, Cobb's team builds dreams and within those dreams there are levels. In the movie, they are trying to go three levels deep within one dream. In the beginning of the movie, they start off with Cobb, the main character who wants to see his children but is unable to, laying on the beach. It is intriguing because no one knows...

When an important or scary scene would be approaching, the music would get louder to let the watchers know that an important event is about to occur. The acting of Leonardo DiCaprio, also known as Cobb, is amazing. The way he fills the dream with his subconscious is one of his best traits in the movie. Ellen Page, who is Ariadne the new architect in the movie, is also an exceptional actor. They way she builds the dream to make it look so realistic is mind–blowing to me. When she made the town flip over itself in the movie, I was in shock to see the level of intelligence that one can have by setting their mind to it. In the end, when Cobb is with his children and he spins the top to see if he is in a dream or not, they cut it off so that way you can imagine if it would fall or keep spinning. I thought that scene was one of the most enticing scenes I have ever watched in any movie. It made me want to watch an Inception 2, even though that's not a real movie. In the end, I would like to believe that the top would fall over so that way Cobb and his children being reunited would be real and not in a dream. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into movies about going into the minds of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
