BowFinger
BowFinger is a movie that sets out to give the audience a good laugh and to also dispel the rumors about the Hollywood life styles. Steve Martin does this by showing us how a movie gets produced and how difficult and time consuming it can be. He also shows us how ridiculous and out of control it can get. This movies job was to entertain us and even though it started off slow and I barely laughed at the beginning when things started to move I was having a good time. BowFinger is a good movie that is very original with comedy with great characters and an excellent plot.
The main character Bobby Bow finger played by Steve Martin is extremely eager to direct a film and gain recognition as a talented film producer. He’s a fast talking, very sneaky and determined person who wants to accomplish his dream of being recognized in Hollywood. At the beginning of the film he takes advantage of his friends and co-workers so that he can make his movie but as things go on he shows how much he cares about them and how important they are to him. Steve Martin is an excellent actor when I was watching this movie I didn’t see Steve Martin playing as someone and that takes a lot of talent to be able to perform like that. Also, he directed the actual movie BowFinger while

    With this tactic I believe that Charlie increased his audience’s anticipation which influenced them to love him and his work even more. Wilson says that one factor that could have put a hold on the release of Modern Times was because Chaplin was not an experienced scriptwriter. In most of his film Charlie creates as he goes but in this film in particular he decided to create his own script in hopes to reduce time and production costs. Interestingly, Laoghaire says that not being an experienced script writer could affect his chances of being a great all around filmmaker. He says…

    Now sometimes these movies can be great, but often times the film is mediocre or even terrible. Classifying movies into three distinct categories, fantastic, mediocre, and terrible, can help people everywhere determine what movies they need to watch. Motion pictures are a great way to entertain company. Fantastic movies need a great storyline, realistic visual effects, and suitable actors. I believe that in order to have a successful movie, it needs an easy to follow yet mind blowing storyline.…

    A message like I said before it 's the impact the movie has on the audience it does not matter what it is it just has to make the audience open there mind to new possibilities. The message or the life lesson in the movie can determine a good movie from a great movie. To name a few movies with great messages: The messages behind these movies are my opinion: Pulp Fiction: The message behind this movie is that No matter how evil you are you can change your mind on how you see things because of one life threatening event in a span of a day and a cup of coffee. The Pursuit of Happiness:Based on a true story this movie gives you the meaning of “down in the dumps” and motivates you to keep on fighting for you and your loved ones for a good future. I could go on and on but what I am trying to establish here is that a great movie needs a great message.…

    The acting is impressive, the screenplay structurally fascinating, and the directing technically astute. Nevertheless, at least partly because of the movie itself, I could not engage with the emotional heart of the story, a definite weakness of any film. I did feel some twinges of emotion (“why do I fall in love with every woman I see who shows me the least bit of attention?”), but they were clearly not as powerful as they were supposed to be. As such Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind represents a movie that intrigued my brain but not my…

    She begins by talking about the background of the Holocaust itself and she commends Steven Spielberg for doing a great job at portraying such a controversial topic like the Holocaust. Afterwards, she makes the point of how much of a dark tale Schindler's List is, which is to be expected with such a topic. She writes how the film's plot is a story of triumph over evil and how the main strength of the film is in its pragmatism. She writes how the use of unfamiliar actors and versatile black-and-white cinematography can draw the audience into the film. She writes how well Oskar Schindler is presented as well as how the other actors perform throughout the film.…

    Red Eye Film Analysis

    Red Eye is quite possibly my favorite non-slasher from Wes Craven. It's full of suspense, dread and in my opinion some of the best acting to come out of 2005. Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy carry this film on pure chemistry and intensely memorable performances that linger after viewing, coupled with Wes Craven's growth is a director which is very apparent when viewing this film so soon after some of his earlier works. I hadn't seen this film since the year it was released and was excited to revisit it, wondering if it would hold up and be as good as I remembered it. It was.…

    The story is original for a superhero-movie. Normal superheroes are famous and popular in the start, and Hancock is hated for the first hour of movie.

Location, scenes: Overal, the film is pretty good filmed with good special effects, I have not much other things saying about the film.

    There was uncertainty throughout the film that kept the audience guessing on how the story would unfold. Hitchcock used his directing style and artistry to create a since of mystery around the plot and the actors helped to enhance it with their dialogue. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film and I look forward to viewing more films directed by Alfred Hitchcock and more films with Grace Kelly in them. This Hitchcock movie was simple but very calculated. This film kept me guessing on whether or not Stewart was delusional or maybe he was right.…
