The Dark Night Film Analysis

Improved Essays
The Dark Night trilogy set the gold standard for the characters Batman, and the Joker. Every casual movie goer or critic would tell you that the most recent portrayal of each of these characters isn’t as good as the Dark Night Trilogy characters. With the flop of Man of Steel, and Batman vs. Super Man, Warner Brothers, the company making DC films, wanted to take a lot of control away from directors, and unfortunately the first movie to take such directions was 2016’s “Suicide Squad” by David Ayer, produced by Warner Brothers Studios. This movie was ultimately a letdown to many people including myself, but it doesn’t take away from the movie still being good. The bar was set so high there was no possible way to meet it, let alone beat it, and thus it left some distaste in people’s mouths. Overall, this movie was a decent summer …show more content…
Though criticism isn’t necessarily good, it showed the brilliance of one of the best characters in the film, Harley Quinn. This is the first time the DC extended universe has ever had Harley on the big screen, and Margot Robbie shined as her. Harley’s backstory is more developed than most, making her more developed character than all of them, except maybe Dead Shot. Harley Quinn was always a much loved character in the DC fandoms. This love of Harley prompted her to have a successful debut on the big screen, and she did not disappoint. With catchy lines like “We’re bad guys, that’s what we do,” and “Puddin,’” she was both a very funny character and a relatable one with her playful demeanor. She was important to the plot, was both funny and endearing, and created a legitimate big screen version for Harley in which will be looked to on how to play her well. She was incredibly on her own, but what makes her even better is her dynamic with both the Joker and Dead

    However, there is this one underrated actress that truly deserves to be recognized because of her pure talent and skills. British actress, Emily Blunt, is one of the greatest versatile actress of this generation, she can be a good and a bad girl, in rom-coms, thriller, fantasy, action, sci-fi, and musical of course. However, she doesn't get enough credit, like on her performance in the film, Devil Wears Prada, where she portrayed the ambitious and snotty secretary of Meryl Streep’s character. She also did an incredible job in the sci-fi film, Edge of Tomorrow, alongside Tom Cruise, and of course in the musical film, Into the Woods. She has yet to impress the entire Hollywood silver screen with her amazing skills when it comes to being a talented…

    Days Of Heaven Analysis

    It to me, was like the a stereotypical cheerleader, very pretty and fun to look at but nothing deeper than that, only surface deep. The visual techniques used in the movie were spectacular, and I do think it would have been quite more enjoyable with a better story line but produced with the same artistry. The term ‘lila’ is what I feel directly reflects Days of heaven. The artistry behind the picture has a sense of divinity, perfection. I must admit that this film has to be one of the most beautiful pictures I have watched in a long time.…

    The Dark Knight There are few films that bring out the inner hero in people or simply the desire to do good, other than those about super heroes. The Dark Knight is no exception to the rule, as Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) also known as Batman is face to face with his greatest enemy the ever the sinister Joker (Heath Ledger). The director Christopher Nolans film adaptation on the Batman has a much darker and moral tone than others before it. From the dark streets of Gotham, the fictitious city the film takes place in, to the cynical humor of the Joker and the care free mentality of the cities criminals. I believe that anyone that is a fan of super hero films, or crime films, will find it to be a very tasteful and well-made film.…

    The Giver: Book Vs. Movie

    While “The Giver,” is not a true story, it is an excellent example for this. The book, as many have read, is not like the movie. Or shall I say, the movie is not like the book. It was exaggerated to gain more interest, to make it more appealing on the big screen and to wrap it up in the time they are allowed to use for the film. If every book, that became a movie, was followed exactly in film as it did in writing, there would be multiple films for one story.…

    Beauty Regina is beautiful, and she knows it. Unapologetically proud of her assets and talents, this girl was not afraid to show-off what she has got. Calling her an airhead may not be a surprise, however, during the latter part of her segment, she raised controversial questions regarding gender roles. Although it was easy to laugh at her for questioning gender equality and how she was so against it, in a way, she was able to make sense for she blamed and…

    Despite the bad reviews, Beineix’s third project, ‘37º2 le matin’ (1876) had the same influence and cult-film effect on the youth culture in France and internationally as ‘Diva’ had. This was mainly due to Beatrice Dalle’s unanticipated performance where she managed to flawlessly capture the perfect combination of innocence and rebelliousness characteristic of 1980’s youth Zeitgeist as well as portraying an “icon of femininity in the 1980s” (Wilson,…

    Since her debut, Jane Austen has proven to be one of the most influential authors of all time. Because of the success of her novel, Pride and Prejudice, many producers in the entertainment industry took the original concept and adapted it to appeal to different audiences of today. These adaptations have proven profoundly successful in reaching both Jane Austen fans and the general public. In an attempt to analyze the techniques of adapting one of Austen’s novels, I created my own pastiche. Although my scene treatment, Deep Thoughts, limited the audience to understanding only the similar events of chapter 54, there are several changes I made for my adaptation in the novel as a whole.…

    Henrietta Leavitt was played by Katie Piper, Margaret Leavitt was played by Sarah Lambert, Peter Shaw was played by Morgan Gates, Annie Cannon was played by Julia Whalen, and Williamina Fleming was played by Beth Ryan. All of the actors were convincing of the roles they played, and I didn’t dislike any of the actors. Having to choose one favorite actor or character from this play is very difficult, but my favorite actor would be Ms. Ryan, who played the character Williamina Fleming. She was my favorite actor because she portrayed her character the best and she was convincing of her part in the play. I liked that she had a very comical part in the play too.…
