Days Of Heaven Analysis

Improved Essays
The film I have been assigned is called “Days of heaven” and it was directed by Terrence Malick. Days of heaven was released September 13th, 1978. I wasn’t very fond of Days of heaven, because although the art and scenery of the movie are well crafted that is not all it takes for a movie to be perceived as good. Unfortunately, due to the lack of dullness of the story itself I cannot acclaim Days of heaven a good movie. The film in my personal opinion is very bland and boring, despite the beautiful scenery and clips, which I must add can get a bit repetitive. The love story is cute, but it is not strong enough to carry a continuing focus for the, often times I was easily distracted, which is why I can’t quite say that I like the film. Nevertheless, the films artwork and scenery are fantastic and should be praised for that factor solely in my opinion. On that note, Days of heaven hold five important features in my opinion, these features represent the ideal I declare most relevant about this movie; the beauty and artistry depicted in the film. The first term is kick off, this term means the beginning of photography in a film, in my opinion Days of heaven began …show more content…
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. Unfortunately though, the filmed possessed ‘lila’ in the cinematographic aspect, but not it was nowhere near godly or original in the storyline which I feel can be revised

    Mediocre films are much weaker in their storyline compared to fantastic movies. Decent motion pictures often times are easy to follow along with the plot, but they are missing the mind blowing factor. For example, Something Borrowed was a mediocre film because it never had the mind-boggling moment. This movie was very easy to follow along with, which is why I consider it mediocre. Now obviously the visual effects in mediocre films are not as strong as those in fantastic movies.…

    I felt as if the producers over used dramatic sound effects to make up for the lack of dialogue which again in turn made the film seem cliche and not very funny at all. I am the type of person to find nearly everything funny except when it is tried too hard to be funny. Also, I felt as if the sole purpose of all silent films were to be funny and had no real plot. This film had just the right amount of comedy, some parts were funny but it had a real plot. The comedic parts tied in well with the plot.…

    In any case, there are an excess of thoughts here for a film with such scrappy, one-dimensional characters. It's a disgrace to some degree, as a portion of the acting is really great. But what was frustrating to me was the utilization of the environment. We're on the Bahama's, for the love of all that is pure and holy, one of the assumed extraordinary…

    It doesn’t matter if you are a women or men, as human beings we all enjoy the feeling of being loved and cared for. Romance films give you satisfying feelings and bring you hope that one day you will have the relationship of your dreams. Unfortunately, realistically it is almost impossible to find a love like the protagonist in the films. Which is why people are starting to believe romantic comedies are harmful, because it has the power to present a fairy tale life that is not realistic. However, this is a fake accusation aside of the romantic films being fiction most of its plots are realistic which is why people enjoy the films because they relate to things.…

    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…

    The Great Gatsby is truly an enjoyable film. Having previously read the book, I had little expectations due to the letdown movies such as this typically have. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The cast was certainly great, the spectacle was certainly impressive, and if nothing else it was a fun movie. Of course the story itself is an excellent one, but what truly makes The Great Gatsby so enjoyable is the variety of characters, and certainly the complexity to them.…

    Film Analysis Ida

    In short, it is a very good performance. Of course, people don’t remember “Ida” for its acting, but for its Oscar-nominated cinematography by Ryszard Lenczweski and Lukasz Zal. This facet is probably tied with Kulesza’s performance as the best part of the film. It is shot mostly in long shots and long takes, with minimal camera movement and compositions that often place characters at the bottom of the screen. The interesting angles and compositions constantly keep the viewers on their toes in an attempt to figure out the meaning of these images.…

    While the movie may not have been laid out in the best ways, Starnes is able to convey the summary in a well-written manner. In conclusion, this specific review over The Time Travelers Wife written by Joshua Starnes is an extremely poorly written review. The fact that Starnes was able to go into good detail about the overall summary of the movie was one thing that did, in fact, add to the value of the review. On the other hand, because he did not write at an adequate enough length to discuss the movie well enough, failed to discuss any of the actors and their acting quality except for one, and because he just did not add in many details about any of the movie-making aspects, this is an overall very poor…

    The old style picture might be difficult for some viewer’s because they are accustom to high definition and colored pictures like modern productions, but once you give it a chance, your opinion might change. I personally am acclimated to old style film and thought it added suspense and dramatic effect with still incorporating several good laughs. It is neither too long nor too short and are not any identifiable drawn out or pointless scenes. All scenes throughout the film have relevance to the design of the story and include details of importance. My favorite element of the film would be the music because the dramatic instrumental music fit the emotional tone of the film.…

    Though his performance may not have been as heart moving as the romantic moments between Leonardo Di Caprio (Jay Gatsby) and Carrey Mulligan (Daisy Buchannan), his ability to give Fitzgerald’s Nick Carraway life through his actions were better than past attempts and by far the best embodiment. Despite critical reviews on Luhrmann’s adaptation of the text being poor in terms of the actors bringing to life the characters, it is clear to see that Leonardo Di Caprio, Carrey Mulligan, Toby Maguire, Joel Edgerton (Tom Buchannan), and Isla Fisher (Jordan Baker) significantly added to the lure of the film, gave life and added to the imagination used bythe characters in the…
