What Makes Mediocre Movies

Improved Essays
Entertainment plays an important role in people 's lives. New movies are constantly being released, whether it is in theaters or on DVD. Personally, I am a movie fanatic. I love spending my time and money to watch the latest flick. 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. If movies get to

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. There still needs to be some sort of visual effect, even if it’s not very good. Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed is one of my favorite movies, but I consider it mediocre because the visual effects are unrealistic. Not all films can afford the best actors. George of the Jungle 2 hired a different actor to play the main role of George. The new actor did a decent job, but because he was so different than the original actor it made it very hard to like the movie. A plot, somewhat interesting visual effects and decent actors make a mediocre …show more content…
Movies are constantly being created just to satisfy the need for entertainment. Motion pictures can be fantastic, mediocre, or just terrible. I love to watch any type of film, but fantastic movies are my absolute favorite. The storyline in these movies is incredible because they keep viewers on their toes anticipating what is going to happen next. With today’s technology, visual effects are looking very realistic. Big time actors can improve the movie. Fantastic, mediocre, and terrible are three very distinct categories that movies can be classified into to help people determine what movies they need to

    The Legend of Tarzan was entertaining to a degree. The cinematography was fantastic! Though the CGI lacked at times, the sumptuous and breathtaking scenery made up for that. I would have enjoyed seeing more action sequences as the story can be very drawn out. I understand that establishing the plot is important, but too much plot development can lead to a super serious and/or boring movie.…

    Days Of Heaven Analysis

    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 other notable here is Googy Gress playing the villain of the piece Foster Cotton. Gress doesn’t actually fight the preposterous nature of the story, he dives in head first, and benefits from it. That’s the problem with the other actors who NIGHTMARE CODE has an original and somewhat refreshing story, but lacks a sense of fear or tension because of the filmmaking choices made. It’s a subpar debut for director Mark Netter, but there’s still promise in the enticing stories he could bring to the…

    Dogma 95 Movie Analysis

    The actors where supposed to act on their own behalf because they did not get very clear instructions, neither did the cameraman. The camera should react on instinct and not be prepared to the very next move of the protagonist. The movie did not follow the Dogma 95 rules, but still was imperfect in many ways. Without following the strict rules von Trier had much more freedom to make the movie to his own vision of imperfection. With positive ratings from imdb6, rottentomatoes7 and metacritic8 Melancholia was very well received.…

    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.…

    That makes the movie more interesting, but it is a little harder to put together because it jumps from a lot of places. The language choice of the movie more funny then serious. This is a movie that make the audience laugh and have a great time. They also have a lot of music in this movie which makes the movie even more interesting. Most of this music was really good too.…

    I like the movies direction it has a strong base, but the transitions between many of the confusing stories are ruff. I like the beginning and ending because the movie is many different pieces but comes as one in the end. This movie breaks the 4th wall many times. The actors in the film talk like were a movie and they 're watching us. I think that 's kind of cool if you look that it from other perspectives.…

    These can be easily identified because of the way the movie flows, the placement of important details.Being able to see is much easier to comprehend than to read sometimes. After watching the movie it felt more dramatic, then finishing the book. Putting things to film and spicing it up with good actors/actresses, using good choices of dialogue and dialogue placement, and having the character seem more realistic makes any book into an award winning…

    Both films have a different cinematic style. For the original, I have a feeling like the filmmaker didn’t do it well on lighting. Most of the time, scenes looked dark, low contrast, and underexposed, but even it is lack of lighting, it does enhance viewers sensation of frighten. In contrast of that, the new version had done a better job on lighting up scenes than the original. The film has more contrast.…
