“We live in a box of space and time. Movies are windows in its walls. They allow us to enter other minds, not simply in the sense of identifying with the characters, although that is an important part of it, but by seeing the world as another person sees it.” - Roger Ebert. Each and everyone of us love movies, whether it’s romantic or thriller. We have been touched by movies or relate to movies, which is why we hold them close to us. But for a movie to catch our attention, it has to have the type of qualities we are looking for and it has to satisfy our standards. People can also have different critereons they look for when watching a movie.

This film is about a girl named Baby and her family go to a summer camp, and Baby starts falling for the dancing instructor Johnny Castle.One main reason has to be because of the music in this movie. Romantic movies or any movie in particular has to have the right song in the right scene. If there is a song playing in a movie and it doesn’t suit to what’s transpiring in the movie, it’ll come off distracting and can ruin the scene. My favorite music scene from this movie was when Johnny was teaching Baby dance moves and the song Hungry Eyes was playing. This song went with the scene so well, another song being used would be doing the unthinkable. Another movie that has a good music is the film One Fine Day. This movie is about two divorcees Jack and Melanie who take care of each others kids and end up getting to know each other along the way. My most perferred song in this movie has to be Mama Said. This song gives us more story to the movie, like most well songs

    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.…

    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.…

    For this assignment I chose to watch the musical movie Rock of Ages. This movie is high energy and has fun and frisky choreography. With professional dancer Julianne Hough as our leading lady in the film it is tough not to get caught up in how the movement tells the story. After watching it I did realize there were several moments where they stopped dancing and that seemed to work for the story as well. From the start we get the urge to move with the opening song Paradise City.…
