  • Stereotypes In The Film And Musical

    Belle first song- The first scene in the movie and musical is in a small French Village far in the past. The little town has lovey one minded people singing the first song “Belle.” This is the first time the audience meets Belle as she is going to get another book from the bookshop. The audience sees the Disney basic princesses as “she is fair skinned with straight long hair and wide eyes. She is skinny, with a tiny waist and delicate hands. Her voice is charming and she sings beautifully,” (An Analysis of Stereotypes). She looks like she fits in very well into the town and the social norms of the town. The interactions of the town’s people show just how artificial the town really is. The towns have small talk and ask ‘how are you?’ The people do not like that she is…

  • A Dancer In The Dark Analysis

    I am critiquing the film “Dancer in the Dark.” I have seen this movie twice, once on my own in October and again with my family in November. I chose this movie because it is on a list of sad movies I got from YouTube that I peruse when I am in the mood. I watched this movie alone, in my dorm room, on my laptop. The watching process was very smooth and pleasant. I did not have any distractions or interruptions and it streamed perfectly. Towards the end of the film I was so frustrated and…

  • Singin In The Rain Critique

    The musical Singin’ In The Rain was an enjoyable experience that had myself laughing and following along with the classical music hits.

The characters in The Importance of Being Earnest, especially Lady Bracknell, mock the snobbism of the upper…

  • Broadway Vs Hollywood Movies Essay

    While most films offer a sort of distraction from reality, musicals are often a utopia of wealth and happiness (Belton, 2009). Through dazzling song and dance, they make routine look like pageantry and loneliness feel like individuality. Even the most conservative of musicals transform the everyday into a spectacle, transitioning dramatic tensions into a melodic fanfare.

  • Singin In The Rain Analysis

    I’m going to start off by saying Singin’ in the Rain is hands down one of my favorite musicals and that my opinion of this film is probably highly biased.

It’s not an overly vibrant film but the use of bright colors throughout the film emphasizes the glamour of Hollywood, which is a large component of this film. The colors also add a dreamlike…
