After reading the book “The Guide to Rational Living” by Albert Ellis,write a movie review reaction paper.
Write a paper that explains the role of movie theaters and scifi movies on American culture with a focus on star wars.
Provide a book / Movie Review on “Birdman”
Pick one of the films assigned, thus far, and then select at least three of the given reviews of that film. What do these reviews
criticize? What do they praise? What do they focus on? What do they ignore? Students should synthesize the answers to these questions and add some of their own thoughts.
Remember to avoid more than one brief paragraph of summary. An introduction with a thesis and conclusion are required. For this essay, do not use any sources beyond the filmic text and reviews. This paper should not specifically take a position—be informative, show contrasting perspectives—outside of brief comments (no more than 20 percent of the paper) about the student’s own thoughts.
Create a movie review on “How To Kill a Mockingbird” and relate to our lives and what can it teach us about society.
1. Watch the YouTube video at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE2dDmMGfa4&t=249s. This is a compilation of two different stagings of the Troy-Cory exchange in Fences, 1.3 (“How come you ain’t never liked me?”). The first staging features James Earl Jones as Troy, the second Denzel Washington.
2. Take some notes on each version:
How do the actors play their roles, speak their dialogue, and /or invest their characters with humanity? Volume, pitch, body language, posture, etc…?
How do you react to each version-what emotional responses are set up, and especially how?
Then, using your notes and observations, compose a response of 2 to 2 1/2 which compares and analyzes each version. What is noteworthy and/or different about these?
The goal of this response is to encourage you to consider this play (and, in turn, language and art) as a living creation beyond the page. Actors, producers, set designers, lighting designers, and many others collaborate in order to bring a play to life, so compose your writing with this in mind. Use quotes and specific instances as necessary to help support your response. Remember, too, this is interpretation.
Watch “Little Miss Sunshine” from 2006 and identify how the ecological systems model appears in the movie.This can be through the behavior or verbal expression of a character or an event that occurs in the movie. So describe the event and how it manifests in the film.
Discuss the relationship between love and hate in Othello movie (1995 version).
Give an overview of the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1Gs3vOGoVg.
