For Those Who Wonder if “Alice in Wonderland” is Worth Watching
Tim Burton’s“Alice in Wonderland” was probably the most anticipated movie of the year 2010. But is it any good? First of all, I should probably mention that hardcore Lewis Carroll fans may find very disappointing. The movie is merely based on the book. It features most of the same characters and a couple of the same locations, but the story is completely different. Alice is no longer a little girl, but an unconventional young woman who has the same dream of finding herself in Wonderland every night, until one day it happens in real life. Her arrival was expected. Alice is supposed to save the inhabitants from the evil Red Queen and get the reign back to her kind sister, the White Queen. She knows nothing about it, but she is meant to be the knight in shining armor, both figuratively and literally speaking.
Essay on Cinema
Cinema is a relatively new alternative to the theatre and other performance-based entertainments. Cinematography, however, has much longer history and has already evolved a lot during the last fifty years. The history of movies goes back to centuries from today. It started with motion pictures and, mostly as a part of social gatherings, such as carnivals and festivals, slowly started to gain its importance in the world of communication and entertainment. The twenty first century gave bigger spin to the cinematography and made it a part of advertisement practices and mass media.
Negative Effect of Media Violence
Media is a powerful instrument of control, which influences the people’s behavior and is perfect in creating the so called “crowd thinking”. This term was created to define the way mass media sources influence behavior, mentality and tastes on conceptual level. For example, how many of us buy some product in shops just because you have seen it being advertised on TV or radio? Or how many times have your behavior been influenced by news or TV show?
Beautiful Mind is a biographical movie about John Forbes Nash junior, mathematical genius with hard fate. At the beginning of his career he has made enormous contribution in the field of Game Theory, which was a revolution in this mathematical area and almost brought international fame to the author. The movie was filmed in 2001 by Ron Howard and today it is called modern classics: a true drama, making you think and evoking emotions.
Such movies, telling us about the life of a famous person, are always difficult to assess, because any such creations somehow pretend to be biographical ones. But in fact they are just a glance of one particular producer on the life of another individual. Of course, much depends on the actor who will perform the role of the protagonist and after watching Beautiful Mind I will agree with this once again.
