  1. Analysis of the cover of Kerrang magazine.

    is being placed in a position that they might be trying to reach the audience-listen to them. The banner headline in the front page represents the band using the blue background which represent coldness and ice-ness (toughness) that the band have. The contents page shows some continuity in the style that had been used for the front page i.e. Banner headline. What I personally like about the contents page that there is a 'hidden index' as 'This week' has a particular colour , font and fill that had been used for the some headings for this week and I think that's a very clever technique

  2. Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows film review

    A vast conspiracy is beginning, thanks to the great mathemation Professor Moriarty. The apparent aim of this criminal mind is to make himself rich through establishing himself in many different industries, through any means necessary. But while the intrigue of this film is persuasive and related to the politics, that were around at the end of the century as well as the exaggerated literature of the explosion to immediately interest the audience and showing them the amount of action they are about to see, from fights on trains and complicated battles that results in the world war that Holmes is desperate to avert.

  3. Semiotic Analysis of an advertisement. Xeryus Rouge a fragrance for men by Givenchy.

    The position of the couple; their nudity and physical contact are further signifiers of both the theme of the advert and the sexuality of the male subject which leads me to apply Goffman?s theory; here the male subject is shown to be dominant as he is the one shown in control of the situation whilst the female model is portrayed in a sexual, reclining position with her head thrown back in a plateau of joy, she has a ?chocolate

  4. Coronation Street clearly fits the genre of a soap opera

    Stations came up with the idea of drama serials that centred on the home and various domestic situations. They were immediately successful. This is where the name soap opera originates from. 'Soap' because they were sponsored by soap and 'opera' because they were dramatic. In America after the war radio soap operas started becoming less popular and people were turning to the new invention of the television. Due to soaps being so popular on the radio before the TV was invented it was decided that soaps should be transferred to television. Coronation Street is a popular soap opera with an average audience of eight million (BARB figure)

  5. "Psycho". Explore a range of devices in this film that Hitchcock employed in establishing the horror genre.

    Firstly let?s take a look at the parlour scene; this is a great example of the devices Hitchcock uses. The scene begins with what appears to be an innocent invitation from Norman to Marion Crane, the unsuspecting guest at the Bates Motel, in the parlour itself, Hitchcock begins his work. The room is small, barely big enough for the two chairs, the lamp table, coffee table, and chest that occupy it. On the lamp table is a lamp, which is the only source of light in the room and thus the key light within the scene. The characters' positions within the room and how they are lit by this single source of light shows the audience Hitchcock?s characterizations.

  6. Investigate How Far The Twilight Film Poster Conforms To The Horror Genre.

    side of his small rounded bald head, and huge fangs, it?s obvious he isn?t human, even though its a silent film, you know who the vampire is. In contrast Bram Stokers Dracula from 1992, the vampire looks a lot more human, but he still stands out wearing a big top hat and bold clothes, a blank expression and the typical use of black and red too you know he?s a vampire but he?s less suspecting than the Nosfeteratu vampire. Although it?s seventy years on, some of the same iconography is used.

  7. The film The Outsiders has three main heroes; Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, and Matt Dillon.

    Ponyboy?s role in The Outsiders was great and the film portrayed his character very well. For example, in the fountain scene, his emotions and body language expressed a lot of worry, and it was very believable. Thomas Howell also did very well in the scene where Darry hits Pony, and he runs away. This scene was especially realistic, again because of his body language and emotions. Overall, the producers did pretty well in representing Ponyboy?s character; however, they did even better at Johnny?s character.

  8. "The Others". Through close observation of Alejandro Amenabars direction, discuss how cinematography, characterisation, setting and narrative sequence help build suspense throughout.

    Grace is narrating the story of creation from the bible. The narration is of her talking to her children Nicholas and Anne. At first there is a close up of the sun, and then it zooms out (reverse zoom) so that you could see the whole page/ area. The book is lit up by a lamp as the kids are photosensitive. In addition, because of how it is lit, you think that the movie will be set a long time ago.

  9. Luhrmann vs Zefirelli - comparing the film versions of "Romeo and Juliet".

    The Zeffirelli version took place in the city of Verona. While the Luhrmann version took place on Verona Beach. Both were good settings for the play because they both pointed out the ways of life in the time period that the director wanted to display the film. The 1967 movie showed what the times were like in the period that Shakespeare lived. In the 1997 film Luhrmann showed the way people live in the present days. The dialogue in both of the versions was based on the dialogue that Shakespeare used when he wrote the play.

  10. Remember the Titans film - Analyse how techniques were used in important moments or scenes to make you respond emotionally.

    They are sitting on opposite sides of the shot, facing each other like adversaries. Dividing them is a path running between them up towards a big traditional-style door to the centuries-old buildings of Gettysburg College. This path represents the tradition of racism in America between blacks and whites all the way back to slave-ownership times that divides Alan and Petey in present day, 1971. This camera shot is combined with dialogue which is impersonal, defensive and suspicious. It is more ?interview style? than a conversation between team-mates and this illustrates how little they know or understand about each other?s background.

    There are small rocks, large rocks and dead shrubs covering the ground. The slogan on the ad is ?Carry more stuff.?

  12. Moulin Rouge - Mock-newspaper film review

    Shades of brown and black are used while writer Christian explores empty streets of his previous home, London, but colors fly as he reaches Paris. The nightclub in particular overwhelms viewers with color, dance and song, all blended in; the camera spinning and spinning to create the flurry of movement. This creates a good representation of how a Bohemian place like Paris would be to Christian, who was initially withheld in conformist London.

  13. Review of "v for vendetta"

    Once the masked people showed that they were not afraid anymore, the government lost their power to rule. Having the masses of people at the bottom in the poster helps suggest that this is a film on political revolution as suggested by the image of people uprising against a background of a city, the city here represents a local government that the masses of people are protesting against. The text `freedom' and `forever' emblazoned in red against the masked figure suggests he and the masses of people are together involved in a fight for freedom against the local government V is the protagonist and is a lone freedom fighter in totalitarian Britain, who is always shown wearing a cape and a Guy Fawkes mask.
