The Lord of the Ring!

Actually i don’t like the books because i’ve never tried to read them because of the small size of the letters, but i watched the films, and i think that there are no better films than the Lord of the Ring trilogy. The project is considered as one of the most ambitious in the history of the cinema. The special effects during the epic battles are just huge, i will always remember legolas’s acrobatic movements to jump on an Oliphant and kill him (oliphant= creature) and what can i say about the epic places in which the film is turning  Minas tirth, the dark door,mordor …etc. there are such a list of creatures like orcs, the uruk-hai, the nazgul and many others the design is also something important for the production of the film each folk has specific elements,the music is also something important in the movie because it plunges us in it. The three films were a great commercial success, bringing total nearly three billion dollars.

 

it is a film that you have to see and if you haven’t seen it what are you waiting for go and watch it you will not regret it!

Into the wild

I saw a big part of that film at school last year, it is an adaptation of the  non fiction book of the same name written by jon Krakauer in 1996. The plot is about a young american  student named Christopher McCandless who has obtained his degree and is destined for a great future but he will blow it all away, because he rejects the society, so he abandones the american dream for an adventurous life. The scene i remember the most, is the scene when he is in the restaurant with his family after having his degree. When his father proposes to buy him a new car, Christopher refuses and says « what’s wrong with my old car, i don’t want a new car » this scene really presents the character of Christopher who don’t want to be a part of the society.

Sorry i have not found the restaurant scene so i picked the firs scene of the movie, i hope you wiil enjoy!

 

 

 

Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone

« Harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone » is the first episode of the Harry Potter saga to be relesead on the cinema. The books have been written by J.K  Rowling,  the first book isn’t entitled « Harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone » but « Harry Potter and the pilosopher’s stone ». This is one of the only differences between the movie and the book in this one because in the other one’s the story is not as much respected as in the first one, that’s why i only talk about the first film and not about the others. Every sceen is meticulously respected for exemple, the scene with the sorting hat who locates the first year students is totaly respected, when the hat takes his time to choose Harry’s house, he hesitated to locate him into slytherin but finally after Harry’s request the sorting hat sends him to Gryffindor.

 

Invictus

It was a film released in 2009, produced by Clint Estwood. The movie was starring Morgan freeman, Matt Damon and many other well known actors. It’s a drama film but also an history film.

This film shows us, that the sport unites everyone, that there is no differences between black and white people, that their live with the same hopes and dreams

I hope, you will like the video because i did!

 

Frankenstein: A Popular Myth

Frankenstein is a character invented  by Marry Shelley in her novel « Frankenstein or the modern Prometheus » published in 1818. Frankenstein is not only a fantastic tale, it also represents the birth of science fiction. For the first time, there is a myth that is based on scientific speculation and not only supernatural elements, contrary to other monsters, like vampires or werewolves, the monster is made by a scientist called Victor Frankenstein, in a laboratory . The author refers  to scientific experiments of her time on electricity. Mary Shelley’s novel, has achieved success quickly. This led other artists and writers working for the entertainment industry to adapt the novel with more or less fidelity. Hundreds of plays, dozens of movies, comics, cartoons, video games, novels, etc.. continues to the perpetuation of the myth of Frankenstein in the common imagination.

Here we have a video which shows, some scenes of the Frankenstein play.

 

Carrie Horror or Drama

It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1974 novel of the same name. The movie contrary to the novel is not circled around the religious aspect but it circles around what can happen if you push someone to an extreme. And that’s what happens at the end of the movie when everyone is laughting at her at the ball, she cannot control her power anymore because she has accumulated too much hatred and is consumed by it so that she can’t control herself anymore.

 

The Hobbit Magic Effects

The Hobbit, is a film co written fantasy saga, produced and directed by Peter Jackson, inspired by the british novel The Hobbit written by J.R.R Tolkien. This project is the continuation of the adaptation from the trilogy « The Lord of the Ring » also produced by Peter Jackson.

The video bellow the scene shows how the animation supervisors worked on the animation of the fantastic characters in this case we are talking about the troll’s, the system used is the motion capture stage. So that when they are framing the shot they can see each other because their motions are translated into the camera. This shows us that the team has experience, because they work with each other for a long time now. I think that this saga will dazzle us in the years to come.
