The journalist touches on the Dark Knight and why it is a standard for superhero movies in the film industry. He mentions the cliches that plague the superhero film industry. He mostly touches on the whole good guy versus bad guy deal and the fact that most heroes lack any character depth past that. However batman and the joker differ in this with the character depth and backstory and the way they are personified and depicted in the Dark Knight is what defines it as a staple for superhero movies. Personally I feel that the comparisons that the journalists made is what I would primarily take away form this article.
There are many, many theories about what Stanley Kubrick's flick The Shining really means. Those theories is what the article covers. It goes into some of the most outlandish theories backing them with surprisingly compelling evidence. I feel I can have some resemblance of this articles ideas through Pulp Fiction many outlandish theories normally dealing with the briefcase. I would prefer to do a single one and go in-depth not in a top ten format however.
This article looks into the life of Francis Ford Coppola. It has a large sum of background information about him and his family and eventually covers the following of the movie and the history of itself. The analysis part of the article focuses mainly on the brotherhood and family part of the film. What I feel I can take away from the journalist is how he pieces the analysis together with very narrow view points. I feel this allows the writer to signify their points without claims becoming outlandish which is something I feel could be taken advantage of in my analysis.
The following analysis reveals a comprehensive look at the Storyform for The Godfather. The analysis wasn't compromised of paragraphs and a basic rundown of the story. It composed what the journalist called the essential questions and answered each. Personally I wouldn't write any of my analysis like this. The questions act as good ground work and is what I would take from the article.
This article touches on Drake's recent releases and his change in tone. It mentions his move form songs in albums like views that have a more serious tone. The journalist even goes as far as to call it nihilistic. The evidence given is through music videos which I found enjoyable. The main thing I feel I can take away from the article is the journalists way of referring to outside sources that seem unrelated to the topic at hand in this case it's music. I feel it can signify your point and make the reader think deeper into the topic.
This article is composed of the favorite movie intros from multiple AVclub journalists. The analyzation was mainly cinematography and setting. I enjoyed both of these because it is a shift away from the norm of analyzing theme and symbols. The type of analyzation they used would best be used when writing a paper on something like The Godfather that revitalized and changed cinematography, but can be used on a small scale when analyzing Pulp Fiction.
Dwayne Johnson battles three giant monsters. That is the summary given to the movie by Screen Rant. I enjoy reading reviews especially when it tears apart something I don't like. That is exactly what this article does it touches on the absurdity of Rampage and the fact that it is just another generic Dwayne Johnson movie. He is a hero that resembles nearly the same character that he plays in all of his movies and fights bad guys. This is how the journalist describes it gives the rundown and reviews it throws in a few jokes and moves on. It was straightforward and referenced other films which could be compared to it as worse or better. This gave the article depth and allowed the reader to make a comparison when giving the movie a though which I liked.
Rolling Stone depicts and analyzes the famous gimp scene in Pulp Fiction. The Journalist gives a rundown of the scene and seems to have some further knowledge of every line in the script. The journalist even went in depth about a far fetched theory about Marcellus' soul being in the briefcase seen through the movie. It was a pretty simple article, but it analyzed a specific point in the movie in an extremely in depth way and went into nearly every reference or influence for each point in the scene. Something I might take away from this article is the narrowed down analysis. It allowed the journalist to go all in for the analysis which I liked.
The journalist that wrote this article was straight to the point. The article was short and sweet covering the recent brawl between the Yankees and Red Sox. He used clips and photos to avoid an over descriptive and elongated article on a simple topic. He also covered a fight how it should have been covered. He referenced older baseball rivalries and how the fight was what a spectator wanted to see. The journalist made it fun to read and gave a no holds barred description of what happened and his opinion on it.
This article touches mainly on the theme of nihilism is Pulp Fiction. The thing that caught my eye about it is that the writer payed the entire story out into a linear plot line. It made it easier to consider the theme and make sense out of the symbols. I find this allows the reader to have a better understanding of characters. The article also touches on the characters development, which is hard to analyze through the movie alone because of its nonlinear plot line. Altogether I find this article did a great job at explaining the plot in order, explaining the theme, and using points in the movie to back the claims.
