    Who doesn’t like video games?

    Center, Right, Left – Reading Movies

    Ebert: “How To Read A Movie” via Q. Tarantino & S. Kubrick

    To begin, I found Ebert’s descriptive of movement in cinematography to be very interesting. He explained how the movement of characters, in addition to the movement of camera angle, can infer both positive and negative connotations. A quote of his that I found very helpful was, “Right is more positive, left more negative. Movement to […]

    Look, Listen, Analyze: Bruce Almighty


    As you can see from the movie scene above, I chose to analyze Evan Baxter’s Newscast scene from Evan Almighty. Before I get into the actual analyzing of the scene, I must say I had to watch it more than three times because it was so funny.
