Homework #7

One film where you see jump cuts moved would be, 2001: A space odyssey. Jump cuts are described as being two different sequential shots taken in different camera positions. Today seeing it in films just looks like bad editing. Films use jump cuts to show different angles or to almost progress in the film without having to give much explanation. This technique was also used in film to make magic tricks. In this clip you see a bone thrown up in the air and eventually turning in to a spaceship, which we all know can’t really happen but it is shown to give symbolism.

Homework #3 Noah Controversial films

When asked to post about a controversial film it was a little hard to think about because for the most part I don’t really have time to watch a lot of movies, but I thought back to the last few movies I did watch and one of them was “Noah” which I can imagine caused controversy just because it is based on a story told in the bible. Not only  do we all know when religion comes into play everyone always has its discrepancies. There are going to be those that don’t fully agree with what this portrays. Reading up on this movie in fact helped me discover that “Three Arab countries have banned the Hollywood film “Noah” on religious grounds even before its worldwide premiere and several others are expected to follow suit.”
