HUM 150 Week 1 How Films Communicate Part I
Complete Part I of the University of Phoenix Material: How Films Communicate document.
Submit your assignment to the Assignment Files tab.
How Films Communicate
Instructions
In Week 1, submit this document with Part I completed. In Week 2, submit it with Parts II & III completed.
Part I: Beginning to Analyze Film
To compete Part I, choose a movie you have viewed in the past (this does not have to be from the University of Phoenix: How Films Communicate Film List ). You may need to view this film again to aide in competing this assignment. Films are not provided by UoP, so you will need to arrange for films to view through rental, streaming service or purchase. Review the following example in the table and then complete your information by inserting the title of your movie and completing the entries for time and place, costume, and set design, writing in complete sentences, then describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements discussed in Ch. 1 of Film and how they contributed to your liking or disliking of the movie. Submit Part I in Week 1.
 




Movie


Time and Place


Costume


Set Design


Describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements and how they contributed to your liking or disliking of the movie.




Example Movie
 
Alien, (Scott, 1979)
 
 
 


Example Entry
 
The movie is set in the far-off future. The movie takes place in space on board a spaceship and some action occurs on the surface of a planet.


Example Entry
 
The characters often appear in grubby, casual clothing and what appear to be worn-out uniforms. Also, they appear in space suits when they journey to the planet.


Example Entry
 
The sets looks very high-tech and run-down at the same time. In some areas there are very streamlined and modern-looking set pieces, and in other areas pipes or tubing can be seen running along the walls.


Example Entry
 
The overall atmosphere is gritty and realistic creating the sense that this is a lived-in world. The atmosphere of the planet they visit is creepy because the shapes of the set seems alive. The characters are all acting realistically, especially the character of Lambert who is terrified. The characters fit into this world well, looking sweaty and with no visible make-up. The elements combined contributed to my enjoyment by making the action feel like it was really happening. Also, the alien design was nightmarish.

HUM 150 Week 5 Final Project: You are the Movie Critic
Write a review (also called a critique) of one movie of your own selection following the instructions in the You are the Movie Critic document.
 
You are the Movie Critic
 
Imagine you are a movie critic writing for your own popular movie blog.
 
Write a 700 to 1,050 word review of one movie of your own selection in which you analyze the movie in terms of its genre and the elements of film. Films are not provided by UoP, so you will need to arrange for films to view through rental, streaming service or purchase. As part of your role as a movie critic, create your own scale to rate the movie; for example, a scale of 1 through 5 stars is typical of many movie critics.
Address and answer the following in your movie review:

  • Identify the film's genre and whether or not it was typical or atypical of its genre. Include a discussion of the film's story in your discussion of the film's genre.



  • Do you think the editing was appropriate? Why or why not?



  • Was the sound use effective or ineffective? Why?



  • What feelings, if any, did the score elicit?



  • Describe the film's cinematography and how it did or did not support the mood and tone of the movie.



  • How was the social context in which the film was made present in the film?



  • What was the meaning of the film?



  • What personal influences or biases do you have that affected your opinion?



  • Was this film enjoyable? Why or why not? Did the story and plot “work” for you?



  • Would you recommend the movie, and how do you rate it on your scale?


Format: This assignment must be in APA paper format. See the “APA Writing and Style Guidelines” as well as the “UoP APA Paper Template” documents under Week 1 Recommended activities if you are unsure of proper APA format for a paper of this type. Be sure to properly format and cite your film titles, double-space your paper with the first line of each paragraph indented, include a separate title page, and include a separate References page at the end of the paper with proper entry for your film and any other sources you use information from.
