My Top 50 Favorite Mindfuck Movies I thought I could rank them, but that would be too difficult, so here they are in alphabetical order. 1. 21 Grams 2. Adjustment Bureau, The Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future. A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. A world where the individual potential and freedom is celebrated and brought to the forefront. In contrast, the dystopian world is undesirable with poverty and unequal domination by specific individuals over others.
Steven Soderbergh: State of Cinema First of all, is there a difference between cinema and movies? Yeah. If I were on Team America, I’d say “Fuck yeah!” [laughter] The simplest way that I can describe it is that a movie is something you see, and cinema is something that’s made. It has nothing to do with the captured medium, it doesn’t have anything to do with the where the screen is, if it’s in your bedroom, your iPad—it doesn’t even really have to be a movie: it could be a commercial, it could be something on YouTube. My top 30 favorite horror movies list "Groovy""I'll swallow your soul!" ... "Swallow this!" ranna's rating: "So, um, we think we should discuss the bonus situation..."
180 Degree Rule This schematic shows the axis between two characters and the 180° arc on which cameras may be positioned (green). When cutting from the green arc to the red arc, the characters switch places on the screen. In film making, the 180-degree rule is a basic guideline regarding the on-screen spatial relationship between a character and another character or object within a scene. An imaginary line called the axis connects the characters, and by keeping the camera on one side of this axis for every shot in the scene, the first character is always frame right of the second character, who is then always frame left of the first. The camera passing over the axis is called jumping the line or crossing the line; breaking the 180-degree rule by shooting on all sides is known as shooting in the round.
50 Movies You Have to Watch Before You Die Movies are an important part of popular culture. You may view them as less refined than books, but the stories are essentially the same.

Life is short – don’t let it pass you by without seeing these movie classics: 50.

You’ll know some of these titles, but likely not others. Related Content: My Best Friend’s Birthday, Quentin Tarantino’s 1987 Debut Film
Welcome Home! Sign in Email Password Pixar's Motto In a world that is obsessed with preventing errors and perfection, perhaps it's ironic that despite 11 straight blockbuster movies, Pixar cofounder and President Ed Catmull describes Pixar's creative process as "going from suck to nonsuck." That's because Catmull and Pixar's directors think it's better to fix problems than to prevent errors. "My strategy has always been: be wrong as fast as we can," says Andrew Stanton, Director of Finding Nemo and WALL-E, "Which basically means, we're gonna screw up, let's just admit that. Let's not be afraid of that." We can all work this way more often. So, for instance, Pixar does not begin new movies with a script.
movie questions While most of the films on the list are set in high schools or universities, the issues they address are relevant to teachers at all levels. Each movie has four or five questions. I anticipate that you would write equally for each movie, so don’t select a film because it has fewer questions than another one. Before you watch the movie, read through the questions carefully so you know what to look for. The questions do not ask you merely to recall details; they require critical thinking, creative and / or personal responses, and application to various aspects of education. Other titles will be added to the list as I am able to compile the viewing guides.
Eye for Film : Hotel Splendide Movie Review (2000) "British" and "film" are not always the greatest combination of words on the planet. In fact lately the rash of films trying to emulate the Englishness of Four Weddings And A Funeral, the gruesomeness of Shallow Grave or the plucky northerner spirit of the hugely successful The Full Monty (see There's Only One Jimmy Grimble or Billy Elliot for more examples) seem to have seriously put back the British film industry. In this state of mind I toddled along to Hotel Splendide, concerned it would fall somewhere between Fawlty Towers and Guesthouse Paradiso or, God forbid, worse.
