By Yash Upreti

Gangster Squad set in an era of post world war 2, it gives us surreal glimpse of L.A at that time.Ruben Fleischer has directed this movie with perfection.Performance of Sean Penn is just colossal and flawless.He plays as a gangster who "Has sworn an oath of violence".The dialogues of this movie are brilliant. The film contains intense violence and nerve racking action sequences.The use of costumes and sets in this movie are hypnotizing.

The Music of Middle Earth - an Analysis on the Use of Music in the Film: "the Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring"

By Stuart Heimdal

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was the first movie in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, based on the popular fantasy books written by J.R. R. Tolkein. The movie was a blockbuster hit at both the box office and at the Oscars. The story, in and of itself, is creative, captivating and magical. But even a wonderful story can flop when put onto the big screen. Cinematography, special effects, visual effects and the quality of acting all play an important part in making a story "live" for an audience. Music also plays a vital part in making a movie successful. Music can make us feel that we are in another place and time. It captures our emotions by creating an ambiance of happiness, sadness, tension, fear or excitement. read more
