Movies are a way that americas can find enjoyment, entainment, and sometime life lesson. Throught our my life I always loved Disney film and cartoons, on of my favorites that was released in 2010. The movie Tangled is a romantic family fun film, it is the story of Rapunzel or along the lines or the story. It’s the tale of the girl in the tower with the long, loooong hair. In this version, her hair has magical healing powers, gained from a flower that was brewed in a potion and given to her mother during childbirth to save her life.
The powers transferred to the child – but then a wicked old woman (who had discovered and nurtured the flower until the king’s men found it) stole the baby. Now the woman, Mother Gothel, uses the hair’s magical powers to rejuvenate herself on a regular basis. And she’s kept the girl hidden away in a tower for 18 years, telling her that she keeps her there because the world is full of wicked people who want to steal her hair’s magic.
The hero in this story is a raffish thief named Flynn who, with a pair of ruffians called the Stabbington brothershave broken into the castle (where Rapunzel’s real parents, the king and queen, live) and stolen a crown. Chased by the king’s men (and one particularly determined horse called Maximus), Flynn escapes into the hidden valley where Rapunzel’s tower is. Mother Gothel isn’t home — but when Flynn climbs up to the tower, Rapunzel clocks him with a frying pan and trusses him up. Eventually it comes out that Rapunzel wants nothing more than to go to town to see the release of lighted flying lanterns that happens annually on her birthday. Unbeknownst to both her and Flynn, she’s the missing princess the ceremony is meant to commemorate. ) So Flynn reluctantly agrees to take her to see it. The jeopardy that they encounter includes both plenty of laughs and lots of excitement. (Fine, 2010) This film was a great movie and the character made the movie better, the voice of Rapunzel, Mandy Moore gave her spunk and heart, while Zachary Levi with the voice of Flynn adds the right mixture of smart alecks and comedy and Donna Murphy as the voice of Mother Gothel, she give the film most of the rude yet funniest parts as the aggressive guardian.
Characters in movies add flare and theme to a film. As this movie Tangled, is set in the mix of a majestical forrest where the tower that Rapunzel has never left and then the castle to where Flynn takes her to meet her true parent. Tangled is a animated comedy that used a various of designs and color shcemes. As the book states, color attracts attention, the director has several methods of keeping attention focused on the cetner of interest. Our eye is drawn to large objects, to the objects closest to the camera, to the objects in the sharpest focus, to movement and to close-ups. Boogs ; Petrie, 2008) When the use of bright or saturated colors on objects of greaest interest and placing that object against a contrasting background, the director can easily capture the viewer’s eye, in which Tangled is a great example of how directors Nathan Greno and Bryon Howard make the animation very innovating and suprising. Although the scene and character are some of the most important parts of the film, another important part is the musical score and the soundtrack.
Some directors make use of the soundtrack and the musical score in unique and individual ways. Whereas one may simply match natural sounds to the corresponding action, another may consider sound almost as important as the image and use off-screen sound imaginatively to create a sense of total enviroment. Yet some other films may use sound in an impressionistic or even sybolic manner. (Boogs ; Petrie, 2008) In this class I have learned many things about movies and analyzing them.
The book and other materials have taught me how to find the interpretation of the film and finding how to make an approach of it by watching, analying, and evaluating all of the movies meanings, themes, and a sufficient understanding of the films medium and the techniques of the filmmaking. As my own personal evaluation of this movie would be that it’s a fun romantic comedy, that may teach a lesson to a younger audience but unlikely to teach anything to an older audience but it was an enjoyable movie that I would watch over and over again.
In this movie, Tangled, the meaning of it is to discover and fight for everything that you want no matter how long it takes and in the end you might be surprised what you find, as like Rapunzel, she wanted to see the floating lanterns that come out every year on her birthday and a special someone stubbles appon her to take her to see them and she find out that she is a missing princess that the lanterns are for.
After all eightteen years spend in a tower she finally finds what make her happy and she also falls in love. The outcome of this movie is purely a happy ending and to a younger audience is it what children dream of and they want the same thing to happen to them. The magically long- haired Rapunzel has enlighted the hearts of many and this film with the use of outstanding musical scores and a irrestiable theme,has brought many louaghts and excitement to all.
Analazying this film has opened my mind to look at other movies and see what it is behind them and what the meanings of them are, how they are produced, and to get a complete understandment of the film.
