This is the essay I wrote with Jacqueline Kaschl and portrays the use of 5 of our vocab words (bolded).
Among the Separation of Thrill and Fear
As the years go by so does the advancement of movies. Scary movies become scarier, romantic movies become more romantic, and action packed movies become more powerful. Movies are such a big part of our lives, which have been carried on for centuries. It is empirical that the movie theaters are such a place that we could enjoy the products of creative minds. Nowadays movies reflect our interest and create productions based off what is popular at a specific time. Scary movies are never actually scary. This specific category of movies includes the horror intended movies that make people scared for their life. Scary movies are always a letdown, but everyone still goes to see them. Joss Whedon agrees with this stating that “Horror movies do not exist unless you go and see them, and people always will.” Numerous Paranormal Activity movies have been released, where a camera is shown viewing a house that is haunted. Ridiculous happenings occur and people are shown screaming for their lives. Other scary horror movies include Insidious and Sinister. Scary movies are garish, but box office worthy.
The Notebook, The Last Song, and The Lucky One are romantic movies that transform a teenage love into a true meaning. Nicholas Sparks is a man of vivid romantic movies and decorative love stories. Channing Tatum states in the movie The Vow the words, "I vow no matter what challenges might carry us apart that we will always find a way back to each other.” How else can one not fall in love with him? When watching a romance, Marla Pachter covers the idea that you cannot help but only imagine yourself among the reality of the episode. Romantic movies are the epitome of a teenage girls dream.
Race cars flying down the road, trains crashing through buildings, and men falling from rooftop. Action movies consist of a hero thrown into a series of challenges to fulfill. Action filled movies are only getting more powerful in today’s movie industry. Superman, Batman, and Ironman have been ranked among the top of the list for action movies for decades now. Manabu Ozawa from Japan says that actions movies can be at blame for violence seen in public today because they are closer to reality than any other movie. The constant bang of the gun and thrill of the challenges faced within action movies keep the viewer’s intact. Megan Fox states, “I still like the run and gun action movies and how truly dangerous it can be to make these films.” Movies can be classified into categories that include the different genres.
It is common to have an animosity for choosing a movie; however, the only opinion that matters is that of the viewer. Some people have their definition of which movie pertains to which category. Movies nowadays are so lavish due to technology and would be the reason all genres appear to different people in many different ways. There is always a meaning behind the movie. An outcome in the end always emanates from the movie even though they are all so different.
