Over the past month of this semester in this class, we have had the chance to watch many different types of movies from musicals to romantic films. They have been very interesting to not only watch but also having the chance to read a couple of them as well. A Streetcar named Desire, Amadeus, and Chicago were all very interesting in their own ways of having both theatrical and Cinematic features. I personally would say Amadeus had the most Theatrical and Cinematic features of the three, even though Chicago was a close second. But these movies were produced in 1984 and 2002 respectively and over such a period of time producers and writers find ways to make their work more appealing to their audience. I'm not going into much detail about these pieces because I want to focus on a piece I talked about earlier this semester.
The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, ranked as the number 11 highest grossing movies of all time and has peaked as the seventh highest grossing movie of all time. It is one of my favorite movies of all time, because it is a movie that people of all ages could see and it is a very action packed movie. The main character, Bruce Wayne, or The Batman is a man who is very wealthy and with this wealth it allows to be very innovative with the technology that he uses to try to save his city, Gotham. In this movie he is trying to save Gotham from being taken over and destroyed by Bane who wants to use Bruce Wayne's fusion reactor to use it as a weapon.
There are many examples of theatrical moments in the Dark Knight Rises. While reading through the presentation there were synonyms for theatrical and one that really reflects Bruce Wayne's business manager Lucius Fox and it would be mannered. His character has a direct impact on the Batman because not only does he help manage Wayne Enterprises, but he also is the man who supplies the Batman with the equipment he needs.
