in kids films good always wins
... I can see things are going well Paperclip.
I doubt i'll be able to get this question done with primary research like this. Oh well, it was worth a try.
"Is Michael gay??" LOL
see you on monday.
I'm doing the same coursework as you. Was that a question you chose or did your teacher set you it?
Also if I were you I would decide on very specific things you are going to discuss. For example, have a section just on textual analysis and the effect of certain aspects. You could also talk about to what extent audiences engage with the values and ideologies shown in the films; how the icons which represent good and evil fit in with other aspects of society...To be honest I think it's kinda broad because not only are you comparing different audiences but different texts.
But hm good luck doing it!
haha, that's what i love about chat vesta
nadinus- i chose it, thanks for the advice
errr how about all 3 films contain characters that exist as a form of pure malevolence; contradicting the smaltzy view normally taken by cinema that there is good and evil in all of us; rather, there exists in all 3 films a view of childhood innocence (the kids in narnia, hobbits in lotr, leonidas' son in 300) and shows how outside forces corrupt the natural innocence of children. so all 3 films represent an opposing view to the christian idea of original sin, strange in the case of narnia actually as there was a lot of christian undertones and what have you.
or maybe not, i never did film studies myself lol
