The 10 Best Structured Movies In History

Video: I don’t find myself thinking about the structure of a movie as often as I should. But after seeing this video from CineFix explain the different structures used in movies, I probably will. There’s a lot of information to unpack, and a lot of movies get mentioned, and a lot of their picks for the 10 best structured movies are a tad insufferable, but it’s still fun for me to watch because the movies get broken down from a different perspective.


The 7 Scariest Movie Scenes Of All Time

What movie scene scared you the most when you first watched it? Was it something embarrassing? Or is it something you’re still scared of, and if you see anything resembling it in real life, you completely freak out?


How To Do Violence In Movies Right

Video: There’s so much violence in movies that it doesn’t even matter any more.


What Makes A Movie Scary?

Video: Not all scary movies are actually all that scary so what is it about the best scary movies that make them so much more terrifying than the rest? It’s in the editing.


The Evolution Of Joker In Film And TV History

Video: The Joker is easily one of the best villains in film and TV (and obviously, comic book) history, but who is the best Joker? Jack Nicholson combined the mischievous campiness of the character with the deranged thirst for violence. Heath Ledger’s The Dark Knight Joker is somehow just as iconic as Nicholson and fit Christopher Nolan’s Gotham perfectly. And Mark Hamill has basically become the standard-bearer of the Joker through his work in the animated Batman series.


Here Are The Difference Fight Scene Styles Used In The Bourne Movies

Video: I’m still not entirely sure we needed another Matt Damon Bourne movie after not having one for nearly a decade, but we’ve gotten one. It’s probably not going to be as good as the original trilogy. That’s why it’s nice to look back on the three Bourne flicks that were actually good. Specifically, their fight scenes.


The Main Reason Batman V Superman Sucked Isn't What You Think It Is

Video: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a joyless movie that had none of the fun that comes with being a superhero flick (I mean, even Batman can have fun between grunts). But that wasn’t the main reason it sucked. Nerdwriter explains that its the movie’s over-reliance on moments versus scenes that makes the whole thing feel awkward, staged and inauthentic. The film tried to awe us with slow motion shots, montage sequences, dream scenes, close up shots and absolute destruction… but as a result, it forgot to build a world or tell a story we would care about.


5 Beyond Brilliant Action Scenes In Movies

Video: Action movies are fun to watch but there’s a smart way to do action scenes and an epically dumb way to do it. The smart way focuses in on the details, tells a story within a story and makes sure we know just what the hell is going on amidst all the crazy. The dumb way? Explosions, shaky camera effects, chaos to blur the action and just a general messiness that doesn’t make any sense but looks cool.


How Different Colours Convey Different Emotions In Movies

Video: You may not realise it as you’re watching a movie, but directors are manipulating how you feel by playing with certain colours in each scene. Here’s a compilation of how the psychology of colour works in movies. For example, pink is often used to convey sweetness or femininity, while red is utilised for violence. Green for nature, blue for isolation.


What Makes Dialogue Great In Movies

Video: Dialogue is not exactly cinematic. It’s just people talking to each other, and it’s not always fun to watch either, since it’s often just words spewed to further the plot. But what makes some dialogue scenes so much better than others? Is it good dialogue like a real conversation?
