Questions related to Film Criticism
Thompson and Bordwell's perspective on active viewership overlooks the impact of cultural and social factors on shaping the text and the author's thoughts. In this way, Zizek criticizes Neoformalism for failing to acknowledge the pivotal role of culture and ideology in shaping the film's text and thoughts. I am curious if any post-neoformalist theories or critical theorists have explored the integration of contextual materials in the realm of structure and form.
I'm writting an essay to analysis a film with Textual analysis,expecially I want to use content analysis, Is there anyone can give me some suggestions about what should be included in this method of textual analysis?
So I am trying to conduct a study. I want to compare two film critics ratings
They both give 1 to 5 star ratings. I am going to measure the success of the film by box officer numbers. For ratings 1-4 and if the films when any awards or are nominated or win I will give the movie 5 stars. This I have down pretty well. What I am wondering is how should I compare them?
I will have two raters being Critic A and Critic B. They give pre-release rating and I will assign each movie a “actual-post release rating based on numbers and results” The idea is to determine how accurate each rater is and what are the chances that they totally miss on movies. Such as how often are 5 star movies flops and how often are 1-2 star movies mega hits. I also would like to group the movies into studios, to see if certain studio ratings are more accurate.
I am thinking a two way ANOVA for each rater at the .05 alpha level, but seeing how this is my first time designing a study I could use some help. I think the design is sound, it’s using the correct analysis which I am unsure on. Any help in the statistcal analysis I should use would be helpful! Thanks
Is anyone analyzing film rhetorically? I refer both to the rhetorical structures in a film and the rhetorical approches that film critics adopt.
There are class, race, and gender structures in films that viewer respond to and reject. Critics may consciously or unconsciously use terms that bias perception of a film due to "normalized" terms used in describing a film. "Normalized" can mean that a film is being attacked by a film critic while the terms seem innocuous enough. For instance, "sentimental" is often used for certain mass appeal films and films that depict the lower social strata. In Europe the term "kitsch" often refers to films popular with the poorer classes of society. In the US the term "sentimental" serves the same function.
