Ridley Scott

by Brian J. Robb, Ridley Scott Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Ridley Scott book, Who is Ridley Scott? The director of Blade Runner, Gladiator, Hannibal and the controversial forthcoming Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott is one of cinema's most accomplished visual stylists. His films have included the phenomenally successful Blade Runner, a film which flopped in 1982 but has since become a cinematic touchstone for visions of the future, and the fatally flawed Legend, his attempt to create a dark fairy tale, compromised by production problems and studio interference. His cult movies (visceral creature feature Alien, Blade Runner and Legend) are his most talked about films, but Scott branched out to tackle a series of thrillers, before hitting Oscar gold with the controversial feminist road movie, Thelma & Louise. Acclaimed for the visual depth of his films, Scott has often been criticised for not giving enough attention to his characters or his stories. Attempts to chart history in 1492: Conquest of Paradise and tell a true story in White Squall were not successful, but Scott triumphantly returned to form with Gladiator, his blood-soaked, blockbusting retelling of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. So what's in this Pocket Essential? As well as an introductory essay, the making of each of Ridley Scott's visually sumptuous films is chronicled, complete with information on the inspiration for each film and the reaction of critics and audiences. There are also detailed accounts of the Ridley Scott projects which did not make it to the big screen. Not only that, but there's a handy reference section listing other books about Ridley Scott, interesting web sites and availability of his films. Greatly expanded and fully updated, this new edition of the Pocket Essential Ridley Scott covers everything you need to know about this remarkable filmmaker.

Das Sounddesign Von Ridley Scotts Blade Runner

by Jeremy Iskandar, Das Sounddesign Von Ridley Scotts Blade Runner Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Das Sounddesign Von Ridley Scotts Blade Runner book, Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, Note: 2,3, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Veranstaltung: Imaginierte Klänge - Der Soundtrack von Science Fiction-Filmen, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Hausarbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Sounddesign von Ridley Scotts 1982 veröffentlichten Science-Fiction-Klassiker Blade Runner. Einzelne markante Szenen aus der Director’s Cut-Version des Films1 werden bezüglich ihres Sounddesigns analysiert. Zentrale Fragestellungen sind hierbei Richtlinien wie: „Welche Funktion hat der „Sound“ in der entsprechenden Szene?“, „Was klingt und wie kann es zugeordnet werden?“, „Wie ist das Sounddesign einer entsprechenden Szene im Ganzen angelegt (Einsatz von Onscreen/Offscreen-Klängen)?“, „Welche Korrelation gehen Bild und Ton mit einander ein, und welche Wirkung wird dadurch erzielt?“. Bevor ich mich nun aber der Analyse der ausgewählten Filmszenen widme, möchte ich noch eine kurze Einführung zum Film selbst bieten und auch auf seine prägende Rolle als stilistisches Meisterwerk innerhalb und auch außerhalb des Science-Fiction-Films hinweisen. Das der Film einmal einen derartigen Kultstatur innehaben würde, wie er ihn heute zweifelsohne genießt, war bei seiner Erstaufführung am 25.06.1982 noch nicht ab zu sehen. Vielmehr waren dem Film bei seinem Erscheinen fast nur negative Kritiken beschienen. Der prominente Filmkritiker Roger Ebert2 äußerte über den Film beispielsweise: „the movie’s weakness [...] is that allows the special-effects technology to overwhelm the story“ (Sievert, 2000, S. 1).3 Auch an den Kinokassen blieb der Erfolg aus, gestaltete sich der kommerzielle Erfolg viel mehr eher zum Desaster. So spielte der Film entgegen seiner Produktionskosten von 28 Millionen Dollar, nur 14 Millionen Dollar wieder ein (vgl. Sievert, 2000, S. 1). Dies lag unter anderem daran, dass der damals veröffentlichte Film nicht der war, den Regisseur Ridley Scott eigentlich geplant hatte. Wegen Bedenken von Seiten der Filmgesellschaft Warner Brothers entschloss man sich nämlich dazu, das Verständnis des Filmes durch Offscreen-Kommentare von Hauptdarsteller Harrison Ford zu verbessern, und auch das offene Ende des Films in ein Happyend zu verwandeln. Motivation war hierbei das negative Ergebnis vorausgegangener Probevorführungen (vgl. Sievert, 2000, S. 108). (1) Erstaufführung am 11.09.1992 (2) Roger Ebert (geb. 18.06.1942) ist einer der prominentesten Filmkritiker der USA und der erste Pulitzer-Preis-Gewinner für eine Filmkritik. Er schreibt für die Chicago-Sun Times. (3) Zitiert nach Sammon, Future Noir. The Making of Blade Runner, New York 1996, S. 314.

Die Aspekte Der Cartesischen Philosophie In Sir Ridley Scotts Science Fiction Film Blade Runner

by Chris Schwarz, Die Aspekte Der Cartesischen Philosophie In Sir Ridley Scotts Science Fiction Film Blade Runner Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Die Aspekte Der Cartesischen Philosophie In Sir Ridley Scotts Science Fiction Film Blade Runner book, Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Merz Akademie - Hochschule für Gestaltung Stuttgart, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Hausarbeit untersucht den Science-Fiction-Klassiker „Blade Runner“ von Ridley Scott mit folgende Fragestellungen: „Was macht die Menschlichkeit aus? Ist diese angeboren oder kann sie einprogrammiert werden? Kann Menschlichkeit in einer Umgebung, die von Kapitalismus, Konsumwahn, ökologischen Katastrophen und Werteverfall dominiert wird, überleben?“ Dabei werden die Aspekte der „Cartesischen Philosophie“, begründet von René Descartes, im Film betrachtet. Bereits der Name des Balde Runner Rick Deckard ist eine Anspielung auf den Vertreter der rationalen Erkenntnistheorie. In der Arbeit wird näher darauf eingegangen. Blade Runner gilt als Symbol seiner Zeit und zählt zu einer der wichtigsten Filme seines Genres, da er zu einer kleinen Gruppe futuristischer Meisterwerke gehört, die das Publikum stets fasziniert und immer wieder neue Perspektiven aufzeigt. Er besticht durch seinen vielschichtigen Inhalt, seine kritische Haltung, seine visuelle Komplexität und zeigt zudem auf, wie anspruchsvoll das Science-Fiction-Genre sein kann. Der Regisseur Ridley Scott beeinflusste viele nachfolgende Filme des gleichen Genres.

Retrofitting Blade Runner

by Judith Kerman, Retrofitting Blade Runner Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Retrofitting Blade Runner book, This book of essays looks at the multitude of texts and influences which converge in Ridley Scott's film Blade Runner, especially the film's relationship to its source novel, Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The film's implications as a thought experiment provide a starting point for important thinking about the moral issues implicit in a hypertechnological society. Yet its importance in the history of science fiction and science fiction film rests equally on it mythically and psychologically resonant creation of compelling characters and an exciting story within a credible science fiction setting. These essays consider political, moral and technological issues raised by the film, as well as literary, filmic, technical and aesthetic questions. Contributors discuss the film's psychological and mythic patterns, important political issues and the roots of the film in Paradise Lost, Frankenstein, detective fiction, and previous science fiction cinema.
