Two World’s Disaster Message
People are likely to fall into visual aspects. Movies are just an entertainment. It is a form of entertainment that enacts a story by sound and a sequence of images giving the illusion of continuous movement. Unlikely visual sequence cannot be all alike. There are differences and similarities between American and Korean films. Roland Emmerich’s directed movie The Day After Tomorrow has been viewed by half of the U.S. population as well as world wise it granted. Similar movie Haeundae (Tidal Wave) directed from Je-gyun Yun has made success through 7million viewers. There is more action in the American films and thoughtfully more love in Korean.
The Day After Tomorrow is a 2004 American science-fiction film that depicts the shattering effects of both global warming and global cooling in a series of extreme weather events that occurred in a new ice age. The movie itself had the action. The consultation by NASA scientists was requested before the filming of the movie, but NASA stated that the events in the film were too ridiculous to actually occur, and therefore denied the request. NASA sent a memo out to all of its employees stating that they were not allowed to comment on the likelihood of the events portrayed, but later rescinded this restriction. Not only scientifically thrilling but the technology made it more realistic. The opening shot of the ice shelf is completely CG and lasts just over 2 1/2 minutes. There are also some pretty good performances from Jay O. Sanders, and Sir Ian Holm who bears a small but effective supporting role. The story and concept presented here make for some truly horrific scenes including the basic coming of the ice age with hail storms, and blizzards in countries with warm climates not to mention humongous tornadoes in the middle of Hollywood, there is a very well done sequence in which a tornado takes down the Hollywood sign, plus, my favorite, when the oceans begin toppling New York and flooding the entire city.
Life's a Bitch Life's a bitch is a movie filmed out of Mexico, which examines the life of three individuals who are all indirectly involved in the same car crash. The sequencing of the film is much like director Quentin Tarantino's Pulp fiction, in which several lives are separate, but related. Nonetheless, the movie was very interesting. Three lives were viewed, a young man and his love for his ...
The films a very bleak vision of what would happen should the ice age ever come, and while there are many liberties taken as far as the accuracy of tornadoes and the exact time it would take for an actual coming of the ice, it’s nonetheless a horrific thought to contemplate in the end, and of course, in a very tasty slice of irony, the ice age forces American citizens to become refugees and sneak into Mexican borders, one of the only countries without the horrible effects of the ice age, it was a poetic twist such as this that just won me over in the end. It did well in the box office, grossing $542,771,772 internationally and bringing its total film gross to $652,771,772.
The $13 million production by CJ Entertainment, one of the most expensive in South Korea, opened July 22, 2009. With a deluge of 869 screens nationwide, more than 1.5 million admissions over three days were reported. Haeundae is the city placed in Busan and the film relocates the possible view of tsunami. Of course huge earthquake happens which triggers the greatly feared event. But unlike American films: making the story too serious and going through official acceptations, Haeundae was more of a heartfelt genre. Most of the Korean society does not welcome the violence, cruelty, and danger. Although Je-gyun Yun began the movie with Sumatra Tsunami, the Busan, Haeundae’s tidal wave didn’t occur until the end of the movie. There were a lot of romance and comic scenes of Choi Man-shik and Kang Yeon-hee. Korean movies do swing and sway quite wildly between moods from scene to scene, and it isn’t usually consistent even in the best films. But here in Haeundae two-thirds of this is a decent crowd-pleaser, the “mixed salad” kind of entertainment. And then in the last twenty-five minutes it turns into more or less a total tearful, so much so that you’ll either fall for it completely Titanic style or you’ll be scratching your head or simply cringing at the hysterics on display. As Korean’s best disaster movie Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, the United Kingdom, Australia and Turkey. The film was released in South Korea on 22 July 2009; Haeundae had received a total of 11,301,649 admissions in South Korean theatres.
