Final Film Critique: Hangover Part III
I have chosen the Hangover 3, directed by Todd Phillips, to critique; it seems to be a very humorous movie from just watching this one clip. This movie is in the genre of comedy, it is being called the epic final of the “Wolf Pack”. Since the Hangover III does not get released until May 23, 2013 I will base my paper on the movie clip, I my critique I will attempt to explain the uses of sound cinematography used in the clip that I have viewed, and how well the actors play there parts in the clip. The scene for the clip titled Hangover Part III Trailer #2 begins with a scene of is of Alan (Zach Galifianakis) is speaking at his father’s funeral, and not being very nice to his mother about his father dying first, than onto a scene of Alan filling in the plot of his fathers at the cemetery while Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are shown walking away discussing Alan being of his meds for the past six months. In these scenes, which are outdoor scenes, it has a light background music playing but do not know if that is just the clip or in the movie itself. The camera scenes flash back and forth from the three discussing Alan back to Alan, some are fade outs to another scene others are Discontinuity editing, making no effort to hide the scene changes. This could just be because it is a movie clip and not what the actual movie will look like. From the knowledge I have gained I believe this scene in done with what the intent to keep people laughing and anticipating the rest of the movie. The next scene shows his friends and family trying to get him into rehab, while on the way to the rehab they are forced off the road and Doug (Justin Bartha) is taken hostage by as insurance by Marshall
(John Goodman) so that the “Wolf Pack” will help him...
