Ryan Fianza TH 208 Prof. Bisesti 4-24-07 Discussion Points Name of Film: Boyz N’ the Hood Initial Impressions: - Gang violence is a major problem in the city of Los Angeles - Jerry-Curls was the trend in the early 90’s. - John Singleton is the director. - Motion picture debut for Ice Cube, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Unfortunately, their acting career is an all-time low, hence their latest movies. - Through-out the movie, there were multiple times the cinematographer used medium-shots to show the whole entire environment at the same time focusing on the character. For example, the beginning of movie had little Tre walking down street, while in the background you see the lifestyle of the Los Angeles Area. - There was a reference to “Stand by Me”, while the kids were walking on the railroad tracks looking for the dead body. - Sports were one of the main and sometimes always way out of the hood. - The black cop has faced too much crime that it caused him to look-down at his own people. - One of my favorite shots of the movie was when all three of the murderers were shown falling down in slow-motion. - Close-up was used when Furius and Tre hugged after Ricky died, which emphasized the emotion of the scene. - Mother became successful, by going to school. However, never really came back for his son. -
