Individual Spoof task..

I’m aiming not to leave everything to the last minute; part of the narrative project is to create our own ‘Swapping Genres Spoof of a movie along with a poster of your choice. I’ve tried to address everything onto my blog as much as I can in the time given. Time for me to establish the film and type of genre I’m interested in changing, initially thinking about a film which everyone knows first of all, something which has created a huge impact to film industry perhaps and technically a decent film. Godfather into a musical? Using influences from Moulin Rouge? Hmm… decisions decisions, more thought and time is needed here I think.
Researching the genres:
  1. ANIMATED (Greatest Films: Animated Films)Film: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
  2. FANTASY (Greatest Films:Fantasy Films) Film: The Wizard of Oz (1939)
  3. GANGSTER (Greatest Films:Gangster (Crime) Films) Film: The Godfather (1972)
  4. SCIENCE FICTION (Greatest Films:Science Fiction Films) Film: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
  5. WESTERN (Greatest Films:Western Films) Film: The Searchers (1956)
  6. SPORTS (Greatest Films:Sports Films) Film: Raging Bull (1980)
  7. MYSTERY (Greatest Films: Mystery Films) Film: Vertigo (1958)
  8. ROMANTIC COMEDY (Greatest Films:Comedy Films) Film: City Lights (1931)
  9. COURTROOM DRAMA(Greatest Films:Drama Films) Film: To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
  10. EPIC (Greatest Films:Epic Films) Film: Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

“Classy: Possessing elegance, the attribute of being tastefully designed, decorated and maintaining refined grace and dignified propriety.”

“Grindhouse (Exploitation film): A type of film that eschews the expense of "quality" productions in favour of making films on-the-cheap, attracting the public by exciting their more prurient interests.”
