Institution and Audience

Institution and Audience

Recently I went to the cinema to see some of the latest films. This included ‘Oblivion’, ‘Monsters University’ and ‘Despicable Me 2’.


I went to go and see Oblivion as the trailer looked very interesting and also it’s a science fiction film, and I enjoy watching that genre.

Other factors which contributed with me wanting to go and see it was the trailer. The trailer was exciting and action-packed and looked exciting. It included a variety of strange scenes which drew my attention.
Another factor would be the actors. Well known actors including Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman played major roles in the film and I was intrigued to see their roles in it.
I enjoyed the film due to it's genre and the action put into it. Although it wasn't realistic and straightforward, it had a good plot.
The factors which impacted on my enjoyment was the thrill. It had speechless moments and had me in shock.
To conclude, Oblivion was worth watching as the actors were great, the scenes were realistic, and it lived up to my expectation.

Monsters University

I went to go and see Monsters University as I enjoyed the first one and I wanted to see if it was at the same standard as the first one.

Other factors which contributed to me wanting to go and see it was the characters. In the previous one the characters were funny and I enjoy comedy, so I wanted to see if they still included comedy into it.
I enjoyed the film as it was suitable for people who like to laugh (which is most people) and people who enjoy a plot twist.
The factors which impacted on my enjoyment was the added characters which weren't in the previous film. The producers made them look funny and sound funny too.
Overall Monsters University was a great film as it brings families together as it can be enjoyed by everyone.

Despicable Me 2

I went to go and see Despicable Me 2 at the cinema because I enjoyed the first one and wanted to see the second one too.

Other factors which contributed to me wanting to go and see it was again the characters. They're funny and are all different which adds to the creativity of the film. 
I enjoyed the film as it was much like Monsters University; the plot and characters were different but I enjoyed the humor of it. 
The factors which impacted on my enjoyment were the characters voices. A lot of them were high pitched or had accent's which made them funny. They also gave the characters weird features, for example, Gru the main character had a pointy nose and a strange accent; and the minions were yellow, small and all had big eyes.
Overall in Despicable Me 2 there was never a boring moment, so was highly entertaining for everyone watching. The film approaches all ages as families can watch it together.
