My favorite movie genre has to be the good old thriller. I love movies that get me amped up or put me on the edge of my seat the entire time and that are exciting to watch. Ones where there might be a few frightening aspects to them but no real gore or bloodshed maybe just a jump scare or two. I like thrillers over horror because I feel thrillers have more meaning behind them and the actors have a purpose being there rather than just to get killed in the movie. The movies I chose as examples to use are The Birds (1963), Alfred Hitchcock, IT (2017), Andy Muschietti, and Get Out (2017), Jordan Peele. All three of these movies while very different, are some of the most exciting thrillers I’ve ever seen with very likeable characters who all have meaning in the film and who you all root for. The fright or suspense aspect that comes attached to every great thriller is not hard to miss in these films as well, which just adds to the effects of these movies and makes it so hard to look away from the screen. The final great thing about these films are the intensity of not only the build ups, but each one of their climaxes as well. Each one of them are unique and vigorous in their own way and truly keep you on edge throughout the entire scene.
The Content and meaning behind all three of these movies are very different. In the movie The Birds although very chaotic and creepy throughout most of the movie, the subtle meaning behind it that man people over look I feel is mostly about love. The main characters Melanie Daniels and Mitch Brenner are in love throughout the entire movie and although for most of the movie it’s subtle it becomes very obvious towards the end. I believe the birds attacking the town are an example of forces trying to stop their love and this movie shows how strong of a force love truly is. Another hurdle they must overcome in the movie is Mitch’s mother as she is not very fond of Melanie. This is a very unique and different meaning behind most thrillers, but one that works so well throughout this movie. In the movie IT, the real meaning behind this movie is teamwork and showing how anything can be accomplished if you work together. As the gang of children in this movie work together to overcome their fears and defeat the ultimate enemy being the monster “IT” in the end. This movie really does do a great job of taking a horror movie and turning it into more of a thriller with a meaningful story behind it that anyone can learn from. Get Out is the third film I chose and actually might have the deepest meaning out of all three. This movie does a great job in showing modern day racism and how it works. It does this by showing your classic white suburbia family who claims to “love black people” and everything about them and what they do, but in reality (just like many people in the world today) don’t do anything about the racism issue and actually don’t even really see the black people in the movie as even part of the human...
