Analysis of "Dog house" !

I've chosen Dog house because its that kind of film we want to make and its a popular one as well.

0:00-0:20   The first few seconds the producer logos of course come up first in that typical scary and dark style with no music and black background. No wonder it's a horror movie ... But there were no popular producer logos with like "lionsgate" or "warner bros.", "universal" or all the other ones which are famous for there horror movies. So I expected as I first watched the movie a total crappy Film.

0:20-0:27  Nice establishing shot of London (can see the buckingham palace), which is like moving forward like a zoom in but its not a zoom. I thing they used that movement to make it look exciting and not boring. After that shot the audience can see like in a long shot a few houses of the lower class I would guess. You can hear in the background like police sounds as well so that represents that people in lower classes live in criminal areas.

0:28-1:00   A "god-view" shot as I call it where we can see from above whats going on. It is 1pm and the man is still in the bad and all around the bed is food lying. The mise-en-scene and the fact that he lives in a lower class style represents that this kind of people are lazy and live like pigs and have no real life. Later on in the movie it gets even more worse...  Something I noticed is that everyone of the boys has got the same phone sound. It might be a running gag because this song appears like 20 times in the film. To show the audience who is who they wrote every characters name in that comic style while a freeze frame 0:47.

1:04-1:50   Middle shot of another guy who just called his friend, which get a shoe from an angry woman against the head. He is like the "macho" or "womanizer" of the group as we can find out in there conversation as he forgot her name and she attacked him. They used the mise-en-scene really good here. The womans black dress connotes like danger and that the man is driving a sports car although he has no actual money just support the "macho" fact of him. The same name effects on him as well.

2:00- 5:00  the same what I described above occurs again and again just with other guys with other personalities. So I don't analyse them. In all they have one thing in common. They all have problems with woman or with there wifes so they meet each other and go for a trip somewhere to chill out.

I personally really liked that movie because its fuulll of representation of the bad style ... and I just like the humour which is really unique and all that Ideas they used and the music was just perfect in harmony with the situations and the camera movements were at some points really epic ! So I just recommend to watch that film :)
