Leslie Ogu COMM 1041 10/06/2016 -​ Movie Scene Presentations Day 3 Exam Next Tuesday ● Mostly multiple choice ● Study guide will be released soon ● Terms will be assigned today and need to be posted on discussion board by Tomorrow This is 40 ➢ When we add judgment into our communication, it negatively affects how effective we can get our message across. In order for communication to work, we have to be able to listen objectively to a person, and understand where they are coming from. Blue is the Warmest Color ➢ When someone has their feelings hurt, and/or emotions run wild, it becomes extremely difficult for someone to understand another person. Typically, this is when communication falls apart, and things begin to take a turn for the worse. Tropic Thunder ➢ People’s preconceived notions about other groups of people, or stereotypes, affects how we see and act towards them. In this movie, Robert Downey Jr.’s character does not realize these hidden perceptions and how his comments towards Alpa actually come off as racist. In order for us to effectively communicate with others, we have to be able to look past who that person is and/or accept who they are as a person, without assumptions. Shutter Island ➢ It is very difficult for us to communicate when our emotions run high. In this movie, Andrew has no idea when he both hates and loves his wife, as a result of her killing of their children. By this point, in this struggle of insanity, communication is lost and hard to regain. Good Will Hunting ➢ This movie did a pretty good job with communication as Sean was able to effectively speak with Will, and understand his past. Through his words, he is finally able to get through to Will and help him understand that his past wasn’t his own fault. Pride and Prejudice ➢ Social class is an interesting aspect of communication that plays a crucial role in certain cultures. In this movie, because the man is of higher status, he is encouraged against loving or pursuing the woman because she is of lower class. In the end, love seems to overcome societal preference as he proposes to her in the end. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ➢ Even when one thinks they forget their past, it always seems to come back in different forms - one being communication styles. In this movie, the previous lovers eventually realize who each other are through their interactions and conversations. Bowfinger ➢ A trigger word for Kit and it causes him to lose his sense of control. This interrupts his ability to communicate with others and as a result, people believe him to be crazy due to his belief in aliens. Eventually, he realizes his mistake, and is able to calm down. Whiplash ➢ Aggressive communication does not always get the point across. If we want someone to understand our point, we must meet them on a level playing field. Typical masculine communication styles cause disconnects in communication and usually result in our message not being understood. The Blind Side ➢ The phenomena of the self-fulfilling prophecy is probably one of the strongest influences in society today. When we assume things about a person and how they act, we will unconsciously treat them in a manner that causes them to confirm our beliefs. This is something we must all learn to fight and control if we want to truly understand others, and communicate effectively. The Princess Bride: Battle of Wits ➢ Aggressive styles of communication tend to be the least effective. Being able to overcome masculine stereotypical communication styles can greatly improve how effectively we get our message across.
