The Longest Yard (Remake)

I was a little lost trying to figure out something to write about for my blog this week. I ended up getting distracted while brainstorming and watching Youtube videos. Then I found myself watching the "Funniest Moments in The Longest Yard" and I noticed some interesting film techniques.

In analyzing scene from The Longest Yard it was interesting to me to see how the film has changed for me now that I have been studying film. It is one of my childhood favorites and I never noticed until now how spoon fed the shots where. Each and every shot in the film is showing something

intended. Each reaction shot, every play, and all the pans/tilts. It was a very interesting and easy film to break down.

While I still enjoy the film I just found it interesting to see how formulaic its approach in records to camera usage was.
