Plot: Ex-fighter pilot and taxi driver Ted Striker (Robert Hays)  doesn’t want to get in airplane after he crashes. As a result, he is unable to hold a responsible job. His wartime girlfriend, Elaine Dickinson (Julie Hagerty), now a flight attendant, leaves him. Therefore, he enter a flight where Elaine is attending. 
 Rating(8/10): The movie is hilarious. The story and comedy blend amazingly well. I feel the actors acted well, depending on their role. One thing that i didn’t like was that there were few fiction editing happening and it didn’t look well.
Mise-en-Scene: The setting was a small plane. It really looked like they shot in a plane. I like the crops, and how they used a “autopilot”. It gave more entertainment to the audience. It made the comedy amazing.
Shots and Angles: Since the setting is a plane, there was long shots. And they couldn’t have crane shots, since the plane is quite. The shots are direct face shots and angles like close-up.

Plot: The beginning starts with a mirror reflection, Copper is leaving to travel round the world. To get away after his dad’s death. He stops in London, and meets Sonja. Sonja is professional gamer. She persuades Copper to go and test in a huge gaming company. When he is there, he is being tested by his fears.

Interesting Parts: The series’ name is Black Mirror. What is so cool is that they always start with a mirror reflection. And this part is so amazing, that the mirror is so clean that I thought the shots was done with out the reflection.

Shots and Angles: There are few amazing shot of this episode. The first amazing shot was when the crane shot went ground to sky, when Copper was leaving his house. But then the sky turns white and then out of no where Copper is in the plane. Most beautiful shot i haven’t see.

Mise-en-Scene: During the game Copper is playing, the setting is described as 19th century. The house really looks like a normal house but without technology. (In 19th century, no technology was invented.)

Rating(10/10): This episode, didn’t just describe gaming, but much more. I loved it, and I will plan to start watching the series from Episode 1.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

Plot: Soon to be married couple, Brad and Janet is stuck in mansion due to a flat tire during the storm. The mansion is not of an ordinary man, but Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. The couple meet weird and wild characters like a creepy butler, and rocking biker. Dr. Frank-N-Furter reveal her newest creation, a muscular man, “Rocky Horror”.

Rating (7.5/10): At first I was clueless of the movie. The story wasn’t clear. Also, I was confused why the movie was called The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when there was no horror. But when then the story become little bit clear. And when Dr. Frank-N-Furter revealed Rocky Horror, the story was crystal clear.

Shots and Angles: This is a movie, that they used crane shots independently. There would reason why the shot was take. Like when Janet and Brad entered Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s house, the camera was too close to them self. But five minutes later, the crane shots is adding when the followers of Dr. Frank-N-Furter were dancing.

Mise-en-Scene: The costumes were so weird, but it was perfect for this movie. Each costume represent the actor. I really liked that Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s outfit made people think. Like I feel the outfit is so good and weird that why this movie is so famous.
