The portrayal of Medicine in TV Shows

Audience fascination with medicine has resulted in a large number of riveting TV series pertaining to the topic being made. Analyse the various aspects and ethical dilemmas of medicine portrayed on various medical shows.(even the lesser known ones)

Can soundtracks make or break films?

A great soundtrack is so much more than just a collection of good songs. It can pull the story along while somehow effortlessly blending into the background. The right one often helps define a movie. Analyse the effect the much-recognised soundtracks had in such films as Forrest Gump, Drive, The Departed, Pulp Fiction, The Dark Knight and others.

  • Great topic! I would recommend choosing around three examples for clarity (one that works because of the score, one that doesn't work because of the score, one that is strengthened by the score). Also, score VS soundtrack, which did you mean? The score is in the film, the soundtrack is a supplementary collection, typically for advertising. – m-cubed 3 months ago

  • Interesting topic...Would be great to do an analysis on animated movies vs live-action, and whether that plays a role in how important the soundtrack is??? – MikeySheff 3 months ago

  • I buy soundtracks based on their content of music acquired by production. I have several soundtracks in my current Vinyl record collection. If you collect them always purchase VINYL RECORDINGS when available you will be glad you did. – WilliamBailey 3 months ago

  • Amazing topic, I would look at live action and animated films, as well as the musical score and songs added into the movie because there can be a difference in the mood the two different types create -GingerSavvy – GingerSavvy 3 months ago

Mary Morstan's Impact on the equation between Sherlock and Watson

Unlike her counterpart in the novel, the makers of Sherlock made a bold decision with their attempt at giving Mary Morstan a very prominent story arc in the third season of the hit TV series. However, the first episode of this season put a tragic end to this promising character’s role. Now, with her part on the Sherlock series over, analyze what part her character played in the lives of the leads, how Sherlock and Watson had their individual priorities changed and what changes may be anticipated in the equation shared by them,especially considering that her death was partly caused by Sherlock’s actions.
Also, with Molly Hooper still having a very minor role in most episodes, analyze the consequences of the death of the only major female character in the series and whether this was justified(the makers have stated on record that her character was diverting all the attention from Sherlock-Watson and their bromance) considering that her murky past still held the promise of being fodder for more episodes…

  • I imagine one will not be able to fully complete this article until the season has had its run, as Mary's death will no doubt factor into Sherlock and Watson's relationship - I wouldn't call her part "over" quite yet. I like the mention of Mary's novel counterpart, yet it's sad they created such a strong female character to have her die in what I considered a rather ridiculous and undeserving manner. – Karen 6 months ago

Thank you so much. Unlike before, it is a matter of pride that Indian films now are tackling an increased number of topical, relevant and often uncomfortable issues. Makes for interesting viewing!
Face/Off indeed had a very interesting premise and like you yourself pointed out, though the medicine was shoddy at best, it was still a very entertaining film.

Thank you Karen. Indeed, the topic was very vast and it was my humble attempt to put forth all aspects of the idea without going into too much unnecessary detail. Further articles inspired from the various facets of this piece are always welcome.

Which movie are you referring to Tom, I do not think that it could be Memento…
Please specify. However, I do agree that occasionally some medical films if not done right may seem a bit boring to the audience at large.

I really liked how you managed to cover so many aspects of the Bollywood circus. It is also interesting to see how so many Indian works and actors are finding recognition in Hollywood. Special mentions to ‘Shaun of the Dead’ (where a Hindi song plays on the radio at the start of the zombie outbreak) and ‘Inside Man'(‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ is used in both the opening and closing credits)
