IN THIS LESSON WE WERE TAUGHT THE TWO TYPES OF FONTS:
SERIF FONTS- SUCH AS TIMES AND COURIER

The font used in the promotion of PEARL HARBOUR is a serif font. This suggests that it is old fashioned and more sophisticated. this also suggests that it is of a historical context. The higher case also shows order and regimentation and represents the main importance of the characters.
This is a sharp contrast to the ROCKY cover
Rocky used the font Franklin Gothic Heavy. this suggests that the film is much more modern and contemporary. the film itself s situated in modern America which is urban and busy. the boldness of the title represents the charcters personality and physical appearnce. the main charcter who is a boxer fits the title of the film cover.
