① fall on deaf ears: 耳を傾けてもらえない、顧みられない
③ de rigueur: 形式上必要で
"It became de rigueur for every fantasy and science fiction film in the late 1980s to have a morphing character"(Decherney, p. 118).
④ amorphous: 無定形の、組織のない
"The T-1000 was not depicted as a figure on a computer screen or given an amorphous shape, as in earlier films" (Decherney, pp. 118-119).
⑤ judiciously: 賢明に
"There are only forty-seven CGI shots in the movie, but Cameron used them judiciously to give the impression of many more"(Decherney, p.119).
⑥ free rein:行動の完全な自由
"Films like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004), produced by Job Avnet, and Sin City (2005), based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller, started to be filmed entirely on motion-capture stages, giving filmmakers free rein to superimpose the settings"(Decherney, pp. 119-120).
⑦ windfall: 意外な授かり物、たなぼた
"The technical and creative boom created a windfall for the studios"(Decherney, p.121).
"George Lucas had the video, known as The Phantom Edit, enjoined from circulation" (Decherney, p.124).
⑨ surreptitiously: 内密に
"An employee of the talent agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) joined with experienced filmmakers to surreptitiously make a video blog, or 'vlog,' Lonelygirl15 (2006-2008), showing that professional talent could raise the quality of new internet genres"(Decherney, p.125).
