Diego Rivera is often depicted in films as a jolly, plump man, but that is far from the truth. Rivera was a master of his own art because he experienced life that most people would write stories about. His ideologies were ones that could cause someone to fall in love with him or be disgusted, but he was a man of many different truths. Often when I think of Diego Rivera, I remember in the 11th grade how my AP US History teacher told a snippet of how one of Diego Rivera's Murals were literally whitewashed over because it gave reference to communism, and the US had created Communism to be bitter for many people. Because of that I began to read about Communism and began to questions its importance, validity, and whether it was good or bad.

[tab] SHEBA, BABY Blaxploitation films are a type of genre that I get a kick out of. They are wild, gritty, full of nudity, and beautiful women. The last movie that checked all those boxes off was Coffy, which also starred Pam Grier (Coffy Review). It was a film full of boobs, violence and jive talking dudes getting blasted away by the righteous Pam Grier. I was hoping that the tradition would continue with Sheba, Baby, but unfortunately, Pam Grier was at a point in her career where she wanted to broaden her acting abilities and refused to do the movie if there was any nudity.
Then in 1997 he married a lady by the name of Jada Pinkett Smith.

In reading this shot one has to bear in mind that horror and particularly the slasher genre have traditionally suffered from a bad reputation; each year a myriad of horror films are released that just recycle the conventions, clichés or even narratives in the case of remakes of anterior films. Becoming a successful director in this genre means that one has to comprehend its spectator. The director has to excel at predicting audience’s reaction, misleading them with the goal of horrifying and shocking to experience the much sought for thanatotic pleasure. Sister Jude 's declaration "I see you for exactly who you are" is, therefore the director telling us that he is aware of the conventions and clichés and knows exactly how to manipulate and mislead his audience. This declaration becomes even more poignant due to the fact that Carrie’s(De Palma, US 1976) soundtrack “Bucket of Blood” is running in the background.
American author, Stephen King is known for his, rather, disturbing and on edge movies. Some might say he is the best when it comes to horror films. He knew the best ways to get under people 's skin, and when to do it. Each one of his movies took a different approach. There is a movie or everyone, and their fears.
It is full of foreshadowing, “Hotels like this aren’t interested when you come in but when your time is up…,” and sets the stage for the odd relationships and nature of the movie. In a time where the standard was the nuclear family, a risqué romance between two unmarried adults within just the opening pieces of the movie makes the audience somewhat appalled and intrigued. The sexual connotations and deviancy continues into the film as addressed in the parlor scene, just before Marion gets into the shower. Although this section of the film tends to get left behind by the shower scene, it really exemplifies the inner struggle that Norman faces with his sexual desires and his sexist attitudes toward women which were undoubtabley manifested in Norman by his mother. Norman even calls a woman a “doll” at one point.
He was obviously looking for a more creative outlet for his creative designs than trademarks, corporate logos, letterheads, TV commercials and packaging for which he was in constant demand. The answer proved to be film-making: imaginative documentaries, a single feature film, and pre-eminently title sequences for other directors ' work on which he sometimes received the credit of "visual consultant". His second wife, Elaine was seven years younger than him and a New Yorker who sang in an Andrews Sisters-style group with her older sisters and eventually relocated to Hollywood. She met Bass around 1956, and married him in 1961 and worked with him until his death in 1996. They eventually had a daughter named Jennifer Bass, who became a graphic designer later in her life.
No. I am the one who knocks!” (Vince Gilligan). This is why vicariously living through anti-heroes has become so popular in this day and age because people are able to become this invisible character in the hour that they are watching the show.

Dalton Trumbo is one of the Hollywood Ten, and he was blacklisted from Hollywood in 1947. He was a very accomplished screenwriter and writer that worked on various films such as “Spartacus,” “Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo,” and “Roman Holiday.” He didn’t start writing professionally until the 1930’s; before that he was a journalist and a writer, eventually moving on from novels to movie scripts. He began writing for the entertainment company Warner Bros. and his career took off from there. He quickly became a well-known, sought after writer in Hollywood, while writing novels on the side. It was around this time that he got married and started a family—he had three children with his wife Cleo Beth Fincher.
Also when Walter Thomas says, “It’s too bad, too, cause she wuz a right pretty li’l trick when he got huh” (68), I learned that Sykes really had done a number on her physically and emotionally. That went on for a awhile and I really got the point that nobody except Bertha liked Sykes. Whether it was intended or not, I thought Bertha being described as “a hunk uh liver wid hair on it” (70) was quite funny. Later on, when Sykes gets the rattle snake, it’s clear he has crossed the line and Delia is done putting up with him. Her normal meekness towards Sykes is gone and when she said “Ah hates you, Sykes” (72) then continued to tell him how extremely much she hates him, I knew with certainty she had enough and was going to do something.
“Frankenstein” has had its hands in each of these genres since the release of Mary Shelley’s original novel in 1818. While Shelley’s original novel was a blend of Gothic and horror fiction, many other production outlets used her story, changing its aspects entirely. No matter how Frankenstein was represented since 1818, his appearances always brought about excitement and success. In the year 2012, Columbia Pictures distributed a comedy film from Sony Pictures Animation titled, “Hotel Transylvania.” Even though this isn’t the first comedy-based flick that featured Frankenstein, it’s one of the newest. With that said, the Tartakovsky-directed film was centered around Dracula, who was in desperate need of help on his mission to find his friend Jonathan.
