He was so clever, so in control and even though clinically insane you couldn’t help to feel a strong attraction to him. 1 Patrick Bateman in American Psycho www.nypost.com No list of sexy sociopaths would be complete without the legendary Patrick Bateman. Christian Bale was cast in the role of Patrick Bateman in the 2000 black comedy/horror flick American Psycho (based on the book of the same name written by Bret Easton Ellis) and the casting couldn’t have been better. Bale got under the skin of the character perfectly, helping to make the movie the cult classic it is
LaBeet comes across as a charismatic freedom fighter who you almost root for. He was even able to get a detective admitting to torturous interview methods on camera. He did well to explain the race and independence situation in VI and America, showing sound-bites from real people with real views at that time. I do not know if his intention was to make the audience sympathize with LaBeet, but after the hijacking scene and by the end of the movie, I felt that while he made bad choices, he definitely made points that I found agreeable. He was dubbed the “Most Polite Hijacker”, so maybe he just is
“Ooooh Child Things are Gonna Get Easier” Or Will They? Tupac Shakur is one of the greatest African American rap artists the hip-hop world was blessed to have. Tupac’s music is some of the most dynamic, influential, and self-powering music from the 1990s. Even though his messages for a higher respect for women, an end to gang violence, and a better world were over shadowed by his arrest on a first-degree sexual abuse and him being shot on multiple occasions, they can still be heard in his music today. His song “Keep Ya Head Up” shows just how passionate he was about the topics his songs reflect.
No matter your age, this film is guaranteed to make you laugh. Their accents combined with the hilarious Jamaican traditions make this film the perfect combination of comedy and suspense. In arguably the funniest scene in the movie, Derice, Junior, Yul, Sanka and Coach Blitzer are deciding what to name the sled. Yul recommends naming the sled Tululah, and Sanka immediately replies with “that sounds like a 2 dollar hooker,” only for him to realize that Tululah is Yul’s mothers name. The lesson taught here is that people should not judge what other people are thinking because they do not know exactly who they are and where they come from.
The men experience love, loss, and death at rate that is inconceivable to someone that has never experienced the theatre of war. Band of Brothers is a perfect example of the saying, “Out of the greatest tragedies come the best stories.” Through beautiful cinematography, storyline, and historical accuracy Band of Brothers is the ultimate glimpse into the lives of the brave men of “Easy” Company.

In the end of the film, Vivien receives an honorary degree for his work, achieving the recognition and gaining his long overdue respect. When he stares at his portraits that hung besides Dr. Blalock’s portrait, his eyes are filled with tears. Regarded as one of hip-hop 's most introspective and insightful artists, Mos Def has shaped a successful career that transcends music. For his portrayal of Vivien Thomas, he was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe, and won the Image Award. In this film, Vivian has to be played in a understated manner, while still having the determination and self-respect that keep him going, and Mos Def does a nice job.
Douglass has shown how religious slaveholders are the worst especially when entertainment comes into play. The first being from one of his slaveholders Master Thomas, he whipped a young woman while reading a quote from the scripture to explain his reason for whipping her. The next example was with his other Master Mr.Covey, he would go to church and preach the word but come back beating slaves and going against the almighty God. The last example that is shown is again shown with Mr.Covey, he was guilty of compelling his woman slave to commit the sin of adultery. All of the examples illustrate that religious slaveholders are worst than non-religious slaveholders.
Babes in Boyland: Women in Modern Media Oftentimes media portrays women as objects. During boxing matches my mother would always point out the fact that men always get to be this “skilled heroic athletes”, while women are always depicted as a “pretty pleasant eye candy”. Gender role has been an issue ever since the invention of modern media, for modern advertising techniques focus on humor, satire, sex, and very often the objectification of women. Carl’s Jr./ Hardee’s advertisement campaign exemplifies the wrongful depiction of women as sexual objects. In recent ads for its “Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger”, and “South West Watty Welt” Carl’s Jr./ Hardee's use of overwhelming sexual content blatantly oversexualize, and objectifies women.
Inspired by a Thug In the eyes of society, Tupac Amaru Shakur, better known as 2Pac, is the furthest person away from being a positive inspiration. He was a high school dropout, drug dealer, and one of hip-hop 's most notorious thugs. How is a person with a background of such deviance considered to be an inspiration for anybody? The answer is simple, his music. Tupac could arguably be the most detrimental celebrity of all time; however, it 's his music that made him my biggest inspiration to pursue music as a career.
Here’s why: Straight Outta Compton, the biopic about the greatest controversial rap group NWA, was one of the most excellent and powerful movies that I have ever seen.

While most pop stars are communicating and send the same message, the message behind Pink’s message has substance and can resonate with youth and teens of today’s generation. In the her “stupid girl” Pink tackles the issue of women as sexual objects in today 's mainstream videos through satire. In the first verse, “what happened to the dream of a girl president? She’s dancing in the video next to 50 cents.” This show two contrast between a women of power and the image of a women as a sex object in a music video. She also address how feminism is slipping away as those girls sell their bodies and losing their dignity and respect.
Straight Outta Compton A film that falls under the category of being “controversial” tends to shy away from mainstream audience because of it’s subject matter or lack of diversity. For example, filmmakers like Tyler Perry only caters to the African American audience and don’t have any success overseas with different viewers. However, this stereotype defuse once “Straight Outta Compton” was release during the summer of 2015. The film grossing over $201 million worldwide. “Straight Outta Compton” is a biopic about the hip-hop controversal group N.W.A (Niggas with Attitude) and how the rise to fame came with a price.
However shortly after, I saw Delia Jones would most likely be the main character. I took in the description of Delia’s occupation and had no clue about what the story would actually be about until Sykes was introduced into the story. Sykes tossing the bull whip onto Delia’s shoulder like it was a snake seemed pretty cruel since it caused her to scream in terror. When I read, “Sykes, what you throw dat whip on me like dat?” (65), I immediately realized Delia was African American and soon after with more dialogue, I realized Sykes was African American also. Reading the rest of the dialogue during their argument was actually kind of comical due to Hurston writing how their dialect would sound.
