John Singleton’s film, Boyz N the Hood, displays the challenging upbringing of adolescents who have to live with harsh conditions around not only their home but also their surrounding town. The film compares the differences between the lifestyles of Tre Styles and his friends’, Darren and Ricky Baker. Darren and Ricky are half-brothers who are nothing alike. Singleton demonstrates the importance of male leadership in a home in the ghetto of Los Angeles by comparing the difference between the lifestyles of Tre and his friends. While many adolescents in the hood have close friendships, some form close relationships by assembling gangs and create a world of violence due to alcohol abuse, which together ultimately breeds discrimination.
The film brings light to issues that the general public doesn’t really realize are happening. Drug and gang violence are large issues in America and this movie shows that. The largest example showing violence from the movie is when Ricky gets shot by the Bloods in the leg because of issues that Doughboy created (Singleton, 1991). This violent scene has the biggest effect on the audience and it truly educates people watching the movie. This also leads to another message that the director cooperating through the
A student watching the film can feel the true emotions of the characters because they, themselves, may have faced discrimination or loss in their lives. The characters in the film, no matter their race, are all victims of discrimination. Sal, a white Italian, is betrayed in a black community. While Raheem is killed by police officers. The setting of the film is in an urban part of Brooklyn, New York.
Colourful in every sense of the word, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off weaves the tale of a grand adventure. A collection of jaunty film angles and sidebars that break the fourth wall, it outlines the mischievous acts of Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) on a day he declares too beautiful to spend at school. The film is as carefree as its protagonist, and the disposition of the film is colloquial in every sense. The buoyant storyline is what makes it so favourable and it is a combination of quirky characters, engaging dialogue, and recurring motifs that make this method of storytelling so intriguing.

The film Boyz N’ the hood follows the lives of a group of young African American men growing up in the hood where poverty, crime and violence are rampant.

The film Blackboard Jungle, written and directed by Richard Brooks, depicts the reality of the desegregated all male school, North Manual Trades High School. In this film Richard Dadier receives a job as a teacher and through the film he attempts to bring order and learning in to the classroom. The two main students in this film are Artie West and Gregory Miller. Artie West is white and is portrayed as the antagonist in the film because of his complete disregard of authority. In contrast, Miller is black and is initially defiant but in the end he agrees to Dadier terms.
In particular I believe the writer focuses more on Tre Styles and his point of view. Those that viewed this movie got to witness how racism, violence, gangs, and growing up in the hood shaped the future of all three boys. The movie starts out in the year 1984 focusing on Tre Styles and how his behavior in school forces his mom to take him to live with his father. His father has more strict rules in his home and his mother believes that he needs his dad in his life to turn him and shape him into a young mature man. Tre immediately reunites with his childhood friends Ricky and Darrin and they spend time catching up.
The film starts out with an African American man walking in the suburbs. He sees a car and is frightened. A person in a hood strangles him from behind and kidnaps him. This illustrates the fear African Americans have in a white society. The movie then fasts forwards to New York City and turns the focus on Chris who is a successful young photographer.
The late 19th century consisted of rigid work hours for children, the growth of strikes, and the use of yellow journalism. It was a challenging time for anyone below the upper class to live in. This is demonstrated throughout Newsies, a Broadway Musical displaying the challenges from this time period. Child labor, a major part of the movie, was the way of life and consisted of young children doing hard work as a vital part of the nation’s economy and income of families of the time. Another part of the movie, strikes, were the people’s way of refusing to work as a result of not getting their desires.
I found this movie interesting because I agree with what the film implied on how all patient share a commonality called vulnerability. In the movie Wit, you are allowed a peek into the medical world that shows disregard for humanity. The film revolves around an English professor, Vivian Bearing, being diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, the treatment, and how her professional status is taken away for being a patient. A major theme of this movie is dependency on others by chronicling Vivian 's trial treatment and it allows the viewers a peek into the world of a patient dying from cancer. After watching the film, I noticed that there were a lot of significant moral issues, which correlates with the nursing profession.
Analysis of The Help How is it possible to be a woman of action when taking action could be a deathtrap? Living in a world where words are as sharp as knives makes change seem like an impossible feat that one could be risking life and limb for. In the 2011 film The Help, one woman’s words attempt to raise a courageous and just army out of a never-ending sea of racial discrimination and bigotry.
In 2004 the film “Motorcycle Diaries” was released depicting the motorcycle journey that Ernesto “Che” Guevara and Alberto Granado took throughout South America. This journey was important because it influenced Guevara’s political ideals and led to his involvement in the cuban revolution and his famous persona as “Che”. The Director Walter Salles understood the importance of the story and wanted to tell it in a less political more emotionally based light (Confluencia, pg.109.) Salles did a great deal of research over a span of three years for this film. He spoke with family members of Alberto and Ernesto, he followed the journey to find realistic shooting locations and studied asthma, leprosy and Inca history (Travelogue, pg16).
