Along the coastlines of the U.S.A, Africa and Australia, sharks, especially the Great Whites, have received a bad reputation as very aggressive predators that like to attack and eat human beings. There is a lengthy, tangles and gory relationship “between Carcharodon Carcharias and Homo sapiens”(ReefQuest). The Great White’s notoriety as a ruthless animal of prey is well-earned, yet these marine animals are not, as earlier considered, indiscriminate ‘’eating machines’’. “They are ambush hunters, taking prey by surprise from below or behind”(Encyclopedia of Life). Despite common beliefs about the threat to human beings, they do not attack people without a definite or convincing reason; therefore, the commonly held view of the “man-eater” is erroneous.
In addition, pushing the ship until the engine blows up now Quint, Matt Harper and Chief Brody are stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean. The realism of that scene was great we finally see the teeth of the shark and how massive the shark actually is. In Australia two known shark videographers Ron and Valerie Taylor filmed all of the extra footage for the film. Uniquely, bringing another layer of Authenticity to the film. For example, another great scene was when they used the Jaws theme to build suspense, when Matt Harper decides to build the cage and decides to stick poison into the shark to finally end this and the shark attacks the cage.
In conclusion Blackfish is gives audiences a shocking, aggressive and deeply compelling look into cruel practices of marine parks for decades that will change the way you look at captive/trained killer whales and other animals. In watching this documentary has significantly opened my eyes regarding the brutal treatment and methods of capturing wild animals giving me a greater sympathy for orcas in parks such as SeaWorld. This startling documentary will surprise audiences as Cowperthwaite is unrelenting in showing the fatal consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity while also critiquing of the cruel and immoral practises of
Spielberg continues to create tension in the action sequences with the shark by suggesting its presence once more with the yellow compressed air barrel, and the prosthetic shark is only fully seen when it attacks Quint. This scene focuses on shocking the audience with the graphic scene of Quint being eaten, as the creature that summoned so much suspense and dread earlier in the film, is arguably no longer frightening in its full form. In conclusion, the cinematography in Jaws functions as a way of creating suspense, the shot choices made are able to manipulate the audience into believing there is a shark, when the real animal is not fully seen on screen until minute 81. The shots used throughout
Shark Wars EJ ALTBACKER Did you know even under water there is a war going on, not by humans but by sharks. It is not all peace in Shark Wars written by Ej Altbacker.

It is true that sharks are one of the animal kingdom’s most vicious predators; however, it is important to note that humans were not naturally included to the sharks’ list of preys. Encounters between sharks and humans only became disastrous when the latter had trespassed and disturbed its domain so as a result, the sharks perceive humans as a threat to them or to their pups if they are nursing. In some ways, “Jaws” provided justification for humans to slaughter sharks, henceforth; it had received some negative reviews from other spectators and critics. Unfortunately, the number of sharks in the wild is decreasing globally. The movie had encouraged resorts owner near the beaches to show the brutality of the shark instead of imposing the advocacies that would protect these sea creatures such as limiting the passage of people where sharks were known to thrive.
The idea of a shark coming up from the underneath and ripping off a limb or two is very terrifying. The use of the teeth is to give the audience the idea that this shark is harmful and will do anything to hurt anyone. Another example of how the designer used fear to drive emotions is by the use of darkness. Many of people are afraid of darkness, and in this poster, this huge shark is emerging out of the dark blue ocean showing that it is evil and mysterious. This poster for Spielberg’s film, Jaws, was innovative in many ways.
After the expository phase of both the movie and novel, the shark attacks its first victim--a drunk woman named Crissy. The kill set off a bloodlust instinct in the shark that made it hungry for more, and that there is more food for him at this beach; This is why it keeps coming back, because normally sharks to not attack humans unless they are in distress. Unfortunately for the Crissy, she was swimming in an unconventional way which made her appear to the shark as prey. Throughout the rest of both the story and novel the shark proves as a nuisance to the mayor, Chief Brody, and the people of the town. After the death of the guy in the pond, and near death experience of his child, Brody seems to realize that this is a pressing issue that needs to be resolved now.
Tigers are likely to go extinct. After years of saving the tigers, what danger could still exist for these creatures? In the article, “6 Reasons We Should Still Worry About Tigers Survival of The Big Cats in The Wild is Far from Guaranteed,” written by John R.
