Throughout life we are told to express our individuality and swim against the stream of the general population to put emphasis on the characteristics that make us, in short, individuals. Cherishing what makes an individual special and different is what establishes roots in creativity and self expression, however there is a forced false sense of comradery in today’s society that takes the form of involvement with the masses; peer pressure forces many people to fall into the mold of an average character. The Academy award winning film, “The Incredibles” displays the themes of expressing one’s true self and special qualities, and in contrast repression by society to fit a basic mold. These themes are elaborated on through the development of the main characters and expressed further through the supporting roles and their dialogue and endeavors.
History has a tendency to repeat itself through actions and moments. This is evident when comparing two epic heroes: Iron Man and Beowulf.

Education has been a major influence on government policy and social standards concerning American youth. With hard work and education, one can better themselves and open up more opportunities for financial and social success. Waiting for Superman directed by Oscar winner, Davis Guggenheim, counters that the current education system is failing students by limiting their upward mobility, particularly among minority and low income groups. The documentary advocates for a radical change in the modern education system, modeled after charter school curriculums. Even though these successful schools produce great students many children, majority African American and Hispanic, are being left behind. In Maya Angelou’s

Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel team super hero film. Nonetheless, it is controversial to the audience whether it fits the sub-genre of a team-up film such as The Avengers.

In addition, Gunn uses makeups to not make any of the roles too standout because they all have unique appearances that balance out on screen.
In Star Wars IV New Hope you see several things that are like our world. Like how people negotiate business deals with each other. In the video, Han Soto reminds me of a used car salesman. Trying to convince you that this vehicle is a life changer with stories about how great it is. It sounds all good until he tells you the ridiculous price. Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan offer them a new deal and Han Soto wanted the money up front first. Once the deal got done between both parties you learn why Han Soto wanted so much money. He had a debt with someone and was trying to avoid paying it until Greedo (the debt collector) came. Another thing I notice was the killing of Greedo. A lot of People witness the killing and everyone pretty much ignored it or don 't want to be involved in that solution. Typical human behavioral in my opinion. My last similar event I say had to be the stormtroopers behaviors towards the group. They reminded me of the police and how they carry myself in society.
In the events of Civil War in the MCU, the conflict started with the world making the Avengers choose a side, evidently tearing them apart.

Consequently, they we’re forced to make a decision few will agree with, thus making more confusion. The conflict was fueled by letting themselves destroy one another as well as Zemo’s plan to destroy themselves one by one.
Importance of Artifact: This artifact is important because it displays one individual’s courage and integrity to stand for what they believe is right. Captain America has always been a symbol of American rebellion and freedom since his conception in the original comic books. This theme is still alive today in this modern adaptation of his story in the 2016 film when he refuses to sign the Sokovia Accords (peace treaty agreement), a legal document that gives the United Nations control over the Avengers, even if it means fighting his friends.
I read the review of a kid’s film, “The Lego Movie” by Christy Lemire. The author seemed to be very surprised by the way she reacted to the film. She felt that it went beyond the traditional genre for children and provided a response in her review. What she felt astounding her, so much that she stated how the old cliché saying “I laughed, I cried” was very much true for her. The common expectations about the genre of the film that she points out in her review is catchy theme songs, predictable scenes, hacky punchlines, and an exhausting simple message. While reading most reviews about kid’s films, most authors state similar opinions that kid’s films are usually produced mostly for the younger generations to enjoy. In this case, she challenges her readers to watch this film because it’s
It is Captain America’s duty to not just protect the American people, but to lead and guide them. He is the face of all that America stands for from his star spangled suit to his values and heroism. Captain America symbolizes freedom and protection. I feel like he 's often understood to symbolize America, but he stands for more than that. He had never run from a fight and always insisted on standing up for himself and his beliefs. His ability to keep fighting for what he believed in, no matter the consequences, is a strong characteristic of his. He proved that nobody should ever give up hope because giving up is never an option for something you truly believe in.
