“Deep down, Clark 's essentially a good person... and deep down, I 'm not”(Batman). This quote proves that Batman is evil because it shows that he thinks he is a bad person. Normally people think that they are good, and those who know they are evil are truly evil. In addition, a hero is one who is inspiring, although Batman does inspire many societies he inspires them to fight evil using their physical strength and that isn’t considered heroic, thus he is not a
You've got Batman, Superman and these Saints.” This relates back to the traits of an antihero raising the doubts of morality. When society cannot decipher whether they are good or evil, that is when you have an antihero. The use of these interviews at the end of the film really puts what a hero and an antihero is into perspective. Some would say that they are evil due to their use of lethal force upon their victims. While others, would say they are saints for riding the streets of crime and
In every Disney movie the villain is generally portrayed as evil or crazy, and it is taken as a personality type, but Disney movies also tend to sneak in a backstory for the villain geared towards explaining how they had come to be evil. And in the end, the villain is usually convinced that they should be “good” (again). So from this perspective, it may appear more so that the villain is not a personality type but a product of the situations they were in each moment that lead to he or she becoming the villain. Malcolm Gladwell is an award winning author who constructed a theory labeled The Power of Context, a chapter in his book The Tipping Point, to prove that people, such as villains in Disney movies, are products of their situations. In essence, to be a product of situations is to be a product of context.
Perry on the other hand falters with the acts of violence and even tells Dick they should leave since there is no safe. The comparison of the killers’ appearance also comes into play while observing both the novel and the movie. Perry’s baby-face coupled with his short stature and sensitivity only adds to the audience wanting to dismiss him of his actions. Dick on the other hand is described as masculine. Other than appearance the men’s background can also be compared.
He refuses to accept horrific news because to do so would require him to admit the enormity of his crimes. In the end, when Oedipus acknowledges the truth, he blinds and exiles himself from the royal city to atone for his crimes. As well, Othello, Cassio, and Roderigo are all blind to Iago’s deviousness and need for revenge. None of the men can see what is right before them because to do so, would require each to admit a flaw within themselves. It is much easier, at the end of the play, for the characters to blame Iago for his deception rather than admit that their own weaknesses have left them susceptible to Iago’s manipulation.
War played a major role in the performance of Stewart during this period along with the public perception of his own war record added new dimensions to his troubled persona and addressed in unsettling numerous ways through his films. Though Rupert Cadell (James Stewart), Hitchcock could “consolidate the contradictions of Rope within a star persona that is at once sympathetic, troubled, disturbing and American in Hollywood at this time” (Lawrence 57). Rupert in the film serves as the “text’s original fascist and its ultimate American, the charmingly glib nihilist who asserts that “murder is a privilege for the few” and the righteous defender of the American way” (Lawrence 57). Rope is one of the transitional films that form part of the long postwar phase of Stewart’s career, where he spent five years trying desperately to re-establish his prewar popularity. This crucial period witnessed his shift from comedy to drama.
Both the film and the novel incorporate Holmes as the judgemental, observational, and intelligent detective, while Stapleton is the cunning, evil villain. the novel, there are more main characters, such as Laura Lyons, who plays an important role in the case. It states, "Mrs. Laura Lyons of Coombe Tracey had written to Sir Charles Baskerville and made an appointment with him at that very place and hour he met to his death.” In contrast, the film has less main characters. Therefore, both have a suspenseful mood, but the novel has a more suspicious mood while the film has a more dramatic mood. The director chooses to remove some characters to dramatically focus on less suspects of the case.
This is achieved through many different plot devices and themes. One common element in Hitchcock’s films was the placement of an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances. Such key examples of this would be ‘The 39 steps’ (1935) and ‘North by Northwest’ (1959) which both involve very ordinary men being drawn into a world of espionage and intrigue. This creates suspense by lowering the protagonist to a more vulnerable level. They don’t have the plot armour of a usual hero or heroine.
Eliot Ness and his team, and Capone and his associates were represented similarly, and differently in the movie vs. reality. Eliot Ness wasn’t the good cop everyone thought he was, the team in The Untouchables was all fictitious besides Ness, and Capone was just as cruel in the movie as he was in real life. The movie was a very entertaining one, packed with action that keeps you interested. Although it was a great movie, it left out many important details in the Capone investigation due to being able to make the movie more watchable for viewers and acting as a time constraint. Directors have many reasons why they change things in movies related to history, it’s always intriguing to analyze what changes are
