The poem “Fade” bring to the light the pain of Jackson after Stuart’s death. Unconsciously Jackson can’t let go his friend. He stared to have dreams about Stuart. He really miss Stuart. As Jackson describe Stuart in his dreams, he says, “Wanted to say good-bye” (11s. 75-76). Implying that Stuart wants to say good bye to him but, what he really is saying is that he would like to have a chance to say farewell to his friend. He never had a change to do it. Trust and love define friendship. The book of poems ‘Missing you, Metropolis’ by Gary Jackson expose truths about life with poems in a united way. Whereas he used superheroes from comic books to get his point across. Showing the reader uncomfortable realities
“Where the Red Fern grows,” is a book and a movie. The movie and the book has the same scenes but the movie is missing some details. The book has more narration than the movie. The book in my opinion feels like I am there. It draws me in more than the movie does.
A. I learned a lot of things while i watched the documentary on the MS-13s. They do a lot of things that i never knew people could do. There are so many members in this gang and everyone wants to be higher and higher up each day. A good term from our sociology book that i connected to the documentary was Competition. Competition in biology and sociology, is a contest between two or more organisms, animals, individuals, groups, etc., for territory, a niche, for a location of resources, for resources and goods, for mates, for prestige, for recognition, for awards, for group or social status, or for leadership. This is a big deal to people in the gang of ms-13. If you do not do what the higher gang members in the system do you can and will be
Forrest Gump, directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, and Gary Sinise, released on July 6, 1994, is a sensational story about the life of an individual that goes by the name Forrest Gump. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109830/) Forrest Gump begins his story on a bench in the city of Savannah, Georgia. Gump, as told later in the movie, is waiting for a bus to take him to Jenny, a long lost, close, friend of his.

It is in this town where he first meets Jenny on his first day
I agree with Michael Uslan where he argues that superhero characters are a modern mythology. Although science can help explain the background of the superheroes powers, superheroes are usually regarded as a Saviour rather than a science experiment. Since superheroes are much more unrealistic, it tends towards being a mythology instead.
Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy constitutes a rather contemporary manifestation of an extensive body of artifacts in media culture. Media culture, Henry Giroux holds, “has become a substantial, if not the primary educational force in regulating the meanings, values, and tastes that set the norms, that offer up and legitimate particular subject positions – what it means to claim an identity as male, female, white, black, citizen, noncitizen” (2-3). Being the most popular remediation of the Batman over the past two decades, the Dark Knight Trilogy reveals contemporary attitudes of mainstream Hollywood film to issues revolving around sexuality and gender as two of the core facets of identity. In particular, the representation of masculinity,
The three movies – Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, and The Green Berets – are all movies based on the same historical event – the Vietnam war and US’s involvement in it. Yet, they all presented us with different and narrative point of view and authority figures in order to paint their individual values.
“I believe whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you stranger” (The Dark Knight, 2008), this is the stand out sentence that the main antagonist, The Joker (Heath Ledger) speaks in the opening scene of the movie. Not only does this line set up the suspense for the rest of the movie but it also sets up the suspense for the opening scene of the movie. ‘The Dark Knight’ is a film directed by Christopher Nolan that builds suspense and intrigue throughout the movie, the director uses mise-en-scene, mise-en-shot and editing to put a seed of meaning for the viewer to draw from.

Bob Kane’s fictional vigilante, Batman, is Gotham City’s greatest hero, capable of overcoming difficult challenges and defeating intimidating opponents. However, does the resilient hero have what it takes to face the struggle of love? In “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Night”, Travis Langley, the author, delves into the mind of Batman to offer readers his professional opinion regarding Batman’s mental health after experiencing the most unfortunate event of his life, the death of his parents. Dr. Langley carefully analyzed every appearance Batman has made, whether it be comic or film, and studied Batman’s behavior to decode his hidden mental processes. He covers a wide range of mental illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, obsession, etc. However, the most intriguing topic concerning Batman’s mental stability was the evaluation of Batman’s love life. Batman has fallen in love but he lives a life of mystery and interacts with a false identity. To keep Gotham citizens unaware that Batman is Bruce Wayne, Bruce wears a bat-suit which is a dark outfit that includes a night bat-like mask while fighting crime. To further conceal his identity from the world, Bruce gave his real name an alter-ego that has the personality of a wealthy playboy while he acts out his true identity as Batman. Thus, Batman is unable to maintain a romantic relationship with anyone due to intimacy and his alter-ego, regardless if Batman wants a love life or not.
In the movie “Batman: the dark knight” (2008), we are introduced to the character Harvey Dent. He is the District Attorney of Gotham City. Everyone loves him, he is charming and good looking and most important is that he fights for justice. Even though he is a good man, he uses his father’s lucky coin to gain benefits for himself; he suggests playing coin toss over many different things, mainly involving Rachel (the woman Harvey wants to marry). He always picks head because there is a picture of a woman on both sides of the coin. The joker kidnaps Harvey and Rachel, giving batman the choice of whom he wants to save. Batman saves Harvey just before the explosion, but half of Harvey’s face melted. At the hospital, the loss of Rachel becomes too much for Harvey, and after a small talk with the joker, he turns into the insane villain Two-Face. He now hunts the people who he feels is to blame for Rachel’s death, using his coin (that is now black on the one side) to decide whether people are going to die

For my compare and contrast paragraph I chose Batman vs Superman. Batman and Superman are alike in a lot of ways but there some differences. There are both alike because they are both super heroes, both from DC, and both are good at what they do. Batman in different from Superman is that Batman can’t fly and Superman can fly because his powers. Another thing is that Batman fights in Gotham the most crime ridden city. Batman also wears black because so no can see him plus he wants to dress like bat. Superman different from Batman because Superman can shoot lasers from his eyes and breaths out ice. Superman also wears blue and red and fights in Metropolis city.
The Dark Knight is a widely praised film from executive Christopher Nolan. It depends on a more practical variant of the Batman mythos. In this specific adjustment, Batman has gotten himself set against a cruel, psychotic killer named The Joker who simply needs to wreak devastation on Gotham City. Abnormality has gotten to be a standout amongst the most key parts in different movies, for example, The Dark Knight. I believe that The Dark Knight incorporates several of characters that would be determined to have some sort of psychological disorder. Be that as it may, I will look at Batman to decide the kind of psychological
12 Angry Men, although produced in the late fifties still offers a great slate for any viewer. The special effects and quality can easily be guessed by the black and white silhouettes of the film. The intensifying conflict of this film easily overshadows the lacking up to date criteria expected from a film. Many viewers expect a well-developed plot and characters with an accompanying use of special effects and coherent scenes. This courthouse drama has assigned twelve men to juror duty which will make this murder case mystifying by involving the viewers in the underlying theme of prejudice in the film. Although, the film lacks in special effects and up to date quality, the extensive details included in the dialogue make it come to life. The
