To an outside observer like a journalist or legislator, why the girl enjoyed the film so much is obvious: the girl is a budding sociopath as a result of watching the scarring film, and will soon go on a murderous rampage of her own at school. However, the author then specifies the girl's real intention: an adolescent crush on one of the actors. With very rare exception - and such exceptions are in need of mental health counselling - children are curious and seek information and media innocently. Nonetheless, institutions like the movie rating system are still in place, and are often a parent's first resource when
The reality TV show “Bad Girls Club” is in fact a disguised psychological experiment because it unambiguously casts women who undeniably have psychological problems with the intention to watch how they violently interact with each other and because the show alters situations for a specified outcome. The participants of this experiment are psychologically unstable women who are labeled as “bad girls”. These neurotic women are placed in a house with other unstable women with the intentions of enduring constant conflict, arguments, and alliances. “Bad Girls Club” is systematized in a way in which features within the reality show are altered so that specific events are destined to occur for the hidden psychological experiments purpose.

Introduction The film Carrie (Brian De Palma, 1976) follows the protagonist Carrie White, Sissy Spacek, who is a shy high school student residing in a small town. After receiving her first period, she acquires telekinetic powers, which turns her world around; especially since she did not understand what the change meant for her as a new woman. Although Carrie is a horror film, the underlying meaning points to feminism as it embarks on the discovery of power, and threatening the patriarchal order. Carrie is a feminist film where fear comes not in blood or telekinesis, but the fears of a strong woman. The film uses cinematic techniques to further push this implicit meaning by ways of cinematography, mise-en-scene, and editing.

Witchcraft Theory Back in Puritan life, many women were accused of practicing witchcraft. Many people feel the Salem Witch Trials were a fraud, but they cannot decide if this fraud was due to ergot poisoning, certain townspeople influencing the teenagers to accuse people in order to gain land or economic prosperity, or boredom of the teenage girls. Although there are many theories on why girls of Salem accused others of witchcraft, I believe the Salem Witch Trials occurred because the teenage girls of Salem were bored due to the strict religious environment. The Salem Witch Trials began during the spring of 1692 in Salem Village, Massachusetts (History.com Staff). During this time, young girls claimed to be possessed by the devil and
The relationship between Katherina and Bianca Stratford in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You can be very similar yet uncommonly different.

Bad Moms is written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who also wrote the hilarious Hangover and The Change-Up. The title of the movie may lead a viewer to look for the same plot as “Bad” Santa or “Bad” Teacher, which were both about truly terrible people; however, Bad Moms flips that approach somewhat by concentrating on three good-hearted women who choose to stop worrying about being so in control and caring what all the other moms think. Mila Kunis plays Amy, a stereotypically tense working mom of two who juggles a demanding job, her kids’ extracurricular activities and her adolescent husband who doesn’t help around the house or with the kids. In addition, it is identified at the beginning of the movie that her immature husband has
One 's actions and experiences shape their identity, and in turn, one 's identity shapes their actions. The play the Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare, was first performed in the early 1600’s as a comedy of a young girl by the name of Viola pretending to be a male and changing her identity in order to get closer to the man she had fallen in love for.

In 1692, several young girls in Salem, Massachusetts took this search too far. Due to the lack of scientific knowledge at the time and the fact that historically Europe experienced many witch hunts, it is understandable how the townspeople of Salem would jump to conclusions about what was really going on.

The girls who were thought to be “possessed” in Salem were preadolescent children who were plagued
