In an argumentative essay, the writer is stating his opinion and supporting the opinion with evidence. The writer will also use a bridge or warrant to connect the evidence to the point he is trying to convey. A good warrant will help the reader see how the writer formed the argument and why he believes the way he does. In this essay, the author will argue that the movie/book, 2001: A Space Odyssey, uses technology to develop the plot more that the movie The Matrix.

The films dystopic setting aids in the creation of ideals that Blade Runner and Terminator 2 exemplify. Blade Runner utilizes this bleak industrialized Los Angles where people are devoid of significant relationships with one another, whereas Terminator 2 shows a unification both in 1995 and 2029. An important aspect as to why the films are so different is that they represent two sides to the android/cyborg sub-genre of Science Fiction. Blade Runner represents the demoralization of the human race and the idealization of “The Other” where Terminator 2
Chapter one, entitled "The College Essay Is an Argument", in "The Humble Argument" by Roy K. Humble states: that a proper college essay should be a cohesive, easy to understand dialog of contrasting views, that begins with a simple yet important question, and collection of evidence; then ends with a well thought out answer based on said evidence concluding with the student writer's personal thoughts and feeling about the question, the evidence, and the answer. Roy K. Humble concludes that if a student writer takes these necessary steps as part of their writing process they will most assuredly have written a complete argument, a true College
Between two worlds, one virtual and one unfathomable reality, humans must fight with technology.

In both, Oedipus by Sophocles, and The Matrix by Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski, and Joel Silver, there is an oracle that helps the main character go through their journey by either giving them wisdom or advice or telling the main character what is yet to come. Both Oracles tell the main character very important information that is hard to believe, but they give the information in different styles or ways demonstrating that the truth comes from the things that people try to deny most of the time. The Oracle in Oedipus gives Oedipus information that is very hard to believe but also tells Oedipus the information in a straightforward way. The Oracle of Delphi says that Oedipus would marry his mother, and kill his father. “I heard all that and ran.
Alienation is an experience of being isolated from a group or a society. It is something that affects people everyday at school, work or any social events. The theme of alienation is showed in The Lego Movie when the character tries very hard to meet society’s standards. In the novel Fahrenheit 451 alienation is showed when no one listens or pays attention to the protagonist. The Lego Movie and Fahrenheit 451 does a good job demonstrating the theme of alienation with the usage of character emotions, feelings and society’s standards and labels throughout the movie and the novel.
What does forgetting everything, being trapped in a city with no way out, and forced to follow old rules all have in common? They are the storylines of the dystopian novels, The Forgetting, by Sharon Cameron and The Maze Runner, by James Dashner. For teens, dystopia is one of the most favored types of story. It appeals to them because they feel like it is one of the best ways to represent their life, whether it is school or family. This is interesting since some characteristics of dystopia include constant surveillance, uniforms, fear of the outside world, and independent ideas and freedom restrictions.
Over the course of English 1302 at Texas Tech, I feel that my skills as a writer improved significantly. When beginning the class, I knew little about writing a literature review or researched argument. With the help of my instructor’s lectures and the University Writing Center, I was able to effectively get my point across effectively while forming a well developed and well spoken manner. The advice given to me about argumentative essays and integrating sources helped significantly over the course of this class, and the skills learned in English 1302 helped me in other classes this semester when writing as well. One of the things I have learned that influenced me the most was my professor’s advice about an argument.

“An unexamined life is a life not worth living” - Socrates. Both ‘The Matrix’ and Plato’s allegory of ‘The Cave’ develops a question of reality and how the world is perceived. This can be closely connected to one of the great Greek philosopher’s sayings where an “unexamined life is a life not worth living”.
