Jaws (Spielberg, 1975) follows the police chief Brody (Rob Schneider), along with oceanographer Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw), in their attempt to protect the town of Amity against a Great White shark that is terrorising beachgoers. It was adapted from Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name. The production of Jaws went past schedule and over budget, and there were malfunctions with the prosthetic sharks that were intended to be used in the film. As a result of this, Spielberg decided to only suggest the appearance of the shark as often as possible, as opposed to showing the prosthetic body during all attacks. This sparing use of the prosthetics, and primary focus instead on creating suspense and dread
“A man can be destroyed but not defeated” (103). The old man makes the comparison between destruction and defeat, making the audience question if he is defeated or destroyed by his pain or pride. Santiago saw the marlin as a great loss, but the sharks took the fisherman’s glory when they stripped away the marlin for its flesh. The fisherman’s view of losing the marlin and the battle against the sharks creates the vision of the glass being half empty, in a rhetorical structure. “He is beautiful and noble and knows no fear of anything” (106).

The painting titled “Watson and a Shark,” is a thorough example of his venture into historical paintings. The painting depicts Brook Watson, an orphan who went on to hold a political position, being attacked by a shark. While it may appear that Watson is laying passively in the foreground waiting to be rescued, his positioning references the famous sculpture, Borghese Gladiator. This artistic allusion portrays Watson as a warrior and a survivor, not a victim. While Copley’s portraits elevated the subject’s economic status, this historical rendering elevated Watson’s moral status.

Randy Bragg, a young man in Fort Repose, must rise up to save his town from their crisis and help rebuild it. This novel tells the story of how the community of Fort Repose puts aside their normal social boundaries and prejudice to come together to achieve a common goal: survival. Pat Frank uses difficult settings, challenging conflicts, and indirect characterization to convey his theme that during a catastrophe, a community must work together to survive. First of all, the formidable settings help convey the theme by showing that the characters are working together. For example, during the August heat, the fish stop biting because they swim to the bottom of the river bed to keep cool.

At the end of the film, Truman walks up the steps and leaves the show in order to experience the real world. According to Plato’s theory of forms, ideas go beyond the physical world and once they are thought of, they can’t be undone.
Hook also succeeds in capturing the Darling brothers and the Lost Boys, but when Peter and Hook fight their final battle, Hook loses and is eaten by a crocodile. Seeing peter slowly advancing upon him [Hook] through the air with dagger poised, he sprang upon the bulwarks o cast himself into the sea. He did not know that the crocodile was waiting for him; for we purposely stopped the clock that this knowledge might be spared him: a little mark of respect from us at the end.

"Now they have beaten me, he thought. I am too old to club sharks to death. But I will try it as long as I have the oars and the short club and the tiller" (Hemingway 112). Determined to continue fighting despite of defeat shows a true hero.
One of the biggest ways this issue strikes you on an emotional level is when tragedy strikes when orcas are kept in captivity. The documentary "Blackfish" highlights just one of these tragedies, when a trainer was killed at Sea World in 2010. So the question comes to all of us why if we know that captivity and this environment is negatively affecting the orcas, do we continue to support this practice by going to the shows and marine parks? The legislation that California has passed brings the ethical issues of keeping these beautiful animals in captivity into the discussion now as well. Even though Sea World has stopped all their breeding programs, and will not be acquiring any new orcas, the question is what will become of the orcas that are currently living at these marine parks.
