In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character, Jonas, can undoubtedly be considered a hero. Jonas’ actions throughout The Giver are a quality example of the archetypal pattern of the Hero’s journey, and to depict this I used a variety of text, illustration, and color throughout my graphic novel. Jonas undergoes all three stages of the hero’s journey throughout the novel. He experiences the first step in this journey, the call to adventure, when he is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. Jonas, like most archetypal heroes during this step, notes that he believes that his life will change due to this call to a mysterious adventure.

Its main purpose is to give our government a solid direction, and to describe the roles of the three branches in our government: The judicial, legislative, and executive branches. There are 3 ways the constitution has guarded us from tyranny: Equal Representation from all the States, Federalism, and the system of checks and balances. The first guard against tyranny was Equal Representation from all of the states. This means that each state will have certain amounts of senator’s. The bigger the state, the more senators.
Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
The authors of The Declaration of Independence successfully persuade the reader through the use of logos, ethos, and pathos. Of the three modes of persuasion, logos is definitely one of the most important. Logos plays off of the logic that something contains and how well the supporting informations relates to the thesis. The founding fathers used logos exceptionally well throughout their writing of The Declaration of Independence. One of the main ideas of logos asks if the thesis for the piece of writing is clear and specific.
In the excerpt Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau writes about his opinions on the relationships that are kept between the citizens and the government. In this excerpt, Henry David Thoreau demonstrates three tenets of transcendentalism, individualism is a paramount of importance, one's life is guided by one's intuition, and by listening to one's intuition, man can follow god's lead.The first tenet that Henry David Thoreau demonstrates is that individualism is a paramount of importance. In Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau writes about the capabilities of every citizen. He says "must the citizen for ever a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator. Why has every man a conscience, then?"
Introduction I have chosen to watch and discuss the film ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ (2006) directed and written by Guillermo del Toro. I have chosen this particular film as it reflects upon Franco’s Spain and the Civil War that took place alongside. ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ was the first film for which the Mexican director, Guillermo del Toro, was recognised internationally as a filmmaker. I see this as a revolutionary step as this fairy-tale like film intertwined both aspects of storytelling and past historical events in a likeable way which grew in popularity in the English-speaking world. The film’s success and popularity are further enhanced by its ability to win three Oscars in 2007 for Cinematography, Art Direction, and Makeup.
The Auteur Theory-Intro Part Considering the collaborative process of filmmaking, especially nowadays in most film production, the concept of there being a singular creative supervisor is debatable. Nonetheless one cannot deny the existence of directional motifs and instances of thematic and stylistic elements within the work of filmmakers like Tim Burton and Alfred Hitchcock. These directors indicate that within traditions and genres lies the overall definition of an auteur: a director whose inventive traits are listed throughout his/her work like a signature. Auteurism rose to the surface in the 1950s French New Wave criticism as an appraisal of Hollywood directors who were ready to avoid the rules of the studio system and create films that were distinctively their own. Before this markable period, film authors were generally self-directing with open stylistic aspirations and full management over their films.
Baz Luhrmann is widely acknowledged for his Red Curtain Trilogy which are films aimed at heightening an artificial nature and for engaging the audience. Through an examination of the films Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, the evolution and adaptation of his techniques become evident. Luhrmann’s belief in a ‘theatrical cinema’ can be observed to varying degrees through the three films and his choice to employ cinematic techniques such as self-reflexivity, pastiche and hyperbolic hyperbole. The cinematic technique of self-reflexivity allows a film to draw attention to itself as ‘not about naturalism’ and asks the audience to suspend their disbelief and believe in the fictional construct of the film. Self-reflexivity is employed in Romeo + Juliet by immediately drawing attention to the fact that the film is represented as a news report rather than the original format of a Shakespearean play.
In most traditional myths, the finalizing of a story comes when it is expressed in a play and myth of Zapata can be culminated into the film, which mixes the historical aspects along with myths in Viva Zapata! In all, the movie as a whole shows the power of Zapata’s myth since it was a movie produced by an American movie studio, written by John Steinbeck and would have an actor that would be considered one of the greatest of his generation, Marlon Brando. The way in which his life is portrayed is rather faithful to various sources that describe his life. The movie itself gives a faithful representation of Zapata’s life, but still presents elements of the myth of Zapata. One of interesting note is one that although has a source, it is questionable whether it actually occurred.
With every role, he can express himself through the part. He knows his status and can authorize it in ever movie he is placed in. The type of acting James is normally known to do is method acting. The definition if method acting is “the Method requires that actors draw on their own memories and experiences to reach the heart of a character, so that they more
• It offers up the argument that standing up and speaking out brings triumph--both universally and personally. The juxtaposition of this solution both from an objective view and a subjective view transcends a simple "message" into a concrete argument. • To summarize, the film the Shawshank redemption fit’s the structure of a classical narrative story, because it consists of having introduction, development, and resolution stages throughout it. Furthermore, we are presented with the central characters goals, which in this films case is the desire to be free. As the story progressed, the development stage of the story revealed the protagonists obstacles to us, which appeared as the Warden Norton and being institutionalization.
