(cite) Smith starts the poem with a communal invitation to make a new movie. He uses juxtapositions to show the mood of the film is when “Jurassic Park meets Friday meets The Pursuit of Happyness,” meaning a suspenseful creature movie with the influence of “hood boys.” The last three lines of the first stanza paint an image of an African American boy playing with a toy dinosaur and gazes out his window to see a T.Rex because “there has to be a T.Rex.” Due to typecast dinosaur movies it has to be a T.Rex, but leaves the question open to if this movie is about an African American boy what stereotypes about him have to be in the movie? Bluntly, Smith states in stanza two “don’t let Tarantino direct this” due to his overuse of racial slurs and violence, then goes on to explain the metaphor of “the boy with the gun.” In another poem by Danez Smith he shares
When we think of heroes we often think of a masked vigilanty or a cape crusader swooping down from the heavens and saving the day. Although heroes come in many shapes and sizes, they also tend to come from different backgrounds. The people of the United States pride themselves with freedom and equality. However, still to this day there is a struggle with discrimination. Matt Zoller Seitz’s article “The Offensive Movie Cliché That Won’t Die” definitely sparked some interest and was definitely right when it came to the offensive issue most people do not see.
Don’t get me wrong I completely understand that when Director Ernie Rettino set out to make a Christian children’s television series and song albums he had the best of intentions at heart. However there is a fine line when it comes to children television between friendly characters and creepy guy in a suit talking to small children. Kids Praise 4 is not only extremely outdated (filmed in 1992) but you can clearly see the budget on the screen in every shot or the lack there of. Our main character Psalty the talking Psalm book, looks like a combination of Rob Ross and Ronald McDonald, wearing and anthropomorphic book suit that I assume was extremely uncomfortable for Rettino to wear. The child actors are worse than a 1980s Saturday morning toy
Title Researchers and scientists have constructed extensive research on dinosaur’s extinction. Speculation instead of real evidence seems common in most theories about the dinosaurs’ extinction. However, Jay Gould’s essay “Sex, Drugs, and the Extinction of Dinosaurs” is the complete opposite of speculation over evidence. Rather, Gould uses the mix of persuasive techniques, such as rhetorical questions, logos, along with profound evidence to not only disapprove of other theories but convince readers of his place on the dinosaur’s extinction. As one is able to attest, logos are evident within every passage of this essay.
They tried to do the same thing again by making something they can’t control. The monstrosity is the same in both of them. Both the animals and the humans are equally monstrous. The theme Folly of Greed is shown a lot throughout the movie. First, when they make the new dinosaur they did not stop and think whether or not they could handle the dinosaur.
Johnny told Ponyboy, in a letter, on page 178 that he should continue to watch sunsets because it was gold. The only other character mentioned in The Outsiders who admires watching sunsets is Cherry Valance, therefore he really stands out. Ponyboy’s explanation of what most Greasers do is, “Greasers are almost like hoods; we steal things and drive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations and have a gang fight once in awhile.” Despite his explanation, he doesn’t act like this at all. Ponyboy is unique because he wants to do something good in the world. In fact, he did- he wrote about something that was important to him.
The Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury is a futuristic science fiction short story about a hunter named Eckles, he visits the Time Safari, a company that sends you to the past. Eckles travels back in time with a group of three to shoot and kill a prehistoric dinosaur. Nethergrave is about a young boy named Jeremy, who plays sports, and has a group of internet friends. Later, Jeremy is faced with a decision whether to stay in the real world, or leave it for the virtual introduced by a great being. This critical response will be comparing, and contrasting both stories by making points such as, how the stories fit into the science fiction genre, the characterization between Eckles and Jeremy, the theme/message of the stories, dialogue, and writing style.
Billy is the most passive character in the history of literature. Ordinarily, time travel is one of the most exciting superhuman abilities, but in Billy’s case it lets him see the future and let it happen. For example, in the book Billy gets abducted by aliens on his own free will; “ Billy saw the war movie… then it was time to go out into his backyard to meet the flying saucer… He would not raise his eyes to the sky, though he knew there was a flying saucer from Tralfamadore up there. He would see it soon enough, inside and out, and he would see, too, where it came from soon enough-soon enough.” (Vonnegut 87) This is not the only time Billy runs into an avoidable situation. Another time in the book Billy lets himself get assassinated; “ ‘No,
In “Violent Media is Good for Kids”, Gerard Jones argues that violent media gives good impact for psychology development of the children. This good impact has been implemented to himself and make him a writer as well as his son who transformed bloodthirsty dinosaur into a stimulation to enter preschool; a Power Ranger into self endowment by joining social competition in Kindergarten. He likewise has helped a little girl named Emily who really likes exploding violent action, to have more self-controlled and socially competent by letting her wrote stories and drew comic to express her emotion. From his experiences, he believes that violent entertainment in which people might think it is the trashiest pop culture has its own developmental function.
