There are stereotypical and exaggerated costumes that help to emphasise the composer's satirical perceptions of the context of 1995. Amy Heckerling uses visual irony, where an image is presented but a different and separate comment is made in comparison to the image. This irony is established when untypical and totally abnormal shots are being displayed of expensive belongings and attractive teenagers during the film's introduction. The voice-over contradicts what is being shown, "My life is way normal." This film technique displays the way the director has opposed what is being said and mocks the social context and displays the satire within Clueless.
Tim Burton shows so many moods and tones in his movies through his cinematic emulation. Some of his movies, such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” Burton shows the effect of a more realistic movie where Charlie wanted to sell the ticket for money and not experience a once in a lifetime experience. However, in “Edward Scissorhands”, he conveys a gothic style and tone through the outsider figure. Tim uses the techniques of lighting, sound, and editing to convey the effects of a more gothic and ominous style. First of all, sound is an important concept in any movie.
For example, in “Edward Scissorhands”, the town people only like Edward because he not like them. Edward is not ordinary nor normal, he is different. In a scene where Edward is “attacking” kevin’s face while, the town people crowd him. The music is dramatic and the diegetic sound is the scissorhands slashing and people yelling at Edward which startles Edward and makes it worse. Now, Edward seems like the bad guy but in reality Edward is nowhere near being a bad guy.
In today's society men, women and children experience prejudice in their lives, either as victims themselves or being guilty of using prejudice towards others due to differences between them. Prejudice is a preconception of a person based on stereotypes without real facts and discrimination based on gender, age and skin colour.

She also demonstrates the evils of prejudice and the negative consequences that lie in the city of Maycomb. By taking the reader, step by step, through various real life situations, and analyzing the impact of prejudice on people's lives, she manages to go to the root of the problem in attempting to eliminate prejudice.
First impressions are immediately based off of outer appearance, which causes some people to have false thoughts about who others truly are. Tim Burton is someone who embraces people who look different. In Films such as Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland, he has exaggerated characters who challenge the norm of society. Burton’s characters are judged by their outer appearances and have labels put on them. Tim Burton uses drastic makeup, contrast, and lighting to prove that things are not always as they seem.
Next to being, “The Lottery” a story most readers cannot connect with though find the purpose engaging. Finally, “The Skating Party” which portrays romance and betrayal. The short stories “The Possibility of Evil,” “The Lottery” and “The Skating Party” all culminate in an ironic ending that is, upon a more critical reading, foreshadowed throughout the story. The situational and Dramatic irony was evident throughout, by the foreshadowing of Miss. Adela Strangeworth's roses and the dropped letter addressed to Don Crane.
Or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?” There is often dramatic irony in the storyline, therefore the audience’s view is meant to be quite different from that of the character. Upon analyzing the musical it seems as though this question of good or evil makes the work seem like political satire. We look at the things that they want us to look at, and we don’t see the things that they want us to ignore (Sewey). Another theme that is covered throughout the musical is discrimination. Although, it may seem as though Elphaba with her green skin would be the main person who is discriminated, this is not the case.
Bob and Hilly are similar because they both make substantial efforts to get other people in trouble or humiliate them. However, they are different because Hilly uses her social class to influence other people, but Bob can not do that because he is thought of very badly in his community. In the end, social class is a big part of both To Kill a Mockingbird and The Help. It may not be all that fair, but social class really does affect the way people see you and how people treat you, which is a real
In the novel Jasper Jones the protagonist Charlie is faced with racial aggravation towards his friend Jeffery and his family. As the story progresses, even though they seem small at the time, these racial stereotypes have cruel and unfounded aggravation.
