Superheroes have remained some of the most popular figures throughout American culture in the 20th and 21st centuries. It seems we cannot go a year without a new Batman, X-Men, Superman, Iron man or Captain America movie coming out. But what is it about superheroes that hold America’s attention? Jeffrey Lang and Patrick Trimble argue in their article “What Happened to the Man of Tomorrow” that the reason superheroes have remained relevant is because of their connection to the American monomyth. Lang states that there is an overall monomyth, but also a distinctly American one that focuses on “a selfless hero emerging to renounce temptations and carry out the redemptive task” and that “his decisive victory restores the community” (Lang 158).
However even with people arguing for even more diversity the film industry is unmistakably making incredible progress and is continuing to create more diversity, undoubtedly heading in the right direction. It is indisputable the struggle that producers and directors have gone through trying to make movies that leave everyone happy in the end. There is almost always someone who is not happy with something. Even with everything that Hollywood has done to represent all races, cultures, beliefs, and genders some people think more efforts need to be made to have an even amount of representation for everyone. Hollywood has made noticeable changes to make things equal for everyone and should be awarded instead of condemned for their efforts in creating more diversity both in front and behind the
The author’s review on the new movie was generally a decent one. The author had more good things to say than bad and they generally thought the movie was a good one. In addition, the review talked about the general storyline of the movie, the general theme, and the things, they thought, were not the best. The author talks about how it is a acceptable interpretation of the original movie because the basic plot is the same. Maurice, Belle’s father, becomes imprisoned by the beast.
The Most Marvelous Heroes; The Avengers So many hero movies have been released in the world so far, but from my point of view The Avengers is quite different from any other movies and very special. What do you think when you hear the number 623,357,910? To tell the truth, this number is an amount of a box-office gross, which one famous movie, The Avengers came out in 2012, made so far. Compared to other popular movies, The Avengers has recorded a dramatically larger box-office. This was the long-hoped-for movie for fans of Marvel comics.
In the film adaptation of the novel, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, some of the original aspects that make the novel so timeless are not included in the movie. However, due to the vastly different medium that film is and the abstractness of the novel, it makes sense why some things would have to change in order for the story to transfer to the screen successfully. While many die-hard fans of the novel denounce the film version of their beloved story, others celebrate the presence of Adams’ wit in the movie especially through the cartoon representations of the guide entries. First of all, the Hitchhiker’s Guide is pictured much differently in the movie than in the novel. The creators of the movie portray the guide as an
He was convinced that Tom was in fact innocent, something that would be hard to admit during the time period. This is proof that Atticus’ heroics were really starting to make a difference. Of course, changes like decreased racial prejudice do not happen overnight, but that one person, or family, the Cunninghams, that changed their minds are the first step to bigger changes that would soon
Author Alex Leptos interviewed many different people at big film companies about the issue of too many white people in Hollywood movies, and he says that, “Another thing is the issue of modern Hollywood fearing that casting a lesser-known, non-white actor may attract less viewers and therefore bring less profit.”(Leptos) This quote means that if you put lesser known actors in a movie it may now get as much viewership. So they sometimes cast them because known white people are gonna to get more viewership than a not-known colored person. This means that the film company will get more money if they cast a well known actor. For example, in the film, Ghost in the Shell, Scarlett Johansson got the part instead of a Japanese actor. The situation made lots of headlines, leading to more publicity for the movie, and they have Scarlett Johansson, who is a very well respected actor, which people may go see the movie just because she is in it.
Be it a movie, book, or game it is not an easy task. Especially when you 've created Batman Arkham Asylum, hands down best version of Batman we have ever seen hit gaming platforms. So how did they do it you ask? Well that is not a simple answer, as this sequel has taken Batman to a whole new level. Yes this game seriously beats its predecessor, with a whole open world to unleash the dark knight 's fury on.
Some of these cases could be whether or not Ulrick ever actually existed, if Hanna was a real person, or the amount of children the pope had. These details are most likely added, or left out for dramatic purposes or because it is irrelevant to Luther’s story. The people who watch it for entertainment aren’t really interested in how true to life it actually is, so historical accuracy isn’t that big of a deal for most. The movie Luther had a cast consisting of serious, well known and award-winning actors and they released it to theatres. This tells us that they wanted it to be shown to the general audience, and not only in church halls.
Other changes had no effect on the story because they were just items added in for dramatic effect, like Gatsby’s aggression towards Tom after Tom told him they were not equal. I feel like if I would have watched the movie first and then read the book the changes would seem much more
