31 p.g 213.) The author uses personification to describe the force and harshness in their actions, by doing this Cormier is successfully incorporating both visual and kinesthetic imagery into the quote as the reader is now exposed to both an image and a feeling of the painful sensation being experienced by Jerry. The use of Hyperbole in the line “They wanted to blind him, they wanted to kill him.” exaggerates the purpose of their doings. The students did not want Jerry dead they wanted him aware of the consequences he will be faced with if he continues denying selling chocolates. Cormier's
The low-key lighting is coherent since they are in a club, but more importantly it emphasizes the confrontational, dramatic mood of the scene. The shadows obscure Dom’s expressions, giving him a more menacing look. This, coupled with an over-the-shoulder shot that simultaneously shows Dom towering over the bouncer and the bouncer’s intimidated expressions, display the power dynamics at play. Later on, when Dom punches the guard, the focus of attention shifts from the confrontation to Malcolm’s reaction. The off-screen sound of a ruckus is the only thing the audience can perceive of the fight.
When he first fell off of his yacht and into the water, he wanted to thrash about like an animal and swim crazily back to shore for help, but instead he started swimming “with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more…” (218). So in that moment, Rainsford was able to reason with himself and control his urge to thrash about the water.

In the movie right before Percy was about to return the lightning bolt, Luke comes in and fights him. In the book, after Percy finishes his quest and goes back to camp half-blood he finds out about Luke's betrayal, and almost dies after Luke's scorpion bites him. This difference was very important because, in the movie the fight scene took up a lot of time so they hard to run to turn the bolt in on time. I like the books idea more, because it is more detailed and the scene in the movie seemed jammed in. The book and the movie are both really interesting but one is better than the other.
He kills because he wants to and is able to, not because he has to. Jack wants to wear face paint, as they did in the war, which connects to his destructive behavior. He begins to “dance and his laughter became a bloodthirsty snarling” (Golding 64). The newly-made mask Jack wears begins to compel the other children
This shows that fear compels us to agree to things we wouldn't normally agree to. That last example of fear compelling us to agree to something we normally wouldn’t agree to is back to the show Supergirl. In this part of the story, the aliens have mind controlled everyone in the city except Supergirl, Max Lord, the smartest man in the city, and Cat Grant, the most powerful person in the city.

Man vs man conflict is happening among Lennie and Curley.George is yelling at Lennie to “get him” being, Lennie would never try to hurt someone on purpose without an order, and when he does he squeezes Curley’s
When Nagina was harassing Teddy and about to strike Rikki yelled at Nagina, she got distracted and went after Rikki. When a an animal usually sees an animal they strike without thinking and fighting till death, but Rikki thinks before he attacks, when he planned to attack Nag he said, “Where should I attack the neck of the head.
