Often the people that stand out from the crowd at younger ages are the people that will do incredible and amazing things. When Burton was young he was an outsider giving him time to become great at what he loves, he spent his time drawing and writing some of his childhood work that inspired films that he is recognized. Burton uses long shot, flashbacks, and low key lighting in both Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands to show the characters insecurities about the obstacle of society.
In the beginning of the movie they presented us with the heroic victims of the Alamo lying dead. This scene sparked off a depressing atmosphere. During the movie, there was a mix of emotions; growing tension and an overwhelming feeling of victory merged into one. The movie was very compelling and was utmost intriguing.
Stereotypes in media have been around since the earliest cartoons were drawn. The media gives supposedly identifying traits with images of the stingy Jewish man, the single Hispanic woman cleaning homes to raise her three children, and the “butch” lesbian falling for the beautiful blonde who just happens to glance at her every day in the hallway. These portrayals make up general knowledge about minorities for a lot of people, but their accuracy is questionable at best. While production companies have been making strides towards the better, insufficient representation in the media tends to portray minorities as their negative stereotypes rather than as people.
Humans tend are entertained by the most iniquitous things. Stephen King makes many significant points, one point being “the horror film has become the modern version of the public lynching” (paragraph 6). This is agreeable because all humans have some type of psychological problem, an evil and a good side, emotions that need satisfaction, and the similarities between horror films and public lynching. People may not recognize these things, but it does exist in everyday life. Stephen King’s article helps point these things out to readers.
In the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a group of men living in a psychiatric ward are dealing with different types of disorders.

I have diagnosed Billy with Dependent Personality Disorder. In the DSM-V, Dependent Personality Disorder is described
All Quiet on the Western Front tells the story of Paul Baumer, a German young man who is drafted into the army with some of his high school friends.

The movie shows the tragedy of war through the emotional connection characters have, and focuses on the experiences had by the newly enlisted group of friends.
Napoleon Dynamite is dumb and is a waste of time movie, that stereotypes high school nerds.

The American disaster comedy film, This Is the End is a valid portrayal of an environmental disaster. The plot of the movie surrounds a group of friends trying to cope with several natural disasters at once, before realizing an apocalypse of biblical proportions has erupted. I will be discussing how disaster themes, such as emergency mitigation, management, interaction and recovery, were portrayed in this film.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde comprise of notoriety, great versus shrewdness and harm control. At the end of the day, Utterson resolutely attempts to keep his closest companion Dr. Jekyll from being dragged into the repulsive issues of Mr. Hyde, and Dr. Jekyll experiences the best of lengths to keep his Hyde personality from being found, so as to maintain a strategic distance from anybody knowing about his to some degree flawed logical work and ethically wretched conduct. A great part of the novel depends on the characters ' notorieties, how they need to keep up a decent open picture, as they are high society individuals.
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 political satire commentary on the Cold War. The film is built around the actions of the delusion Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper, who is convinced of an “international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.” Ripper’s highly unlikely theory leads him to command his B-52’s to drop hydrogen bombs on the U.S.S.R. by initiating Wing Attack Plan R, designed to be issued by a military official if a sneak attack were to wipe out Washington officials. It is only after Ripper puts his military base on lockdown that other government officials realize what’s going on, but by then it’s too late. Upon discovering that there are thermonuclear weapons en route to the Soviet Union,
In Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s The Stanford Prison Experiment, 20 college aged boys are selected to play different roles in a simulated prison located within Stanford.This experiment was thought of and carried out by Philip Zimbardo, a professor of psychology. The boys, who were also students at Stanford, were randomly selected to be a guard or a prisoner. The prisoners were taken by real police officers to the Stanford jail. When the experiment started, most of the prisoners thought of the situation as it was intended to be, an experiment. However, the guards were much more serious. Prisoner 8612 received a large amount of attention from the guards, and could arguably have been the most abused prisoner. At one point, 8612 and another prisoner attempt to break out of the prison, but it failed. After having many
Delusional: When a person is disconnected from reality. It can be caused by many conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or even sometimes mental disorders aren’t always necessarily preexisting and can even be caused by certain medicines being mixed with each other. Whatever the case mental disorders should be recognised and treated instead of stigmatized (as in a lot of cases). Most mental disorders when treated are manageable, but when left untreated can manifest in other ways.In both stories the untreated mental problems manifested in hallucinations(poes case) and violence(Hyde’s). In Poe 's case his delusions were caused by emotional trauma (wife 's death) that manifested into him seeing a raven. In Dr.Jekyll’s case it was a preexisting condition,that is known as multiple personality disorder,(this disorders existence is very debated)
