According to Gould, the 1960s television show Batman was an unexpected cultural revolution because for children watching television in the 60s, the Batman TV series was a joyfully relaxing exercise for them. Also, this became a comedy classic and it was a cultural phenomenon in the 1960s. The Batman TV series was famous because this series has humor and a colorful cast of villains. As well, Batman have some aspect of popular culture, that he represents the reflection of society making him a superhero. In addition, Batman in the society wants to do justice on a bad attitude committed. He saw justice like fight a war on crime, and the goal was that the city does not belong to do criminal things and corruption. In fact, Batman has the ability
He wants people to believe in Den Harvey, which is the myth of white light, a good guy who was never against the law and does great to protect people instead of letting people know he surrendered into Joker’s theory. Den did not believe in fairness but in arbitrariness, after his lovely lady died. Den took a few people who caught his fiancé and tried to kill his top boss and his family member, because they choose to save him instead to save his fiancé. The batman Bruce believed that the Joker is doing something wrong to destroy the city and he can’t kill him because if he kills the Joker, he will become like the Joker, an evil person. Batman believed that he is the only one that could take the blame, and doesn’t seem like a random victim although he didn’t do anything wrong. He decided to take the blame for Den, became a scapegoat. People expressed their dissatisfaction and madness towards him rather than having people causing self-destruction, hate on the police, hate towards Den Harvey, and chaos. Batman believed that the city needs to be non-violent and white light. Based on these information I believed that the movie demonstrated Girard’s theory of
What is ethics? How do we as people choose our decisions on problems whether they are as small as chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookie, or as big as legalizing abortion? And once the decision is made, how do we justify it?
“A hero can be anyone.” (The Dark Knight Rises) Just like the Batman says in the movie a hero can be anyone, but it’s the world we live in that makes the hero. In 1929 the great stock market crash caused fear in millions of Americans, and it also caused over nine thousand banks to fail. There is much debate as to whether or not the stock market crash was the sole cause of the Great Depression, but there is agreement on the fact that it sparked the depression. After this great stock market crash people in the United States of America felt the aftermath for years to come. The Great Depression lasted for almost ten years, it was one of the worst decades that the United States has ever faced as a country. There are little remnants of hope from
With all the recents super hero movie success in Hollywood, many have come to wonder why Superman movies have just never worked. They should right, Superman is the epitome of a superhero, he was the first, the most powerful, and the most righteous. But maybe being the most righteous superhero isn’t exactly a good thing. When people ask why a Superman movie doesn’t work, it’s not because he isn’t a good enough hero, the problem is exactly the opposite: Superman is the best hero, and he always wins, which is a problem. The days of good vs. bad, and black vs. white are over. Batman movies work because he’s not the perfect hero- he’s an anti hero, and that’s what people can relate to. In his show Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan presents Walt
For my compare and contrast paragraph I chose Batman vs Superman. Batman and Superman are alike in a lot of ways but there some differences. There are both alike because they are both super heroes, both from DC, and both are good at what they do. Batman in different from Superman is that Batman can’t fly and Superman can fly because his powers. Another thing is that Batman fights in Gotham the most crime ridden city. Batman also wears black because so no can see him plus he wants to dress like bat. Superman different from Batman because Superman can shoot lasers from his eyes and breaths out ice. Superman also wears blue and red and fights in Metropolis city.
Bob Kane’s fictional vigilante, Batman, is Gotham City’s greatest hero, capable of overcoming difficult challenges and defeating intimidating opponents. However, does the resilient hero have what it takes to face the struggle of love? In “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Night”, Travis Langley, the author, delves into the mind of Batman to offer readers his professional opinion regarding Batman’s mental health after experiencing the most unfortunate event of his life, the death of his parents. Dr. Langley carefully analyzed every appearance Batman has made, whether it be comic or film, and studied Batman’s behavior to decode his hidden mental processes. He covers a wide range of mental illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, obsession, etc. However, the most intriguing topic concerning Batman’s mental stability was the evaluation of Batman’s love life. Batman has fallen in love but he lives a life of mystery and interacts with a false identity. To keep Gotham citizens unaware that Batman is Bruce Wayne, Bruce wears a bat-suit which is a dark outfit that includes a night bat-like mask while fighting crime. To further conceal his identity from the world, Bruce gave his real name an alter-ego that has the personality of a wealthy playboy while he acts out his true identity as Batman. Thus, Batman is unable to maintain a romantic relationship with anyone due to intimacy and his alter-ego, regardless if Batman wants a love life or not.
Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy constitutes a rather contemporary manifestation of an extensive body of artifacts in media culture. Media culture, Henry Giroux holds, “has become a substantial, if not the primary educational force in regulating the meanings, values, and tastes that set the norms, that offer up and legitimate particular subject positions – what it means to claim an identity as male, female, white, black, citizen, noncitizen” (2-3). Being the most popular remediation of the Batman over the past two decades, the Dark Knight Trilogy reveals contemporary attitudes of mainstream Hollywood film to issues revolving around sexuality and gender as two of the core facets of identity. In particular, the representation of masculinity,
Superhero comics contain many conventions such as morals, a motive, extraordinary superpowers, a back story, and so on. Batman and Superman are a couple of superheroes from a wide variety of superhero comics. Both of them try to protect mankind from any hurt, harm, or danger that may come. A similarity between both of these superheroes is that they want justice in the world. With so much crime and torture going on in the world, mankind looks for a higher power to help stop it. It takes great courage for this to happen. Batman and Superman both want to be able to defeat evil for a greater purpose. Superhero comics also contain super villains. These villains try to come and take over the world. Some come to kill and destroy anything or anyone
This paper describes three particular scenes throughout The Dark Knight and elaborates on those scenes in terms of three specific psychological principles. The psychological principles discussed in this paper is Kohlberg 's theory of postconventional morality, the social trap theory, and antisocial personality disorder.
The Dark Knight is a widely praised film from executive Christopher Nolan. It depends on a more practical variant of the Batman mythos. In this specific adjustment, Batman has gotten himself set against a cruel, psychotic killer named The Joker who simply needs to wreak devastation on Gotham City. Abnormality has gotten to be a standout amongst the most key parts in different movies, for example, The Dark Knight. I believe that The Dark Knight incorporates several of characters that would be determined to have some sort of psychological disorder. Be that as it may, I will look at Batman to decide the kind of psychological
Have you ever done something good and something bad happened as a result or done something bad and something good happen as a result? This happens many times throughout life as well as in movies and books. Two epitomes of this occurring are in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” and in the movie The Dark Knight. In “Julius Caesar” Caesar says and does things for the good of Rome yet is taken the wrong way and seen as a villain, resulting in his tragic death of being stabbed numerous by his closest friends. In The Dark Knight, the Joker is wicked and vile to the city of Gotham killing lots of people and can be seen as a hero because he exposed all the corruption in the government. Although they have similar experiences in adulthood Caesar and the Joker are opposites because of how they grew up, as a result Caesar is a hero and the Joker
“As a man, I 'm flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed; but as a symbol ... as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting” (Batman Begins). Batman is one of the most popular superheroes of all time. Although he has no superpowers, his willpower and intelligence combined with his physical prowess, and ingenuity make him an incredibly dangerous opponent. In his secret identity he puts on the mask of Bruce Wayne, billionaire, playboy. In Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, Batman combats crime and faces several villains and their plots to wreak havoc and cause chaos. The villains that he faces, eventually come back again trying to cause a great deal of turmoil for Gotham city. Batman’s moral code on not killing is pointless,
Keanu Reeves can be compared to Batman because they both help others because they have experienced the same events. Batman fights crime for Gotham because his parents were killed by a criminal. While Keanu donates his money to cancer research because his sister has battled leukemia for over ten years. Bruce Wayne uses Batman to hide who he is and that he is actually the one who is saving Gotham. Similarly, Keanu never attaches his name to any donations he makes to the organizations to keep from being the attention seeker. Bruce Wayne lives as a millionaire who has experienced traumatization and tries not to be noticed. Keanu is a well- known actor who has seen many traumatic events and he lives in an apartment in Manhattan rather than a mansion
A myth can be described as an origin, or a story relating to the beginnings of something. These stories can be completely truthful or fabricated to try to give some type of answer to life’s everyday questions. In the past, ancient civilizations used tales of gods and other supernatural beings to try to explain why things happen the way they happen. Many motifs across these civilizations remain prevalent by their overarching theme of bravery, creation and mystical occurrences. Nearly every section of the world had some type of ‘hero’ shown throughout their myths. Still today, we know of these tales of heroes from thousands of years ago. Characters like Herakles, Beowulf and Gilgamesh appear throughout entertainment today in various forms. Just
