Just over ten years ago, Cloverfield was released to the public. The movie starts off as a group friends prepare for a going away party. During the party, New York City begins to start having mysterious earthquakes and power outages. The entire movie follows the group of friends as they try to get to their friend stuck in her apartment building, and then getting out of the city while trying to avoid whatever is terrorising the city. 10 years later, The Cloverfield Paradox was released.
How does this film portray stereotypes and fears? How does technology play a role in the film, and what does it all mean? As cliché as it may sound, the underlying theme of this movie is greed. Not just financial greed, but greed in pride and the greed one may have for knowledge.
The major issue in the move Jurassic Park is that of cloning. There are many ethical issues that are a concern for many people. One of these issues is whether or not cloning should be done in the first place. Another of the issues facing the cloning process today would be the cost involved as well as the potential ecological impact the cloned animals could face or cause.
The concept of ethics entails systemizing, justifying, and recommending right and wrong conduct. It involves in practical reasoning: good, right, duty, obligation, virtue, freedom, rationality, and choice. Humanity has questioned this concept of ethics and ‘good’ for as long as it has survived, as it deals with real-life issues such as “what is morally right and wrong?” and “how do people ought to act?” Such ethical dilemmas can be found in people’s everyday lives, and although appears to be a straightforward question, there is much debate over which standard of behavior people should abide to when responding to certain situations, and determining what is morally right or wrong.
For example, Akinwotu and McVeigh describe how Nigerian schoolgirls were captured and were forced to work for the terrorists groups and do horrible things (Akinwotu & McVeigh 14). The nigerian girls were victims and were forced to do evil things such as killing innocents. This was because of thats idea of discrimination and racism in our own societies that is not officially over. Another example, “...that a large Muslim minority which was poorly integrated and struggles to fit into society” (Burke 2). Muslim terrorists were evil because of the discrimination and low opportunities offered in Belgium.
The movie Wit (Bosanquet & Nichols, 2001) focuses on Dr. Vivian Bearing, an English professor who is diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. It chronicle’s Vivian’s experiences with her health care team up until her death. Throughout the movie her doctors, Doctor Kelekian and his fellows, most notably Jason, make many errors while treating Vivian. They communicate with Vivian in ways that make her feel overwhelmed and uncomfortable, violate ethical principles by ignoring her autonomy and not sharing critical information about her health with her, and failing to addressed her spiritual needs. Vivian’s nurse, Susie, does her best to care for Vivian. She incorporates Swanson’s (1991) “Empirical Development Of a Middle Range Theory of Caring” processes such as knowing and being with, into her care and upholds patient advocacy, but she too makes mistakes that hinder Vivian’s wellbeing.
In this case study, I would say a health care provider should maintains a professional bounder of relationship with patient. In the case of Jason and Gabriela, Jason should maintain his professional boundaries with Gabriela; however, in the last night of her discharge He gave a hugs her and kisses her cheek and sharing personal information with Gabriela is unethical. It is not okay Jason to take her out because health care provider should not cross the boundaries line between patient and care practitioner. The acquaintance prior to hospitalization also can make a difference with patient relation due to knowing about the patient background and other information might affect the patient –care practitioner relation.it is not ethical to contact

What is going on in California is wrong when the Elements of Ethics are applied to the situation. The Impartiality Principle says that all persons are equal and should be treated as such. The people in California involved with this underground network are not being treated equally or treating others equally. These illegal immigrants are being given a special opportunity, finding refuge from churches and private homes, which other illegal immigrants aren’t.
The story of Erin Brockovich is indeed one concerning levels of ethical dilemmas. What Erin Brockovich went through in the entire sphere of her job at the law firm with Ed Masry and her case concerning actions of PG&E, depicts quantum of all of the five ethical principles in one jock combined. However, what is of grave appreciation and instrumental value that how she and the people around her, knowingly or unknowingly, portrayed vivid views on personal ethics and contradictions towards internal believes and motives with such brilliance and articulate.

Through movies’ ability to stay grounded in some truths, yet also push social boundaries, it is clear that films shape culture, and culture shapes film, making more important now than ever that filmmakers are aware of what they are putting out and the implications they will have. Not every movie producer
In the movie Crimson Tide, we look to the question ethical decisions, and what someone would do when thrown into a situation that made them question themselves, and who they serve for. In this example, when serving in the United States Military, once a solider is given orders, that solider must follow the orders out and not to question them. The trust between the solider and the higher command giving orders is almost based on blind faith. The solider relies on the higher commands decision of protecting democracy, even if someone, or a lot of people are killed. Is it an ethical decision to follow a commander’s order even if it means killing mass numbers of innocent civilians?
