Critique on “Full Metal Jacket” “Full Metal Jacket” a provocative movie full of themes that raise a lot of questions. “Full Metal Jacket” was an awkwardly amusing movie, if those are the right words to describe it. The movie has a humorous side, but one can still understand the seriousness of the issues shown throughout the movie, especially during the first part. It showed how in basic training men are trained to lose their identity, during the actual war scenes the men seem to completely lose themselves and become some sort of machine. After losing themselves the soldiers seem to become part of the theme of men’s self-destruction.
Outliers “The Story of Success” has opened my mind to certain things that were still unclear in my head. Like how just acting different in a similar situation can prevent a tragedy or stuff from happening. What we as human beings are capable of doing with so little effort and what we can do with so much more. The book inspired me. Right now I have goals, goals that I sometime doubt that I can achieve.
¨Silence, I have made my final decision!¨ Most foster homes treat children very wrong. Some foster homes do not care about the children who are there. Also, children might be put in the hands of careless parents. The parents might be abusive or do inappropriate things to them. Pony boy will stay will Darry and Soda Pop.
I think that the character Katniss Everdeen from the hunger games by Suzanne Collins and Julian from Wonder by R.J. Palacio have many differences, but I 'm going to find out the similarities between them such as being deceiving. The first reason why I think Julian is deceiving is because they act differently in front of different people the adults think that Julian is a great kid to have, but to the kids he is a bully and some people want nothing to do with him. This proves that julian is deceiving because he has gotten the adults to believe that he is the best, but in all reality he is not. And why I think Katniss is deceiving is for mostly the same reason but instead of acting different in front of people she acts different in front of the
Choices are a part of everyday life. Sometimes, what people feel is the right option at the time may regret it later or have someone else bring the harsh truth about the choice to their attention. Also, that mistake could deeply affect another person by changing their view on themselves, life, or the way others think of them. For example, in the book Tangerine, the protagonist, Paul, has poor eyesight but doesn’t know why. Instead of telling him the truth, his parents decide to keep it a secret.
Charlie chooses not to occupy himself with his trauma, so he subconsciously represses all the disturbing memories as much as he can. Even though he sometimes visits his aunt’s grave and prepares her a mix-tape. Charlie tells Sam something about Michael, he still represses how Aunt Helen molested him and immediately distracts himself when he thinks about her and Michael too much. His mind is “trying not to think about it too much because that makes it worse.” (79) Instead, Charlie mostly fills his mind with school, friends,
(99) Over a short period of time, Drummond was able to influence many people from the jury that they shouldn 't take the Bible literally and that everything isn 't as black and white as they previously thought. Drummond got the crowd laughing at his jokes and exposed the jury to different perspectives and some of them understood him. If the community were to teach evolution and creationism in schools, the children would be more educated and would be able to form their opinions based on what they were taught instead of being thrown in jail for their thoughts. Readers who argue that evolution and creationism cannot coexist may claim that because only some of the jury agreed with Drummond, it will be impossible to get the whole town to accept the idea of evolution and creationism being taught together. While it is true that not everyone in the room was pro-evolution at the time, if a law was passed to allow both subjects to be taught, a new generation of acceptance and learning can sprout
Most children are pure, but the role their parents, sibling, and friends set can easily change that. The young are what needs the center of attention in situations like this. People throughout time have always been blinded by the bad and are only able to see a crack of good. The thing that people don 't realise is that there 's even good in bad choices. Then yet there 's ignorant people that only think of themselves.
Melody realized that these blocks could be a hazard for the little boy. She tried to express her feelings to her mom but she never understood why melody was doing what she was doing. In the book it said, “ I pointed to the blocks. Mom said, “no sweaty. You don 't need those.
This is a reason of why the rules suppress these behaviors. Another example of something that suppresses this “Darkness” are adults and schools. Before the boys were on the island they were learning from their parents and schools. They knew that hurting people was a bad thing and they should not do it. At that time they were still “civilized.” When the boys were in the island with the rules still present, there was a boy that threw rocks at another boy, however he aimed to miss.
It most depends on the audience or the person who is listening to the story. With this quote, Alexie wants the readers to understand that reality is tied to the audience. The audience can make a true story seems false and vice versa. O’Brien says “Sanders made a little sound in his throat, like a sight, as if to say he didn’t care about if I believe it or not. But he did care” (560).
“A good war story is not simply about blood and death. It examines war as a transformation in the lives of those affected.” Comment on this statement, making close reference to David Malouf’s Fly Away Peter. War is a subject that fascinates us all in many ways; our reasoning is usually out of pure curiosity as most of us have never been, although we know that war is hell on earth. Know one wants to read or watch a war story filled with blood and death, what a miserable way to spend your time, but it is just a fact about war that can not be ignored. Human transformation is what really appeals to us; it fuels our knowledge about things we do not understand fully, just like Jim Saddler does in “Fly Away Peter”, he chooses to go to war because he has a similar curious drive that motivates him.
He told me that people are going to make fun of me, but I have the option to care or not. He even helps me with many things, like problems at school or just protecting me when something is going on. Yet, his childhood wasn 't all that great, as he struggled. Back then, before I was born and dad was a child, he was an introvert, and that was the biggest mistake of his life, as he did not go outside. Like I said, he was like me.
Lastly, I think there are many things that can be done to let people think for themselves and not be swayed by media. First off if there is something that is favored to one side there should be another segment of whatever that has the other side. Then people can watch it read and develop their own opinion on the situation and not be so swayed by media. By doing this I think more people would be stronger and have better communication skills because they would have a mind of their own instead of one that was brainwashed by the media. I also think that the news needs to report the actual truth about things and not make them sound as bad as they do so people will watch.
I believe that foster care system should be changed for the better of the child only because i know that most kids started off with a bad life and to top it off they have to be in a foster home and most disagreeable kids can just go to a juvenile detention center if not adopted.But really not a lot of things should change like when they do background checks it is most likely very necessary because you don 't want to put a miserable kid with it 's like fighting fire with fire it 's not good for either of them. But somewhat the system should also be changed because if you take in a misbehaving kid and just put them in juvenile detention center it won 't help them be off and to a better start it very confidence breaking the kids deserve
