Gender stereotype is depicted in a lot of movie genres especially in action blockbuster movies. This issue ignites a controversy that debates the relevance of gender stereotypes in this movie genre. I believe that gender stereotype is still prevalent in action blockbuster movies because of the ways men and women are portrayed, sexual objectification of women and emotional fragility of women towards men. Firstly, gender stereotype occurs in ways the men and women are portrayed in action blockbuster films. The male is always heroically personified – a man with brute strength, carrying a weapon on one shoulder and a lady on the other as he bolts through throngs of villains trying to murder him (Gamble).
Ancient Rome is recognized for strength in war and battles, so the ideal citizen would be strong and willing to fight. Hunt explains that in Rome “one man’s loss was another man’s gain” (177). The culture of Ancient Rome was aggressive, as the men were trained to fight and be devoted to their country. “Male elites had to be on guard to defend against and avenge any slights to their personal, family, and state honor” (Hunt 177). In The Aeneid, Virgil writes “Roman, remember by your strength to rule // Earth’s peoples-for your arts are to be these: // To pacify, to impose the rule of the law, // To spare the conquered, battle down the proud.” As Aeneas is looking at the fate of Rome in the underworld (1151-1154).
The socially given ideal male is the ultra-masculine male who is powerful, strong, independent, leadership, aggressive, and have high social status. In the film, the dominant version of masculinity is composed of male violence and male friendship. Those violence actions are seen as
Masculinity is a topic that has been challenged in our society for many years in different forms. It has been debated in discussion but, primarily in movies that our children watch. Being the ‘Alpha Male’ has always meant to have characteristics such as, Independence, Strong, Non-emotional, Competitive, and Aggressive. Though culture has assigned what masculinity betrays, huge film industries such as Pixar haven’t held back on showing the world that being a macho man isn’t always the best thing to be seen as. The ultramodern man is characterized to have feminine like qualities.

His movies are mostly great hits for the dramatic scenes, thrilling nature, and the great quality.

For example, the two directors James Cameron (who has made films The Terminator, The Abyss, Aliens, Titanic, and Avatar) and Neil Blomkamp, who is a more recent director who directed District 9 and Elysium.

The epic poem, The Iliad written by Homer shows the conflicts and events that occurred between the Greeks and Trojans during the Trojan War. Among both sides there are warriors who follow a distinct code, known as the heroic code. This Heroic code helps portray the characteristics of the warriors and their perspective on war. This distinct code is composed of many elements such as arete, acceptance of fate, honour, excellence in war, leadership, courage and power. These traits are shown within the main warriors, Hector and Achilles throughout the epic war poem and helps to guide their decisions.
There is a masculinity crisis happening around the world. The crisis presents itself in many ways. The most noticeable masculinity crisis is within militaries and police forces. The repercussions men face for stepping outside of their “man box” in these two professions can be devastating. The masculinity crisis is also happening within families, schools, religion, and sports; all of these structures meant to preserve strict gender guidelines for boys and men.
Although Holden gets along with children, he has trouble fitting in with society. He often shows many dissatisfactions with the people he knows and points out their flaws. He is skeptical of adults because they are not “innocent” anymore. Since Allie’s death, Holden went through a great deal, such as his older brother D.B. leaving to Hollywood to become a writer for movies (which Holden detested) and abandoning Holden, among other things.
The word stigma has a Greek origin; it comes from the word “mark”. Stigma is a negative label appointed to a specific group of people. Jay Ruderman states, "Because of the widespread stigma in Hollywood against hiring actors with disabilities, we very rarely see people with real disabilities on screen," To all of us out there that consume and invest our time and money in the entertainment industry, we should really take into account the importance of what we really need to see on the screens to make a positive impact in our society in this case seeing real actors with disabilities obtain their opportunities. He continued stating, "By systematically casting able-bodied actors portraying characters with disabilities, Hollywood is hurting the inclusion of people with disabilities in our country." Casting crews, directors, and producers need to realize that this should be a wakeup call for them and that they’re actually hurting this community instead of opening doors for them.
Summary Researchers found that discussions of masculinity impact men’s ability to seek, give, and receive emotional support. The men that the information was gathered from concluded that they found it difficult to seek help. In other words they believe they cannot or should not go to others for help. Young men from the ages of 21 to 36 are affected most by this accusation because they are actually aware of the role that society perceives on men. Masculinity is a barrier that affected peer, romantic, and family relationships.
With all presidents there comes the good and the bad, as for the bad George failed to deal with the many of the problems at home in the country instead focused mostly on the problems of other countries. This could have been because he was very familiar in dealing with foreign affairs causing him to ignore the domestic problems. An example of his failure to focus on America was he failed to create a new plan for the international environment and to place any responsibility on the United States. Even though he was able to decrease drug use in the middle class in the lower class drug use increased. Many presidents sometimes do not have the best relationship with Congress but eventually they work out their differences, especially when you are a Republican Party with a democratic influenced Congress.
There is a lot of pressure on men in society to be manly; however, what exactly does it mean to be manly? Though many people have different opinions, a lot of them conclude that a man has to be strong and somewhat emotionless to be considered a man. This assumption can lead to Toxic Masculinity, which is “A false idea that men are expected to be as manly as possible” (The Hard, Adrenaline-Soaked Truth About 'Toxic Masculinity, 2017). Men are forced to face these assumptions not only from those around him, but also from people he might see in Media. Media reinforces Toxic Masculinity which in turn causes men to belittle women.
Although he didn’t have an experience he did state his opinion. He basically said that immigration isn’t a bad thing that anyone should be welcome if they are wiling to contribute and for discrimination he stated that it was much worse before. Overall, I discovered interviews bring up interesting stories that you have only heard in movies. I noticed that everyone is different and that everyone has their own briefs. I felt like Mr. Perkins was a luck man who lived a life that many dreamed of, the American dream.
Although this is true for most people it is not true for all people. The problem according to them, then becomes that in many movies they promote not wanting to move up in social classes. They use the movie, Wall Street (1987) as an example. They explain how the main character gets promised, everything he ever wanted, (which at the time was riches) by a wealthy Wall
