As far as the characters of both the novel and the film versions of Fight Club are concerned, we could easily see that some aspects of main characters in the novel, especially Tyler Durden and Marla Singer, are slightly modified in the film version. Fincher’s depiction of Tyler in the movie is closer to the popular culture, while Palahniuk doesn’t favour a popular character as he intends to create a more non-capitalist character. In this sense, Fincher’s manner as a director could be interpreted as a betrayal to the source material. What’s more, Tyler’s portrayal in the novel is more rebellious and chaotic; nevertheless, he isn’t that much impressive in the movie. In other words, Fincher tones down the extent of Tyler’s violence and his approach to capitalism both of which are the main interests of the novel.

Murder is quite a big deal and would definitely go under as being the bad guy. She also feels superior to everyone so she sticks her nose up to everything and treats others below her because of her family’s former position in the town. But on the other hand, she is the protagonist because one, the town is part of the reason of her killing Homer and always pitying her and saying that she would live alone forever and two, because her dad had raised her that way. Her dad had kept her sheltered way too long and when any guy would try to get with her, he would turn them down because they were not "worthy enough." She is also the major character in the story and there would be no one else to be the protagonist.
Producers of the newest superhero movie, Black Panther, “check off a number of identity boxes with its almost exclusively black cast and a cohort of strong female characters” but still were chided because of the lack of gay and lesbian characters (Richardson). Many people anticipated the film and had high hopes of it being the first marvel film to “feature an openly gay character” (Richardson). Despite the record that Marvel Studios has set with making the most diverse superhero movie, there are still critics that say it’s not diverse enough. The arguments that Hollywood, even with the lengths they have been taken to share all different cultures, still lacks the representation of women and people of color still exists. However even with people arguing for even more diversity the film industry is unmistakably making incredible progress and is continuing to create more diversity, undoubtedly heading in the right direction.
In the short stories “A Rose for Emily” and “The Story of an Hour,” the authors use literary devices to create vibrant female characters. These literary devices include diction, imagery, language, and sentence structure. “The Story of an Hour,” written by Kate Chopin, opens with a woman, Louise Mallard, who has a heart disease, and her friends must gently break the news to her that her husband has passed away in a railroad accident. She mourns briefly, but then realizes that she can now live for herself, instead of just as someone’s wife. Shockingly, she walks downstairs after fleeing from her friends’ horrible news, and her husband walks in the door.
Dismantling the Notions from “Eat Pray Love” The opinion piece by Liz Jones titled “Eat and Pray all you like but it won’t make you lovelier” is a critical piece about the ideas from the movie “Eat Pray Love”, which was based of Elizabeth Gilbert 's novel of the same name. In the article Jones 's purpose is to persuade the audience, which are middle aged American women, how middle-age women who go on self help tourism trips, such as the type seen in Eat pray Love, are absurdly minded, thus conveying that such kinds of trips are unreasonable. In order to accomplish this, Jones utilizes a harsh tone when describing expectations of self-help travel versus reality, making “Eat Pray Love” appear to be purposely deceptive, using quotations on Gilbert 's own words and by conducting an Ad Hominem attack on Elizabeth Gilbert herself to encourage readers to critically question the notion of self-help tourism. One way in which middle aged American women are convinced that self-help tourism does not guarantee self-fulfilment, thus these trips are unreasonable is by utilizing a harsh tone when describing Jones’s anecdotes of her own travel experiences. In the article, when describing Jones 's own travel experiences, she writes in a critical fashion, such as by saying “I was stressed” and by mentioning that her hotel was “full of drunk Australians” and how the “beaches were dirty”.
