DBA Student : Romeo B. Leneses Jr. Astrological Sign: PISCES Subject: Philosophy of Business Professor: Dr. Carlos Manapat The Book of Eli Superbly written and astonishing storytelling! At first, I thought the Book of Eli is just another ferocious film featuring what life would have been after the judgement day. But beyond the blood-sputtered scenes and vulgar language, viewers will appreciate the simplicity of the story and the complexity and profoundness of its nature and form. The film features a compelling story based on the Christian bible which for me exceeded majority of some motion pictures released in the past years. Denzel Washington, an Oscar winner and a self -professed Christian, was able to portray his character with so much sincerity and profoundness of depth and emotion.
The show lasted for nine seasons while other mockumentaries such as Parks and Recreation lasted 7 and Arrested Development lasted 4. The show ending left the audience “satisfied and happy with no lingering questions or doubts, unlike the show Seinfeld that left “with a walk-off so disappointing and bizarre that most of us have suppressed the memory.” (Stuever) Even though the quality of television has improved since the finale, for example mockumentaries like Modern Family, The Office, is the best U.S. mockumentary ever because of the ingenious cast, whimsical jokes, and the captivation between the characters Jim and
The Office is a popular comedy television show that was originally broadcasted in the United Kingdom and then later made into an adaptation in several different countries. While the original British show only had two seasons and low ratings, the show became one of Britain’s top exports after ending. From Germany to Australia to the United States and France, The Office has been readapted as well as broadcasted in it’s original British form. The glocalization of a show, such as The Office, can be beneficial to both the native and adapted country or it can be seen as a failure in the adopted country, depending on its reception from viewers. Television shows are one of the biggest forms of media that have been globalized and popularized around
Jim Benson, who is an author of the best selling “Dear Dumb Diaries” children’s series, establishes an ironic twist on technology dependence. His article, “12 Hilariously True Cartoons That Skewer Our Addiction To Tech” focused on what technology dependency looks like. Benson has made many several cartoons about other issues, but he decided to put his work around technology dependency. One of the cartoons that speak a lot is a child who asks permission to use his computer for a while. But after using the computer, he becomes an adult and cannot take back his childhood back.
Ben Weissman, another fictional character who plays the role of a cartoonist in the Washington Post & also Alic e Paul’s love interest illustrates the importance of the entertainment factor. He was used to add the romantic element to the movie, which is in huge contrast to history which has no mention of Alice Paul ever being involved with someone during this period while the suffrage movement was on. Overall the film beautifully portrays Alice Paul & her struggle for the 19th Amendment to the American constitution even though the truth was rewritten in some parts, new characters incorporated. This attempt was pretty much successful. The changes & additions made the movie watchable which perhaps
Supernatural is a TV show that flies under the radar, but still manages to get by due to great character and story development. We could say that it was a cult show if it wasn’t for Netflix. I started watching Supernatural back in August of 2016 and I was impressed how good it was for a low budget TV show. Although, after every season I began to realize that this show has a bunch of hidden or exposed stereotypes. The first stereotype is that Supernatural is gender bias.
Context This television show was written by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan; it was originally released in September the 23rd of 2009 and is still ongoing. During the time this show started airing there was a big range of refining so that same sex couples get equal entitlements and responsibilities as heterosexual couples like social security, employment, taxation, immigration and more. Some states have banned same sex marriages; some companies have made a rule ‘Our Business won’t serve gays’. In this time and age society has changed a lot of things, but in some people just don’t want to accept it. Purpose Its purpose is entertainment for the audience but also to show that it doesn’t matter whether a couple is heterosexual or homosexual, whether they were married from the start or got remarried, they can still be family.

Gladiator was met with a roar of approval and many became fans after one viewing. American psycho however was not the same. There was much confusion, and some never bothered to look past that feeling. Of those who were not confused, many were outright offended by its themes and messages (Taylor, 2014). This is what lead to a significant difference in the ratings and reviews of these two movies.
Cultural exchange is a way to share different ideas, understandings, morals and aspects is an incredible thing to process. Shakespeare’s literature was widely distributed not only in the Renaissance but around the world to modern day.

At home, such talk remained on the fringes of political life even as the war got under way. But fueled in part by anger over the deceptions of the war, the lack of accountability or disclosure on the part of the Bush administration with respect to the 9/11 Commission, and civil liberties abuses in the aftermath of the attacks, the popularity of conspiracy theories was steadily growing in 2003 and 2004.Then, in the summer of 2004, Michael Moore 's Fahrenheit 9/11 was released, earning more than $100 million to become the top-grossing documentary of all time. While Fahrenheit 9/11 does not allege any sort of Bush-led conspiracy concerning 9/11, the film does depict a government hell-bent on covering up how much it knew prior to 9/11 and using the attacks as a false pretext for a war with Iraq. In 2004, more and more Americans were willing to raise these kinds of questions. Bush derangement syndrome , as Charles Krauthammer would famously call the emerging trend of Bush hatred, had not yet reached a boiling point.

Jesse M. Wellens and his girlfriend Jeana have done countless of rude and silly pranks on each other in YouTube since 2007. Their YouTube series has garnered over 1 billion views and numerous laughs to start with. While I believe they do love each other, I fear one day the couple will lose an eye or limb by their reckless pranks. Here’s a couple gems from their YouTube series Jaboody Dubs/Studios: Dubbing over movies is not a new idea on the internet. However Jaboody Dubs/Studios have the funniest dubs of awful television commercials, infomercials, cartoons and awful b-movies you would have ever seen.
No. I am the one who knocks!” (Vince Gilligan). This is why vicariously living through anti-heroes has become so popular in this day and age because people are able to become this invisible character in the hour that they are watching the show. They can feel the dangerous and horrifying emotions of Walter White but then as soon as they turn the TV off they have the
