The making of film, or the concept of it, has been around since the beginning of the 18th century. The lens of the camera has captured some of the most beautiful things, but also the most prejudice. Stereotypes of races, ethnicities, and gender have always been around but were widely considered acceptable in films of that era. Almost as long as there have been people filming, there have been people fighting for equality to be presented on the big screen. Danez Smith is one of these modern fighters in his free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood.” As Smith uses his words to create a poetic trailer for this stereotype-free movie, he tells the story of a young African American boy. Rather than being focused on his color, he focuses on his heroic actions when fighting wandering dinosaurs.

In the novel Jurassic Park written by Michael Crichton, an arrogant scientist named John Hammond who is the CEO of International Genetic Technologies has created a park called Jurassic Park where dinosaurs are alive and roaming the park. Hammond has little interest in the technical aspect of the genetical engineering and only cares about the profit that he will make when the park opens. Towards the climax of the novel, his darker side begins to show and begins to care less about his employees and cares more of the animals themselves which will ultimately lead up to bad consequences. Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, is possibly one of the most memorable books of all time. It is about a man named Victor

Lion, directed by Garth Davis, is a compelling interpretation of a remarkable true story of Saroo Brierley, lost as a child and reunited with his family 25 years later. Throughout Davis explores the unique circumstances under which Saroo is separated and reconnected with his family and his journey along the way. At some points of the film, I was confronted by how Saroo, a five-year-old boy, expertely navigates, with great instinct and genuine innocence, through an extended, yet life threatening ride. To put it in other words, Lion is a journey that grabs you entirely; whether you want it or not, and you are involved in each and every scene.
In the short story, “A sound of Thunder”, Ray Bradbury used figurative language to make a bigger impact on the story. When Eckels goes into the office he sees and hears, “... A sound like a gigantic bonfire burning all of Time, all the years and all the parchment calendars- all the hours piled high and set aflame.” The author, Ray Bradbury, wanted his audience to have a specific image set in the audience’s head. By using a simile he help the reader imagine how Eckle’s is going to get to the past. Once they are in the past and see the Tyrannosaurus Ray Bradbury uses imagery to explain what the dinosaur looks like. The Tyrannosaurus was described as, “...thirty feet above half the trees, a great evil of god, folding its delicate watchmaker’s
Summer is finally here. That’s something you'd think I’d be excited about. Well, not exactly. I haven’t been to school in months. No one has. This incident caused so much havoc in our small little town, so no one cares about school or work anymore. Everyone’s too busy trying to survive the outbreak instead. What happened to cause our quiet little town complete mayhem? Dinosaurs. Over grow lizards. Apparently the scientists have never seen Jurassic Park. It’s a clear reason of why you don’t try and bring extinct animals back to life. They’re dead for a reason. Anyways though, they just so happened to make the most dangerous dinosaurs first. They ended up growing faster than expected and were fully grown in 2 months. So now, there's just a bunch
Rebecca Skloot wanted to get this word across about how race, class, ethics, and other factors play a role in the science world today. Especially with the need of biological samples for research. When Skloot first found out about the cells, her father had gotten sick with an illness that was undiagnosable. Once it was determined he had brain damage, he had enrolled in a medical study. She had took him to many doctors appointments, and everything for the study. So when her professor begun talking about the HeLa cells, it sparked a similarity with her own father.
“The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie, not necessarily one of my movies, brings a whole set of unique experiences. Now, through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time” (“Steven Spielberg Quotes”). As the inspiration for how many films are produced, Steven Spielberg is a director, producer, and writer. Having won 3 Academy Awards, several of his movies have set box office records, including Jaws and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. Steven Spielberg revolutionized the film industry through unique camera work and new subject matters in movies.
While it was a common practice for ancient civilizations to place females in a subordinate position in society, Etruscans' mentality and attitude on contrary were reversed. They treated females in a very dignified manner as women had the freedom of speech, financial ability and most importantly power. Etruscans had one of the highest gender equalities in contrast to other ancient civilizations of that existing period for instance the Romans because in Roman societies, symposiums were considered strictly as an all male sector only where it involves male thoughts sharing, festive drinking etc. but Etruscans were on the exact opposite end. Etruscan females were allowed to participate in the symposiums, attend banquets, share a toast with
The following work of interest is “Who goes there?” or “The Thing” by John W. Campbell. Originally written in 1938, “Who goes there?” tells the story of a group of scientific researchers in Antarctica who discover a space ship and an alien creature entombed in ice. As the story progress the crew realize that the creature has escaped and has one deadly ability, the ability to imitate any living thing down to the cellular level. The story touches a bit on some of the philosophy of being human and what it would actually take to imitate a human perfectly. Some of the differences from the short story to the film are much similar to the ones mentioned with Jurassic park. Differences like this are found in timeline, and some of the big climaxes of small events that occur throughout the story.
Michael Crichton gets the plot in Jurassic park moving quickly very early in the story. Crichton doesn’t try to hide the fact that John Hammond’s Jurassic Park is going to, and is already failing. The setting of the first chapter is a dark stormy night in Costa Rica and a helicopter braves this storm to bring a dying patient from a nearby island; the island owned by John Hammond. A man tells the doctor that the patient is a victim of a construction accident, and that he has been run over by a backhoe. With all the doctor’s experience she knows that that this is not the truth. The patient has the telltale signs of being attacked by a large animal, but he goes into convulsions, screams “Raptor, lo sa Raptor!” and then dies before he can give
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.
