The thing that makes Shane truly realize how much he needs his dad is when his father is badly injured at a rodeo. Shane should have realised earlier that his father is not going to be there forever and he should enjoy the moments that they will share together, instead of ignoring both the fact that his father will not be there one day and the insurmountable value of the time they spend together. The first example that Shane takes his father for granted is when he and Casey are talking about his dad and Casey tells him “You expect too much from people, sometimes, Shane.” (Halvorson, page 92.)
One of the main similarities of the movie and story is that Harrison is shot and killed in both, an important difference in the movie is that Harrison plants a bomb in the movie. The main points of this are that Kurt Vonnegut was showing us that governments are to controlling and that we as people are too tolerant of the government. Throughout this story I interpreted that Vonnegut was trying to show us what true equality is and how to stand up for what you believe
Since Shane is able to make his own decisions, he can choose to use his powers for the of the town and the citizens. When Shane denied the job offer from Rufus Ryker, it showed the audience that he is loyal to Joe Starrett. At the end of the movie, Shane, against Starrett’s wishes, goes into a gunfight with a skillful outlaw, Jack Wilson. In the saloon, they have an exchange of words that ends with a gunfight. Shane ends up shooting Jack Wilson, Rufus Ryker and Morgan Ryker.
The intent of this movie was fulfilled by showing the audience the points he was addressing. The writer showed the cruel violence that was happening in Los Angeles and how no one on the outside seemed to know or even care about what was going on in the hood. The way the movie was produced showing a majority of the focus from Tre Styles point of view was helpful in letting the viewers understand how it is to live in the hood from someone’s perspective. There was two particular scenes in the movie that I felt was key to the development and understanding of the film. The first one was the scene where Tre’s dad Furious Styles takes him and Ricky to this billboard that is advertising “Cash for your home”.
Although many of the prisoners mock Wiesel and his father for marching, the father and son tolerate the ridicule and are aware that they have each other's backs. The father-son relationship here expands as they know that the survival of each other is more important than any sort of humiliation or embarrassment. When Wiesel's father thought that he was going to die, he says, "Here, take this knife… I won't need it anymore. You may find it useful.
Ideology The movie that I have chosen to analyze is the 2004 film Crash. This film emphasizes the intertwining cultures of today 's society and the conflicts faced from class, culture, stereotypes and racism. The explicit content of this film is to teach the audience that one person 's choices has an impact on another person or multiple people and to persuade the audience that we as a society need to change how we treat each other. The films overt message does generate social dialogue, however, this film can be interpreted by the audience through their own beliefs and behaviors causing some misinterpretation.
John’s name is important to him as he says in Act 4, and he is willing to give it up for his wife and it is worth it. John is honorable because his wife is the most important person in his life, and he would do anything for her. John is a good husband because of his selfless actions toward his wife. John’s portrays honor throughout The Crucible in his loyalty, the good he gives to others and he's a good husband.
In the book A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, my favorite character is Owen Meany. I admire the way he cares about his friends and is willing to do anything for them. He is concerned about John coming to Vietnam, so he cuts off his finger in order to prevent him from going into the war. This would be a very hard thing to do, but he cares a lot about John and wants to protect him. Another thing I enjoy is Owen’s jokes and humor.
My research included examples and information related to racial microaggressions and the impacts as it related to media exposure, such as movies and TV shows. The film industry acts as a stabilizing force when it comes to forming preconceived notions about African Americans as it has impacted our belief and value systems. We expect them to be athletically built, deviant, and angry. We no longer view them as unique individuals, rather a group of individuals that possess the same characteristics and skills.
Murders, lies, suspense are all of the things you will see in an Alfred Hitchcock film. Films today are still using the same concept that Hitchcock used when he made films. Throughout the years Hitchcock made many groundbreaking films, and in 1963 he released an American horror film title The Birds. The film stars Tippi Hedren, who plays Mealanie Daniels, and Rod Taylor, who plays Mitch Brenner in the film. The Birds focus on a series of sudden, and unexplained violent bird attacks on the people of Bodega Bay, California over the course of a few days.
The film Selma directed by Ava DuVernay expertly represents the struggles African-Americans and supporters faced while advocating for an end to the corrupt exploitation of the civil rights of African-Americans. The issues that African-Americans contested during the film accurately represents the sentiment of many African-Americans during the Civil Rights movement. Because of the compelling and despairingly honest depiction of the struggles that the African-American community faced during this time, the film was able to create an accurate account and the importance of the historical events surrounding the march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. Near the beginning of the film, an African-American woman is denied her voter’s registration, solely because she is a person of color, a woman no less. The woman’s walks away from the office dejected and resigned to the idea that prejudice will never change and African-Americans will always be treated as lesser.
