Field of Dreams is just that, a field that fulfills the dreams of the owner. Field of Dreams, directed by Phil Alden Robinson, is about a farmer from Iowa, Ray, who is out in his field of corn one night and hears a whispering voice call out to him. No one in his family is able to hear the voice, but him. At first he believes he is going crazy until he hears it repeatedly and signs were given to him on the task that needed to be completed. Ray, with the support of his family, decided to do exactly what the voice says, bringing him on an adventure. Throughout the movie he meets several guests, who happen to be legendary baseball players who are deceased. Ray believes he is doing everything for them, until a special guest comes to visit.
Westley, the protagonist of The Princess Bride, is loyal, clever, and heroic. He is very dedicated to saving Buttercup and does everything he can to get her back from Prince Humperdinck.

Often times high school students align themselves with one set group of values or expectations causing a third party to assume one’s personality, otherwise known as a stereotype. These stereotypes whether a jock, a trouble-making jerk, a rich popular kid, a genius, or the weird student that that is very misunderstood; cause people to not take the time to get to know one another. Many people would fit into one of these social categories, as do the main characters in The Breakfast Club, produced and directed by John Hughes in 1984. Hughes argues that everyone is different and no one, not even adults, have the right to determine a person’s worth based on their looks or social status. His argument is effective for its intended audience due his use of exaggerated stereotypes and relatable teenage topics.
I also admired the way the movie shows the two coaches working together. This made them ambitious and highly skilled professionals. The movie was warm and heartfelt, as well as, moving. Coaches today have to abide by so many stipulations. Before each game, they should view this movie and become enlighten to remember, the

Many movies use imagery to make a point. For example the movie “The Patriot” by Mel Gibson, the main character Benjamin Martin is trying to keep his family and country in tact during the Revolutionary war. He uses four symbols, the Toy Soldiers, the North Star, the Cross, and the American Flag.
The movie Chariots of Fire directed by Hugh Hadson tells us the true story of two British athletes, Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, participating in the Olympic Games in Paris in 1924. One of the athletes is Eric Liddell, a Scottish preacher who tries to honor his faith and the Church. He is convinced that God is pleased when he realized through his sport itself. The other one is Harold Abrahams who is an English Jew and a student fights for his personal recognition in society who still reject him because of his religion. Both of them wants to win the Olympic final in the 100-meter run. But they also take physical and mental pressures in order to achieve their goal. The movie’s itself tries to show us that their winning was a consequence of their intense belief in themselves and their cause.
The movie Hoop Dreams centered on a pair of intercity youths, William Gates and Arthur Agee. Both of them lived in the projects surrounding Chicago. Their families were economically and educationally disadvantaged. William and Arthur had almost everything imaginable trying to prevent their success. However, they shared a dream of playing in NBA. With the support of their families, William’s and Arthur’s motivation to accomplish this goal led them to fantastic high school basketball careers.
The documentary begins character development of William Gates and Arthur who lives in a poorly neighborhood and it’s called the hood or ghetto because there are many drug dealers and gangsters in Chicago.The camera shots took place where they began to film the two freshman African American students who always wanted to become a basketball player and play for the NBA.There are sound effects in every scene like if it’s a sad scene going on then there’ll be sad music to it.

The first event I attended was the film on October 14 that was put on by the SDSU men’s basketball team, Hoop Dreams. Before the movie started we got to hear stories from two of the seniors on this year’s SDSU’s men’s basketball team. One of the things I learned while attending the event was how basketball changed the lives of those two seniors. The senior players that spoke where from Flint, MI and Chicago, IL. Both talked about how basketball changed their lives for the better. They both grew up in the inner city were school wasn’t very important. It was very eye opening to see how much sports can change the mind set of young individuals. If you want to be play at the next level you do need to succeed in school as well as in basketball.
Wasteland is a documentary by Lucy Walker that depicts the lives of selected garbage pickers in Jardim Gramacho – a massive dumpsite found in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. The film is about Vik Muniz’s 2-year journey back to his home country seeking to give back to an impoverished community through making images out of an unusual material – trash. The film featured 7 garbage pickers from the landfill, and each has a story that brought them to their current places. One unique thing about the whole creative process is that the pickers themselves became part of it. Vik imagined that as they work on their own and each other’s images, the pickers will not only show themselves to a broader world that is for now comfortably oblivious of their existence, but also see themselves differently (Fuchs, 2010). It was captivating how the film has transformed lives and how it imparts a provoking thought to
I also learned that be determined, dedicated in everything that I will do, don’t lose hope and have a patience in everything because it will be very fruitful, successfully and worthy someday. This movie is very helpful to me to become sensitive to the person that have diseases like The Parkinsonism and even other disease of course as a Future Lasallian Pharmacist, I want to invent drugs or medicines that can help patients to be healed. I think others will learn from it by being sensitive and be of help this patient to not make them as a happiness but inspiration because they suffering to this disease yet the patients are very strong and they overcome their sickness no matter
The movie “Sleepers” is about four young boys between the ages 13-14 who commit a serious crime by accident. In this paper I will argue why the boys should be dealt with under the Restorative Justice System, and not under the Retributive Justice System. I will also talk about how they would be dealt with under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). The four boys are clearly very upset with themselves because they let what they thought would be just a fun prank turn into a violent crime.
The film centers on Pat Jr., a Philadelphia native who at the beginning of the film is released from a residential treatment facility by his mother against the court’s advice.

Pat had shown behavioral and emotional disorders prior to this hospital visit, but this visit was court ordered so he had to go.
