Godzilla: The planet of the monsters is the new film about the mythical G of the TOHO born of Japan's fear of radiation after the tragic bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The film that started it all was Japan under the terror of the monster directed by Ishiro Honda in 1954 and that would lead to a long franchise that is still alive and
Gojira, or Godzilla as the film was called in the West, was first released by Toho Studios in 1954, and is one of the best known examples of the Japanese society’s fear and warnings against the destructive side of nuclear technology. In the original film, Godzilla is depicted as an absolute terror. In the opening scene, he attacks in the dead of the night, destroying a series of fishing boats and leaving only one survivor to tell the tale; for the first 22 minutes of the film, only whispers and rumors mention Godzilla and his terrifying carnage. In the next three depictions of Godzilla’s attacks, the film shows destroyed houses in the night, villagers escaping, and ravaged trees and shores, but all one sees of Godzilla is a part of his foot in one scene (Ikeda 2011). His obscurity becomes a symbol for the Japanese people’s fear of that which cannot be seen — invisible radiation, sickness, and death.
The two are first compared when Serizawa descends into the ocean and Godzilla is revealed through an upward camera tilt, though other techniques are employed to compare the two. For example, the same bubbles that fly over Godzilla as the Oxygen Destroyer begins to take effect are edited to pass over Serizawa in the very next shot. The fact that the Oxygen Destroyer (the symbol for too-dangerous weapons technologies) synthesized with the comparison of the two characters implies an ideological connection between them. The forces of gravity used in the two homes of these characters implies that Godzilla should be sympathized with, like humanity. Godzilla is not only a symbol for the destruction of humanity caused by nuclear weapons, but the destruction of nature as well.
This is complicated by the emergence of Godzilla, which was caused by Hydrogen and Atomic Bomb testing and alludes to Godzilla’s symbolic significance. Godzilla is a representation of the destructive power of nuclear weaponry, as well as pointing to their disturbance of nature. The coming together of a new weapon technology being used to save Japan from the symbol of nuclear demise leads us to the climactic clash between Serizawa (and his Oxygen Destroyer) and Godzilla, where Godzilla’s verticality is subverted. When the Oxygen Destroyer kills Godzilla, the monster is carried to the surface, which is the first and last instance of Godzilla being disconnected from the ground in the film. The moment is able to fill the spectator with awe because the Oxygen Destroyer performed an impossible task: overpowering Godzilla’s gravity.
Grant is the one who leaves to try and restore the power himself; in the film, it is Ellie Sattler who does this. In the novel, John Hammond is more apathetic and megalomaniacal, completely dismisses Dr. Malcolm’s “chaos theory” as mere nonsense, and clearly cares more about making a profit off of his genetic creations and his grandiose theme park than the current situation at hand (and it is that same arrogance that eventually leads to his death); in the film, John Hammond takes on a more heroic persona, he clearly sees the terror and disbelief of the cloned dinosaurs and has no further plans with Jurassic Park after seeing that, and actually cares about the survivors and attempts to get them off of the island in any way he can (plus, he actually survives to be featured prominently in the next installment in the series). In the novel, Donald Gennaro is not present for the tyrannosaur attack and leaves the island with the rest of the survivors (although it is mentioned that he would later die due to disease between the events of this novel and its sequel, The Lost World); in the film, Gennaro is present for the tyrannosaur attack and is actually eaten alive (filling in the role of the scrapped character of Ed Regis in the film
Garrod was initially apprehensive in Audi’s self-driving car. Daniel Suarez, a former systems consultant to Fortune 1000 companies, is no exception and disagrees with the TED talk because he is against the evolution and creation of robots with the power to kill. The new technological inventions are taking power and responsibility away from humans and placing it into the hands of the machines. Due to the threat of hacking drones with electromagnetic jamming to change their objectives, we should design drones to know their objective beforehand and react to unforeseen circumstances without any outside guidance (Suarez, 2013). This may increase society’s fears because pre-programming the missions' objectives increase the robots' responsibilities.
V for Vendetta is a movie set in near future in England. V, a victim of the government’s program aimed at preparing biological weapon, who survived the fire accident at the Larkhill Testing facility is adamant to overthrow the corrupt government and bring anarchy in the county. The protagonist possess superpowers but the essence of the movie is not displaying those powers but the idea he carries. In popular culture, V has been displayed as a terrorist, but this stand is debatable. The movie depicts the despotic rule of the government and how it curtailed the freedom of the people.
Maybe he is so empathetic he actually feels the pain for Arthur Holmwood from the loss of Lucy, and that fuels him to take down Dracula. With the examples given, Van Helsing could actually symbolize a superhero with all he does. He scarifies a lot for the good of others, and in the end of the story he takes down the bad guy. Although he did not physically kill Dracula, he helped lead the group to finding him. He has no reason to help others but he does it anyway.
They discover that they were, in fact, the result of attacks by a monster who, in turn, attempts to have them killed by a hollowgast. Jacob and the others escape from the hollowgast. Jacob faces it alone and kills it, but a short time later finds out, along with the others in his group, that Miss Peregrine has been kidnapped by the monster. Jacob and the girl lead a rescue effort, killing the monster and rescuing Miss Peregrine. Meanwhile, something has gone wrong with Miss Peregrine's time loop, and time in the past is moving forward at its regular rate.
After feeling he has had enough of life at home he runs away to the land of the Wild Things. Max eventually reaches an island where he encounters seven large monsters. The movie is heartwarming and full of incredible moral lessons, however, Sandie Chen of Common Sense Media believes that the movie Where the Wild things Are is “not appropriate for younger kids” citing that the movie “explores mature themes of loneliness, insecurity, and fear of change, both within Max's human family and the one he finds on his adventure” but i believe that the movie also have important lessons to teach children such as accepting differences in others and the importance of found
