In The Wizard of Oz, the theme is related to the comforts of home, lies and deceit, courage, explorations and maybe a little politics of 1890s America. While Wicked’s themes seem to be aimed at beauty, racism, acceptance, good and evil, and friendship. The themes for both musicals differ greatly and send a much different message to the viewer. The Wizard of Oz gives off more of a “lets go explore” and friendship kind of feeling whereas Wicked makes you think about society and how we treat others. The biggest factor in that is Elphaba, and how she is treated differently because her skin color is green.
There are many differences in the plots related to the White Witch between the book “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and the movie edition “The Chronicle of Narnia. However, the core of this role remains consistent. The most obvious difference the description of white witch. In the book, this witch is descripted as having black hair and wearing a crown made of gold. In the movie, the director tries his best to make the image of this witch be consistent with the typical witch image.
I believe that finger monkey’s should be illegal to have as pets in the United States. In California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming finger monkeys are illegal since 2012. First, I think the monkey’s should illegal to keep as any kind of private ownership because finger monkeys can be very aggressive and scary. They can do this because they have very sharp teeth that they could bite thing or people. These monkeys could seriously damage your house.
Not just any birds, but certain parrots to be exact. Many people have witnessed a parrot imitating what their owners say. While it is usually comical phrases, it probably is not a form of superior linguistics. I would argue that while animals such as primates actually and intentionally learn human language but cannot speak it, parrots and birds of the sort can speak human language but do not learn it. They simply imitate the sounds that they have heard.
Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a first bunny that became a police officer and a small town girl with a history of big dreams, starts her career in Zootopia. Nobody takes her seriously because...well, she 's a goddamn bunny! And weighs 2 pounds or something. Can you imagine her shooting from a gun? The recoil would catapult her into the stratosphere!
Chimpanzee vs. Baboons Have you ever wondered which primates roam around in the wilderness? Well two of the most common animals are chimpanzees and baboons. These animals are very alike but they are also very different. Chimpanzees and baboons look nothing alike, so they don 't have any common traits. The chimps(chimpanzee)have a thick set body while the baboons have a strong torso.
What do you know about Vodou? Your first thoughts are probably voodoo dolls, zombies, and witches with semi-racist accents, but little of that actually represents Vodou. First and foremost, Vodou is not black magic; “Voodoo Dolls” are a Hollywood invention made to sell movie tickets. Vodou is, in fact, a syncretic religion combining aspects of Roman Catholicism, West African Vodun, and a little bit of Native American spirituality. The means by which this synthesis arose is actually quite amazing.
While talking to Macbeth on the realness of the prophecies he says, “But ’tis strange. / And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, / The instruments of darkness tell us truths, / Win us with honest trifles, to betray ’s / In deepest consequence.” Banquo believes that the witches are trying to trick both of them into their own destruction and he is absolutely correct. For all he knows, these “witches” could be anyone. Banquo doesn’t trust the witches but goes along with what Macbeth says. After seeing Macbeth takes the place as Thane of Cawdor, his thoughts about the situation had changed.
The evil witches on these series and even on Harry Potter like Bellatrix Lestrange, the Wicked Queen of Snow White etc. adheres to certain norms of beauty, including the use of make-up and high heels, on the other hand she deviates from the most important rule for women: she refuses to be contained within the roles assigned to her within patriarchy. She refuses the role of the mother and refuses the male power over herself. Magic becomes a transgressive power, a protective magic which will disrupt patriarchal norms and free the women from societal expectations, which works on both the good and bad witch. Diane Purkiss explains witchcraft today, “its insistence on an identity grounded in the maternal body” (34).
One reason this may be, has to do with their evil fortune for Macbeth. They left Macbeth with a riddle which then lead him to “profound” actions. Another note about the witches is that Shakespeare had created a scene of them doing real magic. This is what people think had caused real witches to place a curse on the play. The witches were offended (“Supernatural”).
