Beowulf the heroic poem and movie were both about a warrior. The warrior name was Beowulf, a strong and brave man, who killed demonic things. During the film and text he goes to a city to kill a demon named Grendel not knowing the creature that created him is still living; Grendel’s mother comes back for revenge. In the text Beowulf kills her, but in the movie it is very different; Beowulf and Grendel’s mother create something very evil and stronger than Grendel. The city starts to feel safe again not knowing another demon is among them.
The sleeping dragon was awoken by a slave who stole a beautiful cup because he was trying to repay his debt of freedom. Valor is shown through the fighting that Beowulf and the dragon do. This causes destruction and chaos throughout the whole town. This scene in the book greatly shows the valor of Beowulf. Beowulf fights the dragon so that the people he rules can be safe and he is willing to risk his life.
Gandalf explains how they would have to pass through many complications to reach this dragon, and one complication takes place in the chapter “Riddles in the Dark” when Bilbo had to get through the goblin cave without the help of Gandalf or the dwarves. As he tries to find his way out, he ran into an unusual creature named Gollum who challenges him to a riddle game, and if Gollum wins the game, he has the privilege to eat Bilbo, but if Bilbo wins then Gollum has to show Bilbo the way out. Gollum decides to try and kill Bilbo by using a magic ring that will make him invisible, but little did he know that Bilbo actually has the ring thanks to luck. In 2012, Peter Jackson remade this chapter, making many changes, into a scene in the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Two major changes that were made in the movie was the way Gollum was portrayed (making him more relatable), and the way Bilbo escaped the from the goblin's cave.
The two works used in this essay are the story of Beowulf, by Seamus Heaney, and the movie of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie. Some things that appear in the King Arthur movie are included due to Hollywood effects that are not mentioned in the real story of King Arthur. Other than that, most of the information in the movie contains the same information as the mythical story. The two heros in both works play major roles in the storyline and have a huge effect on many different things that happen throughout the plot. Two major things that these two are remember for are their heroic acts and that they were both kings.

The first part of the hero quest was when Beowulf fought the demonic monster known as Grendel. Beowulf hears about Grendel and accepts the challenge to defeat him. He spends the evening in the mead hall awaiting the arrival of Grendel. When Grendel appears, he attempts to snatch Beowulf; he fails. Beowulf grabs Grendel by his arm with his bare hands and rips off the monster’s arm with ease.
When I learned about chiaroscuro and how to use it, I realized how important it was to notice where the light hits in certain objects and how when you change where the lighting is placed the whole setting could change. Lighting in a setting for a film is one of the most important factors. If it is during nighttime, a filmmaker wants to have the perfect light for it to be visible yet still look dark; or if it is daytime or indoors the light needs to be set to avoid too much clarity. In addition, the emotions transmitted by the scene or even the film as a whole might depend on the light used. If it is a refreshing, comedic scene then a filmmaker seeks to use lighter settings than if it is a dramatic one.
Beowulf shows his superhuman strength as he battled Grendel. He constantly showed high-standard behavior; admirable of many of the men during their time period. Beowulf constantly deals with external battled with demons and the pressure of those surrounding him; always putting other’s needs before his own. Beowulf slayed the dragon along with Wiglaf; the treasure was stolen in the textbook and in the movie it was found. Grendel attacks the Danes while they were sleeping; in the movie they were all in the middle of celebrating.
Alfred Hitchcock used various symbols throughout the film Psycho to allow the viewer to get an insight of what is happening in the film. Symbolism is an exceptional way to entice the viewer as it creates suspense and makes it better to understand the film. Alfred uses paintings as a symbol, which can be seen in multiple scenes, to symbolize a certain character in the film to the painting and foreshadow events in the film. This allows the viewer to get more detail on the character’s personality and what is about to happen. In the first picture, we can see Norman Bates is looking at a painting known as Susannah and The Elders.
