“The Little Rascals” film is a comedy that was released on August 5th ,1994 by Universal Pictures and produced by Amblin Entertainment. The Little Rascals is a more modified version of the “Our Gang” short film that was written by Hal Roach. It consisted of a number of well known actors such as: Raven-Symone, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Whoopi Goldberg. Although the movies can be seen as a comedy for children and adults, it also has some subliminal messages. Being a young woman in America it is quite hard for me to accept the depiction of the women’s role that is being used throughout the film.
Apparently, the film “has commitment issues in its desire to be outrages comedy and tender family” (Rechtshaffen) with having both types of entertainment featured in the movie its throws in a couple twist.

The making of movies, or the concept of it, has been around since the beginning of the 18th century. The lens of the camera has captured some of the most beautiful things, but also the most prejudice. Stereotypes of races, ethnicities, and gender have always been around but were widely considered acceptable in the films of that era. Almost as long as there have been people filming, there have been people fighting for equality to be presented on the big screen. Danez Smith is one of these modern fighters in his free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood.” As Smith uses his words to create a poetic trailer for this stereotype-free movie, he tells the story of a young African American boy.
Monty Python’s Flying Circus came onto English television screens in the late 1960s. This comedic sketch show was notorious for its quick wit, suggestiveness, and satirical representations of everyday British life (Duguid, n.d.). Monty Python’s Flying Circus brought about a new type of media text to English culture; the satirical, yet biting type of surreal comedy show that appealed to the English middle class. The popularity of Monty Python’s Flying Circus (and later installments by the group) relied on the audience’s sophisticated knowledge; they depended on the fact that they knew their audience knew about the dullness of a 9 to 5 job and other aspects of popular culture to understand their jokes. Those without the cultural capital to fully understand the sketches of Monty Python would probably
Erma Bombeck, an American comedian and author of the 1960s, once acknowledged, "There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt." Laughter was once claimed to be the best medicine; however, millennials seem to be testing this boundary Bombeck mentions as they take humor to higher levels that may be causing more harm than good. Humor 's role in society has evolved over the years, millennials using it as a means to manipulate emotions, distancing people, while it once linked people together and provided a source of collective entertainment. For generations past, humor was a uniting factor; but, presently, humor seems to be a dangerous, divisive factor with bigger, more serious implications for the outlook of the generation. Many categorize millennial humor, mainly what is circulated on social media, as purely absurd and meaningless.
I am Clare Chen, the director of YuMe Production. I am sending this letter to you because I would like to ask your permission to reproduce one of your fabulous essays, “I’m Jumping Off the Bridge,” into a movie production. It is an undeniable fact that many film companies have ruined literature through their so-called “Hollywood-style”, or in other words, methods of making the film profitable and appealing to the public. However, there are also plenty of successful movies that present the stories well and also create powerful impacts on their audience. Please take a moment and think about a movie, or a short film, that has changed your point of view on any subject.
Television was always an important piece of American.It has existed for about seven decades.But as the television industry has grown, the idea of TV has disintegrated. These days the idea of TV has degenerated into pointless reality TV. Reality TV portrays a certain scenario and depicts the idea of what a certain character should do following that. The impact, however, is usually negative to younger audiences. Reality TV is indulgent and candid, it is overflowing with artificial life.
The television show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is meant to bring its viewers into a pretentious, unrealistic world accredited by an unlimited amount of fame and money. Most viewers watch to be entertained by a lifestyle that they would never be able to have, which is how poet, Lewis Carroll, felt about the lifestyle of the Victorian era. While the people surrounding him were attached to the societal standards of men and women, Carroll felt that creativity was a more important objective in life. Carroll was able to find inspiration to write his famous poem, “Jabberwocky”, through his love for logic, the lifestyle of the Victorian era, and his strong relationships with young children. Carroll had a creative early childhood.
From the new TV show Agent Carter and the newest superhero movie Black Panther to the soon to be released movie Love, Simon, Hollywood has made great advancements in their diversity; bringing in all different races and beliefs into their movies letting every culture have their share of representation. Both in front and behind the camera Hollywood had struggled with the constant remarks journalist have made about the lack of diversity in films. Many people were angry for not having equal opportunities on TV. However, they have made great efforts to put forward equal amounts of movies with female and African-American leads as white male leads. But they did not stop with race and gender, they have also begun making movies starring gays and lesbians.
Evolution of Family Sitcoms “Blood is thicker than water.” A saying commonly heralded by family members in order to reaffirm the importance of family unity. These words spoke loud to the entertainment industry as they were trying to create new content for television. Situational comedies were quite popular, but there was a lack of relatability to families. The most logical step was to combine the two. Since then, the family sitcom has become the yearly ritual for television pilots.
There are always rumors that Sister Wives and other reality shows are fake, but now a family member is speaking out and saying that they faked things for the show and ratings. The show Sister Wives had done well, so if this is true it obviously worked for them. Radar Online is now sharing what a family member of the Brown family from Sister Wives had to say about it. Christine 's aunt, Kristyn Decker, is now speaking out and sharing that one of the biggest story lines may have been all for drama. She thinks that they just faked it to get ratings for Sister Wives.
Hollywood has a long and infamous reputation for taking books of historical merit and adapting them in a way that is popular among the mass public. Directors from Hollywood are guilty of pleasing the audience so that the historical accuracy becomes another victim of the American Movie Market. While the movie “A Knight’s Tale” gives movie watchers what they want in terms of comedy and romance, it ignores the change from medieval dialogue to modern dialogue, the dress of women, and social norms of the time period to give the audience a biased view of history. Although “A Knight’s Tale” does not give the audience an exact year that the event happen based on historical context it would be safe to assume the plot took place in the later part of the 14th century, or towards the first half of the Hundred Year War between England and France. (Badders) In “A Knight’s Tale” the characters will one minute use words common to the typical medieval language such as “nay” or
In a similar vein, consider that the ABC network recently greenlit a sitcom for 2015 called Fresh Off the Boat, based on the irreverent memoir of celebrity restaurateur, chef, and television personality Eddie Huang. As Huang was aware when he wrote his book, “fresh off the boat” or “FOB” has long been used by native-born Americans to insult new immigrants who seem crudely unassimilated. But among some Asian Americans, it’s also used sarcastically, even playfully. So Huang now reclaims “FOB” to make light of the way it has been used. That nuance may be lost on some who will watch the sitcom.
