My favorite movie is Marvel 's Ant-Man. I really love this movie because of the excitement and humor that it has. It has a thrilling plot which orbits around a reformed thief named Scott Lang. Scott does everything he can after he is let out of prison to be able to see his daughter. In the hardship, one of his talkative friends give him some good news about something precious hidden in an old man 's house.
Scout notices Cunningham and starts to talk about how she knows his son, and how he’s a pretty neat kid. This apparently awakens Cunningham to a sense of his own consciousness, and he leads the mob away. There are many ways you could look at this situation, but I believe that because Scout spoke about Cunningham’s son, Cunningham realized he wouldn’t want his son to be doing this. In that moment you can see the human in Cunningham, and the desire to be a good example to his son. Even though he is poor, he doesn’t carry the same abusive traits that Ewell has, but strives in his own way to become more of an example like Atticus.
“We began going out and giving talks, much like this one, but with lots and lots of data.” After she had spent several years focusing on research and statistics, Marquardt became inspired to create her own stories that would allow young adults to be able to relate to an undocumented immigrants, especially through love stories. In “Dreams Comes True,” the undocumented girl falls in love with a boy, who is a white-privileged United States citizen. However, when the boy realizes that the world is not as approving of undocumented immigrants, his love for the girl becomes more difficult, like your modern day of “Romeo and Juliet,” but not as drastic. “I wrote this book, and my second book which is coming out in January, to give readers the opportunity to experience the story of one, undocumented girl and the boy who loves her and to experience that intimately, just to live inside of it for awhile and to know it in a different way,” said Marquardt.
One of the most recognizable moments was when she finally met the neighborhood mystery man, Boo Radley. When she saw him the night he saved her life, she started to see the world in his eyes. She saw the way their neighborhood might have looked from Boo’s point of view and finally understood why he had done the things he did. She also came to a deeper understanding of Boo when they were walking down the street together, saying,“She would see Arthur Radley escorting me down the sidewalk as any gentlemen would do.” (Lee, 373)
Ups and downs can either make or break us and Liesel shows excellent resilience, despite her community being overcome by bombs in the end of the novel. Her love for words has saved her numerous times, especially of that in the bombing of the town of Molching, and influenced her to be brave in times of distress. Novels, either fantasy, fact or fiction, can encourage us to become stronger in areas where we lack strength and sometimes influence our motives. In the novel, it tells us that not only were words Liesel’s finest friend, but were Hitler’s greatest weapon to succeed in his overtaking of Germany. It is stated in the book that if Adolf Hitler could not move a nation with weapons and slogans, he would persuade them with his vocabulary and speeches.

I wonder what Lennie would’ve said if Slim gave a compliment similar to this, to him. Afterwards, he told me he found it funny that Lennie and me are together. Usually I get nervous or angry when people bring up this topic, like the boss of the ranch, but Slim someone managed to turn that negative emotion in a good one and I began telling him about Aunt Clara. I even told him about the pranks, like when I told Lennie to jump in the Sacramento River, even though he can’t swim at all.
