In this narrative, two movies, Blade Runner (1982) and Brave New World (1980) are analyzed on their postmodernist aspects. Both are dystopic films that predict humanity’s future from the circumstantial fears present on their times. The movie Blade Runner by Ridley Scott was a dystopian film set in the city of Los Angeles in 2019 and was actually derived from the book of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Mr. Phillip Dick. In the film, nuclear pollution and atomic waste aftermath pushed the citizens to go off world. Individuals are thought to be frail and excessively poor, making it impossible to bear the cost of transport.
None of them look inhabited or like an actual home; the empty rooms have no soul whatsoever and rather appear like museums, rooms that are for rent, or settings of a real estate commercial. In addition, this comparison is only one of the numerous images that exemplify the specific and precise use of colour in American Beauty, Revolutionry Road, and Shame. Sam Mendes and Steve McQueen did an astonishing job (together with the cinematographers Conrad Hall, Roger Deakings, and Sean Bobbit) by conveying meaning through form and at the same time made these films a real treat for the
Robert E. Morsberger in his article “Shakespeare and Science Fiction” says “Viewers of MGM’s 1956 motion picture Forbidden Planet probably did not recognize that beneath all the trappings of futuristic science fiction, much of the basic plot comes from Shakespeare’s early Seventeenth- Century play The Tempest”(Morsberger, 161). The Scene of the daughters having a nightmare of the crews in trouble, there are many more similar scenes that you can see if you look carefully. The article “Shakespeare in Outer Space” mentions a quote from Kenneth Rothwell which points out that “Part of watching this film (Forbidden Planet) lies in picking up all the connections within The Tempest (Shakespeare in Outer Space). The Tempest and the Forbidden Planet action scenes both being in the same way. A crew ship lands on a stranded island, but in The Tempest the crew is “Invited” or Prospero led them to this island, but in Forbidden Planet Morbius wants the crew to leave.
The Wizard of Oz “There is no place like home” is the memorable quote from the movie Wizard of Oz. The catchy quote is certainly not the only thing we can learn from analyzing this movie. The Wizard of Oz is very real. Many fictional scenes reflect lessons that are relevant to real life. When Dorothy is blown out from her home town Kansas and into Oz, the fade color in Kansas changes to multicolor in Oz.
Jekyll does not make the potion to take away all evil away from himself. He created a potion that would allow himself to express his feelings without feeling guilt and facing any consequences effecting his respectable self. Dr. Jekyll in the novella is a respected professor and well known around the town. While Hyde on the other hand is almost the complete opposite. Hyde seems to appear much younger than Jekyll also.
This non-place concept is included in the movie. In both, New Greenwich and the ghetto, have no purpose of serving as anthropological place. In New Greenwich, everywhere looks the same as they are all bland and colorless. For example, the hotel room Will stays, the casino he encounters Sylvia’s father, or Sylvia’s house; they are strongly identical to each other, there is no sense of belonging, there is no difference between temporary place such as hotel and permanent place such as home. In the ghetto, everywhere is commercial place as money, or in this place time, can be taken everywhere so people have no sense of security to any places.
In the Wizard of Oz, the straw man did not have a brain, and there was nothing substantial in him. A scarecrow, other than the facade of straw on the outside, has nothing of worth on the inside, and with one blow can be dismembered. Similarly, a straw man argument has nothing backing it up, and no evidence or information making the argument strong. It is just one big exaggeration. According to one website, "You put forth a straw man because you know it will be easy for you to knock down
Grilo claims that the futuristic setting is so subtle that the reader does not even notice the progression of things that are inevitable, like coffee only being available to the uber rich, like Roarke, and the reversal of some widely accepted laws, like gun control, which has been completely banned unless licensed for display purposes, and prostitution, which is now a legally accepted occupation. The other big difference is that everything is electronic and travel has advanced to include flying vehicles and visiting other planets. (Grilo 3) These are all things that the reader comes upon with no introduction and I feel that I was left piecing things together. I can handle the way Eve talks to her computer instead of typing or using a mouse, but when she tells her car where to go and it just takes off, up and over the car in front her, or when she goes from one side of the country to the other in less than one hour instead of six hours, I definitely had to do a double take. Now, to be fair, we could say that the trip into the future was too subtle as it did take me half the book to pin down exactly what had
The purpose of the clowns is to display how mindless television can be, and society as a whole is just as mindless in this novel, not caring for anyone but themselves. The viewers give no expressive thinking while watching the mindless violence through their TV sets, and therefore don’t pay any considerable thought to why they are watching what they are and to such a great
Well, in my research I had found out that according to Rebecca Dudczak the one reason was that Pometheus experiences consequences from power and enlightenment,(Dudczak) just as Victor Frankenstein does in the novel. Experiencing consequesnes is the first reason Frankenstein is considered The Modern Prometheus. The inquiry for power and enlightenment and not being precautious of what could happen if you temper with the laws of nature. The consequences in Frankenstein can be compared with the original story Prometheus because there is an abundance of tragedy in this story and it seems to repeat itself as it does in Prometheus. The monster continues to strangle and kill multiple people and the bird continues to attack and eat the liver of prometheus.
Science fiction is fascinating because it allows the reader to go on journeys into other worlds. These worlds can be unique and astonishing. Many are very different from one another. For example, Nethergrave and A Sound Of Thunder contrast each other greatly. Nethergrave begins in the real world; the one we are familiar with.
The complexities of the character’s costumes went way beyond what they had done in the past (13). Robertson states “The hero characters are always real – there are no digital duo-roles for the live-action puppets that star in the film.” (13). This means that while some of the background characters may have been computer generated, the main characters
Cool to see Donald Sumpter now he’s appeared as Rassilon in Hell Bent, and also twice in the classic show. He’s the archetypal evil scientist (who dresses like a wizard?) so nothing special. No Luke to be seen, along with K9 and Mr Smith. Rani and Clyde have become such a duo recently, with bad comic moments and awkward teenage hugs to boot.
You can get creative without using an overabundance of decorations. Make sure you don 't leave a drawer open that you 'll trip over though. Tiny Figurines Another way to celebrate the holiday without angering your boss is to bring in small figurines like tiny vampires or a little witch. You could bring in iconic, scary movie monsters like Freddie Kruger or Jason too. Spooky House Surround Instead of having distracting decorations all over the cubicle, you can make your own haunted house with an opening in the middle large enough for your computer monitor.
Classics are known as the objects which endure the passages of time, only to passed on again and again while encompassing continuance and a sense of adventure. The War Of the Worlds by H.G. Wells was considered to be the “Father” of the science fiction genre and apply the use of curiosity to employ his readers to discover more about the otherworldly species who have invaded the diverse universe this author has created. Throughout this classic novel you follow an undefined protagonist who must endure the chaos the aliens of Mars had brought upon the unsuspecting world. This novel definitely exceeds the qualifications for the privilege of being considered a Classic with an intellectual protagonist, detailed use of metaphors and foreshadowing
