As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.
The movie Shrek is a popular classic in the animation genre of film. A big reason for it becoming a classic is its theme. Shrek is an ogre who is constantly feared and looked down in society. His looks make people want to kill him, which makes Shrek isolate himself from in his swamp. So what exactly is the theme of the story? Well, Shrek was always judged by society because he’s simply an ogre. Him wanting to marry the human version Fiona would be looked down upon since he’s an ogre and she’s a human. Judgment is huge part of the society Shrek lives in. This judgement is similar to how the Puritans reacted when they encountered an outsider or someone who’s different. The Puritans were a group of Protestants who wanted to purify their church.

Shrek is a film written in 2001, and was the first film of its kind to subvert traditional fairy tale conventions. Shrek uses fairy tale conventions to tell its story and above all, for comedic effect. However, these conventions are all reversed, as the King is a main villain, and the “evil” ogre is the hero.
The movie Shrek shows exaggeration through the characters of Shrek and Fiona. Shrek exemplifies exaggeration by pulling a large amount of earwax out of his ear to create a candle. The amount of earwax pulled from Shrek’s ear is abnormal to the amount of wax from a regular human. Shrek also takes a frog and turns it into a balloon for Fiona, and Fiona also picks up a snake and turns it into a balloon. Another example of exaggeration is when Fiona begins to sing with a bird and tries to sing louder than it. They continue competing to see who can sing the highest and overpower the other one. Suddenly, the bird blows up, and his feathers fly everywhere, which leaves Fiona as the winner.
In all, the musical was done wonderfully. The only problem I noticed was the music was too loud, and the characters had to really talk loud to be heard. All of the characters remembered their lines, and there weren 't major problems. I immediately grew a relationship with Man in Chair and Janet van de Graaff due to their excellent choices they made. I would definitely go watch this musical
I truly thought that this performance was incredible. My grandpa(he went and watched the musical with me) thought the performance was too good to be a high school play. I would’ve agreed with him except I already knew how talented our performers are. Besides the amazing talent, another incredible thing stood out to me. The set was absolutely amazing.
The people that share my hobby, that I spend all my waking minutes with, are the most generous, talented, intelligent, and loving people that you could imagine. These people have helped me grow into who I am as a person now, and are genuine people that I know I will maintain lifelong relationships with. The band that I willingly devote every spare minute of my free time to has come so far, and I have had the honor of experiencing extreme milestones in the path of success for this school. In my first year, we traveled to Bands of America Grand Nationals in Indianapolis for the first time in Round Rock Dragon Band history, and placed fourth out of nearly ninety bands.
In Beowulf, there is a couple of good examples of imagery. Whether it is in the battles that Beowulf goes through, in just the description of scenes, or in his farewell. When he said farewell to his followers in beowulf's last battle before he goes to fight against the dragon in the cave where the dragon was awaken when protecting the treasures. An example of imagery is Beowulf is “I swam/ in the blackness of night, hunting monsters/ out of the ocean, and killing them one/ By one.” In this part of beowulf i imagine the heroic beowulf swimming in darkness fighting with monsters that he hunted out of the ocean killing them each one by one.
Imagery helps us understand the actions or feeling in something In the story where they say “I felt melted gum and chips of broken beer bottles on my lips and cheek. ”(Line 5) This shows how one side of the train tracks has better stuff and more luxuries and they are kinda spoiled so they don’t care about when they litter They also say in the story that “he slid to the ground, like a rotten banana squeezed out of its peeling”(Line 7) This lets you imagine a better look of what is happening because just like a rotten banana it is bruised and gooey Imagery is something that is used to express a deeper meaning or feeling based on words or feelings.
Discuss Shakespeare 's Use of Imagery in Othello to Reveal Character A lack of empathy makes for a true villain. In Shakespeare’s tragic play Othello, the nature of Iago’s character is revealed through the use of animal, plant, and devil imagery. Iago is revealed to view others as less than him, manipulating them with a lack of conscience, and having a desire for the destruction of others.
Before the start of this class, I overused common imagery such as “shine bright like a diamond” to try to convey my feelings. Writing with clichéd imagery dilutes the reader’s attachment to the story because emotions are absent. In this class, I have learned that I have to reflect on my true feelings and emotions before writing. Hopefully allows my readers to feel what I once felt. My favorite imagery that I have written in this class was the spider web in the essay about my grandfather.
