In Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, the fight for control of Middle Earth’s future reached its final confrontation. Hobbits Frodo and Sam finally reach the city of Mordor in their quest to obliterate “one ring”. Aragorn is leading the forces of good against the evil forces of Sauron at Minas Tirith. In Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, there are many literary archetypes that can be seen and interpreted throughout the movie. Gollum can be seen as the trickster, Gandalf as the magician, and the Lord of the Nazgul as the witch, just to name a few.
The Hobbit is an example of that. The book, the Hobbit, is a book by J. R. R Tolkien and was adapted as a movie trilogy by Peter Jackson. The scene that is being analyzed is in the first of the three movies, “An Unexpected Journey”. It is about Bilbo, a carefree Hobbit, who gets taken on an adventure with 13 other dwarves and wizard to reclaim their lost gold. In this fantasy world, there are many dangers, such as trolls and goblins,
Though he did not know it at the time, Bilbo was in for the adventure of a lifetime. The wizard revealed himself to be Gandalf the Gray a well-known, kind, yet mysterious man. The wizard was trying to help the dwarves, Thorin and his thirteen companions, to reclaim their families’ homeland and gold from an awful dragon named Smaug. Gandalf was in the Shire to seek out the sneaky expertise of a hobbit, for they needed a burglar. Bilbo was indecisive at first, but in the
In the first few chapters of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain, he presents Hank Morgan, who gets hit in the head with a crowbar during a quarrel. He, then, awakens in King Arthur's Court in the sixth century. Getting others to believe he is a magician like the other magician Merlin, he takes the title “The Boss.” He also becomes the right-hand man of King Arthur, all when he was originally going to be burned at the stake. While Hank Morgan works out of foolishness, modernization, and supernaturalism, the theme of the story is battling with superstitions. Firstly, at the beginning of the story, Hank Morgan comes up with an idea of fooling the people that he's a magician.
Some movies are based on novels and ancient stories but as for the movie Beowulf, it’s based on a Poem. The poem Beowulf is an about a person who is stronger than any human and kills monster and is people’s hero. This poem was from eight centuries and was not written down until tenth-twelfth century. In the Beowulf, a hero of the Geats comes to help king Hrothgar, Danes king, whose hall is being attack by a powerful monster known as Grendel. Although, there were similarities and differences between the poem and the movie about Grendel’s mother, Beowulf and the Dragon.
Question 2: The role of monsters in the poem is to shape and drive its plot. Monsters are defined as outsiders or those who represent evil intentions in the Anglo-Saxon culture and not necessarily otherworld creatures. In the case of Grendel, the “grim demon” who attacks Heorot, is a descendant of Cain, who had been banished by God and an outcast from humanity, therefore, a mixture between human and monster. Grendel’s character depicts the opposite of Beowulf, a warrior. By fighting, and ultimately defeating both Grendel and his mother, Beowulf proves himself to be courageous and thus promoted to lord and king and uniting the Danes and the Geats.
He knows that the ring is going to bring great danger to Shire since his Uncle, Bilbo Baggins had put on the ring. Frodo knows this because Gandalf the Grey told him that whenever someone puts on the ring, the Ringwraiths from Sauron are drawn to the rings power. Frodo shows great determination when he is put in charge of bringing the ring out of Shire and to Bree where Gandalf would take care of it from there. Frodo knows he is not exactly qualified for the job but he also knows that the fate of Middle Earth relies on him. He sacrifices his life to get rid of the ring, even though he knows that he could possibly die from the Ringwraiths.
He picks up the key to the troll 's secret cave, thereby providing himself with a sword from the safe inside the cave. In chapter five Bilbo finds the ring of invisibility and outsmarts Gollum while challenging each other with riddles. It is important to note that Bilbo resists the impulse to kill Gollum in chapter five because he thinks it would be unfair as Gollum is unarmed, while Bilbo is invisible and armed. Bilbo is depicted as not only clever, but ethical. This is reflected in the dwarves and Gandalf’s growing respect for him in chapter six.
Jack is a skeleton, so he can not be Santa. Skeletons are made for Halloween not Christmas. Jack does try to be Santa but he is a skeleton. This essay has stated some facts why Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie. When Jack tries to be Santa he is still a skeleton.
As a result, the monster asks “was man, indeed, at once so powerful, so virtuous, and magnificent, yet so vicious and base? He appeared at one time a mere scion of the evil principle, and at another as all that can be conceived of noble and godlike.” (pg 84) Clearly, the monster is reflecting on man's ambivalent nature when it comes to choosing between good and evil. This shows how the creature matures through the struggles and has come to realize that the humans are not always right. Undoubtedly, the author uses the unique and deep descriptions to convey the message of destitution to the
