“The major task of the twentieth century will be to explore the unconscious, to investigate the subsoil of the mind” (Henri Bergson). During the twentieth century, the world wars were playing out so one can see why authors would choose to focus on celestial settings since they provided the much needed escape from their violence-stricken lives.

Movie review of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Everyone has been daydreamed about things like be a hero, superman, vampire etc, but who really thinks about what daydreaming is, what daydreaming effects？I never think that kind of questions either, until I watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

The actors performance is really verisimilitude, which brings me in these characters spontaneously, experience an ordinary daydreamer’s mediocre life. I really appreciate the acting skill of Ben Stiller, (who directs the movie and plays the role of Walter Mitty). He portrays a ordinary person that be bullied by the superior and gets laughed at by others.

Hercules does this in many ways like when he tries to do what he can to defeat each monster that comes in his path. With this, everyone can see that the movie portrays Hercules as a seeker.
