ABOUT MARY KOM Kom was born in Churachandpur district of rural Manipur in eastern India. She came from a poor family. Her parents named her Chungenijang. Kom kept her interest in boxing a secret from her father, himself an ex-wrestler, as he was concerned that boxing would hurt Kom's face and spoil her chances of marriage. However, he learnt of it when Kom's photo appeared in a newspaper after she won the state boxing championship in 2000.
The film made me think about how grateful I should be that my parent are like Moana and how they want the best for me. The work changed my view of the world and myself because it is dangerous in the world and I should dream big like Moana. Also the filmmaker was trying to give the idea that a person can conquer anything that society throws at them. In addition, that you should always strive to be different. Some symbols in the movie are Maui’s tattoos, his tattoos represent everything he has did in his life.
When Han came to the school, he wasn't used to a class monitor bossing everyone around, and shortly after coming, he decided to tell the teacher about Om. To Han’s disappointment, the teacher did nothing but praise Om and commend him in keeping the classroom so orderly. Han knew that Om was just putting on a show for the teacher, but at that point Han figured it was time to give up. When Om impressed the teacher, Han just gave up and wasn't willing to endure and try again. If Han had kept trying, he probably would have gotten Om in trouble eventually.
He states that rather than believing they must solely prove their independence girls recognize that they can “have the girly dream of glass slippers and true love, these films say, as well as the womanly ideal of self-determination and independence” (Poniewozik 324). Poniewozik explains how a previous generation of women simply aspired to have the ability to do anything a man could. In this new generation, however, he states that choosing the fairytale ending does not debase a woman (Poniewozik 324). A quote from Marlo Thomas, a feminist author, included in the article says, “What women have tried to achieve for other women is choice in every step of their lives” (Poniewozik 324) Through including specific movies, such as Ella Enchanted and The Prince & Me, in which princesshood and feminism blend together to form empowered women who choose to be princesses, the author of this article begins gathering his support for the claim that girls have been affected by this recent transformation in the movie-making
The film also had great themes that set the framework for future movies such as Blade Runner, according to Kenneth Turan. Finally, I thought the acting was amazing, especially by Brigitte Helm. I do not know how any other actress could have portrayed Maria and the machine Maria any better. I liked the dramatic styles of the actors because it added to the drama of the plot. This movie did not have any glaring flaw and the attention to detail from the director, Fritz Lang, allowed the movie to be so great, such as how the workers who had been working walked slower than the fresh workers in the beginning of the film, as pointed out by Mordaunt Hall.
Since, I have an unconditional love for volleyball I took it upon myself to gather all the teams and have them warm up as a team. By the time they began drills, the varsity coach was rolling in to practice. A few minutes later the junior varsity coach would join us. We greeted each other, socialized a little about the girls, then she gave me “the okay” to coach the junior varsity team. The junior varsity girls insisted that I help them in practice, so I began with a pep talk to motivate and prepare them for
The protagonist Mima projects a very different self to the world of fans and the pop idol/film industry than the self she shows when she is alone in her room. This presents a sort of ambiguity surrounding her true wants and desires. Throughout the film, we cannot recognize whether she performs actions of her own volition or whether she has been forced onto a certain path by outside influences. She alternates between violently affirming that she wants to be an actress and admitting she only did the rape scene so as not to cause
An interesting departure in the film which can be seen is the practice of sacrifice of animals which by the devotees. This was not seen in the earlier devotional films. Scenes of possession by the power of the goddess is one such interesting departure. One central theme in most Tamil devotional films is that of women suffering, often at the times of an oppressive patriarchal family structure along with pregnancy and the difficulties of the birthing process. In Ammoru, the central character, Bhavani is inflicted with terrible torture and is nearly killed but the goddess appears at the right time and manages to save
Sophia came over to me before practise. “Hi sara Sophia said, it is so very hot out here”. “I kNow right, I am sweating through my swimsuit. Sophia, yes Sara, why do these kids keep tossing a volleyball into the air and call it volleyball”. “Because sayed Sophia, they are having fun with each other.
