The term “Milagro” in the movie entitled “Milagro Beanfield War” is a Spanish word which means “miracle”. Miracle is such an interesting word which can convey different meaning to us. Some people do not believe in miracle as they feel that miracles are acts beyond the nature of laws, but some people do. Nevertheless, in this movie, miracle plays a vital role in helping the poverty-stricken Hispanic community in Mexico to fight against the aristocratic developer. The developer thought they’ll be able to develop the lands without much protest from the community due to its jurisdiction of the local water rights.
In the film, Joe is a main character who is curious about the human world. During the whole film, Joe is often caught abusing his powers. At first, he killed off an average man in a coffee shop, so he could take his body and explore the human world. Because he killed someone before their time is up, he is misusing his powers for himself (Brest). Adding on, Death in this context tends to remind Bill Parish that he could kill him at any time.
He doesn’t know who he is or where he belongs which causes Joe to be wandering around most his life. He has a rough time with relationships with people because society isolates him because of his violent ways. His relationship with Miss Burden seems like he would change, but he only ends up disappointing her and causes her to destroy herself. Joe Christmas also has a violented when he dies, and nothing is resolved in his life. Joe represents the old South and how if it doesn’t change it will die.
In Of Mice and Men, George has lots of courage when shooting Lennie. Lennie was his lifelong friend and he had to accept that he would continue to suffer on the earth and knew that his innocence would always get the better of him. His innocence ultimately overpowers his physical strength and George knew that he would not be able to survive in the world, as displayed with the innocent puppy that ends up being killed by Lennie. George and Slim are very upset in the end because no one could really understand Lennie. George always had to explain and he had the courage to do so.
Regardless, when night falls, Crusoe seeks out the three prisoners, who initially regard him as an angel. As he learns that they were mutinied against, Crusoe takes advantage of the situation as he has before, laying out conditions for the former-captain before he offers his help. Defoe explains the first condition as “while you stay on this island with me, you will not pretend to any authority here; and if I put arms into your hands, you will upon all occasions give them up to me […] and in the mean time be govern’d by my orders” (p. 201). Although reasonable in his want to preserve the life he has made on the island, Crusoe nonetheless demonstrates his own cowardice by taking advantage of prisoners, who are bound and unable to take any choice, forced through circumstance to take on his help, even if it means they become Crusoe’s so-called subjects. Once more, I do not believe this demonstrates heroism in Crusoe, as he does not selflessly act to help the three prisoners.
The movie starts with Eriksson being trapped into a VC tunnel and saved by Meserve. In reality, however, Meserve never rescued Eriksson. The adaptation is understandable, as it reveals the inequality of their relations. Eriksson holds a lower rank and owes Meserve a favour, which dramatizes the later scenes in which Meserve goes mad at Eriksson when finding him trying to return the girl to her village, and Captain Hill tells Eriksson not to ruin the life of Meserve who has once rescued him. This scene further shows that Meserve, who cares for his comrades, is not a merciless person, forming a great contrast with his inhumane treatment of the girl.
Often times people always have hopes, dreams and people that are special to them but at times when problems arise with these certain things, they have to let go of them. In Mice of Men, when George is not able to save up enough money to buy a farm and take care of Lennie at the same time. In chapter 6, George had to shoot Lennie because he realized that Lennie wouldn’t be able to tend the rabbits like he wanted to after Lennie made another mistake. He had just killed Curley’s wife on accident because he was just trying to pet her hair.Lennie was always getting into trouble, making it hard to settle down somewhere on a farm. George’s dream was too much for him to exceed at once and he had to let go of Lennie, even Slim knew it.
He discusses the idea that, “The harm such men do is not malicious; it is a product of their limited awareness,”(36). Joe’s involvement with the pilots deaths was not intentional and therefore cannot be considered premeditated. Because of Joe’s lack of education, he is unable to understand the reality of how serious this situation is. Joe’s inability to grasp the idea of death and how he caused it is unnerving. Through his uneducated eyes, he believes that he is not guilty because he admits to not having the education to correctly do the job.
In order to try to see Romeo again, and avoid marrying County Paris, a match that her parents set up because they didn’t know about Romeo, Juliet decided to fake her death. She figured that if everybody thought she was dead, then she would be taken to a tomb, and Romeo could meet her there. Romeo was not notified of Juliet faking her death, so when he saw Juliet lying dead at her grave, he was extremely upset. Romeo said that “ I still will stay with thee, And never from this palace of dim night Depart again(Act 5 Scene 3 lines 115-117).” Romeo killed himself, because he was in too much of a rush to wait for Juliet to wake up. Had he actually stayed with Juliet, he would have seen that she was still alive.
You may believe the heroism is something found in distant conflicts or stories of hardship that come to a mythical character, perhaps Hercules of Greek mythology or the soldiers of World War 2. To the surprise of many, however, heroism takes place not just in these epic tales of extreme gore and violence, but instead in your hometown. This is exactly the situation the town of Salem, Massachusetts found itself in as they fell into peril. As illustrated in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, the fear of witchcraft and petty hatred towards others lead to the downfall of innocent lives. Throughout the destruction of the town’s civil order, certain characters went against the flow that they had been peer pressured into and instead decided to act heroically
