The symbolism and allegorical features of the film are both extremely vague and contradictory, making any one interpretation difficult to justify and easy to disprove. When interpreting a work as an allegory, it is always worth paying some attention to the intent of the writers, and the scriptwriters of High Noon intended to write it as an allegory for blacklisting. The easiest way to see this interpretation is to see Sheriff Kane as a victim of blacklisting. His fruitless search for help in fighting Miller symbolizes how alone those brought in front of the House of Un-American Activities were. Their former friends would not help them,
Lopsang Sherpa is fiercely loyal to Fischer, almost to the exclusion of other climbers. When Fischer is lost on the summit, Lopsang 's search for him is not deterred, even by the deadly weather. Hall is similarly loyal to Hansen, refusing to leave Hansen at the summit. Hall 's loyalty to Hansen eventually results in his death—he could have left Hansen at the top and climbed down, but he does not even consider it. "But forty minutes later, Hall was still with Hansen atop the Hillary Step, going nowhere.

Also in the book you can see more character development. Even though the film was not exactly like the book the director did a great job, and this still is one of my favorite movies. Percy Jackson and the lightning thief was an incredible book and movie. Though the movie forgot a couple things it was still an amazing film. I would recommend both.
Conrad’s indifference and somewhat apathetic attitude, and his dark thoughts about his brother’s death are both presented without unnecessary dramatization. Ordinary People doesn’t offer too happy endings and in my opinion this was one of the things that made it feel realistic. Too many stories dealing with difficult issues tend to rush the dealing with the issues just to get a happy ending even if it’s this way completely unrealistic. This is where Ordinary People did well; in real life problems don’t solve themselves quickly and easily and all endings aren’t happy in every aspect. Life is not always sunshine and rainbows.
Disastrous Tragedy The book Into Thin Air, written by Jon Krakauer, emphasizes the struggles of men versus nature. It enlightens us about the great adventures of climbing Mount Everest and how it affected each individual within the various expeditions that were going to summit Everest. In his book, Krakauer goes into great detail regarding everything that was involved in the 1996 expedition. The different identities demonstrated to be costly towards all of the individuals that were involved within the 1996 expedition. Mount Everest calls to those sufficiently courageous to scale her unforgiving inclines, beckoning them to assert one of the world's elevated thrones if they only dare.

As a child you are told to dream big, however, an astronaut, a lion tamer or even an Everest expeditions are very dangerous ambitions to pursue. While growing up, Krakauer idolized professional climbers and aspired to defeat Mount Everest and become a
Through action packed scenes, a love interest, and fighting evil Nazis, Jones is able to find the Ark and protect it. The film is very well put together, but in an attempt to tell an exciting story, the realistic side of archaeology is lost. In the film Raiders of the Lost Ark, archaeology is skewed through action, and time, but the ending holds some truth. There are few scenes throughout the whole time that do not include some sort of action. Whether
This is one of the ways the two films are quite different; the former is grand and dramatic, like when Paul used an axe to break down Paula’s door to reach her; and the latter is more “realistic” in that we are expecting Ralph to show up again like Paul, but instead he just completely disappears in the film uneventfully. There is no closure to that plot line like we normally expect from a fictional story. The Legend of Paul and Paula feels more like a romantic loneliness, while Solo Sunny feels like a more general loneliness. In The Legend of Paul and Paula, Paula is shown to be have some happiness outside of her relationship with Paul; this is best shown when she is working in the store and starts singing, causing a crowd of people to sing with her. She also has children that she obviously cares for.
In the story “To the Top of Everest”, she may not have saved a life or made history, but somewhere in the world, though she may not be a hero to me, is a hero to someone else. Someone who is terrified of heights, or wants to one day climb Everest. In conclusion, they are both heroes to themselves or others in one way or another. And finally, in both stories, both characters witnessed multiple emotions. In “The Voyage”, Odysseus was the only person sailing.
