Some differences include how the bird in “Sympathy” mutilates himself in an effort to free himself while the bird in “Cage Bird” simply sings for his freedom. Another difference is the fact that we can infer that the bird in caged bird has been entrapped all his life whilst the bird in “Sympathy” has not (as he is not fearful of the outside). Overall both poems are very good and are very meaningful but at the end the poem “Sympathy” by Paul Laurence Dunbar is more meaningful because he includes many more chilling details about the bird and the conditions of the cage in which the bird spends all his
This results in the captivated tone being seemingly careless while being supportive at the same time. Furthermore, as an act of rebellion, while Andy played music through the prison’s speaker system, Red comments: “I tell you, those voices soared. Higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away...and for the briefest of moments -- every last man at Shawshank felt free.” (277). Without directly conversing with Andy, Red utilizes a metaphor to compare Andy to a “beautiful bird”.
The way the story this story is told through following the outlook of a child soldier is a truly matchless experience, the view scenes of the movie that will remain fresh in my mind because they were directed in such a perfect way a terrible view of war that will stay with me for many years.It is one of the best war movie I have ever seen in my life I would rate it 9 out of
The first act that he does is to rejuvenate the spirit of the inmates with his hilarious attitude. He asserts “…what I came to this establishment for, to bring you birds fun an’ entertainement”(11). He realizes that the first act to be done in a panic stricken world is to bring back laughter, one of the gifts human being forgot in their life. In the essay ‘Salvation Through Laughter: Ken Kesey and the Cuckoo’s Nest Stephen L. Tanner suggests that this differentiate Mcmurphy and the inmates of the asylum. There is no place for laughter in the Big Nurse’s smooth running machinery of manipulation, and the patients are conditioned in such a way that they are afraid of laughter (58).
The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates is a New York Times Bestseller by none other than, Wes Moore. This novel features an intriguing tale of two boys who grew up under the same circumstances, under the same names, and with the same chances; and yet one manages to become a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader while the other grew up heisting and selling drugs until he received a life sentence for felony murder after shooting a police officer. The more successful Wes Moore, Wes Moore, began to visit the less successful Wes Moore, the other Wes Moore, during his prison sentence in order to write the book.

For me, the scenes with Miller proved to be the most emotional, but really, the whole film was heartwarming or heartbreaking on some level. Beyond this, there are outstanding acting performances by Robert Deniro, Robin Williams, Julie Kavner and others. In that case, we give the movie a score of 10 out of 10. Well done to the director, writer actor and actresses. We are very well
Within this essay I shall conduct a comparison between two different films those being The Shawshank Redemption (1997, dir. Frank Darabont) an American film about young convict Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) and the decades of his life inside the prison of Shawshank alongside Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding (Morgan Freeman) and comparing it to the French film, Amelie also known as La fabuleux destin d’Amelie Poulain (2001, Dir. Jean-Pierre Jeunet) which details the life of the title character Amelie as she goes about her life trying to help others around her. From first observations one would probably be confused at the selection of films being used for comparison since both films appear to be completely different on the surface, one is a Romantic comedy whilst the second is a Crime/Drama film. However after several viewings of both films, similarities started to appear which weren’t noticed from the first viewing of these films which peaked interest in writing about how these two completely different films are actually quite similar to one another, indeed they have their differences which will also be expressed and these differences also play a vital part in making these films individual mediums.
Thor also taught us the value of the most important thing which is ‘hope’, we learnt another thing from this movie which is “we never realise our mistakes till we are punished and then when we realise we are able to stand again”. Marvel movies also teach us to accept our flaws. We do appreciate the way Hulk fights but there are deeper values in the movie which must be appreciated. It tells us that, if we know that we are not perfect and can’t fight our imperfection then the best thing to do is accept them and embrace those imperfections as your signature. We all have that frustrated, out bursting Hulk inside us but we must use that to achieve better goals.
