Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist. Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens?
In the movie however, she had dark brown hair and green eyes. Another example of this evidence is that in the first movie, Luke, son of Hermes and antagonist throughout the series, was described as having blond hair and blue eyes. In the first movie, he had brown hair and brown eyes. Now all of these points may sound superficial and critical but directors say that they follow the movie as accurately as possible. And yes I know that not all scenes from the book can be added to the movie but the directors should still try.
Dissenting voice ideology in animated movies Macayla Abercrombie Cinema Appreciation Monday and Wednesday 12:30-1:45 Movies offer different ways of looking at the world and everything in it. Each movie tells a story and the story can be inferred many different ways. Dissenting voice movies go against what the normal is, creating diversity and uniqueness. The ideology of the dissenting voice movies are not obvious to everyone. To find the ideology of these films, the audience must really think about what the movie is trying to portray to the audience.
When you watch a movie it’s almost as if you already know what will occur in the movie, including will the main character succeed in their main job? Meaning, many movies that are produced are very predictable, because of one major reason. They seem to follow the concept of the hero’s journey. That being said, to explain more in depth of how the hero’s journey does fall in place with many popular movies. There will be an analyzation of one of the most well known movies there is, it’s of course The Wizard of Oz.
Star Wars actually follows the whole Hero’s Journey the steps are a little out of order at some places but other than that is is about the same. There are many stories that follow this and it is very interesting to look at movies in this sequence, because you start to realize all of
The themes of the movie weren’t gradiently produced but rather plunged right into in the movie. For example, when Scout stood up for Atticus when the locals were going to go into the station and kill Tom it was shown in the first 15-25 minutes of the movie. In the book that scene of innocence wasn’t shown until further chapters, thus proving that the theme of innocence was thrown at the audience in the movie.

Mythological patterns appear everywhere in our day-to-day lives. All the way from the ancient stories told by our parents to the modern, digital entertainment we enjoy today, we cannot seem to escape one of the most common characteristics of myths: the stages of the hero’s journey. While most movies seem to portray these stages, none do it quite like the modern day film, Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan. In this breathtaking film, the character Joseph Cooper, portrayed by Matthew McConaughey, demonstrates multiple stages of the hero’s journey as he searches the universe for a new planet for the human race. Joseph Cooper’s insane journey begins with his call to adventure, a gravitational anomaly which conveys a message containing map coordinates leading to the secret, underground headquarters of NASA.

There would obviously be similarities between two Inheritance Cycle books, authored by Christopher Paolini; but who would think that there would be a correlation between the Inheritance Cycle books and Jurassic Park, which was written by Michael Crichton. Redemption and revenge, struggle for power and control, and good vs. evil (man vs. man) are just some of the themes brought to the table with these books. There are glaringly obvious similarities between Brisingr and Inheritance, because they are by the same author and they are from the same series. They generally follow the same storyline, just different events. In Jurassic Park, the struggle for power and control was one of the themes that Patrick noticed.
When thinking of the future, there are two very different ideologies: one is the positive version, which involves the idea of flying cars and robots. The other is a negative view with extreme governmental control and some form of a dystopian society. Writers, such as Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., believe that the government is corrupt; consequently, predicting the future as a bureaucratic dystopian society. In Vonnegut’s short story Harrison Bergeron, he focuses on the aspect of equality for all: “The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal… They were equal every which way” (Vonnegut 1). There is equality but at a cost of one’s free will.
