Roger Ebert starts by calling the movie “Jaws” as a sensationally effective action picture and a scary thriller. He explains that it works all the better because it’s populated with characters that have been developed into human beings that we get to know and care about. He then compares the movie to as frightening as “The Exorcist” but he says it’s a nicer kind of fright yet somehow more fun because they’re being scared by an outdoor-adventure saga instead of by a brimstone and vomit devil. 4.

In Rod Sterling's tale, “Monsters Are Due On Maple Street,” he similarly explains this in a real situation in any place, such as Maple Street. He goes on to show his readers and watchers of the “Twilight Zone” that humans have several weaknesses that cause them to turn against each other. For example, their panic over sudden change, their speedy inferences, and their gullibility. These are common weakness that people are born with that may not only help them but destroy them as well. In conclusion, “we have met the enemy, and it is us.”
The speech also brought the conversation outside of the Holocaust. “In a way, to be indifferent to that suffering is what makes the human being inhuman”. (Wiesel) This is an example of one of his many interesting, thought provoking quotes from the
Even though differences in their interpretations can be found, their main role remains the same – survival on human flesh and/or brain, as well as terrorizing the human race. The word „zombie“ was not used in the TV series. Instead, the characters create their own names and categorizations for them, with the term “Walkers” being frequently used. As stated in the previous chapter, everyone is infected by the disease, which means they carry a virus which turns them
But there are some important differences, the mood in both books are kind of dark, and sad, and seems there is little happiness. Death, it’s around us, it everywhere, it’s overwhelming, it’s... sad.
He fits all the criteria for a tragic hero; he has a flaw, hubris, that eventually leads to his downfall. This downfall is when he causes his son and wife’s deaths by sentencing Antigone to death and eventually killing her. Also, Creon realizes his flaw in the end, which is the final criteria for a tragic hero. Creon's suffering was defiantly insisted upon through his pride, and it most definitely made him much, much worse. Therefore, with a life both tragic and saddening, Creon is the tragic hero in
The movie is both funny and action packed but the book is more detailed. So I enjoyed the book more. The film forgot a lot of characters and changed many scenes and it really frustrated me. 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.
In the novel “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”, the narrator, Chief Bromden, tells the reader a terrible tale. At the end of the first chapter, he prepares the reader for what is to come. With the saying “But it’s the truth, even if it didn’t happen”(8), he says that even though what he will narrate sounds too horrible to be true, it is. This harbinger points to how the institute tears down the patients so much that they will come to find laughter as something to help them take back their freedom.
Aylmer does not seem integrally evil at the beginning of the story; he is described as a brilliant scientist, and it is palpable he loves his wife. A couple days after he married her he becomes the antagonist of the story. In this circumstance he begins to forget how beautiful Georgiana is and instead only focuses on her birthmark. His constant undermining of her self-image is pure evil camouflaged as loving criticism. His stupidly wicked experimentation on her body cause her definitive death.
Watching it this second time with the things I have been learning currently in my mind, allowed me to view it in a different perspective. I do agree with the article in saying that it almost humanizes the zombies and allows us to sympathize with them, considering that they are not the bad guy necessarily in this movie. I find it odd that society is attempting to reproduce the same success that vampire love stories have had; I will always have a hard time accepting that due to the fact that zombies are dead and eat brains. That seems more inhuman to me than any other creature. I enjoyed both the article and the movie because I was given the change to broaden my perceptions and analyze zombies in a more profound
My overall thoughts on this movie were I found the death scenes to be brutal, fun, and one of a kind definetly more then intense then the original. At the same time a little more comedic, which took away most elements of fear for me. I was totally digging the death scenes, with how clever each one was. Most parts I had my eyes covered, which is another thing that gets me into a good horror film. Black Christmas had intese scenes of stalking as well giving it fresh unbelieveable views that somebody is watching under a bathroom tile.
“Beheld a man’s head in a tall nightcap, and the bell mouth of a blunderbuss. It’s loaded, said a voice.” This old man is Davie’s uncle. He’s a drunk man who tried to lead Davie to his death even though he was crying for help. At least in the movie he cried for help.
The article “The Unending Heartbreak of Great Expectations: Why I Can’t Watch The Mindy Project Anymore” expresses the author’s opinion about the first season of “The Mindy Project” and why she did not like it. Initially, Eesha Pandit had great expectations for the show since it was the first TV sitcom staring an Indian-American in history, deviating from mainstream. She highlighted it as “an historic achievement”. However, it was not long after she began watching the show that she formulated her first criticisms: “I quickly realized that the show has an uncomfortable, and painful-to-experience, relationship with race”. Besides this, Eesha mainly argues that Mindy’s feminism has nothing to do with hers at all, stating that she “could not stomach”
