“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies. In the past, he has produced dramatic movies like Madea’s Big Happy Family and Diary of a Mad Black Woman. From the commercial preview, the movie “A Madea Halloween” will be funny because of Madea's funny voice along with her other great character skills that make an audience laugh.
Socrates as a wise man understands that if religion forms humans’ personality and views on surrounding, then it means that there is no place for you as a human being. Thus, Socrates tries to argue with Euthyphro to find the definition of goodness and asks Euthyphro questions. Euthyphro gives several definitions of goodness such as prosecuting his own father is an act of goodness, but Socrates quickly responses to him that it is only instance but not the definition. Then, he replies to Socrates that goodness is something that is pleasant to gods. However, Socrates is not satisfied with such definition and responses to Euthyphro that many of conflicts exist among the gods and what is pleasant to one god might be unpleasant to another.
Holden often carries hypocrisy because he exposes the weakness of others but doesn't pay attention to his own weakness. In J.D Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, we can see Holden Caulfield show the weakness of others but he never seems to recognize the weakness that he has throughout the story nor the depression that he has he talked about it but he never fully recognizes it. With other characters like Ackley, Stadler, Mr, Spencer Ect. we can see Holden find the weakness of these characters saying that they are hypocrites but he never seems to comprehend how much of a hypocrite is.
This shows how Holden is associating religion with phoniness. He doesn’t think that religion can be authentic, just related to faith. Holden wants that faith and connection, which he demonstrates by saying that he wants to pray, just a page before. However, the idea of an organized religion seems fake to Holden. I think that this is because of traditions behind these religions which Holden doesn’t feel connected with.
He states through his studies “that people need to believe in a just world; thus, evidence that the world is not just is threatening, and people have a number of strategies for reducing such threats” (APA Psych Net). Begue believes that a Just World is playing it safe; it makes individuals become more aware of who is surrounding us, providing us with additional information regarding this
After that, he no longer is king and is taken from his throne. His downfall was brought upon him from his excessive pride; he is so full of pride throughout the book that he continually denies that anything bad can happen to him. It is written like this in order to show that being to conceit, and believing that it horrible things can’t happen to people, will make people blind to when it does happen. When Tiresias the blind prophet come to Oedipus to bring him the prophecy, Oedipus is too prideful to see what Tiresias is trying to say. Tiresias says “…You bear your burdens /
“It does, sir, it does; and it tells me that a minister may pray to God without he have golden candlesticks upon the altar.. it hurt my prayer sir, it hurt my prayer. ”(1277) John Proctor does not like having Reverend Parris as minister of salem. Proctor openly says that he does not like how Parris seems to only care about money and his own well being and reputation as seen with the golden candlesticks.
The ideas of reality TV shows are very professional in my opinion. However, the writer talks about how the producers “run out of ideas as an artistic society” on reality TV and insulting famous reality TV shows for being stupid. The biased article with poor understanding astounded me. Reality TV shows are a main source of entertainment to the world and people who finds it stupid will still watch it because it is stupidly funny or entertaining. Some reality TV shows might even help us in the future in our adult life.
Ram!” not urgent and fearful like a prayer or cry for help, but steady, rhythmical, almost like the tolling of a bell” (667). By calling out to his god, the onlookers may have felt his pain and thought about their god and whether they were being judged for not intervening in the man’s hanging; the same could be said for that of the reader. This example signifies the inherently wrong nature of taking another person’s life,
At the concentration camp, at night some of the other prisoners would talk of God and how He works in mysterious ways. They believed that they were being tested of their faith. Elie had a much different view of God after all he has been through because he "...was not denying His existence, but I doubted his absolute justice"(45). Elie still thought that God existed, but now he did not think God had power over everything. He believed if God had power over everything, then he would have prevented all the evil things that the Nazis did to the Jews and his family.
Henry approaches religion from an anti-authoritarian perspective and instead focuses on living as a non-conformist. Henry even suggests at one point that God may be an atheist, saying, “I often wondered, Deacon Ball, if atheism might even be popular with God himself” (19). While Henry is not rejecting religion with this statement, he is trying to convey that blindly following anything without stopping and questioning yourself is no way to achieve true intelligence – and that God himself disregards those who lack self-actualization. As Emerson’s maxim emphasizes as well, Henry is trying to push society to realize that the only way to achieve “integrity of the mind” is not the way people are blindly following the thoughts of others, but to boldly question authority, not just sit around and wait until you innately realize the truth about society’s conformist nature. Henry states, “We are all related … interrelated to an Universal Mind” (19) and reflects the maxim’s intended meaning, since Emerson intended originality and those who achieve a relation to the “Universal Mind” can fully achieve their potential as true
Jesse M. Wellens and his girlfriend Jeana have done countless of rude and silly pranks on each other in YouTube since 2007. Their YouTube series has garnered over 1 billion views and numerous laughs to start with. While I believe they do love each other, I fear one day the couple will lose an eye or limb by their reckless pranks. Here’s a couple gems from their YouTube series Jaboody Dubs/Studios: Dubbing over movies is not a new idea on the internet. However Jaboody Dubs/Studios have the funniest dubs of awful television commercials, infomercials, cartoons and awful b-movies you would have ever seen.
Steven Johnson is addressing to everyone he mentions that it is what current culture and tradition teaches us and it was created to "dumb us down". He makes the readers feel comfortable while still saying his ideas. But in his perspective it makes us more intelligent and we learn to think critically. He establishes ethos when he begins talking about facts about things that have happened. For example "the controversies that erupted around 24".
After reading Professor Randy Barnett’s piece, you truly have to question whether his original intent was to offer a simple review, or to denounce the credibility of H. Uviller and William Merkel. Randy Barnett’s underlying tone becomes immediately apparent to any engaged reader as he exposes the blatant opinion-filled diatribe hidden under the guise of a historical, educational book. Out of the gate, tongue in cheek, Barnett alludes to the idea of the original author’s misrepresentation of who they were and the sources they’ve collected. He portrays Uviller and Merkel, two scholars from Duke University, as confused amateur authors with little substance. If nothing else, Professor Barnett looks to discredit or possibly even scold Uviller and Merkel for trying to push
Grant-Davie opens his writing with numerous definitions of a rhetorical situation. He then says that these definitions do not grasp the complexity of rhetorical situations. To fully understand a rhetorical situation, he suggests an analysis of the exigence, recognizing that rhetors and audience are both a part of a rhetorical situation, and that there may be multiple rhetors or audience. Grant-Davie then stated the four constituents in rhetorical situations that are exigence, rhetors, audiences, and constraints.
