This represents one of the actor’s career-best performances. Often, he has gotten by on charm and charisma. Here, he has to delve deep to bring out Deckard’s soul. (Berardinelli) Ford’s character Rick Deckard makes a late appearance in the film, when Agent K tracks down Deckard the story begins to unravel as truth rises to the surface. As a long-time fan of Harrison Ford, I found his aging gruff character highly entertaining, while one gets to see a little comedic relief as these two male leads battle it out on the screen.
Nolasco 1 Felix Nolasco Mr. Kucharik 02/26/18 English IV The Invaders: The Battle of Limmat The Invaders, by John Flanagan, is a story that helps the meek feel like the heroes. The group is a motley crew of young men, from Hallasholm, that, against the odds, became the best crew of all the brother bands. Hal is the odd ball among them all, because of his great mind rather than fighting skills.
The Priest brought sausages, loaves of bread, great jars of pungent sauerkraut, bottles of wine, and the best beer my father ever tasted. The first days were very bad for my father because of the pain. But the priest ministered to him with those clumsy, soft hands through one long hard night when my father thought he might die. (Conroy)88 The Prince of tides is told by Henry Wingo’s son Pat Conroy so when he says father he means Henry Wingo. This quote shows that Father Kraus is very caring of Henry Wingo even though with all the care puts him in even more danger by tending to him while he’s in pain.
In the film, Cool Runnings directed by Jon Turteltaub, a character that I admire is Irvin Blitzer. I admire him because he is brave, supportive and knows how to learn from his mistakes. At the begging, he was introduced as a totally different character but later on clear changes in his personality are shown. Film techniques that are used to show that are dialogue, close up and over the shoulder shots. I admire Irvin because he is a character who learned from his mistakes and made the best out of the second chance given to him.
Phineas is Gene’s extremely influential best friend who can talk himself out of any situation. This effects Gene on a personal level because Gene is the polar opposite forcing him to envy his friend for, lack of a better term, attention. Gene’s envious attitude
Point of view plays a very strong role in the novel because it is what decides what readers know and don't know. In this case, it decided how readers feel and helps feed ideas into their minds. "I knew exactly what to make of it, and it made me mad enough to spit... what business had dad in healing that man... what right had Holgren to cross paths with the Great God Almighty"(80).
“We’ll see. We will see…”” This line is possibly the most impactful line of this entire book, because it’s essentially a grandpa telling his grandson that the entire future of everything is in the hands of him and this guy from across the border. All of these examples prove that Dr. Seuss is a master of not only parody, but nearly all satirical
A man named harry houdini loved his town and wanted to stay, so what did he do? He decided to become famous. How do we know this? He says two sentences that he said prove it ¨It is said that you know you are truly famous when the deranged imagine that they are you.¨ and also ¨It was this battle for supremacy that inspired one of his most dangerous illusions-the awesome Milk Can Escape.¨ Both sentences claims this approve the central idea because the first says no one can take someone else’s talent, and talent is one way of becoming famous. The second says that he will have to come up with dangerous tricks so people will stop trying to copy him any more, because you don’t want people to steal your spotlight.
(lines 457-487) In this scene, Wrothgar emphasizes here the great task that Beowulf wishes to undertake by vividly describing the deaths of the past warriors. However, this tactic does not scare the warrior, Beowulf because one can see that the hero’s pride is too great to back down, especially if no one has been able to defeat Grendel. As Wrothgar realizes this, he says to Beowulf, “Now take your place at the table, relish the triumph of heroes to your heart’s content.” (Lines 489-490)

Whether you view The Bible as a religious guide, history book, or a timeless work of literature, you likely find this idea perplexing enough to have a few questions pass through your mind’s eye.
Set in Hamburg, Germany, during an anti-Nazi swing movement in the 1930s, Swing Kids shines a light on small part of a much larger history. The love of British fashion, American music, and foreign slang becomes an underground movement in defiance of Hitler’s rule. This film is a work of fiction that illustrates what teenagers would have had to endure under these circumstances, that is for the most part, historically accurate. It focuses on three teenage “Swing Kids”, who ultimately make the choice between the Third Reich and their friendship.
Irony is the most powerful literary device used in the short story, “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. First, a good example of irony in the story is “They were burdened with sashweights sand bags of birdshot, and their faces were masked, so that no one, seeing a free and graceful gesture or a pretty face, would feel like something the cat drug in.” (P,2 Line, 11-13) This quote is Ironic as it tells how this system was designed to hide beauty, yet beauty was still shown by the amount of restraints on the person. Second, another good example of irony is, “The spectacles were intended to make him not only half-blind, but to give him whanging headaches besides.
Sunday night, as I watched the Giants fail miserably to cover the spread, I attempted to watch my wager fail in silent miserable fashion. That desire was interrupted around midway through the second quarter. As much as I just wanted to watch the game in peace I couldn't just ignore the GroupMe blowing up. "What are these idiots going on about?" I wondered to myself.
