Incoming freshman should know what happens when a student must be written up, why the first month of school is the busiest time, and lastly what is the best part about being a RA. The first question I asked Zach was what is the process of writing someone up? He told me it is an effortless process for the RA, but for the person getting written up not so much. All Zach has to do is fill out a form describing why the person is getting written up then his job is done. The slip is turned into the RD(Resident Director), who sets up a meeting with the rule breaker and then during the meeting is when they decide what happen.
That air dunk he did from the free throw line was still a huge way to dunk even today. It showed his ability to get vertical and his drive to win. Later in these times, it’s a signature icon to his shoes and merchandise, but he was a tough guy to beat in these competitions. Eagle (2013) says, “The greatest dunk contest of all time offered Jordan the opportunity to avenge his loss to Dominique Wilkins in 1985. More prepared, more focused and performing in front of his home crowd, Jordan pulled off the win thanks to an iconic free-throw-line dunk on his last attempt.” (para.
Jack started working at age 8, doing whatever he needed to do to make money working hard. Bernie, Jack’s older brother, earned money as a fighter in the local saloons and taught Jack these life skills. A fun fact about Jack’s life is that his brother told him to chew pine tar gum and soak his face in brine to toughen his skin. Around the age

Taking after many other comedies before it, Step Brothers enlists two comedic actors, both well known for playing outrageous characters (in this case playing two adults who act like they still children), who play best friends. Much like Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson did before them in Wedding Crashers, Will Ferrel and John C. Reilly work together to create a movie that truly shines a light on the common bromance. Most bromances portrayed in film tend to have a relationship that follows ones in romantic comedies. Like many male bromance of the 21st century, the relationship that appears to be close friendship between Dale and Brennan could be read as more romantic. In Step Brothers, 39 year old Brennan (Will Ferrell) and 40 year old Dale (John C. Reilly) are forced to move in with each other other when their parents get married.
Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were both very successful during the 1980s. Their films are filled with a sense of timeless fantasy, high adventure, and great special effects. (“Spielberg and Lucas”) Both of them breaking box office records, their movies continued to pander to the tastes and desires of young people, as well as adults. With successes like Return of the Jedi (1983), Ghostbusters (1984), and Back to the Future (1985) many of the blockbusters during the decade were well-constructed films with strong characters and plots not entirely built upon their special
Alfred Hitchcock was born on August 13, 1899 in Leytonstone, London, United Kingdom, and was the youngest of his siblings. He was one of the most famous film directors of the twentieth century because of his positive attitude towards filmmaking, and his exceeding skills and talent as a filmmaker. He directed more than 50 feature length films from the 1920’s into the 1970’s. In 1925, Hitchcock directed his first film, ‘The Pleasure Garden’ (1925), and made “thrillers and suspense films,” which was why he was well known around the world. Due to his exceptional ideas, people today, still watch his movies and compliment on the way he directed.
In doing some research, his movie Bringing Down the House was a box office hit bringing in $31 million on its opening in theatres. As a Producer, his top grossing movie was The Pacifier. I chose four of his movies for comparison purposes. The movies I chose were: Wedding Planner, Step up 2, A Walk to Remember and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Based on watching just these movies I would have to say the director enjoys a romantic movie/family comedy in which the ending is exactly how the viewer would like it to end.

Then there’s the music, which is filled with emotion that speaks better than the characters do. Treasure Planet connects me to my culture because it was one of the first movies I'd ever seen and I would sit with my father and watch it whenever he was home. It also reminds me that, no matter your background, with determination, you can do and be anything. Jim Hawkins starts off as a delinquent, but develops into an amazing character that overcame all of his problems. It proves you can do anything.
