According to the film, Shyamalan uses aliens as an allegory to emphasize the belief of a higher power. For instance, when the news broadcast is showing the bird hitting the invisible spacecraft, the symbolic meaning is that God is there even if you don’t see his presence. The aliens in the film represent demons, they are fallen angels that prey on humans. In addition, the glasses of water that Bo leaves around the house is used to represent “holy water”. Holy water is used for spiritual cleanse and the holy water kills the aliens in the end.

Taking the risk that Mr. Mertle’s dog would “eat anyone who steps foot in the junkyard” Benny the Jet could’ve careless about the dog (The Beast). Perfect example of taking risks.

Anthony Burgess’ 1962 book A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian coming of age story that presents a society controlled by a totalitarian government set on making its citizens obedient by essentially turning them into robots. The story is told through the lens of Alex, the story’s fifteen year old antihero and protagonist, who is the leader of an all boy teenage street gang who he calls his “droogs.” The gang has even invented their own language called “Nadsat” as a way of communicating among each other. With his friends, Alex participates in vicious violent and criminal acts from which they derive pleasure. He is eventually captured and experimented on by the government. Though Burgess felt A Clockwork Orange was one of his worst works, I’ll have to disagree and say that a couple of aspects of his novel makes it one of the best books I’ve ever read.

Main Point 2: 1970’s film Beneath the Planet of the Apes tells a story about a new character who is sent on a rescue mission looking for Taylor and his crew. a. Sub Point: Basically, main character Brent crash lands at the same time and place as the previous film and takes a journey from the Ape Village to the Forbidden Zone where he finds Taylor. He also finds intelligent humans the live beneath (hence the title) that possess telepathic powers in direct result from the nuclear war that is said to have led to the reason of why Apes are now the dominant creature. b. Sub Point: This movie is all shades of fucked up. Not the best sequel and it ends with Taylor detonating a nuclear bomb that destroys the planet of the Apes.
