Crooks hates the other men, so he gets mad at Lennie for invading his privacy. Crooks tells Lennie that he is very lucky to have George. Crooks believes that “a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody” (Steinbeck 72). He is usually by himself. Crooks soon realizes Lennie’s mental condition and takes advantage of him by saying that George will not come back from town.
The Black Mirror episode, USS Callister, uses the character Robert Daly to suggest the negative effects of toxic masculinity on women. Daly, an “underdog” and seemingly underappreciated co-founder of a popular video game, Infinity, uses simulated reality to completely immerse players in the gaming world. Although being the brains behind a two-person operation Daly’s partner, James Walton, comes off to the workers as a charismatic masculine playboy, causing Daly to disappear behind the shadow of his counterpart. While the relatable nature of Daly makes most of the show 's audience feel for him, it is quickly proven that the viewer 's compassion has been misplaced. While Walton originally comes off as man dripping with toxic masculinity and entitlement- it is Daly who is the antagonist of the show.
When Kenzo sees Sachi for the first time since he separated himself from her, "...he [turns] to Sachi and [tears] the scarf away from her face...'To think I wasted all these years on a monster.' " (Pg.67). The phrase "wasted all these years on a monster" shows Kenzo's anger coming into play and takes him as far as calling Sachi a monster. Kenzo's anger pushes him to insult Sachi for his personal flaw of only loving her for her physical beauty. The phrase "[tears] the scarf away" emphasizes the anger that Kenzo had building up within him that Sachi's beauty may actually be gone forever.
Throughout the television series, Agent Seeley Booth seems like a very confident and cocky man, who would mostly fit the category of a ‘player’ if it wasn’t for his really mature and religious attitudes. Even though he is successful with women he doesn’t openly express his sexuality afraid that it might seem inappropriate or he will be disrespectful. Especially, since his father was a violent man who physically abused his mother, younger brother and
During his conversation with Lennie, Crooks jokes around with him. Crooks tells Lennie to “s’pose George don’t come back no more” (71), which ends up scaring Lennie. Crooks takes pleasure in messing with Lennie’s head as his face lights up with “pleasure in his torture” (71). As Crooks is usually powerless due to his skin color, he takes enjoyment in the power he receives from manipulating Lennie. When Crooks continues to joke that George will never come back, Lennie threatens Crooks, Lennie walks “dangerously towards Crooks” (71) and demands he tell him what happened to George.
The disdain the major is showed the speedster ends when he skeptically opens his mouth to announce the transferring of the symbolic key. Before the politician could allow words to form, a anguishful cry erupts from the mass amount of people, causing them to splinter apart as they headlessly run amok. "Fantastic." he sarcastically rolls his eyes at the
Helen Mirren impersonated her character, Cameron Lynne. I know this because in The Making of State of Play she talks about having to learn how to be a mean boss and be very strict. Unlike Russel Crowe, Cal, or Ben Affleck, Stephan, they mostly fit their character’s stature and personality. Russel was already not so sophisticated man that easily caught onto his part. Ben is a very sophisticated, very political liking person that fit right into his part.
What else do you want done? I'm ready, willing, and I'll try to be able…She didn't say anything, or move” (Chandler 18). Quite smooth with his words, Marlowe shows the reader how to finesse the woman he is trying to get without being so explicit. Lola being depicted as the damsel in distress is immobilized by Marlowe’s words. This is because in a world filled with dirty, conniving, and menacing men, Marlowe stands out above the rest as being noble and valiant.
Bill and Sam were not prepared or committed to their situation which led to awkward or hysterical situations. “I…….. of all nerve’ but i looked at bill who had the most dumb look on any animal. ‘One more night and he’ll drive me crazy.’” The irony of the kidnappers having to pay the ransom amuses the readers. ‘I……. of all nerve.” Shows how appalled Sam was about how the situation had turned from bad to worse.
Pap happens to be one of the most hypocritical characters present in the book. Drunken Pap goes off in a rant about how “terrible” the government is for trying to take his son away from him. “Here’s the law a-standing ready to take a man’s son away from him - a man’s son, which he has had all the trouble and all the expense of raising.” (Twain 26) Pap wants people to believe he actively raised Huck, contrary to what

The Great Gatsby is a story about a man, who climbed his way up to the top with sheer determination and a girl who had an abusive cheating husband whom she did not really love. It is told by a man who is relatively poor, lives next to Jay Gatsby and is a cousin of Daisy’s. The newest movie is quite similar to the book but there are some differences. In the book, there is much more ‘space’ left for the description of the scenes. They appear more lively, more colourful, even when written to be ‘bland, grey, unmoving’ unlike the movie which, to no surprise, expressed the greyness much more.
