This alone is very impressive for any writer, but King has almost been awarded for every movie that has been created from his books. Another amazing book is “Shawshank Redemption”; this book was made into a movie and was released on Sep 23, 1994. The “Shawshank Redemption” has been given over forty nominations and awards. This has been seen as one of the best movies ever created because of its ability to get the audience to fall in love with the characters, even if they are prisoners we all feel sorry for them. In conclusion, King has won so many awards due to his ability to catch the readers and viewers attention and make them fall in love with a
If you don’t like superheroes (The most popular film genre), ideas taken from Star Wars and Indiana Jones (some of the most memorable and most profitable film series of all time), and Marvel (one of the most profitable companies in the world) then I’m going to have to tell you otherwise. I have to convince you. Well, let’s start that. I’ve already stated twice now that this is a “Marvel Movie”. Marvel Studios is awesome!
The women in this epic are shown as either one extreme or the other with no in between. Either obedient virgins who run from the gods in the fear of getting raped, or vengeful and malicious women who are in the hunt for revenge. A prominent theme in metamorphoses is that these women in fact do not have an in-between state, just one extreme or the other. Ovid also uses this as a great contrast between different female characters in each of his books. This can be seen in the contrast between Io, the water nymph who is taken and raped by Jove against her will, and Juno the vengeful goddess who takes her revenge on Io.
Arbuckle’s success is an incredible story seeing how he was able to create a successful physical comedy career weighing so much. He was so successful that at the time he was considered one of the top actors in Hollywood. It is also amazing to see how quickly even back then a career could be destroyed by one accusation. The fact that he went to trial three times over a hung jury is an incredible and rare circumstance especially since his case was the talk of the country.
I believe that it is for these reasons that Slaughterhouse- five won the Prix du Jury at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, the Hugo Award and the Saturn Award. Overall, I would give Slaughterhouse-Five a 3.5 star rating. In my opinion, it was such a great adaptation of the novel. Individuals that are great fans of the book, will definitely fall in love with the movie. However, I felt like the parts of the novel I enjoyed the most were not implicated in the movie.
Throughout the film noir genre we have explored the role of the femme fatale characters who use their womanly charms as weapons to manipulate men and achieve some higher goal. There acting skills to appear vulnerable and helpless, along with her manipulative nature creates a cold hearted master over men, disguised as a damsel in distress, which our heroes cannot resist. This femme fatale character is portrayed perfectly by Norma Desmond in Billy Wilder’s film Sunset Boulevard but is also challenged by the strong, yet kind, character of Laura Hunt in the novel Laura by Vera Caspary. The feminist view of Laura shines a great light on how women can be empowered and independent and seeking to gain status or monetary gain, but from their own hard
Keanu Reeves is considered one of the most wise and nice actor alive right now. According to Movie Plot, “It's safe to say Keanu is one of the most likeable stars in the Hollywood machine, an A-lister unaffected by the dazzling lights and disconnect from reality that can come with a high-profile acting career. He is, as they say, a genuinely nice guy” (Derisz). Many people wonder has someone could be this nice. They believe that there is no possible way other than being alive on the earth before.

Until the wave of feminism occurred in the 1970s, women’s societal roles were primarily that of caretakers of the home and mothers. Given the patriarchal society’s misogynistic views of women, any defiance from a woman was seen as rebellious. Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales creates characters that defy and uphold these diminishing views of women throughout various tales. In the first tale, “The Knight’s Tale,” Emily displays relatively positive feminine characteristics through her exhibition of courtly love. Her presentation of purity contrasts the medieval opinion of women as being deceitful, which is evident in future tales.
An Open Letter to Women In Maya Angelou’s Even the Stars Look Lonesome, she writes, “The ax forgets what the tree remembers”. Such a powerful and true statement directly relates to my topic today. Sexual assault is a provocative and uncomfortable topic. Not only does it silence its victims, but those who are not victims turn silent as well. Nevertheless, we can no longer be silent.
It’s a sad, disappointing case that these women have to face, yes, they have committed a crime and yes, they are serving their time but when it comes to childbirth and being pregnant why are they being treated so indifferently? It doesn’t make any sense as to why the government has not done any investigating or to why this topic has not been brought up in legal matters. Some women have gone out and told their story but what good has that gotten them? Where has that taken them? What kind of justice have they gotten?
