For this Sociology On Screen assignment, I selected and analyzed the comedy movie, “Expelled”, directed by Alex Goyette and distributed by 20th Century Fox in the year of 2014. It all begins when Felix O 'Neil (Cameron Dallas), a troublesome teenager, gets expelled after recklessly pranking in Eastwood High School. He is a well-known prankster who rewired the fundraising money of the cheerleading team to a koala bear sanctuary, exposed incident photos of his teacher publicly, and hacked the vending machine and gave out free gums to his classmates. At first, he seems to be happy about his “early retirement”. Fearing that his parents will find out regarding his expulsion, Felix decides to falsify his report card so that his parents will not find out about his expulsion.
Due to the atrocities Heathcliff experienced at the hands of Hindley, he feels the need to punish his nephew in retaliation for the offences of the boy 's father.Consequently, Heathcliff follows in Hindley 's footsteps, further prolonging his own sorrow as his need for retribution continues to soar. After robbing Hareton of a proper education, Heathcliff wrongfully takes pride in his damning decisions that will lead to a lifetime of hardships for Hareton. He delights in informing Nelly that Hareton is a "fool" by his very design, shaping him into an illiterate and tactless boy just as Hindley had done to him. Furthermore, Heathcliff relishes in the knowledge that Hareton 's senselessness is due to his influence, not because the boy was born as an ill-witted individual. Holding the boy back from reaching his full potential would not be as satisfying for Heathcliff if there was little potential to begin with.

No individual, however, deserves the suffering these accused witches are forced to experience.
Damasio, commonly known as, “El Tilcuate” was another one of Pedro’s many workers, and alike the others, he has been corrupted by greed. Both of his names hint to his corrupt character: “El Tilcuate” refers to a type of black viper which attacks humans, fights with other snakes and devours them, while Damasio means “domador” or tamer. Pedro Páramo offered this greedy man a small property in order for him to pretend to be a revolutionary to keep off the real revolutionaries off his land. Damasio acquired the land he desired, but lost his morality along the way: he became corrupt.
And those Zooks will be sorry they started this game. “We’ll dress you right up in a fancier suit! We’ll give you a fancier slingshot to shoot!” The author is trying to show that everything that happens is the others fault and is making fun of it by saying that he gets a better weapon and a better suit .Then he will win but he never actually used the weapons. The book states “Grandpa leapt up that Wall with a lopulous leap and he cleared his harse throat with a bopulous beep. He screamed, “Here’s the end of that terrible town full of Zooks who eat bread with the butter side down!” This was written to show how over exaggerated the Cold War was.They fought over who was right and each side wanted to get rid of the other
Most of the characters in Les Miserables are victims of society, depicting the poor social conditions that people would have encountered during the 1800s.
