The sand savages scavenge through Luke’s vehicle, until Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives scaring off the savages, saving Luke.

The connection that I can make to Lusus Naturae a connection with the book/ film franchise Star Wars. The comparison that I can make between these two stories is in the similarities between the townspeople/ the protagonists family and the xenophobic Galactic Empire that is present in the Star Wars series. The first comparison I can make is in the similarities of the “reasonable” actions that both factions commit in order to protect themselves. In Lusus Naturae, to avoid the shame of having a diseased daughter, and all the nuisances that came with it, the protagonist’s family decided it would be easier to “kill her off” in order to avoid the ongoing shame that she apparently caused them.

The article “Shakespeare in Outer Space” mentions a quote from Kenneth Rothwell which points out that “Part of watching this film (Forbidden Planet) lies in picking up all the connections within The Tempest (Shakespeare in Outer Space).

A crew ship lands on a stranded island, but in The Tempest the crew is “Invited” or Prospero led them to this island, but in Forbidden Planet Morbius wants the crew to leave. Both crews are brought to the powerful leaders of this island by slaves which are Ariel and Robby the Robot.

Star Wars as all we know is a very famous movie series. There are a lot of different movies and books.

Philip K. Dick uses the Crime & Punishment motif and plot in order to create suspense and action in his story “The Crystal Crypt.” Within the story, Dick uses the motif Crime & Punishment alongside plot to create suspense. Dick omits the exposition and heads straight to the conflict, creating suspense. For example, right at the beginning of the story, Martians tell a spacecraft carrying humans to "... land at the Control Station on Demios for inspection" (3). This inspection appears clear out of the blue, and the reader has no idea why the Martians stopped the ship.
The Fifth Review Now this is how you write a book ladies and gentlemen. The book The Fifth Wave, written by the brilliant author Rick Yancey, takes the post alien apocalyptic novel to a whole new level. Now, when you think about an alien invasion it’s usually aliens running around the planet aimlessly, and us fighting them to keep our planet and race alive! Not the case here, the aliens are not running around the planet, we are. Instead they are just in this floating mother ship in the sky right in the middle of orbit, and we are sitting ducks.
In that past, women have had a false image of sexuality, weakness, and self- consciousness. Now, women in today’s culture have taken on a new role, a much stronger role. Countless movies and television shows have powerful and inspiring female roles who deviate from female characters in the past. For example, Rey, from “The Force Awakens” in the Star Wars franchise shows several traits of a strong, independent woman who is fully capable of getting every job done herself. Rey is the perfect illustration of being the opposite of what Jean Kilbourne said women are.
