Joseph Campbell is a famous anthropologist who studied myths, stories, and religions from all over the world. He found a common thread that linked all of them. George Lucas used campbell’s non-fiction book Hero with Thousand Faces to get mos of his ideas to right the movie Star Wars.

Once the hero has received his Call to adventure, like George Lucas’s Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, they must go on to face their first challenge, the threshold guardians, which ultimately challenge their will to take on the burden of the task. For young master Skywalker, the threshold guardians come with guns. Shortly after young Skywalker receives his call to adventure, from R2-D2, the little droid disappears. When Luke finally locates R2, a group of warriors called Tusken Raiders strike at Skywalker, knocking him out. The sand savages scavenge through Luke’s vehicle, until Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives scaring off the savages, saving Luke. The wise and helpful guide takes Luke to his homestead giving him a magical talisman, a “lightsaber” that belonged to Luke’s father, “the weapon of a Jedi knight” (SW:ANH). The threshold guardians, although only the second step on the hero 's journey, determines a huge part of one’s fate, for if one cannot overcome this first obstacle they will not have the will or perseverance it takes to overcome the challenges of an epic hero. The hero must learn to trust the wise and helpful guide and learn how to use the Magic talisman to overcome future challenges and to have the confidence it takes to be a hero.

` In May of 1977, Star Wars: A New Hope was released with overwhelmingly positive reviews and marking a new era in cinema. The writer and director of the film, George Lucas, decided to expand upon the Star Wars universe in 1999 by making Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, with a story that took place before the original film’s story. This movie was made with advanced equipment and cutting-edge CGI (for 1999), nonetheless, the movie was panned by critics and enraged an entire generation of moviegoers. The answer to why this happened lies in the differences between the two films: use of special effects, construction of characters, and complexity of plot.
Matthew and Luke were both evangelists. They both helped to spread the Gospel, the good news of Jesus. Their telling of the Gospel is very similar, yet very different at the same time. They are similar because they both tell the same story. Meanwhile they are different because the events aside from the fact that Jesus was born are all very different. Specifically the infancy narratives differ in particular ways that may cause the audience to question which infancy narrative is more correct. This essay will compare the infancy narratives of Matthew and Luke and will show how the infancy narrative of Luke previews the themes of Luke’s Gospel.
The movie I decided to choose was Forrest Gump. This movie has a lot of history of the United States that starts from around the 1950s and then into the present. The movie shows many trends in various social movements that were going on in the United States. The main character in the movie, Forrest goes through many individual and social issues through out the movie. Many of the issues are universal, but the movie shows the American nature of the social and individual issues that I believe help Non-American people learn some American culture through a great movie. The American cinema has been dominating the cinema world in the recent decades, which has a lot of influence on many people who watch the movie.
