The general mood was that of a cheerful determination. It was a time where everyone pulled together, making sacrifices for the good of the country (The US Homefront). Through the social and political disorder of this time, Superman comics impressed the simplistic view of America’s goodness against the dastardly forces of evil like the Germans, Japanese, and other cookie cutter villains (Impact of Superman). Even Superman’s core morals changed to reflect how society was feeling (Impact of Superman). Now, instead of fighting just for “truth and justice,” as he had been doing since his creation, Superman fought for “truth, justice, and the American Way” (Impact of Superman).
Orson Welles’s debut on a big screen, “Citizen Kane,” undoubtedly could be considered as one of the greatest masterpieces of the world cinematography. “Citizen Kane” was highly appraised both by the critics and the general audience, nominated for Academy Awards in nine categories and even topped the list of the greatest films of all times by the American Film Institute. The film was created in 1941, and it contained innovative visual and musical techniques as well as revolutionary plot, which has not lost its topicality. I do consider, that in his film Welles throws American society a challenge: he questions generally accepted values and destroys the American Dream. Basing on real material, the young director created a mythological personality and at the same time tried to destroy the myth itself.
“If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old” but is the new really that better than the old? Here we compare the role of Superman In both Superman 1978 and Man of Steel as well as the films as a whole. In 1978 Christopher Reeve definitely set the standard for the role of Superman, he won the hearts of many Superman fans with his charm and charisma on the big screen. Not only did he excel in the role of Superman but also grasped the character of Clark Kent. In the Superman 1978, Superman and Clark Kent were two separate characters, Superman being more confident and outgoing whereas Clark Kent being the introverted opposite.
I have high hopes for Infinity War and I am already confident it will do well because Marvel has taken the time to flesh out each of our protagonists that will be featured in Infinity War. Spoiler Notes -The new Black Panther is super OP and its new kinetic energy shield make it so much cooler than just a bulletproof suit with claws -Klaue stealing the vibranium had no impact on the story and Killmonger had no reason for not just killing him earlier. This arc felt like a plot device to introduce vibranuim and create melodrama in Wakanda -The 1v1 show downs for kingship were beautifully shot and the 1st one did a great job of showing the personalities of each tribe without using exposition -The spinning shot of Killmonger was just plain dope -The only time I ever felt the movie get a bit preachy was Killmonger's final line before dying. It felt like he wasn't his own character, but rather just a representation of anti racism -The neckalces were a great way to symbolize Killonger's flashy nature in gold as opposed to T'Challa's reserved and refined nature in
From the characterization, to comical descriptions, to the things the characters say, nothing that Kurt Vonnegut wrote in this story can be taken seriously. By Vonnegut presenting his story in this manner, it almost creates Harrison to look more like a supervillain than a superhero, like intended. However, in 2081, the moment Chandler Tuttle had Harrison escape from prison and barge into the auditorium, the tone switched and became extremely heroic and inspirational, creating his very own version of what today’s society would consider a superhero. The speech
Batman v Superman The rivalry between the Gotham knight and the kryptonian has gone on for decades. Both are popular superheroes who do good for others, and fight for their city. Each have their own way of handling villains and the safety of the world but the argument always goes back to who is the better hero? Batman and Superman have fought alongside each other for years, yet they are always compared to one another. Through differences in abilities, adversity and goals, it is easy to compare and contrast the two.
Sheen received the praise as being “the father of a modern dynasty of actors”. Sheen has received praise resulting in several awards, including winning a Golden Globe award.

Hailed as being, “imply one of the most celebrated and influential screen and stage actors of the postwar era,” which shows how truly great he is on the screen.
Dystopian novels have an entrancing factor that allows them to captivate the American public like no other genre. The mass popularity gained by these novels can be seen dating all the way back to 1950’s with the publishing of George Orwell’s 1984, and through the present day with the publication of various dystopian novels such as Divergent, Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games. The main reason why these dystopian worlds resonate with so many people is because they address present day problems in outlandish but conceivable ways, "whatever its artistic or philosophic qualities, a book about the future can interest us only if its prophecies look as though they might conceivably come true."(Beauchamp). While The Handmaid 's Tale focus on a variety of issues, such as the mistreatment of women, it also realistically illustrates the mental deterioration that occurs during prolonged periods of isolation in captivity. Atwood clearly emphasizes this point through the inclusion of Offred 's inner thoughts; which in turn, help to illuminate to the reader the process of this deterioration.
Most of presidents are ambitious and are good at following good examples. As follows, I will list several the most influential presidents and they are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt whose head portraits were engraved in Mount Rush National Memorial. In my opinion, Franklin D.Roosevelt is also an admirable president. All of them brought America new faces and pushed America to new starting points. In a word, I will talk about five presidents who brought hope and future to America and I will see the reason why they are so respect and what we can learn from each
“Rosebud” is still used many times to talk about symbolism and metaphors. Citizen Kane is still known as the biggest Oscar snub of all time and at the same time its still known as the best film of all time. And for a newbie director to make a film so lauded with praise requires something
