Gru shows that he’s not a good person, he doesn’t do what is morally right, and he also will just come and tell you he’s a villain. Of course Gru learns how to love and learns how to do that right thing, but he just can't be considered a hero in this case. When watching this movie people definitely feel bad for Agnes, Edith and Margo because they were adopted to a villain who didn’t really care about them. They were used as bait and that is totally wrong. There so call “father” is a villain wanting to steal the moon.
Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground titular character has a lifestyle that is interconnected with the somber dislike for humanity and being bitter for his own forced isolation. He is highly controlled by his own troublesome ideals. The Underground Man lives by the precedent of his own conceptions on how life should be lived. His perspective of the way people should interact socially and how individuals should be engaging emotionally has been thought constantly and thoroughly. He is highly contradictory in the rationalization of his own practices but appears to rather revile in his own self-pity.
In modern storytelling, it is common to use comparisons to make details easier to understand and lead the audience to a certain conclusion. A much more complicated form of this comparison is juxtaposition. Juxtaposition occurs when an author places two ideas/concepts/characters parallel to each other in order to compare them. The film Pan’s Labyrinth written and directed by Guillermo del Toro serves as a splendid illustration of juxtaposition in film. Beginning with the protagonist Ofelia in 1944 Franco-era Spain, the director presents the parallels between the evils of Ofelia’s make believe world and those evils belonging to the fascist regime and her step-father, General Vidal who is representative of this regime.
Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
In Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood,” Dick and Perry have murdered the Clutter family and are on their way to Mexico. In this passage, Dick makes an astounding statement. In the passage, Dick claims that he’s “a normal” but that is far from the truth. He is a conniving, manipulative son of a bitch who thinks he’s normal in comparison to Perry.
The officer also suggested to Leonard that it was not Sammy who caused the death of his wife by overdose, but rather it was, in fact, Leonard who did. Leonard does not take kindly to this and distorts all his notes to not trust the officer whose name is John Edward "Teddy" Gammell, and makes him the target of his quest for vengeance, eventually leading to the death of officer Gammell. The first philosophical topic to be discussed in Memento is the topic of memory. Memory is one of this movie 's main emphases and it can be seen throughout the movie as Leonard constantly brings up his memory deficiency.
During the movie he kills policeman, cannibalizes one (1), disembowels one (1) and removes the skin from the face of another and uses it to cover his own to aid in his escape by exchanging clothing and appearing to be an injured police officer. He can be very deceitful and manipulative it is very apparent that he is dishonest, however he does show a caring as well as a protective side for Starling. His messages at first glance would seem deceitful to the mass, however to the trained eye they become cryptic clues to help catch the killer. He shows no remorse for any of his actions, in fact he is very proud of the things he has done, he commented to Starling he once ate a man’s liver with some fava beans. He is very arrogant as well as opinionated but at the same time can be very charming (Dirks, 1991)

In the beginning of each of the three examples the decision to act is made because it is each of their jobs. Deckard is hired to kill the androids and believes them to be heartless creatures who only want to kill, therefore he has no moral objection to killing these humanlike creatures himself. Mitchell Courtenay is a Star-Class advertiser whose main goal it is to sell product to the public, and to convince the public that there is nothing wrong with the system that is in place to govern the people. As for “The Devil in the Dark” Captain Kirk is hunting a creature that he does not fully understand because it is killing members of a mining colony without provocation. However as the story for each of these characters continue they start to realize
Hello Toni, Although several characters are mention throughout the story, the main character and focus is Montresor. He is our vile narrator. He only cares about his own point of view, which is brutal, conniving, and vengeful. In my opinion, he is insane because he would kill someone his “friend” for something so minor.
