BARNABY OF MULCH (A TALL TALE) is an entertaining tale of a small town. The tone blends a nice combination of comedy and drama. There’s an ensemble cast of delightful characters and a small town feeling to the storyline. There’s definitely a lot to like about this script including the offbeat characters and the mystery surrounding the town Mulch. As much as one really likes the characters, the script would benefit from more development.
On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner. Unlike Odysseus, whose pride most always gets the best of him, Holden's only sense of demise is his immaturity. This downfall however demonstrates a more respectable connotation than the idea of total pride that Odysseus possess. However, despite a more admirable method of trickery, it is still trickery. Holden approaches his deception in a way which is harder to detect, he uses fake personas and stories to accomplish something a simple as a confidence boost.
I HATE KIDS presents as a fun and entertaining road-trip comedy. While the concept is not considered new to the industry, it’s a tried and true premise. It never gets stale to watch an emotionally broken down character learn to love through the love of a child. The goal is clear and the stakes are very personal. The tone nicely blends drama and comedy.
The story puts Roger in a tough situation to show that men mean well, but need a bit of help from women if they are ever to realize they are in a relationship. This is the main theme of Dave Barry’s story, which he shows through the use of age old humor techniques- misunderstanding, and stereotypes. It is not hard to connect with Roger and Elaine right from the start, thanks to Barry’s humorous personality that he writes with, and the universal situation he sets the story in. Barry’s words will stick with the reader, especially these wise words he imparts from the beginning; that guy are easy to have a fulfilling relationship with, provided that the guy is a Labrador retriever, and not a real
Another diverse aspect of this song his how nerdy it is. When people think of rappers, they think of hard, mean lyrics and rough backgrounds but Kyle is just the opposite. In this song he really excelled his originality and showed everyone that rap is not about being tough but about being yourself. If you were unable to tell from the title, this song is based off of the popular movie; Star Wars. Being nerdy is what sets him apart from other rappers the
I admire your post, fantasy films like Pinocchio, do teach children moral values. However, truth, courage, and selflessness are a lot for a young child to learn without a ton of bumps in the process. Nevertheless, even, with a conscience, mistakes happen; temptation can get the best of anyone, to say the least, a child. I selected “The Godfather,” who also taught a lesson of greed, from the genre, Gangster film, the movie presented a lot of truths, assassination style, and intimidation. The films and genres are different and the same, in real life a wooden puppet would never come to life.
When Brick and Chani list of characteristics about themselves, which are not facts that seems socially appropriate to share with someone you are trying to impress, the audience finds it humorous because of the obvious mismatch present. Furthermore, this could also be considered and example of the cognitive debugging theory of humor, because we become aware of the fact that when someone says “tell us about yourself,” we typically only tell impressive
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
Linda teaches him about this wonderful, soma-induced society, but he doesn 't fit in. John despised the modern ways, and has a strong antagonistic attitude toward this pleasure-driven community. For the habitants it 's perfectly normal to have multiple sex partners and to consume narcotics, and to visit one’s sick mother is an abominable act. As Bernard writes in his journal, “‘refuses to take soma, and seems much distressed because of the
When being told that men go through that they take to take it as a joke and ignore it instead of helping them. Men are often abused by their partners or girlfriend but they don’t tend to speak about it because they are either not aware of it or they just don’t know how to talk about
