Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
In the film, “The Truman Show”, one can make a solid case on the pro’s and con’s of not only real vs fake in America, but also the questions of morality vs immorality and which is which? In the United States alone, I believe most can agree that there has been an obvious shift in the meaning of morality along with the obsessions of what is real and what is fake. In the film, the main theme is that the main star of the show Truman played by Jim Carrey, comes closer to the discovery that his entire life is nothing but a live television show that is played twenty-four hours a day. From the start of the movie you hear Marlon, who is played by Noah Emmerich and plays as the best friend of Truman in the film, saying “It’s all true, it’s all real,
True Fear and Loathing Hunter S. Thompson is well known today for writing “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” which inspired the cult classic movie by the same name. We catch a glimpse of who this man actually was in the following readings. Two narratives, one written by Hunter S. Thompson, himself; “Fear and Loathing in America” published in ESPN, reads as a reactionary rant about the terrorist attacks on 9/11. A second story, “Still Gonzo after all these years” featured in American Journalism Review, details Richard Keil’s drunken night of adventure with Thompson. From these two stories comes a lively depiction of who Hunter S. Thompson was, and what he stood for.
The Celtics boasted a long championship drought from 1986-2008, leaving fans in Boston disgruntled and antsy. That drought ended when Celtics GM Danny Ainge made pivotal moves to construct a team that would ultimately bring number 17 to Boston.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Over the course of the semester, we watched three films form 1967 featuring the actor, Sydney Poitier. Thoughts about marriage in the world have evolved from the first settlers. Interracial relationship has the movie shows, have experienced intense struggles and obstacles in the story. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was my favorite movie because it demonstrates that skin color does not define or determine anything in our lives, liberal education and persuasions can be put to test and that sometimes we do not need anyone approves to do things. They say “love conquers all”, but when the couple in love has two different racial backgrounds, that are when the

This is a perverse and wickedly funny melodrama in which you can find the seeds of “Dallas,” “Dynasty,” and all the other prime-time soaps. Sirk is the one who established their tone, in which shocking behavior is treated with passionate solemnity, while parody burbles beneath. All the reviews of this movie seem to involve lists: It 's about wealth, alcoholism, nymphomania, impotence, suicide, and veiled elements of incest and homosexuality. And the theme song, by Sammy Cahn, is sung by the Four Aces. The pieces are in place for a film you can mock and patronize.
“Bob & Carol” remains Mazursky’s definitive movie because of its shocking, funny and deeply serious dissection of a collective cultural mentality. It’s about the big differences between what people do and what people say, in a way that is exclusive to the city Mazursky portrayed so fondly and so well. Unlike the nebbishy Upper East Side-dwellers of Woody Allen, who remain largely fixated largely on class envy, creative hierarchies and sexual hang-ups, Mazursky’s unwound Angelinos fancy themselves on the brink of a wave of tolerance and progress. They’re perfect, upstanding, morally sound citizens of the world, and they’re also perfect clowns. When the four come to the conclusion that the only logical “next step” in their self-imposed spiritual cleansing is to all sleep together, Elliot Gould’s character casually remarks, “first, we’ll have an orgy.

He is in an upcoming movie named “Suicide Squad” And the movie will be in theatres in early August of 2016.

As you can see, Will Smith is still a famous actor and is in an upcoming movie “Suicide
His movies are famous for both carrying the visual amusement with brutal depiction of violence and criticism against society. Fincher always succeed in this. The message of this movie implicitly appears in the scene where the protagonist and Marla watching the skyscraper collapsing, holding their hands together just like Adam and Eve facing the whole new world. The scene where the narrator can't control Tyler Durden's behavior shows the risk of "being too instinctive", which can turn into self-demolishing action. One of the most frequently quoted movies in the internet ("Do not talk about Fight Club").
