“Honey, you are changing that boy’s life.” A friend of Leigh Anne’s exclaimed. Leigh Anne grinned and said, “No, he’s changing mine.” This exchange of words comes from the film trailer of an award-winning film, The Blind Side, directed by John Lee Hancock, released on November 20th, 2009. This film puts emphasis on a homeless, black teen, Michael Oher, who has had no stability or support in his life thus far. It is not until the Tuohy family adopts Michael, that he begins to realize what he is capable of as both a student and football player. There are various techniques used for capturing the attention of an audience as they are viewing a film or film trailer for the first time, and rhetorical appeals happens to be one of them.

In order to appeal to many people, great movies should have funny and loyal characters. The movie Grown Ups shows that because it is about five guys that have been bestfriends since their youth. The main character Lenny is played by Adam Sandler and some other people like Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James, and Rob Schneider also have roles in the movie, and who doesn 't think any of those guys are funny. One examples is when they take the character played by David Spade; put him in tractor tire and roll him down a big hill. Additionally, in the movie Pitch Perfect, Beca goes to college and her dad really wants her to join a club or sport, so she decides to join the Barden Bellas.

Therefore, in the beginning of the Typhoeus-Zeus war, it seemed like Zeus would fail or be defeated but, he ended victorious with even more followers and respect. Also, it can also be seen as throughout the war, Zeus felt like he was being defeated and had to think quick on his feet and come up with a plan to successfully win this war. This image (http://www.theoi.com/Gallery/M10.1B.html), says a lot about the equal chance both Typhoeus and Zeus had to win the war. At first, looking at the image it seemed like this war was an equal fight, both seem to be depicted as huge beings but, as I inspected the image more and more I came to realize that Typhoeus is depicted to be bigger, scarier, and more threating. As you can see by the picture the only weapons that Typhoeus needs are already attached to him, “mighty legs…eyes [that]…from his shoulders/ grew a hundred snake-heads shot fire…” (Hesiod 73) he even has wings and a serpent body.
The making of film, or the concept of it, has been around since the beginning of the 18th century. The lens of the camera has captured some of the most beautiful things, but also the most prejudice. Stereotypes of races, ethnicities, and gender have always been around but were widely considered acceptable in films of that era. Almost as long as there have been people filming, there have been people fighting for equality to be presented on the big screen. Danez Smith is one of these modern fighters in his free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood.” As Smith uses his words to create a poetic trailer for this stereotype-free movie, he tells the story of a young African American boy.
Cars is a good movie, I think it has an amazing message for the public. It is more important to produce movies like this.

He likes the competitions, but he first sees for the others and I think it is very important for the kids that see this kind of movies.
Everyone was so kind and willing to talk to you, the upperclassmen, my freshman year were the best, the juniors and seniors were really kind and made me feel welcome at this school.

At the end after a successful college football campaign Michael was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round in 2009, fulfilling all his goals and dreams. I fell into my friends comfy leather chair not so happy to see this movies, then a strange thing happened, it moved along quickly and pulled me into the story and at the end it left me feeling inspired. The Blind Side is not a film about sport as I thought,but it was rewards of showing love and support. While watching the movie, I realize that there are good people out there and that we sometimes take from granted what we have around us. Most important it makes me understand that I should never judge anyone.

It had been quite the shock for everyone in the little town when he had returned after his sister 's death to take care of her babies. He had been the pride of the town, having made it all the way to AAA minor league - played for New Orleans Zephyrs for two whole years before he blew his shoulder, but after that he had become a nobody. A loser. For a while drinking, partying, and hooking up with random guys had been his life. At some point he got to work as a truck driver, but he had given up on that after half an year.
