The two authors begin by stating the definition of cultural deformation. When Disney borrows “precious treasures of world culture” they don’t just copy it, they use it and distort certain components to adapt it to the culture it intended to reach through adapting strategies such as addiction, omission, specification, explication and alteration. (Tian and Xiong) The two authors go into depth in comparing the ballad to the film in terms of characters and plot. They state that the film adds characters such as Li Shang, Grandmother Fa, and several other while some details in the plot were also added in such as the matchmaking for Mulan, her father’s prayer to the ancestors, the capture of the emperor by the Huns and so on. The film also omits some of the details from the ballad such as Mulan being an only child, which is not the case in the ballad because Mulan has an elder sister and younger brother.
IV. BODY THREE a. Disney’s films also label the difference in social status, which creates a discriminating stereotype of how a wealthy person should treat less fortunate individuals. b. The last argument in this outline is the differences Disney’s film represents the gap between social and economic status. 1.
The Great Gatsby symbolizes social disparity in society. Fitzgerald uses colours, objects, the eyes of Dr. T.J Eckleburg, and places, East Egg, West Egg, the Valley of the Ashes to represent abstract ideas and concepts about the division in society. Firstly, major colours are presented in the novel which includes white, grey, and yellow, to examine the institutionalized system of social inequality. White, which is closely associated with Daisy, represents the false interpretation of purity and innocence. The use of colour white in East Egg like “white palaces”, Daisy’s name as a white flower, Daisy’s white car, and Jordan and Daisy wearing “white...dresses rippling and fluttering” (Fitzgerald 8) symbolizes vacuity.
There is often a contrast in the colors of theatrical masks depending upon the mood and role of the character wearing it. Light colors are often worn by the protagonist or “good guy” in the scene. Darker colors are often reserved for an antagonist or villain. In older plays white masks were worn to convey a sense of happiness while, black masks often portrayed anger or gloom. Nathaniel Hawthorne uses the same color scheme to project evil and goodwill throughout The Scarlet Letter.
Moves can show emotion in ways real life can not and Tim Burton’s films do this by creating emotions that are contradictory. An emotional state or reaction is a feeling and movie directors use them to help create stories. Some of the best movies make you feel multiple ways at once to make your movie going experience the best it can be. he uses close ups, music, and low key lighting to create comidikly unnerving feelings in the audience. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(Charlie) was a children 's story that Tim Burton adapted and turned it into a slightly darker story than the one we knew.
The Great Gatsby Book Vs Movie The Great Gatsby, written by F.Scott Fitzgeralds in 1925, and its movie adaptation directed by Baz Luhmann in 2013, are very similar. There are many details that remain loyal to the book in the movie. Yet, since the release of the book there are many cultural and social changes in our society. Consequently, certain things of the book’s theme, characters, and symbols are no longer acceptable/enjoyable to audience. The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book.
Nevertheless, by then, millions of people had already seen the movie in the theatres with the original lyrics. The lyrics of the song Arabian Nights are just one of the many examples in which Disney movies stereotype minority groups, even up to the level that can be identified as racism. Yet, thinking about Disney certainly does not often lead to discussions about racism. However, watching these movies now as an adult and with the ability to critically question the depiction of marginalised groups, these illustrations raise the question as to if and how beloved classic Disney features help fostering stereotypes and racism. Therefore, the following academic work aims at debating this issue.
Like all good dystopian stories, the world of A Clockwork Orange shocks us because it is not impossible to achieve. The perfect tyrannical societies portrayed in George Orwell’s 1984, or Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, or Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, or even Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series are all realistic because they beam present-day society into a twisted mirror and show us how close we are to becoming a daunting, hellish civilization. Similarly, A Clockwork Orange reflects English society as Burgess perceived it in the 1960s- fresh off the boat, he was startled by the prevalence of an irreverent youth subculture of coffee bars, teenage gangs, and rising incidents of juvenile delinquency. This, coupled with the fact that pioneers of behaviorism such as B.F. Skinner were gradually growing in importance, caused him to investigate the
In the film adaptation of the novel, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, some of the original aspects that make the novel so timeless are not included in the movie. However, due to the vastly different medium that film is and the abstractness of the novel, it makes sense why some things would have to change in order for the story to transfer to the screen successfully. While many die-hard fans of the novel denounce the film version of their beloved story, others celebrate the presence of Adams’ wit in the movie especially through the cartoon representations of the guide entries. First of all, the Hitchhiker’s Guide is pictured much differently in the movie than in the novel. The creators of the movie portray the guide as an
Even though Pearl and Hester have their “A” in the same spot on their chest, they differ in a plethora of ways. The namely reason being the coloration of the letter as well as the material. Hester’s “A” was red made from a cloth that was not of nature, while Pearl’s “A” was green and made from a natural substance. With the rules of dark romanticism, this shows that Hester’s “A” represented the evil in nature and
