Tim Burton uses drastic makeup to make the characters stand out from the crowd, which makes them an outsider to everyone else. In Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton makes Edward, the protagonist, look very dark and mysterious. Kim, Edward’s love interest, has a negative initial reaction to Edward because of his appearance. His appearance makes him look as if he is a monster, but Kim later figures out that he is very sweet, loving, and nowhere near what she thought he was like. Edward was a prime example on how appearance has no effect on who someone is on the inside.
During the day Victor is tortured by the thought of his creation, and the ramifications that have followed. When Victor reflects on his life he realizes “it was during sleep alone that I could taste joy” (Shelley 195). Victor could only find consolidation in his sleep because it is the only time he can truly escape his
Aeschylus once claimed “And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our own will, comes wisdom by the awful grace of god.” Aeschylus shows that pain has incredible effects on the being. Pain plagues and diminishes the mind, body and heart, corrupting the soul itself. In Erich Maria Remarque 's All Quiet on the Western Front, the narrator, Paul Baumer, along with his fellow soldiers, experience these pains almost constantly throughout the story. Due to the traumatizing situations the men are put into during war, they are incapable of readjusting to humanity outside of the battlegrounds.
While in LOST, the differences between characters means that conflict arises very quickly. This creates a totally different story for the beginning of both works. As well, the actual themes are radically different. In Lord of the
Anger is a natural expression in many situations. Anger is usually understood, but in some instances it's not. When someone is under stress or is accused of something, it is understandable to be angry. In Roald Dahl’s short story “Poison,” Harry is angry because he is under stress, taken aback by the doctor’s sarcasm, and because he misread the situation. Timber was understanding of Harry’s anger at the end of the story.
His eyes were closed now and in the light from the stars and the moon…”(Silko 287). Due to the imagery, the readers may picture an ill man lying on his side, curled in a ball, closing his eyes, preparing to die. In this scene, Ayah is there for his comfort so he can pass calmly. This quote relates to the theme because Ayah is thinking of all the past
Pat is diagnosed with Bipolar disorder while Tiffany has depression. Based on the movie, Pat’s disorder makes it hard for him to connect with and understand people. He has very poor social skills and is often referred to as having “no filter”. Pat also displays angry and violent tendencies when he gets frustrated or upset. An example of this is when he has trouble finding his wedding video and he wakes his parents up at two in the morning, accusing them of hiding it from him.
The story “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Ken Kesey is seen through the perspective of a schizophrenic patient in a mental hospital pretending to be deaf, dumb, and mute. Because of his clear mental illness, it is difficult to tell in the story what is true and what is just in his mind. Throughout the story, the intentions of the patients and staff are questioned by whether they are acting morally. The issues brought to light by the story are using cruel and unusual punishments on mentally ill patients, fighting authority, and putting a human out of his or her misery by killing them, and if these actions are morally correct.
Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp's performances in the two films are equally wonderful and yet, almost entirely different. While Wilder downplays the part with a quiet subtlety, Depp is over the top and manic. Depp's performance is also psychotic at points. Both actors have taken the part and made it their own. Wilder's lackadaisical attempts to stop the children from being take away, indifferently chanting things like "Help" and "Oh no" in monotone.
The characters have a sense of a dirty, raw vulgarity to them. With characters like this the plot could almost build itself, as conflict is almost completely inevitable. Each person in this book has a simple lifestyle, but when these personalities and lifestyles clash, it creates conflict rapidly. Scarseth gives reasoning that even simple people can experience tragedy. Not even the simplest of people can avoid it and Scarseth relates it to the book by saying this: “…simplest dream of the simplest man – even poor dumb Lennie – cannot come true.
This was called the quartering act. This was a start up leading to the Boston Massacre. Eventually the colonist didn 't like the fact that they had to share a house with a british soldier and so they said that they were done with them being in their houses. So one night the british decided to set up the
Also, the background music wasn’t helpful either. It distracted me as the person read. In conclusion, I believe the play is better than the audio. My three reasonings were, I can visualize, hear the voices, and see the reactions that are happening.
