“His son, Theo, was knocked over and crushed against the side of a bus by a cab in New York, and secondly when their eldest daughter, Olivia, died, aged only 7, from complications resulting from measles"(“Roald Dahl: The Story Of The Storyteller”). He wrote a short piece of fiction about gremlins the mythical creatures that cause problems with RAF airplanes. The story became very popular and received a tremendous amount of attention(“Roald Dahl: The Story Of The Storyteller”). “Dahl’s books involve imagination and fantasy and they were humorous too.

Sometimes people may fall victim of an injury that completely changes their personality, but in this particular case there is no injury, just a man who decides it’s time to change. The man in question is called Gru, by day a super villain and by night the same. The only reason for his sudden change of mind is three orphan girls showing up at his house one day and seeing him as a potential father. In the beginning, Gru was a dreamer. He hoped to fly among the stars and hopefully shine bright enough for his disappointed mother to see.
The plot of the movie is that they are forced to take shelter during the Blitz. Jane Darling, who is Wendy’s daughter, does not believe in the stories of Peter Pan. She is mistaken because Captain Hook captures her on his pixie-dust-enchanted ship and invades an air raid alert to escape back to Neverland. In my research there has been a theory that Peter Pan is an angle that leads kids to heaven that have past fighting in the war. Also the pixie dust that tinker bell gives off so that anyone can fly was depicted to be poisonous gas that was used to kill by the U.S and Great Britain.
Star of the show Arturo Binewski, born with flippers rather than hands and feet, leverages his popularity to gain power over his family and the audiences he generates. In gaining this power and making himself the most important aspect of the carnival, Arty displays signs of narcissism against both family members and his audience. Arty’s first display of narcissistic personality disorder is associated with the birth of Chick into the Binewski family. “When Chick came along, both twins adored him…But Arty was different. He was separate” (Dunn 52).
In Fallon’s published journal titled “They Psychopath Inside” describes how Fallon discovered he had the genetic makeup of a psychopath, and yet, is a successful scientist and a family man. Fallon first discovered his hidden psychopathy in 2006, it was not until 2010 were he took his psychopathic traits seriously. Growing up he had a fantastic relationship with his parents and siblings. Fallon states that “Although I made pipe bombs as a kid, and did some joy riding in stolen cars and broke into some liquor cabinets as an early teen, we always returned every piece of stolen property” (Fallon, 2013). In addition, Fallon describes how he was tested, and scored high on the traits associated with positive behavior within aggressive narcissism.
The connotations of the movie are so positive and thought-provoking. There are two kinds of connotations, first connotation is about confidence and persistence are the power to overcome all things. From the beginning, Charlie lost faith in his boxing, and then meet her son. Ebert (2011) shows that in a "zombie dump", his son found a ancient training robot named “ATOM”, which was covered in mud. He persuaded his father and the relique still has combat potential.
Alexander Melvin Johnson was the best super hero spy in the world. His job was to save people that needed his assistance (just like any usual superhero spy would). There was one twist to Alexander 's though… his spurious identity, nobody even knew he existed. So whenever he saves someone his bright blue eyes and big cheeky grin ends up in the newspaper (like it always did) but, everyone would always be wondering who is that guy. On one bright August morning, his assistance was needed a young girl.
Television in the 1950’s created some of the best shows ever. Superman, a show based on a man who saves people 's lives without anyone knowing his true identity. And I Love Lucy, a wacky house wife who is trying to break through gender roles with her best friend. Even though their husbands are totally against them not following their roles. Also, in Leave It To Beaver, it focuses on a young boy who emphasizes that their are no perfect roles for genders.

For this Sociology On Screen assignment, I selected and analyzed the comedy movie, “Expelled”, directed by Alex Goyette and distributed by 20th Century Fox in the year of 2014. It all begins when Felix O 'Neil (Cameron Dallas), a troublesome teenager, gets expelled after recklessly pranking in Eastwood High School. He is a well-known prankster who rewired the fundraising money of the cheerleading team to a koala bear sanctuary, exposed incident photos of his teacher publicly, and hacked the vending machine and gave out free gums to his classmates. At first, he seems to be happy about his “early retirement”. Fearing that his parents will find out regarding his expulsion, Felix decides to falsify his report card so that his parents will not find
Pathos is another significant element in the film. Guggenheim shows pathos throughout by including Gores tragic life stories, word choice, and his various analogies. Guggenheim brings pathos into the film when Gore starts talking about his six-year-old son who was hit by a car chasing his friend across the street (25:50). This scene in the film allows the audience to feel sympathy towards Gore and allows the audience relate to Gore as some of the audience maybe parents. Gore then relates this story back to global warming by tying it in with how it changed everything in his life and he learned what was important to him.
In the commercial, the captain had to obtain a treasure hidden underwater. The hero, a diver, had to face many obstacles to reach it, and the commercial ended with a sunken ship almost crushing the hero, who determinedly uncovered the treasure and escaped. The connection between this commercial and the episode is striking; the audience, or the kids who watch Cartoon Network, are the same for both, and the episode’s lesson makes commercial more effective. Since the goal of the Lego Company is to make kids want to buy this set, they implement the values the kids just learned in Steven Universe to make a more convincing argument. The kids see the hero in the Lego commercial overcoming obstacles to achieve their goal and now know that they can also be heroes, even if they have flaws.
