This represents one of the actor’s career-best performances. Often, he has gotten by on charm and charisma. Here, he has to delve deep to bring out Deckard’s soul. (Berardinelli) Ford’s character Rick Deckard makes a late appearance in the film, when Agent K tracks down Deckard the story begins to unravel as truth rises to the surface. As a long-time fan of Harrison Ford, I found his aging gruff character highly entertaining, while one gets to see a little comedic relief as these two male leads battle it out on the screen.
To start, the down-on-his-luck actor Michael Dorsey is seen as a smooth talking, bright, and aggressive character, epitomizing a sense of masculinity from the start of the film. Some critics even goes as far as comparing Michael to Dustin Hoffman himself. This character is comprehensibly the easier of the two roles to act, but this doesn’t mean that there wasn’t an abundance of technique
As the protagonist, he does not manifest the entirety of a stereotypical hero because Odysseus has a fatal flaw—his arrogance. Fortunately, his wisdom progresses over his journey, showing his growth as a character. This change can be referred to as “Eagle Wings,” composes books IX, XII, XVII that highlight contrasting sides of Odysseus's self-restraint, and especially his development throughout the epic. The beginning of The Odyssey portrays Odysseus as a daring yet careless man. His pride leads to certain downfalls on his journey home.
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.
Comparing Two Dumb Comedies I love the movie genre that involves me to laugh and brings me happiness, so I will be comparing the film “Step Brothers” with the movie “Dumb and Dumber”. I chose these two movies because they are some of my favorite movies of all time; also the genre, comedy, is my favorite to watch. These movies interest me because they make some of funniest jokes with the funniest actors. These two actors, Will Ferrell and Jim Carrey, have been some of my favorite actors since I was a child. I could watch these movies over and over again and wouldn’t get tired of seeing it.
The main characters overall seem quite likable, Huck and Jim being the most well liked within the tale. Although this tale seems a tad far fetched it is an intriguing read. The plot seems impossibly unrealistic because it is incredibly difficult to envision a world where a teenage boy is able to fake his own death and live off of the bare minimum for such a long period of time. The obscure nature of this tale is actually what draws me to want to read it. I enjoy the Southern dialect utilized within the dialogue because it makes the novel authentic.
Don Pedro is introduced after having won a war, which shows his strength. However, he is also a fun-loving and observant leader. Prince Hal and Don Pedro are both clever, popular, capable rulers who are able to lead their people while still having fun of their own. As Henry IV opens, the king introduces his son by saying that “riot and
In both cases, the hero in fact only defeats the leader of the opposing force, but their friends are the ones who carry them to victory. This is a piece of something that has remained in American culture, if we all work together as friends, nothing is impossible. Friendship may seem like such an elementary concept to focus on, but it is proven over and over in film that it is key to
The book says, “I followed that performance with JFK in Killing Kennedy, which broke ratings records and earned me a Screen Actors Guild best actor nomination, and along with my work that year on Parks and Rec, I am happily able to say that I am an actor working at both edges of my range, in comedy and drama, as leading a man and as a character actor. To do that is every actor’s dream. Or should be”(37). The short sentence is used to emphasize what actor’s dreams should be and what Rob Lowe was able to do, which was break rating records. He uses the long sentences because he is piling details on details of his accomplishments.
I am in agreement with Krakauer on the fact that Chris McCandless was not a sociopath because he was intelligent, socialized very well, and was able to take care of himself, but he did have his flaws. Being able to be independent, his achievements and his friends all prove the “outcast bush causality” stereotype wrong. Since Chris was a human, he did have his faults. In some cases they were extreme, but they were rooted from an anger that makes it hard to label as “sociopath”. In the end, however, his stubbornness and tendency to dream big left him for dead.
