It shows two different societies, the society of the Bushmen and that of the civilized society. There was no doubt that a lot of cultural differences exist between the two societies. The movie begins with the comparison between the two societies. It talks about how the Bushmen who lives in the Kalahari Desert are independent and content with the live that they are living. This tribe makes use of everything that surrounds them.
Society admired bushmen as they saw them as heroes that work hard and pioneered the land. They were independent and took no notice of authority figures while seeking equality amongst each other. The most common types of bushman were: the explorers, shearers, goldminers and drovers. The bushman stereotype has been portrayed in the movie ‘Crocodile Dundee’.
Such as the time when they met with the blood cult member, the man used the last bullet in their gun to kill the cannibal cult member and escape from death. The man and boy fight for survival because they believe there are other survivors, the man is motivated to protect his son, the man has an unexplainable will to live, and he wants what is best for the boy. The man and the boy work together to get through the difficulties of traveling and find ways to stay alive. It is worth the man and the boy to fight for survival because they find many reasons to
The author’s diction is a reflections of the superiority the man had over the self-defensive snake. When the man first saw the “ six-foot black snake thick as my wrist” and observed that “felt no necessity of getting out of anybody’s path” he felt the need to “show my intentions”. The snake was aware of his strength and wanted the man to know that. Therefore he didn 't feel the need to move for the stranger. Following their first encounter the man would “have been well content” to leave him alone because taking “life is a satisfaction I can’t feel” but knowing he has a farm to take care of, he had“ kill the snake”.
He says he is not part of this world that he was set on this world as a stranger. He sets himself apart from woman and nature.”(1) Griffin explains how women are spiritually associated with nature more than man. Images of nature 's cycles and systems recur throughout the novel. In addition to animal imagery, birds, pigs, turtles, and horses are often used to explain the predator-prey relationship with human behaviour. The book suggests that sometimes human beings act out of a survival instinct to protect themselves and their families.
When faced with a potentially dangerous animal, one must decide if they should attack the animal before it attacks them. In the short story “The Rattler”, a man is walking close to his ranch when he encounters a rattlesnake. He is faced with the decision of whether he should kill the snake to keep the people around the ranch safe or let it go, ultimately deciding to kill the snake. Through diction and tone, the author makes the reader feel as though the snake should have lived through sympathy for the snake. Throughout the story, the author uses strong word choice to indicate that the snake did nothing wrong.
He goes on to say his “duty, plainly, was to kill the snake,” this being supported by his initial intentions to only kill an animal he was “obliged to kill.” In addition, using the point of view to provide intuition further instills the man’s justification of duty over personal values. When the man “reflected that there were children, dogs, horses at the ranch, as well as men and women lightly shod,” he feels a natural obligation to protect them, even if it went against his values. Towards the end, the man acknowledges if he had followed his moral value the outcome would’ve been significantly different, for both the man and the snake. Additionally, the man states he “did not cut off the rattles for a trophy,” expressing his guilt for killing the snake and depicting that the act of killing was more like a duty rather than a sport to him. From attention to detail to point of view, these qualities supplement the overall theme of balancing personal duty and moral values.
The Huntsman Winter’s War movie, in the beginning, it was prequel and finally was sequel of Snow White and the Huntsman. In reviewer’s perspective, the plot passed quite slowly and boring. It takes longer to reach the highlight scene. The movie has to be chased long before the relatives are broken, jump over to create a new kingdom. The Queen came up to build up the huntsman, finally love makes a lost hunter.
The Gods Must Be Crazy explores the three types of economies: traditional, command, and market, through the stories of the Bushmen (traditional economy), Sam Boga and his men (command economy), and the lifestyle of the modern part of South Africa (market economy). The theme of scarcity is prevalent throughout the entirety of the film. Scarcity is the state of something being in short supply. Scarcity is first seen when the Coca-Cola bottle is dropped from the airplane into the territory of Xi and the Bushmen living space. Before the Coca-Cola bottle was introduced to the Bushmen, their lives were positive and trouble-free.
The Bushmen live in smaller groups of 25 or so within larger social networks of around 500 people. Social relationships, including those between men and women, are fairly egalitarian. Disputes abound among the Bushmen-over mates, hunting rights, perceived slights. Every man has in his possession a bow and poison-tipped arrows that doom the victim to a lingering and agonizing death. Without central government, what is there to stop every serious dispute from escalating to deadly violence and even war between different bands?
