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.

Rachel Lee Rubin’s Well Met, chronicles the history of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire, a cultural wellspring in 1960s Los Angeles. Through her research, Rubin shows the reader how the Faire affects our lives today politically, sexually, and culturally. The Faire is set in the time of the English Renaissance, when brilliant minds like Shakespeare began to write his work. One early attendee drew her own connection about the faires setting and the time that it was developed: “The Faire… had an intellectual focus on the history of an era of awakening from the Dark Ages (as we were awakening from the Dark Ages of McCarthyism) (Rubin 23). The Renaissance Faire was a hotspot for change in the United States, healthier body image was promoted, as was open sexuality, and the influence of some of the most famous entertainers of all time.

Ghostbusters, the 1984 supernatural-comedy is a true classic in the movie industry.

The original Ghostbusters movie has been a favorite for years, but on the contrary many people have claimed that the new movie was exciting and was a fresh retake on the original, lackluster movie. It can be said that the new movie was better than the original in many different and respectable aspects.
A masterpiece of creative act that instantly portrays the hypocrisy of the Victorian middle class, a Dolls House was written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879 a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as "the father of realism" and is one of the founders of Modernism in theatre.

The conflict of the story is driven by Nora’s forging of loan documents to raise money for an expensive trip to Italy; Krogstad, who had processed the loan, tries to blackmail Nora over the fact that she forged the documents. Nora who risked jeopardizing her husband’s image had set the tone throughout the play as the constant change in personality set the tone of the play which I have really enjoyed due to the unpredictable plot twists and a chance to be engaged with The Victorian culture at that time period.
This shows the present to which gives an introduction of where and how these two brothers started within the story. As the film is produced in the year 2000s, frankly speaking, its quality is way better than the past films that I have seen in class. Moreover, the effects were much more advanced and realistic wherein the connection with the audience is being enhanced. The film somehow relates with the first few films since it is historical and war-related which is the common theme used in the beginning. In addition, seeing the development of the films from the oldest up to now and seeing a film from another country in a different perspective of war, centralizing in a dramatic way helped me understand it even more and the comparison from its differences and similarities.
As dictators across the world took power, each had their set of skeletons hiding in the closet. Whether it helped them in the long run or not, experimentation couldn’t have been any more of a perfect timing. Easy to hide since everyone was busy with war, so the Japanese joined in on experimenting on humans as a way of science. Though the Nazi’s did take number one spot for the most brutal human experimentation, the Japanese was definitely in the number two spot. For 40 years, the Japanese was able to hide the experiment called Unit 731, or germ welfare.
