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.
Directed by Oliver Stone and story by Quentin Tarantino, Natural Born Killers is an amazing film that caught the world by surprise in August of 1994. This drama/thriller was very unique, “the way it shuffles from tone to tone – animated music video one second, unforgettably dark pastiche of a cheesy TV sitcom the next (featuring one of the greatest cameos in movie history by Rodney Dangerfield)” caught the attention of American popular culture. It also caught some unwanted attention as Oliver Stone was blamed for some copycat killers in the real world. Woody Harrelson fills the role of a delivery boy named Mickey Knox who falls in love with a customer, Mallory Wilson, played by Juliette Lewis. The couple hit the open road after Mickey helps Mallory kill her abusive parents.
Throughout the first half of the film viewers watch Paula fall in love with “Smithy”, a man who has no history or connection to his past. However, after being hit by a car, Smithy is reconnected with his past and regains his memory. It then becomes clear that he is actually a business tycoon named Charles who suffered from dissociative fugue(Seamon 166) and he is far different than the man Paula fell in love with. Nevertheless, with the return of his past, Charles abandons his life as Smithy: including his love for Paula. This return to his past is the source of trauma for Paula, and she is forced to watch the man she loves have no memory of their own romance, as well as almost marry another woman.
As I’ve already stated, this is a “Marvel Movie”. And that in itself is either really good or really bad. In this case, it’s not the latter. It actually depends on the kind of person you are, though. If you don’t like superheroes (The most popular film genre), ideas taken from Star Wars and Indiana Jones (some of the most memorable and most profitable film series of all time), and Marvel (one of the most profitable companies in the world) then I’m going to have to tell you otherwise.
In addition, as O’Brien continues to torture and manipulate Winston into believing that Big Brother means well, he stays strong and refuses.

Moreover, Hercules finally arrives in Mount Olympus, he plans on staying there until he sees Meg’s mood change as she begins to retreat back to earth.
Upon first glance, a movie about rock climbing sounded like a snooze fest; even worse, writing about it sounded like torture. However, after watching the movie that statement is the furthest thing from the truth. The movie Valley Uprising, entailed all the things that a box office hit would have. It was stimulating, exciting, and motivating. This documentary possessed all of the qualities of a must see movie.

As the Walls leave the pool Rex gives the same speech to Jeannette, except in the film the pool manager interrupts Rex asking if there is a problem. This sends Rex into a rage resulting in him assaulting the manager. The change in setting is effective because we see just how outrageous Rex’s behavior is viewed through the lens of normal parents. Rex’s character is an integral part of the story. His character is responsible for the outrage the reader feels towards the Walls parents abuse, but the reader also feels some kindred with Rex because, like Rex, the reader, too, wants to see the Walls children succeed and overcome the obstacles their parents have created.

If one is actually following the story line intently you inadvertently pay more attention to the details of the film. Pacific Rim captures the imagination with its impeccable graphics and never ending action scenes that keep you entertained throughout the films entirety. There have been many films released in the past several years and that are still being released today that involve battles between man-made machines and people against giant creatures of earth and also alien creatures such as, Cowboys and Aliens (2011), The Avengers (2012), Avatar (2009), Godzilla (2014), and many more. While these films are similar to Pacific Rim in areas, this Guillermo Del Toro film has exceeded the expectations for a Sci-Fi film
