Despite his hyperbolic vision of nuclear chaos, Kubrick’s underlying criticism of cold war politics and ideologies proves to be brilliant for those who can take his dark humor in stride. Underneath all of the absurdity and melodrama, Kubrick is prompting viewers to seriously ask themselves what would happen if any
This just shows the dangerous side of the human being: of how a person is rather excited about the thought of getting into battle and things that he would normally have found repulsive and cruel to the point of being reckless about his own safety. When doing the same things over and over, it becomes routine, and you can trick yourself into feeling indifferent. “His face was the face of a student – thin and ascetic, but his eyes had the cold gleam of the fanatic. They were deep and thoughtful, the eyes of a man who is used to looking at death”. (Line 7-10, page 1) He is just a normal young man although he is a fighter in the civil war.
Hardly anyone seemed to notice him” (pg. 240 online).This description could have been dwindled down to just talk about the fact that there was a dead body, but instead Amir goes into great detail to describe and paint a picture of what the body looked like. Hosseini constantly to uses these moments to go into detail to show that negativity is key to the story. In many these cases something major happens to Amir and it cause him to change or have a realization so it furthers the text and the plot line. Throughout The Kite Runner Hosseini uses the awful things that happen to Amir, the surprising changes that Afghanistan suffers through and morbid diction to show the theme of negativity that drive the plot.
In his own right, you know, he has a great deal of character.” This choice indicates that Rodwell is not as naive as one might assume he is. While he is blindsighted by the cruelty of those in war, he soon acknowledges this new reality, and in doing so, takes his own life. By joining the military, Rodwell knowingly submitted himself to situations that would almost certainly compromise his own happiness. It is not until he sees men in the trenches killing for pleasure as opposed to necessity that he is driven beyond the point of no return, alluding to the true nature of his character as an individual who places the happiness of others, including animals, above his own interests. In direct opposition of Rodwell, another important character, Barbara d’Orsey, acts in a manner that places her own needs above those of others around her.

In the book Fallen Angels Walter Dean Myers tells the story of soldiers who struggles with a problem involving what is right and wrong in war. Fallen Angels set in Vietnam during the Vietnam war, the story introduces the main character Perry, who faces obstacles, including death and killing. The author’s use of literary devices, specifically imagery, irony, and metaphors convey the theme warfare often forces soldiers to reconsider their traditional notions of right and wrong. The author employs imagery to express the theme that warfare often forces soldiers to reconsider their traditional notions of right and wrong. The author writes, “Sergeant Simpson took a grenade, pulled the pin, and threw it into the opening as hard as he could.” (page number 125) This shows that no matter who was down there he was willing to have them die to win this battle.
The war happening outside Devon represents the external and internal conflicts between the characters. An example is Gene’s inner conflict with jealousy when he says, “I was beginning to see that Phineas could get away with anything. I couldn't help envying him that a little, which was perfectly normal. There was no harm in envying even your best friend a little” (Knowles 25). Here, Gene is trying to justify his envy towards Finny, which could represent the justification of calamities in war.
Odysseus is perceived as the most cunning of men due to the many tales about him in the Trojan wars. This image of cunning continues to show at times during his early challenges; in these challenges Odysseus gradually proceeds to display his shortcomings. Once a trial becomes personal towards him, he neglects his cunning and becomes a spineless revenge seeker. It is clear that while dealing with the Cyclops Odysseus holds his cunning nature intact as well as beginning to shed light on his tragic flaw. While his men were being caged by the Cyclops, Odysseus re-introduces his cunning nature with the strategic plan he devised in order to free his men.
Past Martin was a really rowdy boy. He liked to pull pranks on people and also liked to boast about his popularity. This is demonstrated when he pranked the officer. “Just trying to help, Officer”. The comma in between the words ‘help’ and ‘officer’ transmits the audience a pause; therefore that implies that Martin is being sarcastic in the way that he does not consider the officer a member of authority so he shows disrespect towards him.
Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Richmond Valentine, drips with this campy humor with his awkwardness, heavy lisp, and fear of blood while still keeping up the image of the bad guy trying to ‘fix’ the world with blood and violence. In his review of “Kingsman”, Peter Debruge said the film “brings the irreverence back to the British spy genre, offering a younger, streetwise variation on the 007 formula while gleefully pushing audiences’ favorite elements – sartorial taste, killer toys, and cracked out supervillains – to hyperbolic extremes” (Debruge, 2015) which are aspects that help create all the campy humor seen in the film. Director Michael Vaughn wanted this film to be modernly irreverent and fun through its campiness just like the classic Bond films throughout the 60’s and 80’s. Both the old James Bond films and “Kingsman” make light of the spy genre they fit into and make it fun without too much seriousness. The Kingsman agents and their gadgets are a direct call to the days of classic Bond.

This shows just how real and how traumatizing these events can be. However, the connection between the two highlights the fact that war leads to poverty as well as PTSD. Throughout every major war, once the soldiers have returned it has been increasingly hard for them to start their life
