A Hero’s Journey is a Monomyth that was created by Joseph Cambell. This is a cycle that was made to show how the cycle goes when there is a hero in a story. The cycle can be applied to basically any journey or hero story. The Hero’s Journey plays a role in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope, the phases that is follows is call to adventure, supernatural aid, meeting the goddess, atonement with the father, and the ultimate boom. The first phase, call to adventure, is where the hero receives information to head off into the unknown.
THE SENTINEL AND 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY Have you ever wondered the existence of qualified creatures from outer space? If your answer is “Exactly!”, here are the masterpieces of the science fiction stories referring to genius aliens: “The Sentinel” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”. “The Sentinel” is a story written by British writer Arthur C. Clarke in 1948. The story is about an astrogeologist’ s discovery of a construction beyond mankind on the surface of the moon. The other piece of art, “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the science fiction movie by Stanley Kubrick.
However, both will be remembered for their legacies – Odysseus in the Iliad and Odyssey, Cam in the Raine room (Auburn hall of awards) – and for performing miraculous feats for the something greater than themselves. A few years ago, in Latin class, we studied the Hero’s Journey. We examined the Odyssey and Star Wars, comparing the main characters and their plotlines. After the unit, we recognized all notorious
David’s challenges include having to “ put in some careful planning to hide our [David, Rosalind and Petra’s] tracks.” (Wyndham 125)along with outsmarting the search parties multiple times. Eragon on the other hand had to fight battles against tougher enemies, endure hard training from his companion Brom and learn to use magic, all while pursuing the Ra’ zac. They both have similar “sacred marriages” with other’s. Somewhat like David and Rosalind, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, can communicate telepathically. The return is similar for both of them.
The NASA Moon Landing Conspiracy The conspiracy of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, Moon Landing has been around for decades. Ever since this event occurred in 1969, there has been speculation. The world watched the live T.V broadcast in awe as Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the surface of the Moon. People brought the belief of film making to the landing, the pictures sent back from Apollo 11 were found unruly, and when the crew returned to Earth their reactions to the skeptics were validated with their hesitant responses to the events. The future of space exploration will have forever changed from this moment on.
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
We befriended the Cherokee and a couple other dangerous tribes though in defence of their tactics. In the American war many of the Natives sided with the British to try and defeat the colonists and regain their lands. In this time western Pennsylvania and New York became savage battlegrounds. After the defeat of the British the newly set boundaries for America ensured that their would be more and more
This is noted by Juan Alcázar and Gerardo Rodríguez (2013), who single out Fallout’s usage of 1950s music as a cultural reminder that the progress of western civilization has come to a standstill. The Middle Ages is typically perceived to be a cultural standstill between Roman and Renaissance civilization and this trope is used to similarly denote the post-apocalyptic world of the Fallout videogames. This idea is repeated by Diletta De Cristoforo (2013), who argues that post-apocalyptic stories, particularly the Jim Crace novel The Pesthouse invoke an image of the medieval to create a post-apocalyptic United States with a ‘neo-medieval atmosphere’, filled with superstition, pestilence and insecurity. However, the Fallout videogames also contain considerable nostalgia towards the 1950s period, similar to how both nostalgic and dark images of the Middle Ages can exist in a single product. In a sense, the post-apocalyptic world of the Fallout videogames can thus be seen as a good analogue to depictions of the medieval
The hero’s journey describes the pattern of a story that is seen in myths, drama, fantasy and others. It includes specific archetypes that create that pattern . Without the majority of these archetypes, the story could not be defined as thus. Star Wars: A New Hope is a classic example of the hero’s journey. Luke is the hero, while the others play essential archetypal characters.
The fighter jolted as a torpedo was launched, a series of loud explosions were then heard, signaling the destruction of the deadly station, the Death Star. This scene from Star Wars: A New Hope can be interpreted differently when crossing through different versions. Three of these mediums, Doescher’s play, a radio drama, and the screenplay of this movie will be compared and contrasted, revealing the uniqueness of each interpretation. By the end of this essay, the similarities and differences between the radio drama, play, and screenplay will be revealed, ultimately proving that the play is the best medium. Between the screenplay, play, and radio drama, there are many similarities.
