It could be said that he is not a hero because after he defeats Polyphemus, he yells to him, “If I could take your life I would and take your time away, and hurl you down to hell! The god of earthquake could not heal you there!”(479-481). By saying this, he was challenging a god and belittling Poseidon's power, which does not aline with Greek values. Still, this does not make Odysseus less of a hero. What he said was wrong, but he was punished and he changed his ways.

In comparison, in Revenge of the Sith, Anakin realized that Obi-Wan Kenobi is now a threat because he did not support Anakin’s new power. When Padme brought Obi-Wan Kenobi to talk to Anakin about his new power, Anakin asked if Obi-Wan Kenobi was with Anakin on his side. Anakin wondered why Obi-Wan Kenobi was against him and Obi-Wan Kenobi said “Your anger and your lust for power have already done that”(Star Wars). Therefore, since Anakin was so devoted to gaining his power, it turned even his best friend against him because of the
Through this ordeal, Spunk is forever changed for this is the moment that caused him to open up something that fear would take control over. He learns that although he was strong and could easily kill Joe, he himself would ultimately be his own downfall. Joe is the antagonist even though he is the weaker one between himself and Spunk. Joe knows that his beloved wife Lena has the hots for Spunk, but he has absolutely no intention of getting her back. There is even a full paragraph on the first page that explains his feelings on the situation.
As he watches his loved ones get murdered by the creature he created, he realizes that playing God is a dangerous game. One could argue that Victor starts off with these negative traits but then develops Justine’s traits like selflessness, bravery, and acceptance. While I do think he achieves these feelings as he progresses, I believe he only scratches the surface of what it means to truly be selfless or brave. He only develops these qualities because his irresponsible actions cause the death, directly or indirectly, of five people. Yes, he accepts his actions at some point, but he does so because of extreme circumstances.
Fear even comes into the eyes of everyone of Darth Vader’s pawns on the Executor (Darth Vader’s Head ship). One specific example of this is in ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope’, the backtalk of one of his commanders was unacceptable to Vader so he used the force to choke and almost kill him. We see in several other cases where Darth Vader does actually kill his followers because they don’t succeed in following his directions. Through these occurrences one can safely presume that Darth Vader’s power is mainly obtained by fear. Darth Vader, however,is compelled by hate rather than fear.
Mads 1STE – essay about the movie Crash 2 Lastly, I do also think that the characters in Crash are too heavily influenced by their prejudices, especially compared to the modern US. This is primarily due to the fact that it in many ways feels like the roles are defined by their existing or non-existing bias, which certainly feels unrealistic. This is especially true for one character in particular, which throughout the movie goes from good to bad. Tommy Hansen, a young police officer, ends up killing an African American at the end of the movie, despite showing no racial bias earlier on in the story. There seem to be multiple reasons for this murder, but none of them were really substantial enough to commit a murder.
Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption. Also, in Hard Boiled, one of the main characters says that everything ends except war. Moreover, the movies includes harsh justice criticism because event the protagonist is a policeman, he does not obey the authority and he defends that killing a person for revenge will secure the justice. For example, authorities criticized the policeman in The Killer for that. Nevertheless he killed the antagonist at the end of the movie and got his revenge.
But no more sights!—Where are these gentlemen? Come, bring me where they are(4.1.155-163)”, showed Macbeth 's mental health had officially diminished. By not only his hallucinations, however, his consistent mindset in removing anyone who stood in his of his ambition. Other scenes such as, Macbeth going into the battle with Macduff without his armor as result of him believing himself to be somewhat, “godly”, and the belief that could not be defeated are other examples of how his greed and ambition lead to his death in his mental stability. Overall, Macbeth was truly a tragic hero whose gradual growth in greed for power resulted in not only losing loved ones and his consciousness yet also resulting in his death.Greed and Ambition is a vital theme that notably influenced Macbeth’s mental deterioration.
The formidable power and influence overawe the last humanity. When people are facing the same difficulty in the society, what will they have great expectations of the society? Outbreaking in silence or die in silence, which one he will choose? He is going to call up all his courage to against the power as a hero for a few seconds, or perhaps he will silent as the grave and endure the miserable life. Winston, he has conquest Big Brother in mentally.
Sex is unquestionably the key political issue in 1984 (Baruch 345).” The totalitarian government is all about complete control and total power over their people. Orwell shows the daily struggle of Winston and his sexual thoughts that he has to try to refrain from. Whenever he sees that attractive dark haired girl, he cannot contain himself and almost bursts with pleasure. The sexual oppression has built up inside him over the years and he is willing to go to great lengths to get it out. It slowly destroys Winston’s mind and starts to drive him mad and this is exactly what Orwell wants the audience to understand.
