Racial stereotypes in films has occurred among people of color through characters, especially black. This has made challenges in opportunities, leading to a prevalence of stereotypes and lack of diversity on-screen, and they have also come a long way with many perspectives in the movie industry. The motion industry have had long history and criticism for its racially casting options since it has a significant role in a mass dissemination across the globe to audiences in every generation and have affected people’s belief systems. However, since a development in technologies and people’s perception, several modern filmmakers have already started to change the old stereotypes to be diverse and more positive.

Sad-frown. Use corresponding face with corresponding emotion (French Kiss, 1995) 5 Princess Anne 5 Kate 6 Joe Bradley 7 Luc Tessier 7 Side characters: 8 Gender studies 8 Conclusion 9 Abstract This article presents the roles of a man and a woman in two different eras through two movies: Roman Holiday (1953) and French Kiss (1995). The focus is on the analysis of the characters, their differences and similarities and messages directors wanted to send considering gender roles in society during the 1950s and 1990s. The method is to make the structure of the essay similar to the structure of filmmaking and pay attention to many elements and symbols that influenced the viewers, consciously or unconsciously.
In today’s society, we learn about many things, including ourselves, in the media, primarily through television and movies. We learn about what we dislike, what we like, what scares us, and mostly how the media portrays someone who is male, female, transgender, etc.. According to Aulette and Wittner (2012), “Television is a primary source of images of gender. Gender can be portrayed in a range of ways, but two kinds of images are dominant: hegemonic masculinity and emphasized femininity” (pg. 397). Atomic Blonde is an action packed movie with main character Charlize Theron kicking ass and taking names, literally.
Hearing the various different questions, and having to make a few questions myself, that connected the readings to the film helped me see more connections that weren’t initially there after only having watched the film. Having Connell’s definition of hegemonic masculinity helped me place the hegemonic characteristics the film describes but does not define, into the discussion in order to better focus on more specific theory rather than simply on broader ideas presented in the movie. This more defined definition helped me place the issues described in the film into theory that explains how these issues come about, and how we can better
Hollywood is the home of flashing cameras, the famous red carpet, and glamorous celebrities. Hollywood is also the birthplace of extraordinary films which reach audiences across the world. The casting choices made by the film industry affects more than just the movie that is created. Hollywood directors and writers should have the social responsibility to avoid stereotyping ethnic characters because the stereotypes offer poor (and often inaccurate) insight into the culture, negatively impacts child viewers, and limits the amount of quality roles for actors/actresses with diverse ethnic backgrounds.
The Maltese Falcon, a film categorised as Film Noir and The Searchers, a Western genre film, are both from different genres but both reinforce and challenge dominant social and cultural beliefs and values throughout each film. Each genre can be broken down into; codes, conventions and narrative conventions. Codes are aspects of the text that help the audience make meaning.
The artistic choices made in the production of cinema have a great impact on the way the audience will perceive certain aspects of the performance. One director may choose to highlight a certain scene, while another director may push it aside as trivial. A majority of the symbolism behind theatre lends itself to open interpretation, but some underlying messages have a widely accepted truth. In Nicholas Hytner’s 1996 interpretation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, lighting and camera angles help accentuate the importance of particular moments throughout the film. I chose to analyze the courthouse scene in which Deputy Danforth asks Elizabeth whether or not John Proctor committed the crime of adultery.
Presenter: Hi. Today I am going to be talking about how Muslims have been depicted in Hollywood after the events of 9/11. [PROJECTOR: IMAGES of the films that I have researched, fading in one by one as I am introducing them.] The films that I have chosen for my research are Iron Man (1), The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2), Zero Dark Thirty (3) and Argo (4).
In this paper, I will be critiquing these articles and films in order to evaluate the purpose of these readings and how they have helped further develop race in America. But most importantly, whether the author has achieved its purpose to inform readers about CRT, whiteness, and racial inequality. First article, I will be analyzing is Critical Race Theory: An Introduction by Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic. Both authors explore Critical Race Theory in detail. As I previously mentioned, CRT is one of the most important developments mainly in the legal studies department.
I will find the specific incidences of these taboo subjects across the many series and movies. From there I will research the public’s reactions to these episodes and what the current standards for appropriate subjects for public discussion were at the time. I will research what sociologist, psychologist, and writers have taken away from the expression of these sexual themes in the show. I will find what the actors who portrayed these controversial character believe was the purpose of their characters were. Finally, I plan to try to find any specified changes in the American peoples understanding of these issues and look for any real world consequences of these issues being discussed on television.
Gender stereotypes were also omnipresent in television shows, which inevitably intensified exposure to images of inequality. However, television started changing in the 1970s and 1980s,
The late 1950's and early 1960's was a time of recovery, civil rights, and NASA. The Great Space Race between America and Russia was at its peak, both powers struggling to send men into space and later to the moon. However, Russia seems to be steadily approaching the finish line while America lags behind To complete the task, NASA will need math that doesn't exist yet, and mathematicians who can invent that math. Taraji P. Henson as west NASA computer Katherine Johnson and her two friends, Dorothy Vaughan (played by Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (played by Janelle Monae) can complete the task and more. Each of their special traits of a mathematician, mechanic, and engineer (respectively) are needed in different parts of NASA to do the job and help America emerge as the victor of the Great Space Race.
