Overall, the film and book share many similarities but there are also many differences between the two The film of To Kill a Mockingbird has many strengths throughout its length. The movie goes over and covers all of the major plot points from the book. It covers the major scenes such as the jailhouse scene, when they break into the Radley property, the Tom Robinson trial, and of course when Bob Ewell attempts to kill Jem and Scout.
But as Perseus was passing by on his journey home from slaying Medusa, he saw the young maiden crying for help and instantly fell for her. Perseus bravely went towards the creature and using Medusa's head as a weapon, turned the creature into stone. He then saved Andromeda from her confinement and took her to his home to become his wife.(Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Perseus' action represents an act of heroism. Saving Princess Andromeda from a deadly sea creature took a huge amount of courage and was a danger to his own life. Perseus wasn't required to save her and could have died in the process, but did it nonetheless, earning the title as a hero and having the action being recognized as an act of heroism.
In popular media, a pirate is often viewed as violent and anarchical, never truly caring about who or how they hurt someone. This idea of a villainous pirate is often generated through fictitious or cautionary tales of pirates that are passed through society. This is not always the case though since, despite the case of pirates having these violent tropes associated with them, they are also able to manipulate the lexicon to give this persona and use it to recruit men. Through this manipulation of the lexicon, which the dictionary is able to show, the men are able to use regular seafaring phrases and commands to their benefit while also painting a picture of animalistic and warlike behavior into how they viewed by the people of the time and
Indeed, the ending of the story is based on the three girls concocting their escape through their intelligence and the cleverness of their words. For example, the two sisters - after being saved by the third girl, who also convinced the wizard to carry on his back a basket full of gold in addition to the other two sisters - repeat twice, from their hiding spot "I'm looking out my little window and I see that you're resting. Get a move on." (Grimms 195) in order to prevent the wicked sorcerer from resting.
Empathy is also key to the resolution of the intense, violent rivalry between these two young gangs. In the novel The Outsiders the harsh reality of social gaps, the paradox of honor among the lawless, and the need for empathy as a resolution for conflicts, are key elements to

Genre: The film that I analyzed was Slumdog Millionaire. The genre(s) that this film applies to are thriller, drama, and romance. It is considered to be a thriller because several criminal acts take place such as murder, robbery, and trafficking. Such moments in the film offer a "thrilling" effect because the viewer is eager to know, perhaps, the consequences and future outcomes that may come to be. Drama also falls in this category because of the exciting and unexpected events that take place during the plot.
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
ONLY A TEACHABLE HEART VIVIENNE J. WARNER CHALLENGE ENGLISH MRS. PEARSON MAY 18TH, 2016 As the creator of the 25 epic hero steps, Joseph Campbell said: “We must let go of the life we have planned to accept the one that is waiting for us” because every epic hero must put aside his own plans for his life to accept the one that was meant for him. In order to maintain the title of an epic hero, a champion must complete the hero's journey steps. The words from Joseph Campbell describe the journey of our once comfortable hobbit, Samwise Gamgee’s transition to becoming an epic hero in The Lord of the Rings as a epic hero must be willing to step out of something they are traditionally comfortable with.
