Star Trek shows the theme of exploration and the consequences (good or bad) of interference with other worlds and cultures. Both series also display societies of many different flora and fauna, spread across many planets. The galaxy in both series are under one rule. The United Federation of Planets in Star Trek are a group of planetary governments who agreed to assemble under a single central authority in a Utopian manner. In the Star Wars universe, the ruling goes from the Old Republic, which later became the Galactic Empire, and the reformed into the New Republic.
Ideology The movie that I have chosen to analyze is the 2004 film Crash. This film emphasizes the intertwining cultures of today 's society and the conflicts faced from class, culture, stereotypes and racism. The explicit content of this film is to teach the audience that one person 's choices has an impact on another person or multiple people and to persuade the audience that we as a society need to change how we treat each other. The films overt message does generate social dialogue, however, this film can be interpreted by the audience through their own beliefs and behaviors causing some misinterpretation. In Crash, ideology is screaming that the audience needs to open their eyes to the harsh reality of today 's challenges and make a change.
When I was asked to write about an instance of intercultural communication in a movie, Arrival was not the first thing that came to mind. However, once I had thought about it, I could not get it out of my head, and I knew I had to write about it. The reason behind my determination was that though the parties involved in the conflict are unusual—humans versus extraterrestrial beings—, Arrival still addresses very important issues that could arise during any intercultural communication.

While doing so, it will also briefly touch upon the communicational issues within the human community, caused by the different frameworks through which they look
Ray Bradbury uses symbols such as technology, firemen, and hounds to show censorship and how the government controls the people. In illustration, the author uses Television censorship to develop the thought that feeding people thoughts and not letting them think for themselves is censoring them from the truth about the rest of the world and society. Mildred explains her reasoning for not wanting to turn off the tv: ‘“ Will you turn the parlor off?’That's my family’” ( Bradbury 46 ). Mildred expresses her own intimate feelings toward the
Hitchcock who had been influenced by an American journalist Otis. C. Guernsey, makes several references to the cold war in his film. The most notable reference in the neo-noir film is when Roger had stated; "If you fellas can 't lick the Vandam 's without asking girls like her (Eve) to bed down with them, fly away and never come back alive, then maybe you better start learning to lose a few cold wars". (shmoop,2018) In this scene, Thornhill objects to the lengths that Vandam goes in violating Eve 's safety, just to gain crucial information that will benefit other people. The scene at Vandam 's house, just before the climactic scene at Mount Rushmore, all the more delineates Eve 's character, as one that is under prominent threat with Vandam.
The relationship between language and power within The Handmaids Tale will be used over the course of the novel to further convert and condition the society of Gilead to follow it’s theocratic ideologies through fear and intimidation. Furthermore, protagonist Offred will continue to reflect on and argue the beliefs of the new United States throughout the text in attempts to hold onto the world she knew before; not allowing the republic to take control of who she is now and erase who she was. This malicious regime, intimidates this former egalitarian society into following inhuman practices and regulations through the introduction of social institutions such as “The Eye” and “The Guardians” (Atwood, 17,20).
