When I was ten, I went on a boy scout camping trip, and got lost. For two hours, I was stuck in the forest with only a water bottle, three granola bars, and a whistle. But this is nothing compared to what Mark Watney faces during his fight for survival on Mars. Mark Watney (engineer and botanist of Ares 3) with his crew of five other people (Beck, Martinez, Vogel, Lewis, and Johanssen), is on Mars, left behind by his crew on accident after a strong wind storm. The crew leaves him behind after presuming him dead, and take the MAV (Mars Ascent Vehicle) with them. As author Andy Weir describes Mark Watney’s epic fight for survival, some important themes that pop up very frequently are fearfulness, perseverance, and interplanetary isolation. Andy Weir, an extraordinary author and programmer, sure knows how to include elements such as suspense and sarcasm in his books very efficiently.
In his “Draw My Life” video, he talks about what he went through when he was younger. He lived a “dark” early adult life, from getting kicked out of his house to his father dying from cancer. Also, about two years ago Mark posted a video called “Lost a Friend”, which he explains that his friend, Daniel Kyle, had passed away. Daniel had passed away from attempted suicide, which did cost his life in the end. All of Mark's friends went through this tragedy, but they somehow pulled back together in the end.
Even a normal, average college teenager can turn into a monster in the right circumstances. This movie has been the hardest hitting movie i have watched to date. When it started, it seemed like a good experiment that might have some interesting developments. By the end of the movie, I had a sick feeling in my stomach. After watching the movie, I do look a little more into the experiment.
While discussing Usher II of The Martian Chronicles, various themes arise from the chapter. When analyzing the deeper message of this chapter, themes such as censorship as well as the struggle between government restrictions and personal freedom are things to consider. In addition to these more major themes, minor ones such as the power of creative thinking and how it can be used against the ignorance of some should also be considered.
A nation formed from the blood of an entire culture. The Revisionist Western Film, Geronimo, (1993) by director Walter Hill, sheds light on various events leading up to the migration of Whites to the Midwest, and the conflicts that ensued between the Apaches and the migrants, the latter of which will eventually claim victory in unifying the United States from East to West. This film establishes the notion that everyone should have the right to liberty and freedom of choice, no matter the race, and reveals the great lengths and sacrifices that one makes in the face of injustice and oppression.
“Arrival” is a mystery, sci-fi drama directed by Denis Villeneuve in his wonderful betrayal of the unknown.’Arrival’ digs deep into the unexpected, when a bunch of alien vessels land in 12 different spots on earth, leaving everyone curious about what their intent on earth is.
It gives such an in depth perspective of someone who suffers from this disease, and shares it in a way that makes others understand it; rather than judge like many people are prone to do. Frankie and Alice also shows that with the help of others, it is possible to somewhat defeat this disorder, by cohabitating with the alter egos. This movie gave all of us an interesting insight to the world of those who have DID, and it is a movie each person should
The Martian Us as teenagers may at the first look at the movie The Martian and think its science related. The Martian is about these five astronauts that go to Mars, after they are there for awhile a huge storm happened. An antenna goes through one of the members Mark and he died. At least that 's what they thought. The rest of the members leave Mars.
Mark states, ¨When my mother began dropping hints that I would soon be going to school, I vowed never to go because school was a waste of time¨ (1). As his story goes on you see his mindset change. From him stepping foot into tribal school and meeting the Principal, to him getting the news his father had beaten his mother ferociously. Anger being built up inside of him.
Ultimately though, Mark appears sullen and sleepy, he has a more insane personality about him. Mark is also a malicious character. A good example would be when Mark is telling Susan about how to start a house on fire. I believe he does this so he can make Susan panic, not think straight. He makes her think ideas of what he’s going to do.
The Revenant is a novel by Michael Punke originally published in 2002. Punke’s story is one of history, and it has been previously adapted into a movie in 1971 titled, Man in the Wilderness. All media and book did not stick to the original historical figure of Hugh Glass. Most recent adaptation in 2015 by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Despite the fact that the movie was made famous based on inaccuracy of the actual true story, it still presents wonderful cinematography. There are many strays from the true story of Glass and the factious character in Punke’s novel. To start with, the setting of the true story was not of mountainous landscapes, it was mostly flat terrain. The events occur in the summertime, but the movie depicts them in winter. Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre.
First it seems to me that Mark starts to understand how he could get each of hit students to write, but the staff at juvenile hall doubted mark thinking he made the inmates feel special and wont be able to get them to write. I believe mark gained confidence from being doubted and underestimated from the staff. Mark knows what was better for the students
The Revenant is a splendid and inspiring story that does not give a minute to withdraw eyes while the film is playing. This movie presents drastically new meaning to man-versus-nature drama, to a greater extent, because of the brilliant acting performance of Leonardo DiCaprio. The Revenant was directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu who, after the majestic success of Birdman in 2014 found an inspiration in the less civilized area, specifically, North America of the 1820s. The shooting took place in rough, freezing conditions and, what is more, most productions shoot for twelve hours a day minimum. Iñárritu and director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki were forced to shoot in a more fractured manner due to the creative choices made, notably shooting
