Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s creators emphasized carelessness and cowardice. The knights ran away in fear, killed innocent civilians, and argued over nonsense. Every component of this Arthurian Legend was twisted around in order to satirize the story. For example, Arthur’s battle with the Black Knight was an important component of the legend conveyed in a completely different light. The fight was hilarious rather than glorious.
This drama/thriller was very unique, “the way it shuffles from tone to tone – animated music video one second, unforgettably dark pastiche of a cheesy TV sitcom the next”. (Parker) It was probably the most controversial film of the 1990’s and one of the most underrated as well. This film has actually received more credit as time has passed. Oliver Stone’s message and overall theme was heard loud and clear after viewing this film. The movie was so powerful it even drove two men to kill and was caught up in a very controversial legal debate for many

The ransom red chief is a low level comedy because of the crude humor. The boy being mischievous and zany caused a lot of low comedy with the easy to follow storyline. “Red was sitting on bill’s chest with one hand holding his hair and the other a knife, a shriek came from old bill.” The boy was so small yet fierce that the reader wouldn't expect Sam to be so calm and handle everything like it is routine. “Bill let out a shriek.” Shows how the crazy situation made humorous with Bills over-the-top reaction. The crude humor used conveys that this was a low comedy.
The archetype I chose was The Evil Figure with Ultimately Good Heart which meaning is; a devil figure with the potential to be good, this person is usually saved by the love of the hero. This archetype has been represented by many movies, books, and video games. The archetype of The Evil Figure with Ultimately Good Heart is shown in the movie "Despicable Me" by Gru who is a cold-hearted man who 's only objective is to become the world 's greatest villain.

It also appears in Hades who is the king of the underworld ruler of the dead in Greek mythology.
Introductory Paragraph: In the movie “Suicide Squad”, produced by Charles Roven Richard Suckle, Deadshot (a.k.a Floyd Lawton) is a moody person and he is also known as a criminal and a dangerous, bad person, yet he still needs to fight crimes with his bad allies to save the world. He has superhuman accuracy with any weapon he touches and he is like a real life person. In the movie, he says “I don’t save people!” This refers to him being a bad person due to the fact he doesn’t use his special abilities to save people. Also, in the movie, he is having a peaceful conversation and someone interrupts him by saying “coward”, and he threatens that he will hit her by saying “I will knock you out, I don't care if you're a girl. This is an example of him being a moody guy.
“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”: a Timeless Story Forever Just then, Ichabod saw the ghost rise up and throw his head. It struck his head with a great crash and Ichabod went tumbling into the dust. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is a famous classic story about a schoolmaster Ichabod and his rivalry with Brom Van Brunt (a.k.a. Brom Bones). They live in the superstitious village of Sleepy Hollow, haunted by the Headless Horseman, and they fight to win over Katrina Van Tassel.
It is important to note that this supernatural being is one of Cain’s clan who was banished by the Creator for killing Abel. “Cain got no good from committing that murder/Because the Almighty made him anathema/And out of the curse of this exile there sprang /Ogres and elves and evil phantoms” (Heaney 109-12). In other words, monsters are created and ostracized on behalf of Cain’s action. Grendel is destined to be an atrocious demon, similar to the caste system where people are unable to move up a caste. Furthermore, the creature can be related to the character, Ralph, from the movie Wreck-It Ralph, where they both are rejected and mistreated only for being what they are.
… Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly. The monster was completely misunderstood and at no stage a welcome guest. In spite of his benevolent and kind spirit, he was beaten up and even shot at. No one was willing to attempt to understand him except for Agathe who was blind, but even that was short lived as Felix was quick to attack the creature. Although labelled as a horrifying monster, nothing but his exterior fit this description, until he was discriminated by society.
Not all knowledge is good knowledge and sometimes it can cause more harm than it does good. The final example is that loneliness can change human behavior. Victor puts together old human body parts to create new life. This monster he created is an eyesore and secluded from society. Growing increasingly angry at Victor, the monster goes off and kills William and frames Justine.
The movie is really horrible especially the scenario when Beowulf and Grendel fought each other. They are both naked because Beowulf wants to have a fair battle. But for me, it is still not fair since Grendel is a giant monster and Beowulf is just only small but vigorous man. I really like the climax of the movie which is the battle of Beowulf and the Serpent. It is really challenging especially
