Most Important Person in U.S. History “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” One of the many amazing quotes by an amazing woman. Marilyn Monroe was one of the most iconic model, musician, and actress of all time. Marilyn Monroe is still looked up to today and still inspires millions of people. Marilyn was born June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California.
There are a couple of heroines who undoubtedly defy the tired conventions, among them there are Alice from Resident Evil, Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, The Divergent Tris Prior, and Wonder Woman. Taking a closer look at the given movie examples, men are ever-present and even outnumber women, however,
They put the audience in a tricky position: although they are presented with despicable people, somehow they get charmed by the femme fatale and sympathize with the protagonist who performs the amoral actions for her. As we can see, film noir had a positive response from the audience of the time and still continues to fascinate film scholars today. Is the film noir a genre? This is one of the most contentious issues in film theory.
Number Three: Abigail Breslin Is Addicted to Horror Abigail has always had a strong passion for movies (if that isn’t obvious), but reveals that she has a special weakness for horror movies. Being her favorite movie genre, Abigail reveals that she gets so into this type of film that she could spend hours gushing over and getting into heated arguments about the plotline. Number Two: Her Major Crush Just like many of the young women who grew up at the same time as Abigail, she admits that her near-obsessive celebrity crush is Zac Efron.
Sunset Boulevard is a classic black comedy/drama, the most acclaimed, but darkest film noir story about Hollywood and what happens behind the scenes written by Billy Wilder. It shows the true deceitfulness, emptiness, the price of fame, greed, narcissism, and ambition it really takes to be an actor or actress during the 1950’s in Hollywood. Norma Desmond was one of the main characters and she showed viewers how easily they can perceive their characters on screen for their real life and get them twisted. In the 1950’s fans of the film wanted the actors to be just as perfect as they appeared on screen. The classic, tragic film was highly regarded at its time, honored with eleven Academy Award nominations and the recipient of three Oscars: Best
Everyone Loves Lucille Ball Some famous Americans have won the noble peace prize, while others might be known for creating world peace or world catastrophes. Lucille Ball will forever be remembered as the person who entertained people with “rubber faced antics (“Lucille Ball Biography”) “zany impersinations.” These comments may seem demeaning; however, they glorifiy Lucille Ball’s legacy.
2 Broke Girls achieved great success shortly after the first season aired in 2011. The show became a hit for CBS; however, six seasons later, 2 Broke Girls hasn’t maintained the same successful ratings it once accomplished, likely due to heavy criticism of the show’s writers and their tasteless attempts at comedy. Several critics agree that co-creators Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings rely too heavily on immature, uninspiring comedy that perpetuates racial stereotypes. The supporting characters are basically walking racial stereotypes.
Grey’s Anatomy has been one of the most popular shows on network television since 2005. While most critics and fans agree that the first three seasons were the shows best, the storylines in the later seasons have still been able to add new and progressive ideas into the forefront of the show. The biggest change in storyline is when they introduced their first LGBTQ-identifying main character, Callie Torres. The lesbian and bisexual characters that GA presents in both comedic and dramatic formats allow for the audience to become enthralled with a new romantic relationship between women that has not often been discussed. Callie’s character has made a major transition in the show from being the straight rich girl who cannot survive without having a romantic relationship to hold onto, to the complex, strong, and hysterical bisexual character that is able to stand up for herself with no essential need for a significant other.
Roeder. They both had a way to them that made you look twice and know that they were the important characters of the story. Grace was the heroine and Mr. Roeder was almost like the villain, polar opposites but when placed together gave incredible performances. Grace’s actor, Amelia, gave her all to the performance and you could tell. She kept up when Grace started to have to limp, even when leaving the stage in the dark.
Good, then let’s get spooky. Mazes: Of all of the mazes from last years Horror Fest, it seems many thought that, “The Walking Dead” was the best and scariest experience. This might have to do with the fact that it is a permanent exhibit, thus they have more in-depth features and better technology invested into the maze. But reviews are mixed, and each person's experience seems to be different depending on the actors they ran into. It sounds like all of the mazes were a great success and will definitely carry on for many years of Horror Nights!

SL Deaf Event Quarter 1 For my first quarter Deaf Event, I read the book I'll Scream Later by Marlee Matlin. The book reflects on the highs and lows of Marlee's life from the time she was a young child, up until a few years before she joined Switched at Birth, one of her more famous roles among modern times. The cause of Marlee's deafness is still unknown. One theory that Marlee used to believe was that she became Deaf after contracting a viral infection as a baby, although she later learned that particular infection cannot cause deafness.
While many readers will argue the novel Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is a love story, it is in fact a story about jealousy. There are several examples of jealousy, including Mrs. Danvers, who constantly brags about how great Maxim’s first wife Rebecca was compared to the new Mrs. De Winter. “Jealousy is an attitude or disposition in which one is apprehensive of losing a position or affection, and becoming resentful or bitter in rivalry”(dictionary.com). In Rebecca, the issue of jealousy is shown through many of the characters. Mrs. Danvers, Mrs. Van Hopper, Maxim, and the second wife of Maxim all show examples of jealousy.
Joan Crawford was in several movies when she was still alive. According to the research I have done, Crawford has been in at least 52 films within her time period. Joan Crawford refused to give her age to anyone. To this day nobody can confirm her real age.
This essay was written to compare the short stories “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury and “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson. These narratives have a sorrowful plot, open endings, an unhappy main character, and make us think about how we treat our peers, why we treat them the way we do and how we communicate with people. I have written about the similarities and differences of these two stories because, I'd like to emphasize the important details that are alike and different in "All Summer in a Day” and “The Lottery”. Both “The Lottery” and “All Summer in a Day” make the reader think deeply about how much we have and how much we all take for granted. The writers Ray Bradbury and Shirley Jackson did this by creating an unthinkable but mind twisting plot that would almost never come to mind, for example in “The Lottery” every year one person is stoned to death as a sacrifice for a
