The films Schindler’s List and Life is Beautiful both portray horrific events in our history. Each movie depicts the mistreatment of Jews in concentration camps during the Holocaust. Life is Beautiful starts off with a man who falls in love with women and having a child before the Nazis invaded. Schindler’s List starts off with a business man trying to be wealthy and using the Jews to get little to free labor after his county has already had been invaded. The sacrifices of the main characters are evident in both movies.
The boy in the striped Pajamas Review “It all started with an idea”, according to the writer of “The boy in the striped Pajamas” John Boyne, an idea that soon became a successful book, and movie. In 2008 the movie was released in the United States. Some people enjoyed the story, and have used it for educational purpose, on the other hand; others did not agree because it is based on fiction. Originally most of the children during the holocaust were killed, because the German considered them unproductive useless little creatures. Therefore, it is agreeable that some people will not agree with the movie especially when it is being use for education.
Ellie Would study Jewish prayers, Talmud, during the day, and at night he would run to the synagogue to cry about the destruction of the temple. He was very eager to learn Kaballah, despite being too young for it. His father wouldn’t teach it to him, nor would he find someone to teach it to him, so Moishe the Beadle decided to dedicate his time to teach it to him. Although Wiesel didn't know why he spent his time being so religious, it was natural to him, like “breathing.” As the story progressed, all the Jews were expelled from Sighet, and one of those Jews was Moishe the Beadle. Luckily he got to escape from the Nazis, but after seeing inhuman and cruel actions from the Nazis, such as tossing up babies and using them as shooting practice targets, he came back a completely different person.

Lochlyn Bickmore ENGL 1010-022 Camon Davison Genre Experiment #1 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas The movie, “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas,” is about a little 8 year old boy's perspective of World War Two. It informs you about some of the horrible things that happened, but they did it in a very creative way. All the parts they added to the movie made it really good. They didn't ruin the movie at all, they made it flow better and helped the audience get to know the characters more. The way they ended the movie was very well done; the climax at the end brought me to tears.

In the original film (Hitchcock) the old dark and colorless film, the creep music provide the viewers an idea that something wicked is about to happen. Therefore again both directors did provide enough action to carry over to each scene. In the remake the casting was truly wrong; For instance the infamous character Norman Bates, the psychopathic motel owner was played by fast talking, macho man Vince Vaughn. In the remake the Norman appears to be more of a sexual predator, whom would actually please himself as he watch Marion through a peephole in the shower scene; which gives the audience a different point of view about this film and van sant character Norman. However in the original version Anthony Perkins plays Norman Bates, who truly fit the character with calmer attitude, and good boy looks as Norman.
Throughout its entire hour and 53 minutes, Memento does its best to leave the audience completely confused as to what is happening, and in what order. And it certainly works. The first thing you will probably notice about the movie, is that it is directed by Christopher Nolan, best known for his Batman trilogy, and the wonderful Inception. And indeed, Memento is very similar to Inception in the way it makes you feel as a viewer. The main character, Leonard, is a man who cannot make new memories since the rape and murder of his wife, and who has devoted his life to attempting to get revenge for his wife’s death.
Compare and Contrast Essay: ‘Night’, ‘Life is Beautiful’ Elie Wiesel’s ‘Night’ is a true and shocking recollection of the terrible days Elie Wiesel spends in the Ghettos of Sighed, the (Sub) concentration camp (s) in Auschwitz and the miserable transportation to Buchenwald. The book is a factual description of events Elie and his father had to go through whilst living in Germany and describes the events of being forced into ghettos, transported to Auschwitz, almost starving to death and almost beaten to death, as a daily routine Elie Wiesel faces in his ‘new’ life as a hunted and imprisoned Jew in Nazi Europe. ‘Life is beautiful’ written by Roberto Benigni also discusses the Holocaust but with a different purpose compared to Elie Wiesel. His purpose was to entertain the people, literally make them cry and most important of all, make them laugh. Benigni sort of twists the ideologies of the Nazi’s, and puts emphasis on their absurdness.
