The twists in the film are predictable as you could tell that Vesper was going to betray Bond at least 10 minutes before it happened. The other twist being that Mathis was also a traitor, this twist was not quite as obvious as the other one but you could still tell. Parts of the plot are also predictable and are usually the same in all the films, the fact that Bond always gets the beautiful girl or two. However in Casino Royale he is clearly very upset when vesper dies but soon recovers. The same thing happened in “Her Majesty’s Secret Service” in which Sean Connery gets married, and afterwards his wife is killed.
This movie was the predecessor for another movie displaying a homosexual love affair called Brokeback Mountain. Although this film broke boundaries of presenting a loving relationship with somebody of the same sex, (which caused controversy in the social world) this film was not as controversial as Warhol’s Lonesome Cowboys. Reason being? This movie was made in 1968. Revolting images of borderline porn was demonstrated in a time where sex and common genres of film did not interrelate.
Located in Greenwich Village gays were not the only people found in the bar during the 60’s. Like many gay bars, Stonewall was owned by members of the Mafia, who were capable of skirting around the red tape often thrown in the way for gay establishments seeking liquor licenses (Dana). The mafia didn’t mind the gay or the queens filling their bar, and began to build friendships with them. Police, however, were highly against the idea of gay bars, and could barge into them without direct reason. That’s
The fourth problem with media violence is Hollywood’s infatuation with guns, in which I quote, “Why should we be surprised to discover that kids want a gun? If Hollywood stopped glorifying possession and use of handguns, there would be fewer crimes committed by youth with handguns.” Although Peters’ tries to make valid points about the corruption of youth through media violence, he misses many opportunities to use prime examples as if he hasn’t done much research into the subjects himself. I believe that his arguments are ineffective due to his lack of statistical evidence, such as crime rates statistics, to support his statements.
There was gang violence as well as drugs being distributed around where Jay Z was from. Jay Z did disappoint me however that he was involved in the drug game. I know that he says he did not try any of the drugs, but just his involvement in this distribution of drugs is a disappointment to me. I never would have guessed this about Jay Z before reading. I do see how he got involved so easily though due to all the peers and their forms of peer pressure from where he was from.
“How Police Is Portrayed By American Films” Most American Films like to portray the police as corrupt and scrupulous. I have watched only a few that portrays police officers as good and honest. I guess that good cops don’t sell movie tickets well. One movie I particularly like, although one can see that it is not realistic, is the movie “Training Day”. The film follows a single day in the life of an LAPD cop, Jake Hoyt, who is being evaluated by Detective Alonzo Harris, who is a highly decorated LAPD narcotics officer and who could advance his career.
When looking at our world today we have so many criminals who have committed gruesome acts based from a scene that they have seen in a movie and that idea coming right from the source of that movie so not having a particular movie where someone got that idea as a reference could be a positive factor in our world today. Since they are a lot of individuals who are not strong minded enough to separate a movie from actual life and are only looking at what they see on the big screen other than separating the two reality from a movie, I believe this may help crime drop tremendously. On the other hand I look at a world without movies and see some negative factors since movies is a big portion of our social lives couples go to movies while on dates, individuals go to the movies as something to do or when something they really believe they will enjoy watching comes out. So not having this as apart of our lives could have bad results as well. Along with the fact that not all movies are violent,
While the movies about Evita created an interesting portrait of her exciting life, The A&E Biography offered a more appealing representation of Evita Peron. The biography gave both the perspectives on how Evita was both good and bad, while the movie seemed to portray only Evita’s generous actions to Argentinean people. The biography revealed that the generous Evita was in fact the opposite; she spent the money that was donated to her campaign on herself for public appearances for shoes, clothes, and jewelry. The movie did show a bit of Evita not being so generous such as showering herself with Dior and expensive items, but the movie was hard to convey the portrayal of Evita through a musical. The movie made me wonder why Che Guevera was used to narrate Evita’s story and not a stranger.
But the kidnap goes wrong in an uncontrolled manner: three men are killed and a police officer Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) starts an investigation. The base of a story is a simple although surprising deal which allows a variation on human life in particular circumstances. Indeed, Coen brothers pull off one improbable scene after another but use very few camera movements as if to say that their apparently simple characters are the most important part of the movie. Coen brothers try to depict the lives of ordinary people with an air of decided realism. At the beginning of the movie, just before credits, we can read “This is a true story.
Horror Films and Society as Mirrors Since the beginning of time, violent crimes have been committed. From crimes of jealously, insanity, revenge, and even crimes of passion, criminals have always found a motive to validate their reason to hurt or kill. These crimes have dated back before the idea of movies, much less horror movies, was thought about. If this is the case, why would one believe that the violence in horror films is influential to society? Although horror movies can be psychotic, gory, and may sometimes give creative ideas to criminals; criminals committed heinous crimes before the television was even invented.
