I’m using this book as a resource to write about gun control. Larson is a former writer for the Wall Street Journal and Time magazine and still contributes articles to them. Larson has taught non-fiction writing at San Francisco State, the Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars, and the University of Oregon. He has spoken to audiences from coast to coast and wrote four other books; The Naked Consumer, Isaac’s Storm, The Devil in the White City, and Thunderstruck. I have not read the other books, but Lethal Passage gives you ideas about how dirty guns get out on the street, what kind of things was done with the gun before the next person gets it, and how easy it is to acquire a gun.
It was a sudden misfortune at midnight, when 24-year-old James Holmes began a shooting massacre at the premiere of the new Batman film: The Dark Knight Rises. Information about this shooting swarmed the news stations and was soon broadcasted all over the world. This shooting was said to have been the worst mass shooting since the Nov. 5, 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas. One of the reasons why that it is, because the shooter had easy access to assault weapons. There are both pros and cons in having accessibility to assault weapons, but I believe that sale of assault weapons should be banned.
300 might not be historically accurate, but a lot of special effects were added to this movie in purpose of adding a flavor to the screen and to keep the viewers of the movie entertained. The fight scenes are far from what you may call “historically accurate,” but that was Zack Snyder’s intention. 300 This movie will always be remembered, 300 is always going to have an important role in the history of cinematography right next to movies like Casablanca. I absolutely love the movie 300, a lot of film schools take advantage of the great methods that were used to make this movie and use them to teach their students about films. You can count on film schools using 300 as a means to teach film students for many years to come.
Spike vs. Tyler Tyler Perry movies are fun and uplifting while Mr. Lee creates a more serious or dramatic type of movies with major purposes. Spikes movies take a more explosive pattern than a tyler perry movie which are most of the time dramatic but very funny at times. Tyler focuses on a dysfunctional Black family while Spike’s storyworld is the impact of social and political factors on Black people. Finally, both have dissimilar political and religious convictions: Tyler’s work is powerfully dominated by evangelical Christian themes while Spike’s films do not display any obvious religious conviction. Spike Lee is recognized by his peers as a groundbreaking filmmaker.
The films plot follows a classic chronological, slasher, horror movie storyline, following the adventures of drunk and sex obsessed college students who are eventually torn to pieces by monsters - in this case, a family of zombies. There are generally no time jumps and there are no flashbacks. The story operates in an omniscient manner, following individual characters at different times in the story. This helps us understand their feelings and desires. The omniscient narration also creates an unsettling feeling, as if someone is watching.
Jeepers Creepers + Psycho essay Alfred Hitchcock produced the film ‘Psycho’ in 1960; the certificate is a 15 due to the graphic murders. The genre is horror, but also there is a sub genre, which is drama because there is a vast amount of romance in the film. Many films have been influenced by Hitchcock and his director techniques and his most successful film ‘Psycho’. Mostly because of the shower scene and the way intensity is built. The film was originally going to be filmed in colour, but because of the excessive violence and graphic nature, mainly the shower scene, it would not be allowed, so they filmed it in black and white.
On the one hand, many argue that “humor is the only truthful way to show the truth” (Freda Freiberg, 2007). On the other hand, others felt that “any fictional treatment was inappropriate because fiction- whether popular entertainment or high art- smacks of falsity. While the Holocaust was too real, thus, they believed its reality could only be conveyed by factual documentation and testimony” (Freiberg, 2007). Even though it is a funny movie, Chaplin uses humor as a vehicle to delve into a serious subject. Although using humor might be considered scandalous to some critiques, everyone can admit that Chaplin made a remarkable film based on his famous sense of humor.
Lastly, the movie “28 Days later” gives strong warning about potential danger and fear of using biochemical material. Directed by Danny Boyle, The movie '28 Days Later', reflects the conflict between nation and terrorism; In early 2000s, 9/11 terror provoked global attention.

As we are living in modern society, living in a world that design to encourage interaction with others that being individual isolated became a fear;
The story of Brokeback Mountain became a very interesting read for me, the things that impacted me the most from the story was the power of love, whether it be from heterosexual couples or homosexual couples. The theme of how love conquers and prevails no matter the circumstances was seen throughout the short story. The adaptation of story to the screenplay captures the essential elements of the story its entirety, a rare thing seen in film adaptations. Many story-to-film adaptions commonly cut out major portions of the book or fill in gaps to make the film more "appealing" and "watchable" to audiences, whereas the film by Ang Lee featured all of the writing of Annie Proulx story down to the grim details. However, the film did seem as though more dimension was added to create a more emotional environment that makes you feel the happiness, love, hardship, and sorrow that radiates from the onscreen characters.
It’s not like writing about teenage romance or mystical monsters, where the author must portray great streams of emotion, or create conjured up images of ghoulish beasts seen only in our nightmares. Then again, reality can sometimes be a nightmare in and of itself; as O’Brien points out, “In any war story, but especially a true one, it’s difficult to separate what happened from what seemed to happen.” (Meyer 320) It’s just about the facts, right? Is the truth so boring that people feel it must be “spun” in order to make it interesting enough to read? While telling any type of true story most certainly requires a certain degree of guile, grace and discretion, a war story must be doubly so. Perhaps this is why Tim O’Brien prefers writing “fiction” and seldom writes “true” war stories.
