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.

This trend continues through each movie with Batman facing generally two major villains and maybe a third minor villain. To study the trend I watched each movie and looked at a few aspects of each character that resurfaces again in later movies. These aspects were backstory, driving force, and characterization within the movie. The reason I only paid close attention to the characters that reappear later is to be able to compare and contrast the characters of each different segment of Batman movies. See the Batman movies are usually grouped into three different sections.
Insurance advertisements from a few years ago had a tendency to be more serious, like Prudential’s “Own a Piece of the Rock” or Allstate’s previous ads with actor Dennis Haybert talking more seriously about insurance losses. Insurance giant Geico, a Warren Buffet owned company, started using humor a few years ago with the Geico Gecko and the Cavemen to sell insurance. Everybody needs insurance, and it is a competitive business, but Allstate is hoping to tilt the scales in their favor with a character that they have created called Mayhem. Mayhem grabs your attention with humor, he shows the craziness that can happen in life, and how Allstate is there to protect us, making this a pretty effective advertisement. Mayhem is a humorous, exaggerated depiction of the things that can go wrong in everyday life.
The imaginary friend that I picked is Lou, the article I think that he would find most convincing is “Don’t Withhold Violent Games” because one of his hobbies is to play games.

When James L. Swanson published “Manhunt” in 2006, it was a much more serious matter with the same principle. John Wilkes Booth had killed our president Abraham Lincoln, and nearly everyone in America was searching for him. It was the greatest manhunt in American history. Swanson gives a very detailed narrative of how the 12-day chase for Lincoln’s killer went.
The theme of evil comes into play when reading this book. Holmes has had murder on his mind since birth. Holmes said in his confession, “I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing.” (pg. 1) He saw the World’s Fair as an opportunity to perform many experiments, tortures, and murders.
Commonalities in Serial Killers (mainly focusing on fantasy) Kashmir McLaughlin In the past years, people known as the serial killer has captured the attention of American culture. Movies and books have been a big influene on the serial killer craze. But just because movies and books make them out to be “normal” does not mean that they are.

Ironically, the tradition in this case is the murder of a villager by stoning them to death. After reading “The Lottery”, the use of irony is vey clear. Shirley Jackson used irony to give the reader a dramatic reaction to the final events in the story. From the peaceful setting in the beginning of the story, to the malicious murder of the villager in the end, irony played a very significant
But long ago violent games were invented based on violent movies so if someone says it causes aggression then some movies in the world cause aggression too. Violent video games also improve your memory due to finding attacks that work best and you try harder to remember them. They also help you with map work coordinates, self positioning, knowing your surroundings and remembering that you have been in this certain place before. So I think people have their own opinions but I think I have proved a few good points and the violent games were created by people who were aggressive from the start. Everyone deals with stress and frustrations differently.
