The third reason movie ratings shouldn’t be banned is that movie ratings can be used as constructive criticism by the director. Even though movie ratings are based on bias opinions, and your personal interpretation may vary from the ratings given. They still give parents an idea of what their children watch. An example of how the ratings are helpful to parents is: a parent might have a child that is 11 years old. This child may want to watch a movie like the film Employee of the Month which happens to be rated PG13.
Consequently, the film diverted from the books plot, particularly in the resolution. The director of Grapes didn’t follow the traditional dramatic structure noticeable in most plots; there is no clear cut climax or resolution. The film does this because the point of Grapes is to illustrate the general day to day struggles that the Okies faced. With this in mind, the director did not want to create a dramatic story with a climax, but rather a portrait of the Joad family’s life during the time they moved. As far as character development, the film does a good job staying true to the characters in the book.
“Joe Gould’s Secret” is a nonfiction story written by Joseph Mitchell, and a movie based on this book is also called “Joe Gould’s Secret” directed by Stanley Tucci. In today’s times a lot of movies are based on a written literature. Many students watch the movie instead of reading the book maybe because it’s more enjoyable but for some they take it as an easy way out. It’s obvious that it’s easier to watch the movie then reading the book but the movie lacks the details that are present in the book. I think if a director of a movie is basing a movie on the book they should add a lot of the little details that lead up to the climax of the story that were present in the book.
The initial negotiation deal states that there would not be any distribution agreement/contracts if it was not in writing and signed by both parties. Although the BTT manager did post an email to Chou outlining the terms and conditions of a distribution contract it does not officially confirm an agreement because neither party signed the document to seal a contract agreement as was required. Without any signatures of either parties or legally binding drafts it was previously agreed upon by both parties that no agreement or contracts exist. 2. What facts may weigh in favor of or against Chou in terms of the parties’ objective intent to contract?
Self-control—the ability to regulate what you say and how you act—is related to strong family bonds and low family conflict; empathy, the ability to understand the perspectives of other people; low levels of anger and aggression; and the ability to take responsibility for your failings.” (Sole, 2011, sect 3.2) In the scene in the movie, Hitch, it is evident that Sara did not exercise control of herself, either verbally or emotionally. It is important to approach conflict, or potential conflict with a level head and calmly. Raising your voice, changing your tone, taking an aggressive stance, and not allowing the other party to communicate their feelings all contribute to a breakdown in communication. In this scene, Sara essentially ends their relationship without any input from Hitch. Later in the movie they reconcile, after she allows Hitch to explain and hears his side of the story but, this all could have been avoided by her just approaching the situation with the intention to
Original Novels and Film Adaptions As an avid fan of both movies and books, I often find myself wondering whether or not to buy the book after I’ve seen the movie, or vice versa. I’ve seen some terrible film adaptations and some really good ones, and some that have nothing in common except the characters’ names and the titles, but are both enjoyable in their own way. On the whole, I think I like reading an original novel better than watching its film adaption because the original novels were created by the person who knows them best. The personalities of characters may be changed and become different between the novels and the movies. The movies don’t even come close to how the books portray the characters vividly.
Self-awareness means that you must recognize and take responsibility for your perceptions, interpretations, feelings, and desires. Differentiation means that you separate yourself from the patterns of the family and do not take responsibility for other people's feelings, perceptions, interpretations, and desires. (Kathy Sole) We tend to forget the foundation of trust and respect when failing to communicate. Watching interpersonal conflict play out in film is a great way to empathize with a character that is or characters that are going through a similar conflict experienced by the films viewer. This viewer can take note of the outcome from the decision the character(s) made in this similar instance.
Because you do not know what the other one is bringing into the relationship, a new relationship is the hardest to know what is being brought into the relationship. Until one know how to share, trust and care. The three things a person needs to have a good relationship are good communication, trust, and respect. If a relationship does not have any of these things then it becomes hard to have a very successful relationship. If you would want to build a strong relationship with one partner they must have respect for each other.
Mr Hindley would have made the decision of marrying her or not. There is no clue whatsoever to where she’s from as Mr Hindley didn’t inform anyone, therefore the narrator, Ellen doesn’t have a clue, nor does the reader as we see everything from her point of view. However, as we don’t know where she’s from, it could suggest her social position and could be different from Mr Hindley. This would affect his position and the society would think down on him. His wife “neither had money, nor name to recommend her”, again suggesting her status as she had no ‘money’.
With this pregnancy, the dad didn’t know about it, and I knew he wouldn’t help me because he has two girls that he doesn’t see or support. Adoption was the best thing I could think of. I knew it would be the hardest decision ever in my life. I wanted the baby to go with a family that couldn’t have kids. I knew I couldn’t care for the baby like I wanted to.
