Amanda Mortensen Mrs. Hawkins ENG 102 21 Feb. 2013 Stereotypical Beauty for a Beast Who has ever felt unworthy or not pretty enough? Many times I have wondered: who decided what is beautiful and what is not? With deep thought, I realized that it has been instilled in me since day one what beautiful is. According to the media, pop culture, and society beauty is being skinny, having nice facial features, and a big bust. Every movie I watched growing up instilled this very image into my brain.
Hidden Message Never Been Kissed is a movie about a women, Josie Geller, who is smart but socially awkward. In high school she was the typical loser but she went on to be a copy editor for the Chicago Sun-Times. The editor-in-chief assigns her to report undercover at a high school to help parents become more aware of their children's lives. This sends the main character Josie back to high school, the place she hated most where she becomes the same unpopular girl she was in high school. Josie fights though the movie to be clear of her loser label and make it in with the cool crowd.
The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller in 1952, is a recount of the horror that filled the town of Salem, known to many as the Salem Witch Trials.Which was really based on McCarthyism and the black list in the 1950s. The girls were motivated out of fear for their town’s harsh religious righteousness. Mean Girls, written by Tina Fey in 2004, is a tale of five girls that terrorize Lincoln Park High School. Motivated out of desire for high social standing, the girls
For Avalon, she was also strongly cyber bullied by a group of people on multiple blog pages that were initially started by an anonymous under the username Dragon Girl. She discovered her real friends – Tamara, Marshall, Sukey and Jemima (who were labelled the lamest group in the school). She was driven insane but her charming new best friend, Marshall, taught her to be strong and block it out – which is what she did. Everything was going so well, and then all of a sudden the bullies targeted Marshall as well. Marshall was grateful the bullies had loosened up on Avalon because he was madly in love with her ever since the first day he laid eyes on her, but on the other hand, he was also devastated he was getting all this undeserved hate.
An efficient technic of opposition but also one of the most hazardous is unquestionably the physic one. For example, in the movie In the time of the butterflies, Minerva lose her temper and slaps Trujillo. She’s rapidly regretful when Trujillo’s men take her father away. Unfortunately, this action doesn’t bring her any satisfaction but the death of her father. Still in the same movie, Minerva starts to frequent a school and she socialize with a girl with bad intentions.
It is impossible to create something that everyone will like, but I believe that it is the elements that go into the movie that can make a movie entertaining or not. In the movie Mean Girls, written by Tina Fey, the use of humor and the overall message makes the movie enjoyable to many. The movie Mean Girls began with the first day of high school for 16 year old Cady Heron who, up until now, had been home schooled in Africa by her zoologist parents. Not understanding the social or school rules of high school, Cady found herself in dire need of some guidance. Luckily, two social outcasts, Janice and Damien, showed her around and warned her of all the other social cliques in the school.
Kyle Meehan Movie project Mommie Dearest Joan Crawford: Joan Crawford’s character as described in Mommie Dearest by her daughter Christina obviously depicts a deeply disturbed psyche that influences her life in a multitude of negative ways. She appears to suffer from a high functioning form of OCD, always obsessing that things be immaculate, clean, and orderly and that she has control of every situation. When her obsessions are not satisfied she bursts into a fit of rage as seen in the “wire hanger” scene in which she beats her own daughter mercilessly for nearly nothing. Her extreme obsessions also stem from a tremendous narcissism, always insisting to be the best and going to great lengths to preserve her image in others eyes as well as her own. Her unhealthy self-love can be seen in her relationships in which she uses sex to control men and always appears to have a hand on them, especially turning to sex when the man gains any sort of will or power to insult or leave her.
Reality Television Critique After suffering a brutal hour of ridiculously cheesy, and fake commercials, as well as a tedious television program, I have learned more than ever how much I despise reality television shows and all that go with them. I used up my hour watching the Maury Povich show on KTVU. The theme of this particular program was young women who were particularly unattractive as children, and then smoking hot, sexy ten’s, as they grew older. These “ugly” young women were all ditched on their childhood dates or proms for other more attractive girls. These girls talked about being teased continuously, as well as not having many friends because of their apparent hideousness.
She is described so it is clearly that she is being the victim and why. The description of her appearance is long and we get a full image of her in our mind. By reading the first four lines, Celia is a little girl on the heavy side with glasses so thick nothing could break them. Even her name is so funny that the kids are laughing at her because of it. Moreover is she not only unpopular at school, she is also a diabetic child.
