Jack shows this with his obsession of hunting he did it not only because they needed meat but because one day he would use this in his favor to humiliate others and make him look like the powerful one. By utilizing conflict and symbol as a literary device to show how he was better than Ralph how he
The moral of the movie for me, is that you should trust your instincts: Höfgen knew the Nazi’s were no good, but he got involved with them anyway and in the end, it didn’t work out well for him. I think this is also the moral message that this movie wants to bring across. That and, stick to what you know. Höfgen was a great actor, but he shouldn’t have tried to interfere with politics as well, that only caused trouble for him. The film is provocative culturally or politically, it forces you to judge the situation and make decisions for yourself, it shows a bad side of the Nazi’s, but it is way too late to do anything about them.
Jack has all the aspects of a military dictator. He wins the heart of his followers with promises of meat and “hunting every day” 73. Jack is able to become a dictator by providing the little ones with protection from the beast. The little ones respect Jack when they hear that he and his “hunters will protect (them) from the beast”(166). Jack becomes successful in gaining power because he rules by fear and with intimidation and brute force.
I think that the movie was good in concept but it was a slow movie to watch due to the lack of immediate action. Although not everything in the movie was bad. Even though the movie had a slow start and was lacking in color it had a good plot. The story of a small town boy becoming a war hero is very popular and can be a great success. The movie could have improved by providing more realistic explosions in battle and if the actors talked slower and more clearly so the audience might understand them better.
The first idea is that man is a parasite, a being who ‘consumes without producing’, lazy and weak. This sets up the central theme of injustice that such a creature should be lord of the strong and productive animals. This is reinforced by appealing to each individual set of animals. First the cows, who have given thousands of gallons of milk, then the hens who have laid eggs, then the horses and their foals, then the pigs, then the dogs. This makes the speech much more personal towards the animals as it makes it easier for them relate to because part of the speech is directed at them.
On page 142 the boys are all discussing how the fire and rescue is most important, but Samneric get the conch and together say, “That must be fun like Bill says-and he’s invited us- to a feast-meat-crackling-I could do with some meat.” This is a good example because it shows that people will try and get out of the serious stuff and instead do what they think is most important which to them at the time was meat. Followers may follow people because they are doing something they like, but you can also force them to listen and strike them with
Life with talking would be probably too stressful for him. In the movie, Bromden is also depicted as a silent, which comes over very well, sometimes disinterested and foolish person. His disinterest is obviously visible, since he is pretending he is deaf and dumb. However, there are parts in the movie which represent Chief Bromden’s behavior out of the book to the fullest. Bromden is smart and knows what he is doing.
In the movie the boys come all together on a boat to the island and are familiar with each other. The filmmakers probably did this to show how joined they are in the beginning of the book and civilized. I think that the book's opening is more effective because it shows how Ralph and Piggy already have a connection even before the group comes. Another thing the movie lacks is that the beast is a dead parachuter who gets caught in the trees. In the movie, the beast or "monster" is the crazy pilot who ran away and hid in a cave.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear” (Canfield, n.d.). Fear becomes an inevitable barrier that abducts the teenagers from their dreams and aspirations. There are various types of fears, such as fear of failure, rejection, and perceived inadequacy. These fears can be beneficial as they hinder us from performing unnecessary actions that will lead to unwanted consequences. However, fears result in weakening a person’s self-esteem as it consumes a person’s mind into thinking that everyone around is so judgmental and critical.
