His footsteps where so loud as he stepped upon the iron grate that the noise seemed the rattle the brain within his skull. He came to a halt, a sweaty hand ran over cold steel tightening his grasp around the only protection he had against the foul city he was in. His stomach turned as he turned around and took a defensive crouch ready to dart at any given moment. A torch was gripped in his left hand, pinning that light-giving object against the gun in his right to direct his aim. He was attempting to mentally stop and fight all his instincts, which were telling him to run was physically exhausting.
"We will give you all the money we have, two thousand zloty. Just don't shoot." "Fine," Lukas replied, glaring, his face bruised and bloody. Lazer and Max advanced slowly, pulling the wads of cash out from their pockets. Without warning, Max shot forward towards Lukas.
It gets all over your clothes. The M16A2 has several distinct sounds. Not just the sound of a round being fired successfully out of its barrel, but the slaps of Marines hands on the stocks in unison during close order drill, the sound of its charging handle is unique when chambering a round, and the rare, but unfortunate sound of an inept recruit dropping it on the parade deck. That poor Marine will probably never drop it ever again. My rifle looked just like everyone else's.
However, as time passes, Roger becomes more savage to the point of killing Piggy by pushing a rock off of a ledge. Golding states, “The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist.” (Golding 164). The quiet Roger at the beginning has turned from civil, to messing with the littleuns, to murder. Roger’s change of mind lectures Golding’s belief that people can be pushed to such a point that their natural brutality is unveiled. Ralph, the most civilized character in the novel, finds brutality permeating through his brain.
Graphically, it is a kinetic thrill, keeping you mesmerized by the innovation of editing, visual effects, sound mixing and editing. However, a very prominent feature where the film falls short in is the continuous recoil to a predictable storyline; the bad guys fire thousands of bullets, but are unable to hit the good guy (who in turn, fires just hundreds and hits them all). Then it's down to the standoff between good and evil, Neo and Agent Smith- a martial arts battle in which the good guy gets pounded until he's almost dead, before he finds the inner strength to believe and fight back. We’ve all ‘been there, done that.’ Just as the movie becomes interesting, it loses its innovation and settles for the same recycled ideas we’ve all seen a dozen times in violence of good vs. bad. It’s a little unfortunate as the premise and general set-up is very intriguing.
His temper during these four books can be ungovernable, as he says: ‘Now when Eurylochus said that, I considered drawing the long sword from my sturdy side and lopping his head off to roll in the dust, but my men held me back and calmed me down’1. Nevertheless he has shown his patience and persistence before. For example he persists and continues to endure all that happens even when he ‘had no further use for life, no wish to see the sunshine anymore’2. Earlier, in the Cyclops’s cave we see Odysseus’ restraint when he had ‘murder in [his] heart’3 but held back and devised a better plan. It is possible to think that as his intense journey continues, Odysseus becomes less patient and his temper shortens, this would explain how in certain areas Odysseus shows patience, restraint and endurance, whilst in others he is easily angered or frustrated.
Curley is first mentioned in chapter two as he interrupts a conversation between George, Lennie and the swamper. Steinbeck physically describes him as a ‘thin young man with a brown face, brown eyes’ and also a ‘head of tightly curled hair’. His description includes him wearing a ‘work glove on his left hand’ and he ‘wore high heeled boots like the boss’, therefore, straight away the reader can refer to Curley having authority. With the reaction of George being ‘tense and motionless’ we can already understand the fact that him being the boss’ son means that he automatically thinks and knows he has power over the workers in the ranch. His intimidating behaviour as he’ lashed his body around’ in the bunk house shocks George and Lennie leading to the swamper describing him as being ‘handy.
His eyes are filled with rage like a bull’s. He walks at a swift paste to John taking long strides. Getting in John’s face the drill sergeant says with his mouth twitching,” What’s so funny maggot?” John says with smirk,” Nothing.” “Nothing what,” said the drill sergeant growing more and more impatient. John, still with a smirk,” Nothing drill sergeant.” The drill sergeant lets out a
His youngest son, on his left has fallen after already being bitten. On the father’s right, his oldest son looks to his father for help, whilst struggling to break free from the serpent’s coils. The free standing statue can be seen from 360 degrees allowing every muscle on the nude figures to be viewed in their dramatic and powerful poses. Hierarchical scale is used on the centre male figure, depicting him as far larger than his sons, forming an obvious focal point and allowing greater detail in the form. There is increasing dynamism through emphasis on the diagonal, from the high point of Laocoön’s elbow (viewer left) down to his feet (viewers right).
Amir tries to talk to the older boys, and make them leave them alone. He realizes that will not work when Assef brings out his stainless steel brass knuckles. When Assef starts heading towards them, Hassan makes a daring move for his slingshot, and successfully loads it, and aims it at Assef. Assef tells Hassan, “Maybe you didn’t notice, but there are three of us and two of you.”(42) To which Hassan replies, “You are right Agha. But perhaps you didn’t notice that I’m the one holding the slingshot.
