The film provides many familiar Terminator moments, including the recycling of the catchphrase “come with me if you want to live” and most famously, “I’ll be back”. The unexpected twist which sees an age-defying Arnold Schwarzenegger resuming, if briefly, his role as the T-800 (thanks to some seamless CGI work) will definitely please the fans. That said, Terminator Salvation is much more than a rehashing of the previous films in the series. With the disappearance of the time-travelling cyborg and post-apocalyptic setting of the film, Terminator Salvation introduces a new storyline centred on John Connor (Christian Bale) and the (not so) mysterious Marcus
Throughout the movie Calvin becomes more and more aware of what kind of relationship his wife and son, Conrad have and after the death of his oldest son he realizes what kind of person his wife is. Calvin experiences despair towards the end of the movie when he is in reflection of this marriage and then understands that he doesn’t know what kind of person she is anymore. Calvin at this point shows signs of being depressed and like he has failed. Erickson’s stages of psychosocial development are eight stages that start at the age of infancy and go all the way to late adulthood. The stages are what a person should experience to become a healthy and well rounded human being, but if one person is not able to experience one stage or misses out then later in life the stage missed may become a problem.
Orwell’s definition of a hero calls for someone who is ordinary seeking to change society even when knowing they cannot succeed. Orwell created a hero who most certainly failed. Winston’s failure is a result of Orwell simply creating a human being, who like all other human beings, is flawed. Yet the answer still remains that, yes Winston is a hero when compared to Orwell’s understanding of a hero. He is an ordinary man who rebels while knowing he will not succeed.
Mao criticised Khrushchev for his policies such as de-Stalinisation and his secret speech. He was also very critical of the policy of Peaceful Coexistence as he believed it was a way of being friendly with the United States (the enemy) and also Mao saw it abandoning millions of comrades struggling to free themselves of capitalist and imperialist oppression. This, therefore, made the USSR an ‘enemy’. How could two countries work together if they had such differing beliefs about how to run their countries? This problem had a big contribution to the split as they couldn’t agree on anything, and if they did, it was because their national interests were at risk.
Scott crafts the future city to look like a hell on earth. The director implies this dystopic world dehumanises its citizens, and therefore the replicants fighting for a future reveal more emotion and will to survive. This view of the city provokes the notion that technology, scientific achievements and media or commerce have infected the earth but there is ‘a golden land of opportunity…’ known as ‘the off world’ and is available to you as long you are perfectly healthy and are not a replicant. Society’s lack of caring for nature is linked to its moral corruption. Deckard’s ‘routine retirement’ of the replicant Zhora shows his coldness, however his voiceover notifies the viewer, that this “didn’t make me feel any better about shooting a woman in the back”.
Greene brings us down Pudge’s path of falling for Alaska Young then having to deal with her death. Carlos Zafón, author of The Shadow of the Wind, writes about a male teenager, Daniel Sempere, who falls in love with a girl that becomes his source of suffering. Zafón takes us on the journey of how Daniel must cope and Daniel’s adventure along the way. Both authors demonstrate through characterization, young love, and the loss of love that when love is destroyed, it causes unbearable emotional distress and pain that is virtually impossible to cope with. Both Greene and Zafón uses the characterization of their characters to show the way male teenagers cope with losing their first love.
She deserves a glowing crown of gold!” (Sophocles, 1984, pg. 95). This difference in what the people believed was just and what the king thought was just shows us how a state ruled by the people rather than one man is the best way to keep the states power over its people in check. Antigone finds Creon’s decree to be unjust so she breaks the law and does what she thinks is the right thing to do. In most societies this type of disrespect for the law is looked
‘The greatest national sin is the neglect of the masses and that is one of the causes of our downfall. '1 Thus spoke Swami Vivekananda about the unavoidable role of the masses in building a strong and united nation, concomitantly if they are neglected, no nation can flourish for the long run. This is what seen in India not only at the time of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) but onwards too, and writers like Mulk Raj Anand (1905-2004) made it out and, therefore, stood to address a complex problem in the form of untouchability rampant in the Hindu society. In his realistic portrayal of the novel ‘Untouchable' (1935), Anand is concerned with the sufferings of the masses i.e. Shudra- sweepers and his wish to bring about social happiness in their lives and to register his protest against the evil in the social system of Hindus as well.
Both sides have a good understanding, but they both have there cons as well. Mohandas Gandhi was a pacifist leader. He was a powerful political and spiritual leader of India. Gandhi believes that violence may not be justified no matter what the circumstances are. He quotes “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of democracy and liberty?” This quote reflects through Gandhi’s eyes that the lives lost through violence could never be justified.
