A key example of this technique is the opening scene where we, the audience, are first introduced to Schindler. Our first impressions of Schindler are negative as we see him put on a Nazi badge. The lighting on this badge tells the audience that Schindler is an immoral man and a member of the Nazi party, it is also the first introduction of the holocaust and Hitler, and this floods the audience’s emotions with hatred and sadness. We also see Schindler flaunt money, the money is lit up, this signifies the importance of money and also foreshadows moneys role later on in the film. Towards the end of the film we see Schindler delivering his speech to his Jewish workers and Nazi guards, “you can return home to your families as men or as murderers, it’s your choice”.
Everyone assumes that directors and writers decide what happens in a movie, but many times the movie star is the most powerful person involved with the project. For instance, when Jim Carrey wanted to make a movie about his favorite number, The Number 23 hit theaters across the country. A much more entertaining abuse of this star power occurs when huge movie stars decide they look awesome doing something, and proceed to force that something into every movie they make. For instance ... #5. Tom Hanks' Career is a Urinary Morality Play Most movie stars use their careers to build up enough credibility to avoid urinating onscreen.

The movie Old Glory by Vane Scott was a very education experience for me; I learned many interesting facts from the movie. For example I didn’t know we had 27 flags for the United States before we came to the official one and the variety of flags with their designs was incredible from the imagery and symbolism they had provided. With all the stories Vane Scott had provided and the vivid description it almost makes you feel you were actually their fight for our freedom. My reflection on the movie it was greatly done and well organized with Vane Scott providing his humorous jokes about the flag it really took some of the boring times to the best. Another thing I learned from the movie was how many people and troops contributed to what we have today and how the flags were coming to be.

By using many quotes, statistics, and descriptive details Clarke makes the writing complete. It’s as if he gives a little taste of everything, but that miniscule amount is sufficient to feed one’s imagination. Clarke really makes a homerun, his purpose to demonstrate how well Kennedy’s speech was and how/why it was successful, also to demonstrate the genuine president that Kennedy was; in which he clearly accomplishes. Personally never paid much attention to any president’s speech nor wanted to read it, but after reading “Why JFK’s Inaugural Succeeded”, the motivation and very enthusiasm to read Kennedy’s speech was unavoidable. Amazingly an author can really engage his/her audience, but that really takes a lot.

Manipulation through Words: Rhetorical Devices in Political Speeches 6.07.2013 Never give in Winston Churchill “An orator`s primary aim is to persuade his audience.” – Macaulay Winston Churchill, the well-known and influential Prime Minister of United Kingdom during the World War II, was also considered one of the greatest orators of the twentieth century, thanks to his impressive oratorical skills. One of his most quoted speeches, “Never give in”, made by Churchill when he visited Harrow School on October 29, 1941 to hear the traditional songs and to speak to the students, is a great example of a clear address using excellent devices to persuade, motivate and inspire the audience. In my paper, I intend to make an analysis of the speech, by identifying and comment the rhetorical devices. As a great speaker, Churchill knew how to motivate the British people and for that he inserted rhetorical devices and imagery to make his speech that persuasive and inspirational. In ” Never give in” I identified phonological, lexical, syntactical and also semantic levels.
