The historical inaccuracies in the movie “Braveheart” have several basic areas which include adding or deleting characters and inaccuracy regarding the lives and actions of historical figures. In addition to this, there also happens to be military inaccuracies as well as periods of time which the movie does not account and instead inserts fictional events to make the movie more entertaining
The old ones used to make it more horrifying and disgusting, and this is why I thought the first Nightmare On Elm Street was more scarier then a remake. The remake I thought was more boring the old one, there was many unneeded
Spike Lee’s films, deal with different aspects of the black experience, they are innovative and controversial even within the black community. Spike Lee refuses to be satisfied with presenting blacks in their acceptable stereotypes. His characters are three-dimensional and often vulnerable to moral criticism. Lee’s collection of films with the theme racism, stood out for me because he is more interested in subverting the status quo of black history, so it isn’t just typical films which show racism. I also liked Lee’s intimate describing of his experience, and how some of his films had interesting elements to them because he was part of the black society.
I am against the murdering of innocent people. The cartels kill people to prove that they have all the power and they are unstoppable. What if you were a resident to a Mexican city and you would be kidnapped and then tortured till death? That is what these people are facing with these drugs cartels. No one should have to go through this.
Being that this is a short paper, I will only talk about a few incidents in the courtroom scene as there far too many examples of racism to detail here. A statement is read that ties the Mexicans and their violence to alcohol and inborn characteristics of Aztecs. The defendants must stand up when being talked about as the prosecutor makes the point that the jury cannot tell them apart. Another example of racism was a newspaper being shown with a guilty headline before the verdict is even read. Finally, Henry’s brother is beat and stripped of his clothing which seems to be a metaphor for being stripped of his
Like my last statement, it would harm people's knowledge on history, even though it doesn't look like it has great importance it is the small details that always count. The movie of 1960 to me did harm the way people thought of Bowie that he wanted to abandon the Alamo while Travis insisted on staying when in fact, both men thought it essential to hold the Alamo. This wrong fact could change the way people thought of Bowie, because in the movie they made him look like a deserter because he wanted to abandon the
What is bullshit? This is a neither simple question that many in today’s world don’t exactly have a clear answer to nor understanding of. In the published book, “On Bullshit” by Frankfurt, we are provided with a definition and explanation to what exactly bullshit is. The interpretation of bullshit drawn from the novel can be said to be a misrepresentation of what is to be true. Because of bullshit being a misrepresentation of the truth; it has been repeatedly mistaken or confused with the act of lying.
Knowing or not knowing? Black swan events make it difficult to distinguish between belief and knowledge because in the movie “Knowing”, we can see John`s switching of beliefs from believing in free will to believing in determinism, according to the experiences he has during the movie. A Black Swan is an event that even though it is improbable and unpredictable to happen, it has great impact. People try to explain black swans after they occur, but they cannot do so in advance. In “Knowing”, John debates between the concepts of Free will and determinism because of the actions that take place, which contradict his beliefs.
Facts are events that exist and history, the act of recording and understanding past events that happened. Both movies were invaluable in validating the fact that history depends very much on facts and their context to interpret Memento highlighted the importance of knowing the facts and the consequences of drawing conclusions without fully comprehending them. Lenny the protagonist, suffers from anterograde amnesia, and is unable to generate new memories. Hence, he is forced to record them down through other means such as Polaroid photographs and tattoos. Leaving himself without much to work with, he has numerous misconceptions about his past.
