Literary Trait Comparison of The Sound Of Thunder and Nethergrave Ray Bradbury’s, “The Sound of Thunder,” and Gloria Skurzynski’s story, “Nethergrave” are two good works of science fiction. They both develop their stories through the use of technology, which is the key element in any science fiction story. In Skurzynki’s, Nethergrave, a boy named Jeremy chooses a virtual world over the real world because in reality he feels clumsy, bullied, uncomfortable and alone (Skurzynki, 314-324). In Bradbury’s, The Sound of Thunder, we meet Eckels, a man who views himself as the ultimate hunter and decides to go on a time travel safari to shoot a Tyrannosaurs Rex but when faced with the reality of the beast, he becomes terrified and flees. As he scrambles away he goes off the Path and changes the course of history, and in turn, the future forever (Bradbury, 288-300).

Therefore in this essay we will be addressing and comparing the scene, the casting, and theme in both film (Hitchcock ’60) vs. (Van Sant ’98) to show the difference and the similarities in both movies. It’s really isn’t a surprise when horror movies are remade. Therefore director Van Sant did choose to remake this film through similar camera appearance; updating this movie with modern style and contemporary colors to the film that added a new spin on the old film.

The plot forces the audience to question whether humans can control the technology they create and if our desire to continually make advancements in technology might be to humanity’s detriment. The novel, ‘Black Hole’, written by Geraldine Stowe, is set on a star colony called ‘Estra’ in the year 2305 where technology has become so advanced that nearly anything is possible.

Benardi noted that Star Trek was aired at a time of social instability through the Cold War and Civil War, as well as era of social movements such as racism and feminism. Most writers of Star Trek took advantage of the strategic position to advance liberal ideas and counter-cultural plots through its production (p.210). Having only watched the latest Star Trek movie (2009) and found the interracial romance between Spock and Uhura intriguing, my interest in the rest of the franchise was piqued for this assignment. I continued my research by looking through scholastic articles that seek to analyze and critique the contents of Star Trek after I have watched 3 movies from the franchise, namely First Contact (1996), Insurrection (1999) and Nemesis (2002). However, it is notable that most of the literature is centered on racial themes for the earlier TV episodes rather than the later movies.

George Lucas was considered a genius of his time, taking Science Fiction movies into a whole new direction with the usage of computer effects and taking his whole movie up into space. However, his true genius exists in adapting current world issues and milestones in a subliminal manner incorporated in his film. His hit movie, Star Wars may have been engendered as an inspiration of the space race and also to fill the emptiness that followed a ephemeral triumph, but it is clear that the underlying message of the movie pertains to the Cold War and all the feuds and struggle between the United States (represented by Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance) and the Soviet Union (represented by Darth Vader and the Imperial Army). The symbolisms of the struggles between two most powerful countries are portrayed not only though props and costume but also through the sounds in the film as well as camera angles used to make the film. Though the United States at the time of the Cold War were not a group of unorganized forces, like the Rebel Alliance, George Lucas uses the rag-tag band of misfits, the Rebel Alliance, to create a twist in the current power dynamics of the cold war, because in fact the United States was equal to, if not greater in strength to the Soviet Union.

The director of the music in the film is James Horner who wrote the score for the film. He has composed music for such movies as Aliens, Apollo 13, Titanic, and Avatar. As his recent scores have created for 3D movies, his recent scores have utilized the technological sound designs common in superhero movies as Spider-Man.

Horner finds fresh 3-D dimensions in a score as the film is being shot in 3D film.
