Reading further into Mr. King’s essay, I was intrigued by the notion that a horror movie might actually have a role to play in civilized society. As Mr. King puts it, “like a sick joke, [the mythic horror movie] has a dirty job to do.” It allows us to fantasize, lets our basic instincts free and “appeals to all that is worst
- Halle berry plays a hooked stripper that suffers from multiple personalities and triumphs from her mental illness with the help of a patient psychiatrist. c. Purpose: Don’t write: “I will review this film” but rather, include your purpose in a statement that will make it clear to the reader. For Example, “Reviewing a classic action film like The Bourne Identity is always challenging because these kinds of movies develop a cult following of fans who are no longer able to watch from a objective perspective.” d. Main Point (Thesis): This is a statement that includes your “overall assessment” of the film. Remember that you want to go beyond saying it is “good” or “bad,” but instead identify specific story and/or visual elements that inform your opinion of the film. For Example, here is Maslin’s overall assessment of Fight Club: “The director of Seven and The Game for the first time finds subject matter audacious enough to suit his lighten-fast visual sophistication, and puts that
His argument is that, culturally, we tend to respect admire, glorify, and fear evil acts. The people who do mass killings usually imitate other copy-cat mass shooters. Metcalf also think that “They had often been bullied or neglected as children, had grown up into loners, and often recently lost their last shred of emotional connection or support (job, girlfriend) with the world” (par 3). They may also assume that they will never be forgotten if they kill more people than others. There are some men who think of themselves in grandiose terms and are just upset that the world have failed them.
The very same type of ending was seen when Holden recalled the movie he watched about the Englishman who had lost his memory and his response to it. He describes the movie as, “don’t see it if you don’t want to puke all over yourself” (138). His response to the movie most likely would have been because of how Holden had believed that Allie was somehow going to get through a terrible situation, which was clearly explained in the movie that Holden watched, but since Allie did
This film, primarily Charlize Theron, has received quite a bit of attention lately. For starters, Charlize has just recently won the Academy Award for best actress for her performance in this film. However, Theron did not spend much time in the makeup room in order for her to be transformed into an ugly beast, she portrayed Wuornos flawlessly. But even more astonishing is the fact that this movie is successful in getting the audience emotion to muster up some sympathy for the serial killer. In fact, at the end of this film I was more convinced in opposing the state of law punishment .To be honest, I saw this film after reading many reviews about how great Charlize was in this movie.
They have reasons and goals for killing that are obvious. With the people that I am talking about do not have goals that are reasonably noticable until after they are caught. These people are driven from within side them. They kill to what only appeals to them. Serial killers drive has been debated since people have started studying them, But there are a few commonalities in which they do agree upon.
Personal Response: I was interested in the event of the shooting because it made me think about what was going through Peter’s head while he was shooting. This was the main event in the book and I found it shocking and frightening. The way it was described made me visualise it all happening. Although I did not like the event that was happening I found it very interesting to read about, I liked that the event was told several times by several different characters point of views. A quote that I found shocking and frightening was when Patrick was running through the school and he writes “....a fine grey dust coated the broken bodies that lay twisted on the floor..... He’d see sprays of blood, and students crumbled on the ground” I found this quote quite disturbing.
I don’t approve of the killings but it does make sense. Watching a lot of crime solving shows, I know that murderers have pretty bad back-stories such as people or parents abandoning them, which is like the monster. I honestly think he should be blamed for them but instead of being put in jail, he should be given help that he needs. I feel as if the monster didn’t know what he was capable of and he was just trying to get Victor’s attention. I do believe Victor got what was coming to him.
A dark, mysterious building is towering above, ominous music is starting to play, and automatically Tim Burton is thought of. Many of Burton’s films are portrayed as a bit “creepy,” even though the plot may be of pleasant nature. As a child, Tim Burton could be considered quirky. In his youth he enjoyed watching monster films and playing in the cemetery. He always thought of his childhood as normal, because it was what he was used to.
She now sleepwalks and always has a delusional belief that she has blood on her hands. “Out, damned spot…who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?” she says as she sleepwalks (5.1.37-42). Lady Macbeth believes that nothing can wash away her blood and even more so her evil deeds. Although she had previously told Macbeth after Duncan’s death that he can just wash away the deed, those words have now come to haunt her since she herself cannot “wash them away”. Furthermore, Macbeth’s evil actions have caused him to no longer have feelings.
