Pleasantville and Back to the Future - ... These movies also have other similar concepts, such as racism and the idea of the “ideal family”; however, they both differ by discussing other social issues as well. Before traveling back in time to the 1950s, the characters in both of the movies acted very similarly. In both Pleasantville and Back to the Future, the main characters’ families aren’t exactly America’s “ideal families” – happy, well-off families with beautiful homes, intelligent children, nice jobs, etcetera. In Back to the Future, Marty’s school principal tells him that he’s a slacker just like his father and the “no McFly has ever amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley” – this really does sum up the reality...   [tags: Back to the Future movie analysis] 736 words

Satire and Tone in "The Once and Future King" - There is a direct link in Book I and Book IV of the Once and Future King from the animation and adventure that Wart experiences to the fall of King Arthur’s reign. The shift is long and detailed but in the end everything ties together.

In Book III, it is very descriptive and tedious with a darker tone, but then also is offset by Lancelot’s adventures....   [tags: Once and Future King, White, ] 472 words

Bernardo puts this into light, saying that "Bradbury's poetic style transports the reader out of the everyday world and into a fantasy world, often reminiscent of the unchecked imagination of childhood." This fantastical style can be found throughout Bradbury’s other works, including Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes....   [tags: The Veldt, Ray Bradbury, Literary Analysis]
