Donald Duck - Who is Donald Duck. Full Name: Donald Fauntleroy Duck Birthdate: Egg hatched June 9, 1934 (Egg laid Friday, March 13, 1934) Besides in my opinon, being the greatest cartoon character ever, Donald is the one in the little blue suit that is more often in a rage than not. His personality shows through actions. He gives new meaning to the phrase: "Actions speak louder than words." His lines are few and almost indecipherable, forcing his actions to speak the volumeof his parts. His personality makes his character almost unpredictable and yet so predictable....   [tags: essays research papers] 2218 words

The love at first sight and concept of a soul mate are not only portrayed as the romanticized “true love” (a common theme in Disney films) but are questioned by reliance on physical attributes. The necessity to change in order to obtain that love is portrayed to extremity. The film’s focus on “true love”, and the self sacrifice made to obtain it, give the target audience a notion that it is not only acceptable, but mandatory, to alter one’s self in order to achieve acceptance and love....   [tags: Essays Papeers] 1078 words

All versions of this story have stressed the importance of being good and have even dwelled on the importance of looking behind appearance to see a person’s true nature. In order to convey his ideas and themes, Cocteau uses the beast as a lurking figure whose lack of appearance on the screen ultimately has a great effect on the viewer.

It was one of the most unforgettable impressions I have. You’d think that people would be panic-stricken, running, yelling. Not at Hiroshima. They moved in slow motion, like figures in a silent movie, shuffling through the dust and smoke. I heard thousands of people breathing the words, ‘water, give me water.’ Many simply dropped to the ground and died.” ~Setsuko Thurlow In a flash, 120,000 corporeal humans are destroyed....   [tags: Exploratory Research]

Gay and Lesbian Visibility in Movies and Television - The 1990s saw surge of gay characters in both television and movies. From Ellen Degeneres and her character Ellen Morgan coming out under much scrutiny on the TV show ‘Ellen,’ to Julia Roberts and Rupert Everett comedically playing off each other in the motion picture ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding.’ Sure, gays and lesbians have been around forever, especially in Hollywood. But never has there been a time to be more out. With the popularity of shows like Will and Grace, which feature leading gay characters, as well as Dawson’s Creek and it’s supporting character of teenager Jack McPhee, we are slowly seeing gay and lesbian characters creeping into the mainstream media....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

“Better and Richer and Fuller”: The Evasive Promises Derived from the American Dream - ... Americans from the same rung of the social ladder that Oprah once belonged to, have a greater need from money. Many of these people have low paying jobs, and must manage to pay a car payment, house payment, utilities, and not to mention the fees that come with children, if they have them. The United States Census Bureau reports that 12.5% of Americans are in poverty- which is nearly 37.3 million people, (Morgan, par. 1). Clearly, there is a need for money in America. The unfortunate part of the story is the fact that there is almost no chance that all 37.3 million Americans in poverty will win American Idol or win big with the lottery....   [tags: Advertising]

America, Wounded - ... Many were pulled from airline flights with little or no evidence connecting them to terrorism (“Criminal Profiling”). A Muslim lawyer, Brandon Mayfield, had been arrested by the FBI due to a possible connection to a terrorist attack in Madrid, Spain. FBI investigators later admitted that “religion played at least some part in the case”. Mayfield, himself, proposed that because he was a Muslim, FBI investigators ignored evidence that could prove his innocence (“Criminal Profiling”). Many cases like these are repeated throughout the time after 9/11, due to religious profiling and often have unfair outcomes for Muslim Americans involved....   [tags: Personal Liberties]

Technology - The Ethics of TiVo, DVR, and ReplayTV - The Ethics of TiVo, DVR, and ReplayTV     Abstract:  After a significant amount of debate and lawsuits about copyright and ethical issues surrounding VCRs in the 1980s, manufacturers and content-providers began to relax as consumers widely purchased the devices and in turn, began renting more videos.  In the end, everyone won as VCRs created a new movie rental market and also benefited consumers. But these days, technology does not need to be revolutionary to scare people and cause controversy; it only needs to be evolutionary.  In 1999, two companies - TiVo and Replay - introduced a slightly fancier VCR-like device called a digital video recorders (DVR) or a personal video recorder....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
