This logic does not deal with the nature of life, but deals with the more complex forms of logic that require the filling of blanks to make things work out. Although, for the most part certain things did not make sense, but yet they did express logic. They used environmental attributes to make sense of the complexities they had. The first application of logic found in the movie was in the first scene with the use of coconuts....   [tags: essays research papers] 436 words

Use of Logic in Monty Python and the holy grail - Monty Python and the Holy Grail Logic affects our lives everyday. We use it both subconsciously and consciously to make decisions which can be as important as our careers, or as insignificant as what to eat for lunch. Logic can also be used in other ways. Ironically, others’ bad logic can result in us learning something just as much as we learn from our own bad decisions. This is shown in Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail. One example of this ironic use of logic is with the trial of the witch....   [tags: essays research papers] 444 words

Postmodern Criticism of Monty Python’s King Arthur Skit - Monty Python’s King Arthur skit is full of structuralism dogma breaking moments. This analysis focuses on the first scene of the movie. The scene utilizes pre-conceived notions of movie structure, the publics’ awareness about leaders and prominent figures and the acknowledgement of the existence of life among cast extras to create a satirical adaptation of King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail. As the scene begins we hear the hooves of a horse coming from beyond the mist around the castle. The viewer, exposed to several scenes that reflect this setting in previous movies, expects to see someone riding a horse about to emerge, instead it is King Arthur and his servant that appear; both lacking horses....   [tags: Movies, Films] 774 words

After showing how female seduction in Malory’s story of King Arthur is crucial to the story as a whole, the student follows with an equally serious analysis of Monty Python’s parody of the female seduction motif in what may be the most memorable and hilarious episode of the film.

Without idealized images, codes of behavior, even idealized objects, mankind would have difficulty functioning. There would be a lack of context or criteria with which to judge objects that may be termed less than ideal. However, the problem with idealized images is that they can never be described fully, and certainly never attained. An example is the contemporary ideal of feminine beauty, which has led to countless problems such as depression and psychological dietary disorders among women who perceive themselves to be "inadequate." The more culturally emphasized an ideal is, the more ordinary people are made to feel inadequate....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Life of Brian as Historical Satire - Monty Python’s Life of Brian traces the tragic last year of Brian of Nazareth, a man who shares his exact birthday and town with Jesus Christ, the subject of countless biblical epic films. Comedy distinguishes this biopic, which features a male actor playing the analog of the Virgin Mary, a cured leper begging for alms, and spontaneous song on the crucifix. It is not sufficient, however, to relegate the film to parody, which seems the obvious criticism, simply for taking a comedic outlook. The unique style and construction of many scenes imply that comedy partially motivated the film, but other stimuli clearly contributed to its simple message....   [tags: Film Cinema Movie Parody Monty Python]

Themes in the Novel and Movie Adaptation of James Cain’s Mildred Pierce - Themes in the Novel and Movie Adaptation of James Cain’s Mildred Pierce In contemporary film making, “Hollywood-ization” generally refers to the re-creation of a classic work in a form more vulgar and sexually explicit than the original in an effort to boost movie attendance. After all, sex and violence sell. However, from the mid-1930’s to the 1950’s, “Hollywood-ization” referred to the opposite case where controversial books had to be purified to abide by the Production Code of 1934.[1] This occurred to many of James Cain’s novels as they moved from text to the genre of “film noir.” As has been said about Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice, “The property, bought several years ago, was kept in the studio’s archives until now because of [Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s] “inability to clean it up.””[2] The sanitation of Cain’s novels greatly took from the strong themes of female emotional and financial independence that were rarely addressed at that time as they were adapted for the screen....   [tags: Mildred Pierce Essays]

Love and Hate in James Cain's Mildred Pierce - Love and Hate in James Cain's Mildred Pierce       Some may say that the character Mildred Pierce of the novel, Mildred       Pierce by James Cain, may be a good role model for an entrepreneur or a       single working mother.  Some may say that she was hopelessly devoted to       her ungrateful daughter, Veda.  Some may also argue that Veda was a       terrible daughter who lacked compassion, sincerity, and most of all,       respect.  As true as that may all be, the candlelight glowing about the       flawless, sugar-coated heroine shall be blown out.  Fluorescent lights,       please.               Mildred Pierce loved her daughter.  Perhaps she had loved Veda too       much.  One questions how a woman can love such a bitch - a coloratura       soprano.  Could it have been another type of love?  Mildred had an       exaggerated sense of self-importance.  She felt the need for attention and       admiration from others, particularly Veda.  Mildred Pierce took people for       granted or exploited them with an unusual coolness.  Had Mildred Pierce       been a real person, and ever introduced to Sigmund Freud, the verdict       would be in.  Mildred Pierce suffers from Narcissism.  Another kind of       love, indeed!  She simply had fallen in love with her reflection (as the       disorder was named for the mythological Narcissus, who fell in love with       his own reflection) - Veda Pierce, that is.               In 1991, Sophie Freud, granddaughter of Sigmund Freud, explained that       the narcissistic mother has a great investment in her daughters.  The       survival of women greatly depends on loving, and whether she is loved.        Narcissistic actions are ambivalent.  "In order to develop into a woman       [the narcissist mother believes] a daughter needs sufficient libidinal       resources to identify with her female partner [mother]..." (Fenchel).        Mildred Pierce fits the description.  That must explain the sensual vibes       - but unfortunately Veda was not the type of daughter to want to identify       with her mother.  Mildred's character ached for approval from Veda.        Whether she could afford Veda's material desires did not matter.  Whether       Veda would hate her for it, did.  Everything that Mildred possibly could       not do, she wanted for Veda.  And yes, it is normal for parents to want a       better life for their children than they had, but putting up with snobbish       attitudes, constant denouncement, and utter disrespect is far from normal....   [tags: Cain Mildred Pierce Essays]

Stephanie Schneider, a public school teacher says “It’s like checking to make sure a plant is growing properly by repeatedly ripping it out of the ground and examining the roots. When that plant is placed back into the soil, it does not remain the same but rather is traumatized by the drastic act”(30). She argues that there are better ways of assessing where a child stands academically than forcing the student to take a standardized test against his or her will....   [tags: Standardized Testing Essays]

Review of A Hard Day's Night - "A Hard Day's Night" catches the first flaring of Beatlemania in a manner at once subtle and intelligent. The plot is simple: a day in the life of the Beatles as they try to make it to a performance, burdened by Paul's trouble-making grandfather (Wilfred Brambell); inept reporters, police, and studio moguls; and, of course, hordes of screaming teenage girls. All the while, the Beatles remain as laid back as can be, responding with dry, very British one-liners and shifting easily into melodic musical interludes, such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "All My Lovin'," and "I Wanna Be Your Man." This is the pre-Sergeant Pepper Beatles, and their pleasant, playful enthusiasm mirrors the general innocence of the early sixties, before Vietnam and LSD opened the eyes of millions to political injustices and self-explorations....   [tags: Movie Film Hard Day's Night Beatles] 1442 words
