The apartment was dark and silent. Alex sighed and flipped on the kitchen light. She put her purse on the counter and kicked off her shoes. She regretted that she hadn’t saved a beer this afternoon to have right now. Still, the quiet, empty apartment was welcome.
Alex’s cellphone started to ring in her purse. The read out was an unknown number.
“Hello?” Alex answered as she limped into the living room and flopped onto the couch.
“Hi, this is Clint Barton,” the voice on the other line said.
“The guy watching my apartment. Nice to finally talk to you,” Alex said with a smile.
“Likewise. Watching the apartment is why I’m calling. Did you just get home ‘cause lights just turned on.” Clint explained.
“I did. Do you want me to call when I come and go or give you my schedule or something?” She didn’t want someone to know where she was at every second. It was annoying and made her feel like she was seventeen again. Her parents had tried to impose a curfew on her and she was gone for three days and almost joined a motorcycle gang. However, she knew that her parents wouldn’t call the SWAT team to kick in her door if she didn’t phone when she said she would.
“You don’t sound like you like that idea.”
“No offence, but I don’t like any of this.”
“You weren’t the one that has been sitting here looking at dark windows for hours.”
“Point taken, but it doesn’t look like there is anythi...

...n a slow circle. Alex doubted that he would be in plain sight, but her instincts told her that he would come back here. Most of his memories came from his time in Brooklyn. It only made sense that when he came to his senses, he would come here. She walked to a nearby convenience store and bought a pack of gum along with a bottle of Mountain Dew.
She wandered around Brooklyn as long as she could. She was smart enough to stay on the main streets and not checking out the alleys where he would probably be hiding. Finally, she had to admit defeat and walked back toward the subway. As she got to the stairs, she got the sudden feeling as if someone was watching her. Alex stopped and started digging in her bag and she slowly turned as if trying to get more sunlight to see what she was looking for. She didn’t see anyone openly looking at her, but the feeling was still there.

- In Her (Spike Jonze, 2013), Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) is a lonely husband who is socially disconnected from the word. The first few scenes demonstrates the fact Theodore can act socially and romantically but contrasts these with a sense of melancholia. The first scene depicts his social skills with other characters but also establishes the fact he is disconnected from other people.

- ... When things cool down, they both go up to his apartment to have a serious conversation. This is where things get so heated. Something weird happened; Ronny flipped the table and made out with Loretta because, instantly, on film I felt this sort of I’ve never felt with her husband to be.

There were several things that were going on at the same time amongst them which resulted in sub plots in the film which included, Loretta’s father Cosmo was basically with another woman while the mother introduced herself...

- Attention Getter. Fairy tales portray the idea that anything is possible for someone no matter the person or their social class. The fairy tale of Cinderella tells a story of a woman who has nothing in life, but, with help, finds a prince with whom she lives “happily ever after.” The fairy tale, however, fails to acknowledge that there is any love between the prince and Cinderella, a key aspect of a relationship. The movie Pretty Woman, directed by Garry Marshall, illustrates the Cinderella idea that a man knows what he wants in a woman, but also that he must be in love.... [tags: movie, cultural]

- Psycho: Film Analysis Just about everyone can voice their opinions on a film that viewed as we all do after leaving the theatre. It may be found to be useful when a friend or individual is interested in seeing the film themselves. However, I believe the only way that you could understand a film is by analyzing the film beyond the average person. When one begins to analyze they begin to develop an understanding of the film and may grow to love the film. The director Hitchcock is a fairly well known director....

- For this assignment, I decided to analyze a scene from the movie For Colored Books (2010), which was based off of Ntozake Shange’s 1975 play for colored who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf. The scene that I will discuss follows the “lady in yellow,” also known as Yasmine, played by Anika Noni Rose. The scene is an example of how a rapist does not have to be a stranger. This particular scene in the movie was difficult to watch for two reasons. The first being that Yasmine had invited a man, Bill, over to her home that she believed was a good man....

- Is the “American Dream” dead. The Answer is simple: the dream is not dead. The “American Dream” in my mind is being able to rise and become anybody you want to be such as being the provider in your family or simply making it big by being a millionaire. Many say the dream is dead such as former Labor Secretary Robert Reich in his documentary, Inequality for All. He states the country has a wide economic gap between the poor and rich. The reason for this is many people don’t work for the “American Dream.” Many people just rely on the government just to take care of them, when they should be out working for that dream of making it in life....

- Recently, American Cinema has been the victim of countless horror movies that are aimed at the teen audiences and based on some type of urban legend. Films such as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream, and The Blair Witch Project pollute numberless aisles of video rental stores. These films are badly conceived and produced; they fail to elicit any emotion resembling fear, doing a better job at causing a movie viewer to chuckle at the mediocrity of their inherent horror. The Ring is a screenplay by Ehren Kruger and directed by Gore Verbinski that is wonderfully more terrifying than other urban legend "horror" movies of recent production....
