The movie did leave me unsatisfied with its loss of an important scene that can cause confusion. Yet, the fast paced action scenes left me feeling enthralled and hooked. Adding on to that, the main character’s personality stayed true to the book without a feeling that something is missing. The movie, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is far more exciting and appealing because of its heart racing action and true characters that keep the audience glued to the screen. The movie has left an unfavorable taste in my mouth with the unfortunate loss of Tom and Huck’s hunt for treasure.
In one scene, Phil is seen spying on nymphs bathing in a pond, thus portraying a creepy and perverted voyeurism aspect associated with short and ugly men. The most obvious body-type that is depicted is Hercules. He starts as a scrawny outcast, and becomes a huge, ripped hero. Hercules’ body image transformation in the song ‘Zero to Hero’ instills in the audience the conception that men should be big and strong to protect women instead of scrawny thin losers. He is also portrayed as extremely handsome with perfect white teeth, golden flowing hair, and blue eyes to set another ridiculously high standard of beauty for young impressionable boys.
It took me a couple views in order to fully understand the plot as there is a ton of scenes connecting every character or groups of character together. The RocknRolla by Guy Ritchie is a very entertaining movie. A little confusing at first but contains great actors who all seemed to be having a great time creating this film. I find the value behind this movie in the humor brought to light by the actors. This added benefit gives a whole new contrast and dimension from the main story line.
This film is likeable because it goes against what we’ve grown used to as far as comedic movies go. It demonstrates relatable humor, giving you ultimately a feeling of connection with the characters, also the acting talent is so accurate you at times actually feel sorry or even happy for the characters. Although this movies main purpose is to make you laugh, one can learn life lessons from this movie. For example you should always keep your charm, and stay humble during stressful times. Although it is a comedic film, it discusses real conflicts seen in people’s lives and gives a good name to the movie genre,
All they discover is his clothes and a frog in them; Delmar is convinced that that was in fact Pete himself. The fact that Delmar believes that the sirens turned Pete into a frog resembles the scene when Circe turns Odysseus’ men into pigs. Although Pete was not really turned into a frog, it symbolizes how they are punished for being on a journey with Everett. Same can be said of Odysseus’ men. They are punished for being on this grand journey with a man that has many faults including pride.
Hop Frog as a Love Story "Hop Frog", by Edgar Allan Poe, is a short story in which the title character, after enduring much abuse by the king, gets revenge in the end. Hop Frog is not only the king's jester, but is also a handicapped dwarf. The king perpetually berates Hop Frog and plays practical jokes on his poor jester. At one point, king and his seven ministers summon Hop Frog before them so that he may give them ideas for an upcoming masquerade. The king forces him to drink wine (which Hop Frog always has an adverse reaction to drinking) and becomes very upset at him.
All of which are typical of being a main character. Is interesting how in the movie Everett was a terrible fighter, unlike Odysseus. In every situation he was beat up and later had to defeat the opponent with his brains. Odysseus was most definitely a "Dapper Dan Man". One connection for this could be that it shows the character's arrogance by always having to look and smell good all the time or how they are both so self-important.
As Ignatius faints from shock, he shows the reader how awkward and clumsy he is. He has the chance to avoid everything that happens but his dunce tendencies take control. He is ridiculed by everyone at the scene for his possession of Lana Lee's naked pictures and ends up being the comedian and clown for the hour. Ignatius looks like a "dead cow lying in the street" according to the newspaper photograph and the reader sees the reactions to the incident from every character(289). Mr. Clyde sees Ignatius as "a big ape" and only wishes that he can retrieve his costume from him(293).
The issue arises with the process by which Mack and the boys use to fund the party. The green frogs harvested ultimately causes Mack and the boys to succumb to greed in an effort to praise Doc. The collection of frogs used as a currency is what sends Doc into a rage. The triviality of frogs becomes a major theme throughout “Cannery Row” as a symbol of subjective greed. Doc needs Mack and the boys to get frogs for him only because he does not have the time when a tide is coming in and the boys do.
There are many forms of expression inside of everybody; however the most common form is laughter. The sound of laughter can be heard all around the worlds every second, it helps us relieve stress and makes us feel better about ourselves. Comedy movies play such an important role in helping us laugh. There are many forms of movies out there today. In spite of the recent incline in action and horror movies today, comedy movies has always been my number one choice because it gives people an opportunity to look at humor in life, it usually has a pointless, useless moral that we can relate to, and it allows you to look at things in a new light and possibly expand your horizon to become a more optimistic person.
