The fake trailers displayed in the movie poke fun of some movies we have seen in recent years come out and the times we wish were not sitting in a movie theatre watching their trailers. One example is when Stuart Cornfield introduces the movie called, “Scorcher 6,” which seems to be one of the many, overdone sequels. Further analyzing the satirical humor, this is the first example of contextual humor because you may not find this funny if you have never been to a movie theatre or lived in the United States. We know of many movies that should have never continued such as, Mission Impossible, Rocky, and some others. “Scorcher 6” definitely seems like a new Tom Cruise movie where he comes in and saves the world, against all odds, and becomes a hero.
Also my parents were amazed at how the father may not have shown how much he really cared for his children and the same goes for the children’s aspect of the father but deep down inside there was plenty of love for each other just a lack of communication. I think this too happens in many American house holds , mine quite possibly being one of those families. To sum it all up this movie actually gave me a whole new outlook on life and family situations and I hope I was able to explain to you how the terms related from the movie and other references that I have chosen. I do plan to take another course in psychology next semester and hope that such projects as this one are assigned to me so I can further open my mind to things that I might have never even thought of watching or reading before it was assigned.
Although the historical context of the film received a great deal of criticism for its historical inaccuracies, it served as a learning tool for the many people who had not heard of the events.

For instance in the film Argo (2012) the images displayed during the ending credits show still shots from the film and actual pictures from the event. The images are almost identical, which leads viewers to believe what they are watching is historically accurate. As most Hollywood films are produced on large budgets, aspects of the film become so realistic it ... ... middle of paper ... ... are watching and remember it is being filtered to entertain and make money.

After discovering that Aihara attempted to commit suicide, Fusako and Aihara officially get divorced. Often times, Fusako gets angry with Shingo for letting her marry someone like Aihara. In one argument, Fusako tells Shingo how her husband was a mess and therefore she is mess.
