Hollywood is constantly altering the plot of novels to appeal to certain crowds. Sometimes these alterations can be beneficial to the storyline while other times they can detract from it. Not too long ago, on May 1, 2013, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was made into a movie for the second time. The novel, being one of America’s most famous works, set high standards for the movie. This film featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, turned out to be very popular.
This shows has numerous amounts of sex scenes, showing what a womanizer Hank can be every chance they get. One of the most “bad sex” happens right after the “good sex” had happened. After Karen had rejected him Hank goes back to his old depressed ways. Drinking and having sex with random girls. However, the one that happens right after the rejection is thanks to his best friend, Charlie, who had been in a very heavy argument with his wife and decided that each should sleep with all the people they missed out on sleeping with all the years they were married.

The class also opened me up to a massive list of great directors I never knew before. These directors are some of the best storytellers that have told a story with a camera. I used to believe that older movies were good, but I shouldn’t spend as much time on them as I should the movies of the recent past (The Graduate being the one of the oldest that I considered a masterpiece). This class entirely blew that out of the water. Since this class has
We're all living in the same physical world, but when it comes to knowing what's going on around us is a different story. Two people can sit through the same event and remember it differently. This may be due to fact one's mind works like a filter through which memory is formed. We all use our experiences from the past to relate to our new experiences. Whether we are using our emotions or our beliefs, we're bound to perceive the past differently.
“Discoveries can challenge or renew our perceptions of ourselves, others and the world” The challenging nature of a sudden or unexpected discovery can alter an individual’s perspective in various ways, resulting in the re-evaluation of a human beings belief, values and behaviour. The journey of discovery in which an individual accomplishes new insights and perspectives, allows them to procure understanding into their own individuality, as well as being able to envision their strengths and weakness. The notion of a discovery challenging or renewing an individual’s perception is examined in both William Shakespeare’s tragic comedy play ‘the Tempest’ and in William Ernest Henley’s stanzaic poem ‘Invictus’. Both author 's use language features

() Plato underpinned the probability of taking in memory; he said that everything was known from the prior or "before life" and that our taking in embody an approach of memory and not of revelation.

Sometimes is also a problem with fallacies like hasty generalization. Can we therefore with reason reliably extrapolate the knowledge obtained in the human sciences into the future? I may conclude my discussion by saying that both historian’s and human scientist’s tasks are to some extent similar because they all try to understand its area of knowledge.
History is an area of knowledge that helps us understand past events through gathered evidence from over time. Therefore, it is important to note that history can sometimes be recorded in a way that events are not exactly portrayed. The evidence we continuously gather can be flawed because it may not illustrate the real circumstances of a particular event, especially when we are not there to experience it firsthand. For that reason, history is constantly being reevaluated and updated. Knowledge in history is not simply discarded; rather we revise what we know of our history so that it can be improved.
