The head of the aliens, Gerald, began saying him and his race only came to Earth to take over, and he explained how they tricked the people into thinking that living alongside them would be nothing but... ... middle of paper ... ... life. For the cons, (this out way the pros) there would be war and violence, and the aliens taking over and locking up all the inhabitants on earth. The earth will go from very colorful with many natural resources to colorless and all the resources depleted of from Earth. Overall, having an alien race living on Earth and taking over would only cause Earth to be destroyed and would not be a good idea. The landscape would be nothing but brown, food will be fought over, and the animals of the Earth would all start to fight and violence will fill the air.
Like the stormtroopers in the original three Star Wars films, the battle droids small talk with each other and display some basic personality traits. In one episode, as a jedi is about to slay a droid, the droid cries out: “But I just got a promotion!” Grievous and Dooku, as previously mentioned, do not value the individual droids at all. Grievous destroys several more of them in the series, and Dooku sees them only in terms of money spent. However, by giving the droids at least a basic amount of individuality, scenes in which they get killed have at least a slight emotional impact on the viewer. They become more than just factory made replicas.
Veidt is fashioned like a hero, but acts like a villain. He can be misinterpreted as a villain but in fact is a superhero. His plan that can be considered both good and evil is to save the world, “the cost in millions, is slight when compared to the billions whom Ozymandias believes that he has saved” (Robinson 101 FROM BOOK NO SOURCE). His plan is to trick the U.S. and the Soviet Union into thinking that there is an alien monster and the only way to defeat it is to make peace with one another and focus on the alien that could end their entire world. Before Veidt is able to execute his plan Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan and Nite Owl try and stop him.
This movie introduced many revolutionary concepts; the two most prominent of these are the female heroine and the new design for a terrifying alien life form and its surroundings that gave a less perfect view of space. What makes the movie "Alien" so terrifying is the concept that life in outer space is pure evil. Before 1979, most movies portrayed aliens as friendly creature that came in peace and wanted to help humanity. This new Alien was so different and had revolutionary special effects; that the creation of an alien creature won an Oscar for "Best Achievement for Visual Effects" April14th, 1980. The creator and designer of the alien creature was H. R Giger, born in Born in Chur, Germany, 1940.
These aliens explain to Billy that moments happen as they are meant to happen. When Billy asks the aliens why they chose to abduct him, the aliens tell him, “Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why” (Vonnegut 77). This view of life helps Billy to have a new understanding of the death and destruction he sees during the war. Since people do not choose to kill but are destined to do so, Billy is able to reconcile the cruelty he has seen.
Unfortunately, Charlie has to undergo many challenges: the loss of friends, lack of emotional advancement, discovering people are not as nice as they seem, discovery of "The Algernon-Gordon Effect", and the rapid decline of his intelligence. Flowers for Algernon is a science fiction novel; it is different from our perception of science fiction, but it is science fiction by definition, and science fiction does not have to be in the future. Our perception of science fiction is only futuristic rather than science, such as experimental medicine. For example, everybody thinks of books such as Divergent as science fiction, because they are futuristic, but not medical science fiction, like Flowers for Algernon. When people think of science fiction, quotes such as “‘We use a more advanced version of the simulation here,’ he says, ‘a different serum, no wires and electrodes for you.’” (Roth 231) from Divergent.
We see the alien as a monster because he terrorizes and kills the crew. Also “Mother” which is the ships computer that offers advice and guidance like a mother would is also seen as a monster because it abandons the crew, which is seen as an un-motherly thing to-do. And last we see the shadowy Corporation that the Nostromo is working for. Its complete disregards for the crew by inviting the alien onboard the ship. All of these monsters are interconnected by the fact that each of them are not a single person nor human.
As I have illustrated in these examples, science fiction can be the major genre of a story or it can be merely a piece within a story. Such a debatable concept as this one can be extremely difficult to completely define. For now, we’ll have to settle for a general definition such as the one I have written above, but perhaps in the future someone will define science fiction more clearly. Of course, if we limit the term science fiction to a clear-cut definition, will science fiction have such wonderful stories as it does now or will they end up being bland, repetitive stories? I believe that science fiction will never have a single definition because that just happens to be the nature of the genre.
He defies God, just like the Greek story of Prometheus. Since the monster escaped, he cannot take it upon himself to realize that it could be potentially dangerous. He should man up and just get over it. Later on in the story when the monster destroys everything dear to him, Frankenstein learns that only God has the ability t... ... middle of paper ... ...new species will arise and terrorize humans. Since he refused, the monster becomes angry and kills the doctor’s newlywed, Elizabeth.
