Casino Royale

- Daniel Craig’s new James Bond in Casino Royale breathes fresh life into what had become, in my opinion, a rather tired and worn out concept - a striking achievement, considering Casino Royale was Ian Fleming’s first novel in the series, written in 1953.

The film strikes me as being more violent than previous Bond films, showing him cleaning up after the action - indeed, some of his injuries as portrayed were genuine, according to The Ticket, November 2006....   [tags: Film Review]

Eileen Zurbriggen, a professor of psychology at University of California, comments on the effects that playing with Barbie has on girls’ ideas on careers: "Playing with the Barbie suppresses their ideas about their own possible futures, but their ideas about the boys didn't change” (qtd. in Alter). It is true that Barbie has all of these fancy things, but Barbie is a hard-working girl who has had a collection of different careers.

Dorothy Parker’s Big Blonde

- The struggle for power between men and women in this story is mainly witnessed through interactions in which the female is not living up to what the men want. This makes women, like Hazel, easily replaceable in the lives of men. Women only control the power when they are agreeable therefore Parker creates women who are tapped with no plausible way to obtain power, other than being agreeable and well liked. The reader sees how detached Hazel appears to be from other women in this story. She can’t understand why they are allowed to be sad but when she appears sad she’s told to smile and how nobody wants to hear about other’s troubles....   [tags: literary analysis, power, women]
