Is Death A Bad Thing?

- In life some of us spend our time devoted to finding thrill, maybe even the next best exciting thing.

It 's a beautiful watch, but something flashy will only attract attention....   [tags: English-language films, Thing]

Though at a very superficial level the fight was about the loud stereo, the real significance of the fight had more to do with the culmination of anger and tension between the characters of the film caused by pre...   [tags: Movies Film Do the Right Thing Essays]
