    Great 1. I believe that to “seize the day” means to suck all the marrow out of life. You must grab every opportunity life gives you and make the best of it. Don’t just stop and smell the roses, you have to taste the roses, feel the roses, and be the roses! That is the difference between seizing the day and seizing the opportunity. The opportunity will sometimes seize you, but you must seize the day. It will never seize you. This is what “seize the day” meant to Thoreau. 2. To “live deliberately”

    Fair?enheit 9/11 It was a typical Saturday at Florida State University. The Noles has defeated, pretty decisively, UNC and the people were conducting normal activities.

    The Roman poet, Juvenal, once said that, "Revenge is always the weak pleasure of a little and narrow mind." Most people would agree with Juvenal that revenge is an abhorrent human need that can only satisfy narrow-minded people. Even though, we know revenge will generally not bring us much satisfaction, we still constantly lust for taking revenge on someone. It is because revenge is such a natural part of human nature that writers so often use it as their theme. Revenge can easily be an awe-inspiring

    As muscle-bound figures such as the Terminator and Rambo stormed big screen, it was also during this period that we witnessed the ostensive arrival of “racially sensitive” buddy cop films. Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) directed by Richard Donner is a buddy cop film, which portrays a more subtle ‘modern’ type of racism. In saying so, the film examines inter-racial relationships attempting to diminish racial issues and present characters with equity in order to give comfort and reassurance to a wider ethnic

    interpretations this is an important part. Two examples of different interpretations are a pair in the 90’s directed by two well known men, for completely different purposes.

In comparison to that blockbuster, Branagh’s version was seven years later: an arts film with himself as the lead. The 90’s Hamlet was set in a medieval castle in Scotland.

    Franco Zefferelli's film Hamlet Franco Zefferelli’s film, Hamlet, adapted from Shakespeare’s text, Mel Gibson’s Hamlet, struts and frets his life in Denmark, convincing almost everyone that he is “mad.” The film bases the question of whether or not Hamlet is actually insane almost solely on Gibson’s acting interpretations, but Zefferelli’s editing choices assist in making the point that Hamlet is not insane, but either in a fog of confusion and anger from his grief, or pretending to be mad

    Hamlet is often seen as one of the most well known examples of an Oedipus Complex presented in literature. The reasons for this is probably because of the plot that resolves around the revenge that Hamlet has against his step-father Claudius and because of the relationship that Hamlet has with his mother that is loaded with sexual energy. Hamlet's love for his mother is especially exemplified by the Mel Gibson's interpretation of the infamous closet scene. Traditionally a Queen's closet was not
