...rate and perfect love, when realistically love is flawed and so are the people involved in it. Relationships are not made of sparkles and rainbows, and sometimes they include people of different races, backgrounds, and sexualities together when fairytales only show the same cookie cutter idea of what love should be. Also, they cannot show that love is a gradual thing, compared to the instantaneous thing that is presented to children, and sometimes the some imperfect people that fall in love will realize that they didn’t fall in love with the right person from the start. Children should be shown that love is not perfect, and that the prince, princess, and knight that they so long for will not come along, and instead that person will be an ordinary person they find at school, a coffee shop, or somewhere else they visit, and they will be just as happy with that instead.

- Stephen King wrote a very brief essay titled "Why we Crave Horror Movies", in which he explained some of the reasons that people choose to go to horror movies to be entertained. In his essay, King goes on to explain that we as a people need horror movies as a sort of release; to feed the darker elements within all of us without having to sacrifice our humanity (also, civility). King does this by comparing people based on their levels of sanity whereas some societal "eccentricities" are completely acceptable, while some will get you thrown right into the loony bin....

- Love can be seen anywhere. We see it in movies, as the young boy falls in love with the pretty young girl. A mother sharing a bond with their child. We hear it in the music we listen to. We all have that one person that makes us feel all warm and nice when were around them. It’s not something taught or learned it just comes naturally. Sometimes you don’t understand how it happens or you can’t really comprehend it, but one thing you do know, is that it’s called love. Love is something that can be felt spiritually or emotionally....

- Reading was never something I fussed about growing up. As a child, I loved genres of realistic fiction. I was hooked on The New Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley, Goosebumps, The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes, Judy Moody, and especially, Zoobooks and Highlights magazines. My mother was always ready to help build my reading and writing skills. She took me to the library constantly to feed my passion for books and knowledge. I loved exploring the shelfs, organizing the books, and filling up my library cart.... [tags: High school, Middle school, Love, Brothers Grimm]

- “She’s been through more hell than you’ll ever know. But that’s what gives her beauty an edge… You can’t touch a woman who can wear pain like the grandest of diamonds around her neck.” (Alfa©). Miles Halter had no idea what was in store for him when he transfer to his dad’s old prep school. He certainly didn’t prepare for rooming with a short chunky boy nicknamed “The Colonel”, who knew every capital and populations of every country in the world. He also didn 't prepare for Taxumi, the rapper with the fox hat, or Lara, the quiet Russian girl who was his first girlfriend and date.... [tags: Mother, Father, Love, Family]

- It is quite easy to believe that being a Christian only involves attending church every Sunday and celebrating the holy holidays such as Christmas and Easter. However, part of being a Christian is to go out into the community and spread the good news. While the goal is not to convert every person we come across, it is important that we spread God’s word and love. I worship at Faith Presbyterian Church and one of the ways that we embody Christ’s love is by helping feed the homeless population in New Orleans....

- Do you think Disney movies are worthy of adult watching. I do not think so. I do not think that I want to see them in a cinema and pay for them because their stories are childish and very far away from a real world. Moreover, when the main character is a princess, mostly she falls in love with a cool man and the story ends with the success in love. It is very boring that I can suppose the climax scene of the movie. However, “Frozen” is the most exciting and impressive movie I have ever seen, and it ends with the climax which is beyond my expectation.... [tags: Sibling, Interpersonal relationship, Love, Romance]

- The Western as Commentary about Decaying Values The Western, as a genre, is subversive of the values that its Christian characters possess. Western films frequently depict social depravity in terms of the mythology that developed during westward expansion. The mythology was inspired by the threat of the frontier wilderness to Puritan culture. In order to preserve their society, some Puritans departed from their ideal Christian lives. Western films portray compromises that cultures make of the values that they define themselves by in order to protect the integrity of their other values....

- Latino Gangs in Movies American filmmakers of the late twentieth century portrayed Latinos as merciless pursuers of the "American Dream". The Latino immigrants were characterized as "Urban Bandidos", seeking the path to ultimate wealth and power in a society dominated by Anglo authority. West Side Story, Fort Apache, and Scarface each portrayed the Latino character differently, but commonly depicted the "Urban Bandido" as a man in search of money and power in America. Not only do these immigrants fight for the warped American dream, but they often fight without fear, willing to risk almost anything to reach the top.... [tags: Movies Films Gangs Violence Essays]

- Young Goodman Brown: The Puritans and Love Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown”, exposes the puritan view of love and relationships. In theory, these two visions are diametrically opposed. One exalts love as a physical manifestation between two individuals (although it also claims to represent higher ideals), the other sees it as a spiritual need, one best manifested by attachment to God. In fact, the puritans did not see love as a good thing, but rather as an evil, a grim necessity, that is, they saw physical love (between a man and a woman, or sexuality and all it carries with it) as such....

- Movies When I was a kid (not that long ago, thank you), movies made me dream of what my life would be like when I grew up. After coming back from a great movie, I could sit in my room for hours and fantasize about the worlds I would see and the places I would visit outside my bedroom window, the places that only exist in that narrow, nebulous space between dreaming and waking. As I grew older, "wiser" and less innocent, I realized that those moments of fantasy can only be captured for a moment.... [tags: Papers]
