Labyrinth
“I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave” (Labyrinth). Labyrinth is a movie about a teenage girl that does not want to babysit her baby brother and wishes him to be gone. When the Goblin King takes him, he gives her thirteen hours to solve a labyrinth and rescue her brother. If she doesn’t save her brother in the thirteen hours he will stay with the Goblin King forever. While she is in the labyrinth she meets friends that help her solve the labyrinth.

The one friend that helped her out throughout the whole labyrinth is Hoggle. At first he does not act like her friend as he is afraid of what the Goblin King will do to him if he helps her. At the end, Hoggle does help Sara and they become good friends. I liked Hoggle he wasn’t perfect, but he represents many modern day friendships. For example, Hoggle is like the girl in a clique that only has friends that are approved by the leader in the clique. If the girl disobeys the leader, she faces the consequences. The good thing is that true friendship wins at the end. Sara and Hoggle have their good and their bad times. In the movie, Sara says to Hoggle, “You 're horrible!” (Labyrinth). Sara says this to Hoggle because he would lead her on the wrong path to not make the Goblin King think that he was helping Sara, but he would always give up and help her. Hoggle is my second favorite character in the movie because everyone thinks he is bad, but he means

    Gertrude fits this description well because she makes rash decisions without thinking things over. Not even a year after King Hamlet’s death and she chooses to marry Claudius, without knowing how treacherous and ruthless he is. The reliance and relationship she has with Claudius clouds her thoughts causing her to easily succumb to his temptation. These rash decisions hinder her relationship with other characters such as Hamlet. For instance, Hamlet in anger shouts at Gertrude, “A bloody deed; almost as bad, good mother, as kill a king, and marry with his brother” (III.iv.28-29).…

    Polonius put his job on the line to prove his certainty, which was a move filled with haste and a limited amount of proof.

Gertrude is quite selfish because she never thinks that her actions could be the main cause of Hamlet’s depression. Gertrude also shows a lack of devotion because she threw away her love for King Hamlet just two months after his death.…

    In this case with Hamlet, his inability to act upon his vows leads to negative consequences. Because he does not act to kill Claudius as swiftly as he mentioned to the ghost of his father, other people whom he loves dies in place of him. For example, Ophelia is a young noblewoman from Denmark and is the daughter of the most trusted advisor, Polonius. She is also the potential wife for Prince Hamlet as the two of them spend most of their free time together. Hamlet with all his madness and inability to choose a specific time to kill the King, ends up killing Polonius after having a heated conversation with his mother.…
