The film begins with a sixteen-year-old girl named Cady Heron who just moved to Evanston, Illinois from a twelve year research trip in Africa with her parents.

Cady befriends them to seek revenge on Regina since, she ruined one of Cady’s friend’s life, Janis. The film is fill with many rumors and drama that eventually breaks throughout the whole junior class in high school. At the end of the film, Cady apologizes to everyone who got involve with the rumors and drama and everyone became friends with each other.

    drug-free. However, she is not a hero in this movie, maybe even far from it. She starts out as an outlaw hero that murders in order to survive. Then she transforms into a villain when she becomes Jigsaw’s assistant and does not abide by the rules of his game by not giving the victims the chance to live. She is this type of villain because she doesn’t have a backstory that makes her sympathetic to the audience. In “No Sympathy for the Devil”, the author argues that in Dexter, the television show,…

In contrast, Men’s Health magazine targets men between the ages 18-30, who have an interest in their health and sex lives. According to Susan Bordo in almost every advertisement we see “men act and women appear”, these two ads are no…

    behind at directing a movie is what gives this movie a big drop of quality and makes it feel insipid. The script on the other hand is mediocre and tends to go for the easy laugh, most of the writing he does for one of his TV shows would have a better quality than this. The essence of the first movie I lost at some point during the film as a lot of scenes seems to be forced into the equation in order to obtain something from it. The voice work is the only thing that really works for Seth in this…

    was written geared to a young adult audience. The movie did have good dialog which had some references some adults can understand while having today’s language. Where there’s superhuman powers, there must be a fight. Sci-fi films must have at least one action scene. Twilight reaches its climax when both powerful vampires, Edward and James, go head to head.
