    As humans, we all are full of different genealogies that may branch back to the American Indians, Pioneers, or even to the other six continents, however, it shouldn’t matter where we come from, as long as we have a purpose to do some good in the world. Our ancestors did just that.

By coming here, they made America what it was always meant to be, a melting pot. The melting pot of America can be taken either in a good or bad perspective, but in the end, it changed American culture and is the reason most of us are here today. I will be defending the opinion of the author by using facts she has given and the rhetorical tools. Our author opens us up with a conversation between her and a Russian man at a hotel, before she goes to Ellis Island. They talk about each other’s ethnic backgrounds, their love for history, and the island itself. Then the rest of the article, the structure, goes into ancestry, genealogy, Ellis Island’s past, and the roles of immigrants in the United States.

    That said, and while there are certain aspects to enjoy about the latest imagining of Tarzan in The Legend of Tarzan, it’s still painfully obvious that this jungle dweller should be left undisturbed for an extended amount of time. In The Legend of Tarzan, directed by David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 & 2), Alexander Skarsgård stars as Tarzan/John Clayton III – who no longer resides in the jungle, but in his family’s wealthy estate with his wife, Jane Porter (Margot…

    since there is no English, it can be kind of confusing, unless you read the movie description online. I think the movie would have benefitted from a shorter introduction with written descriptions of what was happening. I also noticed that at several points throughout the movie that the lighting was really low, even when the scenes were set during the day. However, the lighting seems to get better as the movie goes on. One thing I loved about the movie was the music. It was moving and fit the…
