    Dystopian Film

    • 774 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Somehow I find pure joy in watching two men or women display their superior ass kicking skills on one another. So much so that I endure movies with painfully corny and cliché story lines, all to watch Keanu Reeves in a well tailored suit show off his impressive mixed martial art abilities and military grade handling of assault rifles (John Wick). What the movie lacks in its plot more than graciously substitutes in for its incredibly stylish persona of John Wick, as well as a more than healthy heaping of high intensity, gut wrenching violence. On the other side of this twisted coin films such as Blue is the Warmest Color completely mesmerizes me with its incredibly raw and uncensored story telling, which most foreign films do exceptionally well. A miraculous blend of the arts, love,…

    something seems right doesn’t mean it is. A technical genius is expected to turn up to an interview in a suit, but real technical geniuses turn up looking like overworked hobos or World Of Warcraft veteran players. Is turning up in a $2000 suit going to get you a management job? Is turning up in a suit going to help you get a job as a wildlife vet? There are no right or wrong answers to these questions, but have you considered going against your intuitive answers? What about your attitude? The…

    The Matrix, on the other hand, is more than just a thought experiment. It is a narrative that is judged aesthetically, and as such its success requires that its creators produce something that will captivate and engage an audience. Carroll has asserted that, narratives, far from being complete, have gaps which need to be filled by the audience. That is, creators of narratives do not spell-out every detail of the narrative, instead, narratives rely on the elicitation of moral emotions from an…

    Christopher Reeve, Superman, once said “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” This shows that anyone who keeps going can be a hero, not just the people with the title and the cape. Reeve is saying that in order to be a hero all you have to do is persevere and endure overwhelming obstacles and do your best to reach the top. Reeve may have been a hero playing Superman in the movies, but in real life became a hero after…

    What is heroism? When I think of the word heroism I think of great bravery. Phillip Zimbardo once said, “To be a hero it means you must step across the line and are willing to make a sacrifice. Hero’s always take a risk. Hero’s always are deviant. Hero’s always are doing something that most people don’t and we want to change.” The truth is any of us can be a hero. Although someone who shows great bravery is everyone’s typical idea of a hero, a true hero is just someone who is genially a good…

    The subject on the assigned essay is, “How do you define a hero?” Well that is easy. One could just run to a bookshelf, pull a dictionary and state, “A hero is a person admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” Or perhaps one would define a hero as someone who has superpowers and flies around saving people. Even one of my favorite bands, Nickelback, makes a hero out to be a man constantly looking out for the innocent waiting to save them and then flying…

    A true hero is one who finds the courage, willpower, and passion to help others in their character. Once these three characteristics are met, any individual will have the strength in them to endure even the toughest challenges life can throw at them. Welles Crowther certainly had all three aspects of character.

    A lot can happen within sixty seconds which allows the possibility of life changing events that can impact our routines, values, beliefs and maybe the outlook on life itself. Some of which can have one feeling the need of self-reevaluation or soul searching. I sat at my desk while at work. Then, I received a short and rushed phone call from my sister. She had gone to a doctor’s appointment that morning for a routine pregnancy checkup. Unfortunately, her blood pressure was higher than normal, and…
