    Star Wars, by George Lucas, is an excellent movie. This movie is filled with archetypal and mythic patterns, and the ideas represented in the film are essential ingredients to human emotion.

The religious connections become apparent when aspects of the movie are analyzed. Star Wars opens with a deserte...

    The Return of the Je diCale ScheinbaumJim Monson is Society and Religion 19 November 1996 So far this semester, we have studied several different sociological theories of religion. These theories are built on both the known history of religions in the world and the cultures in which they originated, as well as, appropriately enough, theoretical suggestions of how those religions, and indeed any religion at all, will survive in the future. The theory I find the most true is Stark and Bainbridge's...

    The Sixth Sense Many movies today do not have plots. They consist of computer-generated images, poor acting due to the non-realistic aspects of the movies, and relatively bad overall story lines. This is mostly due to the fact that the director is more concerned with the special effects. This can be seen in the movie Star Wars: Episode One: The Phantom Menace. Its story line was weak, and the acting was poor due to the fact that most of it was special effects. Don't get me wrong, the special eff...

    1970 s Hollywood has been characterized as a "renaissance" and a "revolutionary" decade, mostly because of the exceptional artistic and personal filmmaking that flourished in the early part of the decade after a period of industrial decline in the '60 s, and that found popular acceptance with a young, critically attuned audience craving something new. As Warren Beatty put it, the "lunatics" were briefly "running the asylum," as young directors, writers, and actors gained a measure of creative fr...
