    "Natural Born Killers," Psycho," Friday the 13 th," and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" are all horror films. In these films there is always some crazy person or monster-like character that goes around and slaughters innocent people. And usually, but not all the time the killer is killed at the end of the movie. The media publishes or broadcasts stories that say that horror films influence people to imitate these wrongful acts of violence. I believe that these movies do not influence people to im...

    The representation of violence exacted upon women in cinema is inextricable from being projected upon all women. To provide a scene that objectifies the female is to reduce the feminine form to its non-dual state, e. g. , a sexual object providing a vessel for male gratification (hubris and sexual) rather then being defined by its duality of sentient and physical forms. Those who construct scenes of violence against women are bound to a moral responsibility to subjectify the woman's perspective,...

    Oliver Stone's Portrayal of the Effects of Violent Media When I was young the only time I willingly woke up early was on Sunday mornings. I would throw on a robe over my pajamas and run down stairs with my brother to the living room and sit myself in the middle of the couch, which was directly in front of our television. To me the best part of the week was watching the morning cartoons with the family while eating breakfast. We always enjoyed good laughs watching the Coyote try to catch the Road...

    One of Oliver Stones masterpieces, Natural Born Killers, caused severe controversy due to the graphic, but sincere portrayal of how the media devilishly feeds on violence and how the people of the country respond to these glamorized acts of wrong doing. Although the nation has condemned the movie for its shockingly violent scenes, critics like Roger Ebert and devoted Stone fans like Jason O'Brien have a different perspective on the message that this movie is trying to portray. That is, the simpl...

    I'm not quite sure what I am supposed to do with these explorations, except for that they should be written on out of class material. I guess then that I will try to explore some more modern radical dramas. When I first thought of that question, nothing came to my mind. I began to think that radical drama was as thing of the past. Then I realized that there's plenty of it out and much of it I have even seen. One of the clearest and most recent examples of radical drama, which I felt dumb for not...

    "Born on the Fourth of July " This book was incredible! In all truth this was the first book I have ever read cover to cover. The book, by Ron Kovic, as compared to the film, by Oliver Stone, had some impressive similarities. Both the book and the film did a great job of portraying Ron's childhood in Massapequa, Long Island. From the little league games to playing war in the woods, leading charges and setting ambushes. This was especially well done in the movie, and exactly as I pictured them wh...

Kennedy. The screenwriters blatantly admit this fact in mentioning that, "even the shooters don't know who killed JFK." This film is not concerned with the facts of the assassination, but with feelings. The film, JFK, accurately reflects the society's national s...
