  • Leading White Commander
    1,219 words
    Glory, a word used to dignify or praise. If you look glory up in the dictionary you will find it described as great honor, praise, or distinction. It goes on to praise worthy asset, it is adoration. I myself think that the dictionary's definition that says " a height of achievement, enjoyment or prosperity" would best suit the title of the movie. I believe that the word glory was chosen for this film because what these men went out to fight for was glory. They were fighting old battles which the...

  • Real Life Deliverance Of The Demon
    1,121 words
    Deliverance: Fact or Fiction Many things in this world are unexplainable. One concept that is hard for many people to grasp is the concept of a deliverance. Since ridding one's souls from demons is talked about in the biblical times, one's believing in exorcisms is hard to comprehend in modern days. People shun the thought of this idea mainly because they don't want to believe it. There are many stories and movies present in the world today about the supernatural powers that may be true. There a...

  • Job Of A Movie Director
    917 words
    Reliability of the Media Growing up in America today means being exposed to numerous half truths. These are readily found on the television, newspapers, radio, and movies. The truth is hardly ever told in its complete form. Take for instance the local news broadcast, we watch it and take it for truth. We tend to give credibility to these newscasters based on the fact that they are representing major broadcast stations. These stations are supposed to be reliable and credible sources of informatio...

  • Different From Animal Farm The Movie
    437 words
    Like all books, Animal Farm the book, is different from Animal Farm the movie. One of the reasons is the characters. Some of the characters that were in the book were not in the movie. Those were characters like Mr. Whymper, Clover, and Mollie. In the movie, Jessie, the dog that was only mentioned in the first chapter, replaced Clover. Jessie narrated the story, was the main character, and was in the story the entire time. Some of the events that were in the book were not shown or did not happen...
  • William Wallace
    303 words
    we can cover the movies, their historical accuracy, and even the patriotic and psychological influence is has on us during the current conflict. For each movie I think we should first describe the historical event, explain how accurate the movie portrayed the event, and finally what residual message the movie leaves behind. William Wallace is a hero to the Scots, to be sure, but much of him seems to be borne in legends, now. There is not a great deal to be known about him. He was born at Ellersl...
  • Bowling For Columbine
    491 words
    Bowling for Columbine In 2002 Michael Moore's film "Bowling for Columbine" won the Oscar for best documentary. Unfortunately, in my opinion I do not believe that this movie is a documentary or truth. Bowling for Columbine is FICTION! The movie makes its points by easily deceiving and misleading the viewer. Moore uses deception as its primary tool of persuasion and effect. A major theme in Bowling for Columbine is that the NRA is cold hearted towards the killings. In the movie Charlton Heston (Pr...

However on December 7th 1941 was the day innocence died and began an era of patriotism, which has yet to be equaled. President Roosevelt stated, "December 7th 1941-a date that will live in infamy" (Pearl Harbor ...
