  • Later In The Movie Shrek
    511 words
    Film Response It's always hard to pick a single favorite movie, because there are so many good ones. If I had to pick a favorite it would be a toss up between Gladiator, and Old School. I have a hard time choosing between comedy, and action. I would have to say that Gigli staring Ben Affleck, and J-lo is the least favorite movie of mine. In my opinion Gigli had a bad plot, bad acting, and was to long. I recently have seen the Client which was writer by John Grissom. The Client was originally a b...

  • Movie Norma Rae
    699 words
    Norma Rae. It is easy to see why the film, Norma Rae, received great praise at the time of its making. Sally Field gives a heart wrenching performance, providing a realistic portrayal of the shockingly oppressive working climate of the blue-collar worker. This is an older movie, thus sustaining the elements of the 'Hollywoodism' that are prominent now to a minimum. Nevertheless, the director successfully portrayed reality through exhibition of a certain culture, language, gender rolling and othe...

This move really depicted what it was like to live on the Rez. It showed that many of the Indians were total drunks and that they didn't even care about their kids while they were drunk. It also showed that many of the Indians do not have a lot of money and while they are living on the Rez money is not that big of an issue. My...
