Listening Report: Nat King Cole I kind of liked this CD. It had some smooth tunes to groove to. It was kind of good hearing vocals after doing so many listening reports on CD’s with just instrumentalism. This guy has got a beautiful voice, and its no wonder he had millions of fans. I especially liked some of the lyrics that this guy had in his tunes. He really was a loverboy. Songs: 1.Unforgettable 2.(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66 3.Orange Colored Sky 4.Mona Lisa 5.Walkin My Baby Back Home 6.Strai

The Lost World Jurassic Park - The Lost World Comparison – Contrast The Lost World as a novel is very different from its film version. The most contrasts are found in the beginning of the story. For instance, the novel starts off with Ian Malcolm giving a detailed lecture on extinction theories at the Santa Fe Research Center. Where as, the film starts with a wealthy British family vacationing on Isla Sorna, an island of Costa Rica. On this island the tiny dinosaurs called compys attack a young
Lucas: King of Film Davis 1 Lucas: King of Film Whether it be through his epic Star Wars saga, or through the exalted special effects crew he pioneered, Industrial Light and Magic, he continues to amaze audiences world wide. His name in synonymous with famous directors/producers in the world. His impacts reach out in more fields than just film. He has created companies that produce award winning video games, toy companies produce action figures designed after characters from his movies, many boo
Ludwig Van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven was, and remains today, an Olympian figure in the history of classical music. His influence on the last 150 years of music is unequalled; while generaly a member of the Classicist fold, he was in fact the first Romantic, and pre-figured virtually all music that followed the Romantic era as well. Perhaps no other composer in history wrote music of such exhilarating power and expressiveness; certainly no other composer did so against greater odds. Beethove
Macbeth Essay Macbeth Essay I am going to prove that in the play Macbeth, a symbol of blood is portrayed often(and with different meanings), and that it is a symbol that is developed until it is the dominating theme of the play towards the end of it. To begin with, I found the word "blood", or different forms of it forty-two times (ironically, the word fear is used forty-two times), with several other passages dealing with the symbol. Perhaps the best way to show how the symbol of blood changes
Merlin We all at one point or another dream. Imagine you are in another place or a another time, the future maybe, even maybe the past where years, days, centuries, minutes all irrelevant if you have imagination. I now dream of a time and place were men have such things as bravery and honor. I now speak of Camolot. The legendary castle wear Merlin the priest, Merlin the magie, and Merlin the wise is supposed to have lived. I am not the only person to dream this dream, many play writers and actor
Mindwalk International Relations Mindwalk From the very beginning, I realized that Mindwalk was definitely not a film you could kick back, turn your brain off, and just enjoy. To be able to understand and grasp the meaning of the film, you first had to make sure that your brain was in full gear. The concept and idea the author is trying to get across just doesn’t run to you. It requires concentration and an evaluation of the world around you. Even with this in mind, I’m not even sure I came acro
Movie review of A time to Kill I never read A Time To Kill by John Grisham because the book bored me. But I wonder why it did bore me because the movie was engrossing and entertaining. Maybe it is because Akiva Goldsman took out most of the boring parts. I usually love Grisham, but this book was just too slow. However, another thing that made the movie more entertaining is the actors. The movie begins with the rape scene that you have probably heard about. If you haven\'t, it\'s a quick-edited s
Movie Review of Jerry Maguire Movie Review of Jerry Maguire If you want to take a break from the frigid air of a Montreal winter, go to see Jerry Maguire; it will be sure to warm your heart. If you\'re like me, you\'re a little tired of going to see big name stars in overly hyped, big time busts. Combine that with the fact that sports movies are rarely impressive, (Necessary Roughness?!? The Program?!?) and I have to say that my hopes were not too high for this movie. Let me tell you, I was plea

Feeling unsure of one\'s place in society is an experience that every young adult faces but deals with differently. Some rebel while others comply with whatever has been set out for them by society or their parents, or both. The role of the woman in society is forever changing.

Movies Heros I have seen many films, episodes, and all time favorites throughout my life. Attitudes, styles, and feelings are carried out in each film. You learn to enjoy watching these characters assume their role and act in such a notorious way. Every character has his or her way of acting. For example, to be considered a hero in a film, you must be the underdog and be victorious. You can be in romance if you are confident, good-looking, and soft spoken. , you must be the underdog and be victo

What if the only medication legally available would leave you unconscious or do nothing at all? If you were the one suffering, would you resort to the only treatment that allowed you to live normally even though it was illegal? Thousands of people across the country are forced to break the law to ease their pain. They have chosen marijuana over anything legally available be

Music Analogy “The final years of the 1970’s saw the emergence of a new style of pop music that would continue in popularity into the early 1980’s. This music was known, by its fans at that time, as New Wave” (http://www.erols.com/alloyd/adam2.htm). “New Wave” had a particular style that utilized the synthesizer as a main instrument. The synthesizer was a machine that electronically produced music. It gave a certain artificial and metallic feel to the music. The Cure and Erasure, bands formed du

Music In The United States With the start of the 20th century music began to play a huge part in the rapidly maturing United States. The music of the 20th century was not only there to entertain the people but it was more. It was used now to influence and manipulate the listeners, the artists had a goal to entertain and to enlighten the listener so that they could get their messages heard. Music is one of the best ways to advertise and to expand ideas, and many artists knew this. Music rapidly i
music of the middle ages Music has been a great influence in the lives of many people for many years and is constantly changing. Music has been divided into six periods: Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Twentieth Century. The Medieval period was the longest and most distant period of musical history and consists of almost a millennium’s worth of music. To examine the music of this period we must first look at the influences or dominating factors of medieval life. In a political sen
National TV Turn-off Week- What a Dumb Idea In a time when millions of people are starving each year and thousands are killed in war zones, worrying about how much television we watch sounds like a stupid idea. Right? Well, that’s what people all across North America are doing every day. In fact, there is a full week dedicated to the cause: National T.V-Turnoff Week. National T.V-Turnoff week is nothing more then a cry for attention by the middle class. The lower classes have their problems: sta
Natural Law Natural Law The School of Natural Law Philosophy was an intellectual group of philosophers. They developed new ways of thinking about religion and government. Natural law was based on moral principles, but the overall outlook changed with the times. John Locke was a great philosopher from the middle of the 17th century. He was a primary contributor to the new ideas concerning natural law of that time. He argued that humans in the state of nature are free and equal, yet insecure in th
No Future No Future? When looking into the future people see many different things. Whether it be flying cars, buildings floating in the air, or people walking around in space suits, everyone has their own idea. Most of the time when people look into the future they look far into it, not in the next several years. The future is usually defined as twenty or more years beyond the present. Many movies and stories written about the future world seem to have the common theme that technology will play
No Sex Our group chose “Speak To The Hand” by Lakita Garth. This song talks about the health risks of casual sex, and sexual encounters. We chose it because of it’s positive message and the good results that would take place in the event this concept would be heeded. We also chose it because of it’s rapid, up beat tempo that stimulates movement, which is an excellent way to keep fit. First of all, the message that is being exhibited is that abstinence should be exercised, no sex is the safest se
Nosferatu Horror films of today employ several film techniques to invoke responses from the viewer. However, early silent films relied more on these techniques because without a script, the viewer needs another way to interpret the film. The 1922 silent film Nosferatu directed by F.W. Murnau is one of the first of it’s kind to apply what most would consider to be more modern film techniques. Montage plays a key role in this film, as does unusual camera angles, over acting, early special effects,
Of Mice and Men- A Comprehensive Comparision of the novel and Who doesn\'t know of John Steinbeck\'s classic novel "Of Mice and Men"? It is a novel that almost everyone educated in the United States has either read it or pretended to read it. But how many have seen the 1992 film "Of Mice and Men"? The relative obscurity of 1992 screen version of this timeless drama does not mean that it was poorly done. Just the contrary is true, it is one of the best film adaptations of a novel that I have seen
On The Waterfront Terry Malloy as a “Hero???” When Terry Malloy was first introduced, he did not make any indications that he would strive for the respect that he gained throughout the story. His tough-guy behavior and compassionate attitude has made him what he is: a hero. He never revealed what he was truly made of or what he was capable of. He always had low self-esteem about himself—repeatedly calling himself a “bum.” Despite his stubbornness to change and his ignorance to others, Malloy pro
One Flew Over the Cuckoo\'s Nest Thomas Evans One Flew Over the Cuckoo\'s Nest 12-6-96 General Psychology Dr. Sabin In the movie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo\'s nest, there was a character named McMurphy, played by Jack Nickolson, who was admitted into a mental institution for medical testing after having been convicted of statutory rape. It was obvious that he was only faking and he thought that he could get off from having to serve his sentence in a work camp. He pretty much saw everything and ev
opiate of the masses There was once a great philosopher who stated that religion is the opiate of the masses. i believe that this holds true even today. Except what keeps people in a daze is television. Television is rarely used for any good today, for example, do you really think that full house is an intellectual stimulus? hell no. TV is designed to be brain candy for the weak-minded and ignorant. The internet is more useful and I might add, stimulating. This is a medium in which you can inter
Opinion on Movie Villians Movie Villains What really is a villain? Villains have been alive forever, there is no way to easily detected them or stopping them. They come in all shapes and sizes from animals to little children to even space aliens. Each villain has his or her own particular style, usually greed. Another big reason for there evil acts is because of revenge, revenge can turn innocent people in to cold blooded killers. The term used to represent villains is antagonist, or someone who
orange A Clockwork Orange: Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish A Clockwork Orange received critical acclaim, made more than thirty million dollars at the box office, and was nominated for various awards; however, this esteemed film was outlawed from the nation of Great Britain in order to curb its immoral content from permeating society. Before all the controversy began, A Clockwork Orange was a novel, written mostly in Russian, by Anthony Burgess. Stanley Kubrick is known to critics as a film maker wh

Nightclubs\' Role In Our Drug Problem Cultural beliefs, expectations, and ideals - how they contribute to drug use. Why they cause certain anti-drug efforts to fail The extermination of illegal drugs has always been one of our most important, worldwide issues. Ending the existence of drugs is one of the toughest and most complicated goals we face. Despite our constant battle against them, illegal substances continue to exist and thrive in our culture.

Percussion Drums are among the oldest musical instruments. The best known of percussion instruments, they are found throughout the world and in a great variety of shapes and sizes. A drum normally consists of a skin or other membrane, called a head, which is stretched over an enclosed space or over one or both ends of a hollow vessel. Exceptions include the African slit drum, made from a hollowed-out tree trunk, and the Caribbean steel drum, made from a metal barrel. Drums are usually played by
Philadelphia The movie, Philadelphia, was an excellent example of the severe discrimination many people with Aids are exposed to. In this instance the main character, Andy ,was also gay. Unfortunately, in our society, he was faced with a double whammy. The gay iss is controversial enough, but to compound that in the work force with having Aids would be almost unbearable for any person to cope with. Tom Hanks played Andy with a serious need to communicate to the viewers how everyday life, work, e
Planet of the Apes "Planet of the Apes" James Burroughs is a critic. In his article, "The Fiction of Science Fiction," he expresses his opinion that the movie, "Planet of the Apes," has no value or real meaning for society today. He says it is like other similar science fiction movies made in the 1960s because it is so out-of-date. He seems to feel the only people that would enjoy "Planet of the Apes" are people who have nothing better to do. I disagree with Mr. Burroughs. In the movie, "Planet

Powder Most likely written by some kind of nut, the film Powder is indeed strange. Powder is the story of an albilno completely hairless teenager who has the power to use an extraordinary amount of his brain capacity. Powder is the archetypal outsider.Edward Lightning Hands might be a more fitting name for all the overuse of the already worn out “Boo Radley-like misfit who is also a despised prophet” type theme. Aside from its lack of orignality it is also typically “hollywood” in it’s blatant o
Pretty Woman Vs. Pillow Talk The marriage plot has been quite prominent in the film industry over the past few decades. The plot that is characterized by its lead woman “getting” the lead man and vice versa, has contributed to such movie blockbusters as Pretty Woman and the classic film, Pillow Talk. While both films can be classifies as containing marriage plots, the films share other similarities as well. However, in regards to the marriage plot, Pretty Woman follows the pattern much more flue
Problems With Music In Research There are many reasons why using music in research is problematic. From inconsistencies in peoples connotations of the spoken language, to simple familiarity from portion of the population and not from others, there are many things that can make music in research very difficult. One reason for difficulty is that the measurement of peoples perception of music goes far beyond what can be described verbally. Feeling evoked by the music although described by the same
Psycho Alfred Hitchcock is renown as a master cinematographer (and editor), notwithstanding his overall brilliance in the craft of film. His choice of black and white film for 1960 was regarded within the film industry as unconventional since color was perhaps at least five years the new standard. But this worked tremendously well. After all, despite the typical filmgoer’s dislike for black and white film, Psycho is popularly heralded among film buffs as his finest cinematic achievement; so much
Only Those With No Hope Take Drugs Beatle John Lennon once said "Only those with no hope take drugs." But I believe the statement is partly true, because not only those with no hope take drugs but more and more young generations begin using drugs. Moreover, others may use drugs out of curiosity, for a thrill, or to rebel. Regardless of why drug use begins, many people continue the practice because they become dependent on the drug. In recent years, the age of users of drugs has descended dramati
Psycho By Alfred Hitcock PSYCHO A running theme that is presented to the audience in Psycho is the opposition that exists between good and evil. This is shown throughout the movie among the different characters. Examples can also be taken from conflicts within the characters. Certain conflicts and how the characters deal with them and each other are what shape the structure of the movie. The perception that the audience receives of the characters change throughout the movie by the different conf
Rashomon And Blowup: A Study Of Truth Rashomon and Blowup: A Study of Truth In a story, things are often not quite what they seem to be. Akira Kurosawa\'s Rashomon and Michaelangelo Antonioni\'s Blow-Up are good examples of stories that are not what they first appear to be. Through the medium of film, these stories unfold in different and exiting ways that give us interesting arguments on the nature of truth and reality. Akira Kurosawa\'s Rashomon tells the story of a murder. It flashes back to
RENT - Musical There\'s a scene in the new musical RENT that may be the quintessential romantic moment of the \'90s. Roger, a struggling rock musician, and Mimi, a junkie who\'s a dancer at an S/M club, are having a lovers\' quarrel when their beepers go off and each takes out a bottle of pills. It\'s the signal for an AZT break, and suddenly they realize that they\'re both HIV-positive. Clinch. Love duet. If you don\'t think this is romantic, consider that Jonathan Larson\'s sensational musical
Reservoir Dogs I don\'t give a fuck what you know or don\'t know, but I\'m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It\'s so amusing for me to torture a cop. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you aint gonna get. Mr. Blonde in Reservoir Dogs, 1992 This guy was the most twisted and sickly perverted guy in the whole movie. He had no reservations about killing people. He was brutal. He loved torture and death. By his own admission he liked to see the peoples\' expr
Review of Sublime video The music video that I chose to write my paper on, is called Date Rape and it is performed by Sublime. I\'ve seen the video plenty of times and I taped it back in 1993 when I first got their album 40 oz. to Freedom. The song is about a man that picks up a lady in a bar and rapes her. He winds up going to court and the judge finds that, he was full of shit, and he gave him twenty-five years. Then it talks about the man going to jail and even getting butt raped by a large i
Rock And Roll In this essay, I’m going to introduce to the reader a topic not touched a lot because of its complexity and its avoidance by conservative adults. This topic is, of course, Rock Music. During one week, I looked for information in the library and at my house, and from the information I gathered and my one knowledge about the topic, I’m going to lead the reader to a better understanding of Rock n’ Roll. I chose to do Rock music because I can identify myself with it. Rock music is very
