Unfortunate citizens were sent flying back as STAG and the Syndicate shredded through the roads of Steelport. Alongside the dangerous driving, bullet shells and rockets flew through the air as both sides tried to get an upper hand on the other.
A group of four N-Forcers raced though Loren Square in pursuit of two speeding Luchadore trucks. The masked wrestlers drove on dangerously close to a STAG road-block just south of a deserted Friendly Fire. Lasers from the road-blocking STAG became more powerful the closer the gamg drove, until the lead Luchadore slammed his brake and wrenched the wheel to a side. The second truck followed the lead and both drifted to the left and continued tearing up the city northwards.
All but one N-Forcer …show more content…
Shaundi looked over the seats (with difficulty, thanks to the high headrests) and through the tiny slits in the window, but all she could see was the clear, blue sky. She moved nearer the seats and tilted her head in different ways, until the double doors banged open behind her. A heavily armoured soldier looked at her sternly, whilst his buddy reached inside and grabbed at Viola 's arm.
"Hey!" Viola yelled. "Get the fuck off me!" She struggled in his grip as he pulled her outside.
The soldier held her close to him, his torso pressed up against her contesting back. "Now, now; play nice, gorgeous," he half-whispered. He raised his pistol and traced it along her tense jawline with one hand, while he squeezed the other around her wrist with strong fingers. His face twisted into a sadistic smile when she winced.
"Knock it off, Dearly," the other soldier warned. He quite tenderly helped Shaundi - who resisted with a lot of effort - out of the N-Forcer and continued, "We 're just dropping them off, so cut it out with the creepy shit."
Dearly snarled at his co-worker when he turned his back and slightly leaned into Viola 's neck. Viola expected more, but he only breathed his warm breath onto her. He pulled back when a STAG Condor began to descend in front of them. The back opened up, leaving a ramp for passengers to climb aboard. Shaundi was first pushed inside, then Viola. Both soldiers waved them off as the door closed electronically.

The “Sunny Randall” series follows main character Sunny Randall, who is a female detective. She was created by Parker so that Helen Hunt would play her in a movie, but it never happened. He kept the series going because his publisher asked him to.

One of the guards rounded on Willow and hit her with the shock baton. She fell to the ground, every nerve feeling fried. By the time she gained her composure and was able to sit up, they were gone.

“Let me go!” She yanked her arm away from him and rubbed it, “I told you and mom I didn’t want to be here, and you made me go anyway.” She started to walk away
“Just leave me” came the shaky mumbled voice came from between them “hand me over, they’ll leave you alone you can get away” he spat the rock onto the ground, Phoenix letting go of him to swoop it up.
“I need to get out of here,” she mutters. Swinging her legs over the edge, she’s about to stand up when the girl puts her arm on her shoulder.
As un-athletic as Kane was, he excelled at one school sport. Dodgeball. He dove past Gort and tumbled under the GMC. Gort spun and slammed the bat into the ground with a loud thunk a split second after Kane jerked his leg under. Watching Gort’s feet in the blue glow, he rolled back and forth, avoiding the blind jabs until the aggressor tired from the attack and stepped back. Before the slashes resumed, Kane pulled his all-purpose wrench from a pocket and slid forward under the engine. He jabbed the tool into the darkness where the oil plug belonged, hoping to find the protruding nut.

The Cinema of Attractions Early Film, Its Spectator and the Avant-Garde has many concepts that relate to the novel, The Sun Also Rises. In this project, Tom Gunning’s ideas will be helpful to expound the male’s perspective of women. There are plenty of scenes that are not requisite for the narrative of the novel, however, it has been added to seek attention from the audience. There was unnecessary hatred shown through mockery towards the Jews in this novel. This can be seen in situations where Robert Cohn when to university and got neglected, and when the narrator says, “He has a hard, Jewish, stubborn steak”. This creates racial conflictions and brings attention towards the audience. Tom Gunning elucidates how women can be a center of attraction
I enjoyed both the 1961 movie adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun starring Sidney Poiter since it was intriguing, action-packed and stayed loyal to the book even with some slight deviations from the book. In the book, the Younger’s are only seen in their apartment, but the movie adds different settings. The book only mentions Walter’s work life and social life with his friend Bobo and Willy, but the movie included scenes of Walter at work, and at the bar with his friends. I think that the additional scenes were effective since it helps better understand Walter. In Act one Scene one of the book, Walter’s hatred and reluctance to go to work towards his job seems childish, but with the movie’s additional scenes, depicts Walter’s job as meaningless. Also in the book, Walter’s decision to trust Willy seems arbitrary since in Act

Another company of Engineers were setting up a fence fifty feet from where the original had collapsed. The smell of the pile of dead had many soldiers pause in their work to vomit. The fence crew was watched over by two companies of riflemen, although no mobile dead had approached the opening. At the same time, mechanics climbed over the
A fragment of life in Hollywood is being spread over the screen of the Music Hall in Sunset Boulevard. Utilizing as the premise of their forthcoming, burning dramatization a shameful circumstance including a blurred, maturing quiet screen star and a destitute, pessimistic youthful scriptwriter, Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder (with an aid from D. M. Marshman, Jr.) have composed an effective story of the aspirations and disappointments that join to make life in the cardboard city so entrancing to the outside world.
