Romeo and Juliet act three scene one happens on a street in Verona during a scorching hot day. When Benvolio and Mercutio spot the Capulets, Mercutio is provocative and wants to start a quarrel with Tybalt because Tybalt insulted Romeo. Tybalt and Mercutio draw their swords and start the brawl. To try and stop the brawl, Romeo steps between them, but it’s too late, Tybalt impales Mercutio under Romeo's arm and Mercutio dies. To get vengeance over Mercutio's death, Romeo attacks Tybalt and kills him. The rendition of Romeo and Juliet I’m going to discuss first is The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and second is the 1968 film by Franco Zeffirelli.
Rage Against the Machine’s single "Testify", the first song from their 1999 album 'The Battle of Los Angeles", is a commentary on the American public’s blindness or numbness to global issues such as war, politics, capitalism, wealth, and power through the filtering of information by the mass news media. As it relates to Sociology, “Testify” deals mainly with Marxist Conflict Theory, and also incorporates many of the topics we have learned about in class throughout the semester.
Fight Club: every white man’s favorite movie and my worst nightmare turned reality. Much of the novel version of Fight Club struggles with this issues of toxic masculinity, feminization, and emotional constipation.

For example, Smash Mouth writes,”i ain’t the sharpest tool in shed/ She was looking kind was looking kind of dumb with her finger in her thumb.”(Smash Mouth) This lyric describes the singer’s personality. He might not be the smartest person and people might judge him, but The singer is smart enough to make his own decisions. This is a great example of a hypole. Another examples of literary devices in the song is,”Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running.”(Smash Mouth) This lyric is an example of personification. It’s personification because it’s giving human traits to the rules. The lyric give detailed information about the singer listening to the rules, but people make fun of him for listening to every rule. That will not stop him for doing his best.
First, Romeo’s kind and calm personalities act as an advantage for many of the possible problems he could have had, such as Capulet hatred towards him and his increase in violence. After Romeo was depressed because he liked Rosaline and she didn’t like him back, his cousin Benvolio helped Romeo sneak into a Capulet party so he could get over Rosaline and pick another woman that he might want. As Romeo was describing how Juliet looked to his cousin, Tybalt, Capulet’s nephew, figured out that Romeo was at the party by his voice. He then confronted Capulet and asked him if he could kill him, but surprisingly Capulet lets him stay at the party and calls Romeo a gentleman and a good man (Shakespeare Act 1 Scene 1 Line 64). Capulet could have captured him or even killed him, but he did not. Capulet stated that Romeo is a well-governed youth and that Romeo is a good man, which shows that Romeo isn’t a person who would cause a commotion and that he causes no threat to the Capulet family. Later on, as Mercutio, the prince's kinsman, is arguing and fighting with Tybalt about him being one of his villain Romeo’s friends, Romeo comes in and says, “Tybalt, the reason I have to love thee doth much excuse the appertaining rage to such greeting. Villain am I none.Therefore farewell. I see thou knowest me not” (Shakespeare Act 3 Scene 1 Line 58). As Tybalt wants to fight Romeo and bring in violence,
Fight Club is a psychoanalytical film that addresses the themes of identification, freedom and violence.

I chose Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine for act one, scene three. In the song it talks about being happy and that the bad days are over. Romeo in act three, scene three meets Juliet and he’s now really happy. “Leave all your love and your longing behind” Romeo left his longing and love for Rosaline behind and became happy with Juliet. “Happiness hit her like a train on a track” this describes how suddenly Romeo fell in love with Juliet.
There are many songs that allude to Romeo and Juliet. The song “I'd die for you” by Bon Jovi, has a specific line that resembles Romeo's feelings for Juliet, “I’d die for you, I'd do anything, I’d lie for you, you know it's true baby I'd die for you I'd die for you I'd die”. As said in the quote, Romeo's feelings for Juliet are strong enough that he would we willing to die for her, in which case he did. The theme of this song is fate vs. free will and has a motif of death/sleep. Also, the conflict that is similar to the play is whether or not you love someone enough to die for them.

I am planning to write about the 1999 film Fight Club, directed by David Fincher. This movie is about a nameless insomniac office worker (the narrator) who has become, as he views, a slave to consumer culture. He begins attending support groups for diseases he doesn’t have to subdue his emotional state, and he begins to sleep again. He meets Marla Singer, another fake attendee of support groups, she is an incredibly mysterious woman who is obviously a bit crazy, yet the narrator seems drawn to her. On a flight for his job, the narrator meets the character Tyler Durden, a hip, stylish man who sells soap for a living. When the narrator's apartment blows up, he calls Tyler and begins to live
As a consequence of the brawl between Tybalt and Mercutio, Mercutio ends up dead which then develops the theme because of the pain Romeo feels after hearing about his friend’s death.
Fight Club is a unique film that has many different interpretations consisting of consumerist culture, social norms, and gender roles. However, this film goes deeper and expresses a Marxist ideology throughout; challenging the ruling upper-class and a materialist society. The unnamed narrator, played by Ed Norton, represents the materialist society; whereas Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt, represents the person challenging the controlling upper-class. Karl Marx believed that the capitalist system took advantage of workers, arguing that the interests of the upper-class class conflicted with that of the common worker. Marx and Durden share the same views about the upper-class oppressing the materialist, common worker. By interpreting Fight Club through a Marist lens, the viewer is able to realize the negative effects a capitalist society has on the common worker by seeing the unnamed narrator’s unfulfilled and material driven life in contrast to the fulfilling life of Durden who challenges the upper-class. The unnamed narrator initially fuels the upper-class dominated society through his materialistic and consumeristic tendencies; however, through the formation of his alter ego—Durden—the unnamed narrator realizes the detriment he is causing to himself and society. He then follows the guide of Durden’s and Marx’s views and rectifies his lifestyle by no longer being reliant on materials. Also by forming fight club, which provides an outlet, for himself and the common worker,
