Symbolic Representations One of the symbolic representations in La Mission is where it takes place, in the mission district of San Francisco. It represents the traditional stance of Che the main character and compares it to the shift to a more hipster neighborhood with new people like Lena moving in who haven’t been in the neighborhood until recently. He also restores old cars into low riders which is historically Mexican American style of car. The music featured in this movie is a mix of traditional chorales, native drums and guitars mixed with newer more modern version that also show the transition that this community and culture are facing coming to terms with change and homosexuality that is culturally unacceptable.
In his directorial debut, Jordan Peele steers away from his comedic reputation to make the suspenseful thriller that is Get Out. The film is very intriguing and keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat throughout from start to finish as you follow Chris Washington, a young african american man, who travels with his white girlfriend to her family’s house when he uncovers a dark secret. For the typical fan of horror/thriller, it's a must see.
Paper Planes Analysis While watching the movie "Paper Planes" it is rather obvious the director of the movie, Robert Connelly, has some very strong views about certain issues. He has strong views about winning or losing, and it is clear that he thinks it is more about having fun than winning. Connelly has views on other issues as well, such as problems between fathers and sons. There are also some themes in the movie about moving on with past and focusing on the present and the future. He uses various techniques to prove his points to the viewers. One of these is to have two characters, one that has the same concerns as him, and is likeable, and the other who is the exact opposite, and is dislikeable. These make it clear to the viewer that he has strong views.
The Tuskegee Airmen movie was about the hardships that the first African American fighter pilots faced in the United States Army Air Corporation. This movie is based on a true story of how the African Americans pilots battled against racism and for equal rights. They became one of the greatest and fearless fighter pilot teams in the United States during World War II. Hannibal Lee is on a train ride to Tuskegee Air Base in Alabama. He meets two passengers, Walter and Leroi, who are going to join the 99th Fighter Squadron as fight cadets. One example of segregation occurs on the train because these three black airmen are forced to give up their seats for German prisoners because there was no more room to sit.

After the devastating terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the United States has increased its efforts in protecting its airports. At that time, “the security scanners already in place in most airports included baggage x-rays, metal detectors, and chemical residue detectors, which help security staff search out illegal items that a passenger might have” (DiLascio). These security scanners unfortunately failed in their job. Since then, the Transportation Security Administration has been keeping American airports safe using the latest technology. Airports have now been fitted with high-tech body scanners rather than the archaic metal detectors that only detect metal objects. During the past few years, individuals have attacked the

What is a dream? A dream is a series of thoughts and images that run through our minds, and lead us to be inspired. Many of us are taught to dream, because dreams can bring us happiness and goals in life that each of us have the opportunity to achieve.

. Corrections is about dehumanizing, alienating, and isolating human beings. Escaping from Alcatraz is a good movie, and I enjoyed watching Clint Eastwood planning to escape. Nevertheless, I was angry because the warden was evil, and he caused lot of trauma and distress with the inmates. My perspective of corrections is different from Mr. Rush’s viewpoint. Corrections was designed to separate troubled individuals from society, and it creates an environment of alienation and isolation. For instance, the warden at Alcatraz would not allow the inmates to come in contact with the outside world, and they only had a visitor every now and then. The inmates were detained on an island in the ocean, and some of them did not deserve to be in a place
