The movie, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, is a historical fiction. It occurs some time in China under a dynasty. Some of the events that happened in this movie relate to some of the material that we covered in class. One event that happened was when Jen and her family travels through the desert and were attacked by Lo and his Dark Cloud on horses. In my interpretation, I believe that Lo and his gang of bandits, displayed some similarities to The Mongols. As seen in the movie, they rode and fought on horses, were nomadic, and lived by raidings, which are things that Mongols are known for. They use horses for mobility and height against their enemies. When Lo and Jen are in Lo’s cave, he assumes that she is part of a Han dynasty, but she corrects
Emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) in the Antarctic are fascinating flightless birds that are able to withstand incredibly harsh environments, where wind chills can reach to -76°F. Even though these penguins are able to survive the freezing temperatures, their breeding success and mortality rates are based primarily on the sea ice concentration (SIC) and sea ice extent (SIE) throughout the seasons. Sea ice concentration is a variable for climate scientists and nautical navigators to find the area of sea ice compared to the total at a given point in the ocean, whereas sea ice extent refers to a region as “ice-covered” or “not ice-covered.” During the late 1970s, there was an elongated atypical warm period with reduced
The Maltese Falcon, was not only a detective film, but a film that displayed many different aspects of the female and the male character in the movie. The film was more than a story, but a story that explored the ideas of the detective genre and the different characteristics of femininity and masculinity. It also brought forth subjects of sexual desires and the greediness of money. The characters and the visual motifs in the film contributed to the developing of the plot and assisted in creating a more detective and gender oriented film. In the film, The Maltese Falcon, the role of men and women are portrayed in different ways in the film to show the distinct functions of masculinity and femininity between the characters.
Influence is the capacity or power of persons to produce an effect on the actions of others. Victor Flemming, the director of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, depicts a message that revolves around the reversal of power and gender roles. Moreover, Dorothy is a child in her physical presence but lives the role of a hero as she leads the scarecrow, lion, and tin man to the Wizard himself. Through the archetypes such as the hero being a women, Cultural values, and the stages of the journey, Flemming raises the argument that in this case those who don 't have much influence in society are very influential in the Emerald City.
“A devastating oil spill, 40,000 penguins and the humans that saved their lives” (Tarshish 15). The oil spilt from ships is toxic to the penguins. If people are not fast enough penguins could lose their lives. “The Amazing Penguin Rescue” and “Saving Penguins, One Sweater At A Time” have many similarities and differences such as conflict and the solution to helping the penguins.
The Wizard of Oz (1939) uses both mise en scène and sound to create an immense sequence of dream imagery, particularly in the second to last scene where Dorothy is at the point of going back to Kansas. This scene is distinctly significant in terms of mise en scène and sound as it concludes the film and highlights the themes that have been revealed throughout, giving a clearer message to the film’s audience.

Readers who have never picked up on the Dashiell Hammett detective novel The Maltese Falcon 1930 or seen the classic 1941 film adaptation, which follows the novel almost verbatim, can feel a strong sense of familiarity, faced for the first time in history. In this book, Hammett invented the hard-boiled private eye genre, introducing many of the elements that readers have come to expect from detective stories: mysterious, attractive woman whose love can be a trap , search for exotic icon that people are willing to kill the detective, who plays both sides of the law, to find the truth , but it is ultimately driven by a strong moral code , and shootings and beatings enough for readers to share the feeling of danger Detective . For decades , countless writers have copied the themes and motifs Hammett may rarely come anywhere near him almost perfect blend of cynicism and excitement.
Second, the setting of the image takes place somewhere cold, which is the main area affected by global warming. The penguins are standing on a block of ice symbolizing the Arctic and the block of ice is melting. “The Science Daily reports that ice melting rates were 25 times higher than expected in localized areas of Antarctica’s largest
Mr Popper's Penguins was published in 1938 by not one but two authors Richard and Florence Atwater. Richard started the book but fell ill and could not finish the book and the book was soon finished by his wife Florence so the ending is a bit weird. Decades later in 2011 Mark waters created a movie but went a little off track but created a awesome film non the less they recreated the book with the original drawings and adding a little still scenes from the movie resulting in a old fashion/modern book.
I feel that this documentary is subjective because it showed only on the penguins. This documentary was settled on Antarctica. The title of this movie was called “ march of the penguins” . also the narrator talks mostly about how the life of baby penguins and parent penguins.
This book tells about the penguin's March from the sea to the breeding ground and back to the sea. When summer ends the penguins will take a one week journey into the adélie coast. Once they arrive they find a mate. Each male penguin takes a turn to sing. If a female is interested they mate. Once a penguin finds its mate they wait for the egg to come out. Once it does the female transfers the egg to the male penguin. The female takes a two month journey to the coast for food for her and the chick. When she arrives back she feeds food to her chick. That is when the chick is born. But now the males are tired so they must take a journey for food. When they come back they feed the chick. As the male and females make the frequent trips to the chicks
