The Hero’s Journey in Film: The Boondock Saints The idea of a clear and precise pattern that nearly all heroes follow is not something new. In fact, one of the most famous examples of a hero cycle is the one created by Joseph Campbell. In his world-renowned book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell sets up and explains how every hero follows the same basic path until he/she winds up back at the beginning and another cycle begins. “The mythical hero…is lured…to the threshold of adventure…journeys through a world of unfamiliar yet strangely intimate forces…undergoes a supreme ordeal…” and then returns back to his home either a hero and changed person or a coward and disgrace (Campbell 211). After the challenges are dealt with in some
A Hero’s Journey: Hamlet and Simba What images come to mind as you reflect on your childhood? Playgrounds, blackboards, and soccer balls may be among the warmest of memories. Yet for many mermaids swim their thoughts, princesses get swept of their feet, and lions roar to their loyal place in the animal kingdom. There is no doubt that today’s entertainment has most of its touch using classical influences. Walt Disney has produced animated films that have captured the heart and imagination of audiences of all ages around the world through the magic of storytelling and imagery. Many of us appreciate the imagination and magic that Disney puts into its animations with out knowing they are based off of classical and traditional storylines
Once in awhile, a dashing and debonair actor who performs with such precision and heart comes along, and pure magic happens on the screen each time he appears. And in the case of Marcus Rosner, all of that happens and more. The only downside has been is that from some of his earliest appearances with Hallmark in When Calls the Heart to his more recent works in Summer of Dreams, he NEVER get the girl and always departs the film with all his money intact, but none of the integrity and dignity that he possesses in his everyday life. I had the pleasure of interviewing Marcus again within this past week, and he gave a few hints regarding his upcoming works. In fact, just maybe the tables are about to turn for his upcoming characters. Hearties can only hope.
Mickey Shea - Mickey was essential to move the plot along because Mickey helped Eddie’s family out. Without Mickey, Eddie’s family probably would have been different since Mickey got Eddie’s dad a job so they can earn more money. In the book it says, “He had chased … mouth to feed.” (Albom 137) This means that when Eddie’s father and Mickey got into a fight, Eddie’s father couldn’t kill Mickey because Mickey had helped out with the family. Mickey gave Eddie’s family a better life, but when he and Eddie’s father got into a fight, Eddie’s father couldn’t afford to kill Mickey after everything he’s done for the family.
Joseph Campbell, an American mythological researcher, wrote a famous book entitled The Hero with a Thousand Faces In his lifelong research Campbell discovered many common patterns running through hero myths and stories from around the world. Years of research lead Campbell to discover several basic stages that almost every hero-quest goes through Many followers of Campbell have defined the stages of his mono-myth in various ways, sometimes supplying different names for certain stages.

Call to Adventure:
My life has always been a series of transitional phases that was as every-changing as the seasons themselves. The words of my literary heroes were my utmost comfort; they inspired my confidence and my character, and moved me to be a more visceral, understanding person. I believe that during my time I have been wizened, and connected to the roots of all humanity; in my imagination I see it as the growth of a sampling into the dampness of the earth and the jaded formation of rough bark. Ralph Waldo Emerson, whose transcendental views have inspired me, was once quoted as saying, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” I believe that is true, and with every choice I’m reminded of that hopeful and assertive message.
Throughout all of history there has been stories and tales about heroic characters saving their societies, or even the world. Over these eras, the way these heroes have been illustrated has changed and been refined by numerous people. These stories are called Hero’s Journey’s. There are three main types of heroes; Epic Hero, Greek Hero, and Shakespearean Heroes. Over time their stories have been twisted and turned in many ways. All of these heroes have many differences and similarities. The Epic Hero being a great warrior while the Greek Hero is civilized and the Shakespearean Hero is more centered on the wellbeing of their people.

Micky’s passion towards the game of blackjack is crazy. It shows when he is kicked off of the team and then still continued to have a blackjack team of his own. He found new players and taught a new set of inexperienced players. He didn’t want to give up the game. His respect for this team also was revealed when the team told him the news. He took the news fairly well and listened carefully to what Fisher and Martinez had to say. He didn’t yell or get mad at them for the decision they had made, he just respected their decision and went along with his
Ian is very naive when it comes to Mickey's situations. Mickey was mentally and emotionally fucked up after being raped and abused and for some reason Ian couldn't comprehend that. He couldn't out aside his own feelings and attempt to understand what Mickey might be going through. He had no sympathy or compassion for him just anger about him marrying a prostitute and even he acknowledged that Terry could be forcing Mickey to do so. He's been a witness to Terry's crazy over the top ass so why he thinks the situation isn't dangerous is beyond

I looked at him while he was talking, remembering those days in Los Angeles when he was paying us $10 a show and putting at least $5,000 in his pocket every week. I was remembering, too, all the stories about his petty thefts, cons, and hustles. I couldn't stand being in the same room with the man.
