The monster I chose for my topic is about a monster of a ape. His name is King Kong. He has been on film dating back from 1933. They had remade the film in 1976 and 2005 as well. This monster has toys, movies, books, comics, video games, theme parks and etc. The list goes on.
King Kong is not only one of the first classical attempts to produce pre-science fiction films, but also arguably it has become a classic in the development of film history. From its opening, showing us the emerging industrialized city of New York; to its greedy protagonist driven to produce his best film; its exploration and finding of a different parallel world; to its adventurer portrait of American society and obsession for discovering new mysterious lands —and its encounter with a giant deity in the form of a gorilla. King Kong exhibits all the major traits we have come to attribute to the genre, cycle, or series known as science fiction. King Kong has been re-made in different historical periods, but this essay will exclusively pay attention
In Frankenstein, the monster interacts with the family in a manner that suggests how he understands aspects such as isolation, loneliness, compassion, and family.

When we were kids we were told of many imaginary monsters, but as you grow up we learn what the real monsters are. A monster is defined as a badly behaved or cruel person, something that is absurdly large, or a fictional and frightening creature. The monsters that we know of today are nothing like the ones when we were little kids. When you realize things like the monster under your bed isn’t real is when you come to know that society is the real monster. Jennifer Lynn Barnes gives us insight on who the monsters really are when she tells us that, "They told him he was killing monsters, and then they made him kill people. He thought it was just me who was different, and he didn't go through with killing me. He
(2) Aileen never felt guilty toward her victims. In the movie, she mentioned that “people kill each and other everyday” for religion and politics, and “there are heroes”. She could not stop killing because she felt that she had to kill people who could rape her to avoid them to rape somebody else. If she had not been caught, she would kill more people. At the end of the movie, after she was convicted, she still considered that the judge sentenced “a right woman to death”.
“Look then, if you dare, at South Central through the eyes of one of its most notorious Ghetto Stars and the architect of its most ghastly gang army- the Crips” (Scott 1993:xv). Sanyika Shakura, birth name Kody Scott, explains to his readers the violence, attitudes, and brutality he experienced first hand in the 1980s when he joined a gang called The Crips at age eleven. According to Kontos and Brotherton (2008), writers of The Encyclopedia of Gangs, define the name Crip as “the combination of the word crib and the acronym R.I.P. that denotes the intergenerational nature of the gang and membership from birth to death (Sloan, 2005)” (p. 43-44). Shakura, referred to as Scott throughout this piece, walks us
In the novel The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, Martians and their tripods are the presentation of “monster”.

A monster is responsible for the death of many people. Who is more sinful? the monster himself, or the creator of the monster? Although the monster is the sinful murderer, the creator has evaded his responsibilities of containing the monster he has created. Thus, making the creator the more sinful advocate. In the book “Frankenstein”, written by Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, a young, curious man filled with aspirations to create a living monster has accomplished the unthinkable. A monster was born in Victor Frankenstein’s apartment, a fairly small apartment located in Ingolstadt, Germany. When there is a creature that has deadly potential, there are measures taken to control the potential dangers the creature can inflict on people. Victor’s existence occurred naturally. Meanwhile, the monster 's existence blossomed from Victor. Victor holds the intellectual ability to know what is sinful, and what is not.Victor is the most sinful person because, the monster holds only the intellectual ability to control his emotions and actions that Victor has given him. Victor is also more sinful due his horrendous inability to give Frankenstein (the monster) an ethical conscience. Victor is also more sinful, because it was his responsibility to contain his monster, and prevent him from imposing violent actions on other humans.
Movies, books, and TV shows often portray monsters as hideous creatures who differ from society’s view of true beauty. However, Shelley and Steinbeck were able to present a theme which provided a new outlook on monsters; people are not always who they appear to be. Riordan illustrated this theme through his quote, highlighting the real monsters in of Mice and Men and Frankenstein.
According to the articles they both are talking about things people have created. In frankenstein someone created this monster who has actual feelings. In rebellious robot the robot this boy created has gone rogue.

It's the thrill of a lifetime and a long sea voyage that starts at six o'clock tomorrow morning” (King Kong, Carl Denham). As Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) drags King Kong to Broadway, he makes ten thousand dollars in just one night for the exhibition of “the Eighth Wonder of the World.” Thousands of New Yorkers paid twenty dollars per ticket, or the equivalent to three hundred sixty-nine dollars in today’s currency, to gaze at a prehistoric ape. This gaze found in King Kong is the “imperial gaze” developed against foreigners in early Hollywood travel films.

But King Kong, most fearsome of them all, is only placated by sacrificial offerings of young women (Selznick, Cooper and Schoedsack n. pag) and (“Universal Studios Hollywood” 13).

The monster giggles while I silently cry. It has curly short brown hair and blue eyes. Its nose is oval with giant, hairy NOSTRILS! Some parts of its skin are bright pink while others beige. It holds me with its two bulging hands, but I can barely endure it. It sits on the moist grass and holds me between its legs. It’s a shame that I had to be captured on such a sunny day.
