Throughout the first half of Communication 101: Introduction to Human Communication we have been introduced to and discussed a lot of new concepts, ideas, and terms. All of this new material has been pertinent to how humans interact with one another, while also informing us of the why and how behind these interactions as well. The amount of new information we have learned would be impossible to cover and apply to one piece of pop culture, but a lot of what we have learned is relatable to the movie 50 First Dates. This 2004 movie featuring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore features numerous examples of normative relationships and key concepts that we have learned about in class. In this paper I will not only introduce communication terms
Tom is envisioned as Puck in his role, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Tom is a unique individual, compared to Puck, he has similar magical powers.

The utmost evident example of his power is his task in the recovery of Coral, as he was the only one to foresee Coral as Kim Novak. “I knew who she was the second I saw her” (Act 4, Scene 2). Tom’s warmful attitude and friendly manner towards Coral has led to her confiding in him. He has
In chapter one of the novel The Great Gatsby, the central couple presented are Tom and Daisy Buchanan. These two partners, although different, have similar personalities but also have contrasting differences. Throughout chapter 1, these two portray that wealth is better than everything else, and they both revolve and base their lives on it.

During chapter 1 it was apparent that Tom and Daisy had an unstable relationship.
An Eros lover has a warm relationship with their family, falls in love at first sight, and idealizes love. In Juliet’s case, she has a warm relationship with her nurse, father, and brother. In the beginning Juliet was not anxious to fall in love, but when she met Romeo, everything changed. On her balcony, after her encounter with Romeo, she confesses her love for him. Even though she just met him she claims it is love at first sight, a characteristic in Eros lovers. In addition, she is desperate to have sexual intercourse with Romeo and compares herself to, “an impatient child that [had] new robes/ And [could] not wear them” (III.ii.88). In other words, she had married but was still a virgin. At this time she is idealizing the idea of love. Also, she considers love the most important activity, which is shown when she spends the entire day in bed waiting for Romeo.
Power and control plays a big role in the lives many. When power is used as a form of control, it leads to depression and misery in the relationship. This is proven through the themes and symbolism used in the stories Lesson before Dying, The fun they had, The strangers that came to town, and Dolls house through the median of three major unsuccessful relationship: racial tension between the African Americans and the caucasians in the novel Lesson before Dying, Doll’s House demonstrates a controlling relationship can be detrimental for both individuals and The Stranger That Came To Town along with The Fun They Had show that when an individual is suppressed by majority they become despondent.

Tom and Daisy are careless creatures who love fickle things. Friends come and go, money comes and goes, popularity comes and goes, sexual relationships come and go. True love, however, does not come and go, it is everlasting and it is something Tom and Daisy are not interested in.
Interpersonal communication is primarily dyadic, meaning it involves two people. There are examples of this everywhere, from two coworkers who are becoming close friends to two people entering a romantic relationship. Interpersonal communication is all around us, especially romantic relationships. As a result, many of the movies we watch have examples of interpersonal relationships which reflects the ones in our own lives. This paper will highlight the relationship between Wade and Vanessa from the movie “Deadpool,” relate it to the concepts we have learned in class, and illustrate how we can learn from it.
Using the movie Love Jones I will talk about the characteristics of male/male and female/female relationship as they are portrayed in the film. Then I will talk about how different the female/male relationship is and focus primarily on their communication styles. There is some harsh vocabulary included in my essay but only in quotations that I have taken from the movie itself to communicate what was going on in the scenes I have chose to talk about.
Because Gatsby and Daisy first meet and commence their relationship in the summer, it is evident that the summer season plays a key role in the development, specifically the conception, of their romance, which validates the abstract idea that summer represents romance and the fulfillment of relationships. However, summer does not always constitute romantic and elate motifs; it can also cause tensions to rise amongst romantically-involved characters. A prime example of these summer-provoked tensions is the “lover” storyline in the Shakespearean classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As its title implies, it is clear that the play’s events take place during the summer season.
This article discusses how in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the title character’s each achieve freedom and self-realization through their love for one another. I will use this article to make claims that R and Julie in Warm Bodies achieve the same things through their actions and their love, as their Shakespearean counterparts do. I will use the arguments made in this article to support my own claims about how Warm Bodies uses the zombie apocalypse to construct a reality in which love literally can change the world.
500 days of summer is a story where a boy meets a girl, he falls in love with her yet she does not truly love him. The movie shows the progression of the relationship of Tom and Summer. It begins when they first meet when Summer begins working as a secretary where Tom works and progresses to them casually dating. Summer is obviously hesitant and against relationships yet Tom is overly eager to find the perfect girl. The story ultimately shows the demise and after effects of their relationship. At first thought anyone could think this is the typical love story where the movie casually progresses to them living happily ever after. This is not that kind of fairy tale love story.
