Hyde is perceived as a character who stands out in the Victorian society. Surprisingly, he pays off the attempt of blackmailing. Hyde makes himself what the society thinks of him. His ability to submerge into the societal expectations depicts the Jekyll in him. Although a monster, Hyde is conscious of his reputation in the Victorian society. As revelation between Hyde and the society deepens, the difference between his monstrous activities, historic moments, and the environments becomes less. Stevenson has successfully created a monster within the seven theses of monster culture of Jeffery Jerome Cohen.
Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979) is a science fiction film about the clash between technology and the human being. It is especially relevant to the theme of birth and reproduction. At the end, there is a struggle between two species for survivor. The clip presents the first meeting between the high technological human being and the alien. They are both a treat for each other, but at the same time the both need each other. The entire clip could be divided on three parts, the first one at the entrance into the alien spaceship, the second part, the discovery of the dead alien, and the third part, the discovery of the eggs chamber. The protagonists are three members of the Nostromo´s crew: Dallas (Tom Skerritt) Kane (John Hurt) and Lambert (Veronica
Symbolism is an inherent literary device used throughout Ishirō Honda’s 1962 film King Kong vs. Godzilla. By utilizing two of the most iconic monsters in cinematic history, King Kong and Godzilla, Honda depicts the shift from one culture to another and the battle that ensued. Honda also shows the different cultures that King Kong and Godzilla represent: Kong as the embodiment of modern Japanese culture, while Godzilla represents the traditional Japanese culture. However, when comparing these two creatures, one must first look at their origins from two other supplemental sources: Merian Cooper’s 1933 film King Kong and Ishirō Honda’s 1954 film Godzilla. These films reveal how each entity differs from Ishirō Honda’s 1962 film King Kong vs.
The two movies to pick to compare were the King Kong from 1933 and the King Kong from 2005. I chose these because I have seen both of them and think because they are so different from one another. Many things changed in the making of the 2005 version of King Kong. Things such as the technology that was used, the actors/actresses, the animations in the movie, and overall feel of the movie. This movie took place in New York in 1933. A film maker and his crew travel to a place called Skull Island to make a movie. Skull Island has many over sized animals such as dinosaurs and an oversized ape. The film crew takes the ape back to New York to be observed because they had never seen anything like it. Somehow during this whole adventure, the giant
(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”.
Monsters Inc. might just be seen as a Pixar animated kid’s movie when you first see it, but when you look deeper into it, you can see many similarities to general economic concepts, as well as our economy today. There are two totally different worlds in the movie; there is the world of the monsters and then there is the world of the humans, however, the monsters have to rely on the humans to survive. The monsters have to steal the screams of human children to use as a source of energy that the monsters use to power their homes, cars and any other electronic devices; and they do this through a corporation called Monsters Inc. Unfortunately, in the movie the world is starting to change and the kids are becoming less
This fear was evident in the science fiction films made in that decade. The Japanese, who had already suffered the most from the atomic fallout, were foremost in delivering this terror on film. Godzilla was the result of the American atomic ability. Godzilla wreaked havoc on Tokyo and Japanese citizens. Godzilla can be seen as a metaphor for the horrors the Japanese people endured and was a way to face their fears in the safety of a movie theater.

Victor refused to create a girl creature to avoid a lot of problems, but he did not realize the hell the monster would end up causing him. Victor regrets trying to play God because his action would cause him great troubles and consequences.
“I’m just a soul whose intentions are good, Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood” a verse from the notorious rapper Lil Wayne who judges one’s physical appearance rather the inner qualities that never is seen. Throughout the last century, society has been based on superficial concepts of good or evil, beautiful or ugly, ordinary or abnormal. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the Creature is depicted as a overwhelming ugly monster with superhuman strength and the lust to kill his next victim. Playing with the elements of God, Dr. Frankenstein’s dream was to bring upon life regardless of how it was created. Frankenstein’s creation is human in the sense that
The first Alien movie is one of my favors whose sound evokes terror and suspense. The scene that used sounds build terror and suspense is very intense was when Captain Dallas was inside the cramped air-duct. The other members were tracking the Alien on a computer and communicating it to Dallas. The computer was making clicking sound to show were it was located and then all the sudden the tracking sound stops and you have stone cold silent. This silence creates an eerie vacuum that sense of something impending is about to bust. Then all the sudden the clicking sound started up again and begins to get louder and louder and is moving towards Dallas. Then silent, and you then see Dallas gets out of air duct, turn and is face to face with the Alien.
When picturing a stereotype of a monster, often the thought of an asymmetrical, gruesome, and evil figure is visualized. A creature born to wreak havoc and compromise the peace of the defenseless and innocent. Because in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein the common conception of a monstrous creature is not mirrored, the reader is forced to question who the true monster of the novel is. At first, the reader believes that Victor’s monster is to assume position, but as the plot unfolds, the situation demands closer attention. Upon further analysis, the reader can conclude by the character’s actions and motives, that Victor Frankenstein’s creature is not the real monster, rather Victor, himself.
