In the age of TV series being the craze, I feel with The Accelerator’s sense of mystery and sci-fi touch, it would be a hit. However, there are a few changes I see fit. Unless the opening scene with the painting is necessary and connects in further episodes it could do without. The opening scene with Jenna and Damien sets up confusion for the rest of the episode. When Damien gets the news notification about the Ambrosia sale it associates him with the company. I felt that Ambrosia was the company he was asking an investment for, which confused me when I figured out later they weren’t the same companies. I feel the episode could start out with the scene with Cole and the engineers. I also felt that Damien and Jenna’s scenes were too choppy

After being shipped off to a Catholic boarding school in Perth to become a priest, he spends the entirety of the film travelling home to Broome with two hippies in a kombi van and his homeless, alcoholic uncle, Uncle Tadpole. Good morning/afternoon Miss Radunz and class.

And Musicians, who are stereotyped as vain and self centred, which is represented by Lester. Using these stereotypes effectively
Individual’s identity can be formed through significant events but these events can also change and create a new identity. In the film ‘The sapphires’, Kay is introduced as a victim of the stolen generation which changed her life and her identity as she grew up believing she was white.

As the pilot continues, there are some good plotlines, but there’s simply not enough anticipation, suspense, tension, and/or romance. The pilot relies a bit too much on dialogue.

Additionally, Walter also belittles Beneatha's dream of becoming a doctor, implying that women are fit only for supporting roles: “Who the hell told you, you had to be a doctor? If you so crazy ‘bout messing ‘round with sick people – then go be a nurse like other women – or just get married and be quiet” (Gilbert et al., 1961). Yet, Beneatha isn’t concerned about getting married and is focused on her career, “Get over it? What are you talking about, Ruth? Listen, I’m going to be a doctor. I’m not worried about who I’m going to marry yet – if I ever get married” (Gilbert et al., 1961). Beneatha’s friend Asagai believes that love should be enough for women, however, Beneatha challenges this idea by stating that she needs more, such as a

In the film Central Station (Central do Brasil), Walter Salles presents the characters as on a journey to self-discovery. It is a film about identity. Central Station is a melodrama of transformation based on an anomalous-duo comprising of Dora, a jaded retired schoolteacher, and Josué, a nine year-old boy, who embark on a cross-country journey in search of the boy’s father upon the unfortunate death of his mother. The film presents its analysts with many possible interpretations and significations due to its combination of different themes, visual allusions and narrative elements. Central do Brasil film can be interpreted in three ways: as an extended metaphor on the writing process and a narration of personal stories and experiences, as a figurative journey of Brazilian search for its identity depicted in Dora’s transformation and Josué’s quest for his roots, and as a theological allegory inviting a “theological reading of humans struggling to maintain a relationship to an absent God” (Bowman 1). Through a detailed analysis film’s content, production, and reception, this paper interprets Central do Brasil as an allegory representing the pursuit for identity and transformation.
This films depiction of life during the Civil War gives us a look into the many different point of views it was experienced from. Ada and Inman had gone through so much in such a short period of time they found their way back to each other. It was a beautiful love story cut short by the tragedy of death. They both faced many hardships during the war but both seem to find people that help along the way.
After viewing the film “GEN SILENT”, I was speechless by some of the experiences and challenges faced by the aging LGBT seniors. To me, it is a disgrace to see in this day and age that human beings are experiencing these challenges (emotional, social, and psychological) and stigma by their families, strangers and health care providers simply because of their sexual orientations or preferences. I feel that it is a disgrace for such an inequality to continue to be of existence in the 21st century because I believe as human beings we should all be more considerate and treat everyone with respect and dignity.
Lazer Team is an outstanding film considering the Rooster Teeth Productions’ resources and their previous no attempts on making something as big as a full length feature film. The film was funded entirely via Indiegogo where almost 38 thousand people donated nearly $2.5 million.
Surprisingly I can say that almost everything that they said in this video was extremely interesting and new knowledge to myself. However, if I had to choose what was the most interesting “take away” overall into this video would have probably been the soft but strong magnet. Whenever I think of a magnet I automatically assume something hard, cold, and well the pretty obvious look of a magnet. However, when they first showed us the magnet my mind was racing to find out what it was. To me it almost looked as though it was a beauty blender that you would use when applying makeup to your face. I was quite shocked once they had announced that it was no beauty blender but instead it was a magnet. This video was filmed in 2005 so you would assume
Vagabond is a 105 minutes film made in the winter of 1985 in Southern France. The French title of the film is Sans toit ni loi, which means without a roof or law, however, loi also means rights and rule. The film opens with a shot of a frozen woman’s corpse, whose name is Mona, lying in a ditch. We know nothing about the identity of the dead girl until the voice-over of a woman (Agnes Varda) and the flesh back’s sequences in which people met and remember the girl in the last few weeks of her life, provide information about her. As it can be seen in the movie, Mona is a hitchhiker homeless woman who has left everything behind and struggle to meet her basic needs independently. She talks rarely and seems to be not interested in anything. The range of characters who have contacted Mona and accompanied her for a short or longer time is quite wide. The perception of these various witnesses of Mona comes from their own vision rather than a real understanding and construct different expectations based on their own fantasies, desire, and norms. Thus, when Mona behaves against their wishes and follows her own way, they eject her from their place or vehicle.
