A Beautiful Mind A Beautiful Mind is the story of John Nash (Russell Crowe), a talented mathematician, stricken with a mental illness while at the height of his career. He is diagnosed with Schizophrenia, a disease of the mind. Schizophrenia is one of the most disabling and emotionally devastating illnesses known to man. Even though there is no cure for schizophrenia it is a very treatable disease. Most of those afflicted by schizophrenia respond to drug therapy, and many are able to lead productive and fulfilling lives. This movie is about a man's struggle to become sane again and continue with his life. The movie starts out when John Nash is a freshman at Princeton. He sets out to come up with an original idea of how he would be able to set himself apart from the rest of the class? He comes up with the idea, eventually graduates and is presented with a job at Wheeler, on the campus of MIT. He teaches and does small jobs for the government. He's called in to break a Russian code and he is swept away into the world of international conspiracy and is presented with a top-secret mission to find codes in various magazines like Life, Time, etc. - and report back to his handler, William Parcher (Ed Harris). Everything seems to be going fine in John's life but one day everything falls apart. His cover is blown, John believes the Russians have discovered his work and have taken him to a secret mental institution. After being taken to the mental institution, he realizes he has a problem after he goes through shock therapy for months. Throughout the whole movie John's mind makes people up and he thinks they are real people but they are actually figments of his imagination. They cause him to have...

The first song in Beauty and the Beast is called "Belle". This is fitting because you get to know the main character of the film, but it also is the setting for some conflicts that will arise later. Belle is seen as a modest young woman who has a daily pattern, "every day like the one before". She sees the town as small and poor and dreams of far off places that she reads about in her fairy tale books. Attractive and tall, she stands out among the other villagers. The interactions between them and her prove that she is not very popular in her village. She is asked by the baker how she is doing, but is interrupted while she tries to explain the book she read. This could be seen as a way to elevate Belle's intelligence over the rest. While she dreams of far off places, the villagers continue in their daily, dull existence. They see her as odd and peculiar, "with a dreamy far off look and her nose stuck in a book, what a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle." She is also seen as modest and humble. She ignores the comments and stares of the other villagers until the very end when she turns around and everyone scatters. When the baker doesn't bother listening to her story she shrugs it off. The bookseller likes her and this is shown when he gives her the book she's read twice before. The next character introduced is Gaston; the stereotypical "hottie". He's large and full of himself. His sidekick, Le Fou; which literally means "fool", follows him around and compliments his ego. Gaston declares he's going to make Belle his wife, but misses his opportunity because he is too busy looking at himself in the mirror. Then...

Big Daddy is a story about a hopeless bachelor named Sonny Koufax, played by Sandler, who adopts a child in order to win over his girlfriend. As you may expect, a loser bachelor with no job being responsible for a child might lead to some pretty funny situations. Let me start off by saying that I like this movie, but it does have alot of shortcomings that may hinder your viewing experience. First off, though you may think that the plot seems reasonable, it is really just an excuse to show a father feeding his son ketchup and let him do whatever he wants. But then again, the plot never really is important in a comedy anyway. Not to say that it is a bad plot, because it keeps you interested enough in between jokes, I just find it to be a bit contrived. The plot really isn't anything special, it is really quite average actually. It isn't horrible, but not significantly good either. As far as the comedy goes, it proves to be pretty good. Though this isn't the kind of film that will have you rolling on the floor laughing until you pull a muscle, you will get a few good laughs and alot of chuckles. On the whole though, the movie is pretty funny, and when you get done watching it, you will be satisfied. Though the more you see it, the more of an empty feeling the picture gives you. It really doesn't have too much replay value, unless you are a Sandler die hard like me, so it probably isn't too great of an addition to a movie collection. That being said, it is more than worth a rental. There is definitley enough material to keep you entertained for a single viewing. Though I like this move, not...

... 46;s brother, who is older by some number of years, also works in the mines. The first impression that the viewer gets of Tony is that of a stereotypical big brother, who would give his younger sibling a slap round the head just for listening to his record collection. However, there is a lot more to Tony then just the big brother slant. Tony, who like his father, is on strike against the closure of the mines. He is young and hot headed, and prepared to go to the extremes in order to achieve his purposes. This is evident when he tries to arm himself against the riot police who are an imposing and faceless opposition, were deployed to stifle the protests made by the striking workers. Tony who is somewhat of a working class rebel, he has been hardened from working in the mines and can be very aggressive, this is evident in the scene where Tony and his father meet a non-striking mineworker in the supermarket. An action totally justified by the cause of the striking miners. Tony, like his father, has found himself in a position where he has had to cope with the possibility of losing his entire future. He is emotionally unequipped with the ability to express himself properly so he does so by using the strike and picket lines as a medium to release his locked away emotions. Tony shares the same attitudes towards ballet that everyone else in the community has and he is deeply displeased to find that his younger brother has taken it up as his main pastime. I think that Tony sees this as just another problem, and this affects the relationship between he and Billy. Only when Billy gains acceptance and support from his family does Tony finally rebuild...

In your own words, explain your motivation to seek a career in MEDICINE. Discuss your philosophy of the medical profession and indicate your goals relevant to the profession. (Limited to 62 lines of text only) Feel free to delete or add stuff! Please return AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!! The doctor performed the Babinski's sign among other lower limb neurological examination techniques to show the extent of the paralysis. I went up to the patient, took her hand in mine and looked deep into her eyes in an effort to gain some insight of her affliction; while attempting to reassure her that everything would be alright. The fear in her eyes was memorably vivid as both she and I came to terms with the vulnerability of the frail human body. As a hospital volunteer, escorting patients, my interactions with many had revealed the therapeutic and comforting effects of an encouraging smile and a friendly conversation. I consider patients analgous to refugees who must be treated benevolently and gravely, without condescension. In order for a physician to help a patient cope with an illness, it is vital to consider the patient's emotional requisite while standing solitary on the narrow ledge of physical torment. The sutured skin is all of his operation that the patient will see. It is the surgeon's inscription left upon his body for the rest of his life. For the patient, it is the emblazonry,of his suffering, a reminder of his mortality. I fortunately, have not yet experienced much to consiously habituate me to the painful evidence of one's mortality. Therefore, especially in stressful situations, I appreciate the reassuring confidence and warmth, conveyed through a physician's bedside manner; that can gradually transform a patient's imminent fears into strength and hope.

The movie is set in the 17th centuries. The French Jesuits venture into the wilderness of North America to convert the "savages" to Christianity. Father LaForgue is assigned to serve a remote mission, 1500 miles from Quebec. He sets out on a journey that becomes a struggle against hunger, cold, and exhaustion. The journey tests the mind, body, and soul of the priest. The priest who dreams of becoming a martyr finds out that he underestimated the ordeal involved in his fate and the test to which his faith is put. An Algonquin Indians have been hired by the religious community to escort him on the long and dangerous journey. Father LaForgue is shocked by the barbarity and promiscuity of the "savages". The Algonquins, who have nicknamed him "Black Robe", in turn wonder whether the man with the strange practices is a sorcerer. A young worker, Daniel, is brought along to help communicate with the Indians and to further spread the word of God. At the beginning of the journey, things are fairly calm, until Daniel falls in love with the Algonquin chief's daughter. He begins to question whether or not they should be trying to convert the Indians to a new faith. He sees that it is just as difficult to believe in his own faith, as it is to follow that of the Algonquins. After a considerable time on the journey, the tribe has decided that the "Black Robe" is, in fact, a demon that is trying to take their spirit. They abandon him after testing to see if he is a demon by leaving a dead baby for him. One he blesses the child; they see his ritual as trying to steal its soul they leave him, as does Daniel, who has decided that LaForgue is wrong to convert anyone...

"Blade Runner: Director's Cut" is a science-fiction film set in the not too distant future, 2019. It portrays a bleak future – a large, dark, impersonal world. It is within this place that the film raises the central question – What is it that makes us human? What is it that distinguishes us from machines or objects that surround us? These questions are relevant to today's world - increasingly dominated by computers, machines, advertising and entertainment. More people seem to be finding themselves living in an 'inhuman' world. It is a world where they feel alone. In the film's first scenes the makers provide their answers to these questions, but before getting there a number of other possible answers are given and rejected. At the start of the film we learn that four replicants have escaped from slavery on another world and returned to Earth. A specialist replicant-hunter (Blade Runner), Rick Deckard, is given the job of tracking down these escapees and killing them. This is not, however, a simple chase film. In the beginning we see a person given a test, the 'Voigt Kampff' test. It is a test of his emotional reactions to situations. We will learn as the film progresses that this test is used to distinguish 'replicant' from 'human'. The theory being that replicants lack any empathetic attunement with others and so, by this, exhibit their difference from human beings. Even though human beings can also lack this empathetic relationship with others they still maintain their human status. Already we have the central theme being hinted at – how do we decide who is 'human'? For the replicants, particularly Roy Batty, there is an association between humanity and a long life. Their trip back to Earth was motivated by the desire for more life, to extend it until it matched...

Blade Runner (1982) is a futuristic Film Noir that takes a cynical look at the intermingling of technology and humanity. Set in 2019 Los Angeles (presumably after the Third World War), the film focuses on Rick Deckard, a former police officer and bounty hunter who is reluctantly recruited to search for and kill four rebel android replicants (genetically-engineered robots who have strength and intelligence superior to human beings but who are designed with a lack of emotion). Originally created to work as slaves on an off-world plant, the replicants have returned to earth in search of their creator, Tyrell, in order to force him to extend their lives, which have been artificially limited to four years in order to prevent them from developing human-like emotions. The quest of the replicants and Deckard's continuing struggle with his emotions leads to a central them of the film: What does it mean to be human? Are humans more than just a body? This essay will focus on the characters of Deckard and Rachel and examine how emotion and feeling are central to their being. Rachel is a Nexus 6 replicant designed to be "more human than human". Tyrell has not only created her with superior intelligence but has also cruelly given her a set of memories, which have allowed her to believe that she is actually human. The tangible proof of Rachel's memories lies in a set of photographs she has. Rachel's photographs, like all personal photographs, serve as a visual history of who she is. Photographs are a theme continually repeated throughout the film. Whether we consciously are aware of it or not, photographs help us define who we are. Births and birthday celebrations, funerals, vacations, graduations, marriages, etc. are all just fleeting moments in time. Photographs, however, allow us to extend those...

"Friendliness is simply the joy of sharing without conditions, without expectations, with no desire that something should be returned- not even gratefulness."(Friendship 1). Many believe that to know friendship is to know a special kind of joy. In the dictionary, friendship is described as a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. Even though there are many meanings of the word friendship there are only two kinds of friendship, good and bad. Also, many different people have demonstrated the power of friendship but one woman holds the true meaning of it. In life, many friends come and go but the best friends stay for a lifetime. There are many types of good friendships, such as, friendships with actual friends, family, or just acquaintances. Friendship is an extremely important aspect of life. Good friends are cherished and adored, some would say, "the road to a friends house is never long" (Friendship 1). This shows that, when you have a great friend it doesn't take a lot to be friends with that person. Being someone's friend means to know the in's and out's of that person and even their darkest secrets. You also love, respect, and know that person very well. Another friendship is one that a person has with his or her family. Sometimes these can be the best friendships because that person knows the family or family member better than anyone else does. On the other hand, they can be bad because you never get a break from your family because you live with them each day. The last type of friendship is an acquaintance. This is a person that someone would just say "hi" or "bye" and maybe has a quick conversation. They don't really share much, and are not very close, but they are friends. This is what most...

Bonnie and Clyde directed by Arthur Penn changed the course of American cinema. Setting a high point for screen violence that life history should not label as a bloodbath but rather as a rare film that presents the absence of cruelty which throws the audience off balance. The film is more of a representation to the Great Depression, starring the remarkable team of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the so-called antiheroes who make their way across the South and Midwest robbing banks with Clyde's brother Buck, his wife Blanch, and their trustworthy driver C.W. Moss. Bonnie and Clyde is an unforgettable classic that has the ability to create suspense and meaning with the use of Arthur Penn's style of sound, symbols, and camera movement. By today's standards, Bonnie and Clyde appears almost tame but, when it came out with its initial release, the level of violence was viewed as shocking. During these violent sequences the musical background always begins to play with a banjo get-a-way song to portray the characters that are in a hurry to escape, which is called mickeymousing. This theme song reoccurs throughout the film to intensify the situation then abruptly stops when they are no longer running from the law. As the film progresses the background music begins to change as the seasons change from a frantic fun hurry to romantic music linking the love that Bonnie and Clyde have for each other and their love of crime. Arthur Penn also uses sound effects such as the screeching of the cars, glass breaking, doors creaking, as well as the major sound effect of guns being shot. He uses at times nonsynchronous sound such as the guns being shot from inside the bushes where the police are hidden at one point in time of the film. Overlapping...

Most critics say that postmodern films such as Drowning Mona are devoid of symbolism and deeper socioeconomic meaning. That this could not be further from the truth is demonstrated by the glistening repartee and subterranean post-cognitive symbols both hidden and over in the genius 1947 film by Pedro Almodóvar, "Drowning Mona". Almodóvar, born in France's difficult yet inspiring German occupation, shows his age and more than a little of his own personal baggage in the disorientingly sequential nightmare seens of the protagonist, Jean-Luc Picard. Picard's natural inclination towards subversion and sociopoetic license imbues all seens, but especially the credits, with his own tragic sense of life. From the first credit to the last, Picards straightforward irony reveals itself to all but the most cynical of modern viewers. Many critics have said that films from the 40s are oblique and tend to obscure facts rather than show the troubled Spanish realism of Occupied France. I believe it would behoove them to watch what Almodóvar does with the credits in "Drowning Mona". The landscape of Barcelona is projected outwards from Picard's psyche onto 1940's Paris, in a slow-witted conundrum that can only lead the viewer to a deeper understanding of what life was like at that time and the socioeconomic disparities between then and now. As they say, it was a different time. While the cinematographic techniques obviously owe a great deal to the influence of both Dalí and Hitchcock (who comes later), the originality lies of "Drowning Mona" lies in how the credits scroll majestically one after the other like herds of wildebeasts sweeping across the African horizon. For me, there is little like it. For film, there is nothing like it....

Bowling for Columbine is an interesting and entertaining documentary about the state of gun laws and violence in the United States as compared to similar countries. In the film Micheal Moore asks questions such as, "Why do Americans kill each other with guns 10 times as often as other countries?" and, "What could have caused the massacre at Columbine in Colorado?" While these questions may not be answered specifically during the film, many interesting and sometimes horrifying facts are brought to light. Clearly Micheal Moore does not support the current gun laws in America and makes that very clear, nor does he seem to care for the practices and ethics of the NRA despite being a lifetime member. Through out the movie various scenes are shown of Charleton Heston, the NRA president, making completely inappropriate speeches at the worst possible times. Shortly after the Columbine shootings he is shown yelling, "From my cold dead hands!" while lifting a rifle into the air before a cheering crowd of NRA members. While this may seem bad enough as it is, this "pro-gun rally" as Micheal Moore calls it is actually being held in Littleton, which was where the shootings took place. Moore goes as far as to personally interview Heston and ask him to apologize for going to towns to hold rallies just after tragedies have occurred. Of course Heston declines and proceeds to turn his back on a picture of a little girl who was shot and killed in another school shooting. Another major issue presented by Moore is the idea that the media presents minorities in a bad light, particularly the evening news and the television show COPS. On the evening news every night in America viewers are shown murders and various crimes committed by the anonymous "urban" male. Even while crime rates are steadily dropping year after year the rate of murders shown on the news has gone up 600%, which brings...

Michael Moore knows how to be controversial. In the notorious documentary, Bowling for Columbine, the director Michael Moore, illustrates how the American media greatly affects people's actions. This induced fear leads to American's obsessing over their protection as well as causes for many criminals to feel as if they need to heavily protect themselves. Michael Moore portrays many statistics representing America's number of people in jail, gun owners, etc, to other countries around the world. This review will not specify those numbers due to evidence of Mr. Moore's lack of truth within some of these stats. Everyday, people around the world enjoy turning on the news and learning about new items that may be hazardous for their health, ways of prevention, and where the latest bank robbery is taking place. Michael Moore shows his audience a country, known as America that is extremely afraid. He compares news stories to other countries' headlines and how different these really are. In America, citizens mostly see news relating to violence or headlines that scream: "Beware! Killer Bees are here!" These banners provoke fear in people immediately. Other headlines state such facts as "Who's Breaking in your home?" "Is your family safe?" This entire notion about how unsafe the US is leads to a very unsettling feeling for most Americans. Of course, the second Amendment states that Americans have the right to protect themselves with a weapon, however, in countries like Canada, a person's door is usually open most of time because there is not such a large notion of fear. In regards to criminals, the easy access for guns on the black market helps an individual obtain any sort of gun. On the other hand, these violent acts are committed because of the many strict rules that are planted on Americans. There was a cartoon...

Boys N the Hood: Justified Violence Violence is a part of our life in today's society. The word violence is used quite often in everyday conversations. Not only is violence used and described in daily conversations, but violence is used in the entertainment world as well. By saying entertainment world, in specific, the movie entertainment business is meant. Violence has been used in movies as far as anyone can remember. The original version of Godzilla was made quite a few years ago and with less technology, but that did not stop the makers of the movie to include violence. Sometimes violence is used merely for visual sake and has nothing to do with the plot of the story. The violence in the film, Boyz N the Hood, is entertaining, visual, and universal; some viewers may consider some scenes too violent and unnecessary, however, from the filmmaker's point of view the scenes are necessary to illustrate conflict and resolution among the characters. The exact definition of violence is: an exertion of physical force so as to injure or abuse. Bailey and Hale put the definition in a broader prospective and define violence as a "series of events, the course of which or the outcomes of which, cause injury or damage to a persons or property." The two definitions are similar. They both define violence as causing an injury. Using those definitions of violence, one can easily conclude that violence is used in a sense as a second language when making films. The movie, Boyz N the Hood, is a typical example of how violence is used in movies. The main character is Tre Styles, a teenager growing up in South Central Los Angeles. His father, Furious, is divorced and lives away from Tre and his mother, but he's still involved in Tre's upbringing. He...

COMPARING THE MOVIE BRAVEHEART TO REALITY Braveheart may not be completely historically accurate, but yet it does do a good job of portraying the spirit of the times. The battles with William Wallace and King Edward were pretty much accurate but did still have their faults. In this essay I will be finding the fact and fiction that was depicted in the movie Braveheart. Mel Gibson did an excellent job capturing the essence of the character William Wallace. Although his portrayal is probably closer to the legendary man rather that the historical one. Mel Gibson did much research to prepare for the role of willam Wallace. In the words of many of his deciples Wallace was as brave, ruthless, strong, and also honorable beyond his time. They portrayed Wallace in the film to be a fighter of freedom, who believed in his causes and took it to the extreme, which in truth is the same about the real willam Wallace as well. Through the first 30 minutes of the film they showed how in the childhood years of willams life his father and older brother were killed in a peace meeting with the English. But in accual facts his dad and older brother were not killed then. But years later when willam was the age of 19 his dad was killed in a battle in 1291. And his mother and brother were still alive many years after the fact. Many of the battles that took place in this film showed how when the horsemen got near they would use long spears to kill the horses and knock the rider off to better attack them. This method was called the schitron which was later credited to willam Wallace who invented the method. In this film they show willam (mel gibson) to be a shorter...

The Breakfast Club 1 Over the weekend, I watched The Breakfast Club directed by Oliver Stone. It had a great cast, which included famous actors such as Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, and Alley Sheedy. Each actor and actress had his or her own personality in this movie. Because of this great cast and the role each one played, I found this movie to be sensational. From what I was told about this movie from friends that have seen it before, the high school that the movie was filmed at really existed in the 1980's. There were thousands of students that attended that school. Much of what the movie was based on dealt with the lives of five different students that attended. The director picked only the lives of five students because most high schools have students that fit into a category. What category each student fits into depends on the kind of student he or she is. The movie took a few months to film once they got all of the characters to play the parts. It turned out that the students that attended the school while the film was being made got free tickets to the show the day it was open at he box office! The movie takes place at Shermer High School in Shermer, Illinois. There are five students serving detention in the school library on a Saturday morning. Each student represents a particular stereotype or is labeled for what kind of students they are. They 2 are classified as follows: a princess, a criminal, an athlete, a basket case, and a genius. At the beginning of the movie, they all can not stand to be in the same room with one another. They begin to get on each other's nerves and make fun of one another. However,...

Jesse and Michel In Jesse's opening shot we see a close up of his silver toe caps wiggling, and the song that is playing is "I'm just a bad boy" on his way out of a casino. He doesn't come across as very slick as he is reading a "Silver Surfer comic book which he refers to several times during the film e.g. when he is discussing with the boy at the comic book stand "only a jerk would stay around when he could leave" which does refer to Jesse as he can go and escape the law but he is staying so he can try and get Monica (the girl he loves) to go with him. He is fond of Jerry Lee Lewis a rock and roll icon. He is a poser e.g. he was changing the television channels with the television zapper and he was pretending he was shooting at it. He steals fast, open topped, flashy cars like porches. He also lies to Monica about where he gets the cars from. Where as Michel's opening statement is "After all, I'm an Arsehole". He is also reading a newspaper and looking at the cartoons and the girls in their underwear. He is wearing a trilby, a shirt, jacket and a tie he looks smartish unlike Jesse. He has a silver chain around his wrist and he is nearly always wearing sunglasses throught the film. He seems to be able to woo the woman as he has a woman on the lookout for a car to steal. Michel also strokes his lips with his thumb repeatedly exactly the same way all the way through the film. I think this means that he might be thinking and maybe trying to concentrate. He also likes top of the range cars and driving fast. He...
