  • On The Waterfront - 460 words
    On The Waterfront While watching the movie On the Waterfront directed by Elia Kazan, I was bombarded by many timeless topics about the human condition. The most striking of which was the struggle for power. Throughout the movie, the desire to be in control was the underlying motivation for the violence witnessed. It was the foundation to the falling out between family members and the basis for which lives were taken. Kazan brings the classic gangster story to a new level with the characters depicting a modern rags to riches theme. Unfortunately, this rise to power left the lives of many forever changed. Kazan thoughtfully describes this struggle through the use of several artistic techniques ...

    ... had little wish to draw him into this conversation. I decided to change the subject quickly. "Coincidentally, yes sir. Why I'm calling, though, is to inquire about the number of outboard motors that have gone missing since last week." "Pardon me?" The tone of his voice took a sudden sinister turn that sent a twinge through my bladder. Like the rookie I was, I had made some as yet unrecognized blunder. I felt the strong urge to conclude the interview immediately, but it was too late. He knew my name. He knew my brother's name. He knew why I'd called. He knew everything. I'd have to bluff past my own ignorance. "Well, I was wondering if the police suspected some kind of theft ring being i ...

  • Globalisation: Friend Or Foe - 1,052 words
    Globalisation: Friend Or Foe Globalisation: Friend Or Foe Dramatic Changes have taken place in Sydneys cultural and economic landscapes during the past two decades. These changing landscapes have been linked in both political discourse and the popular press to Sydneys emerging role as a global city. Evidence supporting this theory has come from some academic analyses of globalisation in the 1990s. Global cities are identified by their role as command centers for organising the global economy. Such cities have been characterised by their openness to global flows of commodities, money, ideas and information. They have become destinations for both national and international migration of skilled ...

At that moment I rationalized I was far too new at this job to be handcuffed by anything so stuffy as professional pride. I ripped the bloody page off the machine and read it. From this Thistle and I learned that, in fact, there was a lone, masked gunman holding several hostages inside the Northern Isles Credit Union and that police were currently negotiating for their safe release. The suspect was also reported to have several sticks of dynamite strapped to his waist. Primer cord ran from these to a battery pac ...

  • In Jaws Terror Strikes This Terror Is What Fuels The Story When The First Attack Is Learned By The Worn Everyone Is Gripped W - 455 words
    In Jaws terror strikes. This terror is what fuels the story. When the first attack is learned by the worn everyone is gripped with fear. As more die this grip tightens and slowly chokes the town. The terror starts because the killer is unseen and unknown, impossible to see and impossible to escape. There is also the evident amount of death involved with the shark attack.

Less then a mile between the shark and people, the shark sees you but you will never see the shark. Not only is it unseen but also heartless ...

  • Louis Satchmo Armstrong - 883 words
    Louis Satchmo Armstrong Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong was one of the most popular musicians of his time. Upon initiating my research, I was surprised to find conflicting dates as to when he was born. Encarta Africa said he was born in 1901, 1001 things to know about African American history-1898, regular Encarta - 1900, "Little Louis and the jazz band" by Angela Shelf Medearis says his date of birth is August 4, 1901. The book "Jazz Stars" by Richard Rennert states that Louis Armstrong was born in 1899, the book "Louis Armstrong" by Sam Tanenhaus says he was born on July 4, 1900. The reason why they have so many different dates is due to the fact that he probably wasn't born in a hastpital and t ...

  • Review On Sunrise - 933 words
    Review On Sunrise Introduction to Cinema Studies Assessment Task 2 Mark Thomas Brand 9810139u April 29, 1999 Adrian Danks For this assignment I have chosen question 2 on the discussion of a particular edit. The film I have chosen to discuss is Sunrise, and the edit is from the portion of the film where the lady from the city and the husband are discussing the city at the lake. I chose this particular edit for a couple of reasons the first being that for it's time the effect it produces is quite remarkable. It's also the scene that caught my eye and held it for the longest period. Visually rich without the need of sound. The edit flows through a variety of images and the shots that surround i ...

  • Robert E Lee - 720 words
    Robert E. Lee Robert E. Lee has always been thought by many as a god-like figure. To others he was a contradiction. Born on January 19, 1807 at Stratford, Virginia, Robert E. Lee was the fourth child of Revolutionary War hero, Henry Light Horse Harry Lee, and Ann Hill Carter Lee. Raised mostly by his mother, Robert learned patience, control, and discipline from her. As a young man, he was exposed to Christianity and accepted its faith. In contrast to the strong example of his mother and the church, Robert saw his father go from failed enterprise to failed enterprise. As a result, young Robert tried harder to succeed. Robert was accepted to the United States Military Academy and graduated 2nd ...

  • Summertime - 451 words
    Summertime It was early dawn on a Friday morning, as the sun rises from the distant blue ocean we wait for daylight to breakout. My friend and I sat down on spot on the beach, as I focus closely at the surface of the waterfront the sand is very white, much like the winter snowflakes. As I look along the different points along the shore, the waves and ripple's of the salty water crash upon various sections of the beach. These include a nudist section, a gay section, and a family section, I wasn't sure but there might have been a section reserved for nude, gay families. My friend and I unfolded our garden chairs and opened our cooler box in the family section of the beach. After putting on our ...
