  • Cruel Intentions - 206 words
    Cruel Intentions Cruel Intentions Manipulative teenagers in a story about seduction Roger Kumble has definitely outdone himself when he wrote and directed Cruel Intentions.

The plot begins when Kathryn places a bet. Up to this point Sabastian could seduce any woman in bed with him.

  • Dangerous Liaisons Vs Cruel Intentions - 1,309 words
    Dangerous Liaisons Vs. Cruel Intentions It is my intention to compare the book, Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos, to its modern movie version, Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. I intend to examine how the original French text was modified in reference to plot, character, morals/values, and themes. I also plan to discuss how these transformations change the meaning of the story and reflect different cultural/historical contexts. There are some major differences between these two works, if only because of when they were written. First, the plots of both works need to be discussed and explained how they are different. The stories of both works have basically the same str ...

  • Death Penalty Is Cruel - 897 words
    Death Penalty Is Cruel At the onset of this assignment, I believed that capital punishment was wrong for many reasons. At the conclusion of this assignment, I believe even more strongly that the death penalty is wrong, and have come upon more reasons for my belief. It is extremely difficult, however, to find case law that endorses the abolishment of capital punishment, since capital punishment has not been yet overturned. From a legal point of view, the best argument against capital punishment is that it constitutes cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eight and Fourteenth amendments to the Constitution. Most people would agree with the statement that the Constitution, and the am ...

  • Richard B Sewall Claims That Melvilles Vision In Mobydick Is A Cruel Reminder Of The Original Terror, In Which All Moral Judg - 1,782 words
    ... Richard B. Sewall claims that Melville's vision in Moby-Dick is a cruel reminder of the original terror, in which all moral judgements are accompanied by tensions, paradoxes, and ambiguities. In response to this statement, I agree that all moral judgements are fraught with tensions, paradoxes and ambiguities. Much of Ishmael's experiences while on land and at sea deal with making moral judgements; the act of forming an opinion by discerning what is right and wrong. Melville uses Ishmael to prove his vision that moral judgements are derived from (life) experiences directly affected by tensions, paradoxes, and ambiguities. Melville uses excellent representations of how tension can impact ...

  • 1984 - 1,513 words
    1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four is a compelling novel, written in the period just after W.W.II. It details the life of one man, Winston Smith, and his struggles with an undoubtedly fascist government. The book is set approximately in the year 1984, in which Winston's society is ruled by a governing force known as The Party. At the head of this government is a fictional figure known as Big Brother, to whom all citizens must love and respect. In this society, privacy and freedom do not exist. People are constantly monitored by telescreens, and subjected to a constant barrage of propaganda. Any devious thought or action is dealt with by cruel and deadly punishment. Winston is a worker in one of the g ...

    ... hidden beneath the dark mustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother. This shows the power that the Party and OBrien has had over Winston; they have taken his old understanding and beliefs and transformed them into an attitude that complies with those of the Party. The conditioning of an individual for a utopian society often results in the repression of individuality. Both novels attempt to create a utopian society. The major thing that holds t ...

  • 65279 It Is Unusual When A Masterpiece Develops Out Of An Assignment, But That Is, More Or Less, What - 1,904 words
    It is unusual when a masterpiece develops out of an assignment, but that is, more or less, what happened in the case of Gullivers Travels. The Martinus Scriblerus Club proposed to satirize the follies and vices of learned, scientific and modern men. Each of the members was given a topic, and Swifts was to satirize the numerous and popular volumes describing voyages to faraway lands. Ten years passed between the Scriblerus project and the publication of Gullivers Travels, but when Swift finished, he had completed a definitive work in travel literature. Moreover, he had completed what was to become a childrens classic (in its abridged form) and a satiric masterpiece. Swifts main character, Gul ...

  • Boooooooring Exclaimed Marisa Bored Witless During A Mathematics Lesson, Whilst She Threw Her Feet On The Desk Ta - 893 words
    "Boooooooring!" exclaimed Marisa bored witless during a mathematics lesson, whilst she threw her feet on the desk. "Take your feet off the desk this instant young lady!" shouted the hysterical Ms. Daemon as she had a swig of her "coffee". "Why should I?" asked the arrogant Marisa, tossing her hair off her shoulder with a sly smile. "Warning one, if you get a second warning you're in the focus room!" Ms. Daemon was ready to cut Marisa's throat out with a key, but was previously suspended for her cruel acts of "discipline" so she had to patiently wait for Marisa to make one more mistake, in order for her to fully inflict the mental torture she was all to well acquainted with. Ms. Daemon was a ...

  • The Godly Family Of Colonial Massachusetts - 305 words
    "The Godly Family Of Colonial Massachusetts" "The Godly Family of Colonial Massachusetts" Puritans didn't really think of their family as a private household, but as an essential part of society. Many communities tied families to each other by birth or marriage. The communities of the seventeenth-century, being small, had many marriages and remarriages that created a kinship, which was a difficult to understand. In-laws and distant cousins were known as brothers, sister, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, and cousins. This relationship was very important in the social, economic life of the community, because it helped to develop trading networks and investments. Partnerships within families we ...

  • A Dangerous Game Of Love - 1,307 words
    A Dangerous Game Of Love Would you like to play a game? This game involves passion, deceit, lies, and love. I viewed two movies that share the same painful theme; Cruel Intentions and Dangerous Liaisons. They both bring to life a set of characters that play with emotions like they are nothing but a mere child's game. I chose to introduce you to the infamous Viconte Valmont and the spoiled Sebastian Valmont. Not only are their names similar, but so were their motives. I liked Sebastian more because of his clench on reality. He portrayed a villain well, but at the same time proved that he too could have feelings. Viconte had feelings also, but it was much harder for him to reveal it. I felt a ...

  • A Few Greek Gods - 1,919 words
    A Few Greek Gods subject = History 9th grade title = A Few Greek Gods The Ancient Greeks believed in a series of myths which explained nature, set up a moral code for the people, and were just folk lore of the people. In this paper, the beginnings of myths, the Greek gods themselves, and several myths concerning morals, nature, and old lore of the Ancients will be discussed. Because the myths and details about the gods were passed along by word of mouth, some myths or gods might be interchanged or different. The Greek myths started as folk lore until it began to explain nature and storytellers integrated a moral code into the myths. Many myths started out as fairy tales. As new and more effi ...

  • A Modest Proposal By Swift - 1,196 words
    A Modest Proposal By Swift A Modest Proposal was a satirical essay written by Jonathan Swift depicting the horrific conditions of Ireland and the lives of the Irish people in 1729. The author portrays and attacks the cruel and unjust oppression of Ireland by its oppressor, the mighty English and ridicules the Irish people at the same time. However, Swift's opposition is indirectly presented. Jonathan Swift is able to do so by using the persona, irony, and wit in order to expose the remarkable corruption and degradation of the Irish people, and at the same time present them with practicable solutions to their unscrupulous and pathetic lives. The author uses a satire to accomplish his objectiv ...
