Introduction

Introduction
"Real Steel" imagines a near future when human boxers have been replaced by robots. Matches between small fighting robot machines are popular enough to be on television, but in "Real Steel," these robots are towering, computer-controlled machines with nimble footwork and instinctive balance. (In the real world, 'bots can be rendered helpless on their backs, like turtles.) Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who is now hanging onto the fringes of the fight game as the owner-operator of a ramshackle robot he tours with. It's no match for the competition, and when the desperate Charlie replaces it with another battered veteran, it can't even outfight a real bull.If the movie were all robot fights it might be as unbearable as well, a Transformers title. Drama enters in the person of Charlie's son, Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo), a smart, resilient pre-teen who, like all kids, seems to have been genetically programmed to understand computers, video games and all allied fields. Charlie is a very bad absent father, and as played by Hugh Jackman, he is actually mean toward his boy. Charlie's sister (Hope Davis) and her husband (James Rebhorn) plan to adopt the boy, but in a complicated arrangement, Charlie first has to take care of Max for a summer.This Max is some kid. He loves robots. During a scouting expedition in a 'bot junk yard, he comes upon an ancient training robot named Atom literally covered in mud and convinces his dad this relic still has fighting potential. Amazingly, it hasn't entirely rusted away, and father and son rehab it and teach it some new tricks. One of its abilities is a "mirror mode," which allows it to mimic the motions of its controller. Since Charlie is a has-been boxer, Max has faith that Atom can win as his dad's avatar.All of course leads up to a big match with a fearsome juggernaut named Zeus. To my amazement, this fight scene is as entertaining and involving as most human fights, and the off-screen story (involving Zeus' odious owners) adds interest. It's hard to hate a robot, but not its owners."Real Steel" is a real movie. It has characters, it matters who they are, it makes sense of its action, it has a compelling plot. This is the sort of movie.

CHAPTER (2)
Character & The Plot

Cast (Character)

• Dakota Goyo as Max Kenton
• Evangeline Lilly as Bailey Tallet
• Anthony Mackie as Finn
• Olga Fonda as Farra Lemkova
• Karl Yune as Tak Mashido

The Plot
In 2020, human boxers have been replaced by robots. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman), a former boxer, owns the robot 'Ambush', but loses it to a bull belonging to promoter Ricky (Kevin Durand). There, Max's wealthy aunt Debra (Hope Davis) and her husband Marvin (James Rebhorn) request full custody, which Charlie concedes for $100,000, half in advance, on the condition that Charlie retains Max for three months. Thereupon, Charlie and Max, and Bailey Tallet (Evangeline Lilly), the daughter of Charlie's boxing coach, acquire the once-famous robot 'Noisy Boy' and arrange a fight, in which Noisy Boy is destroyed. Max convinces Charlie to train Atom, resulting in a series of victories culminating upon national champion 'Twin Cities'. Elated by victory, Max challenges global champion 'Zeus'. Immediately, Ricky and two henchmen attack and rob Charlie, who thereupon returns Max to his aunt; but persuaded by Bailey, Charlie arranges the challenge offered by Max and convinces Debra to allow Max to witness the fight. Ricky bets $100,000 that Atom will not last the first round against Zeus, but loses his bet and is cornered by the fight's bookmakers. In the penultimate round, Atom's vocal controls are damaged, whereupon Charlie guides the robot through his mimetic powers to overwhelm the weakened Zeus; but is unable to win within allotted time. Zeus is declared the winner by number of blows inflicted; but the near-defeat leaves the Zeus team humiliated, and Atom is labeled the "People's Champion".

CHAPTER (3)
Moral of The Movie

Moral of the Movie

It’s been many years since the last time I went to movie. This time I watched Real Steel, a very good movie, I think. It’s not only a robot movie, but filled in with many philosophy. Well, the robots are cool too.
Here are my thoughts after watching it:
1. If you’re a father, no matter how ‘fail’ you think you are, your kids will always want you to be their hero. They want to be proud of you. They ARE proud of you.
2. If you’re a kid, you know you have a father. No matter how ‘bad’ you think he is, he is your father. When you say - or even if you only think - that you are proud of him, it’ll make him a better man.
3. No matter how good you build a robot, you are the builder. The robot will not outsmart you as a human.
4. That’s because we’re not God. We can’t create human.
5. Think before you do, and think about what you did.
6. Some things in this world is worth a 1200 miles travelling.
7. Never forget who saved you.
8. It’s not the size that matters.
Being a father, I think lesson number one is the most important. It can give you strength when you ‘fight’ for your family.
One more thing, my emotion was moved with every Atom’s fights (Atom is the hero robot, he has human-like fighting style and he can dance too!). If you have teenagers, go watch the movie together. It’s worth your time and money. If you don’t have, it’s still worth it.

Production

Real Steel is directed by Shawn Levy and is based on Richard Matheson's 1956 short story "Steel." The film was produced by DreamWorks Pictures, Reliance Entertainment, 21 Laps, and Montford/Murphy Productions. The original screenplay was written by Dan Gilroy and was purchased by DreamWorks for $850,000 in 2003 or 2005 (sources differ). The project was one of 17 that DreamWorks took from Paramount Pictures when they split in 2008. Director Peter Berg expressed interest in the project in mid-2009 but went no further. Levy was attached to the project in September 2009, and Jackman was cast in the starring role in November for a $9 million fee. In the same month, Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider at DreamWorks greenlit the project. Les Bohem and Jeremy Leven had worked on Gilroy's screenplay, but in 2009 John Gatins was working on a new draft. When Levy joined the project, he worked with Gatins to revise the screenplay, spending a total of six weeks fine-tuning the script. Advertising company FIVE33 did a two-hundred page "bible" about robot boxing. Levy said he was invited by Spielberg and Snider while finishing Date Night, and while the director initially considered Real Steel to have "a crazy premise," he accepted after reading the script and feeling it could be "a really humanistic sports drama." Real Steel had a production budget of $110 million. Levy chose to set the film in state fairs and other "old-fashioned" Americana settings that would exude nostalgia and create a warm tone for the film's father-son story. There was also an attempt for the scenery to blend in new and old technology. Filming began in June 2010, and ended by October 15, 2010. Locations include areas around Detroit, Michigan, and across the state, including at the Renaissance Center, the Cobo Arena,the Detroit Fire Department headquarters, the Russell Industrial Center, the Ingham County Courthouse in Mason, Michigan, the former Belle Isle Zoo, and the Highland Park Ford Plant. Jason Matthews of Legacy Effects, successor to Stan Winston Studios, was hired to turn production designer Tom Meyer's robot designs into practical animatronics props. Atom has RC [radio-controlled] hands as well." According to Jackman, executive producer Spielberg "actually said to Shawn, 'You should really have real elements where you can.' Basically if they're not walking or fighting, that's a real robot." Levy added that Spielberg gave the example of Jurassic Park, where Winston's animatronics dinosaurs "got a better performance from the actors, as they were seeing something real, and gave the visual effects team an idea of what it would look like In Atom's case, it tried to have a more humanizing design to be an "everyman" who could attract the audience's sympathy and serve as a proxy to the viewer, with a fencing mask that Meyer explained served to show "his identity was a bit hidden, so you have to work harder to get to see him."Executive producer Robert Zemeckis added that the mask "became a screen so we can project what we want on Atom's face. For scenes when computer-generated robots brawl, "simulcam" motion capture technology, developed for the film Avatar, was used. As Levy described the process, "You're not only capturing the fighting of live human fighters, but you're able to take that and see it converted to robots on a screen instantaneously.Boxing hall-of-famer Sugar Ray Leonard was an adviser for these scenes and gave Jackman boxing lessons so his moves would be more natural.
Marketing

DreamWorks released the first trailer for Real Steel in December 2010. In May 2011, the studio released a second trailer. While the film features boxing robots, Levy said he wanted to show in the trailer "the father-son drama, the emotion Americana of it". He said, "We are very much the robo-boxing movie, but that's one piece of a broader spectrum." In addition to marketing trailers and posters, DreamWorks enlisted the British advertising company Five33 to build large physical displays representing the film as it had done for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The studio also collaborated with Virgin America to name one of their Airbus A320s after the film, and one of the film's robots is pictured on its fuselage. On September 19, Jackman appeared on the weekly sports entertainment program WWE Raw to promote the film. In addition to Jackman making an appearance on the show, WWE named Crystal Method's "Make Some Noise" from the film's soundtrack as the official theme song for their returning PPV, Vengeance. Jakks Pacific released a toy line with action figures based on Atom, Zeus, Noisy Boy, Midas and Twin Cities. The company has also released a one-on-one, playset fighting game with robots in a ring. Jump Games released a fighting videogame based on the film for Android and iOS devices, and Yuke's has made a game for home consoles.

Theatrical Release

Real Steel had its world premiere on September 6, 2011, in Paris at the Le Grand Rex. The film had its United States premiere on October 2, 2011, in Los Angeles at the Gibson Amphitheatre. It was commercially released in Australia on October 6, 2011, followed by the United States and Canada on October 7, 2011. For the U.S. release, it was originally scheduled for release on November 18, 2011, but it was moved earlier to avoid competition with the first part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The film was released in 3,440 theaters in the United States and Canada, including 270 IMAX screenings. There will also be over 100 IMAX screenings in territories outside the United States and Canada, with 62 screening on October 7.

Home Media

The film was released on DVD, Blu-ray, and both high-definition and standard-definition digital download on January 24, 2012, from Touchstone Home Entertainment. Additional material includes Disney Second Screen; deleted and extended scenes with introductions by director Levy; and a profile of film consultant Sugar Ray Leonard.

Critical reaction

Real Steel received mixed to positive reviews from critics, with the aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes listing 60% of 210 critics giving a positive review, with a rating average of 5.9 out of 10. The website's consensus is, "Silly premise notwithstanding, this is a well-made Hollywood movie: Thrilling and exciting action with just enough characterization." Meteoritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, gives the film a rating score of 56, based on 34 reviews. Cinema Score polls reported that the average grade moviegoers gave the film was an A on an A plus to F scale.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times rated the film three out of four stars, saying, "Real Steel is a real movie. It has characters, it matters who they are, it makes sense of its action, it has a compelling plot. Sometimes you go into a movie with low expectations and are pleasantly surprised." Conversely, Claudia Puig of USA Today said that, "Though the premise of fighting robots does seem a plausible and intriguing extension of the contemporary WWE world, Real Steel is hampered by leaden, clichéd moments in which a stubborn boy teaches his childish father a valuable lesson." Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly gave the film an A-, saying director Levy "makes good use of his specialized skill in blending people and computer-made imaginary things into one lively, emotionally satisfying story". James White of the UK magazine Empire gave the film 3 of 5 stars. It's not quite in Balboa's weight class, but Real Steel at least has some heft. There's barely a story beat among the beat-downs that you won't expect, and sometimes the saccharine gets in the way of the spectacle, but on the whole this is enjoyable family entertainment."
Box Office

Real Steel earned $85,468,508 in North America, and $213,800,000 in other territories, for a worldwide total of $299,268,508. It had a worldwide opening of $49.4 million. In North America, it topped the box office with $8.5 million on its opening day and $27.3 million in total on its opening weekend, claiming the number one spot, ahead of the other new nationwide release (The Ides of March) and all holdovers. It managed first-place debuts in 11 countries including Hugh Jackman's native Australia ($4.2 million).

Soundtrack
Real Steel soundtrack consists of 13 tracks featuring artists including Tom Morello, Eminem, Royce da 5'9" (Bad Meets Evil), Yelawolf, 50 Cent, Limp Bizkit and Foo Fighters. Levy, a fan of The Crystal Method, invited that duo to contribute to the soundtrack; they recorded two new songs for it after viewing a rough cut of the film. The score album of "Real Steel: Original Motion Picture Score" consists of 19 tracks composed by Danny Elfman; released November 1, 2011, in the US. Levy considered Elfman one of the few composers who could do a score similar to that of the Rocky franchise, alternating guitar-based ambient music and songs with a full orchestra. All music composed by Danny Elfman.

Sequel

In April 2011, DreamWorks announced it was developing a sequel, and that John Gatins, who wrote the screenplay for the first film, was hired to script the second. Touchstone Pictures, which distributed the first, will co-produce and co-finance, with DreamWorks, and distribute the film. Director Shawn Levy said in September 2011 a sequel depended on the success of the first film and that he would also direct it. The key actors—Jackman, Lilly, and Goyo—would reprise their roles if the studio proceeded with a sequel, though the production schedule would need to match Jackman's crowded schedule.

CHAPTER (5)
Picture Details

Picture

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Picture

Hugh Jackman as (Charles 'Charlie' Kenton) he plays a retired boxer that now use a robot to fight for him. and the kid in this movie looks super, but it might be decent… or something that will get vaporized 50 years from now….. Picture

Max is less than thrilled about going to live with his dad, a man he hardly knows. Charlie begrudgingly takes his son on the road. After Charlie’s latest robot is destroyed, the pair goes to a junkyard in search of spare parts, only to uncover an older generation sparring bot named Atom buried in the wreckage. While Charlie believes Atom is useless, Max convinces him otherwise. Like a futuristic Rocky, Atom ends up excelling in the ring, leading to a title shot against the seemingly invincible World Robot Boxing champion, Zeus.

Picture

In this Movie .Max is a smart kid and understands that he was kind just slightly sold. He is, however, a big fan of the fighting bots, and convinces Charlie to let him tag along to watch him compete in robotic boxing events. Charlie grudgingly accedes. Following a disastrous fight they end up at a robotic junk yard, scavenging for pieces to try and put together a new robot, when Max discovers Atom.

CHAPTER (6)
The good side And the bad side of this movie

The Good sides of this movie:
Every one absolutely loved this movie and would definitely go see it again! And again!!! It related to the movie rocky in a lot of ways too and was very entertaining. the violence wasnt too intense for a boxing movie, but there was a part where Charlie(Hugh Jackman) is beat up by 3 other characters. the rest of the violence is just boxing robots, as expected., there were scenes with girls in skimpy outfits and also a kissing scene. the consumerism throughout the movie was mostly ads in the arenas and other places you would expect ads to be. and though there are a few bad role models, there are also plenty of good role models and important lessons with positive messages. overall, Every one think that this is a great movie for male & kids. the ages of the kids are 18 and up.

The bad sides of this movie: the movie have done with a little less of the heartwarming father-son story, or at least a less predictable arc for it — once the characters and the situation are established, anyone who’s seen more than 20 films in their lifetime could probably accurately map out the relationship’s entire plotline And there were some words used like s***, a**, and b***h even by the 11 year old and a couple scenes with alcohol Those are not right for the movie…so that’s why those things in this movie Are the bad sides ..

CHAPTER (7) CONCLUSION

CONCLUSION :
Real Steel is 2011 American science fiction sports drama film starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo, co-produced and directed by Shawn Levy and released by DreamWorks Pictures based on the 1956 short story "Steel" by Richard Matheson, though screenwriter John Gatins placed the film in U.S. state fairs and other "old-fashioned" Americana settings. Real Steel was in development for several years before production began on June 11, 2010. Filming took place primarily in the U.S. state of Michigan. Animatronic robots were built for the film, and motion capture technology was used to depict the brawling of computer-generated robots and animatronics. Real Steel was publicly released in Australia on October 6, 2011, and in the United States and Canada on October 7, 2011, to mixed reviews and grossed $295 million at the box office. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects at the 84th Academy Awards.…...

English Assignment - the American Dream

...1. Give an outline of how the American Dream is interpreted in texts 2, 3 and 4 Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls lessons from 25 years as a U.S. citizen – learn English, Participate in Politics and Give Back. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s text focuses on immigrants that came to America, to achieve ”The American Dream”. The American Dream from Arnold’s view is not about what you can acquire from America, as an immigrant, but what you can do to give something back. His suggestions for giving something back is to first learn the English language, then contribute to the political course and at last help the community by donating, volunteering, mentoring a child, participating in a program, helping the less fortunate, doing community service, etc. He rounds up by saying: “There is no second-tier citizenship. You are an American, period. With hard work, learning English and getting involved, there is no limit on what you can achieve” Whose American Dream is it, anyway? Anya Kamenetz’s article primarily emphasizes the economic side of the American Dream. The main problem she proposes is that the Americans are a lot more unenthusiastic about their lives now, then at any time in the past 50 years, probably because of the deteriorating economy and the high expenses for supply of essential resources. One question that was raised in the article is if there’s a link between wealth and happiness. Anya refers to researcher Daniel Gilbert who discovered that once an average person earns more......

English 215 Assignment 1

...English 215: Research and Writing Assignment 1: Research Topics With Explanation Professor Reagan January 16, 2013 There were many research topics that caught my attention, so choosing was a little difficult for me. The first topic I chose is “Should regulations be changed regarding genetically altering plants and/or animals”. This topic is a very serious matter to me, and I am taking it in the context that it is regarding genetically modified plants and animals that were intended to be used for food. I am a vegetarian and I do believe we all have the right to know what we are consuming. Genetically modified food can be dangerous, and by the time we find out how dangerous, it may be too late. The audience for this topic would be anyone who is health conscious, interested in animal rights, or just interested in knowing the truth about what they are really consuming. Two credible sources I would use to write my paper would be the Forbes article (http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2012/12/07/what-you-need-to-know-about-gm-foods-is-half-the-story/) and the Human Genome Project Information site (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/gmfood.shtml) My preliminary thesis statement would be: “With such a strong focus lately in obesity and calorie consumption, it seems as if many people are becoming more aware of their health and eating habits.

...Ch r i s t i n e Ro e ll Intercultural Training with Films ilms are a great medium to use not only to practice English, but also to facilitate intercultural learning. Today English is a global language spoken by people from many countries and cultural backgrounds. Since culture greatly impacts communication, it is helpful for teachers to introduce lessons and activities that reveal how different dialects, forms of address, customs, taboos, and other cultural elements influence interaction among different groups. Numerous films contain excellent examples of intercultural communication and are highly useful resources for teachers. Additional reasons for teachers to incorporate films in class and encourage their students to watch movies in English include: • Films combine pleasure and learning by telling a story in a way that captures and holds the viewer’s interest. • Films simultaneously address different senses and cognitive channels. For example, spoken language is supported by visual elements that make it easier for students to understand the dialogues and the plot. • Students are exposed to the way people actually speak. 2 2010 N u m b e r F • Films involve the viewers, appeal to their feelings, and help them empathize with the protagonists. • DVDs usually come with subtitles in English, which facilitates understanding and improves reading skills.

... HI18 - C July 1, 2013 _____________________________________________________________________________________ To many of us, history is simply a class you take to be able to learn and memorize certain dates, events and people that have tremendous significance to a country, nation or even community. If you view it this way, you are missing the whole point of history. There is more to the objectivity of history. The very essence of history is that it leaves a trace of emotion by these so called significant events in one’s and/or other people’s lives – much like what Erin did in the movie, Freedom Writers. Erin is one of the rare kind of teachers that teach you more than what the curriculum offers. More than just a teacher-student relationship, she has offered and developed friendship, trust and hope for the students of Room 203 and more importantly, bridged the gap among her students that has been constraining their way of interacting with each another. Erin’s first encounter with her class did not seem to be what she expected at all. There were no signs of respect for anyone in the room as the students formed cliques, isolated themselves from those who belonged to another race or gang and continued chitchatting despite the presence of their teacher. Nevertheless, Erin put up with this kind of attitude from her students and strived to teach them the best way she could – through innovation. She planned field trips, inspiring talks by Holocaust survivors, Anne Frank’s......

...describe the message of the speech pretty well. What the quote ultimately means is that you have to do something because you want to do it, not because of what it might bring you. This also seems to be the overall theme of the speech. You shouldn’t do something just to get the achievement it gives but you should do it to enjoy the challenge it brings. This referrers to all the people taking long educations and boring jobs just to make money but you should do what you love enjoy the experience of doing it. The things you’ve experienced makes you the person you are and McCullough stresses the point that you’re not the material possessions you own.

Matches between small fighting robot machines are popular enough to be on television, but in "Real Steel," these robots are towering, computer-controlled machines with nimble footwork and instinctive balance. (In the real world, 'bots can be rendered helpless on their backs, like turtles.) Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who is now hanging onto the fringes of the fight game as the owner-operator of a ramshackle robot he tours with. It's no match for the competition, and when the desperate Charlie replaces it with another battered veteran, it can't even outfight a real bull.If the movie were all robot fights it might be as unbearable as well, a Transformers title. Drama enters in the person of Charlie's son, Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo), a smart, resilient pre-teen who, like all kids, seems to have been genetically programmed to understand computers, video games and all allied fields. Charlie is a very bad absent father, and as played by Hugh Jackman, he is actually mean toward his......

Though it is a time consuming item to make, the recipe is fairly simple and the finished product, a succulent tasty Pork Shoulder, is very much worth the wait. Below I will advise of the preparation techniques and ingredients needed to make this mouth watering dish. This recipe will serve approximately 8 people.

English 115 Assignment 1

...Vontesch Barnes “On Becoming a Writer” Strayer University – English 115 Assignment 1 “On Becoming a Writer” Russell Baker “On Becoming a Writer” conveyed how he had a dream to become a writer. The main point that I took from this passage was that things happen unexpectantly. If you have a dream entertain it, because you never know where your pursuit will lead you. Russell looked at writing as something that was done by only the rich. He never imagined that becoming a writer could be a career that he could potentially get paid from. What I took from this was that he treated writing as a hobby or something liked he liked to do. Although writing was Russell’s dream, he still only thought of it as an Interest until he met Mr. Fleagle. It seemed that even though he had not been taught by Mr. Fleagle, he already had a preset judgement of how he was going to be. “He was said to be stuffy, dull, and hopelessly out of date. To me he looked to be sixty or seventy and prim to a fault”. One point I got from this was that the answers to life’s mysteries, even your dreams may come in a form you wouldn’t expect. Russell didn’t like English, the assignments or writing papers for the class in general. After some time in Mr. Fleagle’s class he was given an assignment called “What I did on My Summer Vacation”. This is the assignment that eventually lead him to discover his passion for writing. Instead he wrote a paper titled “The Art of Eating Spaghetti”. Russell pulled from a......

English Comp Movie Review

...English 101 Fifth Graded Assignment Matthew C. Hinkle User ID: HI5247197 University of Management and Technology 18 August 2015 I have an issue with Director Breck Eisner’s adaptation of Clive Cussler’s book Sahara. In most of Clive Cussler’s books, the opening of the book sets up the story later on, the beginning story is usually a major part of the plot development. Those who have read his books understand this omission, it was largely left out and replaced with the director’s backstory. In the original movie the story of Kitty Mannock, a pilot who crashes into the desert during a record attempt in 1931 sets up the book, and later in the book when two of the characters come upon the crash, it makes sense, in the movie however they just find the plane, use the plane and the story is never told, something those who like Clive Cussler’s books enjoy immensely. Overall, I enjoyed both the movie and the book, though there were issues those who are Clive Cussler fans would catch right away, it was exciting to see one of the books come to life on the big screen. I have been a Clive Cussler fan for years, though this will probably be the only one to become a movie I was not completely disappointed. I enjoyed the movie, plenty of excitement, plot changes, drama, civil war history references and a little morality thrown in...

English 103 Essay 1 Assignment

...English 103 Essay 1 Assignment Argument: Hospital statistics regarding people who go to the emergency room after rollerskating accidents indicate the need for more protective equipment.  Within this group of people, 75 percent of those who had accidents in streets or parking lots were not wearing any protective clothing (helmets, knee pads, etc.) or any light-reflecting material (clip-on lights, glow-in-the-dark wrist pads, etc.).  Clearly, these statistics indicate that by investing in high-quality protective gear and reflective equipment, rollerskaters will greatly reduce their risk of being severely injured in an accident. Writing Task: How well reasoned and convincing is this argument?  In explaining your point of view, be sure to analyze the conclusion, the line of reasoning, and the use of evidence in the argument.  Also discuss what, if anything, would make the argument more sound and persuasive or would help readers better evaluate its conclusion. 2-3 pages typed, double-spaced Use Times New Roman 12 point font, 1” margins. Submit your essay to Turnitin.com and print out the Originality Report to bring to class on Monday (if possible) or Wednesday (at the latest). Also bring in two copies of your final draft to class: one for me; one for peer review. I will put the essay assignment and peer review sheet on MyGateway. I think that looking over the peer review sheet will give you some good ideas as to how to write your essay. Hints: • The key to this......

A Movie

...GEC1C26: Understanding East Asian Cinema With English Writing Requirements Dr.William Cheung Film Review Paper | |Student Name: | | | |Student ID: | | | |Group ID: | | | |Date: | | Introduction After visiting the "Studio Ghibli Layout Design" exhibition in Hong Kong Heritage Museum, I was shocked by the original layout sketches and the fine storytelling. The 1300 layouts of films contain the cut of camera work, camera speed and space relation between characters and backgrounds; it gives me an insight of the process of animation making. Hence, I would like to comprehend more about the film produced by animation powerhouse-Studio Ghibli, especially the masterpiece-“Spirited Away”, which helps to promote Japanese animation to worldwide audience. “Spirited Away” is an animated film written and directed by the director of Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki (Cavallaro 2004) in 2001, which have won awards in a number of international film festivals,......
