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 guardian, She realized that to be able to teach her students, she must first understand who they are and what they are going through to be able to get her point across. She started it with the line game that highlighted the fact that whether Latino, Cambodian, black or white, they all share something similar. They are not really as different as they think they are with each other and therefore…...

...An Analysis on Ek Ruka Huwa Faisala from Communication Perspective Submitted to: Course Instructor Managerial Communication Apex College Submitted by: Laxman Aryal Roll no. 8 Manikkya Apex College 2012 Ek Ruka Hua Faisala is a Bollywood movie directed by Basu Chatterjee inspired from Hollywood film 12 Angry Men. We the student of MBA are shown this movie to learn some lesson of Managerial Communication. Altthough this is a movie about different organizational behavior, it also gives a strong example of effective communication. This is a movie about 19 year old boy who was a suspect for murder of his father. There was a committee of 12 people assigned to decide whether boy was culprit or not. All 12 jurors must agree whether a young man is guilty or not of murdering his father. In this movie we observe the entire decision making process. Where each individual had different perception and different behavior in particular situation. Their personal opinion leads them to one wrong decision first but later on with just one leading, convincing, neutral and practical individual, they were able to think on the other side of the case and finally they reached to right conclusion. A switch from 11-1 to 0-12 is very rare in real life juries, but Ek Ruka Hua Faisla very convincingly depicts the switch. It achieves this by staying true to the realities of group dynamics through effective and proper communication. Once the objective of the group is established, they start...

Movie

...Metaphor for Telling It has been countless years since I have watched a movie about Native Americans, and even longer since I have witnessed a decent one. Most films on the subject of the Native American people are often set in the past and are habitually on the subject of brave Indian warriors. I had never viewed a Native American motion picture filmed in a present day setting, dealing with contemporary issues until I watched Smoke Signals. In the movie Smoke Signals, co-producer and scriptwriter Sherman Alexie uses unexpected humor, numerous significant flashbacks, and modernized Native American storytelling traditions to best narrate his story and the historical plight of Native Americans. First of all, Alexie employs wit by mocking stereotypical reservation life, the frequently biased film industry, and even his own people, the Native Americans. From the opening scene as tribal meteorologist and traffic reporter Lester Falls Apart covers his seemingly uneventful daily traffic report, as he has for the last twenty-six years, from the rooftop of his broken down KREZ van, we are introduced to the odd and amusing way of life on the “rez.” In another scene, Victor and Thomas are embarking on their solemn journey and are offered a ride by Thelma and Lucy driving down the road in reverse; again, it is suggested that they exist in a somewhat backwards nation. In addition, Alexie is quick to taunt the movie industry by belittling white cowboy heroes; he even goes so far......

...Sami Masri Dr. Knapp HUM 160-003 2/23/10 Assignment 2 In the beginning of this scene there are several effects that are used to magnetically drawthe viewer into the scenario. The sound effects to this scene are defining because there is practically no sound here except for a very tinny, eerie and foreboding wind sound. This shows the importance of Leonides’s decision and how much is at stake upon it. The fate of Sparta rests upon this decision. It is the most dramatic moment in the movie and the one with the most tension. Will the freedom and individuality of the Greeks be left intact? Or will he sell Sparta out to the Persian army? If he chooses for the Greeks, all the warriors will surely perish, if he chooses to join with Zurkzies, all freedom and individuality will be lost. The camera zooms in on Leonides face at eye level and the viewer is immediately drawn to his eyes. You can see the intensity of the moment through his gleaming eyes as if he is deep in thought. The scene then changes to a childhood flashback. He is shown during his warrior training preparedto fight a wolf. This is almost cryptic for Leonides as it could be construed as his life flashing before him,before he sacrifices his life. The camera then looks downward at Leonides as he looks up to the sky in search of the heavens and sees two seagulls circling around his warriors. This can again be construed as foreshadowing the fate of the Spartans. The camera view snaps to a close up of......

These films are often unsettling and rely on scaring the audience through a portrayal of their worst fears and nightmares. Horror films usually center on the arrival of an evil force, person, or event. Horror film may become as an adventures to some people. This is because the film may play with the viewer emotions.

The movie had everything need to make it a very interesting for the writing; it had agents, lawyers, judges, and criminals. The story was about these two federal agents that once was working for the president as his bodyguards, but one of the agents was getting close to his retirement so they were demoted to a lower job, so he would not have to put his life in danger before he retire. So the agents were put on a case to catch a highly professional counterfeit maker, and this guy did his job very well to where it looks just like the 20 dollar bills, counterfeit making was easy in the 70’s and 80’s due to the making of the bill today as we call them big faces, and due to the special printing paper it’s kind of hard but it is someone still able to make counterfeit money.

...be a major topic in life, coming-of-age will be as well. For centuries, teens have been misunderstood by their families. They don't understand our thought process or why we even thought that way in the first place. That's when great writers and great producers came together to make films surrounding that. The coming-of-age films were most popular in the 80s--coincidentally while the fashion was also very out there and misunderstood. Personally, a movie that stood out the most in the Generation X era, was American Pie. Though it was very comedic, it's very relatable. The film focused on a group of teenage boys attempting to lose their innocence, but also shows the main character's parents constantly trying to "fix" him. As a viewer, you are immediately on the main character's side. Throughout the movie, his father is always trying to piece in on his life. The father feels that he knows exactly what the teen is experiencing because of him unexpectedly walking in on an unusual sexual act the teen was committing. Throughout the movie, he is giving him tips on sex and tries to "rectify" his "situation," when nothing the father is offering is necessary. The main character was trying to have actual sex and since he had a hard time doing so, at times, he'd use inanimate objects in replace of an actual human being. As teens "came of age," based off of previous experience, parents understood that that was the time that they should have "the talk." Realistically, that represented......
