Movie Title: After the Dark
Starring: Bonnie Wright, Maia Mitchell, James D'Arcy
Director: John Huddles
Writer: John Huddles
Summary: At an international school in Jakarta, a philosophy teacher challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to choose which ten of them would take shelter underground and reboot the human race in the event of a nuclear apocalypse. In one scene, ten off the students tried to escape the nuclear blast in a jeep but were taken out by the nuclear blast winds.
Physics Summary: With being that close to an atomic bomb, first they would have been blinded; especially with nonstop atomic bombs being detonated all around them. Second, they would have been taken out by the pressure waves long before the blast winds and debris. It took 8 seconds from the time the bomb went off, to the students being hit by the nuclear blast winds. With blast winds from atomic bombs being around the speed of sound, the nuclear blast winds are traveling at about 300 m/s for 8 seconds. Meaning that the blast and killing point only had a displacement of 2.4 km. Which is between the “Severe Damage” and the “Moderate Damage” rings for a nuclear blast.
∆x=∆v∆t
∆x=300m/s8s=2400m

Conclusion: In this scene, they students die from a nuclear blast wind, that flips and destroys there vehicle. However, this would happen, but not until the students would have been blinded by the light energy emitted from the blast that would have slowed them down from driving or made them stop entirely. Next would have been the Gama rays that completely shredded every single molecule in its path before any nuclear blast winds could in come in contact with them or the vehicle. This shows that the physics and logic behind these scenes of nuclear blasts are not as accurate nor as realistic as the tests that the United States and other countries have down or used in…...

The Dark Knight Movie

...The Dark knight After watching and reviewing American films in this class, it is my turn to submit my favorite movies and justify their importance in the film industry. Out of all the movies I have seen, the only one that had emotional impact with me was the 2008 film, Batman – The Dark Knight. The movie shows the dangerous impact of criminals in Gotham city and how to deal with it. Batman, Bruce Wayne was played by (Christian Bale). Bruce with out the batman suit is a rich and carless guy who has one goal in life “Girls”. However, the real Batman is very controversy to this, he acts as an uncovered honor hero who wants to protect Gotham city from criminals, especially the Joker (Heath Ledger). The joker has nothing important in his life. Everything is worthless he killed for only one purpose, fun. The joker started in the movie by interrupt a group of criminals who are scared by the new Gotham’s hero, Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) the district attorney who is aiming to be the next governor, and if he reduces the amount of crimes in Gotham city he may have a better chance to be the next governor. However, after an incident made by the Joker Harvey’s face was burned, also his mind too was burned with criminal thoughts. The Batman and lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) decided to cover Harvey’s last attempts as a criminal and let him die with an honor. In addition, Harvey and Bruce both have some emotion to Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal). The movie shows great fights between......

She sent a silent final prayers to her fallen comrades, as she raced down to the last hallway. Hoping she made it time, to save her him. "Would you all just shut the hell up, I can't hear myself think with all your bitching," a thick french accent barked. "Put that table and chairs up as a barricade, and the rest of you help tend to the injured” he commanded biting the end of his cigarette. The men shut up immediately and got to work. "captain here these are the only silver holy bullets we have left." The lieutenant chief said as he handed the magazine over to the french captain. "Men we are the only line of defence left, we must protect this mansion, and keep mignonette safe at all costs, if she dies we might as well all go to hell”, understand. the captain commanded.

Physics Movie Review

...Movie Title: Batman (1989) Starring: Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Kim Basinger, Robert Wuhl, Pat Hingle, Billy Dee Williams Directed by: Tim Burton Written by: Bob Kane, Sam Hamm, Warren Skaaren Summary: This movie is a popular superhero film that was originally based on the comic book series. Because of Gotham City’s high level of criminal activity lately, the mayor has many fears for the city on its 200th anniversary so the mayor has District Attorney and Commissioner to protect the city. With the so called protection, the city is still not safe and becomes even more dangerous, that is until the almighty Dark Knight arrives to the rescue. The Dark Knight has to initially frighten the criminals with just his look and costumes. Batman is born. While Batman defeats the criminals, Vicky Vale, a journalist, wants to uncover the identity of the mysterious hero. Then a psychotic clown criminal takes over the city. Batman is there to defeat this evil menace. Summary of Physics: In this scene of the movie, Batman’s heroic actions with Vicky Vale makes the audience question the accuracy of physics in this movie. Batman and Vale fall from Gotham City’s high and gloomy bell tower. As they fall from high sky above, Batman accurately aims at a gargoyle on the tower with his hook shooter thingy. This causes Batman and Vale to stop falling with a strong jerk on the wire or rope or whatever you call it. Let’s bring Isaac Newton into this so see if this scene in Batman is......

Dark Matter

...What is Dark Matter? The Oxford dictionary defines dark matter as a non-luminous material which assumed to exist in space. But what does this mean? If dark matter is non luminous how do we know it’s there? How can we detect it? These are the kind of questions I will try to answer in this short article. Discovery: In the mid to late 19th century scientists observed that stars orbiting nearby galaxies were rotating faster than expected. The speed calculated indicated that the gravity created by them could not contain the matter within the stars. Therefore meaning that the stars should have been ripped apart from their own gravity. This indicated that there could be some other form of matter that is acting within the galaxy; which could have certain properties that explain the larger amount of gravity e.g. more massive matter. Properties of Dark Matter: Figure 1 Figure 1 Dark matter is hard to “get your head” around as scientists say that you can’t see it; then how can it exist? Dark matter is said to be “non-luminous”, therefore it does not absorb, give off or reflect light, which means we cannot observe the existence of Dark Matter (But we could detect it: See section on “Detection”). Detection: Although we cannot see Dark Matter it supposedly makes up 22% of the universe, compared to 4% of normal matter (See Figure 1). The evidence of how dark matter could exist is from experiments held in particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. As Dark......

The Dark Knight

...The Dark Knight came out in 2008, when George W. Bush was President, so I was 14 at the time and Emily was 12. I remember going to the theater the day it came out because I was never more excited for a movie. I have been a fan of the Batman franchise since I was a kid; my older sister and I would constantly watch the Batman VHS's that we had until they were too scratched up from use. Emily watched the film with all of her boy cousins because they wanted her to see it with them. I was so intrigued to see a new interpretation of an already golden performance by Nicholson, and since this role was different than anything Heath Ledger had done before, I knew it was going to be either incredible or awful. Emily noted that the powerful emotions between the characters and the brooding cinematography created an intense viewing experience for the audience, which helped them connect to the story. The scene that we chose is an essential part of the movie. It is one of the first and most significant interactions between the Joker and Batman. To set the tone, prior to this scene, the Joker was finally in police custody after wrecking mass chaos in Gotham, and Lieutenant Gordon begins an interrogation with the Joker to try to find information regarding the disappearance of District Attorney Harvey Dent. However, the Joker is unwilling to provide any valuable information, so Gordon leaves the rest of the interrogation up to Batman, who of course had been hiding in the shadows of the dimly...

The Physics of Batman

...Da Na Na Na Na Na Na... BATMAN! December 8th, 2010 THE DARK KNIGHT: 180 DEGREE TRUCK FLIP The seventh highest-grossing film of all time was released in 2008 in which Christopher Nolen directed a masterpiece which was nominated for eight academy awards. In the city of Gotham, the Joker is the most prominent antagonist which must be stopped by Batman in the most recently released movie about the superhero, The Dark Knight. This movie was a sequel to Batman Begins which was released in 2005. This research paper applies a broad range of physics topics to a single scene; namely the different forces in effect in this scene, action and reaction and their effects in collisions, acceleration and its role in assessing the overall plausibility of the scene, as well as different forms of energy illustrated within the scene such as kinetic and potential energy. The particular scene that will be used in order to convey all of the above ideas is just over half way into the movie (1 hour and 18 minutes in). Filmed in downtown Chicago, Batman latches a cable onto the front of a semi truck being driven by the Joker. Batman then rides his bike swerving through numerous light posts. When the cable inevitably runs out and is knotted through numerous light posts as well as other things, the truck has nowhere to go which then causes the cab end of the truck to stop, while the trailer of the truck flips up and over the cab. This scene can be found by searching “Batman truck flip” on......

...Angelia Renee Cady Com/156 May 15, 2011 Jennifer Iott Revision Practice After reading the draft of The Dark Knight, if there are any revisions to be made to improve this paper, keeping in mind the concept behind essay revision. Revising is looking for ways to make the ideas that this essay is built from clearer, stronger, and more convincing. When revising, always keep in mind that he/she may have to add, cut, move, or change whole sentences or paragraphs. When writing something like, “The Dark Knight was the most popular film of 2008,” there needs to be some kind of fact that backs this statement up. The awards that the film was nominated for or won can be mentioned to help give this comment some weight behind it would be appropriate. If it were me writing this essay on the Black Knight, I would want the world to know how good the story line is. Rearranging the order of the paragraphs would be appropriate, it is my opinion that the writer jumped ahead of himself/herself. I find that the information is a little scattered. Paragraph #2 and #3 needs to change places. The information in paragraph three is a continuation of the first paragraph. It gives the audience a look into why they will always view The Dark Knight as an outstanding movie. All the information concerning Batman Begins should follow after the second paragraph. This means, the original second paragraph is the third paragraph. This will make it......

...on the film so that I could make sure I knew what I was speaking of. After I had reviewed the research I have done, it turns out that Andy was right about The Dark Knight being the most popular film in the summer of 2008. It turns out that the film was first released in Australia, on July 16, 2008; it was two days later July 18, 2008 that it was released in North America. It wasn’t till July 24, 2008 when it was released in the United Kingdom. With over $1 billion in revenue worldwide and it is the seventh highest- grossing film of all time. I found that he was also correct when he stated that the film was a continuation from Batman Begins. The Dark Knight was filmed in many different places but the main filming took place in Chicago. The other parts took place in several parts of the United States, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. The Dark Knight is a film about a superhero, which was directed and co- written by Christopher Nolan. The film was also produced by Charles Roven and Emma Thomas. The Dark Knight was based on the DC Comics and is part of Nolan’s Batman film series. Christian Bale played the lead character (Batman/Bruce Wayne). Some other main characters that played in the movie are Heath Ledger (joker), Gary Oldman (James Gorden), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Rachel Dawes) and Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent). Each and every one had the chance to show how great their talents were during the filming of the movie. Each character had a seen that gave them the chance to showcase......
