Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, printed single-sided, grade: 1,7, University of Freiburg, course: Proseminar (Terrorism in Hollywood Movies), 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Christian Metz stated that a film is difficult to explain because it is easy to understand. (qtd. inBuckland & Elsaesser: 1). I will analyse the film Collateral Damage, directed by AndrewDavis, in terms of its context and how it is portrayed technically. My aim is to show ArnoldSchwarzenegger s development, how Collateral Damages represents a turning point in thehistory of action movies Arnold took part in, and how he has changed from a muscle shirtwearing daredevil and killing machine to a family man with moral values. Therefore, I willstart to look at a couple of important action movies in which Arnold Schwarzenegger plays aleading role and after that, I will compare the differences of the former Arnold and the Arnoldwe see in Collateral Damage. To realise this, I will focus on Schwarzenegger s behaviour andthe way, Andrew Davis represents the fire-fighter and his emotions. In the end, I will give ashort conclusion regarding Arnold s rise from rags to riches and how he represents anirreplaceable icon not only in the history of action movies during the last three decades.Everybody knows the Australian guy Arnie alias Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first role inthe movie Hercules in New York owes Arnold his career as a bodybuilder and his enormoussize. Released in 1970, Arnold at this time known as Arnold Strong plays a mythologicaltoga clad Hercules. Arnold takes part in a weight-lifting competition; he becomes a wrestler,rides his chariot through Times Square, descends into hell and gets mixed up with gangsters.In contrast to Collateral Damage, Arthur Allan Seidelman, the director of Hercules in NewYork, focuses on Schwarzenegger s muscle mass.In 1982, John Milius creates the fantasy action movie Conan the Barbarian. Here, Arnoldportrays a bulldog and beefy giant who survives as sole human the strain of bondage. Conanin the role of an invincible gladiator and snake killer, sweetened by two fisted action,spectacular fighting scenes and amours turn Arnold into the James Bond of the Middle Ages.In the first third of the film, Conan knocks out a camel with an aimed bash (0:38:02). Hiscruelty peaks out when he decollates Thulsa in front of his followers and raises his head like atrophy. Unlike Collateral Damage, Arnold takes much pleasure in fights and he seems to be alittle bit sadistic at this time.His most famous role is storied [...]

"Ally McBeal". Critique Of A Prime Time Network Television Program GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 1998 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1 (A), Ohio University (School of Telecommunication), course: Broadcast & Cable Programming, 16 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Television critique 99 KB , abstract: If there was one show in the last year almost everybody talked about, it was certainly Fox Network s new series Ally McBeal . The show tells the story of a young woman working for a Boston law firm, trying to be successful in the courtroom as well as in her love life, succeeding in the former rather than the latter. On her first day in the new job for example she finds out that her ex-boyfriend Billy (Gil Bellows) works there as well as his new wife, the smart and beautiful Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith of Melrose Place ). Since Ally (Calista Flockhart) still has feelings for Billy, treating him and Georgia as colleagues of course isn t quite so easy and the three find themselves in a lot of awkward situations.§§Trying to figure out what genre Ally McBeal belongs to, is not so easy. On the first look it might appear to be a courtroom drama due to its hour-long format and trials taking place in every episode. But there is also a comedy side to Ally McBeal . Her struggle with life is shown in a humorous (often even slapstick) way and other characteristics of a comedy, like childish behavior of the protagonist or lack of experience with the other sex (Kaminsky 1985, p. 137-139) can be found as well.§Although the show won two Golden Globes in the comedy categories in 1997, Ally McBeal should rather be labeled as a dramedy due to its mixture of humor and serious issues. The genre of dramedy is a combination of drama and comedy and had its (short) heyday during the 1980s when it was praised as a fresh recipe to address an upscale audience. Ally McBeal does a very good job in reviving this genre, making its audience laugh as well as reflect or even cry.

Opis - Franz Schubert may have only lived 32 years, but there is no question that he packed a phenomenal amount into his lifetime, with around 600 of his total of nearly 1000 works composed before he was 21. It is astounding to think, given his reputation today as one of Western art"s greatest figures, that only a very small proportion of his music was either performed or published in his day. Born in 1797, he was very much aware of the "shadow" of Beethoven, another of the "First Viennese School" (with which Schubert is often equated) and a composer who immeasurably expanded the expressive range of three major genres: the symphony, piano sonata and string quartet. And yet his doubts regarding how he was to follow this German composer"s example proved unjustified; combining his phenomenal melodic gift with a powerful dramatic sense and command of large-scale structure, Schubert equally enhanced these three areas, bestowing on each a large body of compositions that are among today"s most performed pieces of classical music. The symphony, piano sonata and string quartet, therefore, are all included in this special collection, which details the majority of the composer"s output through separating it into key sections. Joining the string quartets " of which the late D804, D810 are D887 are undoubtedly the most inspired " are a range of other chamber music treasures, including the famous String Quintet and "Trout" Piano Quintet, the endearing large-scale Octet for wind and strings, and various duo works such as the Arpeggione Sonata. Though the sonatas dominate his piano literature, Schubert also excelled at composing shorter works for this instrument, such as the Impromptus, and a wonderful array of music for four hands is also included. Contributions to the realm of sacred choral music include six masses, the unfinished Lazarus (which Alfred Einstein believed far surpassed Wagner"s Tannhäuser and Lohengrin as a step along the road to music drama) and the imposing Deutsche Messe, while the inclusion of the opera Alfonso und Estrella and the incidental music to Rosamunde on the set represents the handful of works Schubert wrote for the stage. Last, but by no means least, are Schubert"s secular vocal works. Containing some of his most poignant and penetrative writing, and drawing on a vast range of authors " including Goethe, Schiller, Shakespeare and many of his close friends " these include part-songs, then a popular genre among amateur choruses, and a huge corpus of lieder, among which are such gems as Gretchen am Spinnrade and Der Tod und das Mädchen as well as the great song cycles Die schöne Müllerin, Winterreise and Schwanengesang. That Schubert excelled in almost every genre akin to the period in which he lived is in no doubt. Spanning the length of his career, and featuring a wealth of acclaimed artists and ensembles " among them some of the composer"s greatest interpreters, such as Alfred Brendel and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau " this comprehensive box set, priced at a mere "60, is an exciting addition to Brilliant Classics" ever-expanding library of editions. Other information: - The most comprehensive Schubert Edition ever! - A celebration of the Viennese genius, from the grand structures of the jubilant 9th symphony ("of heavenly length") to the morbid skeleton melodies of Winterreise, from the genial bonhomie of the Trout Quintet to the utter despair of Der Doppelgänger, from the virtuoso brilliance of the Wanderer Fantasy to the rustic simplicity of the Ländler. - Schubert"s music touches the heart directly, his deceptively simple melodies bring tears to the eyes, his wandering between the dark and the light symbolizes the universal condition humaine. - Featuring numerous period-instrument and award-winning recordings.

Although its participants are still in grade school, Pop Warner football is serious business in Miami, where local teams routinely advance to the national championships. Games draw thousands of fans; recruiters vie for nascent talent; drug dealers and rap stars bankroll teams; and the stakes are so high that games sometimes end in gunshots. In America's poorest city, troubled parents dream of NFL stardom for children who long only for a week in Disney World at the Pop Warner Super Bowl. In 2001, journalist Robert Andrew Powell spent a year following two young teams through rollercoaster seasons. The Liberty City Warriors, former national champs, will suffer the team's first-ever losing season. The inner-city kids of the Palmetto Raiders, undefeated for two straight years, are rewarded for good play with limo rides and steak dinners. But their flamboyant coach (the "Darth Vader of youth football") will be humbled by defeat in a down-to-the-wire playoff game. TITLE OF BOOK is an inside-the-huddle look into a world of innocence and corruption, where every kickoff bares political, social, and racial implications. By an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Best American Sports Writing, it is an unforgettable drama that shows us just what it is to win and to lose in America. INTRODUCTION A portrait of Miami, a city whose government, even after race riots which crippled the black community in the 80s, serves the interest mostly of the Cuban-American constituency and has been rocked by various political scandals (bribery, fiscal mismanagement, etc.). The author tells how he witnessed inner-city blacks find hope and identity during a high school football semifinal that was attended by tens of thousands. He takes a newspaper assignment covering Pop Warner football games and sees much he admires ("a depressed community proud that its boys could do something better than anyone else") but also "the corruption of sport at its infancy" (recruiting, fans assaulting the coach after the team's only loss, parents living through their kids, gambling, etc.). He quits his job to cover a season of Pop Warner, from the first day to the last game, attending every single season and game of the 95-pound Gwen Cherry Bulls, whose coach is dubbed the 'Darth Vadar of Pop Warner'. Prologue Registration day. Coach Brian Johnson of the Liberty City Warriors is introduced as he prints out ridiculously complicated game strategies for his team, based on the Georgia Southern Eagles game plans. It is his first year as head coach and he is determined to prove himself. "I wouldn't be a man if I didn't aspire to run my own team." We're introduced to the "Darth Vadar of Pop Warner" Raul Campos, the ostentatious coach of the 110-pound Palmetto Raiders, who is editing a video hyping his team as the greatest of all time, winners of back-to-back national champions at Disney World Sport Center, undefeated in the last 2 seasons. We're introduced to Diamond Pless, a young kid whose uncle was confined to a wheelchair after a shooting with a rival drug dealer, and who is now helping his uncle live his dream of NFL superstardom vicariously We're introduced to Mark Peterson, the head of the league who tries without much success to discourage the recruitment of black inner city players to suburban ballparks, and is still torn over last year's national championship, where a Suniland team made up mostly of recruits won 56-6. The coach lost his job because he ran up the store, but is suing to be reinstated. CHAPTER ONE: First Practice The first practice, plus a history of Pop Warner football, the largest youth football league in America, started in 1929 in Philly to prevent youth crime and eventually to over 6,000 teams nationally competing to play in the national champion at Disney World. CHAPTER TWO: Liberty City A tour of Liberty City--past the wealthy enclaves of Miami and the poverty of Little Havana is a black neighborhood torn by race riots in the 80s and gang-related assassinations in the 90s. The neighborhood grew out of a black ghetto called Nigger Town which eventually became a progressive experimental black-only community named Knight Manor until a highway ran through it and tore the neighborhood apart. This is wear porno rapper Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew comes from, who helped found the Liberty City program. Since then, the Warriors have won city championships in 7 of 8 weight divisions and have spawned other all-black parks. CHAPTER THREE: CAMPOS Inside the home of the Cuban exile turned real estate wizard Coach Campos, who is hated and called a "cracker" and takes his players to games in chartered motor coaches and used to take them in Hummer limos. After being banned from another Pop Warner team, Campos took over the Palmetto team comprised mostly of white suburban kids and replaced them with mostly black players recruited from West Perrine via varsity letter jackets, steak dinnnnnnners, etc. CHAPTER FOUR: DIAMOND Diamond's mom tries to petition for him to get a larger role on the team, but Diamond doesn't show much promise. Diamond's uncle Durell describes his gun injury. CHAPTER FIVE: SUNILAND We're introduced to Phillip, whose father is dead from AIDS and whose HIV+ mother's behavior is erratic because of drugs. He is often left to his own devices. He sees football as his way out. We're introduced to the Suniland Devils, a suburban team comprised of recruited back players whose coach Gator Rebhan was banned after he ran up the score in a championship game. Rebhan thinks the League is jealous because he took a white ballpark and made it successful. CHAPTER SIX: GOULDS The history of the Railroad Shop, a black settlement that developed nearly a century ago, was condemned by the city, but eventually turned black again. Now Goulds is black and poor. In their first game, Liberty City loses to Goulds, with Coach Johnson's playbook proving way too complex for the pee wees. CHAPTER SEVEN: SEPTEMBER 11 Warriors lose their second game. News of 9/11 comes, but Florida is very removed from the goings-on in NYC and Washington. The coaches convene at the field despite cancelled games and try to make sense of things. CHAPTER EIGHT: McADOO We're introduced to shadowy figure named McAdoo, who "takes care" of high school and college players in vague ways. He's a street agent, of which every major college sports program has at least one. They operate under the radar, even going so far as to buy cars for young players even though he has no traceable source of income besides selling watermelons and gambling. He points out all of the players he "raised"-- rappers, NFL players, etc. McAdoo's cash flow is "supplemented by his relationships with some of Liberty City's more prominent entrepreneurs," including drug dealers and gang members. McAdoo has switched his focus from encouraging kids to go into football to encouraging them to read. CHAPTER NINE: LIBERTY CITY AT PALMETTO Liberty City is now 1-4 and their chances at the championship are slipping. A player is hit hard and has to go to the hospital in an ambulance. Coach Johnson is questioning why he even bothers. CHAPTER ELEVEN: PLEX The story of drug-related gang violence in Liberty City. Gang members bet up to $10,000 and intimidated coaches and player. Diamond's father-in-law "Plex" was arrested for a murder associated with protecting the distribution channels of a crack laboratory. He is serving 5 life sentences. CHAPTER ELEVEN: ELECTION The Elian Gonzalez debacle, and how it further turned the black community against the Cubans. The Warriors win a game. CHAPTER THIRTEEN: THE GAME A story about a legendary street game decades ago between a group of white kids and black kids. The black kids

My Father Il Duce Kales Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this historical, revisionist memoir, Romano Mussolini (September 26, 1927-February 3, 2006), the last surviving child of dictator Benito Mussolini, contributes his unique perspective to the growing body of work that portrays Il Duce's era. Through Romano's portrait of never before publicly shared memories and feelings, My Father Il Duce brings alive the domestic scenes of his childhood particularly when they intersected with his father's public role. He also relates in detail the memories of his mother, Donna Rachele, who lived until 1979 and often spoke with Romano about his father. Romano's memories, sorted by chapter, but not presented chronologically, shift between his own recollections of time spent with his father to the years after Mussolini's death in 1945. The prose lingers and then artistically moves forward, melancholy to fierce to vulnerable, like the notes of the jazz music played by Romano during his acclaimed musical career. Mussolini is presented here as a man who was supremely convinced that he was the master of his life: "'Everything happening around me, '" my father used to say, "'leaves me indifferent. I consciously choose 'Live dangerously' as my life's motto. As an old soldier, I say, 'If I advance, follow me. If I retreat, kill me. If they kill me, vindicate me.'" He saw his existence in scenes of high drama, envisioning in the end, Romano tells us, that he would be placed in front of throngs at New York City's Madison Square Garden and then executed in a macabre spectacle. In this memoir, Romano does not truly ponder the consequences of his father's alliances and dictatorship, though with at least one notable exception that he gave considerable thought to his personal anger toward Hitler for "stabbing my father in the back at his darkest hour." Instead, he seeks to render concrete the memories that he held silent over a lifetime before they were lost to history. The fascist order that Mussolini created and imposed upon Italy is one that Italians and students of history the world over are still interpreting. Indeed, his legacy was centerstage in the May 2006 Italian national elections, and one of the deputies in the Italian parliament today who represents his alliances is Alessandra Mussolini, Romano's daughter and defender of her infamous grandfather. As the trend of historical revisionism in Italy continues, in particular regarding the role of fascism, some of this kinder, gentler Mussolini is already widely accepted. Thus, My Father Il Duce (in Italian Il Duce Mio Padre) was published to great attention and controversy in Italy in 2004 and quickly became a bestseller. Romano often appeared on Italian national television and in newspaper interviews. In part, this illuminates that fascist supporters are alive and well, while also confirms even among non-supporters, the ongoing attraction to the cult of personality Mussolini masterminded. In Italy, this public discourse about Mussolini is common. However, for others it is important to establish a context for Romano's memoir. This is accomplished here through an accompanying masterful twenty-one page introductory essay by one of the world's foremost authorities on Italian political culture, Alexander Stille: writing the introductory essay to My Father Il Duce is a bit like writing the warning label on a powerful drug that has its uses but must be taken with care and knowledge of its possible side effects. Romano reached his goal of living to see the first publication of his memoir in Italian. As for this English-language edition, he earlier expressed approval of the front cover design. On January 1, 2006, he received the translated English language manuscript of his writing. During the last month of his life, he approved it. Romano Mussolini died on February 3, 2006, at age seventy-nine in a Rome hospital soon after heart surgery. Romano's death made international news. The New York Times obituary reported: "In the 1950's and 60's he was in the vanguard of Italian jazz with his group the Romano Mussolini All Stars, and he played with American greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington and Chet Baker. Mr. Mussolini gained even greater international fame with his first marriage, to Anna Maria Scicolone, the sister of the actress Sophia Loren....Despite his own scrupulous avoidance of politics, politicians from Italy's right wing-parties widely lauded Mr. Mussolini and his family name in statements they released: 'Romano knew how to make us love him for his humanity, his art, but also for the dignity and coherence with which he defended his family from attacks and demonizations.'" Through Romano's worldwide celebrity and well-regarded nature, his words in defense of Il Duce, albeit ones he no doubt wrote as a son who loved his father, offer a rare insider's perspective that can help us better understand, and therefore more readily defeat tyranny. This memoir's account of history further reminds us of the continuing need for our vigilance in the pursuit of truth.

Jane Knill became the third wife of the great architect and designer Augustus Pugin in 1848. Jane, whom is described by Pugin as a 'first-rate Gothic woman', kept an intermittent journal which is published here for the first time. It covers the four brief years of her marriage to a most brilliant man, who sadly died aged only 40. Like her husband, Jane was a devout convert to Roman Catholicism. She became step mother to his six children and bore him two more of her own. Her journal tells of her life at the Pugin home, The Grange, Ramsgate; of Christmas revelries, troubles with servants, picnics on the cliffs and a trip to France. Still more poignant is Jane's account of her husband's last months, as a lifetime's propensity to nervous exhaustion, made worse by mercury poisoning, resulted in a decline into madness and death. Here is the voice of a Victorian woman as she lived through both daily life and scenes of high personal drama; her story makes compelling reading.

Anton Chekhov - Plays Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Five masterful dramatic works from one of the world's best-loved playwrights, Anton Chekhov's "Plays" is translated with notes by Peter Carson, and an introduction by Richard Gilman in "Penguin Classics". At a time when the Russian theatre was dominated by formulaic melodramas and farces, Chekhov created a new sort of drama that laid bare the everyday lives, loves and yearnings of ordinary people. "Ivanov" depicts a man stifled by inactivity and lost idealism, and "The Seagull" contrasts a young man's selfish romanticism with the stoicism of a woman cruelly abandoned by her lover. With 'the scenes from country life' of "Uncle Vanya", his first fully mature play, Chekhov developed his own unique dramatic world, neither tragedy nor comedy. In "Three Sisters" the Prozorov sisters endlessly dream of going to Moscow to escape the monotony of provincial life, while his comedy "The Cherry Orchard" portrays characters futilely clinging to the past as their land is sold from underneath them. Peter Carson's moving translations convey Chekhov's subtle blend of comedy, tragedy and psychological insight. In his introduction, Richard Gilman examines how Chekhov broke with theatrical conventions and discusses each play in detail. Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was born in Taganrog, a port on the sea of Azov. In 1879 he travelled to Moscow, where he entered the medical faculty of the university, graduating in 1884. During his university years, he supported his family by contributing humorous stories and sketches to magazines. He published his first volume of stories, "Motley Tales", in 1886, and a year later his second volume "In the Twilight", for which he received the Pushkin Prize. Today his plays, including "Uncle Vanya", "The Seagull", and "The Cherry Orchard" are recognised as masterpieces the world over. If you enjoyed "Plays", you might like Chekhov's "The Shooting Party", also available in "Penguin Classics".

The Bargue-Gerome Drawing Course is a complete reprint of a famous, late nineteenth century drawing course. It contains a set of almost two hundred masterful lithographs of subjects for copying by drawing students before they attempt drawing from life or nature. Consequently it is a book that will interest artists, art students, art historians and lovers and collectors of drawings. It also introduces us to the work and life of a hitherto neglected master: Charles Bargue. The Drawing Course consists of three sections. The first consists of plates drawn after casts, usually of antique examples. Different parts of the body are studied in order of difficulty, until full figures are presented. The second section pays homage to the western school of painting with lithographs after exemplary drawings by Renaissance and modern masters. The third part contains almost sixty academies or drawings after nude male models, all original inventions by Bargue, the lithographer. With great care, the student is introduced to continually more difficult problems in the close observing and recording of nature. Practiced professional artists will see at once the problems of representation that are approached by Bargue, and they will delight in his solutions. Figure painters will copy the plates to keep in tune; so to speak, much as pianists practice the exercises of Czerny before performing Beethoven. Art students will find it a practical and progressive introduction to realistic figure drawing. Art historians can learn by studying these drawings just what was prized in late ninetheenth century figure painting. They will recognize the reliance upon tradition by the use of antique sculptures as models in the first part: Antiquity is here used, not to impose a classical style, but as an aid in seeing the structure of the human body with clarity and intelligence. The result is a convergence of Classicism and Realism. There are no numerical proportional charts, perspective boxes or geometrical schemata to memorize. All the techniques and schemata are developed out of and for the object or person in view. The drawings are splendid; beautiful; not simply products of assiduity, but of careful observation and the wish to transcribe and communicate the beauty of nature and light, as well as the manifold appearances of the human body. These are objectives that will touch and move any careful reader of drawings, and the figurative arts. Charles Bargue started his career as a lithographer of drawings by hack artists for a popular market in comic, sentimental and soft-porn subjects. By working with Gerome, and in preparing the plates for the course, Bargue was transformed into a spectacular painter of single figures and intimate scenes; a master of precious details that always remain observation and never became self-conscious virtuosity, of color schemes that unified his composition in exquisite tonal harmonies. The last part of the book is a biography of Bargue, along with a preliminary catalogue of his paintings, accompanied by reproductions of all that have been found and of many of those lost.

On the evening of 30 March, 1982, Commander David Hall, chief engineer of the British nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror received a telephone call giving him the order to 'store for war'. At first he didn't believe it. In the early hours of 2 April, Argentine forces invaded the Falkland Isles. The sinking of the Belgrano was one of the most dramatic moments of the Falklands conflict. For many it signalled Britain's entry into the war and it has been seen as a politically motivated decision deliberately designed to take the country irrevocably into the fight. Now Mike Rossiter - with unprecedented access to sailors from the Belgrano and HMS Conqueror - gives us a dramatic and definitive retelling of the events that led up to the sinking.With all the pace and tension of a thriller, "Sink the Belgrano" takes us inside the battle for the South Atlantic and shows us the human drama behind the famous, and controversial, Sun headline 'Gotcha!' We track the collision course between the British submarine Conqueror and the Argentine warship - as the two sides and everyone aboard head towards the climactic moment just outside the exclusion zone set up by the British around the Falkland Isles. We witness the behind-the-scenes arguments, discussions and powerbroking that led to the decision to fire the three torpedoes. And, for the first time, we hear from the sailors on both sides - the personal testimony of the hunt for and attack on the Belgrano, and from the Argentine side the experience of being under attack and the sinking that left 340 members of her crew dead.
