001 Space Odyssey - 358 words
There are many scenes that take place in a book, some are more important than others. In the book I read over the summer, 2001: Space Odyssey by Arthur Clarke. A few of the scenes were very important and without them the book would have been a waste. Here are three examples of importance in scenes from my book. Frank Poole is sent to the moon of earth to explore a strange uncovered artifact. This artifact turns out to be a signaling device put on the moon by aliens millions of years before the time when it was discovered. What happens next in this scene is fairly important. When the artifact, named TMA-1, was exposed to the sun for the first time in over 3 million years it send out a signal ...

1984 - 1,705 words
The film segment chosen was the final scene from Stanley Kubrik^s 2001 A Space Odyssey made in 1968. As the name would suggest, the film is set almost entirely in the future. Already having projected itself over 30 years into the future, it would be safe to assume that this motion picture offers a wealth of imagery and futuristic vision. It does. It is towards the end of the film, however, that Kubrik offers this to us on a much greater scale. In these few minutes, we are presented with the dawn of a new era: a near incomprehensible evolution of humanity. Through many complex design devices, the set design successfully achieves a vision for the future that is neither dystopian, nor entirely ...

001 Discovery Of The Monolith - 753 words
In the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, created by Dr. Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick, there are several similarities between sections The Dawn of Man and Discovery of the Monolith. First, both segments portray the use of tools in various forms. The transition of the bone to a space satellite and the ability to misuse tools as weapons, are similarities between The Dawn of Man and Discovery of the Monolith. Next, both eras shown in 2001: A Space Odyssey have two distinguished groups who want the opposing group away from their territory. For example, Group 1 and Group 2 of The Dawn of Man fight over the waterhole, while the Russians in Discovery of the Monolith are snooty with the Americans ...

Space Odyessey - 453 words
After watching this movie, a lot of it is very confusing to me and is really hard for me to understand. You really have to think about what is being said in the movie to get a good understanding of the points that the director is trying to get across. I would really like to get a professors view of the movie to get a better understanding. Throughout this paper I am going to give a little review of the movie and discuss interesting facts that I thought were helpful and appealing. The beginning of the movie was pretty weird I thought. I wasnt used to a movie without any spoken words. Throughout the whole movie the music is usually playing the role as the speaker or communicator. I thought this ...

To The Fullest - 517 words
Where have I been for the past 60 years? What have I accomplished? Have I made a difference to anyones life? It saddens me to think that the world would not be any different if I were never born. And there no chance of changing that because I have become wrinkled, decrepit, and unable to do much physical activity. Sometimes I wish I had lived my life to the fullest when I was able to. I wish I would have traveled, would have laughed, would have just opened my eyes more than I did. The other day I was walking in the park - I try to at least once a week - and I saw two little boys sitting under the shade of a tree. They were board as hell because nothing good was on television at that time. Ho ...

Analysis Of Stanley Kubrick's Influence As A Film Maker - 1,515 words
"A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings.

The son of a physician, he began his career at the relatively young age of 16 when he began working as a freelance photographer for Look Magazine.

Does The Matrix Offer An Ultimately Utopian Or Dystopian View Of Information-technology? - 1,433 words
The Matrix is a postmodern film about life in the year 2199. The word matrix in terms of computers is, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, an interconnected array of diodes, cores, or other circuit elements that has a number of inputs and outputs and somewhat resembles a lattice or grid in its circuit design or physical construction. The film questions whether or not we live in reality or we live in a virtual world. The film claims that we (the human race) live inside our minds and that we are actually plugged into a computer programme in which we believe we are experiencing reality. The film is based on the idea that artificial intelligence (AI) has taken over the world and that the ...

A Clockwork Orange - 397 words
Millions of years ago, before the inventions of our time, before the very fire in which we use in our homes, were the first glimpse of civilization. Man had not fully developed his posture or his brain, but the very first signs were showing. Two tribes ruled this small area in the heart of what we now call Africa. These two tribes of 'man-apes' were constantly fighting with each other, the fight to survive. The story leads you to one of the tribes, with 'Moon-Watcher' as one of the lead males, who wakes up one day to find a mysterious 'New Rock' (Which was the black monolith.) To Moon-Watcher and his tribe, this New Rock was nothing but a rock, but to their surprise, it started taking over t ...
