In the film, we see Spartacus and other slaves seize kitchen implements from the cookhouse in which they are eating and attack the guards. This is clearly justified by Plutarch in Fall of the Roman Empire; "seventy-eight, who realised this, managed to act in time and get away, armed with choppers and spits which they seized from some cookhouse". The film shows that in the summer of 73 BC, "about seventy slaves escaped from Batiatus's training school at Capua and established a defensible position on Mount Vesuvius some ...

Tv Violence - 1,374 words
The relationship between violence on the screen and violence in real life is extremely complicated. But while the relationship may not be that of direct cause and effect, we must bear it in mind. Violent programmes may depress some people, shock others, de-sensitise some and encourage imitation by a few."

Character Analysis Of Slaughter House Five - 1,054 words
In Slaughter House Five, Billy Pilgrim finds himself unstuck in time jumping between several periods of his life. Travelling between his experience as a prisoner of war in World War II to his suburban family life in the 1950s and 1960s, and his experience as a human specimen in an alien zoo on a distant planet, Billy seemingly has no control over these transitions. REVIEW Vonnegut's writing has always defied traditional classification and Slaughterhouse-Five is a prime example of this as it combines a mix of social satire, science fiction, anti-war sentiment as well as great deal of autobiographical detail. The full title-page of Slaughterhouse Five is perhaps the most revealing and apt desc ...

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.
