The Knight And Chivalry A Critical Review Of Richard Barber - 1,186 words
Richard Barber first published The Knight and Chivalry in 1970. At the time, not a whole lot had been written on the subject of chivalry. Thus, Barber can be viewed is sort of an original scholarly writer on this subject matter. His work is extensive. In this particular book he covers the following concepts: the transition of the Knight from mounted warrior, chivalry and literature, chivalry in the field, chivalry in religion, and finally, chivalry in the state. All five parts present pages of rich text. However, I will be dealing specifically on the concept of chivalry and literature. My reason is this: to the reading it was done in MDVL 145, heroes and villains, I am more inclined to look ...

Critical Review Of "fried Green Tomatoes" - 431 words
Fried Green Tomatoes is a thoroughly enjoyable movie-going experience, replete with laughter, tears, triumph, and tragedy. Unfortunately, it has been sanitized and "Hollywoodized, with the relationship between the two 1930 female leads left ambiguous, and a few too many scenes going over-the-top to manipulate an emotional reaction. So, while providing two-plus hours worth of solid entertainment, director Jon Avnet's picture, adapted from Fannie Flaggs novel, lacks the crucial ingredient that would have lifted it above the level of a tearjerker to that of the extraordinary. The acting, however, can easily be counted among Fried Green Tomatoes' strengths. Especially noteworthy are the performa ...

Critical Review Of Disney's "mulan" - 364 words
The movie Mulan was an entertaining and comical film to watch, but it did have some scenes that were violent and showed aggressive action. There was a scene where a womans backend caught on fire and another time her face was scalded with hot tea. Throughout the movie at various times, the characters were punching, hitting, kicking, and fighting other people. There wasnt any blood but there was plenty of punching. These were acts of explicit violence. One scene showed a Hun leader about to shoot a man with a bow and arrow. Just before he let go of the arrow the screen blanked out. This was the only implicit act of violence in the movie. The only scenes that could harm a child watching the fil ...

At the same time he made many original conceptual contributions to each of the disciplines he employed. He is known as the "father of existentialism", but at least as important are his critiques of Hegel and of the German romantics, his contributions to the development of modernism, h ...
