Night of the Hunter movie

The symbol I got out of that movie is that justice will always come to those stupid people who think they can get away with murder and crimes like Harry Powell who ends up murdering the two kids mother Willa who’s real name is Shelley Winters also thinks he can get away with nearly murdering John  who’s real name is Billy Chapin while his sister Pearl who’s real name is Sally Jane Bruce has to see him nearly being murdered. Also I hate this movie because I really do not like thrillers or horrors as they freak me out plus all the time I get nightmares. This would be compared to another movie like the Lovely Bones movie where this serial killer murders one of the main characters then murders himself at the end of the movie and at the end of the previous movie I was talking about because someone executes him at the end of it. Compared to a few episodes of one of my favourite television programmes which is Home and Away when someone goes on a killing spree around Summer Bay because of someone in that community killed one of the serial killers friends and compare this to real life where it happens occasionally.

This thriller is one of the great masterpieces of American cinema, a movie so strangely repellent, so poetic and so utterly hypnotic that it sadly never found an audience. Based on a novel by Davis Grubb, it was Charles Laughton’s only film as director, and it features Robert Mitchum’s finest screen performance as a bogus priest and psychopath who has “love” and “hate” tattooed on his knuckles. Serving time in jail, Mitchum learns about a bank robbery from a condemned man, and on his release he relentlessly pursues the man’s children whom he believes can lead him to a cache of stolen money. Mitchum’s always imposing, menacing presence is heightened by Laughton to an extraordinary degree, and their stunning collaboration is enhanced by Lillian Gish’s portrayal of a gun-toting spinster. Set during the Depression in a rural backwater where the riverbanks are alive with croaking frogs, it’s a fairy tale. Halimanyomi (2013 October 21).

War of the worlds

War of the worlds

War of the worlds was about Halloween and how easy it was to prank people on October 30th 1938 from a American radio drama anthology series Mercury Theatre the Halloween episode broad-casted over Columbia Broadcasting System Radio.

This was based on a book by H.G.Wells and directed by Orson Welles and compared to nowadays we generally do not find it easy at all to prank people.

Well I did not like it at all because I hate pranks especially near Halloween.

Keep-Vid is where you are supposed to down load a video of you-tube and change it into a mp3 and then change music on another video to a song you down loaded I think to see what it sounds like when you change the song on the video.  I have tried doing that twice and both times have not worked also when a lecturer did it at Unitec Mt Albert in Point Chevalier it worked for him  yahoo not.

I really hate keepvid because it never worked on my lap top after trying it two times it was driving me insane.

Lesbian stereotypes and other females

There are two types the butch lesbian or the feminine lesbian.

When I looked up these articles on female stereotypes it really infuriated me that all they seem to be is the house wives cleaners,must obey all men.,March,16).Lesbian stereotypes in the media. Retrieved from

The other female stereotypes are that all girls should clean the house and stay at home also do all the clothes washing. Also they should let men be the dominant people in relationships like Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Whereas nowadays Disney is changing little girl stereotypes by making them strong and independent also not being in abusive relationships.

Versimilitude is all about the fact or equality of being versimilar, the appearance of being true or real like a country  being in Civil War like Syria is in right now.

Compared to non-verisimilitude where there is no appearance of anything being true or real like .unicorns or talking animals or flying dinosaurs.

What I think about Versimilitude is people like to tell others when they are really small that Santa Claus actually exists because it appears true because all the milk and carrots also cake sometimes gets put on a plate for them when really it’s just nonsense. He’s really not there with reindeer who eat carrots or milk or birthday cake it’s just an excuse for parents to eat more food before they go to bed on Christmas Eve.

Cultural Imperialism

Cultural Imperialism can be defined as the practice of promoting and imposing a culture and injecting the language of one nation into another nation.

For example that would be people from English countries coming to New Zealand telling Moaris that they can’t speak their language any more or do things their way any more like fishing for food to eat so they have to adopt the English way of live but that was when a Englishman called James Cook came here in the 17th or 18th Century or before that.

So now in modern days in the 20th and 21st Century Moaris can speak Moari when ever they want to to who ever they want to and have their very own television programme and a slot of television news for them at 4:25 pm till 5:25 pm on channel one.

I really think it is completely stupid that we had this in New Zealand and in other countries because people of what ever culture or language they speak should be able to speak in that language also culture.

Informed by the works of Noam ChomskyMichel Foucault, and Antonio Gramsci, Edward Saïd is a founding figure of Post-colonialism, established with the book Orientalism (1978), a humanist critique of The Enlightenment, which criticizes Western knowledge of “The East” — specifically the English and the French constructions of what is and what is not “Oriental”.[14][15][16] Whereby said “knowledge” then led to cultural tendencies towards a binary opposition of the Orient vs. the Occident, wherein one concept is defined in opposition to the other concept, and from which they emerge as of unequal value.[16] In Culture and Imperialism (1993), the sequel to Orientalism, Saïd proposes that, despite the formal end of the “age of empire” after the Second World War (1939–45), colonial imperialism left a cultural legacy to the (previously) colonized peoples, which remains in their contemporary civilizations; and that said cultural imperialism is very influential in the international systems of power.[17]

Mass media

The definition for this is a means of public communication reaching a large audience.

These would be examples of mass media like radio, television newspapers internet on computers or phones.

So comparing this to the olden days when people would have to hear things from their neighbours then pass it onto someone else by word of mouth.

I think the old ways of communication are too slow and that everything needs to be instantaneous to keep up with our busy lives.

The newspaper industry has always been cyclical, and the industry has weathered previous troughs. But while television‘s arrival in the 1950s presaged the decline of newspapers’ importance as most people’s source of daily news, the explosion of the internet in the 1990s and the first decade of the 21st century increased the panoply of media choices available to the average reader while further cutting into newspapers’ hegemony as the source of news. Both television and the Internet bring news to the consumer faster and in a more visual style than newspapers, which are constrained by their physical form and the need to be physically manufactured and distributed. The competing mediums also offer advertisers the opportunity to use moving images and sound. And the internet search function allows advertisers to tailor their pitch to readers who have revealed what information they are seeking—an enormous advantage.

The Internet has also gone a step further than television in eroding the advertising income of newspapers, as – unlike broadcast media – it proves a convenient vehicle for classified advertising, particularly in categories such as jobs, vehicles, and real estate. Free services likeCraigslist have decimated the classified advertising departments of many newspapers, some of which depended on classifieds for 70% of their ad revenue.[7] At the same time, newspapers have been pinched by consolidation of large department stores, which once accounted for substantial advertising sums.

Press baron Rupert Murdoch once described the profits flowing from his stable of newspapers as “rivers of gold.” But, said Murdoch several years later, “sometimes rivers dry up.”[8] “Simply put,” wrote Buffalo News owner Warren Buffett, “if cable and satellite broadcasting, as well as the internet, had come along first, newspapers as we know them probably would never have existed.”[9]

As their revenues have been squeezed, newspapers have also been increasingly assailed by other media taking away not only their readers, but their principal sources of profit. Many of these ‘new media’ are not saddled with expensive union contracts, printing presses, delivery fleets and overhead built over decades. Many of these competitors are simply ‘aggregators’ of news, often derived from print sources, but without print media’s capital-intensive overhead.[10] Some estimates put the percentage of online news derived from newspapers at 80%.[11]

“Newspapers are doing the reporting in this country,” observed John S. Carroll, former editor of The Los Angeles Times for five years. “Google and Yahoo aren’t those people putting reporters on the street in any number. Blogs cannot afford it.”[12] Many newspapers also suffer from the broad trend toward “fragmentation” of all media – in which small numbers of large media outlets attempting to serve substantial portions of the population are replaced by an abundance of smaller and more specialized organizations, often aiming only to serve specific interest groups. So-called narrowcasting has splintered audiences into smaller and smaller slivers. But newspapers have not been alone in this: the rise of cable television and satellite television at the expense of network television in countries such as the United States and United Kingdom is another example of this fragmentation.
