C S Lewis
C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia. As Lewis wrote about the land of Narnia, an imaginary world visited by children of this world, he had two obvious purposes: to entertain the readers and to suggest analogies of the Christian faith. Although some feel that his stories are violent, Lewis is successful at using fiction to open peoples’ hearts to accepting Christ as their Savi

The children of today are surrounded by technology and entertainment that is full of violence. It is estimated that the average child watches from three to five hours of television a day! (Neilson 1993). Listening to music is also a time consuming pastime among children.

Television Shows Reflect American Culture There are many movies and television shows that reflect American culture. A show or movie must address some current societal problem or trend in order to truly reflect American life; murder, rape, racism, and, on a less serious note, parties, shopping, and sports are topics that deserve serious consideration by the public and the media.

Possibly language could be called bad if it was used in the wrong context or was ineffectual in communicating an idea to another person or persons, but this is not what people mean when they say bad language. They mean swearing. But why is swearing bad? Maybe it's blasphemous, but surely people have freedom of speech, or maybe it's sexually explicit,

Raging Bull In the opening scene of Raging Bull, Scorsese establishes the themes that control the rest of the film. Although it looks like a long take that lacks editing, the scene is visibly employing a formalistic quality because of the abstractness.

In this first scene, Jake is a depicted shadow boxing in a smoky boxing ring, seemingly inspired by his mental
