Blog 18: poor Midge

So this film was pretty good at what it explained it was going to. I just wasn’t a fan of the characters. They were dumb, very dumb especially Scotty. My initial thoughts on “Vertigo” was that I was mad at the end. I couldn’t believe how it ended it was so annoying. Scotty was also very annoying throughout the whole film. He was also a horndog and fell in love with who he thought was his friends wife. I really liked the beginning of this film but when Scotty started to be creepy I started to hate it. He was like a 50 year old man going after a 30 year old woman WHO WAS MARRIED… I just can’t get over that. *gags* Also poor Midge she was always there for Scotty through everything and she got nothing because he was literally to psycho to see what he really had in front of him, like how dumb could he really be. I just really don’t understand what was going on in this guys head the whole time because he was straight crazy. Well the first thing I think everybody would change would be the animations and make them more modern because they’re really bad. I would also not make Scotty so old (just for my comfort obviously) and maybe not make him so dumb. The animation thingys are the most important things that need to be fixed because when you watch it now it just looks cheaply made and really really old and that doesn’t appeal to the modern audience. Also another thing I would change would be that part right at the end when Scotty tried to change Judy into Gavin’s wife because nowadays that wouldn’t be socially acceptable. Woman now would not like to see that in a movie its not like that anymore. Those are pretty much my only critics about making it more modern because other than those things it does a pretty good job at being a psychological thriller. I also was just a bit furious at the end of this film, it made me very mad.

Blog 17: Not a fan of poetry

So first of all I really don’t like poetry in general so of course I didn’t like this poem. Well I had some real reasons for this too. This poem was really hard to understand because I feel like you could definitely interpret it in different ways. My group got section 6. This section was pretty long but it wasn’t that bad to interpret. Once I knew that grass equaled society it all started to make sense a little more. Transcendentalism affected his writing in many ways. He constantly talked about how he was trying to make himself the best he could be and he also talked about how the society is constantly trying to be better than its been. He also says that society will never grow to get better and better without everybody together trying to be the best people they could be because in order for society to grow the people have to first. I think one of the most important lines from our section is “And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.” I believe this is one of the most important lines because this ties it all together pretty much telling us that when we die at the best we could’ve made ourselves then our bodies will go to the earth and help grow and help make new generations and their societies better themselves. This line also tells us that we shouldn’t be afraid to die you should celebrate it as a ways to help the upcoming generations. So he makes you think that when you die its not pointless because you’ll always help the earth. I had multiple difficulties while reading this because I feel like I knew what was going on  but at the same time I would second guess myself and think I was going about it in all the wrong ways. So then when I finally started to understand it I really didn’t think that much into it as I should’ve Also I’m really not a fan of poetry and reading it only because you can take one poem and understand it in so many different ways so I feel like there’s never really a right answer when understanding a poem.
