What is the theme of the movie?
It is a 1993 American drama film about Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saved the lives of more than a thousand (1100) Polish Jewish refugees during the Holocaust of World War II by employing these people in his factories. Oskar is just like most men. He has a love for good wine, beautiful women, and pursues happiness through the success of his business. But on his journey to a successful business, millions of Jews (6 millions) were being killed during a time which most label as one of the darkest periods of human history.

What does “Schindler’s List” stand for?
It stands for the Jewish workers that Schindler bought from the German officer, Goeth, to work in his factory, the 1100 Jewish people that he saved eventually.

Who were the best performing characters of the movie?
Liam Neeson does well (as Oskar Schindler), but in particular I liked Ben Kingsley (as Istak Stern, Schindler's accountant) and Ralph Fiennes (as Amon Goeth, the camp commandant). All of the performances were very convincing and reflect the good casting.

What was the color of the movie?
The color of the movie was mostly in black and whit. Black and white give a historical connotation to the movie which in my opinion made it very distinctive. There were a very few colorized scenes though (the Jews praying at the beginning/ the Jews putting small rocks on Schindler’s grave)

Why do we still make movies about world war II?
The story of the Holocaust needs to be told over and over again, in hopes that future generations can understand the horrors perpetrated on an entire race of people and prevent such future occurrences.

How is the movie in general?
The making of this film took over a decade of preparation and it was well worthy the time spent. Schindler's List not only entertained but also educated and amazed millions of viewers with strong…...

Bucket List

...The Bucket List Erica BSHS 342 October 15, 2012 The Bucket List Corporate billionaire Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers have nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room together, they decide to leave it and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their bucket list. In the process, both of them heal each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find joy in life. Edward (Jack Nicholson) is used to living a lavish life and it showed in the hospital scene. His personal assistant Thomas (Sean Hayes) comes every morning and makes him his usual espresso and is taking care of all his personal matters. Edward has the mentality that nothing bad happens to him and he seems to be in a state of denial about his cancer. He comes off at first as a not so nice person. As time progresses on we see a different side of him. He comes off cold to Carter in the beginning and it isn’t until the Bucket Lists come into play that they start to have a friendship. Carter (Morgan Freeman) has lived a hard working man’s life, is married and has grown children. Carter seems like your usual family guy that has the supportive wire and family. He has a wife that wants to make sure that he has the best care he can get. He has come to terms that he has cancer and that his day may be numbered. He expects nothing more than what he had received as care at the hospital. Edward on the other...

The List

...The List Story by 10/16/2013 I find myself on the ledge of a building with two of his thugs grabbing me. I think to myself how did I get here? Should I have done what I did? Is this the end? I should start from the beginning. I grew up in a wealthy house hold. My father was well known for breakthroughs in the technology field. He was working on many projects but the one that made him a multi-millionaire was the work in self-sustaining energy. When I was eighteen, my father and I went on a trip to China, a trip that would change our lives forever. It was a pretty quiet plane ride. Dad was working on his laptop and I was listening to music. I noticed there was a very bad storm out of the window. The plane was shaking. Suddenly the lights went out and the oxygen masks deployed. Something hit my head. The next thing I know we are in the water and my dad is yelling my name. I see him in the distance swimming towards me. He gets to me and gives me his life vest. He tells me that I have to survive, that his company isn’t what I thought it was. He gives me a book with a list of names and tells me that everyone on that list has done terrible things to stay rich, and that he is no different. He told me stories of how he and the people on this list got wealthy by stepping on the necks of the poor. That he has had people hurt or killed to keep his company on top. He stayed with me as long as he could but as time went by he got weaker. He couldn’t...

Schindlers List - Historic Analysis

...[SCHINDLER’S  LIST  BY  KAREN  JØRGENSEN]   1 Schindler’s List The movie, by Steven Spielberg, stretches over 6 years, from 1939 to 1945, at the beginning World War II to the end of the Nazi regime. The movie follows Oskar Schindler, a Nazi made famous by saving 1.100 Jews from Auschwitz IIBirkenau. In 1939, the Nazis relocated the Polish Jews to the Krakow Ghetto, divided into two sections: A (Jews able to work) and B (Elderly and the infirm) as World War II began. Oskar Schindler comes to town in hopes that he can make money on the war, and he starts out by making many important Nazis his friends. Schindler starts up an Enamelware fabric, using Jews instead of Poles, because they are cheaper. He hires Izthak Stern, a Jewish accountant, to basically run his business, and as Stern hired the Jews, he made sure they were made Essential Workers, meaning they would be spared from concentration camps and/or death. Amon Goeth arrives in Krakow, where he will be overseeing Plazów concentration camp, a camp for the Jews of the Krakow Ghetto. Goeth orders the Krakow Ghetto section B to be exterminated and sends the section A Jews to Plazów. Schindler watches as the Nazis kills and terrorizes the Jewish Ghetto and obviously gains sympathy. Schindler befriends Goeth and talks/bribes him into letting some of the Jews work in his factory/sub-camp, this allows Schindler to both have his business run smoothly (by the help of Stern, who also helps Schindler bribe SS...

Schindler's List

...Schindler’s List During the 1940’s the Holocaust stood in full effect, taking millions of Jews and placing them in concentration camps. By the end of the Holocaust the Nazi’s had killed over 6 million Jews. Resulting in only a small population of four thousand Jews left in Poland today, but to this day a generation of six thousand Jews lives because of one man. This man took into his safety 1,100 Jews, keeping them alive past the Holocaust, allowing them to grow and start new lives. In the movie Schindler’s List directed by Steven Spielberg, Oskar Schindler risks his life to save the Jews not only for his own egotistical needs, but to also help the Jews he has come to know. For Oskar Schindler, saving the Jews comes as an act of egotism, saving them for his own personal gain. In the beginning, Oskar solely operates on popularity, gaining his power and prosperity in this manner. The movie introduces Oskar as a “victimizer” (Ebert), gaining his popularity by conning and bribing the Nazi’s. By giving the Nazi officers lavishing gifts such as champagne and cigars, Oskar works his way up the social ladder, making himself quite known in the Nazi community. In addition, with this respect, Schindler starts to use his power and popularity to his own advantage. As commented in Ebert’s review, because of Oskar’s popularity the “authorities are happy to help him open a factory to build enameled cooking utensils that army kitchens can use.” This allows Oskar to set up his factory...

The Bucket List

...The bucket list The Bucket List; what can I say? The Bucket List is a movie starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson about the exploits in life they never got to accomplish and set out to do so after discovering they were going to die. It is an interesting take on death and how to deal with death. It shows many different viewpoints on the subject of death not just from the view of Edward (Nicholson) or Carter (Freeman.) This movie really makes you think about how you live your life. The Bucket List was considered one of the most uplifting movies of the year. These men both view death in different ways. Carter in the beginning accepted death; if he did not accept death yet the movie would have been over fairly quick. You can tell he accepted death because he started writing his bucket list as a metaphorical contract that states he has given his life and is ready to die. However towards the end of the movie it seems Carter has no longer accepted death because he refuses to go back home to his family after starting the list. I think he feels this way because he thinks when he gives up on the list that will signify the end. Edward in the beginning does not accept death he refuses to deal with funeral arrangements and the passing down of his possessions. Towards the end Edward realizes that his life has been fulfilled not from completing the list but truly finding a lifelong friend in Carter. It makes you wonder how different these men’s lives would be if they were not to...

Schindlers List

...Character types in Schindlers list: Oskar Schindler: Oskar Schindler, war profiteer, womanizer, and Nazi Party member, becomes the unlikely hero and savior of about 1,100 Polish Jews during the Holocaust. He is essentially a con artist and moderately successful businessman who recognizes the potential for profit in wartime. He buys a formerly Jewish-owned enamelware factory and uses bribery and ingratiation to procure military contracts to make war supplies. At the beginning of his quest to become rich, he is indifferent to the Jewish situation, which he sees as merely an unfortunate result of war. A playboy with a large ego, Schindler routinely cheats on his wife and joins the Nazi Party not for ideological reasons but because it will help him make more money. Although he purchases the factory after it has been confiscated from Jewish owners and is given an apartment appropriated from wealthy Jews, Schindler feels no remorse and does not consider the origins of his good fortune. Schindler, initially concerned only with himself and the success of his moneymaking scheme, undergoes a change that prompts him to spend his fortune to save the lives of those he once exploited. His motive is never completely clear—and indeed, the real Schindler never revealed his motivations. However, the film does suggest that at least one of his incentives was obvious: Schindler simply could not sit by and watch people he knew be sent to death. His metamorphosis from a man of indifference to...
