Reflection Paper about Supremo

Supremo is a Filipino movie which shows the Spanish era in the Philippines and how the Philippines fought for its independence. Andres Bonifacio was the main character of the movie because it focused on how the Katipunan, which was led by Bonifacio, formed and struggled to fight the Spanish military even though they were severely disadvantaged in terms of training and weaponry. The film also showed the devastation it left in the Philippines after the Filipino-Spanish war.

The film started started out by showing Andres Bonifacio’s wife dead and a brief introduction of his past. Afterwards, a small action happened while he was helping some of his fellowmen travel into the city since their house burnt down but they were harassed and attacked by the Spanish military for not bringing their cedulas. Just by seeing this, the film wants to show us how oppressive the Spanish military were and even if their excuse for not bringing their cedulas were valid, they took advantage of them by trying to search their items even when they said that they will just go back which led to bloodshed. I think they just want to express their dominance over the Filipinos and show us that they can do whatever they want to us. To support this idea, there was also a part where they publicly killed a Filipino after judging him guilty for trying to kill a military official and said that may it be a warning to all who would think of going against the government.

I really liked how they showed the suffering of the Filipinos and how they struggled to fight for freedom. The movie showed a point of view where we understood how the Filipinos thought and why they decided to form and join the Katipunan. They felt like they were being cornered and they had no other option but to fight back. It also portrayed how Bonifacio’s stuborness led to his downfall. The film…...

Reflection Paper

...Art Reflection Paper Pop Culture and the Arts October 10, 2011 Art Reflection paper Art can be expressed in many ways. Art is seen in every aspect of our lives. The way people dress, wear their hair, makeup, and even the type of car they drive is a form of art. Artist use various ways to express art by the way they dray, the colors they use, creativity , and the style that they use to create fullness or dullness in the pictures. In this paper, I will discuss what art means to me. Next, I will elaborate on how art and culture relate. Finally, I will give two examples that illustrate how art and American culture relate. What Art Means to Me I think that art is a representation of a person’s inner feelings at that particular time. Art is more than just a painting on a canvass, it can be the lyrics of a song, the clothes that a person wears, a play, a poem, and even a hairstyle can be a form of art. Art is not something that can be duplicated or copied in its entirety. For example s writer can write a book and then a producer make a movie out of the book but the two will not be the same. How Does Art and Culture Relate Culture and art relate because art is formed and developed based on a person’s culture. Each culture has a certain style, certain foods that they eat, and a certain way they behave. Art is influenced by cultures. Different cultures have different views and often see the world differently from others. The quote “beauty is in the eye of the......

Reflection Paper

...Genesis Reyes Soc 101 Small Section Christine Payne 28 January 2010 Reflection Paper 1 I was born into a middle class family that lives within one of the most smallest and “hick” towns known to mankind. About 20,000 people populate little Hollister, California. Right about now, there might be thoughts going through your head of “ Oh Hollister, like the store?” No, I do not live in a clothing store. Hollister is actually the exact opposite of what it is believed to be by the advertising of the clothing store. Nonetheless, there is only one local high school that serves the whole San Benito County, which not only includes Hollister, but a few other cities as well. When I graduated this past year in June, there were 1,639 students in my graduating class. Each day when I attended school, even from the beginning of my high school career starting from when I was a freshman, the class sizes would never be less then 40 students. If sticking to the idea that 25 students per classroom is ideal for student centered learning, San Benito High School is obviously lacking in this area. Now that I begin to think of my high school classroom experiences, they were never fun. My history classes would seriously; give handouts that would be filled with just a list of dates and my instructor would tell the class to memorize them. Little to none of a story was ever told in regards to any important historical event. I never found myself to ever genuinely be excited to attend class because of...

Jose Rizal the Movie Reaction Paper

...JOSE RIZAL THE MOVIE Reaction Paper Heroes are not about persons having super powers or super strength just to save other people’s life. But it’s about how you make sacrifices and giving everything you have without any hesitation. The movie Jose Rizal is a 1998 biographical film of the Philippine National Hero directed by Marilou Diaz-Abaya. This movie shows what the real meaning of “patriotism” that was being inculcated in our minds until now. It also shows how noble person Rizal is. It focuses on the condition of society and government at the time of Spanish Colonization in our country. With the use of the written novels of Rizal (Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo), the Filipinos have awaken to the abusive ways and discrimination of Spaniards towards Filipinos. It really gave the picture on how the Spaniards treat us in our own country and rule the government with their own ways. Dominican Friars symbolizes justice and should be followed. Because of that Dr. Jose Rizal started the war by awakening the hearts of his people through his malicious works that gets the attention of Spanish Government and triggers the Filipino people to fight for their own discretion. It shows that being brave is not about killing others but also using the power of mind through writing. The movie had successfully showed the characteristics of a Filipino like being brave in their own way and patriotism. And the most important for Rizal was to give his country the freedom and justice until......

Spanglish Movie Reflection

...Spanglish Movie Reflection This paper examines the movie "Spanglish", which portrays the culture difference in a Mexican woman and a white woman. Some of the characters in the movie were Flor Moreno (Paz Vega) is a poor, Mexican single mother who is hired as the housekeeper for a rich American family in Los Angeles: John (Adam Sandler) and Deborah Clasky (Téa Leoni), their kids Bernice (Sarah Steele) and Georgie (Ian Hayland), and Deborah's alcoholic mother Evelyn Wright (Cloris Leachman). It looks at how "Spanglish" is a film rendering the positions of women with the countless problems they have in today's society including tribulations in racial discrimination, domesticity, poor wages, preteens and body image and low self-esteem. My reflections will compare the differences such as collectivist and individualistic culture, high-context and low-context, high-power distance and low-power distance, and masculine and feminine roles. I would first off like to talk about how most Spanish cultures raised their children to become independent and collectivist. Individualistic are self assured and very independent people and collectivist emphasizes family and work group goals above individual needs or desires. They learn how to survive for them selves, and I feel as if this is a good way of life because in today generation most adults just go running to their parent when things get tough. The current generation is not use to being taught how to be independent. In the movie......

Reflection Paper: Film "Heneral Luna"

...Reflection Paper: Film “Heneral Luna” #KM2015 The film, “Heneral Luna”, 2015 is a Filipino historical biopic film about General Antonio Luna. It is indeed one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. The cinematography, cast, writing is really wonderful and realistic, although the language used is not what I expected because it looks too modern. The film shows the point of view of Gen. Antonio Luna in the system of the Philippines in the American invasion period. Furthermore, the movie carries joy, laughter, sorrow, grief, conflicts, and realizations especially when it became an eye opener for me. As an ‘International Studies’ student, it’s typical for us to have some interest in different culture other than us although I never actually detest our culture. However, with this film I observe a lot of admirable actions as well as a lot of flaws in our country all the way from the late 18th century. I also noticed that the Philippine government in the past greatly resembles the government issues in the present, just like how the cabinet members prefers to be under the power of United States to aim more money and superiority in their own state. Gen. Antonio Luna deserves to be one of our heroes. He showed great bravery, intelligence and he also became an inspiration to our fellow men during and even after the war. He really holds superior power and can lead people to follow him. The general also believes that no one is above the law even the highest ranking official or......

Reflection on Movie Teachers Diary

...Reflection: Teacher’s Dairy One of the things that a future teacher should keep in mind is that “Teacher should never stop learning”. It will always retain in my mind since the day he became my professor. Watching movies, reading books as well the techniques he is doing in the class will retain in my mind. This is where I started getting out of my box. He wanted her students to get out their box. Explore beyond limits. I believe that this is his strategies and techniques. Teachers Diary was the title of the film because the story revolves about the diary of Ana who happens to be a previous teacher in a rural area in Thailand where the school is located in the middle of river where there is no electricity, no internet, as well as cell phone signal. This Diary becomes an inspiration to the present teacher “Teacher Song” all the physical difficulties and yet again facing loneliness, a loneliness that is outlined by what becomes the symbol of the two main characters, with Teacher Song finding Ann’s diary and immediately identifying himself in her, with all the troubles, all the challenges that had to be faced in order to survive. The universal truth about teaching was explained here in this movie that though we are now in the 21st century there are some places that were not noticed to have a better way of education. Living in rural areas was also a big challenge when building a better education both for the people who lived here and for the teachers that will adjust their...

Movie Reflection

...The Rainmaker Extra Credit Paper From the first couple minutes of the film I was shocked at how illegally both the defendant and plaintiff lawyers would act. They would cross the line so many times, trying to twist the truth to make their side of the story sound better than the others. It began to seem like both sides eventually convinced themselves that they were right. In midst of all the conniving that was going on, I was a fan of the way Rudy (Matt Damon) acted by following the rules in order to win his case. Although there was still lying done on their side (mainly just to throw off their opponent lawyers and cause them to believe something happened when it really didn’t) Rudy was never the one to actually commit the act. He would always stay true to the case while forming meaningful connections with his clients. I liked how Rudy would stay true to his word when he spoke to his clients, which is why he was probably so successful in his first case. I previously had imagined the legal system ran in a similar way, but this assumption was based off shows that are much more unrealistic. The movie strengthened the picture I had forming in my head how lawyers don’t like to play by the rules. It proved that they would try to hide evidence from the opposing side that would be perfectly fair to present in court, even going to the extent to shifting around witnesses. In addition to the illegal acts of the lawyers, the movie confirmed the imagine I had of an active courtroom......

Movie Reflection

...Extra Credit: Electric Shadows Reflection The film makes me recall my childhood and my parents’ childhood. It descried a story in a town of Northwest China happened between 1970s and 1980s. At that time, people could only watch the outdoor movie that cemented by celluloid. This film covers the family love, romantic love between two generations and friendship. Also, it gives me a strong feeling of how the Chinese cultural revolution have changed the people’s lives and ideas. From what I learned from the “brief history of China” and Spence’s “the search for modern China”, Mao wanted and desired equal outcomes for all people. Even though the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution caused millions deaths, and it was a miserable failure; it brought fundamental changes to China such as family structure, rural people’s immigration, landscape and so on (Spence & “Brief Story of China”). As shown in the film, the first obvious change is technology. During the Ling Ling’s mother wedding day, there was a small black-white TV as a wedding gift. Everybody were interested in the TV because it was the first time they saw a TV. Later on, the stage of playing celluloid movie was destroyed because everybody were start watching movies at home (Xiao). I felt sad when I saw the scene. I remembered I saw the outdoor celluloid movie when I was young. Me and other kids came very early and sat on the first row. Even though the comfortable chairs were provided, we had no worries of......

John Q Movie Reflection Paper

...Another movie based on the inhumane effects of our privatized health care system. I was not expecting the type of movie that it was, especially what John decides to do in order to save his son’s life. By now, I have seen two movies on the healthcare system that have truly amazed me and have left me with powerful messages about what we don’t see daily within our so-called expensive health care system. This movie reminded me of the struggles that those within poorer communities suffer from: lack of healthcare coverage. In comparison, to Patch Adams this movie had a much more dramatic effect to capture the battle between loved ones and saving lives. Furthermore, it captures every part of what actual society would go through if their loved ones were denied entry into a list for heart transplants. I think that this movie serves as another reminder of what we still need to improve in our health care. But see I feel that it’s not only our health care that needs fixing but those within it seem to lack of compassion for families of this sort, who cannot pay for their medical expenses. This movie portrays the most frustrating issue that I’ve seen up to this point in several health care movies and that is the inhumane and materialistic ways that doctors handle their medical attention. I think that this really gives me a new outlet on part of why a nationalized health care is not being considered by the AMA (American Medical Association); these doctors just want their money. These......
