El Paso, Texas Posted 25 March - There are some amazing films from that era, as I'm sure Quinten would be keen to tell you.
What I say [about carpetbaggers and scalawags] is said in no caviling temper. Whether to the debit or credit side, it must go to the account not of South Carolina nature in particular, but of human nature in general.
No doubt the inhabitants of every other community in the world would in similar circumstances have acted as South Carolinians did. Take Massachusetts, for instance, the State which in those days and for two generations before was cross-matched with South Carolina in the harness of American politics.
Suppose the Confederacy had triumphed in the Civil War. Suppose it had not been satisfied with establishing secession of the Southern States, but had forcibly annexed the other States to the Confederacy under provisional governments subordinate to the Confederate authorities at Richmond.
Suppose that in pursuit of this policy the Confederacy had placed Southern troops in Massachusetts, established bureaus in aid of foreign-born factory hands, unseated Massachusetts officials, and disenfranchised all voters of that aristocratic Commonwealth of New England who rejected an oath of allegiance they abhorred.
Suppose also that the same uncongenial folk were administering national functions under the patronage of a triumphant Confederate government at Richmond — the post offices, custom houses, internal revenue offices and all the rest.
And suppose that this had been forcibly maintained by detachments of the victorious Confederate army, some of the garrisons being composed of troops recruited from alien-born factory hands. Suppose moreover that there had been sad memories in Boston, as there were in fact in Charleston, of a mournful occasion less than ten years before, when the dead bodies of native young men of Brahmin breed to a number equaling 1 in of the entire population of the city had lain upon a Boston wharf, battlefield victims of that same Confederate army now profoundly victorious.
And suppose that weeds had but recently grown in Tremont Street as rank as in an unfarmed field, because it had been in range of Confederate shells under a daily bombardment for two years.
If my suppositions do not reach the imagination, try to picture a conquest of your own State by Canada, and fill in the picture with circumstances analogous to those in which South Carolina was plunged at the time of which I write.On Metacritic, which assigns a rating out of based on reviews from critics, the film has a score of 86 (out of ) based on 44 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim", thus making it Spielberg's highest rated film on the site since Saving Private Ryan.
Saving Private Ryan Journal By coco chen The movie Saving Private Ryan is an epic war film that based on Normandy Landing in WWII. This famous battle was happened on June 6, to mid- July, between American and Germany. Ok. and "Saving Private Ryan" is a pretty minor war movie as well?
The movie that veterans of the Normandy invasions themselves, say is the most realist war film ever made is a"Minor" war film?
A movie that won 51 prestigous film awards including 5 Oscars, is a "Minor" war film? My personal favorite moments are when Friedman views the "Indiana Jones" trilogy as a satire and even an indictment on masculine behavior and when Friedman writes about his e-mail argument with Frank P.
Tomasulo over "Saving Private Ryan". It also shows that Spielberg's Reviews: 5. was the best Spielberg film i'd seen in several years, i kid you not. For me, Spielberg went cold ever since the overrated Saving Private Ryan (a sentimental dud of a movie with two excellent battle scenes, although it did inspire the far better Band of Brothers).
Schindler´s List , Saving Private Ryan ) usually revolve around an analysis of how successfully Spielberg manipulates historical reenactment to elicit emotional response.
