I want to talk about the film „I am legend“.
First of all, the film tip is only suitable for those of you who like films with a high fear factor and thrills because it's a 2007 American science fiction horror film directed by Francis Lawrence and starring the leading actor Will Smith. The film was shot mainly in the city of New York, by the way, it includes a $5 million scene at the Brooklyn Bridge.

But now about the story: It is about Dr. Robert Neville, who seems to be the last living human in New York City and potentially the last human on earth. The reason for this is quite easy: three years ago Dr. Alice Krippin and Neville have found a remedy for cancer, but the virus mutated and killed 5.4 billion people world-wide.
Robert lives in the abandoned New York, with him is his faithful dog Samantha. During the day, the military scientists in the area on the hunt for antelope and sends radio messages in hopes to reach other survivors . At night, he barricades himself in his house to protect themself from the mutants calles darkseekers, which leave their dark caves only at night because their hairless, naked skin is sensitive to light. Really scary, isn't it? However, during this time, Dr. Robert Neville often spends his time in his laboratory where he experimented with mutated rats and searches for an remedy for the virus. But when he catch the alpha female and make experiments with her in his lab too, the mutants look for him under the leadership of the alpha male and they are more aggressive than ever ... But that's not all, because suddenly he meets two survivors, Anna and Ethan. Anna explains that they have followed his radio broadcasts and that they are making their way to a survivors' camp in Bethel, Vermont. But Robert does not believe such a camp exists and expresses doubt when Anna says God told her about it.
Whether the survivor city really exists and what happens to Neville, Anna and Ethan, I don't say anything. If you are interested, you have to watch the film.
Come to think of it, there is an alternative end, I like much better than what is provided in the movie.

In my opinion, this movie was very cool. I have always been a fan of Will Smith and loved his movies. I really think it was very well made. If you love suspense, you have to watch this movie. It keeps you on the edge of your seat most of the movie, and there are some unexpected twists. It is worth to watch this movie. I know there are many critics, but you have to make your own opinion, so what are you waiting for? You won't be sorry.…...

...seven statements that Jesus states, which are readily known as the “I am…” statements. There is an eighth claim that was also made by Jesus about Himself; when He simply states, “I am.” Theologian Elmer Towns states in his textbook, (Elmer Towns) “This is a statement of identification with Old Testament deity. Christ is implying, “I am…I am,” the self-existent One. He is claiming to be their God. The Old Testament is pointing to the coming One. Many scriptures tell that someone is coming. Who is coming? Could it be the Messiah? The people of John’s time were looking, searching, hoping for the One to come. Ray Stedman states in his commentary (Ray Stedman) “In John's day, people were stirred by the fact that John the Baptist had appeared. They asked him, "Are you the Christ?" He said, "No, but he is coming after me," and when Jesus began to preach up and down the hills of Judea and Galilee, men were saying everywhere, "Is this the One? Is this the Messiah?" The first time Jesus made this self-existent claim without explanation or without the use of a metaphor is found in John 4:26. Jesus was speaking to the Samaritan woman at the well in this scripture verse. Jesus being Deity had been telling her things about herself that no one knew. The exchange between the woman and Jesus is very telling. The Deity of Christ is examined by the woman when she states to Jesus in John 4:2, “The woman said to Him, I know that Messiah is coming, He who is called the Christ (the......

Book Review of I Am Number Four

...Book review of I am number Four The book I have been reading is I am number Four by Pittacus Lore. In I am number Four we are following the story about a young man named John Smith. I know, his name is very normal but you will understand later why he is called that. The truth is that John isn’t human – he is an alien from the planet Lorien. Ten years ago he and other eight children where fled from the planet Lorien and landed on Earth. They fled because there was another alien race, called The Mogadarians, who took over their planet and destroyed everything. These nine children are known as Legacies and as they grow into adults they acquire the same special powers as their parents were gifted with. These powers are the only thing that can stop The Mogadarians. Together with his guardian, Henri, John is traveling through America to escape facing with The Mogadarians. They can’t stay in one place for too long because then it would get easier for The Mogadarians to find them. The Mogadarians must kill every one of the nine Legacy children in order. And now they have already killed Number One, Number Two and Number Three. John is Number Four. Pittacus Lore, the author, words are very easy to understand. So for me, who speaks Swedish, had no problem understanding what it stood in the text. He also wrote very modern, no difficult words that you had to look in a dictionary. It was written as a teenage book should be. But there was something that bothered me with......

Why I Am Where I Am

...years of schooling I have always had the worst exsperience. I was teased all my years of elementry, middle school I was ignored, high school I was the "GEEK" who wore her mothers and sisters clothing. It seems like I have never had a break. I was never able to concentrate on school because I was just always worried about what everyone was saying about me. I was in and out of school, skipping class, hiding in bathrooms just to ignore the akward step of walking into a classroom. I never had anyone to talk to about these things, so I just kept everything inside of me. My mother "then", was not focused on us. She didnt wake us up in the mornings, she didnt get us ready for school, she wouldnt take us to school if we missed the bus. My second oldest sister did all of those things. If we missed the bus I remember having to run across the highway, and this is elementry and middle school days, to catch the bus before it went around the turn around. I never had someone forcing me to go to school or help me through my troubled years. I had to learn to coop on my own and get through things on my own. By the time I got into highschool i just didnt care anymore, I started hanging out with the wrong people doing things that I shouldnt have been doing having to switch schools countless times all eventually led me to just dropping out of high school. By this time, I was 18 and I was forced to live with my boyfriend and his family because of my mother kicking me out right when I turned 18.......

..."I think I am/am not an entrepreneur. I am a ... entrepreneur because...” 15/9/201 Introduction In this assignment, I will explain as to why I think I am a lifestyle entrepreneur and the reasons as to why I think I am classified as this type of entrepreneur. I will discuss what a lifestyle entrepreneur is as well as the major motivations that form an integral part of the lifestyle entrepreneur’s choice to follow the specified path. The following motivations of autonomy, family and leisure time, passion and intrinsic reward and satisfaction as well as life quality will be discussed at different stages of my assignment. I will also show how some of these motivations integrate together to form a basis for the lifestyle entrepreneur. What is a lifestyle entrepreneur? As noted by Henderson (2002:49), to support a desired lifestyle or provide a family income is reasons as to why a lifestyle entrepreneur will start a new venture. These entrepreneurs also seek independence and control over their own schedule. Whilst Mottiar (2007:67) argues that a lifestyle entrepreneur is concerned with maintaining income at a level sufficient enough to provide them and their family with adequate funds to allow them to enjoy their chosen lifestyle. As can been seen in the above, lifestyle entrepreneurs aim to make as much money as they require to live and maintain the lifestyle of their choice (Janssen-Selvadurai, 2010:187). Important components to the lifestyle entrepreneur that act as......

I Am What I Am

...“I Am What I AM” is a musical which was on shown in January in Sheung Wan Civic Centre. The story of the musical is actually a real-life story adapted from a Singapore transgender person, Abigail, about making a tough decision of being loyal to her true gender. Abigail’s frustration of whether to take the Sex Reassignment Surgery (“SRS” for short) or not was exquisitely presented in the musical, so as to communicate with the audience and encourage them to have an in-depth review about the related issue. Why Abigail hopes to be a female rather than a male? To uncover the underlying reasons, let’s start with knowing more about her life in early stage. Being born as a boy, Abigail felt that he was a girl deeply inside his mind. Liked other normal little girls, he loved playing Barbie dolls and doll’s houses. Presenting girls’ characteristics in his childhood gave him a derogatory nickname, “Girlish Boy”, which was frequently called by his classmates in primary school. Trying to conceal his female mind, Abigail always made himself looks like stronger, self-reliant through behaviors, thoughts but seems that was not successful. His classmates continued to laugh at him with offensive languages. When he grew up, he felt much more natural and comfortable to play with girls while sensed shy to play with boys. In Singapore, boys who aged 18 had to serve their duty in military. During that period, Abigail took baths in late evening after all the other soldiers took their baths. It......

...that we tend to ignore the possibility that we don’t know everything and that no prediction is failsafe when it comes to humans. Try to keep in mind that all research is relevant. Whether or not your findings are what you expect, you will find something. Believe it or not, failing to find group differences can be just as important as finding expected group differences. In fact, studies that return results in opposition to what we were hoping for, or believed would logically occur, often lead to many more great studies than we could have hoped for. After all, it could be great for the findings of your current research to act as a guiding principal to your future research… it is likely that this would require less work in terms of literature review, as you would always be familiar with at least a portion of the literature that is relevant to your latest study!...

I Hope I Am Not Dreaming

...assignment 4 I Hope I Am Not Dreaming On one sunny spring morning, I stepped out of my bed and thought to myself, when does all this end. I knew that I had to pick extra shifts at work because my mother needed some money. My mother had exactly one month to come up with 80 thousand shillings, and if not she would lose her house, that she had used as a collateral for a school loan in order for my younger brother to go to school. Mother had always taught me to be patient with time and that “Gods time wasn’t our time.” At this very minute however, it was almost impossible to still believe, “I have issues of my own, you know” I need a larger apartment, my car sounds like its going to quit any minute now, I need to see a dentist but my company has dropped my insurance coverage. I have invested my time and money into an undergraduate degree that really never change my standard of living, in fact, I am left paying off student loans with money from my old part time job. I walked to the mirror and to my shock; I could not recognize the person in the mirror. I thought this had to be a dream. I stood there for a good ten minutes thinking, how easier life would be for me if I was the woman in the mirror, Paris Hilton. She is an heir to a multimillion dollar establishment. Oh my, I love her blonde hair and skinny body, she is tall, beautiful, not too smart and not college educated but, who cares; she is wealthy. I thought to myself, I could really get used to this.

I Am Legend

...I am legend “I am Legend” is a sci-fi movie based on a brilliant military scientist, Robert Neville, whom becomes the last man on earth. He becomes the last man on earth because of a man-made untreatable virus which turns people into flesh eating zombies. He is immune to the virus and the only one who can save humanity. He spends several years trying to control the virus and also broadcasting radio signals for any other survivors. The Zombies creep around in the shadows, observing the scientist’s every move until he makes a fatal mistake. I liked this movie because the effectiveness and dialogue of it were accurate and I didn’t get lost watching all the scenes. The special effects and background coincided with what was going on throughout the movie and also appeared to be realistic. The performance of the main character, Will Smith, was phenomenal and I also felt as if I was in his shoes. Several aspects during certain scenes made the movie stand out from the thousands of movies I’ve watched. When Neville was driving around New York City with his dog Sam in a 2009 ford mustang GT500, the roar of the engine and the watchful eye of his dog following the deers symbolized modern hunting. After they got out on foot and began chasing the wild animals into the growing forest and the lions appeared out of the fields to take Neville’s priced deer gave me the idea that earth was reverting back into prehistoric times. Finally, when he sacrificed his life after he......

I Am Legend

...“I Am Legend” The plot in the movie “I Am Legend” relates closely to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The first stage of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is physiological. For a human to survive they need air, food, and water. The main character in “I Am Legend” demonstrates meeting this need by hunting wildlife in one of the first scenes. He also searches other abandoned houses or buildings for canned food to add to his supply at his house. The second stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is safety. This need includes having shelter to remain free from harm. The main character meets this need by installing extra security features on his house. He installed metal doors over his windows and doors with extra locks to prevent anything from intruding. He also meets this need by having a variety of weapons available, which he carries with him anywhere he goes. The third stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is love and belonging. The main character struggled with meeting this need in the movie. He had his dog as a companion, whom he spoke to as if he were human. He also staged manikins in different places throughout the city and talked to them as if they were alive. There were several scenes where he would broadcast in the hopes of letting others know where he could be found if they were seeking shelter. The fourth stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is self-esteem. The main character also struggled with this need. Before the epidemic he had a very powerful position in his career.......

Who Am I? Why Am I Here?

...Who Am I? My name is xxxxxxxxx and I am a woman originally born in the city of xxxxxx, xxxxx. I came to the United States at age five and I recently became xxx years old on my birthday, this past xxxx x, xxxx. As a woman of Hispanic origin, I am very rich in Latin and Central American Indian culture. I grew up with my mom and aunts speaking a derivative of Pig Latin. I have a Spanish style of cooking and mostly all my plates are xxxxxx dishes. I may have grown up in the states all my life, but I’m almost 100% rooted in Spanish customs. As a person, I identify myself as a child of God. Spiritually, I am always seeking knowledge and wisdom since I believe it comes from God. My faith is deeply rooted in my confession, that I am a spirit who will one day return to my maker. Holding such a belief has its advantages. For example, I generally do not abide by society’s norm of what I should be, or my role in life. I also believe that if I’m still here, there’s work to be done. I love to explore Biblical concepts and beliefs. As a mother I am an attentive soul. I’m always looking out for my children and their personal interest. I like to give them their space, but yet hold them accountable. I tend to be conservative with my children and do not try to push them beyond their limits. To me, being who we are and doing what we do, just as we choose whether to build a relationship with God, is a very personal matter. While most people do not like my parenting style, I think it’s......

I Am Joaquin

...Paragraph review The very first line in which caught my attention in, “I am Joaquin” by Rodolfo Corky Gonzales states, My fathers have lost the economic battle/ and won the struggle of cultural survival. /And now! I must choose between the paradox of/ victory of the spirit, despite physical hunger,/ or to exist in the grasp of American social neurosis. Although I do not agree one hundred percent in his final statement, It did manage to capture my attention nevertheless .where he specifies “won the struggle of cultural survival” it causes me to wonder, will my generation and the fore coming generation obtain the will power to retain their cultural roots? I am in question because too many Chicanos in our present day are very minimally knowledgeable about their roots and many even have difficulties speaking their native language. My counter argument in regards to, choosing between a paradox of maintaining our culture alive, to loosing it to American society is uncohesive, therefore it becomes a matter of personal choice in my personal opinion to whether preserve their cultural background and prosper simultaneously, or to substitute one for the other. Another line in which caught my attention was when Gonzales explained how he became a victim of killing and being killed. “The chattering machine guns are death to all of me:/ Yaqui /Tarahumara /Chamala /Zapotec /Mestizo /Español./The victor, /The vanquished. /I have killed /And been killed.” In this line Gonzales is......
