Watching the movie, then searching the cinematic aspects of the film, and also searching the gothic elements from the films using the cinematic aspect.
When Ponyboy and Two-Bit go to visit Johnny in the hospital, he asks them to buy him a new copy of Gone with the Wind, since the old one burned in the church. When Johnny dies, he leaves his copy of the book to Ponyboy. Ponyboy links Johnny and Dally s deaths to Gone with the Wind , as he considers how they died gallant. He can only think of Southern gentlemen with big black eyes in blue jeans and T-shirts, Southern gentlemen crumpling under street lights.
In Chapter 9, when the boys jump off the train in Windrixville, Ponyboy notices that the clouds were pink and meadow larks were singing. He thinks to himself, This is the country. My dream s come true and I m in the country. But later, as he looks for someone to ask directions from, he thinks to himself, I was in the country, but I knew I wasn t going to like it as much as I d thought I would.
The exchange rate remained stable, but progression in monetary aggregates has started to increase. Available reports show that money growth fell in mid-fiscal year 7558, but subsequently picked up again, with broad and replacement money growth exceeding 67% in May 7558. The government has developed a culture of stability that is intensely supported by the international donor community. But because of the volatility of the political process, there are hardly any institutional safeguards that would strengthen a free culture of stability.
In Chapter 8, while Ponyboy and Johnny lie in the vacant lot watching the stars, Ponyboy dreams of the country as a place where everything is right in the world. In his fantasy, his parents are alive again, and Darry no longer has that cold, hard look he is like he used to be, eight months ago, before Mom and Dad were killed. Johnny comes to live with Ponyboy s family in the county, and Ponyboy s mother even convinces Dally Winston that there was some good in the world after all.
The conflict between Socs and Greasers is introduced in Chapter 6, and escalates throughout the book. The Greasers are poorer than the Socs and the middle class. almost like hoods we steal things and rive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations and have a gang fight once in a while. In contrast, the Socs are the jet set, the West-side rich kids, who jump greasers and wreck houses and throw beer blasts for kicks, and get editorials in the paper for being a public disgrace one day and an asset to society the next.
Watching the sunset becomes a link between the world of the Greasers and that of the Socs, and also hints at the kind of personality that questions things, that is always searching, that is in a way poetic.
As the gang leaves the house to go to the rumble in Chapter 9, Soda begins the role playing game by shouting: I am a greaser. I am a JD and a hood. I blacken the name of our fair city. I beat up people. I rob gas stations. I am a menace to society. Man, do I have fun! The game allows the gang mebers to get excited about their rumble, but at the same time reveals how conscious they are of their appearance to the rest of society. Appearance is what defines them and what sets them apart it is both boon and stumbling block.
Ponyboy and Johnny stay at the church for about a week, during which time they cut off their long Greaser hair as a disguise and subsist mainly on baloney. Dally comes to meet them eventually, and takes them out to get burgers. While they are out, Johnny decides to turn himself in. But when the characters get back to the church, they find it s on fire. A school group had been having a picnic there, and some children are trapped inside. Ponyboy and Johnny run in and save the children, but Johnny is caught across the back by a burning piece of timber.
Johnny steps in and stops Dally from harassing Cherry. Dally doesn't react because he loves Johnny like a brother.. Johnny is also "the gang's pet." Everyone looks out for him.
In that spirit, Donald Trump 8767 s presidency is likely to be a real-life horror movie for many millions of Americans, as well as people around the world. What Trump and his minions do not understand is that unlike in 8775 The Walking Dead 8776 or a Romero film, their enemies are not mindless automatons. We think. We resist. We organize. We struggle. And yes, we fight back.
Darry and Ponyboy find Soda in the vacant lot, and he tells them he can t stand how they fight all the time, since they ll only survive if they stick together. All they have is each other. Darry and Ponyboy hadn t realized their fighting upset Soda so much, and they vow to get along and take care of each other. Ponyboy has to decide what to write about for his semester theme in English class, and he decides to write The Outsiders as a warning to other boys at risk to turn their lives around before it s too late.
