in action Hamlet demonstrates his commitment to
his revenge on Claudius throughout the play. His uncle had basically taken everything away from him. His throne, his mother, his father, even now their relationship has dwindled to nothing but cold shoulders. Hamlet's commitment to avenging his fathers death is justifiable to say the least Throughout McMurphy's stay at the hospital, he was dedicated to finding the patients courage and retracing their lost concept of masculinity. McMurphy's dedication had been shown to be much more than the dedication of the nurses themselves by genuinely healing a number of the patients. After Thomas A. Anderson, or Neo is enlightened about the computer-generated illusion of a life he has been living, he takes over the task of liberating others from the virtual fate brought upon them. Neo, over time, embraces the opportunity to liberate, and save others. Although skeptical, he is nonetheless ready to learn the ways of becoming the hero of the universe. Neo shows his commitment by taking the red pill, allowing him to open up his eyes to the scary reality of the coded world. After his father’s death, Simba flees the Pride Lands, scared he will be blamed after Scar implies the murderous stampede was his fault. After being found by a surprised Nala, she begs him to return to the Pride Lands, where Scar has reigned as King for years and destroyed all order. Without Simba’s commitment to take over the throne, all of the animals will starve. Simba acknowledges that he is needed in the Pride Lands and commits to fighting for his kingdom. First of all, lets meet our main characters... McMurphy is a rebellious convict sent to the asylum from a prison work farm. He is a convicted conman, gambler and rapist diagnosed as a psychopath because of “too much fighting and fucking.” Thinking it will be an easy way to serve out his sentence in comfort, McMurphy was content with this movement. Oddly, McMurphy serves as the Christ figure in the novel. He is the dominant force challenging the ward and the ultimate savior of the victimized patients. McMurphy Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark, a reflective and thoughtful young man who has studied at the University of Wittenberg. Hamlets father, had recently been killed by his own brother, Claudius, who seized the throne and married Queen Gertrude. King Hamlet's ghost appeared to Hamlet one night, ordering him to avenge his death by killing. Claudius . Hamlet is often indecisive and hesitant. Through the entire play, he procrastinates taking vengeance on his uncle. At other times he is inclined to rash and unpredictable acts. Neo, formerly known as Thomas Anderson, a computer software writer was brought out of the matrix by strangers, Morpheus and his crew to be the savior of mankind. Neo is seen to be “the one” to save the world, and has brought on many new responsibilities to try and help save the universe. Hamlet Simba Simba, the main protagonist of the film, is the son of King Mufasa. Scar, Simba’s uncle, plots to kill Mufasa and Simba so he is able to take over the throne. He uses the hyenas to cause a stampede through the canyon where Mufasa and Simba are, and personally ensures Mufasa falls to his death. Simba survives and flees from fear. Later he returns to try to defeat his uncle Scar, to become the new, rightful King of the Pride Lands. Thomas Anderson (Neo) Clearly, each of our characters have their own obstacles to overcome. Good thing we have a group of powerful individuals... Remember? With their After being given a mission of revenge by his father's ghost, Hamlet not only accepts it, but takes his mission to the next level. Hamlet believes that his mission is not only to kill Claudius, but to kill all corruption in the Kingdom. This further commitment can be seen through Hamlet's reaction after killing Polonius and being indirectly responsible for the death's of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. His reaction after realizing he had killed Polonius wasn't one of shock or regret, but Hamlet voiced his farewell to the "wretched, rash, intruding fool." McMurphy not only meets and learns about the patients to help them become stronger human beings. He started to try and understand the enemy who portrayed evil, spite, and hatred, Mrs. Ratched, to help rehabilitate the acutes. The more McMurphy knew about Mrs. Ratched and the way things work around the ward, the more he could try and manipulate the them. McMurphy was a master of finding weaknesses and used this to his advantage. McMurphy is a prime example of a courageous man who would sacrifice his stay at the ward by breaking the rules to help his fellow patients. Neo is faced with massive life altering news at the start of the movie. He learned that virtual reality was no longer just about social networking and surfing the web. The virtual reality soon became Neo's only reality. Neo needed to embrace, and practice living in the coded world to be able to contend with the invading technology. Dealing with a new reality wasn't easy for Neo and learning that he was "the one" to help keep others safe would be an overwhelming amount of information to take in. Neo in an incredibly courageous man to risk his life for others in a world he has recently learned existed. Young Simba had gone through a lot in his life, seeing his father killed and almost being killed himself. Being so afraid, Simba flees the Pride Lands in search of an escape from the reality of his past. Simba had started living a new life with his new friends Timon and Pumbaa. After being found by Nala, Simba is faced with a decision. Simba needed to decide between continuing his content life with his new friends, or returning to avenge his father and save his old community. With Scar having the nerve and strength to take out the most powerful animal in the Kingdom, Mufasa, Simba's decision to return and fight for sovereign was clearly an act of courage. Hamlet demonstrates his commitment to
his revenge on Claudius throughout the play. His uncle had basically taken everything away from him. His throne, his mother, his father, even now their relationship has dwindled to nothing but cold shoulders. Hamlet's commitment to avenging his fathers death is justifiable to say the least After his father’s death Simba flees the Pride Lands, scared he will be blamed after Scar implies the murderous stampede was his fault. After being found by a surprised Nala, she begs him to return to the Pride Lands, where Scar has reigned as King for years and destroyed all order. Without Simba’s commitment to take over the throne, all of the animals will starve. Simba acknowledges that he is needed in the Pride Lands and commits to fighting for his kingdom. Both Hamlet and Simba decide to
avenge their father's and try to kill their uncles to save their kingdoms. Both characters have been royalty for their entire lives and they can't stand to see the corruption on the throne any longer. After Thomas A. Anderson, or Neo is enlightened about the computer-generated illusion of a life he has been living, he takes over the task of liberating others from the virtual fate brought upon them. Neo, over time, embraces the opportunity to liberate, and save others. Although sceptical, he is nonetheless ready to learn the ways of becoming the hero of the universe. Neo shows his commitment by taking the red pill, allowing him to open up his eyes to the scary reality of the coded world. Throughout McMurphy's stay at the hospital, he was dedicated to finding the patients courage and retracing their lost concept of masculinity. McMurphy's dedication had been shown to be much more than the dedication by the nurses themselves by genuinely healing a number of the patients. Both Neo and McMurphy are introduced to completely new areas of life. Despite it being difficult, they also take on the role of Christ to help save others in need, as well as risking their own lives . Neo is faced with massive life altering news at the start of the movie. He learned that virtual reality was no longer just about social networking and surfing the web. The virtual reality soon became Neo's only reality. Neo needed to embrace, and practice living in the coded world to be able to contend with the invading technology. Dealing with a new reality wasn't easy for Neo and learning that he was "the one" to help keep others safe would be an overwhelming amount of information to take in. Neo in an incredibly courageous man to risk his life for others in a world he has recently learned existed. McMurphy not only meets and learns about the patients to help them become stronger human beings. He started to try and understand the enemy who portrayed evil, spite, and hatred, Mrs. Ratched, to help rehabilitate the acutes. The more McMurphy knew about Mrs. Ratched and the way things work around the ward, the more he could try and manipulate the them. McMurphy was a master of finding weaknesses and used this to his advantage. McMurphy is a prime example of a courageous man who would sacrifice his stay at the ward by breaking the rules to help his fellow patients. Both Neo and McMurphy had recently been entitled the Christ figure to save others in their own realms. Either of the characters took initiative to learn their new surroundings to gain a better understanding of how to help their threatened communities. Each character had a point in the story where they realized they were needed by others: Each of the characters had their own ability to settle their issues: Having confidence in their abilities is just as important as possessing them in the first place. Hamlet: Hamlet is a very smart man who knows how to use his intelligence to manipulate others. His extensive vocabulary, wit and ability to communicate allows him to confuse others. "Call me what instrument you will, though you can fret me, you cannot play upon me." Hamlet expresses this quote to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in order to confuse them. This quote is a great example of the way Hamlet can manipulate and distort his words to create a double meaning. In this quote, Hamlet explains that although they can be scared of him ("fret me"), they cannot take advantage of him. Hamlet knows that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are much less educated then him so he knows they will interpret this quote on litteral level, misinterpreting the entire meaning. McMurphy: McMurphy is confident in his ability to single-handedly battle the repressive establishment and save the patients. Neo: Although once human, Neo eventually starts to believe in the chance of him being "the one" to save mankind. Neo undergoes virtual combat training that helps his self-confidence tremendously. Learning to hack into the Matrix and re-enter the simulated reality to manipulate its physical laws was the backbone to Neo's confidence and directly leads to his successes in the constructed universe. "What do you think you are, for Chrissake, crazy or somethin'? Well you're not! You're not! You're no crazier than the average asshole out walkin' around on the streets and that's it." This quote represents McMurphy's assurance in defending the patients. Not only is this a representation of his assurance, it's also a part of the patients rehabilitation. This reference is a very true fact that just because the patients are viewed as insane, they are far from hopeless. There are many people in the world that have had specific problems resulting in a difficult time functioning in everyday in society. McMurphy proves that to succeed in living a successful life, they must unravel their puzzling problems first. In this clip, Neo's ability to see, judge and act to the agents has improved greatly. His confidence shows through his aggressive demeanor, and his capability of taking out multiple agents at once. Neo's ability to dodge the agents bullets is an impressive sign of his ability to manipulate the physical laws of the matrix. Although he has improved, Neo is still learning and is caught in a moment of despair when the agent has his gun to Neo's head while explaining he is still "only human". Simba Masculinity, sexual expression as well as individuality, is viewed as the key to someones sanity throughout the story. Many of the patients have a warped or lost sense of sexuality due to past damaging relationships. Billy Bibbit explains the time when he proposed to the women he loved. It is then brought up that his proposal led him to his first suicide attempt, Billy's first sign of insanity. Through the entire story, the idea of desexualizing and withdrawing patients individuality is threatened as punishment though lobotomy. With the powerful effects of a lobotomy such as slowed up in thinking and acting, lacking in emotional expression and a reduction in interest and energy; the ward is threatening the horrible effects they are already trying to cure. Through the events of the play, Hamlet is faced with the impossibility of certainty. Hamlet often postpones and procrastinates taking revenge on Claudius to obtain more knowledge. Hamlet is obsessed with and afraid of the after life, and feels that if he acts too quickly and kills an innocent Claudius, he will go to hell. The possibility of spending his after life in hell is the same reason why he ceases his thoughts of suicide. Hamlets hesitation of killing Claudius is shown when he has the perfect opportunity to kill him while he confesses to the murder of King Hamlet. Hamlet, being scared of sinning, is now faced with a new problem. Now that Claudius has confessed to the murder of King Hamlet, he needs to find a new sin Claudius commits to faithfully commit the murder of Claudius. Simba not only needs to be confident enough to physically beat Scar to gain power of the Pride Lands, but he also needs to be a powerful leader to help solve the problems caused by Scar's involvement as sovereign. At first, Simba was very unsure of his ability to take Scar's position to help save the Pride Lands, but later gains the confidence to confront his slayer of an uncle. Simba demonstrates his uncertainty in returning to the pride lands to help his old community. When Simba overcomes his fears and uncertainties of returning to the Pride Lands, he decides to try and take over Scar's power. Simba's confidence directly leads to his later successes in the story. Each of the characters required self-assurance in their own abilities to ensure the desired outcome. Hamlet: Confident in his ability to kill all corruption in the court by mischievously learning about his fathers death through others using his unique and trained sense of communication. McMurphy: McMurphy is confident in his ability to restore some patients sanity through their expression of sexuality, individuality and happiness. He attempts to do this by standing up against the ward and Mrs. Ratched to try and make some changes. This is something nobody has tried to do before in the ward. Neo: Neo is confident in the idea that he is "the one" to help save mankind. He overcomes the news that he has been living a simulated life, and takes on the role of humanity's savior. Although seemingly hopeless, his training and commitment has shown to make great improvements in his ability to live in the matrix to battle the powerful agents. Simba: After Simba looks up to the sky and remembers that his father told him the past kings of Pride Lands will always be in the sky to guide him, he calls out to the stars and his father appears and convinces him to take his rightful place as King. Simba was then certain he would return to the Pride Lands to seize authority and save his old community. and some took some time: Neo took a few pep talks, training sessions and time living in the matrix to grasp the concept of him truly being "the one" to save the world. It took Simba almost the entire story to realize he was the one to help save the Pride Lands. From the help of his father's spirit, Simba was convinced to return to his old community to help return order. some took no time at all: From the beginning, Hamlet was convinced Claudius was the murderer of his father. Although Hamlet procrastinated the murder of Claudius often, he always kept the revenge on mind. Hamlet never let his guard down and was always prepared for upcoming situations. From the moment McMurphy walked into the mental hospital, he realized the patients in the ward are in desperate need of relief from the Big Nurse's restraint. McMurphy's care for nothing more than a good time was a healthy influence to all the patients who were deprived of this lifestyle due to the wards policy. He gave the patients hope and slowly but surely gave them back their pride that the Big Nurse brutally took away. Each of the characters, at one point or another have a realization that their help is needed. These realizations were the beginning of their... throughout the stories. Hamlet procrastinated the murder of Claudius Hamlets indecisiveness proved to be his biggest weakness throughout the play. His hesitation to kill Claudius ultimately sabotaged his consistency in action resulting in his death at the end of the play. If Hamlet would have stuck to his plan from the beginning and killed Claudius during the many chances he had, he probably would have survived the story. To obtain these 5 C's, each character needed to have capable mental and physical health: Each character needed to deal with an opposing force, endangering their ability to succeed... Such as a patient dealing with an invading viral infection. Each story had a representation of the body's immune system: Hamlet is the immune system of Denmark. He will fight off any corruption in the monarch. McMurphy is the immune system of the insane asylum. He will battle against the controlling ways of the ward. Neo is the immune system of the matrix. Battling the invading machines. Simba is the immune system of the Pride Lands. Fighting against the interfering Scar. Here is an example of a virus- free blood stream: It's like Denmark without Claudius. The asylum without Mrs. Ratched. The Matrix without the agents. And the Pride Lands without Scar. But we all get sick sometimes... and we need help from our immune systems to battle the virus. But sometimes our immune system isn't quite strong enough to kill off the virus. Not only does Billy show his emotions for the girl he loved, he reveals something about his mother. Billy's inability to talk to his mom about the women he asked to marry him, shows something is askew with their relationship. Throughout the story it becomes evident that Billy's mother doesn't allow him to develop sexually; another reason for Billy's insanity. And we need a little help from some antibiotics The same way antibiotics help fight off any infection... The 5 C's help the characters battle the opposing force. 5 C's
