Schindler’s List

This is a film that entails the behind the scenes occurrences during the Second World War, a time when manslaughter was a tradition, an ethical standard of ensuring that superiority of one race against others was established. It is a story of Schindler, a wealthy Nazi member who owned a factory through a strategic means of investing with Jewish people whose capacity was limited in holding businesses. He convinces them to spend in his factory and later he employs the Jewish as the laborers in the factory. Due to the Nazi rule, the restrictions of the Jewish population is enforced, and they are moved to satellite camping sites once they are rendered unfruitful to labor force for the Nazi. Schindler develops compassion and instead, foregoes the virtues of the Nazi rule and offers care, an ethical perspective to the Jewish population working in his factory.

The success of the themes of the film emanates from the critical thinking ideology of utilizing a Nazi member, born and raised under the moral constructs of the community about racism as a moral value, to enforce an uprising of the oppressed inferior population. Although the approach promotes humanism amongst communities, defects, on the other hand, to demonstrate repercussion for those sacrificed, living in the concentration camps and the livelihood of the different childhood of individuals from inferior and superior communities. In this film, the trajectory of a juxtaposition facilitates the achievement of the primary objective. The use of critical thinking in particular philosophical situations such as the use of a wealthy Nazi member to protect the lives of Jewish, considered the laborers and irrelevant and exhausting his entire wealth as a worthwhile sacrifice while foregoing the critical measure of the experiences of the Jewish on the receivership end of the cruelty of the Nazis depicts of an outcome ethical construct that a few can be sacrificed in aim of protecting the lives of the majority and their future as well.

American History X

American History X is a storyline about two brothers from a white family whose encounters with other races but results in nasty outcomes, a lethal blend of the factor of critical assessment of the various ethical pillars. Derek and Danny grow up in a racist family that their father despises the Blacks and becomes even an extreme outcome once a gang of the Black Americans murders their father. Once the elder brother, Derek, is sentenced to three years in prison, he gets to interact with the blacks’ gangs in prison and from the experiences and the news about his brother, Danny, following in the same footsteps, he changes his beliefs, principles in an aim of achieving a better outcome. He values and treasures all races, and it becomes much evident once his younger brother is involved in a fight and is killed by a young black student in school, but he foregoes revenging and forgives, a priceless virtue.

The movie embraces critical thinking philosophy under different dimensions and portals. One of the entrances is the influence of childhood experiences towards the adulthood behavior, that as much as a child ethically grow up in a family setup, the actions rather than the lessons at that time play a considerable part in a child but once an adult, with exposure, the teachings rather than the actions play the role of a peaceful life experience. This is demonstrated substantially through a creative, emotionally founded ending that compromises the resolutions of the brothers towards one of them falling in the trap similar to their father’s demise. The endurance is an outcome of blending morals, principles, care as well as virtues to foster humanity of interpersonal relationships.

Mississippi Burning

The title of the movie purely postulates the degrading ethical construct of the Mississippi community, a community whose morals and principles contrast towards beneficial outcomes. A society of mediocrity, inequality alienates the elite individuals towards the misplaced perspectives of ethics. It entails a line of a story by which three change-driven members of the Mississippi society invest their time and resources towards ensuring that the Blacks population get their voting rights as a means to enhance justice. However, their efforts are cut short through their murders, and the act is covered. Two agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations are charged with the responsibility, and although they lack cooperation from the community members, they finally find commemoration of their sendoffs celebrates justice for the murdered victims and an appreciation of the ethical practice by African Americans in Mississippi.

It is a movie just like Schindler’s List, utilizes the contrasting and juxtaposition of the ethical baselines to bring out the thematic pillars of the film. This is evident when the entire community plays the role of antagonist while the three murdered victims play the protagonist through the battle ends on the extremes. The critical thinking is a factor of consideration and is an alteration of the Schindler’s List. This is because in Schindler’s List, Schindler is considered a key player in the flow of the movie with rewarding in the end but becomes a different case for the Mississippi Burning as it centers upon the demise of the protagonists and not to the mysterious individual who played the part of an informant as well as the Mrs. Pell. They get concealment, dimensional creativity of the plot to illuminate the topical issue of the significance of the justice system in a community without bias or prejudice of racial statuses.


The Greatest Showman

Founded on the resource of utilitarianism, the film portrays the great significance of family bond and unity. Despite the flaws that accompany Barnum’s ambitions causing him to almost lose his entire fortune of a family and the troupe, they end up uniting towards a steady growth and enrichment. The childhood history of Barnum is presented with the zeal of achieving his desires such as striving to settle down with the childhood friend as well as taking the risk of establishing a showground for circus performances from a loan with fictional security. Troubles, however, are presented when he envisions for greater success but is unable to balance the family life as well as the career life aspect.

The nature of ethical practice from the functionality of a family as a unit protects his relationships and because of utilitarianism, the aspect of following a particular act because of a shared vision, he revives his own authentic social life. A little sense of creativity plays the factor of the plot managing and limiting the roles of particular actors such Barnum’s wife who is initially portrayed to have achieved higher levels of education but only plays the role of a housewife while Barnum’s character is enriched.

4 Little Girls

The documentary features the substantive and linear application of critical thinking skills. It is an outcome of gathering the historical context of the community by which the four little girls grew in as well as the parallels that led to such occurrences as the bombing of the church of African Americans living in the region. The poor morals and beliefs of the community members and especially of the Ku Klux Klan in the inferiority of the Blacks to the extent of eliminating their existence through massive and ruthless bombing inclusive of the children led to the government establishing laws to foster ethical care of all nationalities.

The storyline of the documentary presents the interdependency between ethical principles and a healthy and peaceful community and any maleficence of the two variables leads to catastrophic results. The level of creativity within the plot of the documentary demonstrates an elevated level of interdependency tendencies in the social framework and hence contributing as a factor of the essence.

Twilight Zone- Death Heads Revisited (Season 3)

An episode in the Twilight Zone, it is a plot of reflection of the actions of Lutze, acts of torture, torment without despair to innocent inmates, but he comes back to make peace but receives the worst reward of mental anguish hence rendered insane, the retribution for the past. Although he seeks an excuse of acting according to the orders, he suffers the part and takes the place of the inmates, a sorrowful playback.

One major factor that facilitates the critical reflection of the topical issues is the rules of morality that generally postulate of recurrence of previous actions to one’s existence. In other words, all individuals will be accountable for their roles in all decisions and actions. The episode entices the audience to critically evaluate the previous acts of Lutze against the punishment measures rendered as a form of justice and the essence.
