1.) Describe, in your own words, a trope you have selected and researched. Include at least two examples that you have seen yourself to describe the trope. RESPONSE SHOULD BE AT LEAST 250 WORDS MINIUMUM
For example, if I were to outline and describe the Magical Negro trope, I would also include details about “Bagger Vance” and “The Green Mile”, including the characters that embody that trope (i.e. Mr. Coffee and Will Smith’s character), and how they fit the trope. I have seen both films and would have no trouble describing the two characters and how they fulfill the Magical Negro trope’s expectations and development (or lack thereof as an erasure of black lives).
COMMENT OR GIVE YOUR PROSPECTIVE ON THE RESPONSE FROM CLASSMATE. EACH COMMENT OR RESPONSE SHOULD BE 250 WORDS EACH TOTAL OF 750 WORDS .
The definition of a trope in film is basically the stereotypical cliche put forward in most films of certain characters. one famous trope is the the “cool girl” trope. This is a female character in a film that is the depiction of a male in a womans body.This typical woman is portrayed as being just like one of the guys. She might eat a lot and “un lady like” yet maintains her small, thin figure. She likes sports and speaks provagetively. She plays video games and comes of as “not the typical helpless woman” that they usually put in films. This only works if the woman is drop dead gorgeous though. She has to apeal to the mans eye inorder to be the “cool girl” trope. She also maintains this sterotype as long as she doesnt outshine the male characters in the film. She often acts as if she doesnt care about other peoples feelings and says whats on her mind freely not caring how she sounds. An example of a “cool girl” would be Donna from “That 70s show”. Donna is a tomboy who likes to play sports and, beat up Eric and is not portrayed as a nagging helpless girl. She is very unlike the girly girl Jackie. Another example of a “cool girl” would be Megan fox from Transformers. Her character is drop dead gorgeous and knows more about cars than the average girl would. She has a very cool chill personality. Shes basically a tomboy That dresses to appeal the male eye.
