A Midsummer Night's Dream Parody

Feat. Joe Fillmore and Eric Roggow. KIDS DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!
matt turcotte's insight:

this video shows a humerous side of demetrius and lysanders fight in mid summer. it is not only funny because of there mockery of the play but there bad acting and poor quality is also very funny. i thought that i could understand this better by watching this video. it uses a modern setting with modern weapons. this is a video that makes you want laugh and stop watching at the same time.

I choose this video because it shows a funny verison of the fight between lysander and demeteruis in Mid summer Nights, the bad acting and horrible quailty gave me a better understanding of that part in the play. I Liked it because it moked the play in a good funny way.

matt turcotte's insight:

In this play there are many funny elements. Most of these funny things came from the four lovers in the play, lysander, demetrius, hermia, and helena. They have the weirdest love square going on where almost everyone loves someone but the other person does not love them back at some point in the play. there are many reviewers of the play but one that i thought was great was by M.E. Comtois who wrote about the comedy of the play. comotois makes points that the four lovers are simply there to provide comedy and nothing else

matt turcotte's insight:

In Greek mythology Hippolyta was a powerful woman who ruled the amazons, a tribe of warrior women who raised only daughters. The Amazons were objects of fear in Greek culture, and many myths describe them as extremely fierce and powerful. Numerous stories are told about Hippolyta, and they have conflicting endings; for example, she has been killed by theseus, his son, Hercules, and even her companion Penthesilea in various stories. Some mythologists have suggested that “Hippolyta” was actually several different women, and this explains the varied endings in the stories told about her. Also in in dc comics she is wonder womans mother and even stands in for her in a couple of issues.

matt turcotte's insight:

this article talks about women in the skakespearean time period. they were the typical women stereotype. they were always cooking and cleaning and did not do any work outside of the house for money. if they ever back talked to there husband or father they would be beaten senslesly. also women did not have an opinion for anything and were not allowed to speak. this article gave me a better understanding of how the women were treated back then.

The histoical article i picked for my scoop it, talks about the sterotyipcal women in this time period. They would cook and clean while the man works and take care of the children. the women were not allowed the same rights as men, for example women could not be an actor in a play or choose who they are married too. in this time period it is all up to the male.

matt turcotte's insight:

in this picture it shows titania and bottom snuggling up together. this to me is a very funny picture because it shows that titania is under the spell that was put on her and is in love with bottom. she does not care that he has a head of an ass. bottom is also in shock he is suprissed that she loves him and that he looks like a jack ass. with the fairys and wooland animals surronding them this makes for a fun loving picture.
