Neil Gaiman meets Tarantino Mit ›Apocalypse Now Now‹ hat Charlie Human »ein verrücktes, finsteres, respektloses und wunderbar abgedrehtes Debüt« (Lauren Beukes) geschrieben, das in seiner Heimatstadt Cape Town spielt. Südafrikanische Mythologie + magiebegabte Kopfgeldjäger + Rock’n’Roll-Highschool = punkige Urban Fantasy vom Allerfeinsten. Eigentlich läuft für den 16-jährigen Baxter gerade alles rund. Sein kleines Pornobusiness an der Highschool boomt, die Eltern lassen ihn in Frieden, und er ist über beide Ohren in die zauberhafte Kleptomanin Esmé verliebt. Doch als diese von einem wahnsinnigen Serienmörder entführt wird, laufen die Dinge aus dem Ruder. Zusammen mit dem Kopfgeldjäger Jackie Ronin macht Baxter sich auf die Suche nach ihr und entdeckt hinter dem gewöhnlichen Alltag von Kapstadt eine Schattenwelt der Ungeheuer und Magie. Ein anarchisches, übersteuertes und verdammt witziges Fantasy-Debüt mit Kultbuchpotenzial. Mit ›Apocalypse Now Now‹ und der Fortsetzung ›Kill Baxter‹ macht Charlie Human den ganz Großen der Urban Fantasy – Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher und Ben Aaronovitch – ernsthaft Konkurrenz.

Baxter Zevcenko is your average 16-year-old boy. If by average you mean kingpin of a porn-peddling schoolyard syndicate and a possible serial killer who suffers from weird historical dreams. Baxter is the first to admit that he’s not a nice guy. After all, high school is a gaping, icy abyss and Baxter is not about to allow anybody to drag him down. That is until his girlfriend, Esme, is kidnapped and the clues point toward supernatural forces at work. Faced with navigating the increasingly bizarre landscape of Cape Town’s supernatural underworld, Baxter turns to the only person drunk enough to help: bearded, booze-soaked, supernatural bounty hunter, Jackson “Jackie” Ronin. On a mission that takes them through the realms of impossibility, they face every conceivable nightmare to rescue Esmé, including the odd brush with the Apocalypse.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Fachkommunikation, Sprache, Note: 1,3, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, 13 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Coppola setzt in seinem Film über den Vietnamkrieg den Sound als eigenes, erweitertes stilistisches Mittel ein, der den Inhalt nicht nur unterstützt, sondern autonom als Inhaltsträger agiert. Aufwendige Kompositionen und eine an Intensität kaum zu übertreffende Sounddichte, setzen in dem 1979 erschienen Film neue Maßstäbe. Der erste Teil der Arbeit enthält eine kurze Zusammenfassung des Films. Für eine Analyse der auditiven Ebene ist der Inhalt von immenser Bedeutung, da sie sich Gegenseitig bedingen. „Grundsätzlich kann Filmmusik zumeist als funktionale Musik klassifiziert werden, d.h., sie bezieht ihren Sinn nicht nur auf musikimmanenten Beziehungen, sondern hauptsächlich aus ihrer Funktion als einer der Gestaltungsfaktoren des Films.“ (Bullerjahn, Claudia 2001, S.59). Damit dient sie sowohl dem Inhalt und der Repräsentation, der Narration und der Dramaturgie sowie der Darstellung von Figuren und Akteuren (Phillips, William H. 1999. S. 177 ff.) Im zweiten Teil der Arbeit folgt eine Soundanalyse zweier ausgewählter Szenen des Films Apocalypse Now. Hier soll zum einen konkret die Wirkung des Sounds auf den Rezipienten gezeigt werden, zum anderen die Rolle des Tons als Inhaltsträger. Im nun Folgenden eine Zusammenfassung des Vietnamfilms von Francis Ford Coppola.

Wir leben in einer Zeit des Umbruchs. Die Allgegenwart des Internets, der drohende Verlust der persönlichen Freiheit, Altersarmut und Überbevolkerung, Klimawandel, Terrorismus, das Schwinden von moralischen Werten, das Verlieren der eigenen Identität an Sex und Luxus, der Gottesverlust des modernen Menschen. Das sind nur ein paar Schlagworte die uns Angst machen können. Für mich sind diese Phänomene ein Zeichen dafür, dass wir am Ende der Endzeit stehen. Aber für Resignation und Mutlosigkeit ist kein Platz. Ebensowenig wie für einen besinnungslosen Tanz am Rand des ausbrechenden Vulkans. Mit meinen Predigten beleuchte ich unsere gegenwärtige Situation und zeige, dass wir angesichts der Umbrüche in unserer Gesellschaft und Welt nicht verzweifeln müssen, sondern hoffnungsvoll in die Zukunft gehen können, um diese aktiv mit unserem Handeln zu verändern. Im Zentrum steht dabei Gott, der in Jesus Christus menschlich und ohnmächtig geworden ist. Er bietet uns Versöhnung an.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1.0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Apocalypse Now ist ein Antikriegsfilm des Regisseurs F. F. Coppola aus dem Jahre 1979 bzw. 2001 (Director’s Cut), das durch seine Handlung die Sinnlosigkeit des Vietnamkrieges thematisiert. Das Drehbuch basiert auf Joseph Conrads Novelle He-art of Darkness . Die Handlung verlegte Coppola von Zentralafrika nach Vietnam und Kambodscha. Walter Murch gewann für Apocalypse Now 1980 den Oscar für die beste Ton-gestaltung und etablierte den Begriff des Sound-Designs . Der Film benutzt als erster Film der Filmgeschichte ein 70mm Six Track Dolby Stereo surround sound-System und beeindruckt durch seine immense Sounddichte und Quadraphonic. Allgemein wird der Sound in Apocalypse Now als eigenes stilistisches Mittel eingesetzt, das den Inhalt nicht nur unterstützt, sondern auch autonom als Inhaltsträ-ger agiert. Der Sound wird im Film oft subjektiviert, d.h. dass die Umgebungsgeräu-sche aus der subjektiven Wahrnehmung eines Protagonisten simuliert werden. Auch das Bild hat im Film durch die extreme Farbigkeit, z.B. durch das Einsetzen farbiger Rauchfackeln, eine realitätsferne, halluzinatorische (und ästhetische) Komponente. Ich werden in meiner Sound-Analyse zuerst den Key Sound des Films als sol-ches klassifizieren und anschließend die Subjektivierung des Sounds im Film anhand der Anfangsszene Waiting in Saigon analysieren. Im folgenden werde ich die Unterschiede zwischen Leitmotiv und Key Sound herausarbeiten, um darauf den berühmten Helikopter-Sound aus Apocalypse Now als Key Sound einordnen zu können. Reinhold Brinckmann definiert den Terminus Leitmotiv als die „Bezeichnung für eine prägnante musikalische Gestalt, die in wortgebundener oder programma-tischer Musik einem bestimmten dichterischen Moment (einer Idee, Sache, Person u. ä.) zugeordnet ist und im musikalischen Text immer dann erscheint, wenn dieses dramatisch-poetische Moment gemeint ist.” Das Leitmotiv ist also an einen außer-musikalischen Sachverhalt gebunden. Durch eine Tonabfolge wird in der Leitmotiv-technik ein außermusikalischer Sinngehalt transportiert. Der durch Richard Wagner etablierte Begriff Leitmotiv bezeichnet also ein kurzes und prägnantes musikalisches Gebilde mit hohem Wiedererkennungswert, dass durch das selektive Auftreten in-nerhalb des Werkes semantische Bedeutung hat. Der Komponist Max Steiner gilt als Begründer der Leitmotivtechnik in der Filmmusik (Gone with the Wind ).

How may people of faith respond wisely, constructively, and courageously to the challenges of a time of terror? How might religious reasons in public debate be a force for reconciliation rather than violence and hatred? In a world in which religious arguments and religious motivations play such a huge public role, there is an urgent responsibility for interpreting what is happening, and engaging with religious views which are commonly regarded as alien, threatening or dangerous. In Apocalypse Now?, Duncan Forrester argues that disorders and atrocities which include the Gulag, the Holocaust, 9/11, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and the Tsunami disaster have shown us that we stand not at the end of history but in the midst of an apocalyptic age of terror which has striking similarities to the time in which Christianity was born. Moving between two times of terror - the early Centuries of Christianity, and today - Forrester asks how religious motivations can play a positive role in the midst of conflicts and disasters. Reading the 'signs of the times' to try to understand what is happening in today's age of terror, Forrester argues that there are huge resources in the Christian tradition that can be productively deployed for a more constructive and faithful response. We are at a turning point - this is a book which should be read.

Apocalypse Now Volume 3

Genre: Religion

Apocalypse, translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation, although this sense did not enter English until the 14th century. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden. In the Revelation of John, the last book of the New Testament, the revelation which John receives is that of the ultimate victory of good over evil and the end of the present age, and that is the primary meaning of the term, one that dates to 1175. Today, it is commonly (and erroneously) used in reference to any prophetic End Time scenario or to the end of the world in general. The key to the cryptic message in the book of Revelation is in the Metaphysics of Truth -- THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS TRYING TO REVEAL ITSELF TO US. The Apocalypse Now Series is a new perspective on Revelation's prophecy and reading the first volume is paramount to understanding this new perspective. Volume 3 of the series: The Christ Principle Part I, helps us to see Jesus Christ as a man who discovered the hidden potentials that exist in every human being. Once we understand Jesus Christ as a man who was dedicated to an unknown purpose and destiny because of the FAITH in his mother's testaments, we will begin to unlock the secrets to his ministry, and expose the shortsighted conceptions of modern-day Christianity. Can we unite many religious teachings on the fundamentals of Christ's life and testament? Learn how the teachings of Christianity have become the dogmatic rhetoric of our misconceptions. Discover the mysteries to Revelation's prophecy as the secrets continue to unfold in Volume 3 of the Apocalypse Now Series. Where did we come from? What is our purpose? What is our destiny? Read each of the 5 volumes of the Apocalypse Now series for an unprecedented solution to the most fundamental and important questions to our human existence.

The key to the cryptic message in the book of Revelation is in the Metaphysics of Truth -- THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS TRYING TO REVEAL ITSELF TO US. Once we understand our world as a reflection of the delicate metaphysical balance between Truth's incessant Will to be made manifest and the errant choices of human will, we will see the book of Revelation for what it really is - an unveiling of Truth through the harsh experiences that enlighten us. In the final volume of the Apocalypse Now series, we examine Revelation's Sixth seal. Revelation's Sixth seal marks the day in humanity's future when the delicate balance between Truth and belief will become askew on a COLOSSAL scale. The event will be significant enough to inspire everyone to change their priorities. Just as a near brush with death inspired many towards understanding Truth and the internal nature of our being, so too would humanity be inclined by a world-changing catastrophe. Not a single person can tell us WHEN it will occur, but the event can be demonstrated as Revelation's looming harbinger or warning event. It is a prelude to doom, deception and long-awaited redemption for those who have departed. It earmarks the swift escalation towards the final battle between Truth and our perceptions of it. Discover the mysteries of Revelation's prophecy as the secrets unfold in Volume 5 of the Apocalypse Now Series.

Here we find an alternative view concerning his final temptations and the significance of the Power bestowed upon him during his final quest to understand his purpose. Only by understanding his TRUE purpose could he make the CHOICE, which would grant immunity to EVERYONE who lived on earth before and after him. What did he discover? What has modern-day Christianity missed in the interpretation of this important message? Learn why Christ's body COULD NOT have taken part in the resurrection and why this misconception will present itself in the final conflict of humanity.

Many believe we will be awakened upon death, but we demonstrate our death as the result of our failure to be awakened here on earth, which implies much more. What does that mean for we who have undying faith in Christ's redemption? Is there redemption through Christ after death, or is there more to it?
