Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7, University of Freiburg, course: Proseminar (Terrorism in Hollywood Movies), 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Christian Metz stated that a film is difficult to explain because it is easy to understand. (qtd. in Buckland & Elsaesser: 1). I will analyse the film Collateral Damage, directed by Andrew Davis, in terms of its context and how it is portrayed technically. My aim is to show Arnold Schwarzenegger’s development, how Collateral Damages represents a turning point in the history of action movies Arnold took part in, and how he has changed from a muscle shirt wearing daredevil and killing machine to a family man with moral values. Therefore, I will start to look at a couple of important action movies in which Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a leading role and after that, I will compare the differences of the former Arnold and the Arnold we see in Collateral Damage. To realise this, I will focus on Schwarzenegger’s behaviour and the way, Andrew Davis represents the fire-fighter and his emotions. In the end, I will give a short conclusion regarding Arnold’s rise from rags to riches and how he represents an irreplaceable icon not only in the history of action movies during the last three decades. Everybody knows the Australian guy ‘Arnie’ alias Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first role in the movie Hercules in New York owes Arnold his career as a bodybuilder and his enormous size. Released in 1970, Arnold – at this time known as Arnold Strong – plays a mythological toga clad Hercules. Arnold takes part in a weight-lifting competition; he becomes a wrestler, rides his chariot through Times Square, descends into hell and gets mixed up with gangsters. In contrast to Collateral Damage, Arthur Allan Seidelman, the director of Hercules in New York, focuses on Schwarzenegger’s muscle mass. In 1982, John Milius creates the fantasy action movie Conan the Barbarian. Here, Arnold portrays a bulldog and beefy giant who survives as sole human the strain of bondage. Conan in the role of an invincible gladiator and snake killer, sweetened by two fisted action, spectacular fighting scenes and amours turn Arnold into the James Bond of the Middle Ages. In the first third of the film, Conan knocks out a camel with an aimed bash (0:38:02). His cruelty peaks out when he decollates Thulsa in front of his followers and raises his head like a trophy. Unlike Collateral Damage, Arnold takes much pleasure in fights and he seems to be a little bit sadistic at this time. His most famous role is storied [...]

Building Bodies is an exciting collection of articles that strive toward constructing theoretical models in which power, bodies, discourse, and subjectivity interact in a space we can call the "built" body, a dynamic, politicized, and biological site. Contributors discuss the complex relationship between body building and masculinity, between the built body and the racialized body, representations of women body builders in print and in film, and homoeroticism in body building. Linked by their focus on the sport and practice of body building, the authors in this volume challenge both the way their various disciplines (media studies, literary criticism, gender studies, film and sociology) have gone about studying bodies, and existing assumptions about the complex relationship between power, subjectivity, society, and flesh. Body building--in practice, in representation, and in the cultural imagination--serves as an launching point because the sport and practice provide ready challenges to existing assumptions about the "built" body.

In politics, as in so many other areas, California is unique. The state's economy - the largest in the nation, and sixth largest in the world - is given to dramatic swings. Its legislative system is often defined by gridlock on matters large and small. The use of the initiative, one of the tools of "direct democracy", has become commonplace. Over the years, California has had more than its share of political turmoil. But for pure melodrama, nothing matches the 2003 campaign to recall the state's sitting governor, Gray Davis. Recall! relates the latest and most dramatic chapter in the political history of the Golden State. The authors are recognized experts on California politics and regular local television political analysts. They provide fascinating coverage of the events leading up to Davis's replacement by bodybuilder-turned actor-turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger; describe the large and colorful cast of characters involved in the special election; and demonstrate how California's one-of-a-kind mix of political, economic, and social circumstances made it all possible.
