Insights on "The Boy In The Striped Pajamas"

We watched the movie "The Boy in Striped Pajamas". The movie tells about Bruno during the Nazi's invasion, this movie cruel and sad, but it was nice.

I felt really sad after reading the whole novel and watching the movie. I felt pity on Bruno for wanting to sacrifice for Shmuel. Even though, Bruno still got a family at home, instead, he helped his friend and leave his family. I felt pity on the other Jews that had been killed, and I also felt pity for Bruno's family; especially his mom, dad and sister, because they have to lose two members of the family. I also learned to respect other people advice. I also learned to be thankful for everything we have. I also learned not to bully other people because the targets will be hurt inside or physically. 

The movie and novel is really tragic but at the same time, sad. I tremble to death while watching the movie because it is really tragic.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is indeed a good book. It's during the NAZI invasion. It's a tear-dropping story. It shows loyalty of Bruno to his new friend, Shmuel. It shows harsh conditions that Bruno and his family is feeling. I felt sad that Bruno died because of his new friend.

After reading the novel and watching the film, they're a little bit different. The movie, in someways, shows more feelings. It is really hard to see how Bruno died, but for me, it is totally a very good story. I would recommend you to read the novel, but the movie, it's your choice.

We watched the movie "The Boy in Striped Pajamas". The movie tells about Bruno during the Nazi's invasion, this movie cruel and sad, but it was nice. Bruno is a adventurous, he likes discovering. One day his dad has a job far away from his house and have to move house. At the new house, he found a door the door leads to the Jews camp, Bruno ran to the door and finds a forest he ran straight through the forest and found a big fence, there the Jews camp were. he found a little kid named Shmuel. they became best friends, but they never play directly because of the fence. what they can do is only play board games. One day, Shmuel's father is lost Bruno want to help, so he dig a hole and went through the hole when he is in the camp the soldiers came and kill everything.

This movie is based from a novel and its a little bit different. I liked the movie more and my rating is excellent. also I recommend this film to you. 

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas movie is a little different from the book. The movie is more tragic and more detailed.

I felt sad and sympathy after watching the movie and reading the book. I felt that it’s not really fair because the Jews have to undergo cruelness. The movie shows more emotion than the book, but it doesn’t have the book’s detail. The movie is exciting, but at the same time scary.

If I have to choose, I will choose the movie, but if to choose which one is less tragic, I will choose the book. The book adds to our imagination, and the movie lets us understand the book. If you can’t stand cruelness I would recommend the book, but if you like adventure I would say watch the movie.

The Sea is calling...

One midnight, Thea just came home from her midnight swim when she saw her father and her sister, Karen, waiting for her. Just after Thea came in through the door, her father burst out his anger. She was supposed to be home at eleven but she forgot the time and realized it after one hour later. When she got home it was already one in the morning. Her father would surely ground her. Just as she predicted, she was grounded for two days.

The next day, she doesn’t really have anything to do, so she comes over to her neighbor’s house which belongs to her friend. She stays there for the whole day. Just before six, she come home and makes dinner for her father and sister. Her mother died when she was little.
The next morning, she heard that there’s a new comer in town. Her town wasn’t really attractive and she lives in an island. So tourists come only in tourist season, but it’s only November, and tourist season is on December. But it doesn’t really matter anyway. She has seen them a few times now but not really talking to them. There’s something weird about them. They’re beautiful, flawless, and their hairs are like silks.
One day, when Thea walks near the beach, she feels like there’s someone following her. But when she looks behind her back, there’s no one. Suddenly, everything becomes dark, and she feels that she is dragged by someone. When he or she stops dragging her, she is thrown to a corner and her blindfold is opened. When she has collected herself she sees the figure, it was Lenn, Kyle, and Roxy. After that, she was asked to drink something and after she drinks it, everything went dark and she fainted.
When she wakes up the next day, she is already in the beach, worn out. There were scars all over her body. She didn’t remember anything except drinking something. Her friend next door from her house, Alex and Thea’s sister, Karen came running towards her. They quickly carry her and bring her home then lay her on her bed. After they interrogate her, they left without any answer. Then she took a bath and saw that her scars are already healed. She got shocked but not screaming.
 The next day, she went over to Lenn, Kyle and Roxy and asked them what they did to her. Then they reveal to her what are they, and they’re actually sirens. Thea got shocked and Lenn said that she can’t go back to human or else she’ll die. If she wants to live, she has to go with them, but she won’t be back to her family and friends. So she made a decision and go with them.

On a rainy afternoon there I am working here in the Michael's pizza restaurant, a place where we can eat pizza and some robot puppets sing to entertain children, the puppets were creepy and it is a really hard place to work so many people coming.  Its closing time, everybody was home I was there with my friend Amy, I said: "what are you doing here? Everyone are going home already why are you still here? Amy said: "it's okay Rachel I will wait here." Then I go to the kitchen to mop the floor, and suddenly the door was closed, when the door was closed I saw a hand closing it, “Is that you Amy?” I asked, and I  went out the kitchen to see if Amy is there, but she was not there waiting for me anymore, maybe she went home, but  I am worried, so I check the CCTV room and see the television showing all rooms, and nobody is here. It’s already 9:30  at night and I think that it’s the time to go home. I wear my jacket and walking towards the exit door the door was locked, so I checked my pocket if the keys are there. It was not there, I checked the table at the kitchen, maybe it was there, when I was there in the kitchen, the keys are really there. Suddenly, the lights went off I hear a footstep walking towards me, and suddenly the light went on again but the keys are not on the table, so I checked the CCTV room again and see the television again, there was no one, but suddenly, one camera is off. I’m confused, and scared. More and more cameras went off, so I called for help. I called Amy first and she did not answer, then I called Eric, my older brother to pick me up and he answered the phone: “Rachel, why are you calling me at 10 o’clock!? And why are you not home yet?” “ I’m stuck here and the keys are lost, so I can’t get out.” I answered. “So how am I supposed to get in?” he asked. “Well, maybe you could break it, using a hammer(?)” I said. But he said: “Are you seriously kidding me? Break the door!? How can the keys be lost?” “The keys...well before, at 9:30 o’clock, I’m mopping the kitchen floor, and I saw Amy was there waiting for me and I asked that why are you still here? She said she’ll be there waiting for me and suddenly the kitchen door was closed and when the door was closing, I saw a hand closing it, I check Amy and she’s not there, when I look the clock, its already 9:30 o’clock, so i get the keys and the keys are not on my pocket and I find it on the table, when I’m walking to the table, the lights went off, when its on again it gone.” I said it really fast. “Okay then, I’ll pick you up.” He answered. “Thanks, bye-bye.” I said. I turn off my phone and while my brother driving here, I searched for the keys again I looked everywhere and one more place to check, the basement! The basement is where the bar or where you will order drink when I turn on the lights, I saw Amy sitting on the corner. Amy said: “ssshhhh....” “Why?” I said in a whispering voice. “I got a letter, this letter was written and stucked under the table and only me noticed it.” She whispered. The letter said: “I am a night security here, this place is creeping me out, I always hear voices, footsteps and a singing: posies, posies, a basket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down.  Using the voice of little girl. I have to move work!” and thats the end of the note, then Eric came honking his car, Eric came out and broke the glass door. “It’s my brother Eric! I said let’s go Amy.” I said when we get to the first floor, I quickly ran to the door, I didn’t realize Amy was already in the car with Eric and when I’m standing in front of Eric’s car, I saw a human shaped thing running towards me and I shouted “Faster Amy!” Eric is waiting and honking his car and he shouted: “Amy is here!” I didn’t hear it clearly and I said “What are you saying?” “I said, she  is already in the car!” when I looked back at the restaurant, I saw one of the puppet running towards me holding a knife, I screamed and quickly ran into the car, Eric put it on gear one and stepped the pedal really hard and whoosh! Well that's the end of the story, and until now, the puppet is looking for a next victim! -Dhana

Have Courage To Face Everything

Gretel, Angel and Hansel, the new grade 7 girls, are going to school. They are worried that they will get bullied with their new friends like in the old school. When Gretel, Angel and Hansel first enter the class, there are lots of people watching them, and they are like wanted to shoo Gretel, Angel and Hansel away. 

Five minutes later, the teacher came in and keeps her eyes on Gretel, Angel and Hansel, she then got closer to them and said “Who are you?” Then Gretel, Angel and Hansel look at each other for a while. Finally, Gretel said to the teacher “I’m Gretel, and these are my friends, Angel and Hansel,” “We are new students here” continued Gretel. “Oh I see, you are Gretel Handerson, you are Angel Lim, and lastly, you are Hansel Harries.” “Please introduce yourselves to your new classmates.” said the teacher gently. “Hi, nice to meet you all, I’m Gretel Handerson, but you can just call me Gretel, my age is 12, and I came from Denmark.” said Gretel nervously while smiling. After a little while, then Angel stands up and introduces herself after Gretel. “Hi! Nice to meet you all. I hope we could be good friends, and I almost forgot to introduce myself. My nameis Angel Lim, but you all can call me Angel. Thank you.” said Angel. Then finally, Hansel Harries stands up and introduce herself. “Hi all! My name is Hansel Harries but you can call me Hansel, I hope we could be good friends!” 
The first subject was really hard, which is Humanities, but lucky for them, they are smart and can follow the Humanities subject well enough even though they just got to that new school. After Humanities, they study lots of subject, having a lot of home works, but of course they have breaks. After doing a lot of school stuffs, they finally walk home, but when they are about to walk out from the school, Jason, Louis and Horan came to them, which the rumors said that they are the biggest bully at school, and said “Hansel, ha-ha the black skinned girl!!” Then Gretel, Angel and Hansel stared at them, with the look of anger in their eyes, and walked away from them. 

Gretel, Angel and Hansel are being bullied and they are about to tell the teacher about it but, suddenly, Jason, Louis and Horan popped out just like that and started to bully them again, but for the second time, Gretel, Angel and Hansel walk away from them. Jason, Louis, and Horan started to say words that they aren’t supposed to say. Then, the class officers saw them bullying the three girls and said “Stop it you three! I will report you three to the teacher.” Then the class officers with Gretel, Angel and Hansel walked away from them and went to the teacher to report them. But once they did tell the teacher that the three boys bullied them, the teacher of course didn’t believe what they say. Because the teacher knew that Jason, Louis and Horan are great students and they did get good grades for their examination.
Then lastly, the three girls finally can go home but they were a bit nervous that the three boys will bully them every day. But they face it really brave enough and have courage to defend the three boys who bullied them. Then finally, because they didn’t give up and still have courage, the three boys didn’t bully them again. Day by day, the three girls eventually became famous because they can defend the three boys who were the biggest bully at school, and the three boys give up on bullying.  
The End.
