科学研究离不开艺术，根本是因为这二者有共同的目标。无论是科学研究还是艺术创作，都是人的内心追求。就如福楼拜所说的: “艺术越来越科学化, 科学越来越艺术化, 两者在山 麓分手, 有朝一日, 将在山顶重逢。” 科学家通过不断的研究发现更深层次的自然规律，这是自然的美，而人类通过画作、雕塑展现的是人自己的美。这两者都是对美的不同的方向的追求，但目标是统一的。无论是科技还是艺术，都必须对人有实际意义才是有价值的。
Running for Governor is a novel written by Mark Twain in 1870, which unmasks the darkness of the capitalism. I was nominated for governor of the great State of New York. I thought that I had a big advantage over others, which was good character at first. But then a lot of fake news appeared on the newspaper. I suddenly became a perjurer, a thief, a body-snatcher, a delirium tremen, a corruptionist and an embracer. The editors made up one story after another and asked me to answer these charges and thus I had no choice to give it up.
The background of the novel is that after the civil war, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party used a lot of money to attack each other in various ways. Despite the great character of me, I was so weak that I didn’t debate with those who made up fake news so that I give it up, meaning that the ugly politician would finally become the governor, which reflects the disadvantage of the electoral system.
The part that impressed me the most is the ending, where nine little toddling children of all shades of colour and degrees of raggedness rushed on to the platform at a public meeting, clasped me around the legs and called me father, reaching the climax of the novel. I can even imagine the picture of it.
Despite the fact that it was written more than a century ago, it still has realistic significance now. What happened in the novel was what happened in the 2016 election in the United State. What were reported the most were troubled histories of Hilary and Trump instead of their plans. The idea that Russia has interfered the 2016 election and will interfere the 2020 election to let Trump to be elected has never stopped.
The Foreigner is a film directed by Martin Campbell. In the film, Jackie Chan acts as a British Vietnamese Chinese whose name is Guan Yuming. He has been a soldier attending the Vietnam War, whose daughter, his last family member, was killed in a terrorist attack in London, but because of the political struggle between the United Kingdom government and the Northern Ireland government and the fact that the vice minister of Northern Ireland who was a member of the terrorist organization and still keeps in touch with the controller wants to take advantage of the attack to trade with the UK government to have better political future, nobody cares about the dead. What’s more, some members discover his plan and struggle with him. There are some spies around him from the UK government and the terrorist organization. Everyone has his or her own idea, but nobody really cares about the dead.
To revenge on the terrorist organization and the vice minister, he follows the tracks of him, finds evidence of his errant actions and many other things, and asks for the name list of the attackers. Finally, he manages to kill them and post the evidence on the Internet, making the vice minister lose everything.
The story is partly a fiction, but the violent struggle between the UK government and separatists is from the First World War to 1998 is true. This film unmasks the struggle both between the UK government and the terrorist organization and between the terrorists.
Actuarially, without the foreigner, the UK government can still deal with the terrorist organization. This film just shows a story about revenge.
My favourite character is Guan Yuming because of the action.
“Everybody’s here, meet, dad.” is the last saying the daughter to Guan Yuming. Just in front of Guan Yuming, his daughter goes into the house, and minutes later, the bomb burst. Although he immediately rushes into the house to save his only family member. His wife and other sons and daughters has been dead because of the family’s hard trip to the UK. You can imagine how sad Guan Yuming is when he loses his last family member.
2001: A Space Odyssey is an adapted science fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick, released in 1968, more than one year before Armstrong’s “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” on the Moon in 1969. Unlike other adapted film, the novel’s writing, filming and scripting were doing at the same time, which allowed the staff to revise the products by exchanging ideas with others and therefore the film was so realistic that people found that many imaginations was true later. Due to the unadvanced film and TV late stage, the staff used a lot of ways to film, which have been used in many films since then.
The film tells a story that long long ago, when apes were fighting against each other for food, a black stone came to the Earth. On touching the stone, the apes mastered the tool-making skills and thus they finally evolved into human beings, dominating the Earth, discovering the space and establishing many bases on the Moon.
In 2001, people find a black stone on the Moon. The ratio of the length, width and height is accurately 1:4:9. When the scientists touch the stone, they receive the message that something is on the Jupiter. On the journey, many things happen, and finally only one person arrive the Jupiter, becoming a star child, looking on the space and the Earth.
The few words, much music and large area of black make the film an artwork, being full of both the people’s hopes and worries about the future.
People can go to the Moon as easily as they take a plane. New technology can help them communicate with others easily. But technology is a double-edged sword. In the film, an AI called HAL, my favourite character, dubbed by Douglas Rain goes wrong in spite of the fact that scientists think that it will never go wrong, killing almost everyone in the spaceship and finally Dave Bowman cuts off the power and saves himself.
The television cameras with red light and emotionless voice are at every place in the spaceship, which is the only description of HAL. The camera with red light and emotionless voice in the huge screen, frightening everyone watching the film, makes people produce adrenaline. I love it.
Sayings are not necessary in this film, on the contrary, music is. The best part I think is the long flight from the Earth to the Jupiter, with no saying but music, displaying the space and the spaceship from different angle. The lack of animating atmosphere and Aram Khachaturian’s Gayane let everyone be absorbed in the space travel. Nothing can surpass it.
A plot may express the power of technology. When Dave Bowman feels that HAL is probably going wrong, he takes his colleague to a place where HAL can’t hear their voice to discuss how to close HAL, but HAL eavesdrops their conversation by analysing their lip language and is going to kill everyone.
Winning a lot of prize, there is no doubt that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the best science fiction film in the world.
