Need a paper on this movie”Gamer” release in 2009 it can be watched here http://vidreel.com/video/MzM2/ you just have to click hide adds so you can click play, here are the instructions for the paper on it
THE PAPER SHOULD:
1. be between 5 and 7 pages long;
2. be double-spaced, Times New Roman font,
3. have the title and your name at the top of page 1 and the review should begin immediately after that.
4. have all pages numbered at the upper right.
5. have all quotations used within quotation marks and with the source clearly indicated within parentheses following the quotation in the form: Birds sing (Jones 1993:36). Where the is the page number on which the quote appears and Jones 1993 is a reference which is included in proper format in the Literature Cited. Note that quotations may not exceed 3% of the total number of words in the paper! Use quotations only where the wording is especially important. Otherwise, paraphrase what you have read.
1. identify the movie,
2. tell us when it was made
3. very briefly tell us what it is about this is not a paper about what the movie is about; it is a paper about the science in the movie;
4. focus on the science and/or technology in the movie and discuss the presentation of the science. For example:
a. Is it realistic?
b. Was it “state-of-the-art” in terms of reflecting current knowledge at the time the movie was made?
c. How might this movie educate people about the science that is in it?
d. Can one learn something of the science from the movie?
e. Does it stimulate interest in the science?
f. Does it misinform the viewer about the science?
g. Does it play to stereotypes or phobias relative to the science?
h. Does it address an issue of current interest or concern relative to science?
i. How might the movie have been done differently to improve the presentation of science?
j. What impact might this movie have on stimulating interest in science?
k. What social or political ramifications are there relative to the science portrayed?
l. What was wrong with the movie or right with it — as a vehicle for portraying science?
m. Is there any way the movie might stimulate new lines of scientific research?
n. Are there scientists listed in the credits as advisors to the production of the film? What did you learn about the science advisors from the internet? Are they credible advisors that might be expected to have improved the science in the film?
o. Are there supplementary materials on the DVD associated with the film? If so, are these of value in contributing to the understanding of the science behind the film?
These questions are intended to give you ideas about the kinds of things you might address and are questions that will be used to grade your paper. There also are likely many other questions you might address related to science and technology that you saw in the movie.
Your paper should provide some summary/conclusion and must incorporate use of resources other than the movie itself. These can include materials found on the internet, but you must evaluate the scientific quality of such resources. Are they reputable? Are they the product of some partisan group with an agenda? Are they the work of a scientist or simply something that someone else has put out there without any credible background in the subject area? You may also use review articles from the popular literature, but again, must evaluate the source as to its credibility.
Finally, you must dig into the primary literature (literature based on original scientific research) for at least one reference. Primary literature includes scientific articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Science, Ecology, Nature, BioScience, The Auk, and Journal of Mammalogy. A news story in one of these journals is not peer-reviewed primary literature.
Different publications require different formats for citations, and it is very important for an author submitting a manuscript for possible publication to follow the instructions for the specific publication. The format used here is one that is commonly used in scientific publications. YOU MUST follow the format given below. Following directions is important. Such directions insure that all the necessary information is included.
Each source of information that you use needs to be carefully listed in a “Literature Cited” section at the end — and in the text you should clearly indicate what sources were used for various ideas and information expressed.
You should use sources by reading them and then paraphrasing and synthesizing key ideas from what you have read. If you take ideas or factual material from another source, then you must cite that source by placing the authoRs last name or authors last names and the year of publication within parentheses at the end of the sentence or passage that includes that idea: e.g., (Jones 1933).
For example, if the film you watched was Finding Nemo [NOTE that you cannot use one of the films seen in class], you might have a statement about the habitats normally used by clown fish. Your sentence might be something like:
Clown fish are found in coral reef areas and are intimately associated with anemones (Jones and Smith 1999).
The inclusion of (Jones and Smith 1999) at the end of the sentence tells the reader that you found the information in the article or book or web page written by Jones and Smith. If the authors had been Jones, Smith, and Garcia, or any number of authors beyond two, the in-text citation would be written as (Jones et al. 1999). [The Latin al. stands for and others.] If there is no author listed, indicate (Anonymous 1999). If there is no date, indicate (Jones undated)…(Anonymous undated). If you have multiple references that have no author listed and were published in the same year, identify these by inserting a letter after the year (Anonymous 1999a, 1999b, etc.). If you have multiple sources that have no author and no date of publication they should be cited in the text as (Anonymous undated a, Anonymous undated b, etc.). A lot of internet sites will lack this information, but the lack of an author leaves the reliability of the site open to question and the lack of a date leaves the timeliness of the information open to question. Most of your references should be of better quality.
Within the Literature Cited section each author must be listed by last name and initials and be listed in alphabetical author by last name of the first author. Anonymous articles should be treated as if the word Anonymous is the author last name. Use the following examples as formats:
Burger, J., L. M. Miller, and D. C. Hahn. 1977. Behavior and sex roles of nesting Anhingas at San Blas, Mexico. Wilson Bulletin 90:359-375.
Frederick, P. C., and D. Siegel-Causey. 2000. Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga). In The Birds of North America, No. 522 (A. Poole and F. Gill, eds.). The Birds of North America, Inc., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Stevenson, H. M., and B. H. Anderson. 1994. The birdlife of Florida. University Press of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.
Online references MUST include a URL that will take the reader directly to the site where the material used is presented. For example:
Parker, G. 2002. Rare Birds. Well done movie. Accessed 10 May 2010 at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0295552/
Note that the above reference is an authored and dated review within a web site that doesn Â¢t have an author or specific date listed. It is only the authored review that is referred to by this citation. If the whole web site needs to be referred to, the citation would be:
Anonymous. 2007. Rare Birds. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0295552/
If you check this URL, you will find the copyright date (dates) given at the end. Use the most recent copyright date as the date for the reference. If you can find no date, the reference would be cited in the Literature Cited as Anonymous. Undated. If you have more than one Anonymous. Undated or more than one Anonymous or article by the same author for the same year, distinguish these by adding a different lower case letter following the Undated or year: e.g., Anonymous. Undated Anonymous. 1988Smith, J. L.. 1999 Smith, J. L. 1999. See above for how these are indicated in the in-text citations.
I emphasize: Carefully consider your resources. How reliable are they? Are they from a fringe group espousing a particular point of view, or are they basic science presented in primary literature (the results of original research), or something in between?
Wikipedia is often a very useful resource, but there are two aspects to it that are problematic. (1) Anyone can write or modify anything on Wikipedia, (2) No authors are given in the entries so you have no idea of the qualifications of the writer or the accuracy of the information, and (3) the articles change frequently. What you read today in an account may not be there the next time you open Wikipedia. Therefore if you use Wikipedia you (1) need to also consider other resources and check major points (try using the literature cited at the end of the Wikipedia article and look for primary literature there), and (2) you must indicate in your bibliographic entry the date on which you accessed any URL. By doing the latter, the reader can go back to an earlier URL to see what you saw.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE ANY AMOUNT OF MATERIAL (text or illustrations) DIRECTLY FROM SOMEONE ELSE WORK WITHOUT TEXT BEING IN QUOTES AND THE AUTHOR IDENTIFIED AND ILLUSTRATIONS CLEARLY IDENTIFIED AS TO SOURCE. CUTTING AND PASTING FROM THE INTERNET OR FROM A PUBLISHED SOURCE OR FROM ANOTHER STUDENTÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢S PAPER WITHOUT TEXT BEING IN QUOTES AND TEXT AND ILLUSTRATION SOURCE IDENTIFIED IS PLAGIARISM AND MAY RESULT IN A ZERO FOR THE ASSIGNMENT AND POSSIBLY AN F FOR THE COURSE. See the information on plagiarism posted on Angel under LESSONS and your syllabus for further information about plagiarism.
Make sure all these are covered
