Man of Steel
“Man of Steel” is a 2013 superhero film based on the DC Comics character Superman. The film follows Clark Kent, a young man with extraordinary powers who learns about his true heritage as an alien from the planet Krypton. He struggles with the decision of whether or not to use his powers to help others and ultimately decides to become a superhero, taking on the name Superman.
The story begins with Clark’s birth on Krypton, as the planet is on the verge of destruction. His parents, Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van, send him to Earth in a spacecraft just before the planet explodes. Clark is raised by his adoptive parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent, in Smallville, Kansas. As he grows up, he begins to discover his powers and struggles with the decision of whether or not to reveal his true identity to the world.
Clark eventually meets Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane and becomes involved in a conflict with the villainous General Zod, who has come to Earth in search of Clark and the knowledge he holds about Krypton. Clark must confront Zod and his army of Kryptonian soldiers in order to protect Earth and its people. In the end, Clark defeats Zod and embraces his role as Superman, choosing to use his powers to help others and defend the planet.
“The Untouchables” is a 1987 crime drama film directed by Brian De Palma and starring Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, and Robert De Niro. The film is set in 1930s Chicago and follows Eliot Ness, a federal agent tasked with bringing down the notorious gangster Al Capone.
Ness enlists the help of veteran police officer Jim Malone and a brash, unorthodox sharpshooter named Oscar Wallace to form a team of “untouchable” law enforcement agents who can operate outside the corrupt and compromised police force. Together, they embark on a mission to take down Capone and his criminal organization.
The team faces numerous challenges and setbacks as they try to gather evidence against Capone and his gang. They also encounter a young beat cop named Billy Malone, who becomes an ally and valuable member of the team.
In the end, Ness and his team succeed in their mission and bring down Capone, who is eventually convicted and sent to prison for tax evasion. The film ends with Ness and Malone standing on top of the courthouse steps, triumphantly looking out at the city they have helped to clean up.
Dances with Wolves
“Dances with Wolves” is a 1990 western drama film directed by and starring Kevin Costner. The film follows the story of John Dunbar, a Union Army lieutenant who is assigned to a remote military post on the western frontier.
At the post, Dunbar meets a tribe of Sioux Native Americans, who are at first wary of him. However, through his interactions with them, he comes to understand and respect their culture and way of life. He also becomes friends with a tribe member named Stands With a Fist, who helps him learn the language and customs of the Sioux.
As Dunbar becomes more integrated into the tribe, he becomes known as “Dances with Wolves” and becomes a respected member of the community. However, the arrival of Union soldiers threatens the peaceful existence of the tribe and forces Dunbar to choose between his loyalty to his own people and his loyalty to the Sioux.
In the end, Dunbar decides to stay with the Sioux and helps them defend their land against the incoming soldiers. The film ends with Dunbar and the tribe moving on to a new, safer home.
“Waterworld” is a 1995 science fiction film directed by Kevin Reynolds and starring Kevin Costner as the main character, known only as “The Mariner.” The film is set in a future where the polar ice caps have melted, causing the entire Earth to be covered in water. The Mariner is a loner who lives on a small, modified trimaran and has a number of unusual features, including gills that allow him to breathe underwater.
The Mariner becomes involved in a conflict with a group of pirates known as the “Smokers,” who are searching for a young girl named Enola. It is revealed that Enola has a map tattooed on her back that leads to the fabled “Dryland,” a place where it is rumored that there is still dry land left on Earth.
The Mariner joins forces with Helen, a woman he rescues from the Smokers, and Enola, and they set off on a journey to find Dryland. Along the way, they encounter a number of dangers, including attacks from the Smokers and other threats.
In the end, the Mariner and his companions reach Dryland and are able to start a new life there. “Waterworld” was a commercial success, but received mixed reviews from critics. It is known for its elaborate sets and action-packed scenes set in a dystopian, water-covered world.

Despite the challenges they face, they use their intelligence and determination to make significant contributions to the space program, including helping to calculate the flight trajectory for the first manned orbit of the Earth by astronaut John Glenn.
