Often, they’re not even planning to stop for food until they see a big sign, a familiar building, and set of golden arches. Fast food, like the tabloids at a supermarket or a drug store is an impulse buy. The book, fast food Nation by Eric Schlosser is as fictional representation of a non-fictional. It was named one of Time’s 100 best non fictional books. After seeing the movie and reading the book, various strands work together. Along with the film along with the book.
Illegal immigrants and generally young, unskilled, and willing to work long hours for low pay are being exploited to work for these fast food chains, and are paid under minimum wage. The movie brings up many important issues, the journey of how the illegal immigrants are exploited, and how the food in fast food restaurants is handled and the misconception that is led to the costumers. McDonalds along with other restaurants are continuingly developing new ideas to embrace children, teenagers and parents that fast food taste good, healthy, affordable and convenient.
In the movie “Fast Food Nation” directed by Richard Linklater a clip held my attention by the use of many popular credible actors in this film, like Bruce Willis and Wilmer Valderrama, with over several years of experience as actors, both along with Linklater represent the ETHOS in the film. In a scene Raul, Coco and Sylvia cross the border illegally to work at the Uni-Globe slaughter house for a better life that is an example of LOGOS, if they stay in Mexico according to Harry in later scene they work for about $4. 00 an hour and in the America $10. 0 hourly. Another example of (LOGOS), in the movie was on the kill floor where they showed that the faster the production line moved the more money the workers get pay which of course causes a undulate end product all the way to the board members and owners of the slaughter house and fast food industry because more burgers more sales. There were many examples of (PATHOS) in this film, one being when Raul lost his limb and was not compensated because the company doctor said there were drugs found in his system through a blood test.
Gods and Generals, 2003, Colonel Joshua Chamberlain (JEFF DANIELS), Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee (ROBERT DUVALL), Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson (STEPHEN LANG), Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker (MAC BUTLER), and Capt. Alexander 'Sandie' Pendleton (JEREMY LONDON). The movie Gods and Generals is a portrayal of the actions that were illustrated very eloquently and captivating ly in the book Gods and ...
His life was then ruined since he could no longer work and remained disabled. Sylvia, Raul’s girlfriend could not continue to support them on her salary and had no choice but to get a job at the slaughter house where Raul previously worked. To obtain the job Sylvia have sexual encounter with Mike the floor supervisor who was also her sisters Coco boyfriend. Many female workers at the plant were sexually and verbally abused by Mike. Another example of PATHOS was the scene where Don told Harry about the feces in the meat and how it got there.
Harry answer proved that he was aware of the problem and just did not care to which he stated “we all eat a little shit from time to time. ” McDonalds is the world’s largest fast food chain, it is popular for its delectable, mouth watering delicious burgers, and fries and chicken products along with their soft drinks and much more. However, eating a lot of these kinds of food, will harm your body; but still somehow McDonalds is considered the best for their serving low cost and quick food. Perhaps you think that everything comes along with consequences.
McDonald’s food has lots of preservatives to maintain its texture and size. The burgers in fast food chains contain saturated fat which is very harmful to eat often for its red meat. Researching thoroughly at websites and viewing commercials on the televisions and radio, persuading me to want to go see what the hype is all about the new Crispy McChicken sandwich, to go along the golden warm golden French fries and a dessert a drink with a free refill. You can’t beat that when all you’re paying for is no more than fifteen dollars for a meal.
This generation has many people of all ages which are becoming more obese simply because they are eating more fast food than home food. Restaurants and many other fast food places have foods that contain high in fat, sugar, and salt. Having a healthy regular diet at home will keep you away from many health problems. Also having fast food only on special occasions is fine as well. We all need food ...
I was hesitating when I was asked to go to a fast food restaurant to eat the food. But my experience can’t be so bad, so why not it’s just one meal. I arrived at McDonalds. I didn’t want to sit and eat it there, I wanted to take it to go; but the line for the drive thru, was as long as the lines at the department stores during Christmas holidays. So we decided to go inside and order. The restaurant was clean, the garbage wasn’t overflowing. Mostly all the seats were occupied by families, friends and single people eating their meal.
Children were sitting calmly eating and playing with their toys that was provided in the happy meal. We walk up to the register we look up at the value meal selections, there were about different items to choose from. We walk up to the next register we’re greeted by a friendly employee. She says to us “Hi, Welcome to McDonalds, would you like to try one of our value meals”? I ordered a value meal of two hamburgers and fries and a medium drink; my son ordered the six-piece chicken nuggets with French fries and an apple juice.
She hands me an empty cup, and said I can get my soft drink to the right side of the registers. We look an empty seat. I stare at the flat dry burgers and the fries looked old, soggy, and tasted highly salted. After seeing the movie, I’m skeptical about the food. I took a bite into the burger, it taste a dry, and salty. But I continue eating it anyway. I finished my food, I get up and throw away my leftovers. As I sit there, I analyze the commercials, and advertising the food doesn’t look as perfect and appetizing as it does in the television or the description they give on the radio.
On the television the burgers look so immaculate, the double layer of the sear sizzled 100% pure beef mingled with special sauce on a sesame seed bun and topped with melt American cheese, crisp lettuce, and minced onions and tangy pickles (PATHOS).

In the movie, it tries too hard to scramble as many things seem unimaginable, with the weak directing and failing to pull them together in a coherent way. It was a bit disturbing at times; sex scenes between managers and employees.
It includes an extremely graphic sequence on the “killing floor” of a meat-packing plant, which actual footage of brutal hacking at cattle. (ETHOS) Other violence includes the difficult border crossing endured by Mexican workers and a bloody scene of a worker’s leg getting caught and cut off in a grinding machine. As the story continues to unfold, but it made me really consider where the food comes from. A happy family entering the restaurant; ecstatic, hungry, and it demonstrates people eating the big, juicy, mouth watering perfect Famous burger.
The perfect golden brown French fries delicious, rich, crisp, stacked perfectly and lined up in size order. I entered the website of McDonalds and keyword French fries, the corporate site for the Golden, soft and fluffy fries as it describes on the inside. My mouth gets watery as I read and pictured the French fries (PATHOS).
The facial expressions and the sound effects the customers make as the bite into the burger convinced me perhaps I should go and try out this burger that looks so delicious. The book approach was very similar to the film by ortraying many examples of (PATHOS) nevertheless the book was more thorough and taught us the readers about the history of the fast food industry and how cruel they were about making the money regardless of loss of lives limbs or that the meat was contaminated. The (ETHOS) was all the interviews and statistics Eric Schlosser gathered from farmer, victims, workers and the reviews he got from newspapers nationwide since they give influence to his reliability. The (LOGOS) in the book is how the fast food industry like Mc Donald’s targets children, teenagers, moms, dads and their purpose of “getting kids to irritate their parents” (43).
This comes to conclusion is done through taste, television and toys. There were a limitless amount of (PATHOS) examples in the movie but the book painted a much more dramatic picture of the people and places affected pessimistically by the industry. Through pages (59-90) which teach us on what goes on behind the counter, Schlosser spoke about how the fast food chain tries to destroy man power with machinery and how they get millions in subsidies just for training workers and also from the state for hiring low income workers (72).
Sergi Eisenstein 11898-19480 was a Russian film aker well now for political persausain and fine art. Eisenstien has made many contributions to modern film. He shaped the soca il and artistic potential of cinema by combing realistic narrative with symbolic imagery. Eisenstein used the technique of montage, the assembling of cinematic shots in rapid successions. He used different angels and views to ...
In the chapter “Why the fries taste so good” pages (111-131) he talks about the effects of “the Golden age of Food Processing” on and how belligerent the struggle of a few pennies is all it takes to drive many potato farmer out of business because the profits of these company barely goes down to the poor farmers. In the final chapter “What’s In The Meat” was the most dreadful it entailed exactly what we eat and explain thoroughly how the fast food industry does not care that they feed the public contaminated meat that has killed thousand over the years many of which are children.
The spread of E-Coli 0157:H7 to people through tainted meat was used as an example throughout the book claiming the lives of many, including children nationwide and because of mixed product (cows coming from different farms) some of the meat could not be traced. The website I visited was Mc Donald’s which has been around since 1955 a total of 58 years which represents (ETHOS) and show credibility. It had categories also, they included jobs, locations, food and nutrition info which informed us viewers that 80% of the menu information consist of less than 500 calories.
The menu had perfect pictures showing each item with a breakdown of calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein and of course sodium, seeing food is quite significant especially if you are hungry, this is examples of (LOGOS).
As soon as I pulled up the website the first information that popped up were the words “The premium Mc Wrap three flavors in crispy or grilled” and a picture of the wrap. It was at the top of the page this I considered (PATHOS) since it played in my head.
The fast food industry relies mainly on Pathos to sell their food with the use of appealing pictures they influence the viewers to crave for their tasty meals and refreshing colorful drinks The toys given with the kid’s meal influence children to put pressure on their parents to buy them junk food. The most effective approach that would target the widest range of customers would be the use of advertisement since most people own a TV’s, radio, and computers. The information would spread much faster this way to millions of people every day.
When you take a look at ths i picture what do see? Everyone sees it differently, but it all depends on the view you give it. There are people in this world that do bad things and there are other people that make a stereotype on a group of people based on a certain group. That is something that we need to stop. Since 9/11 many people have developed a mentally of what a Middle-Eastern people look ...
