social class their
look at social stratification and class theories that act as the best
predictors

of the
relationship of the rich and the poor. The discussion is going to circle around
the

differences
between 1% of the populations that get 99% of the resources against a 99% that
is

barely getting
through survival consuming 99% of the resources. It speaks of why the playing

ground that is not
level for these two populations in the society. Questions raised in the films

is that what makes
it morally acceptable for the 1% to feel that it is okay to dominate the rest

of the population?
Which factors contribute to the maintenance of status quo? How are these

issues applied so
well to keep the lower population in check? In the two films their aspects of

culture that in
many ways keep the people in a lower position of life in addition to the

politics. Arts of
these films are fit for the description whereby socioeconomic situations

express an
economic dichotomy vertically as a bottom to the top comparison. With clear

indication of
dissatisfaction of ruling powers which spur up revolts in areas that caused by
a

sense of lack of
satisfaction with the people who seem to have all the power in charge of the

ruling ( 1% who
own it all facing off with the rest of the population). This paper is a

comparison of the
film Snowpiercer and Metropolis looking at the major similarities and the

manner in which
they are relevant to today society.

Snowpiercer
is a film about a group of rebels pushing forward from the back of a train

in an ice age
where the only aim is to get level the playing field. This comes after a group
of

the only survivors
are packed in deplorable conditions in a life train after an attempt to fight

climatic change
becomes tragic causing an ice age. Snowpiercer is the name of this train that

is intended keep
to all its occupants alive with is self-sustaining capabilities as it goes
round

around the world
cutting through the ice with ease. Inferior people are confined in the tail by

the people who are
in charge, the tail is slum dwelling setups comprised of packed together

quarters which are
reduced to meals of protein blocks for survival with no other luxury in any

social form. This
opposite of the head of the rail where there are coaches and coaches of food

to the extent
where the some of them are utilized as class rooms from the children of the
elite

occupants of the
first coach. A revolt is the coordinated by one of the occupants of the tail

Curtis. This is
with the aim to dispatch a revolt in light of a hunch that the officers may
have

come up short on
projectiles after the past revolt, yet his hesitance to lead persistently
scatters

the lower-classes’
enthusiasm for ascending and taking over the Snowpiercer. He stirs up the

need to get to the
front with every passing minute sparking the need for freedom to eat to eat

and live better
without the fear of death as they have been made to belief is the way of life
to

the people who go
against system which has a plan on how the natural order of things should

be.

Whereas,
‘Metropolis’ is believed to be a futuristic setup of living in a city that is

comprised
dystopian vision. This is a state on earth that has towers housing which is

constructed
outrageously high into the air. In the interim, down underneath those high
rises

involved by the
rich world class are the shocking machines running on 24-hour plans that

keep the city
going and the tip top securely isolated from the filth down below of which they

know close to
nothing. This city is run by John Frederson, a mix of representative and

government
official who’s everyday routine is characterized by his transcription of
requests

to subordinates.
He is the son of the supreme leader of the city. There is a lot that is

pinpointed by this
film such how some things never change that is despite the film being set

in the future. For
instance, some young men in this film appear to be entitled are as yet

characterized by
their capacity to roll and waste: Freder invests his energy taking part in

costly brandishing
exercises or lolling the hours away by gardens on the tops of the towers

while gazing at
young ladies wearing fundamentally fewer items of clothing than the young

men. Because of
the particular reason of poor and inconsiderate leadership an uprising come

up to over through
the current leadership that is bent on keeping the poor in poverty while at

the same time
making the rich richer.

In
both the Snowpiercer and Metropolis the rail and the city is the only world the

characters know
about so the only option is to fight their way into the higher ranks of the

living setup of
the rich to get a better life. This is a similarity that is very important in
the

case of these two
films because it introduces a struggle that only ends when the characters get

what they want.
The Snowpiercer adds an interesting twist in the way that a large number of

races come
together to work towards a common goal. The communication of this film, in this

case, is that
there is need to involve the whole world in the war on climate change. Such

messages are
hidden throughout these films; this is an important communication to the

audience as there
is a need for a proper synergy in the fight for the future of humankind. In

the Metropolis the
modern city sky scrapers indicate an advanced growth in the way of life.

The people form
down below the crazy are concern that their cries are not being heard,

therefore they to
fight this they group up to find an easy to way to find a way to the top of the

tower.

The
uprising of the workers and the train passengers pass on an extremely critical
and

imperative
socio-political message about imbalances in the public eye and the fate of
presentday

private enterprise
in and the manner in which it is run. In the film, Metropolis capitalism

is uncovered from
its very mechanics in the root, from the working masses at the base, to the

intense first
class at the best. Oppression in these films is shown implicitly as the
officers

throughout the
films are given direction to take part public executions to instill fear in the

hearts of City has
likewise ended up being prophetic, the same number of the subjects it

investigated just
about a century prior are as important, and squeezing, today as they were the

point at which the
film was first released for public viewing.

Imagery
has been used in both films in a major way for example in the Snowpiercer

the film has been
created with the belief that the trail can forever sustain the needs of its

passengers. The
only thing is to make others survive only on a protein bar that appears to be

made only for
preventing them from dying. It is that way because a portion of people on the

train believe that
all the great food provisions belong to them. It is an indication that the

world is being run
by machines and there is no going back. It is similar in the case of

Metropolis which
delineates a world where machines operate every single part of the society.

This, obviously,
was a response against the expanding robotization of present-day social

orders in the
nineteenth and mid-twentieth century. Populations that work in the Metropolis I

the film a show to
be reduced significantly by the introduction of big machines assist in the

running of the
high rises seen actually expending laborers. At the end of the day, monster

machines have
transformed into malignant divine beings that request human penances

(Brandon E.).

For
a motion picture that was made right around a century prior, Metropolis is
still

frightfully
significant. Relevance of such movies today is the lingering reality of how use
of

machines is
inevitable

In
spite of the fact that our development may not in the flesh take after one
delineated

in this movie,
numerous different courses which draw clear lines against each other. For

instance, in
financial positions, the dissimilarity amongst laborers and moguls is more

noteworthy than
any time in recent memory. That is the main difference between these two

movies as in the
first one where the train passengers are not expected to give labor in return

for the little
food they are given. In the Snowpiercer the passengers are picked out one by
one

to head into the
head of the train, this makes the remaining passengers feel like something

bad keeps on
happening the one go through the door to the head of the train. No one ever

comes back after
going through the door. The labors of this area of this high-rises are treated

really badly which
would mean that they are not in control of what they are doing because the

overlords are
watching their every move and punishing them for any slip-ups.

Similarly
pertinent is the way that innovation is taking over an ever more noteworthy

part in our
general public; the idea of robots or machines isn’t as outlandish as it was in
a day

that is highly
celebrated. Surely, much has been said before around common risks and moral

matters emerging
with armed automatons. Robots that take part in surgical issues are likewise

ending up
moderately regular in the United Kingdom, and keeping in mind that that may

without a doubt
produce innumerable public utility after some time, the thought is still really

frightening. To
the people who are involved in the works.

In
conclusion, these two films are about an era of up risings where people rise up
to

take what they
need in order to survive or to help them from oppressive leaderships. It is a

communication of
what is to be expected if people keep on living dangerously while ignoring

environmental
factors like climate change.
