  5. I still think that the director cares about him, but not as much as the show,he sees truman as a money product and doesn't care about trumans intentions.

    What is Truman going to do after he escapes?

    I think that he is just going to try to live a normal life in the real world. I think that sylvia will find him.

  11. What do you think Truman will do if this happens to someone else and it is televised to the world.

  12. I was suprised when people were happy and clapping when he found his way out, e.g., when the cops and people at the bar saw him escape most of the people were cheering.

  13. Ty B. I think it will be the other way around. I think Silvia will find Truman because at the end of the movie it showed Silvia running out of her room (probably going to find him).

  14. Do you think the Truman Show could've ended differently?
    How so?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ty- i think she will go to him because someone needs to teach him the way of outside life.

  16. How did they control the weather? And do you think they will just pick another baby, since they make that whole mini world?

  17. Alec - What is Truman going to do after he escapes?

    I think he will end up living together with Silvia, and have a happy life with her.

  18. What will Truman do with his life now sense he is in the real world now. Is he going to find silvia now?

    I think hes going to meet Silvia and go to fiji as he wanted. I think the real world will affect him in a surprising way because everything was fake in this but now he will experience real life.

  20. Gabe S-
    Yes, I do think that Truman and Sylvia will meet up. She knows where he is because she used to be on the show as well. You could see at the end when she was getting ready to leave that she was determined to find him. She will probably show him a lot of the real world, and he will be able to adapt after a while.

    I don't think Truman is a hero he is just a really famous person that wanted to get out of town.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I thought it was interesting how everyone was so happy that he finally escaped from the show, but then as soon as the show was over nobody really cared anymore. because it was just a t.v. show.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Do you think that some of the people on the show started to feel bad for him, and do you think that they were mad or happy for him when he left?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anthon--
    I think it could have ended with Truman not being able to go out into the real world. He might have been too scared to walk out the door. Maybe he would have gone back and continued to play his role, but now he would know that it's just a show

    * I think some of the people did start to feel bad for Truman but they couldn't show it because it was their job. That one lady standing behind the director started to show her feelings.

  27. Do you think that there is a connection between Silvia and Clarisse from F451?

    ReplyDelete
  28. as truman is escaping how did he get over his fear of water so fast

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think it was good that he finally left the big dome and now he gets to go live real life. Also like he will have silvia to teach him the ways of outside life.

    ReplyDelete
  30. After the show I think that Truman will venture out and try to find Silvia first and then once he does I think that they will try and start to live a normal life together and possibly start a family. I think the only thing that Truman will struggle with is the major culture change that he is about to encounter.

  31. Yanni- i don't think their is a connection between the two girls, if their was one it would be that neither one of the woman loved their husbands, or at lest it didn't seem like it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yanni-
    That's an interesting connection, but yes, I do see a connection between Sylvia and Clarisse. They were both taken away from someone that they enjoyed being with, and both of them were living in a "fake world".

  33. YanniK-
    Do you think that there is a connection between Silvia and Clarisse from F451?

    I think there is a connection between Silvia and Clarisse from f451 because they both try to bring the truth out, and make others think the way they do. Clarisse wanted guy to know the truth about books and make him think like she did. While Silvia wanted to expose the truth and let Truman live a true life and not be held in a cage.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yanni
    Yes i do. They both like the main characters in the book/movie. and they don't even know the main characters even that well. so i say yeah they do have a connection.

  35. Colton- Do you think that some of the people on the show started to feel bad for him, and do you think that they were mad or happy for him when he left?

    I think that most of them definitley felt bad for him because they kind of gave him a fake life. He found out that his wife never loved him, and that his best friends and family never cared about him. So I think that they were definitely happy for him when he made it out.

  36. Yannik-

    I think they are in similar situations because of how they are both living with husbands that do not really show affection and ignore their wives. Also these wives are living a lie because of how these seem like a fake relationship

  37. Why do you think that when truman and marlen hang out and talk its always on the unfinished bridge?

    ReplyDelete
  38. the unfinished bridge symbolizes that the story of his life is not complete, or could symbolize this fake world.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What would happen if Truman wanted to come back to the show after exploring real life?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yanni--
    I think Clarrisse is similar to Sylvia because they both seem to know more about the world than they should. They are both taken away.

  41. Zach K-
    I think that Truman overcame his fear because he was so determined to escape. Also, he was afraid of the water because his "dad" drowned in it when he was young. But then he comes back onto the set and Truman finds out he's not his actual dad. So didn't actually lose anyone that was close to him, and therefore isn't afraid of the water.

    Do you think that there is a connection between Silvia and Clarisse from F451?
    I do see a connection between these to characters because they were both thought of by society as a bad influence and are taken away because of it. Also, Guy and Truman seem more attracted to Clarisse and Silvia than there actual wives.

  43. Thomas-
    Do you think Truman is a hero?

    Truman is a hero because he follows major steps in the journey of a hero. Truman escapes and faces a dragon battle. The dragon battle is the battle for escape when Truman fights the storm and overcomes it.

  44. Eduardo P-

    Where did Truman end up going?

    I think that he went into the real world. Now he will find Sylvia and try to live a normal life. I think that he will try to Silvia because she is the one who started him on this journey. She told him how to escape and without her I don't think he would have got a clue.

    ReplyDelete
  45. nick- i dont think he would be let back because everyone would disagree and they wouldnt want him to go back but i think the director would take him back.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't think he is going to sue the show but he will go out and get a job because the whole world knows who he is and he will be famous, even more than he already is.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why do you think they bring the new girl into the movie if she plays such a little role and she is only in there for like 5 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  48. How do you think Truman's wife feels about this?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ty-
    Do you think that Truman will find Silvia?

    I think Silvia will find Truman because she was out the door and she knows where the set is because she was an actor. I think Truman is determined as well and I think they will find each other.

  50. Why did they make Truman's wife leave?

    ReplyDelete
  51. The eagle on the front of the boat symbolizes pride and freedom and his soon to be independence.

  52. edguardo
    i dont think his "wife" really cares for him. She was just an actor pretending to be his wife.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Nick-
    What are they going to do with the show now?

    I think they are going to end the show because there isn't a point in replacing Truman because he was "real" and wasn't faking his role. Also if they do continue the show I think they will start over will another baby and watch him grow.

    ReplyDelete
  54. eduardop-

    How do you think Truman's wife feels about this?

    She was just a fake wife and I don't think she really even cared since she was an actor so i did not matter to her.

    ReplyDelete
  55. John N- they made his wife leave because he almost killed her.

    ReplyDelete
  56. eduardop- I dont think she cares at all she was just a actor and she was getting paid to do that so she shouldnt care

    ReplyDelete
  57. What would have happened to the show if Truman had actually killed his wife?

    ReplyDelete
  58. What's so important about the quote: "Good morning! And incase I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and goo night!"

    ReplyDelete
  59. I believe that this is related to F451 because of the rise of the phoenix, so Truman has a new beginning and is going to marry Silvia and live life like a normal person.

  60. Colton

    I think the more and more people that watch the show and the more people started to "feel" for him especially the more heated it gets. People were emotionally attached to Truman because they could relate to him because was "real" and not an actor.

    Why did they make Truman's wife leave?
    i dont think they made her leave i think she wanted to leave because she didnt love truman and she felt like her life was in danger

    ReplyDelete
  62. Are there any similarities between the wives in both F451 and The Truman Show?

    ReplyDelete
  63. AdamHi-

    Yes they are both living a lie.
