Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Angelina Jolie:

  2. Producer Yoshi Stone:

    I think there has been this impression that we are ‘reality television’—the kind of exploitive and underhanded production that is looking to take advantage of people or laugh at people— and I don’t think that is what we are doing, we are making a compelling show about a compelling subject matter and I think we are treating it with respect.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

I believe that such approach does a best justice to the subject matter. Objectivity is always the key!

  4. Spike Lee:

    It is possible to address a very serious subject matter and still have humor. I've done it before. 'Do the Right Thing' was serious as hell. It was so serious you can still show that film today -- it's still contemporary. But 'Do the Right Thing' was also funny as a motherf***er, there are many examples -- music, plays, novels, movies -- where humor has been injected into very serious subject matter.
