The Hand of God, literally

In Stephen King's The Stand, there's a scene in which a bomb is about to explode, but it's defused just in the nick of time by the hand of God. Literally. The hand of God comes down from the sky and defuses a bomb.

no, the guys HAND OF GOD

no, the guys HAND OF GOD explodes the bomb

Flip that.

I'm pretty sure it set the bomb off. As opposed to defusing it.

Basically the end of the plot for LOST

That show was so jumbled up with plot twists that they had no way to wrap it all up so they decided everyone was dead and they were in purgatory or some junk.

This is weird lol

(FMA - Brotherhood)

Reminds me of that battle between Scar and Wrath. Divine intervention helped Scar from getting killed and also helped him to defeat Wrath

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 02/02/2016 - 21:41
not really

technically his beliefs in a god was talked about during the battle but there wasn't an actual divine intervention the sun just shone onto his blade sure its a massive coincidence but since father consumes an actual god at the time you'd think that would remove any divine intervention

Ex Machina CinemaSins

If you like Ex Machina, and/or comedy you should look up Cinema Sins on Youtube. You'll understand why I suggest this if you've seen at least three of their videos.

Was honestly not expecting to see this

I was on here looking for literary elements for school stuff, then I see Ex Machina and think that i should finally learn what that means. I'm just going though the comments for fun and i see this. I love CinemaSins and i just wasn't expecting to see this on a literary devices websit.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 12/30/2016 - 06:44

Every single Pokemon movie

Not sure if anyone has watched a Pokemon movie in their lifetime, but if you have you'll notice that this literary device is present in almost every single one.

Doesn't Ash die then is brought back to life, by literally Pokemon tears?

what does it mean?

what does deus ex machina even mean?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 05/22/2015 - 16:28
What it means.

Deus ex machina directly translates to "God from the machine." Why this literary device is called god from the machine, I have no idea.

It's a metaphor. When there

It's a metaphor. When there isn't a well thought out plot, or when there's lots of loose threads because the author "painted herself into a corner," a way out must be written as a story needs a conclusion. Therefore, the writer (or machine, as we are speaking metaphorically) produces a plot twist that disguises itself as some sort of spiritual or natural event that happens in the story. To be a true "Deus ex Machina," the event has no relationship to anything in the story, it suddenly appears and things are made to conclude based on this event. The unconnected plot twist is, metaphorically, the god inserted into the story. Hence, the god from the machine.

In greek dramas, they would

In greek dramas, they would literally use a machine of ropes and pulleys to lower a representation or statue of one of their gods onto the stage.

Aeschylus

Specifically in Greek tragedies, yeah, actors playing gods would be on cranes to show that they're flying or something similar. Originally used by Aeschylus to resolve conflict by bringing in these actors playing gods, so in context of this what "Dues Ex Machina" came to mean makes a lot of sense. It's divine intervention that came from machines. In terms of a literary device, the author is the machine bringing in divine intervention.

Legend of Korra.. Still love it though..

Legend of Korra is guilty of this in Season 2 and 3.. and a little in 4 but not really.
Season 2: Jinora. Nuff said.
Season 3: Jinora. Nuff said again.
Season 4: A bit of Toph... yea not going to spoil it :P.

(Either way Legend of Korra will always be my favorite series forever)

LOST and War of the Worlds

I am on the episode of LOST named, "Deus Ex Machina." I don't know the tie-in yet. But, in the movie, "War of the Worlds," Tom Cruise is leading his daughter around fearing from being killed by aliens. All of a sudden, the aliens die and the end.
