|How We Determine Our Grades|
After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.
Mixing genres isn’t uncommon. Romantic comedies (When In Rome), horror thrillers (The Village), dramatic comedies (Everybody’s Fine) fantasy romance (Twilight) and erotic thrillers (Chloe) all combine different genres. Even sci-fi action films (Wolverine) have been around for a while. But do you think the western genre works with sci-fi? Why or why not?
Many of the characters in this movie lose their memories of their past lives, at least temporarily. What are the challenges they face because of that? What difficulties does the memory loss pose for their loved ones?
Hollywood seems to be obsessed with youth. How does that impact aging actors? Do you think it is easy to be an older man or older woman in the film business? What kind of roles are most often available to seasoned performers?
