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.

This script includes some jabs toward North Korea. Do you think entertainment like this makes any difference to real-world political relationships? During the Cold War literally hundreds of movies featured countries behind the Iron Curtain as enemies—is today any different?

G.I. Joe is based on a toy marketed by Hasbro. Is this movie appropriate for children of the age most likely to play with the toy? Do you think the film should be scripted with those younger viewers in mind? Can you think of other toys matched with movies that are appropriate or inappropriate for their target audience? Do you think this is responsible marketing?
