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.

How many characters are killed or maimed in this film? Are these deaths mourned? Who are the countless victims that result from the collateral damage produced during crime sprees?

According to an MTV interview, Seth Rogen envisioned his Green Hornet character as a male version of heiress Paris Hilton. What difficulties are faced by children born to parents who have accomplished great things? How challenging is it to make a name for yourself? Is the Green Hornet character a fair depiction?

How does this movie glamorize crime? How does the soundtrack make the mayhem seem less horrific? How does this superhero differ from others?
