|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.
What is the appeal of the U.S. / Russian conflict in scripts? How does this movie modify the Cold War relationship between these two countries? What new enemies are being depicted in films?
How have terrorist attacks altered the action genre? Can you think of other purely fictitious movies that reflect real world trends? Why does a “reality component” make the story more believable and interesting?
How many product placements can you identify in this film? When technology fails, are the products ever branded with actual company names or logos?
