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.

Do you think violent video games can affect the way a person reacts to actual violent situations? In this movie Ben, who plays violent games, is often overcome with fear when facing actual violent situations. Do you think that’s an accurate depiction? If you have seen the movie, do you think Ben’s actions in the final scene are consistent with his earlier reactions?
