Still shot from the movie: The Rocker.

The Rocker

The life of Robert "Fish" Fishman (Rainn Wilson) is like "the big one" that got away. During the 1980s, he was kicked out of his rock band just before the group attained superstar status. But after twenty years of being a little minnow, the drummer gets a second chance to cast his hook into the pond of stardom--thanks to his nephew's high school band. Get the movie review and more. »

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 are the benefits of learning to play a musical instrument? When you listen to music, which instruments do you notice? What instrument do you imagine being able to play?

Are drinking and partying a necessary aspect of being a “rock star” or an assumed byproduct of the job? Can you think of music celebrities that don’t fit this stereotype?
