X-Men: First Class

Before they became archenemies waging an on-going battle against one another, Professor X (Charles McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) were classmates and friends during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Working side by side with other Mutants, they fought against a common threat until a rift forced them onto opposing sides of an eternal war. 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.

How can childhood experiences affect a person’s decisions in adulthood? What role does choice have in an individual’s life path?

How does feelings of isolation contribute to the mutants’ outlook on life? Why are some mutations seemingly more acceptable than others? Are there physical or mental challenges in our society that are more easily accepted than others? What are they?

Does setting these fictional characters in real historical events add to or distract from the story? How do you feel about the negative portrayal of military personnel? How have soldiers and others contributed to the freedoms we enjoy now?
