Those are 3 of the films that got me so into Film. Probably along with "Taxi Driver" and "Breathless" the five most influential for why I got a film major to go with my business degree. Great, great choices.
Un Chien Andalou is probably going to scar those high schoolers for life though, man.
drew your thoughts on the LOTR series and batman begins/thedarkknight?
also in what ways do you want to touch your students and leave a lasting imprint on their lives?
I really like to watch them. I love to sit in the dark and stare at them for hours.
I also like the LOTR series and Nolan's Batman films.
Started back here today...was scopin' out the local bus stops for talent
The Fambuleh friendly version of Beast Mode
Could use some 'The Asylum' flicks iyam.
Today, I showed them how a flip book uses the Phi Phenomenon and Persistence of Vision to give the illusion of moving pictures, and they looked at me like I was a fucking wizard or something. More than half of them had never seen a flip book before. Buncha dumbasses.
Had fun with my 5th period class today. Had some extra time so we played a movie trivia game called Pass the Popcorn. It was the entire class vs me. For every answer they got right, I gave a Jolly Rancher to every one of them. For every answer I got right, I took a Jolly Rancher away from every one of them.
Every single person in the class now owes me 2 Jolly Ranchers.
want to explain the rules of this game?
I really enjoy this thread.
It's a set of cards with the year and genre of a movie, and you can pick a category clue about that movie either: CAST, CHARACTER, PLOT or QUOTE.
I let the whole class guess as a team on a card, while I did mine by myself. I didn't miss one.
They knew they were fucked when I got "1982. Sci-Fi" I asked for the plot clue. Here was the exchange:
Student: "A retired cop..."
Me: "Blade Runner"
Class: "What the fuck!?!?"
What kind of dumbass guesses did they make for their cards?
Just buy the cards for the game online?
where can I buy this?
the fact that audrew is responsible for molding the minds of the younger generation does give me hope for the future
does it give you hope for a america though?
rated on potential of course.
Damn, high school doesn't start till September around here.
You can get it pretty much anywhere. Online at Amazon.com or in the board game section at Wal-Mart or Target.
Game's only about $20
They only missed on 2 movies....I believe they were the Life of Brian and American Beauty.
american beauty sucked anyway. might be the most pretentious movie i've ever seen
Shit went down today!
Friday, a kid in Channel One class stole my fucking laptop charger when I was out of the room. So, there's only 14 kids in the class so it's not like I have a shitload of people to try and track down. The whole time I'm investigating, I keep asking myself, "Who the fuck steals a laptop charger?"
I eventually scare the good kids in class enough so that one of them flips and mentions dumbass in my class not only:
said A) he broke his laptop charger which is identical to mine
but B) he was going to "have to get a new one from a teacher"
Dumb shit lies about it when I call him on his shit, so I kicked him the fuck out of my class and into another one and they suspended him for a week.
You get the charger back?
Fuck no! Little bastard only had his BROKEN charger on him, which he claims is mine. He claims he took mine "as a joke" and that he accidentally broke it. Bullshit. He didn't have time to switch out his shitty one with my working one. He has to pay to replace it though.
My advanced class started a Fantasy Football league. My team name:
San Diego Laptop Chargers
I also considered I Could Give an F.
