Movie Report

 
Students will watch one of the movies listed below and write a 700-word report. Some of the films are available free on youtube, others about $3.00 dollars on amazon.com instant video store. If you want to watch a film not on the list, contact the instructor for approval.
In this report, you will first detail what kind(s) of stereotype(s), prejudice, AND discrimination (the 3 components of bias) is involved in the film. For example, is it the bias against one’s race? Gender? Sexual orientation? Social class? Or others? What is the stereotype(s), attitude(s), and behavior(s) associate with the bias? You can also explain, if proper, the explicit vs. implicit prejudice shown in the film. This part should be 100 words or more.
Second, you will examine the potential reasons of the bias. Why do the perpetrators do what they do? Is it because of the social contexts they are in? The process of socialization? Peer pressure? Self-defense? Their personality? Or else? Also, how much is the bias justified? Be sure to apply the concepts from the textbook and/or Allport’s book (therefore, cite the textbook and/or Allport’s book, but make sure do not directly quote the book—paraphrase instead). This part should be 300 words or more.
Finally, discuss the consequences or possible consequences of the bias on the victims. Go in depth and analyze the psychological and/or physical impacts of bias on them AND on others around them. Also, how will the community or even the society potentially be influenced by the bias? This part should be 300 words or more.
The film list
1. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967) (free on youtbue)
2. Remember The Titans (2000) (available on amazon.com)

Also:
1. For this paper, no references are required. However, if you have references from peer-reviewed journals, that will increase the likelihood of a good grade.
Important issues:
1. Length: make sure you meet the requirement
3. IMPORTANT: Do NOT directly quote from any articles. Paraphrase instead. If I see another direct quote I’ll deduct a great deal of points.
4. Even if you have cited a study, you CANNOT copy-and-paste any content from that study like it is your idea.
5. ABSOLUTELY NO INTERNET SOURCES. This should be a scientific report, NOT Dr. Phil’s talk.
6. Whatever studies you have cited in your paper MUST be in your reference list.

Please read the instruction carefully. I dont want any sources or references on this essay. Its a discussion question so “NO SOURCES”Thank you
Stanislavski developed a series of exercises and techniques for performers.
1) Must always maintain a state of physical and vocal relaxation: this means that unwanted tension has to be eliminated and that the performer must all times attain a state of physical and vocal relaxation
2) Find the character’s inner truth: means their thought and emotions
3) Perfect their ability to play within an Ensemble: means that performers do not act alone; they interact with other people. Stanislavsky was aware that many performers tend to stop acting, or lose their concentration, when they are not the main characters in a scene or when someone is talking. This tendency destroys the through line and causes the performers to move into and out of a role. That, in turn, weakens the scene of ensemble-the playing together of all the performers
4) Develop their own importance of specific/express specific emotions terms of specific details: this means that a performer should never try to act in general, he said, and should never try to convey feeling such as fear or love in some vague, amorphous way. In life, Stanislavsky said, we express emotions in terms of specifics, performers must find similar concrete activities. The performer must also conceive of the situation in which a character exists-what Stanislavsky referred to as the given circumstance-in terms of specific
5) Discover their character’s given circumstances. Must explore the What? Why? How? Any scene: this means that the performer’s attention must always be focused on a series of physical actions linked by the circumstances pf the play
Which of these excercises/techniques do you think is most important for the actor? Why

CINEMATIC ANTECEDANT CRITICAL RESPONSE PROMPT

CINEMATIC ANTECEDANT CRITICAL RESPONSE PROMPT
Write a brief critical response (2-3pp, double-spaced. Thoughtful titles, font size no larger than #12, uniform 1” margins around all four sides of the page please) to one of the cinematic antecedents to the Film Noir Genre — either The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919), or Little Caesar (1931) — that you have viewed. A solid response to a movie provides the writer’s critical assessment of a film and its cinematic techniques supported by evidence the writer gathers from the film. It is not a plot synopsis or the enthusiastic blurbs of publicity hype. Use the present tense when writing your response and avoid words such as “great’’, “excellent,” “bad,” and the all-encompassing “really good”. Instead, consider elements like setting, theme (main idea), mise-en-scene (what is before the camera), cinematography (lighting and camera use), sound, special, effects, or symbols/symbolism. Remember, you are drafting a very short paper, so it is better to discuss one single feature in depth rather than attempt to cover all possibilities. Focus your thoughts instead. Ready? Set? Discuss!
Additional Notes:
1) Although it is true that good writing often takes risks, originality in style or thought will not necessarily excuse serious deficiencies.
2) Conversely, correctness – the mere absence of surface errors – does not automatically qualify an essay for any particular grade.
3) Essay grades reflect the performance on the page NOT the amount of time, or effort made in producing the paper.
4) Grades in the C-F range mean that you should make several appointments to work with a writing tutor on various drafts of upcoming assignments for help developing, clarifying, and refining your ideas and/or eradicating problems with grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
5) Consistent problems with grammar, spelling, and/or punctuation in your papers also suggest that you to begin consulting a handbook like Diana Hacker’s A Pocket Style Manual 6th Edition. Make it part of your writing and revising routine!
