You may watch one movie and do a write up for extra credit. For the write-ups, you must watch the movie, and then write about how it reinforces or contradicts what you have read in your class text books. The write-up must be 2/3rds of a page for each 60 minutes of video watched. Depending on the length of the movie and quality of the writing, the assignment is worth 2-3 points.
