Everybody knows (see what I did there!) you loved “Pump Up The Volume!” But for those who didn’t – what a bummer. Great soundtrack though – The Pixies, ATL, Leonard Cohen, Cowboy Junkies, Henry Rollins, and The Beastie Boys!?!
Seeing it again after all these years, I enjoyed it that much more.
You will get your exam back next week along with your quiz.
Your TA should respond to the first 3 blogs by Wednesday, if you haven’t received comments by Thursday, email Jess and myself… letting us know who your TA is too!
For next Monday – please read this carefully…
Have Rodman’s FILM chapter read and ready to go…
Your TA will be sending you a second film via wetransfer.com – if you have not received the film by Thursday, email Jess.
You have two options – CHOOSE ONE! See details below:
Option A: Two SEPARATE BLOGS – 500-750 words each
Option B: One longer blog – 1000-1500 words
Option A: Write a blog response to each film (2 films= 2 blogs) – DO NOT SUMMARIZE!!!!!! I’ve seen the films.
A review of what you liked, what you didn’t… ALWAYS INCLUDE WHY!!! What did you feel while watching… think of ONE word for EACH film (obviously use a different word)… and use that word to write your piece.
Think of ALL we’ve discussed so far — the subjects, the discussions, the videos… the readings…
Look up some reviews online – see what they said. Don’t forget to source if you use their ideas/work.
Really get into the work! Really think about that word!
Option B is easy -DO NOT SUMMARIZE EITHER FILM…. Compare and discuss the two films… tying them together in whatever way you want.
Maybe compare a character, a storyline… or other subjects.
Use things we’ve discussed throughout the semester.
Remember – choose 1, option A or option B.
OK! That’s it… BLOG HARD!
See ya’ll next week.
