Pretty easy, overall.
This was a pretty average course to me. The information was interesting but we did the same thing every week. Monday a group would present their chapter and then we'd watch half the movie and on Wednesday we'd finish the movie and discuss it. Very predictable and repetitious. However, I did enjoy the majority of the films that we watched and I am glad to be checking off two different general classes in this class.
I learned a lot about society and the different cultures in America. We discuss a lot of social injustices throughout American history since film was born including race, gender, sexuality, class, masculinity/femininity, etc. It was interesting to see how each different demographic is displayed in film and what affect that has on society.

Advice for students:
Make sure you participate in class and show up!! A good portion of your grade in this class is attendance and participation so definitely go to class. Half of the class is watching films so it's not difficult anyway. Also, make sure you do each week's assignment, it isn't hard but the points add up a lot.
