    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Cinema seems like an "easy A" class in which you only watch movies and relax. Instead, this class taught me how to break the movie structure down to how the scenes and characters work together in every situation of the film.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning the history of how film came into study and also how the ideas of stereotypes came into film to relate to the audience of each movie. It is a tough course because you have to either try to relate to awkward situations and tell about them. Students taking the course also have to learn and entire new vocabulary and find different meanings to movies that they may have watched before and had no idea what the real meaning was.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice students could get for this class is to learn the vocabulary as soon as it is given. Knowing the vocabulary will make the class more interesting and enjoyable for each student learning the history of film and how deep films get.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone. Not too hard, but requires a lot of writing about movies.

    Course highlights:

    It really opened my eyes about movies. I learned to look at them in a new way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to take good notes and go to class every day.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to someone who likes to watch movies. Dr. Dunbar explains the vocabulary and the confusing parts to the movies to the class well. He is an interesting character and I would highly recommend any class he teaches.

    Course highlights:

    Before I took this class I was not interested in movies. After taking the class for most of the semester, I find myself enjoying movies more than I used to. Also, I am able to identify the stereotypes and symbols in movies.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main tip that I would give a student is to learn the vocabulary. On the tests there is a fill in the blank part, and if the vocabulary is not learned it will be difficult. Also, do not miss class. The main grade in the class comes from attendance, so it is always good to go to the class.
