Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who loves sci-fi films. This course takes select films and encourages students to think about them beyond their entertainment value. After this course, you'll never watch and think about sci-fi films the same way again!
The best part of this class was simply watching the movie and discussing different topic points raised by the professor. From The Thing to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we were encouraged to analyze the films while contemplating questions about personhood, personal identity, and ethics. Personally, I learned a great deal about how difficult it is to define personhood, and identify the qualities that makes a being a person.

Advice for students:
I would simply suggest watching and enjoying the films, taking good notes, and asking challenging questions.
