Irresistible Movie Review

Student: Hey, Mrs. Bees, have you seen Avatar yet?

Me: No, not yet. I want to see it though.

Student: It’s so good. You have to go see it. This weekend.

Me: Yeah? Maybe I will.

Student: It’s, like, my new favorite movie. It’s even better than Transformers 2.

    That’s a riot.

    It really IS a stunning film. I think that a lot of the criticism I’ve read about it is justified (that it’s a “white guilt” film, that it’s racist and sexist and ableist are all true… to a point), but I really do think that the message is worthwhile. When it comes out on DVD, I’ll be making a purchase, and I’m pretty sure that it’ll show up on my literature curriculum at some point, as well.

    Neither one has a particularly new/fascinating story*, but Avatar *does* definitely get high marks for visual impact, without *quite* as much violence as Transformers 2

    Ringing endorsement, for sure.

The Bee’s Knees

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
