It is not my favourite Spielberg film at all but I still have a fondness for it. I found Titanic far too long when I saw it: some things are good in it but, IMO, the love story is unconvincing and it takes ages before that boat starts to sink! Kate, if you like French history and novels, you should try reading "The three Musketeers", by Alexandre Dumas, that takes place in the 17th century Dumas plays a lot with the real history but he knows how to re-create the atmosphere of a period.
Weird teachers I had some too but professional solidarity prevents me to tell more Have a great day everybody! It even had a little "geek chic" thrown in as the kids were playing Dungeons and Dragons in that early kitchen scene. I remember people who were adamant that you just had to see it. The tv show Taxi even had a gag on that phenomenon with the Jim Ignotowski character recruiting people to go see the movie. Now, it seems kind of sappy and quite dated. I went to see Titantic to learn what all the fuss was about. I saw it once and that was enough.
Citizen Kane was fun to discuss in film class, but somehow I never remember to rent it. A lot of "classic" or "important" films are like that for me: boring. You copy, you paste, you enlarge letters, put some pictures, give your expression, of course, and you read it and learn it. And here you go, you have 10 pages report.

Elanor, I heard about three Musketeers. Not about book, about expression. I'll look for it. Wait, I cried on E. Only movie I ever cried on. Every time, on and on. We watched it in school once and I tried not to cry, with hardly any success. It's all gone down when they allowed calculators on maths. When, when?! We are allowed to take calculators only to Physics! I have to show this to my maths professor. About my maths professor, he always makes jokes with us, real jokes. And he says we are his best class and he always gives us less homework.
But he said he has to start practicing on being stricter. I'm in the chat room. If you are giving the impression that the words you've pasted are your own, you've committed plagiarisim. To wit: plagiarism n 1: a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work 2: the act of plagiarizing; taking someone's words or ideas as if they were your own [syn: plagiarization, plagiarisation, piracy] from Dictionary.
If he is now in therapy or has a substance abuse problem, it could probably be traced back to that incident. Loopy, I can't say that I didn't like E. This is probably a bad time to bring this up, but I do like the part where E. Overall, I just don't think it was one of Spielberg's better movies. It is, however, better than Hook. Titanic I just never got. It bothers me to live in a world where that is the highest grossing movie of all time, and when The Phantom Menace came out, I did my best to help it reach the top spot.

My efforts, obviously, failed. I blame Jake Lloyd. I agree with you about Citizen Kane. I don't care about camera angles. I just want to be entertained. Don't forget the deep focus!
I certainly did not mean to imply that you couldn't tough it out. I simply meant that some professors like to cut people down at the knees as a regular activity. I made the joke about certain English profs that you should just bring a tourniquet to class if you were picking up paper, in order to stop the torrential "bleeding" of red ink. On the topic of cutting, and pasting , I gave "my" 7th graders a huge lecture on academic honesty and the differences between quoting, summarizing, and giving credit for ideas not your own, even if the words are your own.

Many of them seemed confused that one cannot just read a report verbatim from the internet and call that "research. The students were explaining friction and Newtonian theories and I was just nodding my head and saying, "So, you guys are good to go on this experiment, right? I'll just watch in awe. When I was in graduate school, we got several lectures from very angry professors about plagiarism.
At that level, people should know better, but some were stupid enough to try it anyway and were expelled from the school. Many schools have honor codes and require students to sign an agreement to hold themselves and others to that honor code. As for the ET discussion, I got nightmares from it.
I was fine while watching the movie but later on, it just wasn't good. I have not seen it since then and I have no desire to at all.
Lying is wrong. Plagiarism is wrong because it is a combination of stealing and lying. I was lucky enough to be a fairly good writer when I was in school, and usually when I wrote something, I wrote it once and that was it. I didn't comprehend the whole "second draft" and "third draft" thing. I thought if you got it right the first time, then what's the point in re-doing it? I had one class where the professor required us to turn in two "pre-" drafts, and I really had trouble with that.
I actually wrote the paper, then went back and "messed it up" to make the two "pre-" drafts to hand in. What a total waste of time and paper. It carried over into my work career, too. When I had to do year-end evaluations of my team, my supervisor wanted me to start working on them in October.

I would just look at him and go "Ummmm I was all "So what's the problem? It was funny because he was frustrated that they didn't need revisions - I just asked him innocently if he had anything he wanted to add or change, and he said "No He was the best! I can't help sobbing like a fool. The first movie that made me cry was "Snoopy, Come Home.
I still think it's a pretty good movie, all things considered.
Loopy We shouldn't forget the fragmented, non-linear narration, either. I was glancing at the paper today at lunch and saw a list of the top 25 movies of all time according to some group of British "experts. I mainly scanned the list to see if any movie involved in our feud made the cut. Sunset Boulevard came in at 25, but I don't count that as a "real" Keaton film.
Playing a has-been actor who spends his time playing Bridge wasn't exactly a stretch. It goes to show you what the experts know. Quick question. My kids school is having drug free awareness week. They dress up each day.
Put a cap on drug day they wore caps. Tomorrow is sock it to drugs day. They are supposed to wear silly socks. Ok I have a pair of solid red baseball socks and a pair of green if I can find them. I can mix-match the socks. I have Harry Potter stickers.
