1. Week 10
For your initial post, select one question from each question set below, and write a response that draws upon what you learned from both articles:
Question Set 1 Do movies still matter in today’s world? Have films become irrelevant? Do you think there is a shift toward greater viewership of TV shows over films: why or why not? Are made-for-TV movies more popular than movies made for the theatre?
Question Set 2 Have news/reviews of movie festivals (such as Sundance, Cannes) influenced your decision to go to a movie? How do you decide what movie to watch? Do you go to the movies anymore; Why or why not?
Question Set 3 If you do, include where you watch your movies–in theatres, on TV at home, online…does location matter to enjoyment of movie? What kinds of themes would you like to see movies start exploring? And, do movies reflect us (society, culture, time period, trends etc)?
