Strange choice for a school? Classic movie, very graphic. Loses its way a little towards the end maybe?

I watched Schindler's List when I was in grade nine...and the teacher went against the regulation and didn't let parents sign a release form...

that is a really good film, if you liked that, you should watch band of brothers, directed by Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg

Saving Private Ryan is a great movie, and I also recommend Band of Brothers :tmb: I remember watching Romeo + Juliet, or what it's called, at school a year ago.

I think both Schindlers List and Saving Private Ryan are shown in schools these days to raise questions of morality and to give children a sense of what happened.


and my oh was an extra in Band of brothers....milling around in uniform! ;o)

My Head of Department shows Seven (he teaches the Bone Collector as the Media section of the GCSE... I teach James Bond ;) )... he got round it by saying he 'didn't realise it was an 18'!!!

Very naughty man, my HoD...

There again, the Head of Media teaches Rita, Sue and Bob, too... (*shudders*. Nasty film!)

We can basically get away with showing what we like in class, as long as it can be tied to what we are teaching. I've shown Titanic, Clueless (it's based on Jane Austen's Emma), the X Files (looking at how diegetic and non diegetic sound increases tension in filmmaking), Dr. No, Die Another Day, Kenneth Brannagh's Frankenstein, clips of Interview With the Vampire... I am cutrrently working out a way I can teach Pink Floyd's The Wall (not so much the film... I want to use the album in some way, though. Managed to work music by Fantomas in to my lessons earlier on this year, though... :D )

Saving Private Ryan is one of my favourite films :tmb:

The only films I can remember seeing at school were Romeo & Juliet (the old version with Olivia Hussey) and On the Waterfront! But this was a long time ago as I am an old gal :p

Saving Privat Ryan was great. We didn't watch it in school though. We watched Romeo + Juliet in English and it sucks. He should have been Juliet. lol
