Most Controversial Films of All Time The Moon is Blue (1953) D. Otto Preminger Well-bred people in the 1950s didn't use words like "virgin," "seduce" and "mistress" in public, but this mild sex farce did and became a cause celebre. This daring sex farce and romantic comedy was the first major studio-produced film from Hollywood that was released without an approved code seal from the Production Code Administration (PCA). It was deliberately made as a test case by its producer/director Otto Preminger. Despite its lack of a seal of approval and the controversy, it proved to be a major hit film (grossing $6 million).
Cool Ass Cinema: Reel Bad Cinema THE CYCLOPS 1957James Craig (Russ Bradford), Gloria Talbott (Susan Winter), Lon Chaney (Martin Melville), Tom Drake (Lee Brand), Duncan Parkin (Bruce Barton/The Cyclops) Directed by Bert I. Gordon The Short Version: B.I.G.'s bad, bland 'B' flick is a slight step up from his first gig in 1955 directing giant lizards attacking uninterested humans sharing the screen via bad matte jobs. At least here, there's a snarling, rabid Chaney Jr. to keep your eye on with his despicable performance that's more monstrous than the galley of giggle-worthy monstrosities trotted out in the film. The special effects (and they are certainly "special") are the usual melange of "ghost" critters that crop up in Gordon's flicks.
Comic Creator The Comic Creator invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts (prewriting, pre- and postreading activities, response to literature, and so on). The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. The tool is easy to use, made even easier with the Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics. After completing their comic, students have the ability to print out and illustrate their final versions for feedback and assessment.
movie questions While most of the films on the list are set in high schools or universities, the issues they address are relevant to teachers at all levels. Each movie has four or five questions. I anticipate that you would write equally for each movie, so don’t select a film because it has fewer questions than another one. Before you watch the movie, read through the questions carefully so you know what to look for. 15 Great Free Online File Sharing Alternatives Today’s technology and machines (whether it’s PC or Mac) are certainly capable of processing large original files like .PSD (Photoshop) and .AI (Illustrator) but the bad news is the sharing part aren’t . These files are fairly large in size and cumbersome to share with peers and clients. Two ways we would generally used – e-mailing and sharing via hosting account. Not saying it’s bad but e-mail comes with attachment limitation and usually doesn’t allow anything more than 100Mb. On the other hand sharing via web hosting account allows you to upload as big as your account can take but it also means the file is exposed by anyone who knows its direct path.
