Winter 2019 - I highly recommend taking Professor Creese's class!! He's a nice and humorous guy who's passionate about what he's teaching, and his suggestions to your paper are always critical, useful and easy to follow. The workload is manageable, and all you need to do throughout the quarter is to write three papers. You won't be tested or blamed if you don't read or watch anything. My suggestions to someone who takes this course: 1. You better watch most of the required movies (mine are screwball comedies from the 1930s and 1940s) before the professor talks about them in class, or you will be completely lost and you will have no idea what notes to take. Most times you should watch two 2-hour-long movies each week. I find these comedies super entertaining to watch, so I would seldom regard them as a burden. 2. The text reader is optional and I won't recommend you buying a new one, since all the useful quotes you may need will be given by the professor anyway and the reader is way too expensive. You can survive without any issue if you don't read anything. 3. Take notes! Write down what the professor comments on the movie. Use them in your paper. Use the quotes given in the prompts for paper. This makes writing the paper much easier. 4. You are allowed to rewrite all papers. Be prepared to be disappointed by your first grade. Most students will get a C. As long as you make changes according to professor’s suggestions, even though they may be tiny, you will be guaranteed to get a B or A as the new grade. No office hours required. 5. To international students: do not worry about this class. Professor Creese is very considerate and he will always turn on the subtitles. This class does not require any pre-knowledge about American culture or history. Also he is very tolerant on grammar and format problems.
