List #6

This is a list of movies I watched in my writing class this semester. The class is titled WRA 150: The Evolution of American Thought - American Values and Perspectives in the World of Disney. 

It's a pretty interesting writing class. Basically, we watch Disney movies and analyze them by writing film reviews and analytical papers. 

Here's from the class syllabus: "Though a main focus of the course is on writing, we will focus our readings and writings on the themes, characters, and cultural issues found in Disney features (mostly animated), an institution within American culture. We will look at the concepts of gender, ethnicity, disability, (and class and sexuality which is often embedded within the film) found in the films. The Disney brand is both an American institution and a global empire, and in looking at the films with a critical eye, we will reflect on how the values in the films have helped define what an American is."

And now the list of movies we watched: 
  1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  2. Pretty Woman
  3. Peter Pan
  4. Song of the South
  5. The Jungle Book
  6. The Three Caballeros
  7. Beauty and the Beast
  8. Bolt
  9. Up
  10. Enchanted
