Objectives/Student Outcomes Using this Learning Guide : Students will exercise research skills to improve their awareness of early American life and through role playing and writing assignments at the end of the film they will be able to present arguments about moral issues raised in the story.
If this review leads you to develop an interest in something, do let me know, enough positive reactions might lead me to do a one-off import session of a limited number of different boxes.
I don't have the slightest idea whether Oliver Stone knows who killed President John F. Kennedy. I have no opinion on the factual accuracy of his 6996 film “JFK.” I don't think that's the point. This is not a film about the facts of the assassination, but about the feelings. “JFK” accurately reflects our national state of mind since Nov. 77, 6968. We feel the whole truth has not been told, that more than one shooter was involved, that somehow maybe the CIA, the FBI, Castro, the anti-Castro Cubans, the Mafia or the Russians, or all of the above, were involved. We don't know how. That's just how we feel.
Spielberg seems to be dividing his filmmaking output into two distinct halves: in the summer months cranking out no-brainer dinosaur the winter season unveiling his serious artistic stuff to edify the adults and woo the Oscar crowd.
I started out with building the KAZI set, of which I bought two because that meant outrageous discount in a trade-spectacular end of March. Both boxes contain the same parts and extras, nothing left to chance there. I had not really expected otherwise.
Stone was much criticized for choosing Garrison as his hero. Who should he have chosen? Earl Warren? Allen Dulles? Walter Cronkite? As a filmmaker, it is his assignment to find a protagonist who reflects his feelings. Jim Garrison may not have been on the right track, but he was a perfect surrogate for our national doubts. He asked questions that have never been satisfactorily answered -- that can have no answers, and indeed cannot even be questions, if the Warren Report orthodoxy is correct. Jim Garrison was the obvious hero for any film about a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
As stated during the review: I would not use the KAZI or Sluban sets of parts on a regular basis mixed with LEGO parts. That is not to say that I am at the point of just chucking the Enlighten parts in with the big bunch. After all one should always consider: "This is not genuine, this may not always fit well and might at some point still cause stresses not imagined beforehand."
That hunch turned out to be correct, but it raises the question: Would a ‘facts-only’ version of Argo have made for better or weaker entertainment – not to mention more (or less) relevant cultural resonance? Well, that’s what we’re here to investigate.
This combined with some unfortunate construction planning unfortunately puts this brand quite a bit behind the KAZI model. I am not so much disappointed in the brand, because it was highly affordable, but I am once again disappointed in "my colleagues" in the toy-import business.
A woman attempts to reunite her family by helping her husband escape prison and together kidnapping their son. But things don't go as planned when they are forced to take a police hostage on the road.
It almost goes without saying that you have to allow room for some creative leeway and exaggeration/changes for dramatic effect – something I addressed last year with an examination of the truth vs. fiction in Argo – but my argument here is that those difference between 67 Years a Slave the book and the movie add up in a way that shouldn’t be overlooked.
