so i finally finished that hard and grueling semester. here are the grades
film and literature F
color theory C-
Color theory. I am very surprised that i passed this one. I had to make pictures using color pencils and blend the colors by coloring with one, then coloring over it with another. Because I am completely devoid of artistic talent and because i have a brain processing disorder, i had to go get one of the light tablets and put the pictures of me on top of then then trace the lines. My pictures still lacked any realistic depth, and every time i walked behind another student to see what they were doing, I became insanely jelous. Luckily Axel insisted on correcting some things in my pictures. And I let him. Good thing too because there's no way i would have passed. I had already ruined the drawings. so Axel made them just good enough to get me a passing grade, but not good enough to get the pictures put on the wall for display. Because only artists can have their art shown in the hall for display. And i'm not an artist.
I'm really angry that i failed film and lit. I attended every session and sat through every single movie that we had to watch. Even though most of the time i didn't watch the movie and just played my PSP. I didn't really participate all that much because all of the assingments were with groups and everyone was a movie buff. But who cares i still did all the requirements right? I have a feeling that i failed because of some negative comments i made in the written assingments regarding the movies reservior dogs and kiss kiss bang bang that we had to watch.
[spoiler] For reservior dogs, I basically said that the only good metaphor from this film was the fact that evil always destroys itself. other than that i found its obsessant use of the F word to be higly imature. i mean i say the F word a lot IRL but to that level just strikes me as immature. I also dissagreed about the use Roy Orbinson's "stuck in the middle with you" to really not be that brilliant as everyone made it out to be. but no. my teacher insisted that Tarantino is a genius for choosing that song [/spoiler]
And now for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
When asked about how the scenes carry through. i said "It feels like someone wrote out all the scenes and then when they were taking them to the studio dropped it. spilling all the pages out. Due to a time shortage, the writer put all the pages in a random order then handed it to the director." If he did fail me for this then it's not fair. it was nothing more than an opinion. On both films.
