Film 2700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C+

I skipped almost all the classes and ended up with an A+. All grades come from breakout session with a TA. I had no interest in this class. You'll have projects, tests. He gives you the test questions and the questions on the final too

Film 2700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you have to take this class as a core requirement, you should definitely take it with him. He posts his notes online, communicates using twitter, and gives you the exam questions before the test. Doesn't get simpler than him. Take him! He's funny, and a really chill teacher

FILM 2700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a great lecturer, but the breakout sections and heavy weight on participation is not fun. Unless you're big on discussion or a film major/minor, I would recommend taking a different elective. Most of the movies are boring and half of them are in a different language. You have to use twitter in his class to keep up, which sucked cus I hate it.

He is NOT funny but he tries really hard to be. He often gets out of topic & tries to appeal to his audience that has fallen asleep. The good thing is that the test include almost everything he goes over and that going to his lecture is not necessary. He is NOT funny or cool.

Film2700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's SUUUUPER talkative, but really kind. He gives you the answers for the test in advance, so you can study, but tests are only like 10% each.2 projects and 2 exams and participation which was worth like 35%. The class subject is rather boring, but he somewhat makes it fun. The movies you watch in class are silent until like the midpoint....

film 2700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Such an easy class. Sure he rambles but it's usually about films, so if you have any interest in film at all (And I don't mean you thought Avengers was cool, like, you actually care about films), then it's interesting at the very least. And he has study guides so you have no excuse to do badly. Easy A. Counts for graduation. Done deal.

Dr.Roberts is that guy. He will actually make you look at film in a different perspective. People will complain about him rambling but if you pay attention he is educating you. He is a cool dude. The tests are too easy and its hard to fail. Lectures are not mandatory and neither is the book. Go learn something with him def #1 professor
