Pick a genre of film (sci-fi, horror, teen comedy, western, rom-com, superhero, animated, etc.) and analyze at least one film from our current era (something in the last 5 years) and one film from at least one previous era (something from the 1950s-2010). Discuss their similarities (how they fit the conventions of their genre) and then discuss how their differences reflect the cultural mythologies of the eras in which they were produced. This should be the main point you are making in the essay. For instance, if you are analyzing superhero films, you might notice that in the early 80s all superheros were white males, while superheros now are more diverse. Maybe you’ll see that the 80s films’ plots were about stopping villains from taking over Earth, while today’s villains are destroying Earth. Perhaps that reflects the collective fears of corporate takeover of the 80s vs the collective fear of climate change today.Use general summaries of the films, specific examples of scenes and dialogue, and quotes/paraphrase from at least three outside sources (could be essays from our book or credible online sources like Vox, The Atlantic, The New York Times–particularly articles by A.O. Scott) to support and illustrate. (Note: You could also do this with TV shows).
Essay should be 5-6 double-spaced pages in MLA format and a Works Cited page.
