movie freax!

Here's a pic of me and my two faithful students-- Erica and Sunny-- from the very informal Movie English course I taught. We saw "Ice Age" and "Hitch," watching the movies on Mondays and Wednesdays in half-hour blocks and then discussing them for an hour.

Not exactly heavy on substance, these films, though "Ice Age" did make my girls cry. It turns out the students were more touched by the reunion of the human father and child than I was. Me, I was happy to see Diego the sabertooth tiger back on his feet. My girls saw Diego's return from near-death as typical Hollywood; can't say I disagree. We Yankee wankers don't muck around too much in tragedy and gloom; that's more the province of Korean and German film! Ha ha!

The class pic, taken with Erica's phone cam (she's in the middle):
