    This movie was over all really good. The pace starting out was a bit slow, but once the movie got going things got really good. the director did a fantastic job of showing the distant relationship between father and son, also it shows that unique teaching methods, as unorthodox as they may be, that work when teaching structured boys how to let loose with something as simple as poetry. the Cinematography used really captivates the audience and encompasses the theme of the movie.

    The "Dead Poets Society" is awesome. Not only is an exciting non-action film, it is an emotional look on a bunch of great characters, settings, and themes. The plot line is gripping, with the viewer not sure of the characters' choices and decisions as the movie progresses. The dialogue is wonderfully written, and the movie captures each characters personality well through every piece of dialogue.
    Everyone in this film played their part, and they played it well. Robin Williams soared…

    O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
    The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
    The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
    While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.
    O Captain!My Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
    Rise up—for you the flag…

    I feel the reading and reciting poetry would be fun if the teacher wasn't strict.

    I feel that poetry would be important to learn because it gives kids freedom.

    In certain situations there needs to be a strict teacher and a more free teacher.

    A good teacher should teach students how to love to learn and wether the teacher has to get closer to the students to reach that objective.

    My parents raised me to do what ever I want…

    This movie is really good but there were some shots that were just.. Not so good but the class in the movie is a poetry class a POETRY CLASS there getting all worked up over a poetry class I find that ridicules but I guess poetry could be useful for creative thinking etc but the parents of these students are terrible they are controlling their lives and it's terrible especially if you don't want to do whatever they want you…

    The relationship between student and teacher can be a very bad thing or a good one. In Dead Poets, Mr. Keating had a good relationship with his students. Their relationship gave them bravery to start the Dead Poets society again. From the very beginning their relationship with Keating caused them to rebel, if in little ways, until at the end they completely refused to go wight the system.
    While Keating encouraged free thinking, Niels parents did not. In no way…

    I enjoyed this film very much. I think the pace and the cinematography of this film were great! The different shots were great. My favorite shot was of the boys running through the forest to the cave, and how it made it dark and mysterious like, "what is going to happen to them?" The last shot of Todd in the film was very creative but very random. I think that the acting was great, it was very believable. There is…

    Do you think that you can enjoy reading, writing, and reciting poems? Why or why not?
    No because it takes to long and it has to be entertaining and I found this movie not that entertaining.

    Do you think it is important to learn about poetry? Why or why not?
    Yes it is important to learn about poetry so you would learn more words and about the world.



    FILM STYLE: Do you like the pace of the film? Do you…

    This was a great movie, the pacing was perfect, the subject was interesting, the visuals were great, the acting was good, and the characters were believable. There were a couple of things that bugged me, but they in no way spoiled the movie for me. There were no wasted shots in the movie, which made it faster paced and more entertaining. This also had one of the best dialogue in any movie I have seen, it was smooth, entertaining, natural, and helped to develop the characters.
