Teach me

These are my 10 favorite teachers from film history...

Ranked by how much I'd be willing to listen to them in any regard...not based on the film itself...

  • The Karate Kid

    1.The Karate Kid

    ★★★★★

    Mr. Miyagi

    Not your typical teacher role...but he would be my zenith & one of my favorite characters in film history. If Mr. Miyagi told me to paint the fence...I'm painting that motherfucking fence...

    The reluctant educator...

    Amazing for his ability to break down Shakespeare for the double D's. A man who doesn't want to care...but can't help it as time goes by...
