Throughout this class, we have watched several films (Star Wars: A New Hope, Beauty and the Beast (2017), Sky High, etc.) and discussed what made them “good” and “bad.” We have also read several chapters from Ann Hornaday’s book “Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies.”
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. 1 Corinthians 13:11
I think it is natural—although, to go along with the quote above, somewhat childish—to believe that something we like (be it a book, a work of art, a song) is automatically good, and, conversely, something that we dislike is immediately bad. But as we move onwards, we might—I hope—come to the realization that “like” is not synonymous with “good,” and “dislike” is not the same as “bad.” Indeed, it is possible (encouraged?) to appreciate (like) things that are considered bad, and permissible to not like things that are recognized as good.
For this paper, I ask you to consider and define these four terms, exploring the relationship between them. In addition, also consider (s’il-vous plaît) who you believe has the right—and how that right is acquired—to determine issues of quality.
Remember: this is an academic paper, so your paper should have an introduction (with an arguable and defendable thesis), a body, and a conclusion. Be mindful of paragraph and sentence structure. Write with clarity, grace, and concision. I would say write until you are done. There is no word/page count. You have something to say; make a thesis, support it, and wrap it up. (Maybe 3-5 pages) Remember the thesis statement should an “umbrella” statement and be the last sentence in the introductory paragraph.
