I Am Legend (2007) Will Smith, Alice Braga. When a terrible virus spreads across the planet and turns the human race into bloodthirsty mutants, civilization's last hope for survival lies with scientist Robert Neville, the only person unaffected by the epidemic...9a
The film is really good and well made, making good use of different camera angles. Regular filming from above giving a really interesting shot angle. The make up and facial changes and blood, special effects were very well done, adding on fake teeth and eyes. Make for a lot more realistic characters.
Dangerous Minds (1995): My Educational Psychology instructor at UNCW had our class watch several "teacher" movies and analyze the pedagogy evidenced in the film. (Yes, we had to write a paper on it!) This was a class favorite, along with Stand and Deliver (1988), and Lean on Me (1989). Freedom Writers (2007) would be a great addition to the exceptional-educator example canon! ~M
