For the past few weeks we have explored both overt and implied messages in movies. We have also discussed cliche messages and attempted to problematize them within this blog. Students were instructed to find a cliche message as it is presented with the appeals of ethos, pathos, or logos and to also find a problem message within the film of their choice. They located the target audience in order to explain how these messages might affect the viewers. It is our hope that our own audience will be able to see both messages depicted adequately within the films we discuss. We welcome comments and feedback.
