As you watched Reagan (2011), what most surprised you about a) the former president and b) the 1980s?
Why is the 1980s considered "the era of the modern blockbuster"? Did the blockbuster begin in this decade? What was the first one(s)?
Based on Prince's and Sartelle's essays, list at least 8 themes we can expect to encounter in our consideration of 1980s films. Did you jot down any of these in your Post-Screening Response Monday night?
Visually explain 2 of Sartelle's categories: The Triumphal Mode, Multiculturalism, The White Man As Victim. Think of this as a tiny comic strip or graphic novel. You might embed historical/cultural images, film stills, and/or memes (funny is always good!). Underneath, briefly discuss why you selected these images.
