I didn't get a chance to watch this Tesla/Edison documentary yet but will soon! https://www.youtube.com/
I like to show this analysis after Jaws. It shows WHY Jaws is great. And it talks about Hitchcock, too. :) https://www.youtube.com/
Here's pretty much my favorite Spielberg scene ever. An amazing introduction to Marion, our feisty heroine of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It's all done in one shot with no cuts, a style which is nicknamed "the Spielberg Oner." https://www.youtube.
I really wanted to show you all this gorgeous video about Japanese director Akira Kurosawa.
Epic Rap Battles has an amazing throwdown between Spielberg, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and Michael Bay. It would be MA or R rated, with no clean ERB version, so viewer discretion advised! You should get a lot of the jokes now after taking History of Cinema. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wYtG7aQTHA
I realized the last week of class I HAD shown you all a Kubrick clip...he directed Spartacus! But most of the ones he's famous for are so disturbingly R rated I didn't want to risk it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Stanley_Kubrick Have you heard this popular song Renegades? https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=-SytFteQnYY
All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids (New American Cinema)
All hail the outlaws
Spielbergs and Kubricks
Did you know who Michael Bay was before this epic rap battle? We didn't get out of the 1980s so we never talked about him. https://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=2THVvshvq0Q I love what this analyzer says about how he's borrowed his shots from West Side Story and Star Wars.
