I took film crit Mr. Z a couple years ago, it was a pretty good class overall. His lectures werent always the best, but he made some interesting points and did seem to know a lot about film history. My advice for this class would just be to pay close attention to the movies and what Mr. Z says about them.

I feel like a freshman class, even if it is honors, shouldn't be this difficult. I've always been a strait-A student and yet I got a B both semesters of his class. Truth be told the kids in my class were mostly all loud and disrespectful and I can't say that if I were in Mr. Z's shoes I would have treated the class as a whole any different. He did actually seem to know what he talked about and could be was funny, but had very little patience and wouldn't explain if we asked for clarification.

Snore... That describes his class in a nutshell, nothing more to say, just typing to fill out the 100 letter requirement.

Mr Zalewski is nothing spectacular, and he is kinda boring to be honest. He is educated, but tends to grade you based off his opinion of you. Not an overly hard class, but it isn't exactly hard to fal

I fall asleep like everyday in this class. But I'm glad we're reading a lot of books, because some of the other english classes have only read one or two.

He is alright. I have him for Film Crit and the class is pretty hard cause we don't have very many assignments, so you have to pay attention but he knows what he is talking about.
