Words after movies

热度 4已有 1509 次阅读2009-10-18 18:14 |

My key word today is the word “stereotype”. Many people don’t know what it means, and some people take it as the meaning of “old” or some other words. Well the word has many meanings, and I want to take two movies to explain the meanings.  

         First and foremost, the movie is called”School of rock”, which was produced in 2003. And, a mainstream of the movie is the word “Rock”. In the movie the main actor Mr. S (who is a fake musical teacher in a private primary school) is really not a stereotype person, for his performance and teaching methods for his students. He pays more attention on his life of Rocknroll, and he lets his students to forget about learning and their past; what he teaches is to take down the “MAN”, and I think this kind of behavior is to be not stereotype. Just like the lines in the movie:”The MAN could be everywhere, and he could be everyone in charge in the world…” This attitude I can call it a spirit of being special. Then Mr. S setup his own Rock band with his little students, and chooses everyone to be a member in the team of rock, and he discovers everyone’s gift on music and makes them stand on their own position. However, he is found a fake teacher, and the headmaster is embarrassed by the fact, and the kids’ parents are angry and shocked. But, the movie is not a stereotype one, which is not a traditional one for education, and its purpose is to free everybody’s mind and lets everybody to fulfill their own dreams. At last, the kids and Mr. S really have done a good job on the show, and the parents and the headmaster accept his attitude on teaching.

         For the short introduction of the film School of Rock, you make know what is "stereotype”, and it means people do something following the rules or conventions, etc. Without creativity and passion on something people are interested in, the students cannot do something special, or I can say they are living in the world of preparing and deciding by their parents, not for their own life and future.

         And the second movie I would like to introduce is the one called “Accepted”, which is also a movie of school, but this time is much crazier. It is about an unaccepted high school student called B, who setups a fake university for himself. Yet, it is very interesting that many unaccepted ones also got an accepted letter from his fake university. Of course, B has no experience of managing a university, but tries his best to let every student enjoy the life of in his university. Like the lines “no exams, no paper in S.H.I.T. (abbreviation for this fake university.)”, everyone could do whatever they want at campus. B really breaks the stereotype rules and conventions of modern university. At last, his job is accepted by his parents and the Ministry of Education board. It is an exceptional university ever having in the world, though it is a fake one, but that is an ideal place for someone who is special.

         Nowadays, the education of postgraduates in China is sucked, and no creativity and passion of the students and teachers, who are living a stereotype life every day and waiting to graduate or find a decent job. Let’s take look at other country’s kids or students, they have enough free time to do whatever they want, and the freedom let their countries become more and more unconventional and perfect. The journals of Nature, Science, or even PNAS are all occupying by western countries and leading the global academic field, so as the Nobel Prize winners, they are all westerners, not a real Chinese can reach to it.

So ladies and gentleman, let’s take a moment to think of the problem of being stereotype, how should we make a change? Being special, being unconventional, being exceptional, being geeks and so on and so forth.
