i was initially very excited when i saw this new addition to the class planner. watching movies and writing some essays didn’t seem to be too bad, and i liked my TA, donghyun, as he was nice and clearly enjoyed his job. however, i absolutely hated this class. hanscom was quite possibly the worst lecturer i’ve encountered at ucla. he’s such a disorganized person who went on the most useless tangents. was he passionate about the topic? yes. but his passion took away from the topic itself. i literally could not bear to listen to him. i would have never gone to class if it wasnt for the pop quizzes he gave. most of the movies assigned were not engaging, even for someone who loves korean movies. his lectures felt like they were irrelevant and ended up not being extremely useful. the assigned readings were absolutely useless and were never tested in any capacity. if you’re going to assign readings, at least do something with them. knowing i spent tuition money on this joke of a class will haunt me. i have not learned a single thing about film history and feel like i wasted 10 weeks of my life on such a messy class. hanscom’s like that professor who is nice and you can tell is trying, but the course fell very flat. don’t take this class. take another GE that will be easier and likely more interesting.

This class was definitely a lot of readings, but they were very interesting. Before coming into this class, I really hated readings. But the readings in this class made me think more deeply and I now have the desire to read more. Professor Hanscom is also very very knowledgable, nice and approachable. His language ability impressed me.
In terms of the class itself, you write weekly posts answering one question regarding the readings you did. Have one midterm on materials covered roughly in week 1-5 and a final paper. As long as you do the readings and listen in class, the midterm was not that tough. I really liked this class despite the amount of readings assigned and I would definitely try to take more classes with this professor in the future.
