Great teacher, but be prepared to read a lot about love. Uses 3 books and 6,7 movies and the short stories from course pack. All very interesting texts, but if you have enough time. Take attendance in the beginning, but attendance not necessary. 2 difficult multiple choice exams, 2 essays and a group presentation. Teacher is chill and very understanding. Never answers Mio, but he makes time to meet you in his office. Recommend him

An Honest review.. Took him for Literature and Film, he is a hard market and his classes are quite boring since he is also a very monotone teacher. He is extremely accomadating and he understands his students. He is knowledgable but his classes can be boring and same goes for the films you watch. Dont think because it is a move class it is not hard. He expects you to read a huge course pack full of readings for his tests and essays.

I always take him lol i love John hes so nice simple and calm. I kinda feel like people dont pay a attention enough to him (me) cuz hes the type of teacher thats like k you want to listen good if not i dont care i wont bother yelling. I recommend sci fi class you watch so many movies which most are good and interesting, have fun debates in class and his tests are easy and straightforward also hes helpful and his classes are not stressful AT ALL not strict AT ALL either.

Nice guy, hard marker, don't anger him because he'll flaunt his degrees at you if you insult his knowledge. He's pretty cool, but can prolong his lectures thus making the class pretty boring. What's good: class discussions can get pretty interesting.

Nice guy, but super boring class 'cuz of non stop lecturing EVERY class. Marking scheme is terrible - students mostly grade their peers. Plays favorites, can be afraid to speak up to rude students, not to mention he doesn't mind young ladies who flaunt themselves at him before/during/after class. Doesn't give clear instructions of what he wants in presentations, then non-constructively critisizes for not having done well enough. Nice guy, but that doesn't cut being a good enough teacher.
