For Monsters in Film class, a final analysis paper on independent viewing. I chose Resident Evil: Degeneration since I've been on an RE kick since last semester and it's a pretty straight-forward film to work on through the various assignments.
masculinity, femininity... desexualization? )

Final papers... eww, hate them. My most important one isn't terribly complicated, but since I keep putting it off, I feel like I need to get the ones I don't care about out of the way. Luckily the one that's already got a reasonable start as a rough draft is the first one due. So I'm gonna get that sucker done tonight/now. It's on Resident Evil: Degeneration (cgi film) for my Monsters in Film class. The theme I'm writing on is gender presentation (indeed, my only non- sexuality/gender class and my final paper goes into the territory).

In any case, I'm still debating what I want to say about the women - Claire Redfield and Angela Miller. There's the possibility to argue that Claire is actually desexualized. That bothers me for some reason and I'm not sure whether I want to go there or not. What's so far written into the paper is about the four male characters of the film - Downing, Davis, Curtis, and Leon. While I rope Downing and Davis into a similar loop and Curtis not far beyond, the four men are actually fairly distinct in their own little circles. I'm not concerned about fleshing them out much more, though. Like I said, I really don't care about these last papers. I've got a solid A in the class and as long as I don't get below a B on the paper I'm fine. Even if I failed it (which would be impossible at this point) the end result won't effect my GPA. Um, yeah. Graduating and having a GPA that gets me cum laude is all I care about in my general classes...

It's practicum that has me a little worried. But that's a longer story and probably not so important for y'all. =p I'll get to work now. Ta!
