Was just reading the significant purchase thread and someone mentioned watching Gattaca in high school. I also watched Gattaca in a Biology lesson. I have a feeling that a significant number of young people today have seen Gattaca during full time education. Vote above.

Nope. Outside of school for my own enjoyment.

I watched it in my pop. lit class in high school. I think I was 17, but I may have been 16.

Nope. But we did watch an episode of Gossip Girl in my Cinema Studies class. I believe I have just one-upped you in awesome.

Nope, watched it at home.

Fantastic film.

Yep. Got to watch it in my Psych class because my teacher loved the movie and we had nothing to do at the end of the year after APs. One of my favorite movies.

Saw it outside of school

 

Seems really silly to be watching pop sci-fi in school :/

In high school my American Literature teacher played "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" episodes. We also read Hemingway.

Never watched it in school.  Saw it when it first came out on video.

I watched it in Modern British Literature. The teacher held degrees in both Philosophy and English so we spent quite some time analyzing the ethical and philosophical aspects of the film. I had already seen it several time previous to the class- Gattaca is one of my favorite movies!

 

Edit: I can't remember his justification for showing this movie in a British Lit. class other than that he thought it was awesome. In fact, most of that class was mostly on the meaning of life etc. and various philosophical things unrelated to the official topic of the class.

I left out an option on the poll:

 

No. I'm too old so I couldn't watch it at school!

Watched back in high school, and in more than once class.

Yes, watched it in English class, in a sort of double-feature with Antz.

 

"Compare and contrast the...in Gattaca and in Antz"

 

I remember being shocked by how utterly cool this movie was, and that we were watching it in English class! It's a great movie, full of awesome imagery as well as being both inspirational and philosophical.

 

Re: ATHF in American Lit, my ex-pat Scottish physics teacher in high school made us watch The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain, for what reason I don't know, but it was brilliant none the less! This was in addition to episodes of Are You Being Served and Keeping Up Appearances.

 

High school was quite awesome, but it all balanced out when I landed up in university ;)
