Mad Hot Ballroom

What does the word "Teamwork" mean to you?
I think teamwork means working together and in a positive way and not complaining about it.

How do you see these students trying to work together?
I see them dancing together and not horse playing and being professional about it.

How important was teamwork for these students?
Very since they are dancing like grown ups and some of them don't speak English.

What do you think is the main message that these students should take away from this experience?
How important team work is and how to work with other people

How will you work together with your teammates in Globaloria?
We will think of ideas for our game together and think of ways of how to improve them to the other team members liking

Mathman 2 and Math Olympics

Mathman 2 is about a guy that saves the planet with math powers but he has to solve them before he beats the monsters up. In Math Olympics you are playing as a charecter that has to do obstacles but if you want your charecter to advance in the game you have to do math problems.

Super Chick Sisters/J.Lo Bully On The Block

In Super Chick Sisters you take place as a chick that has a Mario hat and a mustache. There are two versions to the Super Chick Sisters, on version is where you are a bigger chick than the one with the red hat. I don't know if they are exactly "different" but you are a different character. The point they are trying to get from them to the player is that McDonald's and K.F.C are killing chickens brutally and not killing them in a peaceful way. In J.Lo Bully On The Block you are a civil rights activist and you are freeing animals and avoiding J.Lo and if you tell her workers how bad killing animals is then you will get more points.

The Wizard

At the beginning of the movie, Jimmy is walking down the highway. Where is he going?
He is going to California

What is the problem that the little boy, Jimmy, has?
He is Tramatized by his dead twin sister.

Jimmy likes to stack and build things. How does this relate to video games?
Because in video games you can add endless blocks.

Playing video games seems to help Jimmy feel better. Why do you think this is?
Because you only have to concentrate on the game and it would keep yourself occupied.

What makes him such an awesome video game player?
I guess since he can concentrate so well.

What kinds of games do you see being played? Have you ever played any games like this before? Yes I have. I Played a game called street fighter and it looks allot like double dragon. I've also played Ninja Gaiden its really complicated.

How many different game systems do you see in the film?
I only saw 2,the Arcade game and the NES.

What did you think about the Power Glove?
I think It started the Wii since you can control it with your hand by moving it.
