Do you think that films can be educational?
Yes, some are definitely educational...for instance, the famous movie Titanic has given the idea about the giant ship with what all facilities it had, how it was operated, what was grandness of the ship and the complicated engine of the ship.These were not known to common people before the movie. Since we had a chapter of Titanic in our English subject I developed a keen interest on this vessel and did lot of research to know about it! I was more than happy to see in the movie about my dream vessel. This is just a small example I am quoting, there are many such movies in every field! Thanks dear friend @RodrickH!
In my very first Philosophy class in University We spent the whole class watch Monty Python's Flying Circus. I learned just how brilliant those philosophers are. The film "Supersize Me" was very educating and so was "The March of the Emperor Penguins".
