Comment:
I am not a fan of his teaching techniques but he is understanding with late penalties and he gives you grace days on assignments. I had Galiet for my TA and she was hands down the best TA I have had. She really cares for her students and will sit down with you to explain. I recommend having her if you take the course.

Professor McCullogh is the worst online prof I've had the displeasure of taking a course with. This man is probably making over 100k and he does not even take the time to put together a slideshow or make himself available for synchronous lectures. If you take one of his online courses just know you'll be paying to teach yourself for 4 months.

I love the hoodie-clad, carefree John McCullough, but I will warn you that his lectures are a bit dry.

Comment:
laid back. Tends to make insults which is odd. Class is quite easy. For that reason you may want to take a class with him. Im a bit conflicted. He does not really care which is a good and a bad thing. Does not add much substance to the content he covers. If you're looking for a good grade that involves little effort then take a class with him.

Comment:
Everything that comes out of his mouth is dragging out the readings which are outdated and irrelevant. I don't understand how York has such a bad professor. If you confront him about a grade, he will lie and not review it and insult your intelligence. If I wasn't close to graduation I would file a complaint against the school because of him.

Terrible professor, one of the worst I've ever had. Doesn't teach anything just reads from the readings. Stay away from this professor

Worst professor I've had through my academic career. Shows zero knowledge for material outside of the readings. Terrible speaker, very dull.

Will call out students, calling them students and degrading them and the rejoice when they leave the class. Likes to remind film studies students that they will never be as good as film production students since they didnt get into the program

Comment:
4 hours. Movie followed by lecture. Really bad speaker, stutters a lot with so many "ums" and "ers". I absolutely can't focus on what he's talking about. No content in what he says. Stopped reading the textbook because he says exactly what it says. Offers very little real insight. Rambles forever, skipped more lectures than I've attended, got an A.

Drags on in lecture, doesn't really deliver the content in an interesting way. The class is textbook heavy, you have to do the readings to do well. With that said, it's not a difficult course if you do the readings.

The material he teaches is pretty interesting. The only problem is that it a four hour afternoon lecture so it can be hard to stay up for it. The tests really aren't that hard, you just have to at least go to class and do yourself the favour (of at least) occasionally opening the textbook. The work load isn't that heavy either, but pace yourself.

Comment:
His teaching is quite advanced. Very articulate when he speaks about film. He's easy to approach, and will help you if you need help. I regret taking the class though, because I was struggling. His Take-Home exams are really hard to do. Or at least my TA was a hardmarker. And the movies he shows in the beginning of the year are really boring.

Comment:
It seems as if his teaching techniques are a little advanced for introductory course that makes him dumb down the context and makes you feel like you`re learning nothing. He`s a cool guy, easy going and all but his lectures arent pleasant at all.

Comment:
Based on the other ratings, maybe he had an off year teaching this year? Incomprehensible. I've heard countless students truly dislike his courses. Will mark you wrong on tests if you get the concepts but don't use the words used in the texts.
