I would prefer (if I were your teacher) to know what you don't know, rather than what you have already learned. Mastery is another matter however. The best written test on the planet cannot demonstrate whether a person has mastered anything. When I was in college there were several students (one in particular) who would ace the tests but failed to gain the true knowledge necessary to master the subject matter.

I do not mean to demean your high score, that is something to be proud of to be sure.
Not on the same scale but I have noticed my 11 year old has to work for her As this year. I did mention it as a compliment to the teacher at a parent teacher conference. An A should not be easy.

Trust me, none of them have been easy.

So... once you get your stomach past the sick crap, Django is a pretty decent movie.

I suggest watching it during the day, well before you go to bed.

I'm not a weak stomach individual, but having seen some of the things I've seen, and then Tarantino's flair for the gore (and realism, I present the exhibit of mandango and the dogs), it's just a lot to handle.

Movies were so much easier to handle when you could just say, "oh that's just Hollywood"

I avoid Quentin Tarantino movies.

Oh, but the good ones are SO good. Reservoir Dogs? The best. Pulp Fiction is definitely worth seeing but a little odd in spots. I guess he deserves some credit for Hero and Killing Zoe. Must sees, especially the first, as it is so US Poular culture.

Cinder I really did not mean to imply your tests were easy, If it came off that way I apologize.

I was saying that my daughters previous teachers were not challenging her, and the current one is making her earn her grades. I think this is the way it should be. In grade school my grades were not as good as my daughters are, but the nuns I had for teachers made sure I earned the grades I got, and on occasion the bad grades I deserved.

Our tests aren't easy, I work hard to get good grades, but 60% of our grade comes from shop work anyway which is easy for me.
