Imagine you are a movie critic writing for
your own popular movie blog.
Write a 1,050- to 1,200-word
review of one movie of your own selection in which you analyze the movie in
terms of its genre and the elements of film. As a part of your role as a movie
critic create your own scale to rate the movie. For example, a scale of 1
through 5 stars is typical of many movie critic writers.
Address and answer the following
in your movie review:
Identify the film’s genre and whether or not it was
typical or atypical for its genre. Include a discussion of the film’s story in
your discussion of the film’s genre.
Do you feel the editing was appropriate? Why?
Was the sound use effective or ineffective? Why?
What feelings, if any, did the score elicit?
Describe the film’s cinematography and how it did
or did not support the mood and tone of the movie
How was the social context in which the film was
made present in the film?
What was the meaning of the film?
What personal influences or biases do you have that
affected your opinion?
Was this film enjoyable? Why or why not?
Would you recommend the movie, and how do you rate
it on your scale?
Create a 5 to 7-slide multimedia (Prezi, Microsoft®
podcast etc.) to accompany your paper which will be an
oral 7 minute presentation in class.
