You are the Movie Critic

Imagine you are a movie critic writing for your own popular movie blog.

 

Write a 1,100 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:

 

o    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.

o    Do you feel the editing was appropriate? Why?

o    Was the sound use effective or ineffective? Why?

o    What feelings, if any, did the score elicit?

o    Describe the film’s cinematography and how it did or did not support the mood and tone of the movie

o    How was the social context in which the film was made present in the film?

o    What was the meaning of the film?

o    What personal influences or biases do you have that affected your opinion?

o    Was this film enjoyable? Why or why not?

o    Would you recommend the movie, and how do you rate it on your scale?

 

Format your critique consistent with APA guidelines.
