Assignment #26 Critical Film Review

This blog assignment is not to write a summary of the film that  you choose.  This blog assignment is to write about your specific opinions of the film that you choose.

You are the one and only expert of your opinions.  Write about your specific opinions about the specific elements from the film that you choose that stood out to you.  You can write about specific characters, actors, overall character development, dialogue, cinematography, story, plot, etc.

Include a picture relating to the movie you choose (movie poster, etc.) to begin your review.

 This critical review will be written in paragraphs and be at least 200 words.  
When referencing character’s or actor’s names make sure you spell them correctly with capital letters beginning each name.

Paragraph 1
1)  Begin your critical review with a general synopsis of the story (short summary- 2 sentences maximum) followed by one sentence that tells your overall opinion of the film.  Do not include spoilers anywhere in your review. 

Paragraphs 2,3,4
2-4)  Go in to detail about your opinions and the film elements that support your opinions.  Write about each element in its own paragraph. Include examples from the film to support your opinions. For example, if you liked/disliked a character from your film, you could write a paragraph about what you liked/didn't like about that character citing examples from the film. (3 paragraphs minimum).  There are many specific elements that you could focus on in your paragraphs 

Paragraph 5
5)  Conclude your review with a final paragraph summarizing your opinion and giving a final recommendation (thumbs up, thumbs down, 3 out of 4 stars, C+, etc.).  You choose one way to grade the film. 

This outline will give you a 5 paragraph critical review.  You can write more than 5 paragraphs if you so desire.
