Transcript of How to Write a Movie Review

Finally Evaluate the Movie
Do you recommend it or not? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Who will like it (kids or adults- what age kids?) You must explain WHY you are making your recommendation. Give at least 2 reasons why you liked or didn't like the movie.

Lastly, Give a rating (1-5 stars; thumbs up/thumbs down). What's a review? How to Write a Movie Review Movie reviews are short, information packed critiques designed tp help you decide whether or not you would like to see a particular movie. Structure of a Movie Review Opening: Catch the reader's attention.

-Begin by retelling an incident or moment from the movie which you think captures the spirit of the movie. If you liked it, then you should make people want to see it. If you didn't like it, you should explain a part that shows why you didn't like it.

Alternatively, you could begin the review with an interesting fact about one of the star actors, the making of the movie, or the director Rotton Tomatoe http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hobbit/ Movie Review Example: The Hobbit http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/978071/the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-movie-review Anatomy of the Movie Give the title of the movie, the main actors, the year it was made. Character and Plot Summary What happens in the movie? You shouldn't tell everything that happens, especially the ending.

-Did the plot follow a predictable story line or was it surprising or hard to follow?

-Which character did you like the most or the least?

-What are the character traits of the character? A Key Moment or Idea Tell something important that interested you in the movie. If it is a musical, you should say something about the songs or write more about one character who you found to be intriguing.

Or, you could retell another big moment from the movie and explain why it is important. If it is animated, how good is the animation? What is the main message of the movie?
