Transcript of A Movie Review

A Movie Review
In your case...
Your movie review compares the film to the novel.
You will have to express your feelings on the novel as well as the film.

However, the main structure is that of a movie review.
So how do you write one?
1. Title (more about that later)
2. Opening hook
3. Body
4. Conclusion

What is a Movie Review?
A simple matter of presenting your opinion on the movie.
Basically an editorial piece on a particular movie that you have seen and have an opinion about
In between your opinion, you present the reader with some facts and such.
The Title
Needs to be catchy

Can relate to your review

Gives us insight to what your review will be about.

Names of actors
The director
Producers or producing companies
Memorable quotes
Release date
Can use personal pronouns (I, me, you)

Informal, yet sophisticated vocabulary used

Normally, there are no spoilers

Remember: it is your opinion on the book, but you must justify your viewpoint(s)
Some tips
Here you can tease the reader with a quote, a question, a bit of tantalizing summary, etc., without actually mentioning the movie.
You just need to get the attention of the reader.

Work in the facts as you give your opinion on the movie. Weave in a little bit of summary, but keep it short and broken up.
Remember, the reader wants your opinion.
You can recommend it - or not - to anyone, everyone, only so-and-so, etc.

Give it a rating (2 stars out of 5)

Remember! Your final opinion on the film relates back to its novel
"Bilbo Begins His Ring Cycle" (
The Hobbit
'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' a sequel with spark
"It's a steal" (
The Book Thief
And a Child Shall Lead Them Into Space Battle (Ender's Game)
You are writing a movie review, not a research paper
Have a clear method of organization
Rely on
reasoned judgments
rather than personal opinion
Don't summarize: ANALYZE
A movie review needs a clear, logical structure that the reader can follow.

Your reader should be able to predict what topic you will discuss next from your thesis and topic sentences
Some write reviews based on their personal feelings toward a book/movie: “boring” or “exciting,” “bad” or “good.”
What is it that makes the movie “bad” or “good”?
What specific evidence can you provide to illustrate the movie’s strengths and weaknesses?
