A Movie Review
Transcript of 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
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.
Needs to be catchy
Can relate to your review
Gives us insight to what your review will be about.
MOVIE REVIEW INCLUDES...
Names of actors
Producers or producing companies
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)
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" (
'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
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?
