Writing Your Movie Review 4 STEPS
1. Lead • Grab readers attention IMMEDIATELY • Ideas: • Use direct line from the film • Compare this film with another • Or some other exciting attention grabbing idea
example • “the force is with this film” • McLovin’ is McBrilliant • Bigger and badder than its predecessor The Return of The King IS epic.
2. Summary (Synopsis) • Be very careful, as you should not give up the whole story to the audience, especially the end. • You must describe the basic storyline, however avoid mentioning the important scenes and twists that form the crux of the film.
3. Opinion (the review) • Mention areas that were good and those that were bad in the film and the reasons for it. • You don’t need to stick to the main story, instead you can discuss • acting, script • plot, direction, music • technical factors like the special effects, cinematography, costumes, etc.
4. Recommendation • Simply, would you recommend this film to others or not. • You could add a rating here • For example, 8 out of 10 apples, or 5 monkeys out of 12!!
Avatar is Dances With Wolves as rewritten by a Tolkien enthusiast - a New Agey fantasy adventure about a paraplegic 22nd-century Marine (Sam Worthington) who travels to the distant world of Pandora to become an emissary to the indigenous Na’vi and winds up joining them in battle against his conniving human masters. Much of Avatar plays like a nerdy debate about who would win in a fight between Starship Troopers and Orcs, but when it works, it’s thrilling. The action sequences are as intense and inventive as anything Cameron has ever done - which is really saying something, since most of them involve giant blue cat people falling through trees or riding lizard-horses and dragons. That’d all be an awfully hard sell for a lesser filmmaker. (Norm Wilner)
