Writing Skills: Movie Reviews
This straightforward, easy-to-follow outline provides students with a scaffold from which they can write their own movie reviews. An introduction paragraph, a plot summary and characters paragraph, a critique paragraph, and a conclusion paragraph are outlined and broken down. The framework includes examples of phrasing used to convey opinions, begin plot summaries, and provide recommendations. For their critique, students choose which film aspects to discuss from a list that includes musical score, character development, special effects, realism, cinematography, and more.
