Writing a Movie Review


A movie is a type of visual art that tells stories with images and sounds. Movies can make people laugh, cry and feel afraid. Movies can also teach people things. Some movies are about real life events, like war or murder. Other movies are fiction, like science fiction or romance. Some movies are both, like Back to the Future or Jaws.

It is important to remember that a movie is made up of many different parts, such as the plot (story), the characters, and the setting. When writing a movie review, it is important to analyze each of these elements and how they work together.

When analyzing a film, it is important to take notes while watching it. This will help you remember details later when you are writing your review. For example, you might want to write down if a costume was effective or not, if music enhanced the movie or not, and if the set design added to the story or detracted from it. You should also pay attention to the acting, considering how well the actors delivered their lines and if they were believable as their characters.

A good movie will leave you feeling satisfied at the end. This is often why movies become so popular, and why they continue to be made. A movie will be considered a classic when it is praised by critics and the public alike. For example, the Sidney Lumet film 12 Angry Men is considered one of the greatest movies of all time by the Sight and Sound poll.
