How to Write a Movie Response Essay


For more than a century, people of all ages have enjoyed watching a good movie. However, watching a movie purely for enjoyment and writing a critical response to one are different experiences. Acting, directing, cinematography and other elements all contribute to a movie's success. In writing a movie response, your goal is to explain to readers why a movie is worth seeing by evaluating its strengths and weaknesses in these areas, providing essential background information and giving an overall evaluation. The opening of a film response usually includes the movie's production information, including the title, director, genre and actors.

The Man Who Knew Too Much


I'd rather be with a brave Sackett who fights for justice than a Fisher who throws back the big ones. Cannot push past rocky path to gem phrases. Quoted a few for your enjoyment. In 8 short stories, Horne Fisher knows whodunit among jabber, some beautifully phrased, his "bald brow became abruptly corrugated" p 19. People drop in and out of the scene, chitchat, observe, gossip, more inconsequentials that sequentials, so facts are hard to ferret from impressions and feelings. Title subject Fisher kI'd rather be with a brave Sackett who fights for justice than a Fisher who throws back the big ones.

Foreign Influence (Scot Harvath, #9)


I have a recollection that the book was a slow starter--not that there wasn't action and intrigue from the beginning, but that it did not grab me, and I was forced to push through a couple chapters before I got caught in the flow. Once that happened, though, it drove forward quite powerfully. There was a fair amount of somewhat graphic torture in the book; it is not for the squeamish. There was also one somewhat extended sex scene designed not to be romantic. It is generally a rather violent bookI have a recollection that the book was a slow starter--not that there wasn't action and intrigue from the beginning, but that it did not grab me, and I was forced to push through a couple chapters before I got caught in the flow.

In a Sunburned Country


A substitute for another book: after the first two chapters – a Kindle sample – of The Fatal Shore, I was engrossed and wanted to read more, regardless of the odd reservation. But I'd have had to pay for it, and I'm curtailing my book-buying habits after years of overindulgence. Bill Brysons, as any Brit knows, are freely and easily available anywhere: libraries, other people's bookshelves, park benches, lost property offices in the middle of nowhere… So it was with this I continued reading abou A substitute for another book: after the first two chapters – a Kindle sample – of The Fatal Shore, I was engrossed and wanted to read more, regardless of the odd reservation.

All the Way - Movie Reviews


Michael Hogan Daily Telegraph (UK) Just as Johnson steamrolled opposition en route to a landslide 1964 election victory, so Cranston's charisma blew everyone else clean off screen. The actor also went "all the way" and it was absorbing to watch. All the Way is a firm lesson in the price and struggle of progress in American democracy, and the perhaps impossibility of a "nice guy" president. It's also an illustration of both how much and how little has changed in 50 years. The writing only takes the time to make LBJ into a fully fleshed-out, complex creature, while everyone else is judged simply by Roach and Schenkken's bland conception of moral codes.

Let It Snow


This book, even though it is categorized as one book (singular) it should really be categorized as three books (plural) because although the stories within the book are interrelated, the writing-style and general plot of each story is unique and each could stand on its own. It only seems fitting to write three mini-reviews. Note: the review may get rather long and unwieldy. I apologize in advance.

Go Tell It on the Mountain


When I was vacationing in Chicago recently, I went to a used bookstore and saw some James Baldwin books. I've heard many good things about him, so I decided to get this book. . . an old paperback edition (not the white one pictured above) for $5. The next morning, flipping through my stack of newly purchased books, I noticed to my amazement that this book was signed! And signed "For Jimmy".
