Film Response 

The introductory paragraph briefly introduces your topic. List the issue or issues with which you will treat your particular film.

The body addresses how the characters, plot, themes, score, filmography, staging, interact with your issues and topic. Weave opinions of others into your paper as support and counter argument vehicles. Include critical reviews or direction, acting, et al.

Conclude by summarizing your treatment of the film and a score.

1 Star: Will adamantly discourage others from watching the film

2 Stars: Will never see the film again, although others may appreciate it.

3 Stars: It was a good effort, but not a work of art.

4 Stars: A work of art; all of the elements of good filmography were present.

5 Stars: A masterwork; every element of the film could be treated. The script is impeccable and worth studying in the drama sector of literature. Acting is flawless and believable.

This film response template was written with heavy aid from a guideline posted by a Regis University professor.
