Rubric

What is a Movie Critique?
Movie critiques can be easily confused with movie reviews. Movie reviews give a personal impression while a critique names specific things that make a movie work, or not work, so that the creator can improve.

Part 1: Information
Write a short paragraph including the name of the movie, the director, producer, the top stars, and the year of release. Also include when and where you watched the film and any special comments on its release (was it an abridged or colorized version, was it in more than one part, was it part of a series, was it based on a novel, etc.)

Part 2: The Plot
In no more than one good paragraph retell the plot. Of course, you will not be able to give all the details. Just condense the main story line into 5 – 8 sentences.

Part 3: The Setting
When and where was the movie set? If several locations were used, were they all depicted realistically?

Part 4: Evaluation
Give an evaluation of the film. Don’t just say, “I liked it because it was a good movie,” or “I hated it because it was boring.” Like a real film critic, point out the strengths and weaknesses of the movie. Was it based of fact or fiction? Which actors did a good job and which were inadequate? Were there places where the plot was vague, too slow, or too fast? Were there stereotyped roles or rounded characterizations? Did the story build to a logical climax and resolve itself satisfactorily? Did it hold the viewer’s interest uniformly? Why? If the film was done many years ago, would it be done differently now? Why? What would have made the film better? Would you recommend the film to another student? Why?

Critiques for dance movies should be 500 – 600 words double spaced in 12 font.
