I think I may have to forgo evaluating this one, instead maybe we’ll just devote a class to discussing what it takes to write a good film review.Or...
Or maybe...hmm, you know, I have a colleague who writes film reviews for the local paper,
maybe I could ask her to come to class and describe what she does and then have everyone rewrite their reviews.
So, she would talk about what a film review should be like, so we’d know what to do.
Well, more than that. A professional film reviewer gets to see movies sometimes before they are even released.
They get advance copies---usually a video or DVD---to watch at home or they go to a movie as soon as it opens in the theaters.
Um...seeing it on the big screen in a theater, doesn’t that affect the experience?
Of course! Having other people there can...can affect the review, too.
So, for the next assignment, I might ask everyone to review one of the films the film club shows every weekend at the theater on campus.
There is no admission charge, they are free to students and the movies are shown on Friday and Saturday nights, plus Sunday afternoon.
So, everyone should be able to see one. Yeah, that should work.
But for this time, will we have to rewrite our reviews?
Well, let’s take it one thing at a time, let me talk to my colleague.
