Film Review for Momento

As a film critic of an online entertainment magazine, write a film review of Memento. You are encouraged to embrace the formatting conventions of the medium, including pictures, star ratings, bylines, etc. Along with the readings and discussions for this unit, also consider using IMDB.com (Memento) and rottentomatoes.com (Memento) as resources for this assignment. Essays must include a date, byline, and a visual rating (e.g. star rating or letter grade) ● Essays must reach 600 word count minimum and must not exceed 700 word count maximum, both in their final draft, and as a peer review ready rough draft. Film Review Grading Rubrichttp://reflectionstext.blogspot.com/2015/03/film-review-grading-rubric.html Notes: Expectations of a Film Review I. Introduction Grab the reader’s attention State your position on the film. II. Synopsis Provide the basic elements of the film’s premise Plot Characters Themes. The synopsis should be relatively short, and should not exceed the length of the analysis. III. Critique Support your position on the film by analyzing key elements and connecting the analysis to your position on the film. Characters Plot Themes Screenplay Structure Acting Cinematography Music There are many elements to examine, but you should focus on only one or two that support your position most effectively. There may be space to also briefly interweave less important criticism throughout the review, whether in the introduction, synopsis, or analysis e.g. if you’re introducing the protagonist, you may be able to include a snippet on the acting: Truman Burbank, who comes to life in an Oscar-worthy performance by Jim Carrey, has yet to realize that the world around him is all smoke and mirrors. IV. Conclusion Reassert your position on the film. End with a strong last impression. V. Points of Consideration Remember: you are not writing a film summary; you are not writing a film analysis; you are writing a film review. You can have summary and analysis in your review, but always keep your primary goal in mind: to convince a prospective viewer to either watch or stay away from the film. Comparisons to other films are often welcome, illustrating the knowledge base of the critic and also providing the reader with a reference point. Referencing the reader directly through second person pronouns is perfectly appropriate in a review. If you’re looking for Jim Carrey's slapstick comedic outings, like what you might find in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective or Dumb and Dumber, then The Truman Show may leave you with a straight face. Using first person pronouns to describe your own viewing experience can effectively provide the reader with an example of how he/she may view the film. Using adjectives and adverbs as positive or negative descriptors is a primary tool for a film review to push its agenda forward: The Truman Show is a monumental film, one that brilliantly captures the shared consciousness of the Digital Age. Movie titles should be in italics. Events in a film, and the process in which they are created, like all forms of art, are referred to in the present tense: The befuddled hero of The Truman Show is on a voyage of self-discovery." Director Peter Weir brilliantly brings the quaint town of Sea Haven to artificial life. Avoid referencing other critics. For a magazine critic, this amounts to an advertisement for your competition. Avoid restating your visual rating in the review itself. The visual rating is clear and to state it in the text would be redundant. Do not include any spoilers in your review. Some reviews offer a clear spoiler alert before revealing an important element of a film that the audience is not supposed to know going in, but for the sake of this assignment, no spoilers and no spoiler alerts.
