Video/Film Review

The quality of your paper depends on the level of organization you implement. Never underestimate the importance of well-structured outline, regardless of the type of paper you have to write. Outlines help you focus on the subject and contribute to a logical flow.
Here’s how to organize your video/film review:
Introduction (title, release date, background information)
Summary of the video/film
Creative elements (dialogues, characters, use of colors, camera techniques, mood, tone, symbols, or anything that contributes or takes away from the overall video/film)
Opinion (supported with examples and facts from the video/film)
Conclusion (announcing whether the filmmaker was successful in his/her purpose, re-state your evidence, explain how the video/film was helpful for providing a deeper understanding of a course topic)
Video/Film Review Elements
The title of the film/documentary– just because your headline features the name of the video/film it doesn’t mean you should skip mentioning it in the text. Always name the feature you’ve watched in the introductory paragraph. This may seem like a stupid thing to point out, but it’s one of the most common mistakes that students make.
Summary– the whole point of the review is to summarize the video/film for people who haven’t watched it yet. To make this as effective as possible, always assume that your professor hasn’t seen it either (as mentioned above). Why is this important? You won’t leave out some important details thinking he/she watched it already so they won’t bother. As a reviewer, your job is to explain what happened in the video/film and express whether the filmmaker failed or succeeded. Again, saying you liked or disliked it isn’t a viable comment. Your opinion has to be supported by specific reasons and examples from the feature itself
Significance to the class– How does the content of the video/film fit into your course topic?
Creative elements– filmmakers work hard to include creative elements into their motion pictures. How are these elements important to the video/film in general? Colors can be vivid and lift the atmosphere or mood in the movie or they can be dull and make it seem depressing. Moreover, camera movements and angles also add elements to the story. Take notes of symbols in the story, if any.
Checklist / Outline for a Good Video/Film Review
Introduction (title, topic, release date, background information)
Accuracy of depiction
Use of sources in the film
Creative elements that enhance or tarnish the overall story (visual design, performance, set design, symbolism,… )
Your opinion
Mistakes to Avoid
Not focusing on the video/film – strive to avoid writing about unnecessary details or introducing irrelevant information
Inserting yourself – you’re the one who’s writing the review. The paper reflects your understanding and opinion of the video/film you’ve seen and there is no need to write in first person all the time: I noticed this…, I saw that…, I liked this…, I disliked that…,
Giving out your opinion without mentioning any reason why you think that way
Talking about irrelevancies
Writing a review without a structure
Writing generalities such as great acting, cool effects, a good video, it was bad,…
Writing a review without substance or analysis of the video/film*
