One Page Movie Review
It is a single-page response that connects the ideas in the movie to your thoughts in a creative way. You will create your One-Pager so your audience will understand the big ideas, themes, or connections within the movie.
What to include:
- Write the title of the movie along with the author’s name somewhere on the page.
- Select three interesting scenes from the movie and describe them.
- Write three personal statements about what you have seen. These are not simple opinions about the material (Example: I really liked this movie because it was funny). These are meaningful statements about what you have read (Example: I could relate to the main character feeling lost in the book, because it reminded me of how I felt when I first got to high school).
- Write three meaningful questions about the movie (NOT YES or NO questions). (Example: What does it mean when Charlie refuses Mr. Church’s ’s food?)
- Answer your three questions with complete sentences. (Example: Charlie refuses Mr. Church’s food because she is uncomfortable with change.)
- Find two songs that represent a theme in the book. List the song title, the singer, and how it connects to the movie.
- Draw or create three images that represent themes, characters, conflict, or setting in the book. It is important the visuals have a strong connection to the movie.
Did I do this right?
(1) Does it have all seven required elements? (2) Is it neat and easy to read/understand? (3) Are the quotes, questions, answers, personal statements, songs, and images all meaningful and representative of the novel? (4) Does it fill the entire page?
