- If you are drawn to sports films – tell me why. Is there a particular sports film that you can use as an example?
- When viewing small screen adaptations or sequels or remakes – what is the compelling factor that would cause you to watch one of those films? Why? Offer an example of one of these films.
Part 2: As we wrap this semester I’d like you to reflect and think back on what we’ve covered together. Address one of the following questions/writing prompts and post this as your final personal movie blog (on your own site) with the titles listed below. Make sure you add three photos and three links to your post to be consistent with your other original blog posts.
- Blog post title: “Exploring Film Criticism with a New Perspective” – questions to consider when writing this: How has your perspective on film criticism changed? Do you approach film viewing differently? Are there elements of filmmaking that you are more in tune with now? Do you appreciate things about film now that you didn’t before? Was there one thing or several things that triggered new thoughts for you?
- Blog post title: “Film Criticism = Past-Perfect” – Have you found that the issues and topics we covered served as a reminder or reinforcement of what you already knew? If so, touch on a few of those things.
3. Blog post title: “Film Criticism = Critical Thinking in Action” – How can using the elements of film criticism we explored together help you (and others) examine other arts (music, TV, video games, literature, etc.)?
