You must choose a movie, book, TV show, radio show, popular Internet site, or other contemporary media text to review for this assignment. Write your review as if it were to be appear in some popular, journalistic media source (e.g., the entertainment section of a daily newspaper, Variety magazine, TV Guide, a media column in a newspaper, magazine, or blog). Specify your publication at the top of your review along with your byline (i.e., your name). Your review should be between three and four pages, typed and double-spaced. Your review must apply principles covered in Orlik’s chapter on critical functions. Keep in mind that you are writing your review for your publication’s audience, so do not actually refer directly to the formal functions of criticism. It would be a good idea to actually read the publication you intend to write for and take some pointers from published reviews. You will be graded according to the depth of your ideas (i.e., insight) and the overall quality of your presentation (i.e., the validity of your arguments and supporting evidence, the clarity of your writing, and your attention to proper grammar and style). That is the paper’s prompt. Basically write a paper that goes into depth regarding a scene in any movie, movie in whole, book, or other media piece (artistic style choices, cultural influences, etc.) at 1000 words.
