(Note: Read Chapter 8 of the Johnston text to gain a better understanding)


Look for specific things as you watch the movie. Ask questions about it. For example, do you feel that the story was well-told and well-balanced? Why or why not? Are the characters strong? Does each scene fit the purpose of moving the story forward towards its conclusion, or were some scenes useless? Did you personally like the movie? Why or why not? You must be specific in this. If there are certain things that you didn’t like, explain what they were and why you didn’t like them or vice versa.


These are the types of things you will need to address in both of your reviews.


Your reviews must be structured like this:



: Offer a brief plot summary and describe the main characters. This section must not be more than 1 page.


: Move into your critique of the movie. Content is key on these assignments. The instructor needs to know that you truly engaged with the movie. Your analysis must be based upon Johnston’s logic in Chapter 8 of

Reel Spirituality

. This section must be 1–2 pages.


: Tell your audience your opinion of the movie and defend your opinion with genuine arguments.
