Criteria of Review

I will not be using any numerical or starring system with my reviews. I believe that film is an art form and cannot be valued by such simplistic measures.

Plot: Google defines a plot as "the main events of a play, novel, movie, or similar work, devised and presented by the writer as an interrelated sequence." For my purposes I will judge the plot based on the storyline, how complex it is in conjunction with if its easy to follow (not all over the place and nonsensical), and how well it is carried out.

Cinematography: is the art of making motion pictures. For this category I will judge how the images on screen are presented, if image quality is sharp, what angles are used, and overall feel.

Themes: is defined as, "
the subject of a talk, a piece of writing, a person's thoughts, or an exhibition; a topic." For this category I will talk about what kind of themes the films presented, and how well they were executed.

Cast and Performance: "the actors taking part in a play, movie, or other production." In this category I will debate whether there was a good call in who played the part, and how well they played their part.


Soundtrack: is a recording of the musical accompaniment to a movie. Here I will judge how well a particular score goes with the scene/movie.

Overall Summation: This is a more subjective area. Here I will conclude my review with the overall feel of the film and to surmise the topics discussed previously.
