I want to hear about the last movie you watched. In four or five paragraphs (if necessary, combine), answer the following questions:
- How was the writing? Were the characters well developed? Did the dialog come off as natural?
- What do you think the purpose of the movie was? Did it achieve that purpose?
- What emotions did it bring out in you?
- What was your overall impression? Did you enjoy it?
I want this to be a "gentle persuasion" thing, where you share your genuine feelings about the movie you most recently watched (even if it was a very long time ago :-)), helping us to decide whether to go watch the movie or not. You can see from what I've written about the Lovely Bones, that I didn't go too deep into the answers to the above questions, nor am I telling everyone to go watch it. :-) Don't say things like "never, ever watch this show," or "if you haven't seen it already, you're missing out!"
You have until Thursday, December 1, 2011 at midnight to write and post, and it can be in any format.
I will comment on and read your responses a week from today.
* Have your title say FWE or Friday Writing Essential, and have the initials "LMIW" (Last Movie I Watched) in it.
* Make sure to post to the Writing Essential Group.
* Put FWE or Friday Writing Essentials and the initials "LMIW" in your tags. (I won't find your post without these tags.)
I love movies, so I can't wait to read your posts! :-)
The Green Hornet
I had heard this movie was bad so I wasn’t expecting much from it but I loved the series as a kid and wanted to see what they had done with it. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The storyline was followed, not precisely but pretty closely. The connection between Brett Reed and Kato was excellent. And apart from the grossly exaggerated humor scenes, most of the humor was subtle and to my liking.
Of course there were some twenty first century additions to the car and weapons, but they fit in perfectly. When the Green Hornet decides to break his father’s first rule of journalism things get just a little hincky, but he learns fast and everything works out for the best.
This was an entertaining and funny movie which I would recommend to anyone who understands subtle humor and remembers the series from way back when!
