I’m studying for my Film class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Everything you need for the Film Worksheet is in the worksheet, itself, but here is additional information:
You will have more to keep track of — sound effects, moving images, and a plot with characters. I recommend looking over the film worksheet before you go to the theater and make notes afterward. You will be surprised at how much you remember.
SELECTING A FILM
When you select a film to see, you will find that the Internet has some helpful websites that list all films in American theaters, along with their reviews and cast credits. This semester I’m providing you with links to a few of these websites, instead of a list of specific titles. So, your job is to carefully pick a film to see.
Look for films that you think have enough of a plot and technical aspects to write about in a balanced discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the film. Chances are the films that interest you, because you know something about the topic, will be films you can write about intelligently.
Here are a few of the websites the websites:
Internet Movie Database (IMDb)
IMDb is one of the most complete listings of thousands of movies, now part of Amazon.
Fandango is a ticket sales service that also sorts theater listings by region and provides trailers and reviews of films in theaters.
Moviefone is a service owned by AOL and lists theater times and film reviews.
If you search Google with the query, “movies in theaters now,” you will get an easy-to-browse list.
Wexner Center for the Arts Film/Video Theater
An alternative to Hollywood movies are the independent films, which you are not likely to see in commercial theaters, is Columbus’s Wexner Center for the Arts Film/Video Theater.
