So I finally found In the Heights on YouTube, and watched it at the firt opportunity. If you've watched the movie, what can I add (also can we talk and obsess over it?) and if you haven't yet, based off my review, would you watch it?
I was impressed with how your opening line referenced your personal experience watching In The Heights. This was engaging for me as a reader and drew me in to the rest of your piece.
I feel that the beginning of your review could be strengthened by evaluative language that ensures your opinion of the film is clear from the start. I would also be interested to know if there was a specific group in society you would recommend to watch In The Heights. This information might fit nicely within your piece's introduction.
I did notice a small spelling error in the title of your piece. By adjusting the spelling of 'Heights', your piece could seem slightly more professional than it already is.
I found your analysis of the messages within the film insightful and supportive of your claims about In The Heights' value. Your identification of the film's family-related morals was thoughtful and enhanced the reader's understanding of its plot line. Through this analysis, you have subtly revealed how In The Heights is relevant to our society today.
You have provided wonderful details about the themes of In The Heights. As you continue to refine your review, I would love to see you flesh out your outline of the film's plot. I felt that this section of your review could be more detailed and ordered in a more chronological way.
Likewise, I am interested to hear your thoughts about the musical numbers within the film. Which songs were highlights, and did you find that the transition of In The Heights from stage to screen altered the musical numbers of the film in any way?
I have really enjoyed looking at your work. I can see you are a insightful reviewer that has the potential to inspire budding film critics like me. I can't wait to see what you do with this piece!
Hi SunV! This was a truly fantastic review, so I had to be quite nitpicky when suggesting improvements. My comments are just my opinions, so feel free to ignore them when you feel it necessary. I hope I've been helpful.
Have a wonderful day!
