Final Film Critique

 Final Film Critique
Throughout this course, you have been compiling a blog and writing essays that analyze various elements of film such as theme, cinematic techniques, and genre. It is now time to combine those elements into a comprehensive analysis of one movie.
You will be completing this assignment in two stages. For the first stage (1500 to 1800 words), you will analyze an entire movie. In the second stage (300 to 600 words), you will reflect on how you analyzed the movie as well as how your ability to analyze film in general has evolved.
You are encouraged to incorporate writing from your Week Two and Week Three assignments if (a) you have reflected on the instructor’s feedback, (b) you have revised the relevant parts of the essays accordingly, and (c) the essays discuss the same film that you discuss here.
Stage 1: Analysis
The analysis portion of your paper should be 1500 to 1800 words in length. You should analyze the film through the lens of one of the broad theories you have learned about in class (auteur theory, genre theory, formalist theory). Your analysis must address four main areas (contextual information, story/plot, aesthetic choices, and social/personal impact) and how these areas work together to develop the theme of the movie. As you construct your analysis, assume that your reader is not familiar with this film. Use your analysis to explain to your reader why they should watch this film.
In addition to the film you are analyzing, you must use three scholarly sources to support your arguments. Refer to the ENG225 Research Guide in the Library for guidance and to locate your sources. Cite your sources (including the feature-length film) within the text of your paper and on the reference page. Cite your sources according to APA style as outlined in the Writing Center.

This started from what I like. When I was young I enjoyed getting new experience. I was excited, when I went something new place where I ever haven’t been before or when I saw something what I don’t know.
Since childhood, I enjoyed watching animation. I often watched story about unexpected journey, adventure, and wonderland. Something like Paul’s Miraculous Adventures, Wonderful adventure of Nils, The New Adventures Of Pippi Longstocking.
Interestingly, in these stories which I liked have something in common. Characters are so young and pure. They are look so weak and sometimes they got into difficulties but after all they got overcome every hardships. In this part I was recall a book, which is Mom. Summarize story She has unique ability which can sincerely heard others speech. One day, the gray gentlemans comes to their village and they deceive the villager and gentlemans take their times. But Momo is unique, than gentlemans can’t take Momo’s times. That time, Momo meet the person who is the time manager. Than, Momo get rid of gentlemans by help of the manager.
In this story I saw the modern men who live tight and dryness. In the school students are wear same clothes and study same things. Furthermore, they have a same dream that called University.

Assignment:
There’s really only one question here – and that is what can be done to deal with the myriad of problems faced by young Latino men who aspire to play professionally in the United States and who view baseball as “the only way out.” You may be tempted to just use the program I developed for the Mets as your answer – but avoid putting too much emphasis on it. For one thing, it’s a program just one team thus far has been willing to support. For another, the problem peloteros(player) face is far greater than problems with the English language. So, watch the films again, do your own research, and let’s see what kinds of solutions you can offer.
