I have edited and resubmitted this Review three times and it has still been denied Featured status. What's wrong with this thing???
https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Guar … vie-Review
The hub lacks a proper introduction - you launch straight into a personal opinion instead of introducing your readers to the movie, the premise of the film, a brief synopsis of the first one and a non-spoiler précis of the one you're reviewing. The first paragraph is so negative it makes me go, "Okay," and want to back out of the hub. Somehow, you have to make readers want to keep reading.
I realise you are not impressed with the movie, but the overall tone of the review leaves me 'blah'. Is there no way you could make it humorous? Make it sparkle? I have read many reviews about awful movies that make me laugh so much that I want to read to the end.

Edit: You mention several characters but not what part they play in the story. You are assuming that readers know who/what you are writing about. You really need an overview of the plot without giving away too much.
Hope that helps.
Hi, how about introducing a few more images, maybe of characters involved and place them next to the paragraphs describing them? Secondly, you could make creative use of capsules to highlight some of the interesting facts/did-you-know about the movie that would draw attention. Hope it helps, thanks, regards...
The only problems that I saw was in the first half of your article, there are missing commas and commas used where they shouldn't be. Also, like Jason said, add some more photos.
Thank you all for your helpful tips! My article is now featured and has even been moved to ReelRundown! Thank you all for your help!

Iv'd recently had two articles denied from Owlcation. The first is a book review (I read on another forum that that's where book reviews should be submitted, although it doesn't make sense to me). The second is a photo play-by-play of an nearly extinct bug working in my yard, The American Burying...

Often, I would like to know who is giving me feedback. Personally, I always try to give people some sort of feedback or comment. But, I feel that some people may just be "Generous". I would like to see where the source of the feedback is being left from. It doesn't have to be as specific...
