    Seems pretty simple to me. Watch a movie, and write about what you thought of it.

    Hi Jyoti,

    Thanks for your question. Personally I've seen all the films from nearly all the Top 100 Films of all time lists, including Afi's Top 100 Hollywood films (and the top 400 they came from) and the Top 100 British Films, The Guardian Top 100 all time, Imdb Top 100 and all the other Afi lists (Best Comedies, Action, Most inspirational, Best musicals etc...) and like to think I've become a pretty good judge of a great film.

    So basically I'm going to try and review all the films I believe will or think should become Critically acclaimed and hopefully make the next list of this Century's greatest films.

    The criteria being an awesome storyline, great acting, beautiful cinematography, historical fact or inspiring true story and overall entertainment value and long-term appeal.

    Oh, and then I hope to do the same with great Hard Rock and Heavy Metal albums!

    Hope this helps. Thanks mate.

    Watch a movie. Then when writing talk about the movie itself. Talk about the main characters and the plot so the reader knows whats going on. Then state your opinions about it. It won't be short LOL smile
    Good luck

    First you need to see the movie. After you see it you would just write about the main gist of the movie, try not to spoil to much of it, but make sure people know your  opinion on it.

    What I like to do when reviewing a movie or TV show is just watch the movie/series and write down a few moments I might like to address because they were funny or in any other way special.
    After watching I'll start with the synopsis and describe in one or maybe two paragraphs what it was about. Then I'll formulate my opinion and look in my notes for moments that will help explain that opinion.
