(Ch. 5) Creating a Title for your Review

  • When you create a title/headline for your film review or evaluation, you should become a critical thinker and get creative with your words.
  • If your review was a news story -what would the headline look like?
  • Think about a click-bait phrase that you may see online.
  • Find a way to draw your reader in  & tease your thoughts on the review.
  • Play around with the title of the film.
  • Offer a snapshot of your thoughts; tell readers what you are going to tell them .. before you tell them.
