Find a review for a film, preferably one that you have seen. According to the distinctions made in Chapter Ten, how is the reviewer approaching the film.

My film that I will use for review will be Batman “The Dark Knight Rises”. As I read the review from the writer Anthony Lane who posted his review in the New Yorker of the film it seems to me that Mr. Lane saw the film in the eyes of Bruce Wayne (Batman) as a boring in his life outside of Batman. The life of Mr. Wayne as being rich all seems to boring being that he has a lot of money but yet depends on other people to do for him. He never eats; drinks, and more or less he said you never see him use the restroom. He is always showing up at parties with one or two girls by his side but that’s it. As for the Batman character, he meets all the viewers’ expectations as a super hero and with all the cool gadgets and vehicles he uses to assist him in fighting crime.

To what degree does the review acknowledge the public perception of the film?

He addressed the public perception at the start of his review when he asks how badly you would want Bruce Wayne or Batman to show up at one of your parties. Again he viewed Bruce Wayne as a no small talk type of person with a playboy type of lifestyle.

What evidence does each review provide to illustrate main points and claims?

That Batman needs all the gizmos he can muster, if he wants to defeat his latest and most potent foe (Lane, July 2012).

Do any words or phrases capture the essence of the reviewer’s attitude toward the film?

Who, then, in “The Dark Knight Rises” does the rising? Not Bruce; the slacker we see wandering through the Wayne mansion at the beginning can hardly get out of his pajamas (Lane, July 2012). This is describing what his view of Bruce Wayne is outside of Batman and that he is a boring playboy with a lot of money.

Additionally, please share with the class exactly which sources you rely on, as a member of the general audience, to evaluate whether or not you will see a movie.

I normally depend on what my wife who is always on the web even when new movies come out to see what the critics are saying about the latest movie(s). The other resource I use is pretty much a good one with a friend of mine he is a good judge when it comes to movies. Nine times out of ten he is pretty much on the spot with what he says and recommends.

The film that I chose was Taken.

In this film an ex spys daughter is abducted while on a trip to Paris that he did not want her to go on. Well he uses his spy skills to track her down and the people who took her. This film is filled with lots of action drama and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Now that there is a part two to this film I plan on watching that as well.
