Remember, people. The "why" is the most important part. Your opinion will mean nothing unless you explain yourself.
It looks like I will have to do an example because almsot no one seems to get it:
Best movie: Let the Right One In
In a time when crappy vampire love stories are the big thing, it's nice to see one that is interesting and engaging. The two main characters, Oskar and Eli, are a joy to watch. Oskar is a young boy who is hounded by bullies who torment him at school. He secretly seeks revenge and it's not in the form of some stupid prank. He is so driven by hatred for these boys that he wants them dead. Oskar wants to torture them the way they tortured him. However, he never feels like he can. The best thing about Oskar is that he is relatable in this sense. Those of us who are bullied sometimes want to get revenge on our tormenters but rarely do so.
Eli is a vampire who has been stuck in the body of a 12-year-old for a very long time. She is lonely and longs for companionship. Despite her warnings to Oskar, the two soon become close friends and that friendship soon blossoms into a romance. The romance between the two characters. It makes sense why they are attracted to one another. They are each the friend that the other never had.
Worst: Bratz (2007)
I feel ashamed that I ever watched this movie but a friend forced me to endure it because she used to love the Bratz. Once it was over, it took every ounce of my strength not to strangle her and demand to know why she made me sit through this piece fo crap.
Our four main characters are devoid of any personality. While the movie is supposed to be about the importance of friendship, it fails because it seems that the only thing these girls are obsessed with is fashion. Also, the performances from the main actresses are absolutely terrible.
It's a superficial piece of crap filled with stereotypes. The school they go to is divided into cliques and each person in that clique is a walking stereotype. The geeks, the cheerleaders, the goths (who act more like the "emo" stereotype), the tree huggers, the jocks, and so forth. Is there really any high school like that? I doubt it.
Also, did you know Jon Voight is in this movie? I sh*t you not. That's right, Academy Award winner Jon Voight is in a movie based on a sh*tty line of toys that promote superficiality. That's like putting Dakota Fanning in a movie about sparkly vampires!...Yeah, we're doomed.
This movie does every cliche in the book. The bitchy blonde antagonist, the self-righteous main characters, the romance that is devoid of any chemistry, the scene where everyone hates the main character and ditches her thus slowing down the movie, the make up scene where everyone forgives her, the scene where the main characters put the blonde bitch in her place, etc.
Do not go see this movie. It's a piece of sh*t.
Now, your review doesn't necessarily have to be as long as mine. Just a few things will do. You can just talk about the plot, characters, actors, theme, setting, or anything else.
