Film studies

Here is the instruction of the homework, and I will upload the rubric and an example submitted before by classmate. Please look at them and make sure there is no plagiarism because there is detecting website the university uses.


As with all written assignments in this course, please be sure that your paper is single-spaced, in 12-point font, and in Times or Times New Roman typeface. In a single line at the top of your assignment, include: Your Name, A#, CCA 3330-SEC, Assignment Name, Assignment Date. If you have any questions about how to format your paper, please contact the course manager.


Prior to watching Much Ado About Nothing, read a film review on the website of one of the following major national newspapers: Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, or Washington Post. You should
look for a review of the same film you are watching for class. Instead, you should look for a review of the same
—in this case, either drama or romantic comedy will be acceptable. Your goal is to consider the standard way in which films are professionally reviewed. You should keep this in mind as you watch the film and as you prepare to write your own review of it. In the works cited section at the end of your written assignment, you will include the citation for the review you read.

You should label each part of your paper with the
bold headings
provided below. Other than the headings,
do not copy
the text of the prompts into your paper.

Your responses must
follow the order of the prompts
as outlined below, with
clear paragraph breaks
to show that you have followed the prompts in sequence.

Your responses must be in
, or paragraph, format.

While you will not be graded on word count or page length, your responses must include
specific detail
thoughtful analysis

The expected length of a paper that meets rubric requirements is more than 1 page, but no more than 2 pages.

Examine the rubric below to see how your paper will be graded.

Part 1: Review

of the film. Your review should include:

things about the film you did and did not like,

anything from the film that you found especially appealing or distracting,

and whether or not you would recommend this film to others.
Be specific.

Part 2: Character Examination

of the following characters: Don John

the character you have chosen.
the character as you read him in the text with his portrayal in the film—what similarities or differences did you find between his portrayal in the text and his portrayal in the film? In what
ways did the film add
to his character? Consider his props, clothing, and the settings in which he is portrayed.

Part 3: The Entrapment of Benedick and Beatrice

First, read the following text about film as an art form:

“Film employs the same basic properties of other media. It has compositional elements like line, form, mass, volume, and texture. It uses 3-dimensional space like sculpture. It incorporates movement like dance. It has dialog like literature and poetry….”However, it is unlike any other genre of art by its quality of free and constant motion. The continuous interplay of sight, sound, and motion allows film to transcend the static limitations of painting and sculpture-in the complexity of its sensual appeal as well as in its ability to communicate simultaneously on several levels. Film surpasses drama in its unique capacity for revealing various points of view, portraying action, manipulating time, and conveying a boundless sense of space. Unlike stage productions, film can provide a continuous, unbroken flow, which blurs and minimizes transitions without compromising the story’s unity. Unlike the novel or the poem, film communicates directly, without abstract symbols like words on a page but through concrete images and sounds…”

—Boggs, Joseph M., and Dennis W. Petrie. The Art of Watching Films. 7th ed. New York: McGraw Hill, 2008.

Second, respond to the following two prompts. Label these 3A and 3B in your paper.

Then, give a brief
of the film’s portrayal of these two scenes (Act 2, Scene 3 and Act 3, Scene 1). Do you think the film’s portrayal was effective? Why or why not?

Works Cited
Close your paper with a works cited section. Your works cited should include a citation for the newspaper review you read at the beginning of the assignment.

When you submit this assignment, please only include a comment if you have a question or another pertinent message to send to the instructional team. Do not include redundant information in the comments box, such as your name, A#, or file name. Each comment sends an email to the instructional team; entering redundant information clogs the system and delays our ability to respond to students who actually need help.
