I’d like to give a Living in Cinema shout out to Ms. Rodgriguez and her 1st and 2nd period Reading and Language Arts classes at Southside Elementary in Miami, Florida. Living in Cinema was recently used in some assignments Ms. Rodriguez gave about writing reviews and this morning I had the pleasure of answering some sharp questions from her kids over the telephone.
I know I lost a few fans when I admitted I didn’t like Alice in Wonderland very much, but like I said: the most important thing to remember about reviewing a book or a movie is that you can’t be wrong if you can explain yourself in a way that makes sense to people. No matter what your opinion is, someone is going to disagree with you and that’s ok. That’s part of the fun of doing it. If you’re good, you might even find that you’re able to change people’s minds.
In fact, if you’re a huge Alice fan, feel free to send me an email telling me exactly why I’m wrong. Maybe we can convince Ms. R. to give out a little extra credit!
What do you say? Here’s my email: craig (at) livingincinema.com
Keep up the good work guys, and keep reading and writing.
