Space Oddities' Film Review


  1. Hi Ruby,
    Just a couple of quick comments today, as your reviews are improving every time :)
    You are still writing in a conversational way in parts; for example, 'You had your typical fair-haired woman' and ' which was amazing but at times made you cringe'. Try and keep it as formal as possible. My other point today is in regards to your quotes; they should be italicised. Also, try introducing them via the author's name, so that they don't feel like they are just floating, for example,

    'As film reviewer Roger Ebert notes, 'Modern viewers will shift uneasily intheir seats during the stereotyping of the islanders' (Ebert, 2002) From this it could be argued that... blah blah blah...'

    That way you are showing that you understand why you have used the quote, and what it relevance is.
