'From Script to Screen' Film Review.

  1. Hi Ruby,
    Happy new film year to you :)

    Ok, when using quotes, make sure that they are really working for you, and that they make sense in the context of your text. For example you say, ‘The soundtrack's texture is similarly sparse' - the 'similarly' would infer that you had already been talking about something else being sparse beforehand, but you haven't. It is perfectly ok to take bits out of a quote (as long as what you leave still makes sense); you replace the missing bit with 3 dots to show that there is something missing. So, this would have made more sense. ' ‘

    The soundtrack's texture is...sparse, and the fluid montage leads the viewer into the sensation of watching moving images'.
    Your last quote is a bit of a cop-out really! :) ‘This is Marker's masterpiece' doesn't really tell your reader anything, other than that Jonathan Curiel enjoyed it. If you are using Rotten Tomatoes, make sure that you access the full review, so you can refer to WHY the reviewer enjoyed it.
