A Movie Review is an Antiquated Propaganda Device, utilized by the Movie Studios and Newspapers, to drive Moviegoers to view certain movies.

It is often thought of and foolishly accepted as a Critic’s response or analysis of a Film, but the new Standard, the Movie Breakdown, has shown this to be a fallacy.

Because of its short length, it is unthinkable to consider the Movie Review as an analytical tool to fully encompass the complexity of a Great Film or Global Myth.

And Finally, due to Fake News, the Movie Review should be laid to rest, forgotten, and buried.


A Movie Review’s length varies from one paragraph to several paragraphs. 


A Movie Review is Non-Fiction and written in narrative prose.

Structure (Narrative and Story Development)

A Movie Review often includes the following:

Structure (Stylistic and Literary Purpose)

Aimed as a Analytic tool, the Movie Review’s purpose revolves around the Narrator’s stylistic approach to explaining whether this is a good movie or not.
