Movie Reviews on YouTube

I found some great movie reviews on YouTube to share with my students as we began our planning for writing Movie reviews! When I looked for reviews to share, I specifically wanted kid-friendly reviews on popular movies that included a summary, adjectives, and examples to back up what they were saying about the movie. Oh, and NO SPOILERS!

I paused the videos to discuss, and sometimes we rewatched different portions with our "writer's eyes", creating a chart of good writing moves and great words the reviewers used.

Check out the videos at these links. I've only embedded one to view here:

You may also be interested in checking out my Let's Go To The Movies unit on TPT. My favorite part of this unit is the Movie Ticket "feedback" (student-to-student), and serving up popcorn at our celebration. More on that later!
