What Should I Write About?

Wow, I am having a hard time thinking of what I should write about for my argumentative paper. I'm really not that sure if I have something to "argue". ^^;

Transformers 2 Review

The author is trying to prove the point that even though the director of the movie, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", is a tad bit off of his rocker, he made a great production, full of amazing techniques to make an interesting movie. The author of the review gives specific examples of the movies breath taking special effects by using descriptive words to describe it and let you in on what you would see if you wathced it. I think that the review was very affective due to the fact that it made me want to go rent the movie.

Problems With Evaluation

I am evaluating a video game and I am having a hard time not just summarizing the game and I'm not sure what to do. :/

Problems w/ Evaluations

I'm having a hard time with my paper. I'm writing about a television show and I'm not quite sure to focus on. Why do we watch? or a simple evaluation in general. The only thing I feel like I'm doing is writing a summary of the tv show and saying its cool so watch it. To solve this I think I'm going to try to figure out more criteria on what makes a good show and do some research to compare it to other tv shows similar.

The Dark Knight

I missed last Friday so hopefully there isn't guidelines that I missed but here goes.

I've seen the movie and I could sincerely relate to this evaluation. It seems to be very well written and exactly what I've been trying to get at in my paper but I'm still struggling. It covers the main points of the movie and even drags out the fact that the author couldn't really find anything to complain about. I would agree that the author could have gone into more detail but nonetheless I found it to be valuable.

The Departed Review
Review is near the bottom of the page*

I agree with the writter of this article. I though the departed was a great movie, in part because of scorsase's brillant directing. I also thought the cast was absolutelty perfect in this movie. My favorite personal role being Mark Whalberg. The only part i dont agree on is his overall review of the movie. I think this movie deserves a 9.5 or 10 out of 10. One of the most exciting, and interesting movies I have seen in a long time. The review however wasnt as interesting, the author could have done a better job but overall it wasn't bad.

Response to Evaluation- The Proposal

I read a review of the movie The Proposal by Lisa Schwarzbaum for Entertainment Weekly. I really liked how she set it up, I found it clever. The movie has to do with a wedding so she has it divided her review into categories of something old (telling how the movie is like others), something new (telling how the movie is unique), something borrowed (what kind of techniques were taken from other movies) and something old (this part discusses 87-year-old Betty Whites role). Although I disagree with the rating she gave the movies I really enjoyed reading this review and found how it was organized and written refreshing.
