【英文论文写作经验文章】如何写好一篇英文影评(Movie Review)

一位好的电影评论者并不一定需要具备好的英语水平。在这里,每个人都能够评论一部电影。但是,当你需要从专业的角度去写一篇影评时,你的评论应该有一定的观点和意义。你不能笼统地用“恩,这部电影很不错”或“这个演员演技太差”来表达你的观点;而是要给出具体的原因和理由。

如果你觉得你准备好了,你可以开始写下你的影评向MovieFilmReview.com网站投稿。

这里有一个关于影评写作的指导供您参考——包含了一些在实际写作中的技巧。我们不限制你的写作风格、字数、你必须写(或不能写)的内容,我们提供了如下的指导意见来帮助你写一篇影评。

影评标题

第一段

  • 需要包括以下内容:影片名称,主演,场景(时间和地点),以及电影类型(喜剧,冒险,戏剧等)

第二段

  • 需要介绍该电影的剧情梗概。不需要透露结局。讨论至少5件小事,并确保它们覆盖了整部电影,除了结局。

第三段

  • 讨论电影的一个方面。您可以从演技,导演,剪辑,服装设计,布景设计,摄影,背景音乐,或其他任何你可能想到的方面来选择。要确保你的描写是具体详细,可以从电影中找例子。

第四段

  • 讨论电影的另一个方面。您可以从演技,导演,剪辑,服装设计,布景设计,摄影,背景音乐,或其他任何你可能想到的方面来选择。当然很明显,这段选择的方面是不同于上一个段落的。也要确保你的描写是具体详细的,可以从电影中找例子。

第五段

  • 写出这部电影给你的总体感受以及你对这部电影的评价。也包括你向观众推荐这部电影的理由。

记住,以上的指导意见仅仅是一般的格式。它只是一个广范的参考,如果你想套用这个格式写出自己的影评,就需要你跳出自己原来的模式。下面提供一个影评范文¬¬¬¬——“阿甘正传”( Forrest Gump)。

Forrest Gump

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” However, when you watch Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks as Forrest and Robin Wright as Jenny, you know you are going to get a lot of laughs and even a few tears. The screenplay for the 1994 movie was written by Eric Roth, based on the novel by Winston Groom. The story follows Forrest through 30 years of trials and tribulations, placing Forrest within historical moments of history, and in pursuit of his one dream–his “most special friend,” Jenny. According to the Washington Post, Forrest Gump won Oscar awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (Hanks), Best Director (Robert Zemeckis), Film Editing, Visual Effects and Adapted Screenplay. The movie was well deserving of these awards since the acting and the visual effects were extraordinary.

The films’ actors success in portraying their characters is a major factor in the film’s awards. Tom Hanks and Robin Wright worked well together, just like “peas and carrots.” The on-screen chemistry between the two was phenomenal. I felt a real connection between the two, finding myself mad at Jenny when she blew Forrest off and in tears when he told her that he was heading to Vietnam. Mokui’s Movie Review states “Tom Hanks IS Forrest Gump…He breathes life into the guy and you will feel what Forrest feels” (1994, par 1). James Berardinelli states, “Robin Wright gives the best performance of her career, surpassing what she accomplished in The Playboys” (1994, par2). Another performance that stands out is that of Gary Sinise. Sinise plays the part of Lieutenant Dan Taylor, whose life is saved by Forrest during the Vietnam War. James Berardinelli writes, “In this movie, his Lieutenant Dan Taylor is riveting” (1994, par 3). I thought that Sinise was quite convincing with his emotions throughout the movie, as if he was really a disabled vet who had lost both legs in the war.

Just as good as the actors were those working behind the scenes with the special effects. Throughout Forrest Gump the special effects were incredible. During Lieutenant Taylor’s scenes, I was convinced that he really didn’t have legs. I was studying the scenes, looking for any signs of legs, trying to figure out how it was done. It turns out that each and every frame was painted over to give it the true to life values that it holds. Also bringing the movie more credibility was the ability to place Forrest in history making events. These events ranged from Forrest teaching Elvis how to swing his hips to meeting Presidents for various accomplishments. These television clips of Forrest were done with such finesse that they look real. Critic Brian Webster (2003) states, “This is handled virtually flawlessly; if you didn’t know better, you’d believe that a fellow named Gump really did tell President Lyndon Johnson that he had been shot in the rump while acting heroically in Vietnam” (par 2). Rolling Stone (2003) states, “The effects dazzle, though never at the expense of the story” (Travers, par 2).

This story, complete with the Oscar winning performances in both acting and special effects is perfect for those in need of a dose of goodness. My family enjoys watching Forrest Gump together for rejuvenation, to view someone with true values of honesty, friendship and family. Forrest, with his heart of gold and his low IQ, never gives up. He always looks for the best in every scenario. The movie opens with a feather floating down over the city, landing at Forrest’s feet. Near the end of the story, Forrest questions, “Do we each have a destiny – or do we just float around accidental, like on a breeze?” As you are contemplating this question, the feather reappears and floats through the countryside right up into the ending credits.

现在,让我们看看你在写影评之前需要做些什么:

步骤

  1. 看一部电影。在看电影时思考你喜欢哪里不喜欢哪里,并努力记住这些,因为你需要在写影评时用到。
  2. 回家,写下你在看电影时收集到的所有的信息。先将这些信息放在那里,因为你现在需要时间去回顾思考这部电影。但不要将这些信息放在那里超过一整天,因为如果时间太长的话,你可能会对电影失去兴趣也会忘掉一些你认为很重要的信息。
  3. 以一种方便读者阅读的形式写下你从这部电影中获得的所有信息。记住,要给没看过这部电影的人们一个简单的总结,但要记住的是,不能给出电影的最终结局,也不能写出任何他们不想得到的部分,因为这些部分可能会破坏掉人们对电影的印象。
  4. 记住整个影评到约600-700字就足够了。
  5. 向其他人展示出你的影评,以至于他们有机会看到你的观点,之后,你可能会开始让人们想要看到你的更多的影评。

小贴士

  • 记得回顾你看过的每一部电影,因为当你养成这个习惯时,你会发现写影评会变得很容易。
  • 一旦你从影评中得到自信,你需要试图将电影的风格与评论的语气相匹配。比如,幽默的写作风格更适合喜剧,而严肃的语气更适合写戏剧评论。

同样,正如上面提到的,我们提供的不是一个十分严格的影评格式以及影评字数的限制。我们主要是鼓励你要有自己的写作风格,从而使你写作更顺利而不是写作更死板。你将会得到更多的读者,更多的人欣赏你的风格并同意你的观点。
