Having an Educated Opinion about Movies

Having an Educated Opinion about Movies

“Anybody can sit, watch a movie, hype, criticize or condemn the movie, but it takes having a great love and knowledge of film, and an ability to put aside your mood, distractions, or biases to see a movie beyond just the view…”  

Having an educated opinion about movies is not about just stating the “good” and “bad” about a movie, but having a breadth of knowledge that allows you to compare a movie/TV show to the bunch of entertainment that came before it, it is the ability to discern between the good, the bad and the ugly. You have to analyze character and plot development, performance, cinematography, directing, editing, and writing. 

It is a skill that can be developed by going to a good film school and gaining understanding of film analysis, it also requires taking time to write reviews. In some cases, you may need to take notes as you watch films and dig into the symbolism, meaning, and themes just to reach a conclusion that is fair and balanced. This skill grooms you into becoming a good director, filmmaker, scriptwriter, or producer.

Guys it is true that everyone is entitled to their opinion but there is a difference between having an opinion about movies and having an educated opinion about movies, and the difference is that one is attributed to just anybody while the other is a skill gotten from the refinement in your knowledge. The days are drawing nearer and in due time the doors to the best refinery “KAP Film and Television Academy” will be opened. “Ire” 😊
