Reading

PRACTICE 1:

 

Critique de Wolverine: le combat de l'immortel

Tout d'abord il est important de préciser que le scénario ferra beaucoup d'entorses au comics d'origine et qu'il ne respectera pas totalement l'intrigue initiale et les personnages . Mais malgré cela l'intrigue à le mérite d’être travaillé, cohérente et de laisser plus de place à ses personnages qu'à ses scènes d'actions. Les personnages sont pour la plupart très bons ( mise a part Vipère qui est plus souvent ridicule qu'effrayante) et vu que le scénario est sous forme d'un complot. Certains personnages ne seront ni bon ni mauvais mais agiront pour ce qu'ils estiment nécessaires. Coté casting les acteurs sont bons notamment l'excellente Rila Fukushima et la sensationnelle Tao Okamoto mais c'est Hugh Jackman qui irradie l'écran de son charisme animal, il n'a jamais incarné le personnage avec autant de détermination à tel point qu'il en devient Wolverine, il aime ça et sa se voit. Pour conclure même si les mutants on eux jusque là des adaptations plus ou moins réussi avec leurs deux derniers films ils se promettent un avenir radieux.

Les Questions

  1. Would you consider this critic to be more positive or negative?
  2. How close does this movie come to the original comics?
  3. How do they feel about the actors?
  4. Who was the best actor in the movie?
  5. Can we expect other amazing mutant films?

Here are some key things you will want to include:

  • Summary of the film and characters (without giving away the plot)
  • Details of production (Where was the movie was filmed? Characters in movie, problems with filming, length of film)
  • Fun facts and behind the scenes information (What crazy things happened while shooting, what were some of the struggles or difficulties you had, etc.)

Writing

PRACTICE 7 & 8:

For this unit, because you will be seeing many films, you will need to do a review of one of them. Your review will be simple, but complete.

Here are some key things you will want to include:

  • Description of main characters
  • Some movie details (genre, setting, conflict, climax)
  • Educated opinion of the film
  • Rating of the film

Here is an example of one student's review. Use this as a a segway into your review.

 

J'ai trouvé le film un peu ridicule. Toute l'histoire était barbante. Le début du film a bien commencé, mais après je me suis perdu dans l'intrigue. Les mouvements de caméra n'étaient pas très fluides. Et aussi les personnages n'avaient pas beaucoup d'émotions. Bref, c'était null. Je suggère que vous ne perdiez pas votre temps d'aller le voir.

Communication

PRACTICE 9:

Listen to the conversation below as an example. Then create a dialogue with a friend of your own to practice.

Mathieu: Salut!
Jaqueline:Salut! Qu'est-ce qu'il y avait au cinéma hier soir ?
M: On passait Pitch Perfect, un film américain.
J: C'était en version française ou doublé ?
M: Non, il n'y avait pas de doublage, c'était en version originale sous-titrée.
J: Ça a passé où?
M: Ça passe au grand cinéma sur le grand écran.
J: La séance était à quelle heure ?
M: Il y avait une séance à 18 heures et à 20 heures. Je suis allé à 18 heures.
J: Tu as aimé le film ?
M: Oui, un peu. C'est à dire, j'ai bien rit. J'ai apprécié la comédie, mais en fait, je préfère les vieux films classiques en noir et blanc et le cinéma muet. Le film n'avait pas d'intrigue très profond et les actrices, bien qu'elles étaient belles et chantaient bien, n'étaient pas très mémorables.
J: Pas vrai. Je ne te savais pas que tu étais cinéphile.
M: Si, si, si. Je vais au Festival de Cannes chaque année.
J: Mais moi, je préfère les films parlants et en couleur. J'adore les films d'action, les films d'aventure et les films d'horreur. Tu as vu le film Wolverine ?
M: Moi, non, je n'aime pas ce genre de film. J'ai juste vu la bande-annonce. Tu l'as vu quand?
J: Hier soir à 20 heures.
M: Eh ben, dis donc, c'était comment?
J: C'était terrifiant. L'intrigue était très intense et l'action ne cessait du début jusqu'à la fin. Hugh Jackman était fabuleux. On a fait surtout un grand effort sur les effets spéciaux. C'était aussi un grand succès commercial.
M: Ça ne veut rien dire.
J: Si, ça veut dire que tout le monde l'adorait.
M: Peut-être, mais moi je ne perdrai pas mon argent pour aller voir ce film là.
J: Tant pis pour toi.
