Snowpiercer movie-write down how it makes you feel
While watching your movie, write down how it makes you feel. Take notes throughout. Pause and rewind if necessary. Write down places of key dialogue that struck you as moving or provoking. Write about if it confused you (and how). And if necessary, watch the movie again! And if you don’t like the movie, don’t forget that you can watch another option on the list! That’s why I included more than one movie.
Part I – The Magic of the Movie
1. Describe (briefly) the plot of your movie .
Secondly, What’s the setting?
Thirdly, Who are the main characters?
Fourthly, What was the challenge and how was it resolved? Don’t tell me every single detail! Just the main points.
2. Describe the magic of your movie .
Secondly, How did the film immerse you in its world?
Thirdly, Did it sustain your belief in the world and reality it created?
3. How would you describe the form, content, and style of your movie? Were any obvious techniques used (use of colours, camera, sound, patterns) to create the look and feel of your movie? What made the movie you watched unique?
Part II – What’s the Movie Really About?
1. What was the explicit meaning of your movie?
Secondly, Meaning, what did it communicate directly?
Thirdly, This would be the surface level meaning of the film. (Note: this should be brief)
2. What was the implicit meaning of your movie?
Secondly, That is, what theme (or themes) did it express? At a deeper level (beyond what you can see) what is the film trying to tell you about human relationships, emotions, challenges and mistakes, hope, redemption, etc.
3. Finally, tell me about the interpretative meaning of the film.
Secondly, What values did it convey about life, the human condition, and even failure?
Thirdly, How did it portray faith and the power of belief? Did your movie inspire you, give you hope, or caused you to re-evaluate something about your life?
4. What message did the movie “preach”?
Secondly, How did the movie present ethical, moral, relational, social, or faith/trust issues?
Also, Did the movie align with your own views on religion and faith (negative or positive)? Who or what do the characters put the trust in? -Each other? No one? God? Nothing?
Firstly, What movie did you watch? – should be obvious
Secondly, What did you like about your movie? What did you dislike? – Again, shouldn’t be too hard
Thirdly, How did the movie move you, caused you to think, confused or shocked you? – be honest
Lastly, What message did your movie “preached”? Does the movie promote values that confirm or contrast with religious ones? Explain.
