Be a Critic of Nostalgia! http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/be-a-critic-of-nostalgia/ Tasked me with creating a video that critiques a classic movie. I had to find a movie from my childhood so I simply searched a list of movies from the 1990s and was shocked at how many i never watched but so many that I had and it brought back memories. My dad is a big sci-fi movie guy so it would only be natural that I would remember a sci-fi movie more than others.
The movie that I chose to discuss was Mars Attack (1996). Mars attack was a movie directed by Tim Burton which depicts aliens invading and destroying Earth. Only to be stopped by the playing of a song from the 1950s. It is composed of computer generated aliens that at the time when it first came out I thought was super cool. Some of the cast from the movie includes: Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Michael J . Fox, Tom Jones, Natalie Portman, Pam Grier, Ray J, and so many more.
I used Windows Movie Maker to record myself critiquing this movie. I used the editing tools to insert the music that is needed to give you my viewers an idea of what a certain song is that plays a major part in the movie.
I checked out his site before doing this critique and there is so much that you can view. I kind of got side tracked when I saw topic of interest to me like the Simpsons lol! His site it cool and I would encourage you to check it out at
