Start with an anecdote, maybe talk about how you were looking forward to seeing the film because of the hype, or what you were expecting of it.... You could also try a rhetorical question, a sarcastic and funny statement, a good metaphor or similie.

I've read his books and find them useful. I've been training dogs since the 80s and have had a grooming business for 15 years. I've taught obedience as well as competed. I don't think I've ever read a book on dogs that I didn't get something worthwhile out of. I have found that he has explained for me why something I have done for years works. Some people can't stand to see anyone succeed at what they do and do well. Always consider the source of any advice you get.

Use a plethora of adjectives or "words" in the review to really entice the reader and keep them enthralled. Also, talk about your expectations. Were they substantial or scarce? Did you think the characters were one-dimensional or easily relatable? Was it a bad movie because it was tediously paced? Ask these questions theoritically and it'll ring a bell.

I think the key is to be very in touch with how a movie affected you emotionally. My rule of thumb is that the most important word in a review is "I." Although you certainly have to assess the movie from a technical point of view, it's your emotional response that really matters. I've reviewed movies that weren't technically "good" but entertained me nevertheless. I give those movies credit for having a positive impact on me, even if they don't quite measure up in technical areas.

eh... depends on who you want to write the review for... and your own personal style... you want to think about the movie... and comparisons to other movies (especailly other movies by those in the movies, actors/directors/writers)... and what "stuck out" to you... when you think about the movie after you watched it... what do you think about...I would start there... and was that one thing good or bad... then maybe touch on the storyline... wouldn't go much past the middle of the story of the movie in the review though... don't want to spoil anything, if the review is for the public... technical aspects... can be important if your audience is tech savvy... if you're writting for a technical journal or something, you should of course focus on it...but overall, I wouldn't dwell on it more than a few lines of "the direction was fantastic"... if something REALLY stood out technically, then dwell away though...
