In a way, this post is basically the movie version of shower thoughts. Bear with me. After Twitter user @jazz_inmypants asked people to share bothering movie details that aren't common knowledge, his thread received quite a few interesting insights. For example, Grease (1978) might be described as a story that teaches you to change yourself until other people like you. And Belle's (Beuty and the Beast (1991)) neighbors are probably doing something shady if the village can support such an extensive bookstore when she's the only reader and doesn't even pay. The tweet by @jazz_inmypants has already received over 30K likes and 1K comments, many of which filmmaking students could definitely rework into term papers.

Altogether, a film can seem incredibly complicated, but the reasoning behind every decision nearly always comes down to how it is working with the story and how it is affecting the viewer. With that in mind, the New York Film Academy has prepared some tips for reviewing a film and coming up with your own insights.

Watch it. "Once is necessary twice is preferable," the academy wrote. "Taking notes is also a good idea and will help the writing process by making it easy to refer to your in-the-moment thoughts and reactions."

Express your initial thoughts and support your criticism. "Professional reviewers do not shy away from telling their readers whether they thought the movie was good bad or indifferent, and in fact readers come to rely on those reviewers whose tastes reflect their own when deciding whether or not to spend their time and money. Professional reviewers also have watched a lot of movies and can express why and how they came to their criticism. Be sure to back up your thoughts with specifics–a disappointing performance, a ridiculous plot, beautiful cinematography, difficult material that leaves you thinking, and so on."

Evaluate the acting. "Many casual filmgoers will be inspired to see a movie if a favorite actor is in it, so you should probably spend a little space talking about the performances: seasoned actor in a new kind of role, brilliant performance from a rising star, excellence despite a lackluster script, dynamics in an ensemble, and so much more can be said about the actors in any given film."

Give Harvey a break. He's been hospitalized, is missing half his face and is probably hopped up on sedatives. Of course he's going to have trouble recognizing that his nurse is the Joker.

Directing, cinematography, special effects... This is where your inner film geek can really shine. Consider the highlights or missteps of directors, cinematographers, costume designers and CGI magicians. What worked, what surprised, what fell short of expectations, are all great questions to address.

It's also important to look at a film’s story from a structural viewpoint. Try to to keep in mind that the vast majority of films fall into the three-act structure: a beginning, middle, and end. It's not because the screenwriters are lazy, but because the formula simply works. In screenplays, the first thing you should look out for is the inciting incident. Generally, about 10 minutes into the film, there will be a moment that forces the protagonist to exit their comfort zone and start their journey towards a new goal. Around the thirty-minute mark, there is usually a major turning point. At this moment, the hero can't go back, that signals the beginning of the second act where the majority of the film will take place. Finally, around the ninety-minute mark, the second turning point will signal the film’s drive towards both its conclusion and resolution.

Of course, some films don’t fit perfectly into the three-act structure, but the vast majority of films do and you can start to get a sense of when important moments or changes will occur when you know the general format.

Did you know that this movie is based on the German book "Das doppelte Lottchen" from Erich Kästner? The girls are Luise and Lotte from Vienna and Munich respectively. The book was written around 1945 so the story makes much more sense regarding the timeframe. Today its stupid of course but back then it wasn't that easy to keep in contact when miles apart.

Baby is 17 and Johnny is 25. (Obviously not the real ages of the actors.) Not an issue for the times as the age of consent for marriage was 14 at the time. That did recently change. This is based on the life of a real person. It's a bit weird for us today, but this is less strange for me than Jerry Lee Lewis marrying his 13-yr old cousin.

He wasn't into her, not until he got to know her as a person. Their age difference wasn't too large, *and* the movie was dealing with a lot of moral gray areas. This was more like Wuthering Heights than your average feel-good rom-com. To me, the takeaway was that age does not guarantee good decisions; Baby's older sister makes terrible choices despite being older.

There are actually a few good reasons why the eagle plan would have been a lot riskier. 1) The Ring has a will of its own and often drops from the grasp of whomever holds it. If, during flight, the Ring fell, the heroes would most likely never find it again before Sauron did -- especially if it fell over Mordor or the Dead Marshes. 2) While maybe not as strong as the Eagles in the air, the Ringwraiths are quite comfortable in the skies and I'm certain the Ringbearer would be less safe aloft than on the ground, where there are hiding places and escape routes. 3) As an intelligent race of Middle-Earth, the Eagles are as susceptible to the corrupting influence of the One Ring as any other. Discord would have been sown in the ranks of the Eagles and the Heroes, and that is another complication that Gandalf probably wouldn't have risked.
