We have been working hard on our writing all year. This term we are doing report writing and information writing. This week we are working on movie reviews as part of our retelling abilities and building descriptive language to be better writers. Here is Sosaia's movie review, it is captivating reading!!



Movie Review

Title of film:The controller
Your Name:Sosaia

REMEMBER WHEN YOU ARE WRITING A REVIEW TO DESCRIBE THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY?

What happened in the story:
Benjamin was playing video games with a white, dirty, controller, until his mum came and told Benjamin madley, to go upstairs and clean his room. But he said, he already cleaned his room in the morning. But his mum said” Now, then he said” but mum, then his mum said” Now. Then he went upstairs and cleaned his, already cleaned up room. Then his mum swept the floor and saw Benjamin’s controller. Then she saw that the controller was dirty, so she sprayed it with H20(water), and then she got transferred from real life, to a game. Then she saw these small guys that had gold helmets. Then Benjamin came down stairs and saw his mum in the video game. Then she shouted” get me out of here”. Then a mop came out of nowhere and she fought those small guys to the death. Then she won and thought that she can get out of the game, but Benjamin said,” That was only the first level. Then he told mum that he can do a cheat. Then he did the cheat and mum went flying to the dragon level. Then she said,” That was awesome. Then the dragon came and pushed mum, which had mum had 1 in a half life. Then she got the mop and killed the dragon’s heart. Then she got transferred out of the game and huged Benjamin. Then she said.” you really did clean up your room, did you. He said” yes. Then mum got a controller and said,” Two player. The End.



Who were the characters in the movie, describe them (what did they look like): Benjamin had a video game controller on his shirt and it was blue on the outside, and the controller was lime, green. The mum had a pink top, blue jeans and black shoes.






What was the message of the movie?
Work together as a team.
