Pirates of the Caribbean
Film Magazine Review
The text is big, bold and clear so that it can grab
the audiences attention. It takes up quite a large
proportion of the A4 page. The colour is also
vibrant and is suits well with the connotations that
are associated with the colour red, such as it being
a dangerous colour. This code helps to emphasise
the films genre; which is fantasy adventure. The
wording is in capital letters which makes it more
striking and creates a bigger impact when the
advice begin to read the review.
At the side of the page it has a question and answer
interview with the actor who plays the protagonist. This is
an effective piece of content that will help intrigue the
audiences attention, as Johnny Depp is a famous actor; this
means it is more than likely that a large proportion of the
audience will be interested in watching the film purely on
the basis that he is starring the lead role in it. The way that
it is set out is very clear by separating the questions to the
answers by the colour of the text. Using red makes it look
professional as it matches with the title of the film. The
questions asked are quite personal by asking about his
family life whilst also asking more about the film. This helps
to catch the audiences attention.
A large image that takes up half the
page is placed at the top of the page
so that it is the first thing the
audience can see. Choosing a shot
that is visibly clear what genre the
film is will help to target the audience
identify whether they will be
interested in it or not.
The pitch is clearly labelled in bright righting is the
audience are aware of what they are reading and
what the article is about. Its language is very chatty
and friendly which the audience will feel more
comfortable when reading.
The heading is titled ‘The Talent’ which
automatically sets a good vibe for the rest
of the review. This is formatted the same as
‘The Pitch’ title which makes it look
effective and professional looking.
Underneath is the writing where it lists
important names that are to do with the
film, including the famous actors and
directors. Editing them so they are in bpd
makes it more eye catching for the
audience to read, as well known names will
set a better impression on the film.
Considering the magazine review is a
single page spread there is not a lot of
content in the text body. However all the
way through it, it sings praises for the film
and Johnny Depp himself. The author
throughout uses comparisons to other
films Johnny Depp has starred in so that it
helps the audiences understanding when
the author is trying to declare a point.
A secondary image is used at the bottom of the
magazine review of the protagonist. This will help
to catch the audiences attention but also inform
the audience that he is the person the article is
about as some audience members may get
confused as to who Johnny Depp is with there
being two characters in the main image.
