We’ve been working with some famous period films, now it’s time we see here some of their best known scenes and dialogues.
William Wallace: “They may take away our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!”
Rett Butler: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
Jack in Titanic: “I am the king of the world”
Rick in Casablanca: “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Maximus in Gladiator:
“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius,
Commander of the Armies of the North,
General of the Felix Legions,
loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius.
Father to a murdered son,
husband to a murdered wife.
And I will have my vengeance,
in this life or the next.”
The last kind of text we are revising (you had seen all of them before) are reviews. Here you have all the materials you need to write a good review of a movie or book. Just help yourselves!!!
Apart from what you can see in the presentation, don’t forget all the methods we have learnt to attract the reader’s attention, to use vocabulary related to the subject-matter and to use topic sentences.
