….it just might exist


Choosing one of the below areas, compose a 300+ word review that expresses an opinion of a selected exemplar.

The purpose of any review is to help the reader in determining whether they should spend the time, energy or money experiencing what you have experienced. Being informed and professional are prerequisites for any review, however, that should not limit how you review (e.g. a sense of humor always helps the medicine go down). Reviews should be appealing to the reader: not purely subjective, and not overtly objective. Find a happy middle ground.

Finally, while this is not an academic piece of writing, I want you to begin applying what you are learning in class (i.e. identifying the rhetorical situation of this review). What does this mean? It means be very specific in your analysis of your exemplar! Ask

  • What is your subject and its context?
  • What is your purpose?
  • What is the exigence?
  • Who is your audience?
  • What is your relationship to the audience?

Review areas:


TV shows/series

Fine Art (e.g. music, painting, photograph, dance)

Video Games
