    Reviews of Two Science Fiction Movies

    E.T. : Is Extra-Terrific E.T. Is N.G.Vocabulary Use antonyms to determine word meaning: What does the word imaginary

    mean in this book? Look for clues for the meaning of this word on page 11. (Answer: not real; Clues/evidence: so he invented an imaginary friend; but in the movie the imaginary friend is real)

    Find It! Level 1 Comprehension Identify facts and details: What does Elliot call the alien? (E.T., page 7) Identify facts and details: Elliot helps E.T. create a . . . (phone, page 8)

    Look Closer! Level 2 Comprehension Compare and contrast: How are the person Spielberg invented when he was a

    child and E.T. the same? How are they different? Use a Venn diagram for help in answering the question. (they were both friends; the friend Spielberg invented was imaginary; the friend in the movie was real; he was an alien, page 7)

    Identify stated main idea: What sentence states the main idea of the third paragraph on page 8? (E.T. has special skills that you slowly learn about as the movie unfolds.)

    Prove It! Level 3 Comprehension Make inferences: Information on page 7 supports the inference that the actor

    playing Elliot is . . . (Answer: a good actor; Clues/evidence: as portrayed by Thomas, Elliot is one of the most appealing movie-kid characters I have ever seen)

    Make inferences: What clue on page 8 tells you that E.T. wants to go home? (Clues/evidence: He learns enough words to tell Elliott that he has to phone home so his spaceship will come back and pick him up.)

    Take It Apart! Level 4 Comprehension Analyze text structure and organization: The author uses cause and effect to tell

    about the search for E.T. Find this on page 8. (Scientists and government agents are searching for E.T.; they want to capture and study him)

  • Star Wars: Predictable EntertainmentStar Wars: A Blastoff for All

    Vocabulary Use description to determine word meaning: What does the word feisty mean in

    this book? Look for clues for the meaning of this word on page 15. (Answer: full of energy and courage; Clues/evidence: Princess Leia is one of the feisty leaders of the Rebel Alliance who shows a lot of courage)

    Find It! Level 1 Comprehension Identify facts and details: Who is the Rebel Alliance fighting against?

    (the Galactic Empire, page 15) Identify facts and details: Who controls the Empire? (an evil emperor, page 17)

    Look Closer! Level 2 Comprehension Identify stated main idea: What sentence best states the main idea of the

    third paragraph on page 15? (But for my taste, too many of the characters border on the silly.)

    Identify cause and effect: How can the Rebel Alliance succeed at the end of the movie according to the review Star Wars: A Blastoff for All? Use a cause-and-effect chart for help in answering the question. (they must fly a crucial mission to destroy the Death Star; they must shoot a torpedo to hit one exact spot, page 20)

    Prove It! Level 3 Comprehension Draw conclusions: What information on page 17 supports the conclusion that the

    reviewer really liked the movie? (Clues/evidence: this film has nonstop action and adventure; it has the most compelling characters and most dazzling special effects, too; plus, its a classic tale about good and evil; kids and adults can watch this movie over and over and never get tired of it)

    Identify unstated main ideas: What is the first paragraph on page 19 mainly about? (Answer: the special effects in the movie; Clues/evidence: they still have a big wow factor, I got a charge out of the three-dimensional hologram of Princess Leia; the Jedi lightsaber is the coolest sword with the neatest sounds; the battles are flat-out spectacular; your eyes will open wider than you thought possible when the Death Star blows apart a planet)

    Take It Apart! Level 4 Comprehension Analyze text structure and organization: The author uses descriptive details to

    tell what Darth Vader looks and sounds like. Find this on page 15. (He appears to be half machine and half human; he wears a creepy black helmet; he talks with a threatening hiss)

    Evaluate authors purpose: Why did the reviewer include the questions in the final paragraph of the review on page 20? (to get readers curious about what happens in the movie)
