When is it due?

Due:  December 2nd, 2013 by 10pm.


These databases are particularly helpful:


Find reviews...

Find three reviews from the original run of your movie.  Be aware of dates, especially if there has been a remake or similarly titled film.  Also, remember you are looking for movie reviews, not theatre reviews.  Summarize each review into 4-5 sentences.  Cite the original article.
