  1. I agree with you about how the theme of the poem, I like how you have most of the elements of a movie poster, but why did you choose to draw the poster by hand, instead of doing it on a laptop? Because if you draw it by hand it is quite messy.

  2. Wow! I didn’t know that there was a movie on the poem! And 99.99%?? That’s crazy! I really liked the way you made your movie poster, it shows the mood of the story and is also visually appealing. Plus, it has features that make it a movie poster, like the “Imax”, quotes, and title. I think you could go deeper into the explanation of your poster in your paragraph, and use some more quotes. Otherwise, I really like your post!

  3. Great poster, I think hand drawing the poster adds some elements that otherwise won’t work out on the computer. I like the creativity and thought that went into this. I also like how you embedded the quotes into the poster.
