5. Read expert reviews - Experts are the people who have been reviewing movies for a long time on the web, in newspapers or magazine columns. Take a look at their writing style, and how they discuss the pros and cons of watching a particular movie. Learn the patterns in which they start and finish a review. 

6. Include a plot summary - This has to be quite objective and just give audiences an idea about what to expect. Make sure that you do not discuss the interesting plot twists of the movie openly, as that can actually diminish the interest of audiences.
