We all want to show movies in class occasionally. I always fear two things: 1) students might not pay attention and 2) an administrator might make a surprise visit. Having students write a movie review holds them accountable and will (hopefully) make your administrator happy if they stop by your classroom during the movie.
You can give every student the same movie review handout, give different levels of students different handouts (great for differentiation), or give students a choice of 2 or 3 versions.
*The handouts are not subject-specific.
