    Through your blog post ‘Gojira’ you have shown excellent research skills in discovering some interesting facts about the film you watched. You effectively compared the film to an already existing and quite popular film. You created contrast and got the audience thinking, which I enjoyed reading. When reading your blog, it was interesting to discover your personal background and the link you found between your life and the film. It’s very impressive to discover that you were introduced to a culture, which you were not personally apart of.

You have also effectively incorporated hyperlinks, very nice. I look forward to reading the blog posts that are yet to come.
