Use at least five adverbs and five adjectives to write a brief review of a movie, sporting event, musical performance, or television show.
• Bold each adverb.
• Underline each adjective.
• Compare the event to one or more similar events. When comparing, use at least three comparatives and three superlatives.

** I need feedback to make sure I have all my superlatives , comparitives, adverbs and adjectives in the below paragraph:

Recently (adverb) I watched the 2006 version of “Omen” it was different (adjective) from the 1976 version. The movie is about an ambassador to the United States whose wife has a stillborn child. Without her knowledge, he substitutes another baby as theirs. It turns out the child is the son of Satan and can only be killed with the seven daggers of Meggado. Every movie is unique, and in every (adverb) remake, you can always (adverb) see the similarities and differences. One noticeable difference (comparative) was the beginning set in the Vatican and controversially using footage of real-life disasters (such as 9/11) to signal the impending arrival of the anti-Christ .The major difference in the movie was the way the mother of the child died. In the 1976 version the little boy was more demonic (comparative) than the boy in the remake. Still, the movie had many great moments. The acting was not the greatest (comparative) but the story was more realistic (adverb).The previews for the “Omen” remake had less (superlative) advertisement than the 1976 version. I think both versions were well written but I am a bigger fan of the original.

    These are incorrect. The others are right.

    in every (adverb) remake
    Since "remake" is a noun, "every" must be an adjective.

    noticeable difference (comparative)
    No comparison here.

    not the greatest (comparative)
    Isn't this superlative?

    more realistic (adverb)
    Doesn't this compare two nouns?

    less (superlative) advertisement
    Please check the difference between comparative and superlative.
