10 Ways to Be a Better Film Critic

Evan Derrick’s “10 Ways To Be a Better Film Critic”: Part One and Part Two.

This is quite a read, and I like a lot of what Derick’s said here.

Think about your favorite film critics. What makes their reviews stand out? What ruins a good movie review?

And if you want to get personal and tell me how my reviews might improve, feel free to comment. I’d like to know. (But no, I won’t necessarily post those. I’ll keep them to ponder.)
