Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 62 - Online Criticism
Inspired by nothing except a general sense of annoyance and frustration over the state of much of mainstream online criticism, Joe and I sat down to discuss some of the trends - including, but not limited to, endless lists, multi-page articles and a general movement away from long-form, considered film journalism - that we find most distressing. We also take time to talk about writers and sites that we like, but, hey, negativity sells, baby!
The SEO-Friendly Alternate Title for this episode is "This List Of 114 Things Wrong With Online Film Criticism Will Leave You Speechless."
