James Snyder's Movie Reviews
The opinions expressed in these views are my own. If you don't like my opinions, email me. If your opinion is informed and makes a sensible arguement in my judgement, I'll post it here! My movie review philosophy:
Most movie reviewers tell you there personal feelings about a movie. That's the nature of any movie review. My feeling is, to be useful, a movie review should also give you information on what the movie is about and under what circumstances the movie was viewed. Only then can a reader get a good idea of not only what the movie is about, but what might have affected what the reviewer saw. That is what I am endeavouring to do here. Let me know what you think!
I have also included my reviews of the theatres I have attended, hopefully allowing those interested in the viewing experience as much as going to a movie to make an informed decision. Also, if a theatre is below par, empowering viewers to demand improvement!
