Analyzing Criteria

I need an explanation for this Writing question to help me study.


1.) Think of a movie or television show that you really enjoyed or really disliked (something for which you had a strong reaction in either direction). Then go to a review aggregate site like or and locate a review that disagrees with your assessment of the movie or film (ie. if you loved the movie, find a decidedly negative review).

2.) Read the review and analyze the criteria the reviewer used to make their evaluation of the film or television show. What part of their evaluation differs from yours? Do you simply disagree with their evidence? Did they use criteria for evaluation that you wouldn’t have used? The goal is to try to analyze an opposing evaluation to understand how they came to a different opinion.

3.) As a discussion post here, post the link to the review and a 250+ word analysis explaining how/why the evaluation differed from your opinion.
