Black 1 Wes Black, Mail Box #598 Professor Libengood ENG 131 7 April 2008 Final Draft Everyone’s A Critic? Every once in a while, a movie comes along that would lift the spirit by demonstrating the open mindedness of America. What does the word Critic really mean? Critic is known as one who expresses a reasoned opinion on any matter especially involving a judgment of its value, truth, righteousness, beauty, or technique. The Star Rating Method is one way for Critics to give reviews for movies. The star ratings range from zero stars (beneath disapproval) to four stars (first-rate). Among reviewers of movies, TV shows, theatre, and music, the star system is the most popular classification system. One star generally indicates the worst rating though some reviewers use "No-stars" or "Bomb" to indicate the lowest rating possible. Some reviewers also allow for increments of ½-stars such as 1½ star or 3½ stars for example. When people go to restaurants for example, the star rating method goes the same way. When someone wants Mexican food, they would go to a Mexican restaurant with the highest ratings; instead of going to the same type of restaurant with the lowest ratings. Movie Critics tend to see hundreds of movies a year, it’s their job. Movie Critics goal is to see one hundred movies in one year. Some of the movies they see are in theaters, but mainly most of the movies they have seen were on DVD or video. The movie business is big business.
