Reviewers and critics CRITICIZE. They are incentivized to do so and looked at as stupid, gullible, soft or uncultured if they don’t. Therefore they are always too critical as that is how they are rewarded. They do not represent the average person’s opinion or tastes which is why they will never be accurate nor valuable. They also suffer from an acute state of subconsciously feeling blasé from being overly inundated by which they are judging. That which we consume for enjoyment they experience as work. That is my critique of critics😏


Here is another take on it via my favorite quote:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt”
