Community Question: What Do You Look For In A Reviewer?
This is a question I've been wanting to pose to you, the Instagram film community, for quite some time. We all have specific reviewers that we, for the most part, trust in their opinion. Whether it be due to way they deliver their opinion, or actually the fact that most of their verdicts match yours. But what specifically do you find in a reviewer that makes you trust them or want to read on? There are a whole bunch of elements. Humour? Factual information? Spelling and grammar? Brutal honesty? Concise writing so that you aren't spending days reading one review? For me, I like a reviewer that doesn't heavily rely on facts. Y'know, the excessively pointless facts that seem far too pretentious. "Ahh yes, Nolan conceived the idea of 'Batman Begins' whilst listening to "Love Shack" with Christian Bale on February 7th 2004!". Facts are only necessary to further illustrate your opinion, not to prolong a review with trivia. I also like humour, very much so. I have a dark sense of humour, so if a reviewer can succinctly inject wicked laughs whilst conveying their opinion, they'll have me instantly hooked. And, I respect honesty. I cannot overstate how irritating it is to see people falsify their ratings just because they don't want people to dislike them as a person. It's your opinion! Think 'The Departed' is overrated? Say it. Don't give it full marks just because the vast majority do. An opinion is a powerful tool that should be used with, ready yourselves, great responsibility.
So what do you specifically look for in a reviewer? I'll be most fascinated to here your thoughts so do let me know below!
“After all this time...”
Usually for this challenge we don’t post a caption but I’m breaking the rules this time for Harry Potter.
This is my favorite Movie series of all time. It has really become part of my life and I always have so much to say about it.
I chose certain photos that really stood out from the films. And certain characters that touched my heart. Sirius Black. His torture scene from Voldemort. And especially his Death scene. That was major waterworks for me. And I’ll never get over it..He’s my ultimate favorite character in the films. Severus Snape. So many moments with him have came to mind. The way he loves Lily and would do anything to protect her. She was his light and it broke my heart when he held her in Harry’s room and just cried. Then when he died and looked at Harry and saw Lily’s eyes...that hurt so much but I’ll always love Snape and his bravery. He was and incredible character.
Draco. The most underrated character in the whole series. He was so scared and honestly, so innocent and my heart went with him. He didn’t want what was thrown at him. And the scene where he couldn’t kill Dumbledore, that was a tearjerker.
Dumbledore and Voldemort’s fight scene was beautifully done and is one of my favorites. And of course the tale of the 3 men. That stands out so much to me.
I could watch these movies all the time and they never get old. Bless Harry Potter 🔮
Call Me by Your Name (2017) I had heard a lot of hype around this movie and most of it was excitement about the LGBTQ+ centered storyline. While the movie is extremely well written and shot in beautiful locations, it felt to me a very recycled plot. It wasn’t the age gap that bothered me the most, I couldn't help but feel as though I was watching a European version of Brokeback Mountain. The angst and sexual tension are really gut-wrenching and almost hard to watch with how physical it gets. It is by no means a purely romantic story, it is a heavy and thought-provoking piece that made me cry and reconsider some of my decisions in the past. Again the cast is amazing, I will commend the wonderfully handsome Armie Hammer as Oliver, and Timothee Chamalet’s Elio. For me, the show was stolen by an actor who has played small parts in two other movies I've written about (The Shape of Water and Arrival) his name is Michael Stuhlbarg, he plays Elio’s father. In just a few pivotal scenes his character has such depth and a history that really made me feel engrossed and curious about his purpose and hand in everything that goes down. I would recommend this movie to someone who likes to witness a heartache and a total coming of age story centered around sexuality and the developing of teen emotions. I would also like to heed a warning to anyone who is sensitive to r*pe and sexual assault as this movies tones are extremely angry and almost forced acts in a fairly uneasy way. 7/10
