Film Journalists and Movie Critics

~ 100 buzzes
Film critics working for newspapers, magazines, broadcast media, and online publications, mainly review new releases, although some reviewers include reviews of older "classic" films.

The plot summary and description of a film that makes up the majority of the review can have an impact on whether readers or listeners decide to see a film.

    A warm welcome to @Susan Botello. She writes that she expresses her passion for storytelling through film and video. Regardless of the media, as the title of my Hive suggests, Only Humans Tell Stories. https://www.bebee.com/group/only-humans.

    #42 @Susan Botello sage huh; isn't it cool how you can taste the flowers that they "specialize in"... It's easy to take stuff like that for granted; but the enormity of the enterprise that results in wildflower honey looking and tasting a bit different from orange blossom, etc. is fascinating; like tasting their work!

    It's important to remember that Finding Dory is in itself - her story within the universe that Disney created, the nature of which will of been personalised to her so must be viewed away from the previous film they same way that each individual avengers film must be allowed to breathe without the group films. I'm really excited for Finding Dory, Disney have a ridiculous team of dedicated thinkers behind them.

    I love Ellen Degeneres her show is my favorite and it will be the best to see Dory with her voice! I also read somewhere that Finding Dory will truly be all about her and not that much related with Nemo and his father, even though they're going to appear on the movie. I think that Disney is evolving so much with its stories. Great share @Dave Parfitt

    Absolutely agree with you @Dave Parfitt!! "Finding Nemo" has, in my humble opinion, one of the most perfect scripts in cinema history. A round script. The premiere in Spain for "Finding Dory" is next wednesday 22. Looking forward to it!!

    Creepy stories. The worst, about the cave dwellers. I almost vomited when I read how they died. But, then again, they ate people! The man who died during a nightmare in Cambodia- it makes me wonder if he didn't die from sleep deprivation and caffeine overdose? At any rate, I can see how these bring to the imagination a good horror story or more!

    A nice review @Nick Mlatchkov, I think allot of people are too hesitant to share their views on cultural topics like art, cinema and music in fear of being put down by their peers so I always find it inspiring to see people openly sharing reviews they have penned!. I watched this film some time earlier this year and alas, for me, it came up a little short. Visually it's stunning and I agree the score is rather breathtaking. Toby Jones is one of my favourite actors because even if you don't know Toby Jones, you know Toby Jones. Sadly, for me there was just something lacking in the way of narrative immersion and speed, maybe it is the way the film has been edited? Maybe the budget ran dry? Who knows. .But it didn't grip me the same way other contemporary fantasy has, for example - the works of Del Toro (The Devils Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth etc) or as you very rightfully pointed out the 70's/80's fantasy treasures such as Gilliam's Time Bandits or Jim Henson's Labirynth (Bowie as a goblin king? You can;t beat that!). Maybe I need to give it a second chance though. Thanks for sharing your review, I look forward to the next!

    This movie covers so much in our existence that it has been exploited for so much things. It is impressive, it's been long since the release (1999) and the topic and all subjects it involves are still current matters. I like how KIA used it to promote this car and the humor on the commercial.

    According to theory, @Teresa Gezze, the cholerics are the control freaks, Perhaps she is really a choleric melancholic? After all, very few of us exhibit only one personality type, and I'm sure we must change over the years. I know that I certainly have. Try bringing up the subject of the four basic personality types at your next gathering of friends or dinner party. It may rattle a few cages. 🤗 😒 🤓 😇 #24

    I'm glad you like the buzz, @Ali Anani. 😀 I understand, from additional discussion yesterday, that Modern Family is now being used quite generally by psychologists to demonstrate the Four Human Temperaments of Hippocrates. And I thought I had found something quite unique on the workshop I attended. ☹️ Nevertheless, unique or common, there is still much value in using a popular sitcom like this to demonstrate and to facilitate retention, don't you think? 👍#18

    You certainly can find your personality profile, @Lisa Gallagher, by easily picking your way through a series of word choices. I checked mine again recently, using my old copy of Florence Littauer's book, which has been republished many times and should be readily available through Amazon, etc. Perhaps you may be able to find some similar assessment procedures on line? Once you know your dominant type (or types), that's when the fun starts. Good luck! 😀 #15

Sometimes I want to shake Phil and tell him to stop being such a wuss ( I know, I know.. it's just a show). Interesting personality traits I've never heard of. I wonder if it's possible to be objective of ourselves and guess which one we might be? Maybe we can be a mix of two? Thanks for sharing this @Ken Boddie!
