artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

evening clickbait: the debut of the “exclusive review”; the worst way to celebrate Doctor Who; Citizen Lego

• Excuse me and WTF. From a studio press release: “Exclusive Review Now Live on Huffington Post.” I am not linking to #HuffPOS. But I can exclusively reveal that that “exclusive review” is positively glowing. It’s also by the publisher of a restaurant newsletter.

You know who deserves “exclusive reviews” like that? People who don’t want to support independent film criticism.

That #HuffPOS “reviewer” is also a film producer and a member of the Academy. So no possible conflict there at all. #FuckThisShit

• This sounds awful. Can’t imagine a worse way to celebrate Doctor Who. “Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty Coming to BBC Three” [Kasterborous]

• I love this:

Citizen Lego

    Surely “exclusive review” is just another way of saying “not screened for critics”?

    that DW “afterparty” sounds exactly like the whole big “Reveal” of the next Doctor which was just terrible.. full of so-called “fans”… and thirty minutes of cheesey torture….
