Blogging and Film Criticism

Raleigh News-Observer film critic Craig Lindsey takes a look at the burgeoning culture of online film criticism, and I get quoted quite a bit. I have to admit that I feel like I come off a bit air-headed in this interview (I actually use the phrase “like wow!” at one point), but Craig’s discussion of the rise of amateur internet film criticism seems about right to me.

Update: On a second read, I think there are a number of good points here.  One of the issues I wanted to emphasize was that bloggers can champion less commercial films while print critics are often obligated to cover the more heavily promoted films.  And like most bloggers, I genuinely embrace the conversational, though reflective, spirit of most film blogs.
