    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFIn a continually annoying longwinded blokey jokey sickeningly ingratiating manner Mark Kermode makes a few interesting observations These have to be uarried out of the endless self congratulatory froth that is your standard Kermode paragraph I was interested in the followingCRITICS WHY DO THEY EXIST? Answer because you know that their opinions and comments have not been invented by a studio publicity team unlike the random or IMDB or Twitter one liner you may have seen MK knows as do we all that online “amateur” reviews can be gamed So critics are honest Well yes but does that make them useful? All the film critics in the world were raving about I Daniel Blake A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night and A Pigeon Sat on a Branch to mention three recent films and each one was terrible in my little opinion And then again if it wasn’t for critics I would not have seen Beyond the Hills

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFI've already read both of Mark Kermode's previous books on cinema and the contents thereof so I am definitely the target audience for this book Sure enough I enjoyed it although I suspect it was of an appendix to the previous books rather than a great standalone in itselfI like Kermode's writingranting style being a listener to the Five Live film podcast and all and this definitely supplies plenty of that There are also some interesting insights into the admittedly somewhat niche world of the film critic It doesn't have the firm narrative structure or thesis of his previous books but there are entertaining anecdote

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFKermode is back again and this time he's defending his profession and job Hatchet Job is Mark Kermode writing about film criticism in an age when everyone can create a blog and express their opinions to the world on the internet Also exploring the uestions of why people should even bother listening to critics and why movie studios pulling tweets for movie posters is less reliable than someone who has been paid for their review and had their work run past an editor Often citing Roger Ebert as the benchmark for criticism he goes into past instances when critics have got it very wrong about movies and very right only for the film to tank at the box officeBut rather than be against the rise of online reviews and blogging he actually defends and says when it's done well they're as valued to the world of critiuing and cinema as some who's a 'professional' He's trying to embrace the future rather than fight itIt

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFI can't uite put my finger on exactly why I didn't enjoy this book as much as Kermode's previous books about movies Maybe it is simply that he has already used so many of his best anecdotes in his previous books Or maybe it's just that I'm not as interested in what he a film critic has to say about film criticism as I am in what he has to say about filmsAnd it probably doesn't help that I've heard many of the best lines in the book before The one sentence hatchet job review of The Straight Story which I liked as 'Forrest Gump on a tractor' or Manneuin “by for and about dummies” or Knowing “You're better off not” Some of his pet grumbles such as people reviewing films that they haven't actually seen apparently not so unusual as you might thi

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFHis first book was about all the mad stories he experienced in his life as a movie reviewer his second one was about the sorry state that mainstream cinema or less is in these days and since both of these things are pretty much the topics he loves to talk about the most there's actually not that much left for him in his third book But here it is anyway and its topic is about movie reviewing What it used to be like how it's happening today and what it might evolve into Or somethingOf course there are some very interesting bits and chapters about Roger Ebert reviews test screenings and bloggers But Mark Kermode is Mark Kermode so very soon he will go off into tangents so far off the original topic that you wonder how the hell he even got there He can't even tell the story about his encounter with a furious director straight without interrupting it with a very lengthy detour about his love for Shock Treatment That seuel to Rocky Horror that almo

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDF‘Hatchet Job’ contains Kermode’s hilarious and digressive meditations on film criticism as it was and as it is now The chapters proceed in a rambling form structured through lengthy and artfully articulated anecdotes At the outset Kermode comments that his best known and most popular reviews are deeply negative ones This accords with my tendency to seek out his views on anything made by Michael Bay Moreover my favourite review of his has to be the magnificent rant about Sex and the City 2 in which he sings the Internationale I’ve previously read his book The Good the Bad and the Multiplex What's Wrong with Modern Movies? which criti

    Hatchet Job ePUB ½ ¹ PDF s2baby.co hatchet epub, Hatchet Job PDFI have raised this from 3 stars to 4 on the simple basis that the book maintains its focus and stays interesting throughout That may be an odd thing to say but whilst I was enjoying the first few Chapters I was thinking 'How is this book going to avoid just padding or repeating itself how much can he actually write about being a film critic?'; but to his credit the book remains repetition free and engaging right to the end linking up arguments and concepts as it goes along whilst remaining utterly readable which it should be he's a professional writer Kermode may be a 'marmite' figure and this won't help change anyone's opinion on that but I like the fact he is uite happy to accept this highlight times when he may have courted controversy but always remained true to his opinions The final chapter when he subseuently revisits a film
