My Associated Content review of _The Reader_

Link.

My reviews seem to have an academic slant, in that I avoid films that the critics pan, which allows me to make commentary on the ideas of the film. A different reviewer takes another route, largely summarizing and noting the minor failures of The Reader's narrative. I have difficulty making a simple qualitative judgment, partially because that kind of wording strikes me as so gauche, such as: "Inspiring...you'll laugh, you'll cry," or "The best thing since sliced bread!" or even, "Nicholas Cage burns like tungsten!" The New York Times' book reviewer Michiko Kakutani has taken major heat for this kind of approach.

Fellows, I would appreciate your commentary and/or advice on my reviewing style.
