"I yearn for that kind of a backpacking trip minus the bears." "I was much the happy to know this man was tremendously eaten ferociously by the grizzly bear." "Not bad but not enough black chicks."
The work of these online reviewers may not merit their own special edition
, but they're special in their own way. Doc Savage reviews 200+ items on Amazon, most of which he hates, unless they involve black women and/or Carly Simon
. At Netflix, HV from Duvall
is not nearly as prolific, but gets 5 stars for sublimely anfractuous English. And DJAkin
over at IMDB has written nearly 500 reviews, although most of them read like Jackie Harvey
's Mad Libs. He (or she) may not be the next A. O. Scott
, but if you can find me a critic with a more sincere and unsnarked love of cinema, I'll eat my britches.
