Reviews

Reviews are nearly-mystical machinations that directly effect the sale of a specific product or service. Movies, music, and literature are the most widely known reviews available to the general public. But, there are reviews for every product or service available for sale or trade. At the same time, the reviews are dramatically different between the two different fields.

Most products like consumer electronics or automobiles are subject to a select and straightforward battery of tests and analyses. They are largely tested for performance, safety, durability, and government standards for both home and workplace applications. Should I review any consumer products here, I will use similar criteria. On top of that, I will also look at the manufacturers because, like it or not, company image impacts and influences product image and quality.

On the other hand, movies, music, literature, art and other intellectual properties are subject to an infinitely larger battery of tests and analyses. With the exception of "craftsmanship," the arts do not share any other type of test with consumer products. But, they undergo a lot more. Movie critics tend to focus too much on the technical and movie industry aspects of films which is why their reviews tend to be, more often than not, at odds with the movie-going public. At the same time, depending on individual taste, a good review from a literary critic is a sign of a quality product worthy of investment.

I hope you enjoy reading my reviews.
