I ask you, the reader, what are you looking for in a review of a film you might be considering on attending this weekend or any other day for that matter. You might even be deadlocked on a certain new release but teetering back on forth on an imaginary line trying to decide whether or not to spend the $9.50, $12.50 if it's in 3-D which everything seems to be nowadays, per person on a Hollywood production that might not even be worth it.
I used to be there, still am sometimes, quite hesitant about spending my hard earned pay on a movie I might not like. If you have a family, kids and all, then a trip to the cinema can run you close to what two tanks of gas might cost, sometimes more. Even if you're just taking your sweetheart out on a date, you might be on a budget or maybe it's a first date and you don't know whether or not this person is worth spending that kind of dough on for one night. That might sound a little harsh but a lot of people feel this way.
I'm not asking for you to do my work for me, oh no, I would never ask that. Then I would have no purpose in life. I just want to know what you want to know. Cuz when it comes down to it I am, believe it or not like you, a reader.
