A Ramble About Critics

Critics are everywhere. We all have an opinion but some share it loudly and perpetually they hate everything. TV, Music, Stage, Movies, Art, Food all have people who think they know what is good and you know they don’t know everything. People who find faults in everything seem to have an agenda. Maybe critics should realize how hard people work on something and hope its well received by everyone. Perhaps they think they can do something better. Critics can influence but their views don’t always mean something is of quality or not. Ultimately the greatest critic can be how well something does commercially and if the public likes it or not. Money can change everyone’s mind.

  1. I think it is worth noting that there is skill involved in offering criticism as in many other arts.
    Finding faults has value (I worked as a Software Quality Engineer, so I know!) Pointing them out can be done constructively, or it can be as mean and wicked as pure gossip.
    I think I’d say a skillful critic is one who brings out something better in the person or thing which has been criticized.
