Quackcast 340 - Reviews

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Sept. 19, 2017


In this Drunk Duck Quackcast we chat about the importance and the process of reviews! Good ones, bad ones, why they all matter, and also why they often don't! ;)
Reviews are an interesting animal, they're a parasitic form of entertainment. They rely wholly of other forms of entertainment for their existence, while those forms do not require reviews at all! But reviews also serve a good function, they tell us what's bad or good, what fits with our tastes and emotions, and lets us know what we may be interested in seeing. They can also save us from wasting time on horrors. Sometimes though they can drive us away from something magical… Here we discuss all that and more!

Gunwallace's theme this week was for Reversion, This is a really dreamy, evocative tune about warm, faraway places, it’s squinting into the distance down a long dusty deserted highway and sighing.

I like to read them about new films, and sometimes even much older ones. It can be interesting to know how people thought about a film or a book at the time it was released.

Interesting. I use to listen to reviews a lot and then one day i just stopped. I think it was because I didn't agree with some of the latest critics out now. Sometimes i like the Blue movie type stuff or cheesy man comedy, even nerd out on like any Space type stuff. Experiencing things is the best critic for one self.

And you remember when the Critic was my avatar? It Stinks! It stinks!

But some stuff really does suck and the creators really ought to be freaking told! It's a service to humanity! Save the poor fools who would otherwise read such absolute garbage!!
