A Film Critic’s Opinion Is Important

Reviews aim to act as a skilled means of providing criticism on the best films in the world

If an actor does not read reviews of their films, then it begs the question that how does that actor get ahead with scoring one film project after another in the first place? A review aims to highlight both the positive and the negative aspects of an actor’s performance in each of the film that he or she stars in. If an actor completely disregards film critics and the reviews they write, then clearly this idea gets portrayed that their opinion doesn’t count in influencing an actor’s career. But then what does? Can an actor just keep doing one film after another and never get written-off, even though their work is always really bad? That sounds like one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world ever.

An actor can certainly take a film critic’s comment and disagree with it, but it isn’t possible to disregard it. At the end of the day, a film critic most definitely knows what he or she is doing because they are skilled in the art of criticizing. What an actor should do is aim to please film critics instead – this scenario is a little bit like an actor wanting to impress the audience of their film, who are always on the lookout for a great film. An actor can do this by taking those important opinions by film critics on their work, as points to work on the next time that an actor is choosing their upcoming film project, with plenty of enthusiasm – in my opinion, that is the only way how great films truly happen.

Picture-Perfect Creativity

Creative people, who are actors, portray this brilliant character on-screen and don’t like to reveal themselves publicly in that way – is that even real?

Do actors ever identify with the characters they play on-screen? It is a tough question to figure out the answer to. The most brilliant stories in the world sometimes come from those which are portrayed on-screen – it is where fiction seems to almost surpass fact. But no matter the genre of film-making, it is also true that fiction which is disenfranchised from reality seems really hard to connect with. It often leads me to think that maybe the actors who play these great characters in those brilliant films might have a shade of that personality themselves too, or if they are that type of actor who must only portray an entirely different person on-screen from the kind that they are themselves then maybe the character is instead more like one of his or her contemporaries instead. It doesn’t seem very difficult to imagine that at all: Kristen Dunst, in fact, once stated that her character in Bring It On (2000) is actually in the likeness of herself from high school; it was certainly a refreshing attitude to have and one that made her seem really human because on most days creative people seem to have a mantra in life that is on an entirely different level from mine – they actually publicly like to be somebody else quite a lot.
