I know this is unasked for advice, but I still want to offer my two cents here. Comparing this post, and the one you made about scifi from last week, to your review of 1917 on the recs and plugs thread, I notice that you have a tendency to be entirely positive about something you like, while being entirely negative about something you dislike. When reviewing something, we generally give both positive and negative points about it. To arrogantly use examples of my own creation, I enjoyed the Daredevil series on Netflix, but I had plenty of complaints about its use of fake gore and its over-reliance on ninjas. On the other side of the coin, I did not enjoy Fifty Shades of Grey, but I still brought up the two characters that I thought were well-written. Especially Taylor. Thank you, Taylor.

Giving both positive and negative points about something when we review gives other people more points to chime in on and have a discussion about it. Try that next time?
