Unseen publications act

Primary research is overrated, in journalism and in general. Unseen Movies provides strong evidence for this: it’s a selection of movie reviews, written by someone who hasn’t seen any of the relevant movies.

As far as I can make out, there is no way in which any observer, no matter how well-informed, could tell the difference between these reviews and genuine press movie criticism.

If I’d’ve thought of it before now, I’d’ve reviewed the site before actually reading any of the reviews. Damn, I hate missing opportunities for cheap gags… (via Nosemonkey)

One thought on “Unseen publications act

  1. *ahem* They actually ARE genuine press movie criticism… I probably shouldn’t say much more lest I get fired though. At some point I may start putting up some of the book reviews I’ve done without reading the books as well…
