Building a Better Critic: 10 Rules to be the Best Geek You Can Be

Building a Better Critic: 10 Rules to be the Best Geek You Can Be

Article by: Witney Seibold

A colleague of mine on recently wrote an article on how badly the modern internet denizen behaves. He accused young geeks of lambasting Zack Snyder’s recent action film “Sucker Punch” too harshly, even though it was replete with every last accoutrement of the sub-culture. His article was rife with a wrathful vitriol, and he did stand in angry accusation of his readers, but I did agree with his basic point: That geek teens have become a sarcastic lot of bullies.


Rather than taking the accusatory path, I figured I would write a rulebook of positive reinforcement. This is not just a list of rules for geeks, but can stand for most of the smug internet generation, and should perhaps be looked over by any aspiring film critics. This is, by no means, a list of commandments, but can stand, I think, as some good suggestions.
