Reviewing the Reviews

I miss college fairly frequently but not the homework part. That said, if I had Nick of Nick's Flick Picks for an instructor, I'd relish the assignments. I actually requested his syllabus this year so I could play along at home. He's teaching a film criticism history and reviewing course this semester at Northwestern and he's asking blog readers -- that's you -- to comment on the blurbs they wrote. Which of the blurbs they claim are representative of their reviews make you want to rest the rest of their articles? I personally must finish the review of Lady Sings the Blues that compares Billie Holiday to Lindsay Lohan. I must on account of "say what, now?!"
