It’s not up to reviewers - of film, books or anything else -  to represent ‘mainstream’ views. That is not their job.

Oh oh....I hear the brownshirts grinding their axes......

Now I know why The Mekons and The New York Dolls And almost every record I own are so unpopular 

They arn’t mainstream but sure as hell get great reviews

Am I not mainstream 

 Must be all those reviews I read😀

Tbh, I found the movie to be very matter of fact, almost documentary like, so I'm just struggling to see how that reviewer got that feeling in his review, I know there was a grumble by some including trump, that the movie didn't show the flag planting ?

It was an ironic reply to a previous post about DELUDED critics. (Caps not mine) 

I like intelligent writing on books, film, music etc.  Thoughtful, informed, considered reviews can add a lot to your experience of art.

i haven’t seen this one yet.

I know

i agree

Not a great movie but watchable

i think the review quoted was silly but I understand they didn’t show the US flag being placed on the moon which was odd but the director claims it wasn’t done for political reasons

I only buy records since the first part of the 70’s Because of reviews but do watch movies even if they get mediocre reviews although I will go out of my way to see movies with great reviews but in both cases 

 depends on the story line or subject matter
