An opinion is a grand thing. Positive, negative it can be anyone's to have and express in whatever forum they feel appropriate. So, here's mine: I don't really see the point of writing something just to take a shit on someone else's work. Particularly when said shit offers not insightful criticism but rather opinion cloaked as fact. I suppose that's what a review is though: a shallow opinion, formed via a brief brush with a piece of art, written to either big it up or cut it down, but always to make the critic look cool. Well, as Krug would say...this one's for the critics, and their disappointed mothers.
