I wonder if anyone can provide some insight into film critics. How does one get the job and sitting around and picking at other people's work? Why are Siskel and Ebert such experts? Ok, maybe they went to some film school or something, but it is all so subjective. After all the wit and pseudo-intellectualism of a review, in the end, you're getting what some guy thinks. Honestly, I see no reason to hold Ebert's opinion above anyone in this forum. Yet these critics hold so much power in the industry. They could make or break a film. That just doesn't seem right. Can someone please explain to me how these people get these positions?
