Film and TV reviews are assessments of the aesthetic, entertainment, social and cultural merits and significant of a current film or video. Reviews tend to be short to medium length articles often written by a single staff writer for a particular publication. Although reviews are usually fairly "quick takes" on a movie or show, they can, in some instances, be length, substantive, and very insightful. Reviews written in film and media journals and magazines will likely be more substantial than those written in newspapers because of the intended audience/readership (specialist versus general interest). You can find reviews in different types of resources such as newspaper databases that the library subscribes to, freely available websites, and some print publications. Source: Berkeley.
