You are right, he isn't impartial. He is biased towards good films and against bad films.

Hmmm, maybe you need to be currently subscribed ? Do you have an account with audible ?
He creeps me out

Lots more shows are showing as free for me on here too, just adding them to my account in case they vanish later!!

Seems like a great idea, like podcasts but higher quality perhaps.
Like old radio shows/specials.
Not free at all
Nice to see his MK3D shows being released in some form, although this is not free for me - says it'll cost a credit.
You need to have a credit for them to show as free. It doesn’t use the credit, though.
Pretentious......moi?
I think these are free to subscription holders but I don't think you need credit. I downloaded Stephen Fry's one on the English language and Sue Perkins Zoopaedia for free a while back and I had no credit as I was on a suspended membership break.
Face for radio.
His views on film are simple

If it contains an explosion,its not worth watching
If it isn't artsy cr@p its not worth watching

Can't stand this bloke and i don't understand why he is a critic as he isn't impartial at all, he only likes stuff like gone with the wind
Heat from me.

I like art house films but I do feel critics can get it wrong plenty of times - it's very much about personal taste and opinion.
Ones tastes may not match that of the critic.

It can help to find a critic with similar taste I think, but I haven't done so.

The one time I used an Empire review as the basis for going to watch a film (they gave The Descent 5 stars) I was deeply annoyed.

Aggregators can help.

But yeah, it's more for the commentary.

I'm not sure I'd use one person's views as a basis for deciding a film to watch - especially if you don't know if their tastes match.

I listened to his podcast quite a bit at one point.

One issue I take is he never seems to have any interest is reading the novel of an adaptation.

Sure, the film should stand up on its own merit - but a lot of people watching it will have read the book first - or intentionally read the book before seeing the film (as I did with Cloud Atlas for example).

So yeah, he doesn't bother to read the novel which can make a big difference.

He slates Transformers which I totally agree with.

He gave Baby Driver 5/5


Not seen it but imagine that has at least one explosion in it.
Mark Kermode is a muppet so have to vote cold.

You should have seen his review of The Last Jedi - he actually thought it was good!!
I liked it lol.

And this isn't just for Kermode.

And it's free.

So good heads up, cheers OP.

Harsh voting it cold.
Voted hot. In all the years I have been listening to the church of wittitainment I think I have disagreed with only a handful of his reviews. The review of Independence Day resurgence with one word spoke volumes, meh.
Everyone’s tastes are different and of course a review is subjective but in general his reviews are well thought out, backed by evidence and fair. Btw I loved the Last Jedi, complete departure from the previous 7 and whilst that left some fans out of their comfort zones the story and setup for episode 9 and beyond was worth it.(*caution, low flying princesses may reduce your viewing pleasure) Ending reminded me of the last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
