Hi! Welcome to the research guide created for Professor Drummond's Spring 2021 ENGL 2000 class. This guide will help you find film and/or TV reviews. Each tab on the left tells you what type of sources are included:
The "Websites" tab includes reviews from selected internet sources. These are *not* scholarly sources!
The "Newspapers & Magazines" tab includes a selection of suggested newspapers, magazines, and news databases that you could search to find reviews. These are also *not* scholarly sources.
The "Scholarly Sources: Academic Journals and Databases" has, you guessed it!, scholarly academic journals that you can search within or try your hand at searching the larger databases to find scholarly peer-reviewed articles about the movie or TV show that you're interested in.
And remember: "When you talk about a TV show with your friends, write a literary essay for your English class, rate a video game online, or try to persuade your parents to choose your favorite restaurant for dinner, you’re doing the key things critics do: describing your point of view on a creative or cultural experience, and justifying it." (Katherine Schulten, "Expressing Critical Opinions: Two Movie Reviews," NYTimes, November 6, 2019, https://nyti.ms/2NqliXL)
