This entry is about the site Metacritic. Metacritic is a review site that reviews the latest movies, tv shows, video games, etc. The way Metacritic is different from most other review websites, however, is that they combine other internet and/or magazine reviews of the subject matter and then calculate an overall average score. The score is colorcoded as follows:
  • Green: For positive scores or universal acclaim
  • Yellow: for mixed(neutral) reviews
  • Red: Negative scores or universal derision
This type of reviewing system can be very useful in telling the average internet goer what movies, video games, etc. can be good to buy or at least rent. I also like Metacritic because of its review system. However, it's not entirely original. There are sites like Rotten Tomatoes that use a similar review system. I may do a blog on that site after this one.
