Introduction

but what is Ecleticist?

Overview

Everybody's a critic. In essence, review is criticism which is judgement. We all do it and we all commonly listen to the criticism by others. In our day to day lives we develop opinions and judge the merits and demerits of virtually everything with the intention of basic discrimination. In this show, we will talk about criticism in the celebrity sense as used by those in the trade, we're criticising professional critics, their motivations, values, weaknesses and utility.
