To the editor:
I am writing to you about something that I think should be taken into very careful consideration: kids’ movie reviews! Kids should rate movies geared towards kids, and teenagers should write reviews about movies geared towards teenagers.
I’ve noticed that the adult critics write serious, harsh and bad reviews on great kids’ movies. Most movies geared towards kids and teens are not meant to be taken so seriously. And that’s probably why the critics tend to not like movies as much which are meant for a younger audience.
For instance, about 15 kids (including boys) from my school and I went to see the Hannah Montana movie earlier this year and I think we all loved it (including the boys)! Yet, when I read the capsule review on the movie in the Journal-World the next day, it was given only two or two and a half stars. Strangely enough, in its first week at the box office, this movie made the most money a G-rated movie had ever made.
I don’t think movies geared towards kids and teens are ever given fair reviews. Please consider letting a teenager, preteen, or whomever the movie is geared towards, write the review.
