What is the role of a critic? I’m never entirely sure. The easy and glib answer is to say that critics review art/entertainment/literature etc. and judge the merits of services on behalf of the reader/viewer/ordinary person. But of course, it never is that simple. People who review art, for example, judge the work by a higher standard than mass popularity.
