Heard an album or seen a movie recently that you loved so much that you couldn't stop talking about it? Try looking it up on Metacritic and reading all its reviews, good and bad. Metacritic archives the columns of people like Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times, Anthony Lane of the New Yorker and, yes, even national treasure Richard Corliss of TIME. A good, professionally written review shines a ray of light onto the mystery of great art, but reading a dozen in one gulp? Positively illuminating!
