LittleMzFit 6 years I'm kind of selfish about my movie time. I wouldn't want to ruin my simple enjoyment of a movie by having to take time and thought out to evaluate it. I am an over-analyzer by nature & my movie time is recreation and gets my mind off other things. I'd rather analyze food! :feedme: eveday 6 years Movie critic. Nothing entertains me more than going to the theater (or watching DVDs). I'm not *that* picky when it comes to food but when I hear "food critic" I immediately think about weight gain. Also, I've been a vegetarian since last year and not eating any meat pretty much limits my options. ilanac13 6 years i'd rather be a movie critic. my issue is that i'm a vegetarian so that really limits the foods that i could try and i can't believe that there are TOO many critics that can't eat just about anything... on the other hand though - i love going to the movies and i go to see just about everyone that comes out. simplyfab87 6 years Food critic! I'm bored by most critically acclaimed films and I love stupid comedies. Plus, getting paid to eat would be awesome. GlowingMoon 6 years Movie critic. I do this anyways (non-professionally), so it would be nice to be paid for it. :) luvluvg 6 years Food critic. I enjoy eating and trying variations of recipes, and I could paint pictures of beauty or disgust as well as any of them do with their reviews! elle-j 6 years um, both. But if I had to just choose one, it would be food. cherryblossom 6 years movie critic because SOMEONE needs to come right out and say it. The MAJORITY not ALL but the majority of movies that have come out in the last few years are complete peices of crap for stories with a lot of cinematic value that entertains the people but not a whole crap ton of rewatch value like movies of the past. leeluvfashion 6 years Should add that I can be a major foodie; except I would never eat red meat, pork, such & such... Cake & various curry meals; oh my! leeluvfashion 6 years Movie Critic. I may not be the best reviewer however it would equal less weight gain (for me.) ;) :P Kimpossible 6 years I'm too easily entertained with movies to be a good critic, I'd like just about anything I watched. Food on the other hand, I think I could be a good critic for, I have a very discerning palate. nygurl 6 years foooood! wackdoodle 6 years Movie critic - I did it briefly. I loved it. Only I strictly reviewed the film and declined to interview or meet the filmmakers or actors. I didn't want them trying to win me over. Crap films were still crap films even if the actors are sweet and/or handsome. sweetpeabrina 6 years Food critic. With the metabolism of a bird. :) jennjennnbubba 6 years Food probably. I tend to like offbeat movies or movies that others just don't get. Spectra 6 years Both of them sound like fun jobs, but I think I'd rather be a movie critic. If you're a food critic, you have to eat strange things sometimes. I tend to be sort of picky about what I eat, so I would be a bit hesitant to try some of the stuff they have in some restaurants. However, my husband and I love to watch movies and point out what makes them good or stupid or funny or weird, so I think I'd really like to be a movie critic. CoconutPie 6 years Food critic, without any hesitation. mandaleebee 6 years I'd love to do either! But if I have to pick I'd have to say food critic, mainly because I don't like watching Horror movies, and I'd probably have to if I were a movie critic :) hyzenthlay20 6 years I don't watch many movies, but I LOOOVE food! Renees3 6 years i love food, but I'm picky with certain things so I don't think I'd be a very good food critic. but I'm obsessed with movies, so I might do ok there! UrbanBohemian 6 years Both sound awesome! I love movies and I love food, and I think I would be a fair and impartial critic.
