In response to Andy Lea’s 319‑word review of I Give It a Year on Daily Star

Where to even begin with Andy Lea’s “I Give It a Year (15) review and trailer”? I don’t think he really knew the answer to this question either.

The review is extremely poorly executed. The opening sentence appears to the continuation of some unwritten thought. That is, until one realizes that the subtitle is actually Lea’s opening line. I had to read this a few times to catch this fact and even then, this review just wasn’t able to keep my attention.

Couple this with the fact that Lea’s review lacks any sense of cohesion and you have a recipe for disaster. There are no lead ins, no outros, no segways. This review has one of the worst editing jobs in recent memory. The editing here is so lazy that each sentence doubles as its own paragraph.

What Lea has created is merely a collection of random thoughts, a series of words jotted down with no clear purpose or reason. Lea’s effort is rather misguided so be prepared to ask for directions along the way. Better yet, save yourself the aggravation and select a review from a critic who has the ability to handle the rigors of writing a quality review. Andy Lea obviously isn’t there yet.
