If you spot any of these phrases in a movie review, you've got yourself a movie blurb whore. Don't listen to anything he or she says. Dismiss them immediately. Check for computer chips inside their brain. Using these phrases does not constitute analysis; it's stealing from movie posters in order to appear on another movie poster. It's rearranging platitudes. It's lazy critic shorthand for, "Please Put My Name on your DVD Box."
