The release of "Scream 4" may not have been a landmark in terms of film, but it may prove to be an important moment in the history of film criticism, as it was the first review released by Tommy Edison, the Blind Film Critic.
With only five reviews under his belt, Edison is poised to become an internet sensation, not just because of the novelty of what he's doing, but because his reviews actually provide a wholly unique perspective on movies.
His most recent review of 'Thor' is both insightful and funny: "Wow, 'Thor:3D,' something tell's me this movie wasn't made for blind people."
So how does a blind guy review a summer blockbuster? By using the same criteria he uses for all movies: story and character development. So how did "Thor" do? Better than you'd think, but probably not as well as something like "Wonder Boys" might have.
Check out Edison's review of "Thor" below and tell us what other movies you'd like to see him review in the comments.
