Indiewire’s weekly poll turns the critics on themselves, asking them to disclose what words they would ban from reviews.  From “epic” to “game-changer” to “Oscar-worthy,” they tell us what terms are overused, under-specific, and just too easy.   I admit to using some of these, and appreciate the reminder, but the fact is that some films are epic and some performances are Oscar-worthy.
