Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Once he realizes the films are causing the disasters, he uses his authority as a critic to convince the aliens to stop and rethink things.

Con: The story is marred by a series of infodumps. Unusually, these are info dumps about the characters, not about the technology, but they’re just as intrusive, and they make the story unpleasant to read.
