Reviews of books, films, TV shows, albums, and other entertainment are published in a variety of outlets, including journals, magazines, newspapers, websites, and blogs.
The reference format for a review should be the same as the format for the type of content appearing within that source, with the addition of information about the item being reviewed in square brackets after the review title.
Within square brackets, write "Review of the" and then the type of work being reviewed (e.g., film, book, TV series episode, video game); its title; and its author or editor, director, writer, and so forth, with a designation of role for all except regular authors of books.
See pp. 334-335 of the manual for more information.
