A negative critique - Will be one that just says the whole movie as unscientific (for example). Or says for some other reason that the criticizer believes the movie is awful. They may go on and on and use what they believe are real facts or made up facts to say it is a bad movie.
An argumentative critique - Will be a critique that seems to argue within itself about the good and/or bad of the movie.
I've included an example of a website that will take you to a NYTimes website that has a critique of the movie that does both and more, puts a positive spin on it also. Here is the link to the critique that can be found on NYTimes website : http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/17/movies/17hour.html?_r=0
It isn't necessarily negative, but it is slightly argumentative for a movie critique from a major newspaper. And can be construed as negative and positive if you look at it from all angles.
You can also find negative and argumentative reviews on IMDB.com, you can also find positive reviews there as well.
IMDB is full of reviews by people who know what they are talking about and some by people who have no clue. But some scientists will go on there and rant about movies such as The 11th Hour; just as they did about The Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore. They will point out all of the scientific inconsistencies among other things.
