Odyssey Template: Review A Product You Love

There are few things less satisfying than giving someone a product recommendation only to find out they actually took the recommendation and love it just as much as you told them they would. There exists a great sense of gratification in knowing someone valued your opinion enough to go out and make a purchase based on it.

We all have those products we love so much, we'll recommend them to anyone who will listen — whether it be the acne-clearing face mask you swear by, the comfy pair of leggings you've worn ten days in a row, your go-to cast iron pan, or the newly-released Halo Top flavor you buy Whole Foods out of every chance you get.

Now's your chance to shout your love for your favorite products from the (Odyssey) rooftops.

How To:

Here's where you come in! We want you and/or your friend(s) to create your very own product review on Odyssey using the template we created below. Remember: don't take it too seriously! Have fun with it and put your personality into it.

Then, follow these steps:

  1. COPY the text in between the begin and end template sections below
  2. PASTE it into a new post in Odyssey's CORE
  3. Fill it all in and add photos. Don't forget to remove the example we've provided in the template.
  4. Submit under Community: Lifestyle for a chance to be featured on Odyssey's Facebook and Instagram.
  5. Don't have an account? CREATE ONE.

Give us the bottom line.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind.
