    I've watched several movies that i really enjoyed only to find out they were dragged thru the mud by the critics. other movies that i found to be just so-so were praised as the next coming of the lord. I think I'm going to just quit reading reviews by the critics. It seems they're all just a bunch of "haters"

    Sometimes I agree, maybe about half the time. They often destroy a silly comedy that I just find hilarious because they are serious all the time. Of course they won't like a low brow comedy if they are serious, but doesn't mean no one will.

    I take all reviews with a grain of salt. There was one guy here that review Batman begins and gave it an F , BUT game stealth a A !

    I think they need to lay off the crack.

    I review movies once in a while.

    I don't read critics until I watched the movie. I respect opinion of the mass more.

    Then again, mass can be so wrong :mamoru:

    Batman is a C+ (ibflames) Stealth is a D-

    Some critics are paid off by studios, or studios wine and dine them so I am a little distrustful.

    And sometimes I find critics are jaded from seeing too many movies or the movie is not a subject they are interested in but they still have to review it. I know I couldn't review "Ice Princess" with out attacking it.

    I watch all the movies that Ebert and Roeper say suck. I've done pretty well so far! :hsd:

    critics are fags that couldn't hack it as directors/actors/producers. so they tear into everybody else for doing what they failed horribly at.

    I agree with them more than I agree with other people's recommendations :dunno: That's still not a lot, but I figure it's the best chance I've got for getting advice from other people.

    Sometimes I fully agree sometimes I dont.
    I have to see the movie and have my own views on it. Cus of course everyone has their own.

    Its not like critics are some big hive mind. There are always both good and bad reviews for movies.

    You can't NEVER agree with them.... they don't agree with each other.

    Pick any movie and it'll have some 50+ reviews on it. I'm sure one of them will have similar views with you.

    Word. Sometimes I just want to go to the movies and laugh and not think. Critics rarely pick up on my demographic in that sense! I do take some reviews seriously for "good" movies, but they crap on movies unnecessarily.

    I think the critics are always wrong. They always say that good movies suck and vice versa.

    I usually hit the spot with my reviews, haven't had any complaints from the movies I have recommended.
