Fanboy Fix, Weekend Chatter, The Avengers
I never listen to critics because it take zero talent to be one and there is a endless supply of them .and anybody can post a review right after the movie so. if they are looking for a b-title 1930s french movie with subs wi wi.. they should not be at a avengers flick.i will be seeing this movie regardless.maybe even twice.
Some of my faviorte movies have been criically panned, ie Joe Dirt. There have also been movies that have gotten great reviews that I have not cared for. If there is a movie out that I want to see I will see it regardless of the reviews. I wish I would have listened to them before going to see Silent House.
I read a few reviews and sometimes make a decision based on those reviews. It really depends on the movie. Some I don't really care what the reviews say, I just want to go and be entertained. I mostly go to movies if they are going to be big and loud, worth paying the money because the effects are cool. If it's something that will show just fine on my flat screen at home, then I don't bother going to the theater.
To me it really doesnt matter about what the audience says about a movie rather if it is good or bad. My point is your opinion about something is your opinion.
Professional critics should be shot on sight. Until someone can clone my mind and put it (along with all of my likes and dislikes) into another person, I avoid critics' opinions like the plague.
Imagine being an adult and making your living watching movies? How pathetic! On top of that, being a professional critic means that you have the audacity to think that your entirely subjective opinion is "right" or somehow superior to the average moviegoer.
When it comes to horror, Sci Fi and fantasy movies, the average critic does not know his *** from his elbow. I've seen 1000s of movies and if I had listened to the critics, I wouldn't have seen hundreds of great movies. (Go check out the trashing of the original Terminator movie by the 1984 critics to see what I mean.)
Also I never let critics sway what I see, yes maybe a horrible review might make me rethink seeing it opening night in favor for my second choice, but I will still see it and when it comes to blockbusters and superhero films there will always be some old bitter old woman who has no idea whats going on and will hate it.
The reviews are making the movie sound amazing, if anyone's interested I found someone who did a spoiler free review -because I wanted to know about the film, but not a play by play- [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
OK apparently I can't put the Link so the review is on a website Called Its Just Movies and its under Reviews, check it out
reviews don't affect me, the only thing that does is when everyone I know says it's a really bad movie.
Excellent comments so far. Thanks for the feedback! Keep them coming.
I usually completely ignore reviewers/critics until after I've watched a movie, if I even check at that point. In my opinion, "critics" have this horrible disconnect, where anything that is obviously gunning for an Oscar for Best Director/Screenplay/Actor-Actress is a good movie, and anything going for an Oscar for Best Visual Effects/Best Summer Action movie, or anything that's not even trying to win an award is a bad movie. These critics can shove their overblown sense of self worth up their own @$$. Reviewers at least seem to be able to give a movie its dues when it's enjoyable. I prefer to gauge movies by customer/reader reviews, to see if they were expecting to enjoy it (their kind of movie) or not. People being paid can't be trusted.
love to hear reactions and opinions good or bad, but I will watch The Avengers or any other film that sparks my interest no matter what, but the more good reviews the merrier, especially for something to show those darn people you want to bring to the movies for a good time that do get influenced by reviews.
i think it always depends on how the movie looks. There are some movies like The Avengers that I'm planning to see no matter what some of my favorite critics say. But there's others where I'm not really sure about it so I wait till the reviews. I don't think reviews affect movies that much when it comes to big, loud, annoying summer movies (take Transformers DOTM for example, made so much last year but there were so many negative reviews (it did suck alittle))
NO SPOILERS in this review by Lil Miss Movie: [BLOCKED WEBSITE] Also, she reviewed Haywire as not very good!
I don't pay to much attention to the critics!
The movie Haywire got good reviews from critics but that movie was a piece of s!!!! such a boring waste of 2 hours of my life. I will watch Avengers regardless of good or bad reviews.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
