I don't take as much notice these days that I used to. It seems all the big studio based movies get a decent rating anyway.
If it has dreadful scores though I'll read more of the reviews to see if the movie is something I think I could get any value out of seeing.
Yep - on the contrast, some of the 'highly rated' movies are a load of pretentious drivel, or an all out 'special fx' fest, with no storyline, or character development.
Feel a bit foolish now for taking these scores as gospel, and missing out on some pretty good films
