@Breumaster,

Please change the title of your list from:

PS: Face-Off: What's Your Take on Critics?

To:

Face-Off: What's Your Take on Critics?

= = =

I tend to read reviews from critics who write well, even when I may disagree with their reviews. I use the cross section of reviews to determine which films that I will likely see.

Profesional critics never, but I started to check and like IMDb users' reviews. I check the ones who gave a 10 rating and a 1 rating to the movie I'm interested.

I just enhanced it a little and generalized it to make it more comfortable to a wider range of users.

I changed the Wonder Woman option to that. It's better so.

All options filled. As long as there are no improvements, I declare it as ready to go.

I do read professional critics like Ebert, Bosley Crowther or Vincent Canby from the NY Times or Pauline Kael (especially when she gets nasty), but I read them after I watch the film... and after I review it. They rarely influence my opinion except when I'm left perplex by a film and I can lean in one direction or another... so sometimes, I read critics before writing a review, not that it influences my opinion, but I like to use a critic's take on a film to either contradict or support it.

I use IMDb's review section as well.
