Do you let critics decide your opinions on movies?Critisize here.
? Guess not, but I'm curious.

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.
Both added, Dan's and Mario's.
All options filled. As long as there are no improvements, I declare it as ready to go.

Hi Jessica. Corrected.
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.
Thank you, Jessica. Thank you, Buddies. :D
How can we improve?
