I know I do, but it seems with recent movies like "Twilight" and the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" becoming such HUGE hits. I'm starting to wonder if everyone honestly does. thats why i would like to ask all of you, do you listen to film critics?
I usually listen to Roger Ebert because he seems to do his movie reviews based upon whether movies are actually enjoyable or not.
No. I make up my own mind on what movies I would like to see. But of course, I don't go out to the movies much either! (way too expensive!!)
The movie critics like to think of themselves as very highbrow. And that somehow we are just a bunch of unsophisticated neandrathals who just don't get it ! They in my opinion are a pretentious lot. Just like the ones that show up at an art gallery. Movies are supposed to be a sometimes serious affair and sometimes they are just supposed to be fun !
I wish they would hire me. I would give them an honest assessment. But the studio execs would hate me !
I used to like to watch the critics and take note of their picks and pans, then after the movie came out I would see if they ate crow or not. That was fun. I forget the one guys name, but if a movie he didn't like became a hit, he would blame it on the fact that the audience wouldn't know a good film if it fell on them.
