    Not really. I'll watch trailers and listen to what other that I know people thought, but never really bother with reviews.

    For me there have been tons of movies I've seen get bad reviews that I have loved! Then there are some that everyone raves about and I find to be extremely terrible. So I don't get too wrapped up in reviews cause I bet there are movies out there that people have told you were just stupid so you don't watch it, but it could turn out to be one of your favorite movies! lol I know I've missed out on some for that very reason, but to each his own smile

    I prefer to be surprised.  I think movie trailers especially give away way too much of the plot.

    Nope. I always go in to the film with a blank canvas. Everyone has a different interpretation of what they would like to see and how they would like to be entertained. Saying that, there are particular Critics who seem to think along the same lines as I do, so I will sometimes read there reviews, but will still make my own mind up.

    Sometimes, like if it's a film that I'm debating seeing. But no, if it is a film I plan on seeing that I am really excited about. In the past, there's been lots of poorly rated films I have loved.

    I like to read reviews for certain films to know what I'm getting myself into, but positive or negative, I never let the review dissuade me from seeing it. There have been some universally panned movies that I liked or loved, and some universally praised movies that I just couldn't stand.

    Sure, I actually look at ratings and reviews to decide if I should watch the movie or not. Just keep in mind that you should not look for detail reviews as it's gonna spoil your movie
