I think the image below perfectly sums up how I feel about review websites and aggregate websites like Rotten Tamato and Metacritic. I have lost count of how many films I have seen this year alone that critics said were bad and I have really enjoyed. By the same token, I have seen many films that critics praised and ended up being nothing more than a sugar coated turd.
I have learned not to trust movie critics, and instead to see what the viewing public says. If movie critics were trustworthy, then the reboot of Ghostbusters was actually a very funny film with “stunning” visual effects and not the lukewarm bag of unfunny Scooby Doo garbage we ended up getting. Movie critics? This is a prime example of what happens when people start treating their entertainment as politics and pushing agenda’s.
