26 Spiritwalker 1 year ago Appreciated your little review, M. Proteus. You touched on some fine points that made sense to me. Critics haven't liked this one; there's a reason I don't get my opinions from critics. But as to your point above -- that you don't put much stock in critics -- well, that is absurd. Simple reason why: movies cost us money to see, movies cost us time to see. I do not want to waste my money nor my time, therefore film critics serve a great purpose. If a film that I was interested in seeing gets 1 star, terrible reviews across the board, then I will not waste my money and time seeing it. On the flip-side, I had zero interest in seeing those LORD OF THE RINGS fantasy crap movies, but the reviews across the board were beyond favorable so I saw them. Glad I did.Critics serve a purpose. They don't tell us if we will like or dislike a film, rather they tell us whether we should take our time to see a film or not.Believe me, I have been burned too many times. The film below got zero stars in every single review. I went to see it anyway. As the film progressed...I sat in the theater shaking in anger. I wanted to do physical harm. Worst film I ever saw. I should have heeded the critics, on this one, no?
