Also this is incredibly Ridiculous. A movie critic has a better ability to decide the quality of a movie than you do. They've seen more movies, therefore are far more educated into what makes a quality movie
Yes there are several aspects of a movie that are absolutely individualized especially interpretation as well as enjoyment
However there are definitive aspects of a movie that make it quality or not. As with any art form there are still several parts that are 100% up to he viewer
Interpretation of scenes, enjoyment, how you view style choices
But like I said there are definitive aspects regarding quality in film. Poor writing, poor editing, plot holes, poor pacing
Those are definitive things that a critic is far more equipped to discuss than you
That's like saying listening to a philosophy teacher about philosophy is no different than a homeless man
False. Some people are more educated and therefore their opinions have more depth than yours. Get used to it. I'm not going to walk around and act like I know more about computers than bill gates
Everything you mentioned would be caught on by a 5th grader. Poor acting, really? Anyone with eyes can see that. The other things as well. Your gonna sit there and tell me someones view on a movie is more important than mine because they have a more refine taste for movies? Now that is some bull[expletive]. You cant have a special taste that makes you a better source for a review than anyone else out there that is what I am trying to say. Critics are just people that need to voice their opinion, but at the end of their day their opinion isnt worth two cents. I dont care what film classes you attended or what degree you hold, your view on a movie means nothing to me, all that matters is what I think.
Steven Spielberg probably would call a bunch of the films I like pieces of crap, so what? Thats my point no ones taste is a substitute for your own. I have no problem with discussing opinions on movies, but if you actually think someone's opinion on a movie holds more weight than your own because their a so called "critic" or they know movies that is just dumb. Its all a matter a preference and no one will have the same exact thought on something as you.
