Watch a trailer. Read an interview. Do a little homework.
And you think others don't do that?
SOME don't. You seemed to give alot of credit to what RT Critics or Metacritic would say. Do you let that supercede what you know about your own tastes in movies?
Some things a professionals knowledge is needed on.
A Home inspection
A cracked piston
For some maybe your taxes
Movies are subjective and no one should know better about what you(ie anybody) are likely to like than you. It maybe why I see more bad movies, imo, on Netflix cause something didn't really grab me in the trailer. Likewise it's why I'm likely to see more movies I think are good. My own judgement rarely lets me down in regards to my tastes.
