My philosophy regarding films is this: go see it yourself and make your own judgment call.
So, what you're saying is: you're just like everyone else.
Contempt for critics is universal. Nobody listens to them. Or at the very least, nobody will admit to listening to them.
In such a climate, actually admitting that you listen to critics, and allow them to guide your filmgoing choices, is an act of rebellious nonconformity.
So: while the rest of you sheeple are blindly following your own tastes and inclinations, and making your own judgment calls, I'm going to take some expert advice, and see what the critics have to say.
