I agree with that. There are a multitude of films that people rave about that I have never seen, simply because the subject matter doesn't interest me. I've no doubt that those films are well written, well acted, and well directed, but I'm not going to sit through a film that I know won't hold my interest storywise just to admire those attributes. I had to do that enough times when I was a film student.

On the other hand, if I movie I really want to see gets horrible reviews from everybody then I probably won't see it.
That's where I differ. If a film peaks my interest, I'll watch it no matter what anyone else has to say about it.
