Quite often I'll check out a film's scoring on IMDB or with Rotten Tomatoes to see if it's worth watching and to see what others think of it. However, sometimes I really don't agree with the ratings given. With this in mind, how much weight do you put on movie ratings and reviews?

Bad reviews on movies

Would you ever see a film that has received largely negative reviews? Are there any films that you love despite its poor reviews?

I would hesitate even though I know from experience on TV, that some of the reviews that have had really bad ones, have for me, been very good movies.

I cannot think of any at the moment, and have to admit that when looking for movies to record on TV, I look for how many stars -usually if it only has one star, I do not record it, despite knowing that sometimes I have watched one of these and liked it.

It depends on the movie - of course! However a poor review would not deter me from going. I have seen some movies which had poor reviews and I enjoyed them.
Yes I would, I definitely prefer to make my own judgement. I usually check IMDB too though, just to check out other reviews
If I was definite about wanting to see it, I would let a review stop me, but if I were in two minds, then a review would be the clincher.
The only thing bad reviews do for me is lower my expectations, which usually allows me to enjoy a movie more. If I was totally hyped for a movie and read a bad review, I would still go see it. If it sucked, I would be forewarned.
