IMDb.

It's not perfect, but you get a wide range of reviews there and their overall ratings are better.

Seriously though forget movie reviews. Just go see it if you want to.

IMDb is my choice. There's a wide range of opinions and the threads usually produce much lulz.

I find Rotten Tomatoes to be great. They rate things hard, so when you see something that is rated highly, you absolutely know it's great. Whereas IMDb is alright for a general idea( I use it all the time) all the ratings are user based so when movies first come out, they are so much higher than they deserve. For this same reason many movies are horribly underrated.

For example, Rotten Tomatoes gave Adaptation 90% which is rightfully deserved, but IMDb has it rated as 7.9...

they just aggregate results from critics. if youre looking for critic reviews, rotten tomatoes is not a bad site. if youre looking for fourteen-year-old-sneaking-onto-his-parent's-computer-late-at-night-to-watch-porn-and-review-the-watchmen-reviews, its not the best place.

Rotten Tomatoes is just a list of other reviews. By (for the most part) real movie critics that actually rate films on merit as films and not on coolness of explosions.


IMDb scores aren't worth crap; they get hyped up by anonymous idiot fanboys, like the ones who flooded the rating system with tens for The Dark Knight and 1's for the Godfather when the former came out.

Raising Arizona is better.

charlie kaufman versus the cohen brothers would be a showdown worthy of song, but the cohens will always win out. and this is coming from a guy who has seen being john malkovitch at least four times.

Lord of war blew. He played exactly like he does in most of his movies, which is, annoying.

Arizona was different because of the Coen bro's. Hell, they make everyone look amazing.

And the horrible remake of Matchstick Men was crap. Hurt my eyes.

Their "barometer" for judging movies is good, but the system is flawed because the critics sway the general votes and critics opinions mean crap to me when I think about seeing a movie.

Imdb ore i just ask someone who has seen the movie.

IMDb had the Dark Knight at like...#1 movie ever for a while. Which is complete bullshit.
