Sometimes. A lot of times it seems reviewers don't pay attention to what type of movie they are watching. (What? The cheesy horror movie has a crap plot?!?! The Expendables 2 was just more of the same, but better? WHAT!???!)
Sometimes they do get some stuff right tho.
Definitely. Sometimes they get it right, of course, but every dog has its day.
I have been on film sites and the same person has reviewed a lot, so much you can see a trend. Such as;
Tree of Life *****
Scarface Blu ray *****
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy *****
The Godfather re-release *****
Expendables 2 *
Princess Diaries *
It's almost laughable but then you see people not going to see Expendables or Princess Diaries because they feel it's not good because some arrogant art-house wannabe director has given it 1 star. It would be like a Justin Bieber fan giving something by Jimi Hendrix 1 star and Biebers latest *****
My point is, nobody should care if critics don't like it. If it's a carbon cutout of the first 1 it will still be worth seeing.
