So what roles will be allowed in Ephlandtopia? And how else am I supposed to gauge whether to go and see a film than by listening to the opinions of people who've seen it? Anyone who bases their judgement on one reviewer is asking for trouble. I don't know anyone who likes exactly all the same things I do. You read around, get a feel for what different people think and why. A review is one person's subjective opinion. You're as likely to agree or disagree with it as you are with any other opinion. Arguing that critics are pointless because you don't always agree with them is a deeply flawed notion.
