This has been on my mind for awhile now, so it's not a decision I made recently. It started when I kept thinking back to my teen years, and how so many of my favorite films, one's I consider classics, are actually considered crap by many critics, and I asked myself "What potential classics am I missing out on because I listened to other people tell me what is good and not good?" and I decided that I am not going to let negative reviews influence me anymore. Hell, back then, I would rent any movie that looked cool to me. Now though, it seems i'm always asking myself "I wonder what the rating is at Rotten Tomatoe's, or did this critic or that critic like this movie?". What have I turned into here? I never asked those kinds of questions back then before renting movies. I want to keep my tastes as diverse as possible, like they were then. I don't want to become someone who would pass on say '13 Ghosts' because the general opinion is that it's a bad movie, I want to see for myself. So, from now on I will not let anyone influence me about a particular movie, if I think the movie looks good, i'll check it out, with a free will, and a clear mind. Except Ron's reviews of course.
