How do prior expecations affect your enjoyment of films?


We answer The (Movie) Question!

A bit late this week, due to failed internet and other things, but here we are! No real pressing news this week, so we went broad. Our culture is so media-centric that we're inundated with opinions constantly. I mean, you're here, reading this site, meaning you have been filled up with our blatherings at the very least, and probably a whole lot more. 

But how does that affect the way you see movies? When you see the score at the bottom of our reviews or what's on Metacritic or quoted out of context in banner ads or whatever, what role does that play in your eventual feeling of a film?

Let us know in the comments below, and then subscribe to our YouTube channel, because it will make you happy deep down inside and us happy all over the damn place.
