You're not really watching a movie, if you haven't googled its rating, review, cast and other necessary information. From the review of acclaimed critics to the audience like us, every person who watches the movie has something new to say. And being a blood sucking movie-buff, it is our responsibility to know everything about a movie, in and out before we begin to watch it!
There is nothing wrong in preparing yourself but sometimes, you might also get under the wrong impression. I mean, we understand that nobody like to waste their time on a bad movie but what if the ratings that are being shared on the internet are misleading and biased? Yes, that’s wrong to us and cinema but it happens.
The world refers to IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and Rotten Tomatoes but what will you do if they’re giving our wrong results? You obviously miss out on some of the most epic work! So all I’m trying to say is that, don’t go on blindly trusting some website because it has been regularly uploading data. A few digits cannot foretell the potential of a movie and to prove that we have some examples too.
Some movies have got horrible ratings but they are loved by the critics and audience. That means it isn’t a flop after all - in fact, far from it. So how about judging whether a movie is good or bad, all by yourself?
The below listed movies have not even received a proper 7 by the IMDb but still, it’ll be shameful if you don’t watch them at least once!
