I don't often pay much attention to movie reviewers, but Mark Kermode is one that I do. I don't always agree, but I find I agree far more than I disagree such that he has useful input for me;

Example of a review (Blade Runner 2049)

By way of an example of a film he decidedly does NOT like (and an amusing rant), I give you:

"They might look the same, but they don't taste the same."

There's no single film critic who I follow closely and I very rarely follow the advice of review aggregate sites like Rotten Tomatoes. If the premise of a film piques my interest enough, I will see it regardless of whether it has glowing reviews or is getting trashed by every single critic out there. "Chronicles of Riddick" is a prime example for me.

I actually value the opinions of people who I know personally or at least people who I've had an online rapport with for a long time much more than the opinions of film critics.
