Who do you check before buying a ticket? Ebert? Travers? The Angry Jew?

Personally, the Jew is yet to let me down. He's my quality-meter.

Thanks, man.

I chose 'other'. I like to read stuff from the following guys at least once a week:

Ebert
David Poland
James B.
W. Chaw
a half dozen OFCers
Erik the Freakman/Oz/Snider/Freek/Souty/Guv/etc/ (actually, I read EVERY HBS review - truth)
JoBlo
most reviews listed at Apollo Guide and Daily-Reviews, cuz I write there too Smile

Ebert has been fairly solid, but not enough to be a quality meter. I dont' really watch anyone else, because I don't watch much TV.

I moved away from Utah a year ago, but I still read the guys from the Salt Lake papers, Jeff Vice and Sean Means. Unfortunately the bastards at the San Fran Chronicle have let me down once too often (A five star rating for "Wisconsin Death Trip" was really the last straw, and four for "Blue Crush" hasn't changed my mind any.)

on HBS, I like Oz, TAJ, and Eric Snider (another good ol' Utah boy!) I also find Erik the Movieman, Jim the movie Freek, and King of the Bros (when he shows up) pretty amusing.

I watch Ebert and Roeper just to support their show. I used to read Siskel, but he cannot review anymore...I read pretty much any reviews I find on whatever piece of junk I am renting, but I love and trust the talented Mrs. Norman Maine. She has great advice- from her insights into film to how to handle lippy domestic help to repelling the clumsy passes of an inebriated Robert Evans...
