The Benefits of Reading Movie Reviews

by James Murphy


Are you stuck on what movie to watch next or how to keep yourself entertained, and want to know how to choose the best movie? Do you want to know more about what benefits you can get from reading movie reviews before watching a film?

When it comes to watching movies, many people like to go into the experience with as little information as possible. After all, part of the fun is discovering everything about a movie for the first time along with everyone else in the theater. 

However, some people like to know as much as they can about a film before seeing it, and for those folks, reading movie reviews can be extremely beneficial. Here is why.

Reviews can help you make an informed decision about what films to watch

In today’s day and age, there are so many movies that are being made all the time and this can make the decision of choosing the right movie very tough. there are many things that you could consider when it comes to watching a movie and sometimes looking at the poster of it just doesn’t give you a good enough idea as to what you’re watching.

You can find reviews on just about any film that has been made in the entire world and reading reviews can be incredibly helpful for multiple reasons. If you are someone that struggles to choose between different films because you don’t know what they’re about or what do you expect from them, film reviews are exactly what you need. Whether you’re a cinephile or not, there’s no doubt that Reddit is a great resource for finding movie reviews. With so many people contributing to the conversation, you’re sure to find an opinion that aligns with your own. Reddit is a social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Registered users can submit content, such as links, text posts, and images. Posts are organized by subject into user-created boards called “subreddits”, and users have the option to outsource Reddit engagement, i.e. buy votes from services that help them get ahead.

Some reviews can help you make an informed decision about what films you want to watch because of the amount of information that they can give you such as the genre, how other people reacted to the film, the length of the film, and so much more. Knowing this information can make your decision that much easier

Reviews can give you an idea of the film’s tone, genre, and overall quality

For the most part when it comes to choosing a film to watch people generally choose based on the genre of a film because it gives them an idea of what to expect and how the film might play out in terms of their enjoyment. However just looking at the genre of a film might not give you a clear indication as to what you will be watching, and this is where reading reviews comes in handy.

Not only will you be able to get a better idea as to what the genre is as well as the sub-genres, but you will also have a clearer understanding of what the film’s tone is and just the overall quality of the film in general. This information can make it easier to decide whether or not you want to watch the film or would rather pass on it and watch something else.

Reviews can help you avoid wasting your time on bad films 

Something that many people struggle with when it comes to watching a film is feeling obligated to watch a film completely through even though it is terrible. However, if you’re not enjoying it, it’s just a waste of time and not something that you should be doing.

Finding an entertaining movie that won’t waste your time can be done through movie reviews. This is by far one of the biggest and most prominent reasons why people read movie reviews on various films.

When using different forums such as Reddit or other review platforms you can find the best movies in the industry according to the opinions of other people. Since 430 million people use Reddit every month, there is no doubt you’ll find the opinion you’re looking for. Not only will you get to see a percentage or a rating, but you will also get to hear what people liked and disliked about the movie and how they thought it could have been better or how they thought it did well. There is no point in wasting your time on a bad film when you can spend a little bit of extra time reading and reviewing and finding a good film.


These days there are just so many different films to choose from that it can be difficult to find the right one that will be both entertaining and enjoyable for you as well as keep you captivated for the entire duration of the movie. Reading reviews will only help you.
