I am a HUGE Stephen King fan. I have read all the books, watched most of the movies, you all know the drill. Recently A Good Marriage, one of my favorite short stories came out as a film, so naturally I was excited. However, after reading all the reviews, I kind of ended up getting depressed over it. I usually don't pay too much attention to reviews since most critics tend to have the complete opposite taste to mine, but I honestly wanted to see if it would be worth my time. Everyone knows that most of Stephen King's books do not translate well into film. The film usually cuts out certain parts of the story, or changes certain aspects of it that disappoint fans. (The ending of The Mist is a prime example!) But, after reading the reviews and watching the movie, I felt kind of disappointed. Usually I don't read reviews until after I watch a movie, but this time around I did it the other way around, and kind of found my opinion altered a bit. My question is, does anyone else tend to read reviews and base their decision on watching a film on someone else's opinion? And has anyone ever really agreed with what critics say?
