It’s not uncommon for the movie fan to read film reviews to get an idea of what to expect from the movies they plan to watch. A bad review may discourage some but the rest would still see it if only to confirm what film critics say. On the other hand, a good review is effectively a promotional endorsement on its own. Film Reviewers or critics create a good read for a subject film whether good or bad. They are often freelance writer/reviewers who are paid to write and send their reviews to newspaper publishers and websites for publication.
