Do you read reviews before checking out a new book or film? If so, from where?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St. on November 8, 2011
“Amazon.com for books, movies and everything. I’d rather not have reviews from professionals, they’re slanted.”
“Rotten Tomatoes. I don’t often agree with them, but I look.”
“I do for movies but not books. I read movie reviews from newspapers and occasionally online.”
“I pick movies through word of mouth and books by my favorite authors and by recommendations.”
