Movie Reviews serve no purpose today as most of them are paid
Moview Reviews used to be a pointers for audience to make their weekend plans. However, with too many reviewers and paid reviews flooding the market, its easy for a bad movie to get good ratings. Big production houses and famous directors always end up getting high ratings and thereby collect back their money in the opening week itself. In this background movie reviews in most channels stand to lose their credibility.

Movie reviews never served any purpose at all. It is like going to a cafe and asking a random person to choose the coffee for you.

No need of review for good movies before release, but today the competition is so high and many films fail to get success in box offices get this new way of review to fool people of rating 4 to 5 and when they witness the film and get fooled to be avoided, it`s also comes under cheating business

Yes, the way the reviews are purposefully done nowadays very categorically indicates a tendency to make a movie marketable done by a reputed house instead of judging the standard from an impartial point of view. Thus no real purpose is served only the monie lovers are decieved..

I feel it's better to watch a movie and decide for yourself.Personally,I rarely go by reviews as people are entitled to their opinions but they don't have to be mine.There are times when a film with really great reviews turns out to be pretty average and vice versa.A true film buff will never be discouraged by a scathing review but will always prefer to make up his or her own mind.

How can we be sure that a particular review is paid? Reviews are always subjective. What is liked by somebody may not be liked by some others. Just because your taste doesnt match with the reviewer, you cannot call the review as paid.

As soon as you start accepting money for your reviews - you lose any chance of being neutral. Its not only movie reviews but true for gadgets, cars or restaurant reviews too.

No , all movie reviews are not paid for . Another important thing is that Money has nothing to do with the review. Yes, what is available without money? If a reviewer takes money for review, that is like a salary taken by a teacher for making a student aware . Here also a reviewer makes a viewer aware of the great points in the film. Even if it is a praise , no harm.
