The Neighbor

So I watched this movie over the weekend and OH BOY was it bad!
I never read reviews or ratings, I usually read the description and decide if I want to watch it.
It sounded interesting, but actually it was boring AF.

These are generally a warning sign to me.

Usually the more awards that I've never heard of, the bigger the chance that it will bore me to death or I'll have no clue what is going on.

At least that catchphrase is true.

ok well as a rule of thumb anything below a 7 on imdb is generally terrible. IMDB inflates ratings like crazy. Rotten tomatoes is a far better gauge as per above example. IMDB gave it 57% vs Tomatoes at 36% close to half .

EDIT. - stick to audience reviews, critics generally care about things nobody else does and the more SJW PC crap in the movie the higher critics rate it. Take venom for example, audience score 90% critics 30%.
btw watch Venom, really good fun.
