Moviegoers live for New York Times movie critiques. The prestigious paper's reviews hold about as much weight as a review by Roger Ebert, and just by looking at what movie was reviewed and who critiqued it, the public at large gauges whether a movie is worth seeing at the theaters, is an "I'll rent it from Redbox when it comes out" release, or a film not worth seeing at all.
