I Heart Movies – When you’re trying to watch a movie now, you probably don’t always just randomly pick one out. You may look up reviews of random people on the internet. You may also like to read the reviews of critics. Just as likely though, is that you’ll ask your friends how well they liked a film. You know your friends better than you know a random critic or person on the internet, so this usually turns out to be the best gauge of your enjoyment of a film. So instead of calling up a friend to ask them how they liked a film, you can go to their page and see how they rated it. Check the movie faves of my brother which is not only a movie lover but also one of the founders of AllMyFaves, If you love AllMyFaves you will definitely love his movie faves.
