This weekly movie ratings column recommends which films to see -- and which to avoid -- based on the opinions of actual moviegoers. Creator Bob Habes and his staff conduct exit polls in theaters across the country, tabulate the results into a chart of the Top 20 movies, and compare the public's opinion of each film to what the critics have to say (based on an average of 10 critics' ratings nationally). Habes also includes commentary and viewers' quotes on feature films and the latest DVD releases.
