Like it says on the homepage, I’m not qualified to be a movie critic. I didn’t study cinema in college. I’m not an aspiring filmmaker. I can’t speak for the historical significance or the artistic merit of a film. I can’t name the Oscar winners of the last 20 years, or even last year necessarily. I’m not even a journalism major (or minor for that matter). I’m just a regular guy who loves movies.

That being said, I obviously enjoy a great movie much more than a crappy movie. And I’ve found my tastes are often very different than most critics; thus the purpose of this website. I grade the movies I see with my own proprietary scoring system based on a complex series of algorithms. Actually, it’s just based on my gut feeling after pondering about a movie. But I do think it has value for giving a recommendation to other regular people like me who don’t always see eye to eye with critics.

My goal is that people can use the ratings I give out to help decide if a movie is worth seeing, or to help decide between which movie to see. I know my opinion will not perfectly mirror everyone out there, but I do think that it can be a useful part of an equation (including other metrics I reference in my reviews) to give people a useful recommendation.

The site is still growing. I’m always watching new movies and trying to add reviews as quickly as humanly possible. You can help us grow by following RGMR on Twitter or giving us a “like” on Facebook.

Thanks for visiting Regular Guy Movie Reviews.
