Like critics.com, CheckTheGrid offers a quick look at what the major film critics think about a particular film. There are a total of 20 critics on tap here, and you can decide which critics you want to hear from whenever you look up a film, although you always have the option to check them all. So if you really don't care what Roger Ebert has to say, you can choose Salon's critic instead. MORE>>
I never check the newspaper when I want to go to the movies these days. I go to critics.com to see what the critics think, The Internet Movie Database to get movie info and check user reviews and MovieFone for showtimes. It's a real pain, but now CheckTheGrid makes it easier, giving me all the information I need in one central location.
