question of the day: What rules should film critics follow?

Last week the members of the Online Film Critics Society were asked what primary rules we follow as critics — click through to read them. (Yes, we’re trying to build traffic there.)

I’ll reveal my primary rule here, though:

I always think, when I sit down to write a review, “How did this movie make me feel?” And that’s what I try to convey when I write.

What’s your take, as a reader of criticism? What rules should film critics follow? Is there a rule that a film critic could break that would make you stop reading his or her reviews?

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me. Responses to this QOTD sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here.)
