I feel that imdb.com usually gives some good information about a movie by its rating. Well, not necessarily that it's any good, but usually if it's either incredibly terrible, very popular, well-made, unusual or classic. I don't judge ratings by how high they are, but by what they mean in the given context. Therefore, I usually need ratings from multiple sources, both professional as user ratings and both good and bad, to get any idea of the value of a title. That is just the ratings, of course. It doesn't tell me everything, but it's a fast way to get some idea.
