Movies have a lot of ways they can go wrong. But they also have a lot of ways they can go right. They're easier than a pure form, like books, because if a movie's really good in just one aspect, that makes it a "good movie" overall. If the visuals are really amazing, the movie might be good or at least "worth watching" even if the plot and acting are totally retarded.

ps. "Village of Dreams" is really great. It's sort of pointless, and I hate child actors, sometimes they're really bad, but overall it's so sweet and paints a really deep picture of this small town in Japan and the family dynamics.
