Friend recs vs. IMDB / Rotten Tomatoes, Yelp, other ratings sites

Does anyone else routinely use IMDB or Yelp to pick from selections, as opposed to friend recommendations?

I suppose that when I get friend recs, I treat them fairly highly. Perhaps I need to investigate what would happen if I solicited more recs from friends: does a point exist where my list of movies to watch would be mostly friend-based?

More likely, I think that I would only really value the recs from a few friends, and those friends wouldn't have enough Highly Rated movies between them to saturate my To Watch list.
