Most movies I like are rated fresh, but just because it agrees with me doesn't mean that I lay more importance to the method.
As for Thor, I just don't feel that that's the kind of concept that is likely to get a really high score, even if it's very well executed. Things like Rotten Tomatoes is affected not only by execution but of choice of genre and themes. I don't think all will be on board with the kind of mix that Thor brings.
Of course your personal assessment matters the most to you and it should.
But a consensus, as indicated by box office and RT score, can increase the chances of a sequel.
If people love the movie you like there will be more movies that cater to your taste put into production. So it does matter what others think.
