1-star reviews on Amazon.com

I've noticed that pretty much every 1-star review I've seen at amazon.com are just rants against the product's existance, not the quality of the product itself. In other words, the 1-star reviewers don't own the product or probably never watched/read/heard/used the product.

So I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't be able to review an item unless you actually bought it from amazon.com or have checked the box that you own the item in question (which is a some-what dicey option since you can just lie when checking the box, with no evidence available to prove you're lying or telling the truth).
