Brett Ratner has a problem with Rotten Tomatoes.
Especially with the way it treated Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Wow. Who would have thought?
It’s not like he had any skin in that game, or anything.
I suppose he’s right, though. I mean, just because Hollywood makes crappy movies to try to palm off on the unsuspecting viewing public, that doesn’t give a website the right to put all of the critics’ reviews of said film in one spot for that same viewing public to check out before spending their hard-earned money on said crappy movie.
What gives RT the right to do that?
What gives RT the right to sabotage a film’s box office appeal by letting people know what the critics think about a movie?
Next thing you know, authors will be blaming Goodreads for poor sales…
Rotten Tomatoes is a reflection of what the critics are already saying. If more critics liked a movie, the “freshness” score would be higher. Perhaps, and I’m just spit-balling here, so bear with me, but maybe, just maybe, if Hollywood made better movies, you wouldn’t have this problem.
Just a thought.
