Top 10 Reasons Why Rotten Tomatoes SucksMcgillacuddy
The Top Ten
In may cases, the seem compelled to compare a new movie to some old movie that young people have never even seen or heard of. For instance, I'm 69 years old, and have always like "Legends of the Fall".with Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins, etc. However, many critics will compare it to the 50s movie "Giant" with Rock Hudson and James Dean. Why? The only commonality is both take place under "Big Sky" country. One's a love story about 3 brothers loving the same woman during the settling of Montana, the other is in an oil field story. it's such a stretch. The 2 movies have nothing in common storywise. And, I'll take the acting in Legends of the Fall. It just seems like critics like to show off their reading and past movie watching.
Rotten Tomatoes aren't the ones reviewing the movies. They just compile a lot of reviews, and that's how they get percentages. - BeatlesFan1964
They give rotten scores to some movies I like such as Need for Speed and Age of Extinction - Neonco31
Rotten Tomatoes is so biased. They always give the first season of T.V. shows an average or negative review, but then as soon as it gets really popular and hyped up, then they give the rest of the seasons perfect scores. Their raings are basically a popularity contest, nothing is judged based on actual quality of the content, instead it's based on the critics' irrelevant opinions.V 15 Comments
So I guess The Godfather, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Lord of the Rings, Terminator 2, The Lion King, Toy Story,... are all bad movies because they got a great score.
They seriously gave some great movies like The Shack as well. The Shack was a heartfelt movie, why give it a bad score?!
Based on what? Nothing is objective when it comes to film. - Mrveteran
Yes, Batman V Superman theatrical cut was a mess, but that's because of studio interference. Where is the page for the masterpiece BvS Ultimate Edition, Snyders true cut.V 8 Comments
There is currently an 8%... for the movie Norm of the North on Rotten Tomatoes. What the heck happened to the initial 0%? Did some critic with bad tastes in movies like the art critic from The Googly Artiste in SpongeBob SquarePants actually give praise to such a poor excuse for a CGI-animated film that can't even hold a candle to Chicken Little! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
So...? 8% is really low. Besides Fantastic Four (2015) got only 9% and it was at least decent. - AlphaQ
Are you serious right now? Fans who judge movies based on pandering references do not judge movies better than professional film critics. What an awful list. - DCfnaf
Difference of opinion? What's that? - Mrveteran
Sometimes - JPKV 2 Comments
Never use anyone else as a base to judge a movie. It's your own opinion that matters. - Mcgillacuddy
The Only Good Entry On This List
You shouldn't ALWAYS take other people's opinions to heart; sometimes they can differ heavily from yours. - alphadan12
I Agree With This - JPKV 4 Comments
Depending on what you defy as a 'good movie'. - Mrveteran
Finding dory was good. They gave plan 9 from outer space a 66 rotten tomatoes that is the worst movie ever.
They Gave Justin Bieber Never Say Never A 64%, That Is Like One Of The Worst Movies Ever, Why Did They Give It A 64%? - VideoGamefan5
Please Respect My Opinion On Rotten Tomatoes, Its Just A Bad Website In My Opinion, I Just Don't Like The Website - VideoGamefan5
Um...the critics give the scores and rotten tomatoes gives the average score. - DCfnaf
The method is that critics with higher importance have more influence on the score than any other people on the site. So if one top critic doesn't like it, the score will drop by quite a bit. That's why it's a bad rating system
Because it's on a 1-100 scale? - Nateawesomeness
How? - DCfnaf
IMDB Is Worse On Audience Reviews
The Audience reviews? And you were just saying that audiences review things better than critics. Contradictory statement. - DCfnaf
Clearly you have never heard of imdb - TwilightKitsune
I Wasn't Talking About The Critics, I Was Talking About The General Public's Response To The Secret Life Of Pets.
Whether or not you liked it doesn't mean it should have gotten a zero, it was a decent movie that several million people loved. I didn't like it either but I would base it on the overall, not my personal opinion, but that just goes to show how unbiased I am! I agreed with you until I saw this one!
To be fair, the original wasn't that bad guys. Certainly better than the sequels, and half of the imitators it spawned at the least. - Mrveteran
Oh for Christ's sake, it's an opinion you morons. - DCfnaf
This site seems to consist of children who have nothing better to do in life than complain. Sorry, but it's kind true. (I'm not saying everyone here is a child, but all you do is complain). - DCfnaf
Not a good reason, but yeah, this bit is true. - TwilightKitsune
Back in prehistoric times, when all entertainment took place on a stage before a live audience, if the actors or the skit or play stank, the audience would throw...wait for it...rotten tomatoes...at the stage. Capice?
That Movie Got 64%? It Should Have Gotten 0%, IMDb Gave It A 1.6/10, Which It Deserves That, How Did This Abomination Get A Fresh Score?!, This Is One Of The Worst Movies Ever, Whoever Was At Rotten Tomatoes, Probably Some Retarded Beliebers Who Hacked On Rotten Tomatoes, - VideoGamefan5
Just because it's a movie about Justin Bieber. I get it! - Neonco31
It got 1.6 on imdb. Really? - AlphaQ
64% isn't a good review, it means that 64% of critcs liked it - RecklessGreedV 1 Comment
Probably Because It's Laughably Bad
Were they thinking right when they did this? - TwilightKitsune
It got a higher score than forrest gump!V 1 Comment
That Movie Was Awesome! - VideoGamefan5
That movie is the bomb
This movie is overrated garbage
Nah not really. I would say overrated garbage is that crap Frozen and maybe TITanic - AlphaQ
When It Only Deserves 11% But RT Is Old News Nowadays - VideoGamefan5V 2 Comments
Yeah I didn't put this in the list even though I legitimately don't like this movie. I guess people saw something in it that I didn't see. - Mcgillacuddy
Oh come on! Finding dory deserves a 100% instead of a 94
That Reason Is Stupid
FINDING DORY RULES THE NATION - VideoGamefan5V 5 Comments
Critics can't be right or wrong. They have a god damn opinion. - DCfnaf
Not always. - BoredJeff02
Some youtube critics are better than the ones that write in magazines!
Yeah, no. They have opinions. Who the hell are you guys to say they have "bad taste" in movies. There's no such thing. - DCfnaf
Kinda - JPK
Like These Corrupt A$$holes
Dann Gire(A Hypocrite Who Said Your A Bully For Liking The Secret Life Of Pets)
Matthew Lickona(Bullies Family Oriented Movies For No Reason,Even Zootopia)
Walter Chaw(Random Jerk)
These Reasons Are True
Why Can't We Only Have Good Critics Like Peter Travers,Richard Roeper,Chris Stuckmann,etc!?
These Are Annoying - JPK
Cause they cry over Suicide Squad getting a rightfully deserved score. - DCfnaf
Isn't It Already Obvious
This list shouldn't even exist - Triceratops
Oh I hate rotten tomatoes because of suicide squad-DC fanboy.
Oh come on! Suicide squad is trash! Watch marvel instead
This movie sucks and is overrated - Neonco31
Cause it's a good movie that people just hate because it's popular. - DCfnaf
It's garbage though... - AlphaQ
I hate that movie.
