We’re officially four days away from The Batman hitting theaters (well, two and three days for some people) and the review embargo has been lifted for the film, revealing the thoughts of so many critics and yes, the reactions have me very excited for Friday. Here are some of them.Continue reading ‘The Batman’ Reactions Are Finally Here!
Well, folks, I’m seeing Eternals today and I’ve got to say, this is the first time since The Rise of Skywalker that I’ve been this pessimistic about going to see a film. I am one to create my own opinions on a film and not listen to the critics but I can’t help noticing the Rotten Tomatoes score getting lower and lower.
But the audience is beginning to speak and they are struck by the withering reviews the critics left behind. They are calling the film epic, dark, mature, profound, and all-around incredible. So maybe I’ll join their ranks and find the film very enjoyable. One thing’s for certain. I’ll be providing a verdict in a matter of hours. I hope I have good news.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
I’ve never been one to fully rely on critics to help me decide whether to watch a film or not but I do pay attention to the score. For example, Joker, among critics has a 68% Rotten Tomatoes score and yet I’ve watched the film FIVE times. Suffice it to say, I really like the movie and was surprised to see it lower than at least 85%. There are other films whose scores may be low but I enjoy regardless; Transformers: Age of Extinction (17%), Rush Hour 2 (57%), Jungle Cruise (62%) or even Interstellar whose 72% score seems preposterous to me.
So a dismal Rotten Tomatoes score won’t exactly deter me from watching a film I’m interested in but I do see it. The fact that this movie is now the lowest-rated MCU film, even under Thor: The Dark World seems baffling to me. If this movie is so bad why did the critics just outright tell us so. Why are they beating around the bush?
I get the overall negative view of the film. It’s all over the place, the plot is messy, and it’s a bit too much like a DC movie. But aren’t the characters and the eventual showdowns enough to balance the “dense” narrative?
I don’t know what’s with this new movie but I hope I personally enjoy it more than Captain Marvel.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
So, I’ve got some more Marvel news today.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings dropped a cool two-minute featurette that highlights the film’s action sequences and styles. So excited for this!
The film’s review embargo has been lifted as well so the Rotten Tomatoes score is out and with 51 reviews it sits at an eye-widening 94%. In fact, the score has literally gone up since I started writing this post. I may have to revise this section of the post again before I publish this. Wow!
With that score it’s regarded as the second best Marvel film behind only Black Panther (96%) and is currently tied with Avengers: Endgame and Iron Man. Oh snap!Continue reading Some More Marvel News For the Day
I’ve recently done a Harry Potter marathon at which case my feelings for certain films have changed exponentially. So, I have no choice but to change my ranking of these films. Enjoy!
8. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince isn’t a bad movie but compared to the other Harry Potter films it’s kind of a bore. I really do love the end when Harry and Dumbledore go after the fake Horcrux or when Snape has to kill Dumbledore. There’s a lot of emotion in those last few minutes and yeah, who can’t help shedding a tear as Harry cries over Dumbledore’s body. If the whole movie was like the last thirty minutes it’d definitely be higher on this list.
A few months ago I wrote a post sharing all of the Rotten Tomatoes scores of the Marvel movies at that time. Now I’ve decided to do the same for all ten Star Wars movies. Let’s see which movies prevail and which movies the critics deem the worst in the franchise. Enjoy!
11. The Rise of Skywalker: 52%
Yep, The Rise of Skywalker sits at the bottom of this list and I’m not surprised. This movie had its exhilarating moments but it had plenty of horrible moments as well. Too many to count on two hands.
Audience Score: 86%
The audience liked it more than the critics did, obviously. I’m on the side of the critics. Continue reading These Are the Rotten Tomatoes scores for Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie: from Worst to Best
