Rotten Tomatoes and the Wrath of the Dark Knight Fanboys

07.18.2012

Working here at JoBlo.com, I have gotten used to certain Schmoes ripping me a new a-hole for any errors that I make in an article, whether it be spelling/grammar related or a dumb mistake (like referencing George Orwell's 1985...I am such a moron). But, my fellow news editors and I all know that if you let those comments bother you then working for a movie website such as this is probably not the right career path. You cannot let those comments bother you. But, there are rules posted for both the comments on the sites as well as on Movie Fan Central. Those rules exist for a reason. JoBlo himself wants to promote a fun and safe community for fans where we can all talk about our shared passion: movies. That does not mean that we always have to agree.

Over at Rotten Tomatoes, they seem to have gotten themselves into a serious Catch-22 with the reviews for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. The film is currently holding a "certified fresh" rating in the mid-80 percent. But, those reviewers who have dared to take a negative stance on the movie have been met with vitriol and very serious hate messages. This prompted Matt Atchity, editor-in-chief for the site, to suspend comments for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES until after the movie hits theaters this Friday. He wrote a letter to the patrons of the website entitled "This is why we can't have nice things." Check it out here.

There is a very fine line when it comes to the internet. On one hand, Rotten Tomatoes is owned by Warner Bros, who also owns THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Some will say this is a marketing ploy to protect their blockbuster from negative press. But, on the other hand, those commenting on the negative reviews by Christy Lemire and Marshall Fine, amongst others, are taking things way too far. The golden rule for commenting on websites is "don't be a dick". But you cannot control the trolls out there who will rip you a new one just for shits and giggles.

But all of that pales to the fact that the vast majority of those sending hateful messages to these professional critics have not even seen THE DARK KNIGHT RISES yet! Sure, I was disappointed to see some critics say that it was not the best film in the history of motion pictures, but that is their opinion. The entire point of being a critic is to criticize and there will never be an absolute consensus on every movie. Back when TOY STORY 3 was released, fans of the film went apeshit when the movie lost the rare 100% positive ranking on Rotten Tomatoes. Aw, damn, now only 99% of the world loves the movie! It is sullied for eternity! Come on, people, grow up!.

The only thing that matters once THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is released is whether you love it or hate it. I am sure 100% of you Schmoes will not love it. Based on the comments on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES stories we have posted here over the last several months, many of you didn't like the first two Nolan films. That is your opinion and you are absolutely entitled to it. The internet is a forum for us to share opinions. it should not be a place to attack others for having opinions of their own.

This will not be the last time that this happens to a movie. Matt Atchity is worried about a similar backlash when director Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY is released later this year. “We may do away with comments completely or get to a place where comments are only activated after a movie opens.” I hope they do. Rotten Tomatoes should allow comments from those who have seen the movie. If that means blocking comments until the movie is released, so be it. The rest of those who want to share their thoughts can come to JoBlo.com or the site of their choosing. Just remember, don't be a dick.

I've seen it and will hold my review until JoBlo's "What Did You Think" pops-up. I hate these people who get too pissed about a movie not scoring as much as they'd like it to. Look, the only thing that matters is what YOU think of a film. I like Van Helsing. Heck, I like Godzilla from 1998. Flame my ass for all I care, the point is I liked those films, I still like em', and my opinion of them will not change according to what anyone else thinks. These so-called Nolanites or Batman fans seem to

These so-called Nolanites or Batman fans seem to think that just because a review says it's bad, that it really is. No, all it is is an opinion. A very subjective opinion from the mind of an individual. It doesn't mean the movie is bad. In fact, it means next to nothing at all other than the fact that this ONE person thinks the movie has more negatives than positives. That's it. Some people need to lighten up and have some self-esteem and confidence rather than place those virtues on someone else's opinions.

The extreme Nolanites are getting way out of hand. I am glad that RT ceased all comments. I just don't get it. All this for a movie the majority of them haven't seen it, in a franchise not universally loved? Damn!

The "Toy Story 3" incident is a bit more acceptable, as most of the venom came from people believing (rightfully so) that Armond White's review shouldn't count (it'd still be at a 99% though), as he has proven time and again that he A) has a massive bias against all Pixar movies

Even if it was taken too far, I get that. This is far too crazy though.

Do you know the saddest part of the Rotten Tomatoes riots and death threats? Our hero Batman would never approve :P Can't we all be old chums and superfriends? Have we learned nothing by reading so many comics and watching so much goddamed cinema? We the nerds have read, watched, and absorbed too many heroic tales; we are the DORK KNIGHTS that our nation deserves and needs. We get how society should be. If we are but the brave and the bold. . . . .

I don't like Rotten Tomatoes. Its whole system is flawed. You can't consider a review only to GOOD or BAD. What if a critic gives a movie 3 stars? It usually represents an average movie. Or a movie that has better or worse moments. But how would you call that 3-starred movie either good or bad? Lot of movies got Rotten certificate that I like and movies were concidered good that I loathed. My all time opinion about this website is that it's nice to see an agreement sometmes (like in the case

Thank you! I believe their whole ratings system is flawed as well, I do however like having a one the place where the reviews are complied together. I love reading reviews (even if I disagree with them), and that is nice. The Tomato-O-Meter is flawed as hell though.

I'm honestly not one of these Dicks but I can say this. I don't even have to had to have seen this movie yet to read the first paragraph of this negative review of TDKR as written by Rex Reed to find his opinion on the subject to be one that not only can I not trust but should also not be held against the film in any way shape or form. And yes of course that includes Rotten Tomatoes.

Rex Reed The New York Observer: “Get with the program!” scolds another letter from a brainwashed fan of the [link] trilogy, “You are a dinosaur!” He’s probably right, and I probably would—if I could only make one lick of sense out of what this nonsense is all about. Silly pop-culture comic book cinema about grown men in rubber masks and Styrofoam jock straps is bad enough, but incomprehensible gibberish to boot is just plain unacceptable. Halfheartedly, I give The Dark Knight Rises—the third and final Batflick in the Nolan trilogy—one star for eardrum-busting sound effects and glaucoma-inducing computerized images in blinding Imax, but talk about stretching things. That’s all most immature audiences require for their hard-earned money these days. The rest of it should not be reviewed by anyone over the age of 12.

Don't be a dick. Simple. It's goes both ways... I've even seen Dark Knight lovers bashing Marvel's Avengers. and Marvel lovers are Bashing DC's Dark Knight. It's childish. I love DC and collect their comics, but wouldn't never down talk a great movie like The Avengers. I thought that movie was incredibly kick ass and can't wait to see it again. Each respective universe is clearly capable of making some seriously badass characters come to life. How can you not like them both??

It's too easy for people to act like aggressive douchebags and get away with it online. Without accountability some folks will always give into their worse traits, and completely overreact to another person's opinion. It's also tough to 'police' such things without ruining everyone's fun/freedom. Guess the internet just makes it so much easier to forget the person you're abusing is actually a person. For the most part we can just ignore/pity the trolls, but when it comes down to it dealing with

Well to me I never let a critic decide whether to see a movie for myself. I simply go watch the movie & judge it on my own. Kinda like I had my doubts about the new Spider-Man, finally saw it & came out satisfied in the end. I think the problem with some reviews is it's become more than recommending, alot of critics now try to put in their personal views & beliefs. Christy Lemire is notorious for doing this in her reviews, so it's no surprise her TDKR review is a negative. I can imagine what

It seemsshe likes her movies more real world based & i have a feeling even without reading her take, thats her biggest criticism. As far as fanboys wrath, it just comes with the territory, it's easy to act like a dick behind a computer screen & no one likes to hear anything bad about any highly aniticipated movie. If fanboys love a movie (like The Avengers), they attack anyone who doesn't like it or bad mouths it. If fanboys hate a movie (Prometheus comes to mind), they pretty much turn on anyone involved, the actors, directors, writers & then analyze ever thing that was wrong with the movie to a T. If someone happens to like the movie, they attack that person, oh your an asshole who doesn't know movies & it's insult after insult. Bottom line is people just need to chill out & realize movies are suppossed to be entertaining & an escape from life for 2 or 3 hours.

Sad but true

As someone who reviews movies, I get hate mail all the time. Between the vitriol, homosexual panic and bad spelling, they're more funny than anything else.

Here's an example of what I got when I dared to dislike the Drawn Together movie: "asshole licking donkey raping basterd (sic) who's (sic) dad left him because of how ugly his offspring was. You're probably some type of retard who sits around watching Monty Python suck dick you German cock licker. I bet you put drugs in guys drinks

I bet you put drugs in guys drinks and when they're asleep you put a heater next to their balls and make popsickles (sic) out of their ballsweat (sic) you suck (sic) fuck!! This was a hilarious movie and you suck deep fried elk dick."

Can you tell somebody really has no life?

I could (sort of) understand the Toy Story 3 hatred because the New York Press' Armond White is known for being a troll: he preferred Jonah Hex and Transformers 2 and once accused his detractors of being racist. But most of those fanboys need to grow up a bit; not everyone is going to like what you like.

Too Dark And Political?

It seems to me that this movie will suffer critically in comparison to The Avengers in part because Christopher Nolan didn't play it safe. The Avengers was popcorn fun, well-written, entertaining, and with some great action. Joss Whedon balanced all the characters effecitively and I enjoyed the movie immensely. However, there was very little controversy, other than complaints about the adoption line and Captain America referring to one God. In contrast, Nolan decided to do a film that deals
It seems to me that this movie will suffer critically in comparison to The Avengers in part because Christopher Nolan didn't play it safe. The Avengers was popcorn fun, well-written, entertaining, and with some great action. Joss Whedon balanced all the characters effecitively and I enjoyed the movie immensely. However, there was very little controversy, other than complaints about the adoption line and Captain America referring to one God. In contrast, Nolan decided to do a film that deals with a volatile political issue of our times and tell a story in a dark manner. He immediately invites criticism from those who are sensitive to the "Occupy Wall Street" movement. Christopher Nolan's Batman has been consistent in its efforts to be more than simply a comic book movie, and his approach has been dark from the opening scene, and this style of filmmaking can most certainly divide an audience. The Avengers was lighthearted, mostly, and full of humor. It was easy to love.

The other complaints I've read seem to be with the number of characters and a slow first act. Even critics who liked the movie noted these concerns. With the dark tone, political story, and these character and first act issues, as well as expectations, there is bound to be negative press. However, for fans of the film who appreciate Nolan's take on the genre, and who can move past politics and enjoy a film, it seems there are more than enough reviews to suggest this will be worth watching.

This movie seems too controvsersial to be universally liked, but the only opinion that matters is our own. Debating in a civilized manner on a film's merit is acceptable, but attacking someone is just unnecessary. The only thing worse is critics who clearly are trying to get that attention. Hate to say it, but they might deserve it. Still, if we retalliate, aren't we giving them what they want? Isn't that why we say "don't feed the trolls"?

And this is before all the reviews are aggregated. The percentage is going to shift on a daily basis for the first week. I expect it to hit a similar percentage to TDK (94%) once all reviews are in. Nothing to scoff at. Hell an 80% positive is better than most big blockbuster movies released in a given year.

I think some fans treat the Tomato Meter like a video game. They set their minds to a certain percentage they want a movie to hit. All of a sudden their beloved film isn't as good if 96%

All of a sudden their beloved film isn't as good if 96% of critics liked it, as opposed to 97%. Almost nothing will ever get a 96-100% positive rating, especially when it's counting 250+ reviews.

Pussies

The average film critic is a contrived, cocky, worthless untalented wanna-be screenwriter. With that said, I completely agree that the death threats are ridiculous, but don't cast all the Nolan fan-boys under the bus because some of them are idiots. There are a lot of Nolan fans, who like me, started following his career after Memento and Insomnia who are simply, and quietly, awaiting the release of his new film.

I completely agree with you on this. I have been a fan of Christopher Nolan since Memento, and I even enjoyed his first film, Following, which I believe is still available on Netflix. I appreciated his films long before Batman Begins and my anticipation for that film was based on my interest in Nolan as a director, even more than the release of a new Batman film (though I remember being intrigued by Aronofsky's Batman: Year One when he was attached).

I just want to see Chris Nolan's films because I appreciate him as a filmmaker.

This should happen for all movies AT LEAST until it's actually released. If they're going to be inarticulate wastrels, at least let them do it when they've actually seen the film. Also, let's just nuke Rotten Tomatoes.

Not just a trend in movies

This is really lame to be honest people need to get lives and not worry about what a critic says about a movie. Yes it is their job to review a movie and give an opinion on it. Yes it can lead to bad business for a movie, but lets be honest this movie is going to make a mint no matter what. Some people are so protective of what they love that they feel they need to make threats on a forum such as the internet because there are no real repercussions. It's anonymous and they can get away with it.

If they did it would be a shrieking tantrum with no real basis in fact. I mean this movie could be bad or it could not live up to the expectations that were set up with the other films. Sadly, this is not only in movies but in other aspects of entertainment as well. Look at how many times an athlete gets these types of threats on him or his family because of a missed play or subpar performance. It's sad how much our society gets wrapped up in these sorts of things. It's just a movie or a game but it's not your life (hollywood people and athletes excluded) if you like it and no one else does who cares it makes you happy. If your team loses it sucks but it's not the end of the world.

Watch this...

This movie is going to suck, be overbloated and taken too seriously. JGL sucks too. I'm glad every review downplays his character as being practically a nobody in the movie. Nolan should have never made these movies in the first place. WB should have gotten Brett Ratner when they had the chance.

I agree with this write up 100%. This whole nolan fan base is getting too much. They're just as annoying as the twilight fan base but even the twilight fan base had more class to not submit death threats and take it to the next level. Yes Nolan is an awesome film maker, is he the best director of all time or even of his generation? No fucking way. Just enjoy the films as they are and stop obsessing over Nolans balls like your some religious nut who can't stand when people speak in the lords

They're nerds that won't do anything. More than likely they'll see the movie 3 or more times over the weekend because they have no lives, which means that their fighting skills are nonexistent. They can barely talk to a girl, let alone have the balls to actually get into a fist fight with someone.

On the flip side, sticks and stones may break my bones... you know how it goes. I'm certainly not one who spends all my time bashing people on message boards, but we remember how fun it was f'n

Simple. As you said, they got angry over a review. There's plenty of things in life to get angry over. A movie review is not one of them - at least for a person with a life.

Its hard not to be a dick when a critic relates TDKR to a bad transformers movie, Obviously you dont know what the fuck you are talking about when you say something stupid like that and also as good as toy story 3 is how the fuck does it have a 99% but TDKR is in the 80s right now. Like critics are just giving it negative reviews just to be different, so annoying!

Have you seen TDKR? What's annoying are the people who defend any film that they have not seen yet. We can all pass judgement after we have seen it, not before; plus, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Good point, Ahab. I remember making the point that the Green Lantern did not look good at all and seemed quite homoerotic and I got thumbs downed, called an idiot, told to go piss up a rope, etc. Low and behold, the movie came out a month later and it sucked. Then a year later, GL came out as gay.

Have I ever received an apology? No, sir.

Slimbo...I hereby revoke your fan-boy status; from this day forth you will forever be known as the "general audience." IT IS DONE!!

P.S Please before you think you know what you're talking about actually know what you're talking about. Tonight Alan Scott will invade your dreams and reek havoc on your soul.

So the critic couldn't just have a "Transformers" flash when watching this movie? Why not? The critic is only stating that the end action scene reminded him/ her of such, not that the whole thing is that way. Also, for TS3, do you really not believe that it is possible that TS3 resonated with more people than TDKR? Such a thing is simply impossible?
