Rotten Tomatoes is famous for pretty much one thing: aggregating a whole bunch of movie reviews from critics across the internet and turning them into a convenient, single score for a given movie using a "Tomatometer". Thursday evening showings of Justice League are making their way into theaters, critics have been posting reviews since the embargo lifted and now a Rotten Tomatoes score has officially been released.
Rotten Tomatoes has become one of the most influential movie review sites for potential moviegoers. The reception is not as bad as Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it falls short of the universal praise Wonder Woman got earlier this year.
Oh no, is this Batman v Superman all over again?? Conversely, blockbusters with rock bottom scores such as Baywatch (19 percent) and Transformers: The Last Knight (15 percent) faltered domestically over the summer.
As promised the now infamous Rotten Tomatoes score was made available during the latest edition of See It/Skip It, a web show hosted by Jacqueline Coley and Segun Oduolowu where the two offers their opinions on what's hot and what's not in the world of Hollywood movies and TV shows.
"The objective of Rotten Tomatoes, as per its own About Us page, is that it "offers the most comprehensive guide to what's fresh".
Polygon: There are good, cute and amusing moments that the editing team should be applauded for, but there aren't enough to distract from the handsome, chaotic mess that Justice League ends up being. It did the same for A Bad Mom's Christmas, the dismal score for which they revealed in the debut episode of See It/Skip It.
Compared to Metacritic's score of the film, it's slightly lower. "But it's certainly hard to ignore". Just hit the buttons on the top of this page. That changes the site's scope - and if consumers play along, the effect on movie criticism itself could be far reaching.
