Rt has a strong influence in me since I visit that site everyday, though I don't agree with every rating in that site like for example the rating for TASM, Iron Man, Captain America, The Dark Knight etc.... IMO those films should have a lower rating compare to X2/First Class.
And I would like to repost this post:

And they all have rotten ratings in RT.
For me, The Wolverine is the best superhero film of the year but I'm pretty sure there's people out there who sees Iron Man 3 as the best of 2013, and they would use the Rt rating system to defend that film and in the Rt rankings, Iron Man 3 has a higher placement than The Wolverine and some people might see it that IR3 is indeed better than TW even if they haven't seen both of those films. Basically, if The Wolverine got a higher Rt rating than Iron Man 3, its good on paper, good for public/critical reception and for bragging rights.
