Re: Thor 2: Rotten Tomato Watch
Yeah it's not an absolute. Sometimes the ratings are too low. I felt that Man of Steel should've been in the 60's not 50's; or that Oblivion should've gotten a higher score. But then, there's movies where the rating is fairly justified. Like Quantum of Solace vs the two other Daniel Craig Bond films. Or Grown-Ups 2.
I DO think it's a decent method at gauging a mainstream genre film, rather let's say an indie flick which tends to be an acquired taste anyway.
