Default Re: Thor 2: Rotten Tomato Watch

Rotten tomatoes is a VERY flawed metric because it doesn't take into account degrees of enjoyment. Someone can technically make a film that scores a 90%, but that 90% of critics thought it was a good not great movie. But, no one reads the reviews to look into that.

I always laugh whenever people bring RT scores into a debate on the merits of a film. Films are enjoyed on a person by person basis. You can't measure how much YOU enjoy something based on a percentage of critics or people that can skew the results (see IMDBs great Godfather vs The Dark Knight war in 2008). It's not a perfect metric, yet people think it is.
