it needs to be 60% or over and have a certain number of reviews to be certified fresh.

Rotten Tomatoes would be their other attempt at getting the audience members that are left disinterested in seeing the movie, by telling them that the movie is bad. Which pretty much just leaves the die hard fans that will see it no matter what. I got to hand it to them. I don't like it at all, but it is quite brilliant actually. Surfer


What obligation does Warner Bros have to promote another studio's movie? If Cap fails because it didn't have a trailer in front of Harry Potter (although my screening did) and Rotten Tomatoes, then that's Paramount's fault. Acting as if this is some kind of conspiracy by Warner Bros to undermine Captain America's success is just ridiculous and makes you come off as paranoid. I suppose WB was also responsible for Paramount starting its marketing campaign so late?

Wow It's a metaphor for both their movies . Thor Started off powerful (95%) then was banish to earth and Odin took away his powers (77%)

Cap starts off like a skinny guy (33%) Then when he receives the Serum he grows (73%)

Harry's review is kinda ridiculous but it's got me very excited at the same time. I've never understood that mans approach(especially when he got into his gripes section) but for the first time I was fully digging what he was selling.

can't wait.

A rotten review asks a fresh one:
-"Who are you?"
-"The first of many"

the TMT review is negative, kinda surprising seeing as that site has been really pushing it.

edit
just noticed the reviewer is more of a GL dude.

So just curious, but what is RT tweeting now about Cap? They were pretty anxious to spread bad word of mouth.

I read some of these reviews; I honestly didn't get most of the negative points. Totally didn't come across while I was watching the film.

I'm confused why people can praise a poor movie like Thor so much and give Captain America so much crap. Ridiculous.

I'm surprised the tomatometer with the top critics is higher than the main tomato percentage.

Surprise surprise, they've tweeted nothing since Cap's been fresh. But they have addressed the whole WB 'conspiracy thing'.
On the article on CBM: "That piece is so far from the truth it's actually pretty funny."
And again: "It's not a WB order to screw with Cap; we're just trolling conspiracy nuts. Umad?"

i stans corrected...this is one of the great attributes of being mature. we accept our faults. For the first time i stand corrected about RT. I still have a huge fear about how i may feel after midnight showing since it has been compared to Thor by many or slightly better and to me that is far from a good thing as Thor is MEDIOCRE as hell. I personally am not a fan of comic book movies that are not above 80% ive realised. I tried to like Thor, but yeesh it was too campy for me and i pray Cap Am isnt that way too. based on the clips im not impressed at all, but lets see.


Like why would those guys with the flame throwers just surround him with fire instead of straight up roast him head on. he couldnt have survived that so i dont get it in movies sometimes how they give up logic for a cool angle or what not. anyway...we'll see. ill be honest about my feelings on it after a viewing
