Bingo. Comparisons work both ways.

"WRONG"

SR "failed" with the GA because it was a donner remake. It was a "hit" with the critics.

This film is seemingly failing with those same Critics, and has yet to do anything with the audience but drive up fandango charts.

Right?

What do you think they're going to do? Reboot, sequel, Justice League or absolutely nothing?

It could be a case of most of the rotten reviews coming now, and then, an onslaught of positive reviews, it's happened before, there are times when you feel like it's only negative after negative

Both Burton and Nolans Batman were "dark" and "brooding" and devoid of a captivating timeless romance.

MoS and Donner-verse....seemingly have tonal differences on a grand scale.
I've yet to see it though.

^ When more BLOGGERS watch the movie, they can keep it above 60. Most of the film BLOGS I've seen praised the movie. So I expect the score to rise when it comes out, but not a ton.

If MOS isn't a success, they would just keep making Batman movies.

No, I don't think anybody ever has compared a Bug to a Porsche.....but I'm having trouble seeing the logic there.

We're talking old Superman and new Superman, not entirely different cars. did you seriously think nobody would be comparing these movies just because they had different directors and are set in different universes? You're joking, right?

i agree but it looks like some critics ( not all of them) dont like this movie because its "too serious" . They think a comic book movie has to have some funny scenes in it and movies like Ironman with their one liner jokes dont help to get this thinking out of their heads.

just look at IM3. They made a joke out of mandarin to get quick laughs.

With all these goofy movies i`m happy there is Chris Nolan who doesnt use a comic book movie as a joke.

btw. i still like the marvel movies ( thor not so much) but the batman movies were a breath of fresh air

(sry dont know how to say it in english^^)

Is the rating that RT & a a pick & choose selection of film critics going to have an impact on your opinion on whether or not you like the film..?

No idea. I honestly don't think they have a overarching plan and are shooting from the hip.

just watch the film yourselves guys... Seriously i used to obsess over Rottentomatoes rating, given that they don't add many reviews, they are biased towards some and they even ADD in and REPEAT reviews to count towards negative or positive.

Like or dislike the film on your own terms. I just want them to make more, I enjoyed this film that much

This.

Most of the fanboys on here for months were saying things like "Cavill is gonna be THE Superman, he's not skinny like Chris Reeve was" and "I think Amy will be better than any Lois that came before her, unlike margot kidder she will blah blah blah"

Now its a problem when critics do it? LOL.
