    To be honest, when I read the grizzly bear scene description like two weeks ago, I wasn't digging it.

    Psylockolussus...did you see the conversation we've been having? RT have yet to post tons of positive reviews.

    Yup, I know that. I noticed the movie hasn't been reviewed by a "top critic". So there's still hope! With 11 reviews in, anything can still happen.

    Way too early to tell. I think Fox breaking its review embargo is a good sign, though. All in all, I'm having De Ja Vu and the conversation here is reminding me of the MOS boards when reviews began to come out.

    For me, Man of Steel is a tough film to beat, but I'd love to be surprised by The Wolverine.

    The concern I have about Viper is that her voice sounded replaced (ADRed probably) from Eastern Europe originally, to faux-British, to American sounding in the video marketing. I didn't watch the featurette and really have no idea what the hell I'm in for. I'm not asking for a response here just making an observation.

    ['The Wolverine'] is a neat trick. But don't get too excited.

    LOL @ that being considered as fresh. Watching this RT rating go up and down is frustrating. I guess I just want this movie to be seen as a good movie and if The Wolverine has a fresh rating that it at least 70%, people would consider it as a good film.

    alright of the ratings have been very favorable but they all have the same complaint in that the 3rd act is the weakest

    Screencrush got added as a positive because they were genuinely impressed by the route they went with in The Wolverine.

    A lot of people say that the third act turns too "comic booky", and contrasts the tone it set in the beginning.

    RT doesn't decide whether or not a review goes up as "fresh" or "rotten". The critic tells RT how to list it.

    It amazes me how with every movie this needs to be explained. Surely people will catch on eventually? :D

    I'd like to think that now all the negative UK reviews we were already aware of have been added, things should get back to fresh.

    They won't. It's a never ending cycle. If RT really had all of the sinister agendas they've been accused of, they could have taken over the world 10 times over by now.

    One of my friends sent me this on FB. Cannot stop laughing. :lmao:

    This is the greatest thing ever. When they started doing "The Music of the Night" I lost it completely. :funny:

    I am curious to see what Empire's review will go down as, or rather what they want it to go down as. It was a pretty middle of the road review so it could be negative or positive. I would like to see the RT rating go up though.

    Metacritic right now is at 42 with all mixed reviews, no positive or negative. This movie is definitely split down the middle.

    The main critiques seem to be that the 3rd act falls apart (and doesn't fit the tone of the rest of the movie. And Viper sucks ass. :o Let's hope Viper isn't in it that much... LOL
