    I try not to worry about these things.

    I love Batman V. Superman (Ultimate) - but I don't even think about its RT score. It exists. And I'm glad it does, and I love it.

    I just want this film to be received well enough and perform well enough that we get more films. That's all.

    Sign me up for a slow Batman movie that focuses on story and world building. As long as Reeves doesn't waste my time with 30 minutes of Snyder slow-mo footage than I'll be happy.

    It's truly not important. RT is basically irrelevant to me at this point.

    I do think this film is playing with fire with its runtime...the amount of critics I saw on Twitter lambasting the runtime def makes it seem like there could like there could be some impact there. If they don't send out screeners and make critics go to the theater, this seems to be another thing that ruffles feathers with certain critics.

    Which brings me back to the first point. It ultimately doesn't matter too much. Critics on the whole, are as biased and fickle as anyone. They're people. And Rotten Tomatoes/an aggregated score based on a binary system doesn't really concern me much anymore when it comes to movies I care about. Obviously you don't want to see this thing get BAD reviews like BvS to the point where it became a meme. But I don't think there's much of a real chance of that happening. That was very predictable based on Snyder's track record with critics. Reeves has two 90%+ blockbusters in his track record with his Apes films.

    I think it'd be great for comic book film fans to divorce themselves from caring about RottenTomatoes and MetaCritic.

    Because we're the audience that made them so relevant to begin with. The reason studios put "_____ has 88% on RottenTomatoes" is because of our demographic's fixation on it.

    So, it's time to start undoing that.

    I've felt for years that it was unhealthy.

    Social will definitely lift earlier in the end. I'm guessing a week before the review date. It makes no sense to have both the same day because you need that second wave of buzz with the social and the third with the reviews.

    as much as anyone can say it won't affect their interest in the movie, rotten tomatoes (and other review aggregators) are incredibly important for the general audience (and even for a fan like me). the truth is, when you get a sample of a couple hundred reviews and high percentage (like say, 90%) generally like a movie, that's usually a pretty good indication of a movie's quality.

    looking forward to the embargo lifting on monday.

    Embargo watch should be pretty short I think. They have shown the movie to pretty much every kind of critic we can think of, from the trades, to big print publications, to YouTubers to fanboy blogs, and given all of them sufficient time to write the reviews so that everything drops on Monday morning.

    By 9:30am we should have 100+ reviews posted easily.

    It's of value to me cause it tends to lead to some fun threads. I love to cheer when a movie I'm looking forward to is well received, I love it when a fun bad movie gets chewed on critically, and I love it when a bad bad movie gets chewed on critically and people share their dismay before I watch it and it breaks my heart in turn.

    And I love looking at the certified fresh logo.

    All these things lead to some fun conversations.

    All of the film critics I like seem to be gushing over the movie (judging by their tweets).

    Last I checked, it started at 94% at 16 reviews. It’ll go down, but mighty impressive, I’ll say.

    Will likely settle in the mid-low 80s, when all is said and done.

    Great score after a good number of reviewers. Also 8.5 average score. Couldn’t have asked for any better than this.

    RT is bugging for some. It was 96%/71 reviews for me and it's at 94%/16 reviews now. :shrug:

    73 on Metacritic (Top Critics) so far through 36 reviews (which will top out over 50). That will drop the RT score slightly when some of those reviews get added. Still really good.

    Hmm 73 on Metacritic seems very low for my expectation. After that 96% with 8.5 rating after 71 reviews of RT, I expect Meta to be around 87 or 88 at early stage
