    That is where I was at with Arrival. It has a 94% rating over there and to me it was a huge disappointment even though in the end I appreciated the film just not nearly as much as I thought.

    Updates are maybe slow, anywhoo you can't really take those votes seriously, everyone can vote and some reviews suggest that they haven't even seen it. JUst wait till we get 10k or 100k votes.

    I bet, especially after films like Batman v Superman, a lot of critics are going to try to bank on being one of the first negative reviews out there, in the hopes that they draw attention and perhaps even sway public opinion. It's unfortunate, and a I think kind of destroys the purpose of reviews (in that they should be honest reactions to a product or service, rather than attention grabbing clickbait meant to drum up views). I think I'm more than capable of deciding for myself whether or not I like a film- and honestly, 80 (or as it is currently, 82) is not at all a bad score, especially for something like a standalone Star Wars film.

    I'm hesitant to comment until I see it but I will just say this:
    Ghostbusters
    Suicide Squad
    RT scores are averages and averages favor 50% both ways. I saw in June 3 negative reviews cancel out 14 positive reviews and still do damage on TFA'S critic score.

    I'm surprised by that score but Rotten Tomatoes are never one to be trusted with reviews, they always look for faults with ones that bring huge hype.

    I'm not concerned at all, for these reasons:
    1) Rotten Tomato scores do not accurately reflect the quality of a film. It seems like every Marvel movie will end up in the 90% range and every romantic comedy will end up in the 40s or lower (regardless of movie quality.)
    2) Most of the reviews haven't come in yet. I'm sure the score will get bumped up with additional reviews.
    3) It's the box office intake that matters most to Disney. Pirates 3 and 4 got dismal reviews but they're happy because 3 made almost a billion bucks and 4 did over a billion.
    4) I'm glad it's at 80% This indicates that some reviewer might feel a little uncomfortable/wary about this new type of story. In other words, Gareth Edwards is taking creative risks and I love it!

    Man, that article on The New Yorker was scathing. I guess I can't really debunk it yet, since I haven't seen the movie yet, but there's no way R1 is that bad. The writer sounded incredibly jaded and melodramatic.

    What truly
    I looked through his reviews and his taste in films differs significantly from other critics, so I wouldn't worry to much about his opinion. Additionally, there's another criitc writing for the New Yorker who's more attuned to my taste, so I'd rather wait for his review to come out.

    Oh yeah, taking a look at his "The Best Movies of 2016" shows that he's a pretty elitist reviewer. I guess Mas Amedda wouldn't like Rogue One and its anti-Imperial propaganda...

    Wow. The New York Times and The New Yorker reviews are.......hateful.

    In the style that seems to be simply for attention.

    I generally do find I like films in that 80% to 90% range, but I do acknowledge a lot of points about films that appeal to a wider audience. However, I very rarely enjoy movies that received bad reviews. One of the few exceptions was "tideland" by Terry Gilliam.

    One concern I have is if people say that casual fans or kids might not like it as much, that some of the people I bought tickets for might not like it (my wife, some friends, and my daughter's friends... I guess we'll see!)

    I thought TFA deserved it's 90-ish % score, I still really enjoy it and rank it in the top 3 of all time. Well anyways, I'm real jazzed about Rogue One, although the one I'm really waiting for is Episode 8 (lol).

    Critics and politicians...
    Do a favor to yourselves and don't listen to both of them.

    Unless the politician is called Sheev. In that case watch him closely. That guy might be up for something...
