Why critics with Rotten Tomatoes are one of the worst sources for film review. This website ruins cinema image more than not.

>>>Do yourself an awesome favor -- first professional test
Go watch these films:
DUNE (1984) = 57%
STARGATE (1994) = 46%
JOHN CARTER (2012) = 51%
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (2017) = 83%
GODZILLA (2014) = 74%
Last, compare to JUPITER ASCENDING (2015) = 26%.
When completed, tell me which of these movies are critically the most underdeveloped narratives. Be objective and honest.
I argue JUPITER ASCENDING (2015) is every bit as good as GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 (2017) and GODZILLA (2014) or better than. Maybe not as popular, for being a new idea.
OR try this other film challenge...
STAR WARS VIII: THE LAST JEDI (2017) = 90%
GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017) = 45%
ALIEN: COVENANT (2017) = 68%
Which 2 of the 3 movies are stronger developed stories?
>>>Take a break -- second professional challenge
Go watch these films:
MAN OF STEEL (2013) = 55%
BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (2016) = 27%
GREEN LANTERN (2011) = 26%
IRON MAN 3 (2013) = 80%
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (2015) = 75%
THOR (2011) = 77%
Which of these film blocks are collectively stronger as a whole?
I argue GREEN LANTERN (2011) is good as IRON MAN 3 (2013) or THOR (2011) -- but look at that massive score difference.
Have critics been conditioned to worship MARVEL?
DAWN OF JUSTICE: ULTIMATE CUT slays THOR (2011), and even the DAWN OF JUSTICE: THEATRICAL CUT is as creative or equally better than -- another miscalculated score indifference.
Hero for hero, Villain for villain. Is the DCEU not close equals?
It does affect box office and many people's mental perception.
Our movie industry works as a community, not separate. We can be more professional and fair as a collective business.
I believe "popularity of the crowd" or expensive VFX spectacle shine past "true grit originality" of well written film too often -- albeit simple as a children's tale, crime noir, or tragic theatre.
Then there's evil social media "inappropriation" which criminally slanders truth and reputation about movies and professionals.
Scarlett Johansson was auditioned and professionally hired to play "The Major" in GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017), but hateful and ignorant fans called it a "racist" decision against Asian actresses -- when such a discriminating accusal was illegally false.
This hurt both the film's financial, possible sequel, and Scarjo.
Scarlett was selected because of her international appeal, landmark experience, and theme related filmography. Fact.Truth.
Had GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017) been released in 1996 as is, we would be praising how awesome a live-action movie today in comparison, and another big reason I appreciate the retro fitted styles. It's actually film design ahead of the domestic curve.
Should studios/producers be allowed to sue against harmful and degrading video creators on YouTube, etc?
I do not believe in revenge. I believe in unity.
What happened to our educated society of film? _c.
