    Now I just wanna make sure everyone got that:

    Who cares? Everybody can run to go see it, but it doesn't tell you how they feel about it after the lights come on.

    My point was they need 5 qualifiers to make a record

    Update 'Captain Marvel' Bombed On Rotten Tomatoes. Now The Site Is Doing This To Stop 'Trolls.'

    By Amanda Prestigiacomo - The Daily Wire




    Feminist-hyped flick "Captain Marvel,” starring Woke actress Brie Larson, completely bombed in audience feedback on movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

    “Trolls” engaging on Rotten Tomatoes, not a dissatisfied audience, are apparently responsible for the low scores, according to the site. The unusually high (and negative) number of reviews on opening day was used to evidence such a narrative.

    And in an effort to save "Captain Marvel" from such low audience scores, Rotten Tomatoes disabled visitors from rating their excitement about the flick pre-premiere and purged tens of thousands of bad reviews post-premiere.

    But the desired outcome has still not been reached. "Captain Marvel" is sitting at a disappointing 63% audience rating, though that is significantly up from the 35% rating it hovered around on opening day.

    The site’s newest initiative to assist the female-led film concerns common visitors having to somehow verify that they've seen the movie before they are allowed to leave a review. The Hollywood Reporter reported Wednesday:

    A rep for the website now tells The Hollywood Reporter that additional measures are being considered in terms of audience reviews. Namely, a user may be asked to verify that he or she has seen the film in question before being allowed to post a critique. (It is unclear what that prompt would look like in practice.)

    Dana Benson, a top communications representative for Fandango (parent company of Rotten Tomatoes), told The Hollywood Reporter, ”We are disappointed that there was a group of people who were obviously very passionate and who had a negative opinion of the movie, whether they saw it or not.”

    Benson noted that there is a wipe gap between the critics’ review score and the general audience, which the site hopes to alleviate. ”We are in the middle of evolving the audience score. We want to ensure its credibility,” she said.

    On Wednesday, the critics’ review of “Captain Marvel” — which has remained a steady since the film’s opening — is 16 percentage points higher than the audience review; 79% and 63% respectively.

    In February, Rotten Tomatoes disabled visitors from scoring their excitement about the film after “Captain Marvel’s” “Want to See” score dropped to a dismal 27%.

    "As of February 25, we will no longer show the ‘Want to See’ percentage score for a movie during its pre-release period. Why you might ask? We’ve found that the ‘Want to See’ percentage score is often times confused with the ‘Audience Score’ percentage number. (The ‘Audience Score’ percentage, for those who haven’t been following, is the percentage of all users who have rated the movie or TV show positively – that is, given it a star rating of 3.5 or higher – and is only shown once the movie or TV show is released.),” said a post from Rotten Tomatoes, adding: “We are disabling the comment function prior to a movie’s release date. Unfortunately, we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership.”

    The film’s star, actress Brie Larson, branded “Captain Marvel” as a “big feminist movie” and vowed that the press junket for the movie would not be “overwhelmingly white male.”

    The Hollywood Reporter noted that ratings for Black Panther and the all-female Ghostbusters reboot were similarly hit by “trolls” looking to sandbag the films.

    There's always a wide gap between the critic's score and the audience's. That's nothing new. Critics are out of touch.

    This is the problem though:

    How are they going to prove which reviews are false? How do you know that you can trust any score or rating on that site anymore? "Evolving the audience score" is not a good thing by any stretch.

    Same thing with IMDB. Lots of instances of at least four glowing reviews from production trolls that skew the overall score if only five people have reviewed up to that point. I used to rely on that site to get a general idea of how movies are.

    No, it's not. That just means you can't trust the site and everybody will have to go elsewhere for their reviews and ratings. They'll kill their own site traffic.

    I went and saw this earlier in the week. It was an okay movie, but I likely won't watch it again (unlike other marvel movies).

    Disney Lying About Captain Marvel Box Office Numbers?

    More controversy hits the net surrounding Captain Marvel as it is suggested that Disney may be faking the numbers and lying about the film's high box office reported to be $153 million domestically, with a $455.7 million global haul.

    Users on social media have been posting screenshots of their local movie theaters where screenings for Captain Marvel are empty. I can also add that none of my local theaters had sold out shows, including the Thursday previews, with 3D screenings being particularly empty (that I noticed).

    Conservative author Jack Posobiec, who called for the Captain Marvel boycott, posted the following video on Twitter which has received nearly 50k views, questioning, "What is going on here?"



    The video shows screenshots from Twitter users who note, "Here's my local theater on Friday night before 10:20 Captain Marvel showing. Wow!"

    Another user posted, "The three Saturday evening showings for my local are almost empty. Identity politics marketing, Brie Larson, rumors of Captain Marvel being hamfisted into Endgame over established characters, it's killed any buzz ."

    "I'm really not complaining but three Star Wars movies and now Captain Marvel in empty cinema. This must be how Bob Iger lives life!!" another added about the Disney CEO.

    "Advantage of not working Fridays: almost empty cinemas for Captain Marvel. Hell, yes!" says another.

    "Parking lot for Captain Marvel 90% empty today. Just like it was Thursday at 7 theaters I checked when the media lied and said it did $20 million. Thank u next!" another fan tweeted.

    While it is unknown if Disney is actually lying about the box office numbers, the Hollywood trade site Deadline did fib about the flick's initial numbers when it claimed Captain Marvel brought in over $160 million in an attempt to put down the "trolls." The site also initially reported the Chinese box office numbers incorrectly as they reported it to be the #2 MCU movie in China, but it actually came in at #3 (and now it is learned it is fading fast in China). Obviously, Deadline was spinning the numbers to make Captain Marvel look a lot better than it is to create hype in an attempt to get more people to see the movie -- just like I said they were doing, while I reported the correct numbers.

    Prior to the film's release also saw the movie review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, run by a former Disney exec, turn off users' ability to rate and comment on the movie. Rotten Tomatoes also restarted the Audience Score following Captain Marvel's release while it was at an all-time low.

    I do have some friends that run large movie theaters, so I'll see if I can find any info on the Captain Marvel sales and report back.
