Tomatometer predictions?

Here's what I am predicting

45%
'Although Smith does his best with what he is given to work with and it's superior to most other M. Night films, it ultimately fails due to weak CGI and a lousy direction from M. Night."

Star Trek ID was also bad. You all went to see that mess. This movie has been making bank overseas. I am so glad the majority of those movie goer's do not speak English. If they did, you stupid Americans would talk them out of seeing this movie.

Go See this movie. I know you all think that if you don't, Will Smith will suddenly go broke, but you are wrong. This movie was as bad as TED and Ted was give reviews, Sop If you went to see TEDF. you owe yourself another punishment by checking this movie out. I did n't love it, but I walked out on TED.

I saw the movie yesterday and I liked it and the audience clapped at the end. Saw Fast and Furious last week, no one clapped at the end, but it was a good movie. Star Trek Into Darkness was applauded. I spend almost every weekend at the movies and After Earth was pretty good compared to some movies money is wasted on such as Hangover III. The movie was reintroducing Jaden Smith to the world since he has not been seen since Karate Kid. He has grown up quite a bit. The movie was about a young boy becoming a man. Will Smith was exploring his relationship with his son and how a father is suppose to be there, maybe this will inspire some fathers. Will Smith wrote a very good story. As much time as I spend at the movies, I know a crappy movie when I see one and After Earth is not one.

Before this movie came out, I saw people slamming it. They hadn't seen it, and they were panning it. Not because it was a bad movie (they hadn't seen it!) but because they were angry that Will Smith created a movie that has his son in it.

There are people who are upset at the idea that Jaden Smith and/or Willow Smith are being raised in the "family business." Then again, there are people who think the Smith kids are spoiled and ill-mannered, which is amazing, because there isn't a single video clip or industry rumor that even suggests that these kids are anything other than polite, funny, and smart (both of them able to speak other languages).

So yes. There's something suspicious when you see a well-balanced, polite, funny, NICE - G E N U I N E L Y nice Hollywood family get constantly slammed. I can't help but think that if they were blonde-haired and blue-eyed, with the same qualities of being nice, charming, polite, etcetera, that more people would be praising them as the model of a how a Hollywood family should be.

Is Leonard Maltin's review really "rotten"?

The representative excerpt/blurb commends Jaden's acting and makes a reference to the filming of "lush" locations.

I skimmed the full review, and Maltin ends with: "As a juvenile adventure yarn, After Earth is adequate but hardly inspired. It may satisfy undemanding moviegoers but it won?t add luster to anyone?s career."

It doesn't really read like a rotten review to me. I don't really care about the movie or the review, but I DO care about whether reviews like this are counted as "rotten" with respect to reviews of other films; it would totally change the perception, significance, and integrity of fresh/rotten scores, in my opinion.

All of SHAMalan's movies suck, INCLUDING Sixth Sense and Signs; when will people learn? The ONLY movie he's made that I thought was alright was Unbreakable, and it has been a cliffdive from there. I have a boycott against this horrid director, and I wish everyone else did too, as he is taking perfectly good ideas such as this movie, and turning them into crap.

Well, I said it would be a big hit or a flop. Now it seems that it is both. Who would have guessed? It is a flop with the critics and a hit with moviegoers. I don?t believe I have seen such a gulf between the moviegoers and the critics since ?Star Wars.? So why did the Critics hammer it so hard? Well, they were expecting Shyamalan to bring his particular brand of direction to the movie and therefore pick it apart based on his brand of movie making and discovered that Shyamalan was nowhere to be seen. What we are seeing is an acquiescent Shyamalan who has lost his focus as a director. Part of that problem is that Shyamalan has always done his best when he is in sharp focus and doing more with the bare minimum. When given too much he falls apart and becomes disjointed and out of focus. In this movie M Night Shyamalan was not to be seen. What I find interesting is critics will all focus on one particular aspect of the movie, or find a particular fault as to why the movie doesn?t work. However, in this case their opinions seem to be wide and differing. More to the point there is very little in the way of critical evaluation. Reading the critics reviews you almost get the impression that they had all watch a different movie or simply didn?t care to go see it. Is it a great movie? No, not really. Is it a flop? No it isn?t a bad movie, it manages to keep its legs under it and carry it you through to the end, but it isn?t an over the top, in your face, all out edge of your seat experience.

Hey losers, the audience ratings were high on the opening day, its now 51% only and would even drop more. Shame on you for saying that the fucking critics are more reliable than the audience. The problem is with RT, had the RT staff counted all the audience vote in time, then it would never have been shown that this film had 83% audience rating.

Jun 3 - 10:29 PM

OK Critics are more reliable than users to certain people, like me. Also, it had a high rating because everyone who was anticipating it saw it first and people who didn't see it rated it 5 stars. Then people who didn't care for it as much saw it and it went down.

Tim, My family liked After Earth. Many so called "reviewers" have not even seen the film. We saw a so called reviewer on a huge national publication website and he said he wrote about the movie and he negatively spoke about After Earth. To write or comment negatively about a movie that you did not view entirely and to call yourself a reviewer is, to me, fraud.

So, is the 83% audience rating:
A. Scientologists giving it 5 stars regardless of whether they saw it or not.
B. A product of a particularly low-brow, easy-to-entertain overall group of attenders.
C. Genuine critical dissonance that would still exist if you made 1,000 random people watch and rate the movie.

In a billion dollar industry, with complete control over the tomatometer, Rotten Tomatoes, which is owned by Warner Brothers, realizes that it can't fudge the critics responses, but the audience responses can be altered, since they will never meet each other or have a voice in any way accept here in these posts, which half of a half of a percent of people will ever read. It's more important to get the money than be honest. A low audience rating could potentially equal a hundred million dollars or more in losses.

Considering Will Smith's coaching brought this kid to the level of just "cant act", imagine what he was beforehand. Nepotism is defined as "giving favors to relatives regardless of talent or merit". Between this smith kid, ella fanning, ashley simpson and all the other talentless family members being ushered into entertainment stealing jobs from true talent, I wouldn't pay one red cent towards this movie.

Can't believe Will Smith turned down Django Unchained to try and buy his son a movie career. Talk about a poor investment.

3% "Shyamalan has sunk to new lows, even by the standards of his other recent efforts." Was actually sort of hoping for a return to form but the fact that there are no reviews two days from opening does not bode well. I haven't actually seen one of his films since Signs though if The Village was playing on TV I might give it a look. And I did enjoy "Devil" which he wrote but didn't direct so perhaps he's competent as a writer but lost his mojo as a director.

"It's inarguably an improvement over Shyamalan's previous four films, but despite passable performances and tolerable action and effects (and no twist ending, much to our surprise), After Earth is blandly and thinly written, has an uninteresting story, and fails to live up to Will Smith's good films and M.

I think this thing can potentially hit 60% fresh, only because action movies are favored by critics on this site, and becsuse the movie has an obligatory father-son message. From what I've seen, though, it deserves 1%

Lorna Gomez Ponce

I have the feeling that the kid may have acting talent, but if the movie it's gonna rely just on "him and his father playing the CGI", it may not be a great thing to watch. Yeah, seems to be some drama aside about the relationship father and son, in fact, they are going to play with the possibility of Will dead on Earth to save his son. I think they might find some other people living on earth and there maybe it's something to keep up the plot.

I'm giving 32-40%. Becuase the kid is good, Will too, but the plot isn't. And about the director... I'm not really a fan of his, but I've seen The Village, I've enjoyed it, but with the Happening having a great cast, and Avatar with a great story, he somehow ruined both of them.

Travis--Bruce Willis pulled off "Sixth Sense" Are you saying that Will Smith is not up to the same challenge? M Night has a unusual vision when it comes to movie making, now lets just how versatile Smith really is. One thing for sure, there will be no middle ground "After Earth" will be great or it will tank. There will be no middle ground. It is going to depend on the amount of energy everyone brings to the effort.

M Night is not your average director so I don?t expect to see the average movie. I expect a difference, which is why I am attracted to M Night. He doesn?t do what is expected and for a number of meat and potatoes moviegoers who expect the script to go their way it isn?t always a good match up. One thing for sure M Night always swings for the fences and he does it with an unusual style. This is either going to be epic or it is going to tank, I doubt there is going to be any room for the middle ground.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say 70-80%. I think this is M.Night's comeback film. He's an intelligent director, he's had big misses but I think he's learned from his mistakes and with Will Smith and his son taking the reigns in this one it's hard for it to be an utter failure. Will Smith usually appears in above average movies. The only thing I'm a little concerned about is the CGI, I hope they polished it up because from the trailer it looked kind of like how I Am Legend's CGI was, which was dissappointing and ironically also starred Will Smith.
