because sometimes art isn't meant for you, but rather to be admired.

This is a rotten. He even listed it as one of the worst movies of October

What a hypocrite. If that's so then why would he give it a 7/10?

Saying it's the worst movie of the month but giving it a 7/10 is pretty stupid -_-

2.5/4 is not 7/10
And that's the one rating that can fluctuate between rotten and fresh depending on how the review is written. In this case, it comes across rotten more than it does fresh.

It's most likely the site administrators not the critic.

This review should all be rotten if that's his actual rating.

2.5 or 4 is 62.5% which equals a red tomato. I agree the review has a negative feel to it overall though. Although, with Travers, 2.5 almost always shows up as fresh on this site. Meanwhile, with Ebert, a 2.5 always shows up as negative.

What a weird rating system, I can understand Ebert's better to be honest.

This movie is brilliant, not for everyone obviously from reading these supposed top critics. This movie will go down as a classic in a similar way the Matrix has ,yet was also initially panned by many critics. This movie resonates with more open minded freethinkers but regardless is beautiful and entertaining and reinforces my opinion that most top critics are too jaded to be trusted. Last time I felt this moved by a movie was Slumdog Millionaire and it did ok.

It will very likely not go down as a classic.

I beg to differ, although masterpiece definitely not. I personally see a difference between a classic and a masterpiece.

Just watch it again, and this time think. This movie has been made a million times by Hollywood executives and does nothing to break convention.

i think what is astonishing, is not how horrible this film is, but how much effort people - those with nothing to lose or gain from it's failure or it's success, will extend to defend this Howard The Duck / Ishtar of a film.

That, in and of itself, is an epic achievement.

for me it is more surprising when someone spends energy putting something down when they have nothing to gain from its success or failure. to each their ownâ?¦ Cheers

If people keep praising movies like this, it'll be all we have left. We put energy into putting down bad movies in hopes people will look for substance instead of flash.
