Her opinion is valuable if only to let you know whatever film she says is crap, you're going to love

She tweeted:

"These blueberry pancakes are 96% delicious"

So now she is having a private laugh at knocking the film out of 100% and flipping a bird at the fans?

Thats just low and shows how unprofessional she is It also appears she gave all marvel films rotten scores yet she gave green lantern fresh?

Clearly MS.Nicholson has an agenda.

Enjoy your 10mins of negative fame troll. Boxoffice mag will get no attention from me in future.

She only gets "negative fame" because idiot fanboys give it to her. In the days before people obsessed over perfect RT scores, this would have gotten no reaction.

Guess what guys? Critics don't care what you think! Amy didn't write this review to piss you off, she wrote it because that was her opinion.

I don't think that anyone here is truly angry that Ms. Nicholson has an opinion.

It's just that - cycling through her opinions - they seem uniformly informed by poor taste at best and stupidity at worst. In such she's getting paid to troll her own readers.

i would contend though that the whole point of her review was to get attention to her review and had nothing to do with her opinion. She probably nitpicked and gave the appearance of a legit negative review. Her twitter post cements this idea. Also check out her track record on reviews. If she was tough on movies thats fine but when she gives positive reviews to movies that arent good then she is doing the same thing but just going at it from the opposite angle

I respect your opinion. But don't you feel lonely? Every other critic agrees there's more good than bad going on with this flick. Did you really think it was poor?

I'll grant that it's a little baffling that 3/5 is considered "rotten," when even other movies she's rated 3/5 get a fresh rating, but reading the full review really does say to me that she didn't like it. Based on her review it probably should've been a 2/5.

That being said, it's downright foolish to say "There's not enough back story for these characters." That's like saying Empire Strikes Back didn't have enough character back story. This movie is, for all intents, a sequel to each of the individual heroes' movies mashed into one big movie, so a lengthy back story for each character would be completely unnecessary. If Joss did that, the movie would either have to be 5 hours long or nothing but character development. Neither one really sounds that appealing to me.

The response level to this review is aproximately (going by pages) two-ninths of maximum rage if maximum rage is Armond White's TS3 review.

Well... just by her giving the movie Birdemic a positive rating, she dumb. Birdemic is considered one of the worst movies ever made. So yea this chick needs a reality check.

Looking at her reviews I honestly don't think she sees the movies she reviews...she just reads the press releases and keeps the money they gave her for drinks and candy....

This is fresh. Idc if the review explains it to be rotten, if it gets 3/5 stars its fresh!!

I think you need to just give up on writing reviews, or... no yeah just give up.

"Forget character developmentâ??there's not even character explanation." I mean come one! Thats why they made each character a damn movie, so they wouldn't have to do character explanation.

Over all, this review and some of the other reviews you wrote just make me sick.

I love her picture. It's like she's trying to hide from shame.

Did I really expect The Avengers to get 100%? No. I can't see that ever happening, But the most maddening thing is the way it went down. The review makes no sense and is clearly the work of someone with an agenda (Whether it be anti-marvel, or just felt like being a troll who knows)

She also tweeted that she was going to have to flip a coin as to whether or not the review was rotten or fresh.

Um Maybe if you don't have a strong opinion about it either way don't stick your filthy nose in it? If you can see a movie and can't make up your mind without flipping a coin maybe you should get a new job like making sandwiches or something.

Hey sweetheart Go back home and watch your crappy movies because you will be pegged with rotten tomatoes for the rest of your life... This movie will be the movie event of the year... and its legacy will live further than any other Superhero movie ever.. hard work and great actors have gone into making this movie.. more planning than any movie series ever made! the crossover which could have been a disaster turned out to be a magnificent combination.
The Acting was Flawless. The FX were Brilliant.
Maybe you should do your homework before writing something like this..

Yeah then everyone would just flame the reviewers who hate the movies they love regardless of how well written the review may be.

Comes with the territory, but I don't think in this case it's out of line. Do you honestly think that this was a legitimate review? If a reviewers opinion is used to make or break box office sales, (and in case you're wondering, they are,) then a certain amount of integrity needs to exist in said reviews. Likewise, when that integrity is lacking, than by all means we should call a spade a spade.

His point is that this review is neither well written or well thought out. I have to agree with him.

Like everyone else, I'm kinda curious as to how a 3/5 score is considered 'rotten'?
