[VIDEO ESSAY] Sloppy in its construction, "Marvel's The Avengers" has one thing going for it - humor.
Of course you would dislike it, no shocker there.. >.>

They should take out his older reviews from RT
Apr 30 - 05:38 PM
Not Cole Smithey again.
Armond White gets kicked off Rotten Tomatoes for being a contrarian, but yet they still keep this "Armond White wanna-be" around?
"Toy Story 3" with Cole Smithey all over again.
You'd think after he gave "Hunger Games" a D+ score, he'd be kicked out too, but nope! Are they going to wait until after Cole gives "Dark Knight Rises" another rotten score before they kick him out?
Step your game up RT. You kick one contrarian reviewer out, but you still leave a couple here like Cole Smith and Sam Bathe to post their garbage around.
It's sad when the audience knows more about the reviewers than RT does.
But I'm glad he gave it a bad rating which means the film is actually superb.

And Cabin in the Woods: D+ for an 90% RT film. He just has a habit of drawing attention to himself (and we, me included, are giving him this attention by making all these comments :P) by lambasting movies with large (or loyal) audiences that have strong critical consensus.

Actually Armond was never "kicked off" of Rotten Tomatoes. He left New York Press and since RT allows reviewers based on viewership, Armond now is rated on his new blog. So it's quite possible that if he gets popular enough he could be back on RT ruining scores all over again.

The thing is though, the plot of Toy Story 3 was truly awful. (Great animation, though.) It didn't help that that kids movie was chock full of unnecessary sexual innuendos, a full-time sociopath (Lotso), and horror scenes.
There were only three critics that got Toy Story's rating right, but of those three, Smithey was the only one (in my opinion) who was able to properly back up why he thought it was so bad.
I've noticed that Cole Smithey does seem to care more about plot than most--and Avengers, while also good to look at, and hilarious, had a poor excuse for a plot.
May 9 - 02:09 PM
Oh i remeber you. Haha. Why an I not surprised. I see you ruining quiet a few movies lol. It was going to gappen either way. Nost of us will disagree with you anyways, hopefully
Apr 30 - 12:06 PM
Am* happen* most*
Apr 30 - 12:09 PM
He's just trying to get more site traffic.
May 1 - 12:10 AM
what an arsehole you have no taste in decent movies
Apr 30 - 12:07 PM
Who the hell is Cole Smithey? Anyways, pointless, movies already been certified Fresh noob.
As a side note, how can this be Rotten when he didn't' even rate the damn film?
Apr 30 - 12:10 PM
he gave it a C+
Apr 30 - 07:52 PM
I expect this drivel from someone who's site says they are the smartest film critic in the world. I bet you talk about yourself in the third person...
Apr 30 - 12:08 PM
Cole is just too cool for the Avengers, I see...
prepare for the incoming backlash Mr.Smithey....u loser!!! ;)
this is going to be funny :)
Apr 30 - 12:13 PM
i came here to read all the comments too lol.
Apr 30 - 07:57 PM
This comment has been removed.
Hey now! We gay guys don't want him credited to our team either. Who says he's not a pretentious carpet muncher?
Apr 30 - 09:19 PM
It would be easier to accept your review if there was a minute bit of proof you paid any attention to the film, or any other prior films related to the Heroes at hand. This is proven by you referring to S.H.I.E.L.D as The Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate instead of the recent incarnation where it means the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. The name was the butt of jokes in the Iron Man films, did you not pay attention? How can you expect people to take you seriously when youâ??re providing incorrect information? What...A...Joke!
Apr 30 - 12:18 PM
Yeah, and the whole point of that running joke is that the name is impossible to remember. Your point? What SHIELD stands for has changed multiple times in the comics, he probably googled it and got an older answer.
Apr 30 - 12:39 PM
Why are you so up in arms to protect this guy? He's proven time and time again he's a hack. This time I called him on something and you're whining because it was once called that. That's the problem buddy, don't review something unless you know what you're talking about. If I can remember it and it's not my job, why can't he when it is his job?
Apr 30 - 02:02 PM
In Your Dreams
No, what are YOU up in arms about? You're just butthurt somebody bashed your precious movie, for which you will accept NO dissenting opinions. Shame on YOU, and others like you, for attacking negative reviews like it makes a difference. It doesn't. It's Cole's opinion and he's entitled to it. Any criticism to the contrary can just as easily be leveled at YOU, the retarded fanboy.
Apr 30 - 07:49 PM
dont listen to these people .. they want to be in the minority with the little trolls and protect them like obviously we backlash cuz you are giving a bad review to a movie that is obviously epic in every sense ... if he is one of only 3 people who rate it rotten and the other 75 reviews are fresh, he the critic should take a look at himself in the mirror and try to figure out whats wrong with himself
May 1 - 01:44 AM
Nelson, I would like to introduce you to the concept of grammar.
May 1 - 09:28 AM
still %100 positive from Top Critics
Apr 30 - 12:22 PM
He never was a top critic
Apr 30 - 12:55 PM
he was this morning when they uploaded his review...then 5min later he was moved
Apr 30 - 02:16 PM
i really dont think he was ever a top critic
May 3 - 06:17 AM
I like how he rated the Hunger Games such a low score yet gives Project X a B-.
You have very poor tast and happen to be the biggest tool bag on the planet. It would be a shame if you got cancer. Lol no it wouldn't.
Bad form dude. I agree that Hole Smitey is a douchtard looking for attention by giving negative reviews but wishing cancer on him is a little too far out of line. Just wish he gets Herpes of the mouth from blowing Armond White, that's sufficient.
Apr 30 - 08:10 PM
Apr 30 - 11:05 PM
im kinda wishing there was a 'like' here right now... well said lol
May 3 - 06:20 AM
if he got cancer, his tumor would probably replace him on this site and give good movies good reviews to prove it is killing a troll
May 1 - 01:46 AM
Cole Smithey is hilariously bad. Anyone who proclaims to be the "Smartest Film Critic in the World!" is automatically not.
Honestly! The very idea of him!
Apr 30 - 12:23 PM
I never knew about this hack until The Hunger Games. After reading his review of that movie I knew that he was just an arrogant prick who calls himself a critic. Of course everybody is entitled to their opinion, but at least use constructive criticism not the bullshit you spit out and later call it a review.
Apr 30 - 12:25 PM
Why do people even care. There are 60+ reviews now with a whole total of 3 not liking the movie. I think thats all you need to know. This movie will finish above 90 percent and maybe over 93
Apr 30 - 12:28 PM
Yeah, a billion dollars later and fanboyism in Hollywood is over. This guy is a joke and his review should be viewed as such.
Apr 30 - 12:30 PM
Rocky Collado II
"fanboy culture is dead" ?? is this guy kidding?
the avengers is bigger than this joke of a reviewer. he's the kind of nightmare critic that just wants to use big words and talk shit to look cool.
i bet he hates iphones coz everyone has one. i bet he hated the internet when it first came out too.
take off the sunglasses ya douchebag! you're indoors!
