(This part is mostly rant, so skip below if you want my actual argument)
Sure...if you want to know if the movie you are about to pay for was enjoyed by someone you don't know. That's fine. Do we really need them though? No...but if we did then we surely wouldn't need their 'critiques' before the movie. These morons don't deserve an early screening...do you think they do? I see no logical arguments constructed about plot details because its mostly incoherent banter about stuff like ...
Its got action...cries
Its got a blurry scene...cries
It is dark...cries
It didn't make me chuckle at times...cries
I see action (in a superman film)...cries
He didn't rescue a cat from a tree and make me feel warm...cries
The superman didn't make me laugh...cries
(All real critiques I've seen from the rotten reviews)
Their 'reviews' consist mostly of childish tantrums regarding minor details...whilst completely ignoring the rest of the movie. They say stuff like ...Superman looked like Jesus in one scene. I don't usually advocate using stuff like subliminal messages in films/television, but Jor-El clearly stated in the trailer that "He will be a God to them"...Hmmm lets think of a fairly well known God...maby Jesus?!? Of course they portray Superman like a God...he IS basically a God, so why complain about such a scene with a time span of 5-8 seconds anyways. These critics seam to whine about everything besides the plot, and the way it is set up. Critics ignore the fact that they had to create/edit characters so that they fit in 'almost' perfectly within the flow of the film. All of that work (which is a VERY small sample of it) has gone completely overlooked by these so called critics.
( Actual argument )
You might say..."but their supposed to critique"...in which I respond... "Then critique, and construct a logical argumentation that doesn't include stomping your feet and turning red faced over little details you see on the surface...try looking at the plot and they way it allows for other films (which has been confirmed), Superman is a story and not just one film. Think about the process of storytelling through film and the fact that its supposed to be an 'origin' story...which includes ALOT of other detail if you actually bothered looking at the screen , and listened to them speaking, at the same time, instead of throwing your histy fit" In any event... I suppose it isn't even worth commenting on this site anymore due to its ever growing reputation for providing a shear lack of accuracy. Everyone has at least one film that has been rated low for idiotic reasons. For some 'rotten' reviews the actual critique(s) of the film are very minor, and the review itself mostly consists of positive feedback (well over half of the review usually), yet it is rendered rotten for some reason. People have witnessed this time and time again. I use Man of Steel to express these concerns about the site, but this type of BS has occurred many a time with numerous other films. The tomatometer has 'too' much influence for its relative accuracy. If a movie seams interesting to you, then shouldn't you see it based off of that logic...(rather than this 'tomatometer') ...why do people let this tomatometer decide what to enjoy (It implies good/bad, does it not?).
