Critic Review - Hollywood & Fine

At times, the action is so massive and thunderously clunky that I might as well have been watching one of the Transformers movies.

He isn't Travis, when his facts are wrong and his opinion is born out of hate and contempt...

A quote:
"There was nothing "honest" about that guy's review. He came out --from the very first paragraph-- attacking fans of Nolan as well as Nolan himself. It was a rage-filled review from the start and looked like it was written very specifically to stir up anger among readers. On top of that, the review was written like a 1st grader's hate note to a nagging bully. Extremely unprofessional."

I totally agree. This Mister Fine character needs to grow up and actually WATCH a movie then post an un-biased review.

BUT HE IS RIGHT!! How can I report this to Rotten Tomatoes he is absolutely right. In his other reviews please read the Avengers and The Amazing Spiderman he doesn't start of Ranting about how stupid and ignorant moviegoers planning to this film - thatt they can't read. I'm 28 and I felt offended reading that seriously.

In his others reviews they are usually okey. He usually starts off by saying nice things. Why start attacking the moviegoers calling them dumb sh*ts for watching this movie?

Here's how he started the Avengers review:

Heres the best thing I can say about The Avengers.....
Thankfully, there are other nice things to say about the Avengers......

How he started The Dark Knight Rises:
Anyone who pays attention to such things knows that, in the early 1990s, the Batman comic-book series featured a storyline with a super-villain actually, steroid-enhanced â?? named Bane, who broke Batmanâs back, turning him into a paraplegic (until he was eventually healed by paranormal means)

In other words: He starts with a negative statement that someone didnt read their comics and we as viewers/directors choice and direction is stupid because it does not follow comic books stories uhm Nolan's Batman films isn't grounded that much in the comics but he knew that right?

2) Respect normal moviegoers and fans by telling them what the movie offers.
An audience too young to have been born, let alone old enough to read (or willing to read, for that matter), when the Bane storyline first surfaced in print. Did he just insult the normal moviegoers and batman comic fans as being dumb? Less smart than he is... Thats an insult right there isnt it???

Did he just dust off Dark Knights sales with one lazy assumption that it won over the critics mostly because of a sizzling performance by Heath Ledger, who died before the movie was released and NOT because uuhhmmm.... shalll we say of what it offered normal moviegoers and fans thus the 1 billion dollars in ticket sales. Another jab at the moviegoers that watches the series like he can't freaking believe people would actually see crap like Dark Knight. How can Rotten Tomatoes allow this review in with the rest??

No hard feelings just some constructive respone to the whole discussion.

When someone is being condescending it's not right and not nice. And it shouldn't be in here. As for the film itself it's good and saying it's an adventure movie lol I guess he thought after batman begins, dark knight he thought the sun will rise in and Gotham turns into a colorful hobbit movie - since according to him it's missing adventure lol

The rest of us normal moviegoers and fans can go on have a blast seeing this movie :D

LOL watch this be the only guy to give the film a bad review preventing it from reaching 100%

I bet it'd get over like... 20 thousand comments.

If she gives valid criticisms then I'm fine...just don't get your facts wrong and attack the director and the movies fans...

She gave spider man a higher score. She needs to get back to the kitchen.

Only good here is RT gave it a fresh stamp.

Don't forget about Leonard Maltin. That mofo really disliked THE DARK KNIGHT, and he dislikes most of Nolan's work in general.

Out of respect for her, I advise she refrain from putting her review here. She'll most likely suffer a fate similar to Fine's, although not as bad since Fine's a douche who has the nuts to compare the masterful Batman to a shit sandwich like Transformers.

You can tell the guy wanted to hate the film before he even saw it. Before any of you want to comment on my comment, take a look at my profile pic, then go see TDKR, then come back and tell me I don't know anything about the film even though it has not been released yet.

LOL. He really has received death threats. There was an hour ago 2 negative reviews overral. The other one said that this is the worst Batman film to date and he even included Batman & Robin. HAHAHA and now it's been removed.

That comment was a joke to see how many people would attack the reviewer. He didn't actually see the movie and said it will probably be great.

I have the urge to do a Joker laugh and say "Why so serious?" to the Nolanites if it does.

Some people will like a film, some won't. Deal with it. So idiotic people rise to the bait of an attacking review, by posting death threats to it. These aren't the real fans, they're morons. They need to grow the hell up. This type of behaviour paints the real fans in a bad light.

Jul 16 - 01:23 PM

In honesty quoting lines from this very movie and spouting over the top rhetoric shouldn't be considered death threats...this is the internet you know...now if it was done by mail or notes left at his house? That's a threat...
