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.

Some men just want to see their own review burn.

Look the guy has okey reviews but compared to Avengers Spiderman this is a low blow dissing normal moviegoers and fans, everyone buying into this batman films. Travis I read the full review. I had 20 points at what a low blow his review was but I stopped at five points lol.

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 see 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 named Bane, who broke Batmans 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???

He did't buy the whole dark knight world as well, dusting 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. Another jab at the moviegoers that watches the series like he can't freaking believe people would actually see the sequel of the crap he reviewed before 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 claiming it's an adventure movie lol I guess 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

This coming from an individual who gave positive reviews to the avengers and the amazing spider-man... either you have a biased opinion against dc comics or you must be the stereotypical debbie downer of critics who favors overrated films. Not to mention, you also gave a fresh review for the third installment of men in black.. I'll end on that note. Enough said, you suck

The problem is he should have never have needed to remove it because of winy fanboys. Fanboys need to accept difference of opinion sometimes even if the review might have been stupid.

Haha. I agree that that seems absurd (even though I haven't watched it nor have you) but he did it anyways so you should get over it and just enjoy the movie that you are anticipating. What matters is your opinion at the end.

No it really doesn't. Unless insane Nolan fanboys think there should be no free speech? I hope RT stick to their guns and don't cave in to the pressure of morons like the original reviewer did.

You idiot! How dare you compare the genius that is Christopher Nolan to the utter hack that is Michael Bay? You are a blasphemous snob that really shouldn't be reviewing movies here. I'm typically not one for insulting people for their taste in movies, but this just gets me really, really ANGRY!

It was a bad review. Period. The guy can't watch a film without going in with a biased opinion. If you idiots that say "ooh, he's entitled to his opinion" would just grasp the concept then perhaps you wouldn't be such a troll. If I "hate" SpiderMan and the spiderman comics then I would realize it and watch the film version and grade it on its attributes. In other words, the direction, the acting, the editing, the story line, etc.
I would then base it on that. Not come out of the gate with some assholish and snide comments about the director and his fanbase.

This is that FAKE reviewer that Rotten Tomatoes was talking about on Twitter. The reviewer doesn't even have a link to his full review.

I am a huge Transformers fan, probably more than Marshall and I won't even disrepect myself as a movie guru by saying that stupid crap!

Us "normal movie goers" can't grasp the complexity of Marshall's review. Damn us normal average folk!

Never take a critics word who enjoyed The Lucky One(Zac Efferon), disliked Mission Impossible 3 for having a choppy pace(?), and thinking the saving Grace to Safe House was the relentless script?
