OH, PLEASE DO inform me then.... unlike others who want to correct me, they usually post information which backs them up. ;)
Don't ever change! I like you fine the way you are. So there's no need to stop disseminating incorrect information on my account! (y)

Although, if you're going to publish pure FUD, you should probably ask first. (Not that I would, but others should likely hold themselves to higher standards than I hold myself). :D

Either way, thanks... I like you just the way you are, too. <3

Edit: I saw your edit, and in turn I'll edit mine. There. That's it. Hope you like it. :)

If I'm wrong about something. I DO like to be informed, and I do like to learn. On the other hand, I really dont take these comments too seriously, (who would?!) but I've learned a thing or two spreading some "pure FUD." Besides, most of what I post is opinion based... so... yea
 
Regardless of the reviews, I'll go see it and form my own opinions.
I've enjoyed quite a few movies that got 'bad' reviews.
It's all subjective.
My $0.02.
Thanks.

Please keep in mind I never suggested that you published "FUD". The "if" in my statement placed that spurious remark firmly into the, "hypothetical theater of the absurd", category.

Besides, "one man's FUD, is another man's entire belief system". And really, who among us would tamper with such a sacred relationship? <(that's an impersonal generalization, my own peculiar brand of "FUD"). ;)

In completely wracked with confusion as to how to respond to this.

One one hand, we very much value your input and opinion. So those, along their progenitor, will be sorely missed for the 2 or 3 hours it takes you to complete your, "quest for knowledge", at a local theater.

OTOH, I fear you will be compelled to publish your review of it, good or bad, when you return. :eek:

This too is perhaps selfish on my part, as the only thing I'm truly curious about with the entire train wreck of a movie, is whether or not, whatshername's black fishnets are crotch less.

We need to stop focusing on such trivial things. Captaincranky has the right idea... we need to figure this one out ASAP!

The "young lady" after all, does carry a baseball bat. Which, by any standard of moral turpitude, does blow the innuendo meter clean off the dial. <(There is one of my naughty puns in there. If you know what it is, raise your hand).

I never go off of the critic reviews, iv used the audience reviews for 6+ years. However I am going to dump the whole system and just start going to what looks good. I miss that.

I don't know, I enjoyed Batman movies as much as the next guy, but BvS?? *spoiler alert* should have been called batman meets superman, featuring wonder woman, come and see 5 minutes of BvS, 10 minutes of action, half an hour of funeral scene and 2 hours of "character development" with the twists from originals that you won't definitely like.

Now... let's talk about the trailer for Justice League, it looked cool don't get me wrong but... batman is doing the recruiting as Bruce Wayne? AND he gives away that he is batman before even knowing the guys??? I mean... seriously those really small twists and details make me wonder if it will be a movie worth watching on the cinema.

To tell you the truth, I couldn't watch BvS in a single sitting, I was falling asleep mid way and had to give it another shot next day... now, don't ****ing tell me that my comments are biased because I'm a marvel fan and/or possibly a critic, I enjoy action movies as much as the next guy and DC has dropped the ball badly on the movie front.

Stories like this only reminds me of how low and petty we as a society have become... Critics are (generally/supposed to be) free to voice their opinion just as much as anyone else, just as much as you or I are free to voice a dissenting opinion. Making a frivolous petition singling out Rotten Tomatoes is just another example of people not being able to cope when someone else disagrees with them, and it just looks really, really petty. It's only a surprise they did not go after Metacritic either (another critic aggregate site), which currently stands at 42/100 on the movie.

And really, it is not just this or other fanbases that do it, it feels like it's practically everyone over everything.
Hit the nail right on the head, you did.
