thought this was pretty decent myself http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bone_collector/

Misunderstood gem http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/showgirls/
WW2 brought us the ultimate bad guy in Hitler. It was definitely a case of bigger, louder though, especially the bit with the atomic bomb.
i'm amused either way
He can say what he wants.
i grew up loving those films, and had such good memories of both of them because i used to watch them as a pair. couple of years ago i watched them separately - turns out all the good will comes from the first, which is basically perfect. the second has plenty of gags that you can reel off now, and they're decent, but the actual film itself is clumsy, slow and a bit shit, just stumbling between these gags (which aren't as good as the gags from the first film)
But it's jam-packed with gags.
Wayne's World 2 easily joins the esteemed likes of Empire Strikes Back, Aliens and The Terminator 2 as a sequel that not only lived up to its predecessor, but exceeded it. Don't get me wrong, the first film is good, but it doesn't have the weird naked Indian, Christopher Walken or your man from Withnail and I regaling with tales of beating a candy shop owner to death with his own shoes.
it only cares whether something was ranked at least 3/5
Counter-intuitive, but it's usually really reliable.
as it actually pays attentioned to positive scores, but yes Rotten Tomatoes is useful to gauge whether a film is popular or not with critics
I agree on paper Metacritic has a much better system, but Rotten Tomatoes works much better for me in practice.
It weighs some reviews higher than others and for some reason the have been a couple of example where an album/game/movie ends up having a higher 'metascore' than what any one reviewer rated the product... which just baffles me.
I thought it was one of the most competent action/adventure films of 2012, alongside Avengers Assemble and the Hobbit. Far more coherent and enjoyable than the Dark Knight Rises. Feel really sorry for everyone involved, didn't deserve to be treated the way it was.
(NB: Never seen it).
Was totally blown away by that film and STILL hold it in high esteem, no no no way did it get the mauling it got and actually it did very well in Asia so was not the huge financial flop that everyone thinks it was.
When I saw it, it was the everything that Phantom Menace should have been, witty, articulate and epic. I totally got that they were trying to make a 1930's Buck Rogers type film as I used to love watching those (used to show them in summer holidays after the kids' TV stopped). In a way it's nice that someone made a $150m cult film, but it's such a shame that it won't ever have a sequel...
so was DKR, but John Carter was definitely pretty terrible
It was a lot better than I was expecting it to be even if I struggled to get past it being "Tim Riggins in Space"
Isn't even rated - http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hawk_the_slayer/reviews/
Shame as it's one of the greatest "awful" movies out there,
Hawk the Slayer is almost unwatchable
if it was judged in its own right and not as some sort of sequel to Drive
probably the worst film I've seen all year
just in case he's working on one of his own
9%!!! It's an outrage.
I'm writing to my MP.
Christopher Lambert is being unfairly treated.
And the best Rutger Houer movies don't even get ratings (Split Second, Wedlock.)
I'm scared to look.
It's fucking BRILLIANT.
I love the bit where nothing happens for two hours.
Any film that can juggle skin-crawling violence, a high level of tension throughout and a healthy dose of barrel-laughs deserves far better than 40%. Not to mention it contains my favourite movie soundtrack after Vangelis' score for Blade Runner.
