According to Rotten Tomatoes, visitors confused the "want to see" ranking with the "audience score". The latter indicates the percentage of all users who have given a positive rating to a film or program (which in RT Land is 3.5 stars or more) is reserved for post-publication.
"We do it to more accurately and authentically represent the voice of fans, while protecting our public forums and our data from bad actors," Fandango's website said in its blog. The update follows the changes made to the critics' criteria last August to open the Tomatometer to independent voices from YouTube and the Internet.
After taking a series of negatives Captain Marvel Rotten Tomatoes also removes pre-release movie reviews. "Unfortunately, we have witnessed an increase in non-constructive contributions, sometimes on the verge of drags, which, in our opinion, is detrimental to our general readership," writes the website in his blog. "We have decided that turning off this feature at the moment is the best solution." Users will still be able to comment on a movie normally after it is released in theaters.
Rotten Tomatoes' bipartisan criticism has already been criticized by Hollywood for derailing its tents. But these claims have not withstood scrutiny. The problem of the audience, by cons, more like the problem of YouTube with "do not like mobs". Although these latest RT updates may partially solve the problem of exciting movies on the horizon, this will still not prevent people from complaining to the public's point of view, that they have or not watched the movie question.
