‘DARK KNIGHT RISES’: Rotten Tomatoes disables comments for the first time after harsh reaction
WHENEVER THE REVIEWS roll in for a much-liked superhero franchise or Pixar film, the tempest is unleashed upon the first critics who go negative. And in the comment threads at RottenTomatoes.com, the storm has come again.
The high anticipation for “The Dark Knight Rises,” Christopher Nolan’s reported final film in his Batman trilogy, had fans ready to pounce — and leap they did, assailing critic Marshall Fine (Hollywoodandfine.com) to the point that Rotten Tomatoes, at Fine’s request, took down the link to his review.
Yet the heated nature of the derogatory comments toward several critics who had less than positive things to write about “Dark Knight Rises” — including AP’s Christy Lemire and Nick Pinkerton of the Village Voice — has prompted Rotten Tomatoes to disable its comments for the first time ever.
The action will be “for a few days,” writes Matt Atchity, editor in chief of the entertainment review aggregation site.
“The job of policing the comments became more than my staff could handle for that film, so we stopped the comments altogether,” Atchity tells the AP. “It just got to be too much hate based on reactions to reviews of movies that people hadn’t even seen.”
“The Dark Knight Rises,” which opens Friday, currently has an 86-percent “fresh” rating and an audience rating of “93.”
Atchity sees he’s weighing his longer-term options, such as whether to go to a Facebook commenting system.
But mostly, he’s urging his site’s more heated commenters simply to simmer down.
“Just take a deep breath, step away from the computer, and maybe go for a walk.” Atchity writes. “Have a smoke if you need one. There are plenty of other things to get angry about, like war, famine, poverty and crime. But not movie reviews.”
Both RottenTomatoes.com and DC Comics are owned by Warner Bros.
From Ebert's review;
That sucks, because that was my main complaint with the previous one, and this isn't the only review of the few I've read that mentioned this.The result, in Christopher Nolan's conclusion to his Batman trilogy, is an ambitious superhero movie with two surprises: It isn't very much fun, and it doesn't have very much Batman
I was afraid this would happen.
I think even when I'll like the movie this will keep nagging me.
