An open letter to Rotten Tomatoes and the public:
So thanks to T-Mobile I have a free ticket to go see Suicide Squad opening day Friday. And you know what? I am mostly likely going to thoroughly enjoy it.
So Matt Atchity, you may not remember me, but I did many Google On-Air Hangouts with you while you were on Fox 11 in LA with Maria Quiban. Now while I am not going to jump on the RT hate wagon, (because you don’t do the reviews, you folks just tally them), is it at all possible to give larger weight to user reviews vs professional reviews? Maybe base the Fresh score on audience score? I mean its safe to say the site is made for the public and not industry insiders and its obvious that the public and the reviewers are in deep disagreement on an increasing number of movies now. It just makes sense to let the public decide for themselves.
And besides, it would help prevent smaller movies from being judged unfairly by just a couple critics.
