So, slash rotten tomatoes for being affiliated to the "Warner Fools" now. There part of the MAFIAA, so the People should stop buying things affiliated by them.

Totally agree with you. If the movie is rated 6 on RT, I usually love it. If it is rated 8, I am bored.

The reactions I'm reading were mine initially as well. However, we all need to remember that rotten tomatoes does not review films themselves, just averages hundreds of opinions from critics. That shouldn't change.

Rotten Tomatoes uses an aggregate system to rate movies based on the average rating from critics across a wide spectrum.

It's kinda like Metacritic, but just for movies. I would find it hard for WB to skew reviews in their favor just because they own it. If they change the format and how they are rated then yeah, but for the most part RT will probably continue to operate as it has in the past when it was owned by News Corp., IE Fox.
