Skip to comments.Rotten Tomatoes Mulls Further Tightening User Guidelines to Combat Trolls

On Feb. 26 amid a deluge of negative posts about the female-led Captain Marvel Rotten Tomatoes said it would no longer let users say whether they want to see a movie until it begins playing in theaters. Online trolls exacted their revenge by flooding the website with thousands of audience reviews trashing the superhero pic once it opened March 8.
But the play didn't work. Captain Marvel is a blockbuster, opening to $154.3 million domestically and more than $455 million globally over the March 8-10 weekend, the sixth-biggest launch of all time. And by Tuesday, it was zooming past the $500 million mark worldwide.
A rep for the website now tells The Hollywood Reporter that additional measures are being considered in terms of audience reviews. Namely, a user may be asked to verify that he or she has seen the film in question before being allowed to post a critique. (It is unclear what that prompt would look like in practice.)

The Left pulled this crap with Black Panther. Lefties whispered that it was comeuppance for black people, that the movie was going to be nothing short of a superhero Panther (the militant group from the 60s) movie.
It was nothing of the sort. It was actually Galt's Gulch. And the movie was great. None of the social justice warrior crap.
Stop getting taking in by this garbage that the Left pushes. I'm a huge Marvel and D.C. fan and I'm going to see Captain Marvel on $5 movie night at the theater.
It may NOT be a runaway hit
I saw Panther and was underwhelmed. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a much better movie.

When adjusted for inflation, Captain Marvel sits close to the bottom and based on it's trajectory, will likely land 12th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Why are their useless and unethical reviews not being screened and censored?
“How can you prove you’ve seen a movie? “

I fell asleep watching BP.
Rotten Tomatoes is now owned by Fandango, of which Warner Bros. owns 30% and Comcast Universal owns 70%.
Rotten Tomatoes exists to sell tickets.
All of the corporate media sites are getting rid of user comments. They don’t want any push back to their propaganda at all.
That could work.
