I don't give any credit to RT. They're a joke of a site.

There still a long way to go [In reply to] Can't Post

11 critics cant settle score for sure and Metacritic DoS still has 67 that is really good if they keep it like that long enough.

missing 6 to 8 of the good reviews! I'm laughing, actually [In reply to] Can't Post

because the funniest part is that no one even cares - it blew up the box office last year and 99% of people are recorded as wanting to see it (if that number is correct).

People will see this movie anyway and all this does is make me decide that it is not worth my time to look at RT anymore!

Skip it ... the others are better.

Oh, please... [In reply to] Can't Post

Every review will be added in due time. I'm sure there is a valid reason why some reviews get added sooner than others. Stop with the conspiracy theories. Besides, doesn't Warner Brothers basically own Rotten Tomatoes?

Remember, it is the weekend before and the movie hasn't opened yet... [In reply to] Can't Post

So, many will be added over the next week. There's also a glowing review from TIME coming amongst the others. I'm still thoroughly expecting the final tally to wind up in the 80's, if the low 80's.

Speaking from the experience of having been on a short-lived cable show that was panned, I can tell you that many reviews will follow the big ones. (And that's not a justification for the show I was on, it really wasn't very good.) Many publications simply picked up the Variety and Hollywood Reporter reviews after the Associated Press carried them. I'm not sure if it still works that way, but that was the case about 7 years ago. Since Variety and HR are still the big ones, I'm expecting the reviews to overall remain pretty positive.

Maybe [In reply to] Can't Post

They have a problem about transfering reviews's score to RT score (note that not all of the reviews give a score like 4/5 stars or a numbers).

It is kinda frustrating though... [In reply to] Can't Post

That RT seems to post the negative reviews as quick as they can while taking their time with the good ones. No, I don't think it's a conspiracy, but it is frustrating.

You're all right though: still a week before release and a crap-ton more reviews will be added in the following days.

RT [In reply to] Can't Post

And Reviews in general are just not my thing mostly because they tend for my taste to overanalyze movies (and not just The Hobbit either). I'm not into all the over analyzing, hashing every detail and trying to make something out of everything, whether good or bad.

for me, did you enjoy the movie or not. Period. I used to frequent the boards at RT back in the day with LOTR but when IGN took it over it became a total mudrucking site (not the reviews, but the forums). Ever since then I quit going there because I was mainly there for the forums and not for the reviews.

The reviews get posted as the reviewers submit them. Many films start with high ratings and drop. The new Hunger Games was in the mid 90s at one point. Even Man of Steel was high up there as well.

I didn't say it was true. [In reply to] Can't Post

I said its how it seems. Right now, anyway. If you read through these threads, there has been quite a few good reviews from legitimate sites that aren't up on RT yet, but every bad review (that I know of) is already there.

Do the reviewers have to submit it to RT themselves? I don't know, and don't really care. I'm just commenting on how it seems.

Don't try to wet-blanket my b***h-fest with facts! Laugh

Dont you remember this link [In reply to] Can't Post

http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug-review-and-roundup

"Peter Jackson continues his lighter, more swashbuckling tone with the second Hobbit movie, "The Desolation of Smaug," which serves as a bridge to the much darker and apocalyptic "The Lord of the Rings." While total war mounts, there's still time for the rollicking action of the barrel flume ride (a theme park ride if ever there was one) and the much anticipated encounter with the menacing Smaug (deliciously voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), the greatest CG dragon ever created onscreen, thanks to the wizards of Weta.Like "The Two Towers," and in keeping with "The Godfather" and "Star Wars" trilogies, this middle movie might prove to be the most satisfying, freed from exposition and closure. And what a cliff hanger!"

What happend after that was quite negative review from The Playlist and somebody has showed us that some Indiewire's person didn't like DoS either.

Yeah, you're right. Eric Kohn is his name. [In reply to] Can't Post

He agreed with the ScreenCrush crap review AND he had previously given AUJ a decent review.

Meh.
