  • I am honestly curious to see how Rotten Tomatoes will continue to

    operate independently. Because I just can’t imagine Warner Bros being ok with a site they own trashing one of their own movies. So I guess we’ll have to see how extensive the impact is.

      I’m curious, too. This is such a potentially sticky situation, and I always prefer separation of studio and critics. Even though Rotten Tomatoes is mostly an aggregate site, there’s always potential for shenanigans. Not that I’m overly suspicious or anything. 🙂

    I agree a movie studio owning a review website. Be interesting to see if warner bros movies get higher ratings although supposedly these are just a collection of critics opinions grouped onto one site.
