TBH, don't agree too often with Rotten Tomatoes. And though critics analyze what we might not see, they often rate movies with bias anyway.

You know, I find that I disagree with most ratings done by critics, although, one example of something they did really well on, is Eragon (That film was horrible)

Yeah I know right. It used to pissed me off, then I realised I could do nothing about it. Life moves on, and more films I like come out, get ripped, but get rewatched. Again and again and again.

Eh, making a thread and calling the critics idiots allowed me to vent. As soon as I hit enter, I didn't feel so bad anymore.

Why're you guys acting as if critics operate as a single entity? "They did well..." or "They did poorly...." Never mind the fact that you're criticizing a critic for his subjectivity; they each have their own opinions, and other than getting paid to write about movies, they're no different from the regular audience.

And in regards to The Room, you're still in the minority. Only 46% of the audience on Rotten Tomatoes liked it.

Just because a critic's opinions are subjective doesn't mean we can't subjectively criticize the critics.

People, for some reason, pay these people. That means there are people who value their opinions. No stopping that, nor should it be stopped. Criticized, on the other hand, why not?

I lambasted, then criticized. It contains the best of both. : D

I'm going to level with you here, I just needed to vent.
