5 Movies Rotten Tomatoes Got Horribly, Terribly Wrong
It's a shame that like the rest of the media, film reviewers are largely made up of those completely out of touch with the everyday American. There are exceptions, but too few to mention. Eventually, the Left corrupts every institution it touches by making it a single-minded clique that shuns the non-conformist.
Give a positive review to Dinesh D'Souza's "America" and you are suspect, risking alienation, and therefore your career.
This pathetic groupthink doesn't just affect reviews of documentaries defending our country, it affects all kinds of crowd-pleasers.
When you don't like the crowd it can be hard to like the movies that appeal to them.
Michael Bay is one of the most successful directors of our time. Only one - one! -- of his films has earned enough positive reviews to be certified as "fresh."
Here are five examples of movies the Critical Class at Rotten Tomatoes got horribly, terribly, unforgivably wrong.
"Armageddon"(1999) - 39%
"National Treasure" (2004) - 44%
"Top Gun" (1986) - 55%
"The Passion of the Christ" (2004) - 49%
"Bruce Almighty" (2003) - 48%
…and that was just off the top of my head.
For those about to scream hypocrisy, although they are no longer online, I gave Michael Moore's "Sicko" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" rave reviews, my love for Steven Soderbergh's "Che" was the first review I published here at Breitbart, and then there's this.
It is possible to set aside your own strongly-held beliefs and judge a movie based on its merits. You just have to be open-minded, tolerant, and well, liberal in the true sense of that word.
