I’ve posted about the movie “Black Panther” and how the rating site, Rotten Tomatoes, first removed bad ratings because “the movie hadn’t been watched yet” yet all of a sudden it gets a 100% rating when “it hasn’t been watched yet.”

Then I saw a mention for Clint Eastwood’s “15:17 to Paris” and decided to compare.

My conclusion?

If you feel compelled to use Rotten Tomatoes look only for movies with low ratings.

    Went to see 15:17 to Paris on Friday. It wasn’t an action movie but rather a movie about three ordinary guys who had discipline problems growing up. They were guys like any of us and when it got down to the wire, they came though. It was very good movie about regular Americans who stepped up.

    Even though Black Panther is an alt-right action movie, set in a fantasy place where everyone looks like a black person but is actually a right-winger in blackface, I’m not going to see it in a theater. I might rip it off from the Net, if I hear by word-of-mouth that’s it’s worth watching; but my dough ain’t going to support the degenerates in Hollyweird.

    Besides, all the real shady characters will be flocking out to see it; I don’t want to get beat up, robbed or killed by some vibrant “youths” who are practicing their diversity, much like St. Trayvon of Skittles was doing with George Zimmerman’s head on a sidewalk.

    As far as Tomatoes go- I don’t ever bother with that site, and just from what you show above I’d say there’s no reason to. It appears to be fully converged with SJWs and regressive Progressives, so it’s preaching to the choir and I’m not in it. I use IMDB to find out what a movie is about, and don’t pay a whole lot of attention to their ratings either- but they’re a lot more conservative, and the ratings are from the people who’ve seen it & not just from those gods among us known as “Hollywood Reviewers.” For Black Panther, IMDB rating is 6.6; probably not too far off. That would indicate it’s an OK action film, generally; Casablanca is only rated at 8.5 though, so IMDB’s not 100% reliable either- for what I like, anyway.

    Clint Eastwood’s picture though, I will be going to see. I very much doubt that I’ll be troubled by too many vibrants there. It’ll also be wonderfully well made, and it’ll be a 100% American movie made by an American for an American to enjoy. I do want to support Eastwood, who is a legend in his own time and fully deserves to be! I also want to show Hollyweird that their one-sided vision isn’t the only one, and that they could actually make decent movies and people will go to see them.

    Who knows? Maybe that’ll even happen! (He said, whistling past the graveyard.)

    And I’m surprised by this how?

    Even though my son took me, my budget for movies for a long time was blown on 12 Strong. Have to wait for 15:17 when it comes to Redbox. I could give a shit less about Black Panther. When everyone who’s anyone starts raving about it and making sure to let us all know it’s not racist, that tells me not to waste my money.
