    Why bother? People are already lining up to blast Metacritic with 0/10 scores without seeing the movie and no plans to ever watch it.

    And other people are going to give it a 10/10 without seeing it or when they dislike it, because of their agenda. And I'd say both sides are equally eager to get at it. The more aggressive people on both sides are going to do their ratings right when they can because they aim for immediate effect.
    The difference in ratings that come after the clash of 0/10's and 10/10's are going to show the more realistic/honest statistics as the regular movie goers without an agenda are the ones still giving ratings actively.

    This makes sense. The people most likely to be invited to an early screening and be ready to drop the first reviews the moment the embargo ends are the same people who are most likely to want to paint a rosy picture of this movie for ideological reasons - writers for news, entertainment and gaming sites. Plus, it's not unlikely that Sony put a priority on inviting reviewers who the believed you be more positive in the first place. The score will most likely drop while the viewer score will be a battle zone between trolls and feminists which the trolls will win if the trailer dislikes are anything to go by. You can also expect youtube reviews to be overwhelmingly negative while the wikipedia page tries to paint the reception as good with the usual methods (ignoring or only briefly mentioning criticism and declaring sources they wan to avoid citing in the article as "uncredible").

    Also, notice the disparity on Rotten Tomatoes between the overall reviews and top reviews.

    Remember: the budget for this movie was $154 million dollars.

    Jurassic World cost $150 million
    X-Men Origins: Wolverine cost $150 million
    Wolf of Wall Street cost $155 million

    shows that people who wrote positive reviews of the film over the last two days are the exact same people who wrote the "hating this movie is misogyny" articles in the past few moths.

    It feels like they were so eager to be the first to review it because they are desperately hoping the movie succeeds and are either trying to get people in the seats before the word gets out it's bad, or hoping to set the tone for other sites too lazy and timid to stray from what the thing the popular opinion is.

    I'm expecting it to be no worse than any comedy released in the last 8 years.

    Shit yes, but that's the status quo.

    aw, but the trailers were so bad.
    I'm expecting "Pixels" levels of bad - not a so-bad-it's-good student film, but something that is clearly professionally made but otherwise soulless and cringy.

    Well, the jury is still out, but it'd be a shame if it turned out to be an okay movie. A lot of build up for nothing.

    Sorry for quad posting I'm just having too much fun with this shitstorm

    So to clarify the disparity - The overall score is is about 75%, but if you only factor in large, respectable publications, it's at like 45%. That's because smaller sites are more susceptible to pressure from sony and more likely to be staffed by hipster 20 year olds from San Francisco.

    Honestly I was hoping to see the movie bomb because the highlight for me would have been to watch the MovieBob review and laugh. Now he's made a video, but not a review. It's not very interesting, he's mostly trying to convince anyone who dislikes it for simply being bad in no relation to the feminazi thing that they just have a misplaced feeling of nostalgia in a sad attempt to trick people into into second guessing themselves into thinking it's good.

    So now I just have to wait and hope he does make a review later, or settle for reading whatever crazy sperg rage WeHuntedTheMammoth inevitably comes up with in response as a consolation prize.

    At this point the movie would do half a billion if it were a two hour roller derby match filmed on an iPhone.

    Metacritic doesn't allow user reviews until the movie is out.
