The lack of a host for the awards show was not distracting to me. Next year, maybe they could get Ryan Reynolds to host, but considering Kevin Hart backed out on short notice, they did ok this year. Maybe Kevin Hart can host one in the future. I still think he would do a good job.
That’s all for now about the Oscars. Next up: Rotten Tomatoes.
You may have noticed that Rotten Tomatoes has made a change to the guidelines of their review voting scores. Due to the large amount of spam reviews by a small but loud group of internet toxicators, Rotten Tomatoes removed it’s audience voting system. Before they did, Captain Marvel went from 97% ‘want to see’ to 27% almost overnight, and the same thing was happening to Star Wars: Episode IX even though we are almost a year away from that movie and the title hadn’t even come out yet. This abuse of the rating system led Rotten Tomatoes to remove it.
I actually support this change. It helps people get a more accurate view of how an upcoming movie is anticipated and/or seen, rather than letting a small group dominate the conversation with hate speech, anger and death threats, and even sexist and racist remarks. As movie sites continue to develop their interaction with fans, hopefully they will find better ways to allow true movie fans to express themselves without having to deal with angry haters. I hope Captain Marvel is successful despite the efforts of some to sabotage it.
That’s it for now. See you at the movies!
