There was a bit of controversy re: the Rotten Tomatoes score - source
Quote:
Within hours of Captain Marvel hitting theaters, roughly 58,000 audience reviews had flooded the critical aggregator site, plummeting the Marvel movie's Audience Score down to 33%. Captain Marvel's Audience Score now sits, at the time this article was published, at 53% with over 35,000 user ratings, while the film's critical Tomatometer score is certified "fresh" at 79%.

58,000 audience reviews hitting within hours of the film's release, as The Hollywood Reporter points out, "is more than the total of audience score reviews for Avengers: Infinity War for its entire theatrical run."

According to Rotten Tomatoes, this inflated initial number was because thousands of those audience reviews were submitted by users before the movie even opened, a functionality the site recently retooled in order to prevent online trolls from "review-bombing" them with fake negative reviews.

It seems Rotten Tomatoes' newly implemented system was immediately beset by technical difficulties.
Have you seen Captain Marvel yet? What did you think?

Haven't seen it yet (I always wait for the 4K release), but I am very glad to see it doing gangbusters at the box office. The trolls have failed again.

    I went into the movie with no expectations since I'm not a huge fan of superhero movies, but my friends wanted to see it and these films are usually pretty good even if you're not a huge Marvel fan.

    I didn't think it was great, but I liked it well enough. Like I said in the "What was the last movie you watched" thread, I don't know if it was Brie Larson's performance or just the way the character was written, but I didn't really love Vers and thought she was quite bland.

    Do you know what the reason for the review bombings was, or why there is so much controversy surrounding this film? I'm pretty out of the loop, but like I said, I didn't think it was great or awful, not sure why it's gaining so much attention in particular. I thought maybe people didn't like a titular female superhero or something, but she's certainly not the first, so I'm at a loss here.

    Because Brie Larson speaks her mind about political issues, and that upset people on the right, so they got all in a rage and said to boycott Disney and this film and go see Anita instead.

    Which will be owned by Disney in about two weeks, so bravo.

      I'm waiting to see it until the crowds thin out, and I'm so excited! >u< I actually just recently got "into" the Marvel Cinematic Universe - I loved Guardians 1/2 and Black Panther, so I found myself wanting to see Infinity Wars. I asked my Marvel-obsessed dad if he could figure out which movies I needed to see to understand it, my dad jumped at the challenge with barely restrained glee, he made a list, we crash-coursed it together in the span of a week then went to see Infinity Wars. It was awesome!

      I personally thought the plot was quite bog-standard action film with super powers. It felt like the CGI was the main focus and the story itself was an afterthought. Not that I don't like CGI but if that is the main (only) thing the movie has going for it I'm not going to like it.

        Saw it today - I'm not very objective about things like this, but I thought it was good! Not my favorite Marvel movie, but befitting the standard set by Marvel movies in general. I admit, I liked the moments of humor most of all - I mean, come on, young {Spoilers Omitted By EmTheGhost} fawning over a kitty!! >w< Hilarious.

        Spoiler:
        Also, who else spent a large part of the movie thinking that the twist was gonna be that Vers was unknowingly a Skrull? I like twists of that nature, but I think what we got was more interesting - and less predictable, if many people had the same idea as me. Honestly, I'm wondering if we were supposed to think that, (or at least those of us more jaded to movie twists), as a deliberate Bait-and-Switch.

          It's really good, and honestly fun. Plus the twists were great, I was not expecting them at all.
