The Dark Knight Rises (2012): I haven't seen it, but it's pretty clearly the best movie ever made, and I will lead a comments-section jihad over anyone who doesn't like it before I get a chance to love it. No, I'm kidding; obviously those people who lose their shit on Rotten Tomatoes are crazy and/or stupid. I will say, though, that as idiotic as those people are, I can't imagine they represent any kind of actual cross-section of actual fans. I mean, obviously they represent some segment, but the way it's written about makes it sound like this is how most comics fans react to negative press over their beloved characters. I hardly put comics fans on a pedestal; I just know that there are too many of them to characterize in one particular way. You know how "everyone" hates certain movies but really what that means is, extremely vocal sections of extremely passionate fanbases hate something? A medium-sized percent of a medium-sized percent, equaling probably more like a small percent? Yeah, it's kind of like that. Walk into Midtown Comics and interview some people, and I don't think you'll find a ton of guys who are like, yeah, as soon as they put a negative review on Rotten Tomatoes, I send a shitload of threats to Dana Stevens, what of it? Grade: pending!
