While discussing online outrage vs. reality...

  1. Maybe I haven't been going to the right sites, but it seems to me there's been a lot more attention focused on people who thought it was great (often before actually viewing it), so much so that it was worth starting a petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes over it.

  2. Given how small a minority that vocal voice of complainers actually is compared to the General Audience, a boycott would still amount to a very minimal loss. I doubt the opening weekend would have even dropped to $132M without the would-be boy-cotters.

  4. But at least this way they're complaining about a movie they've actually *seen*.

  5. (Also: anybody who describes not going to a movie because they don't think they're going to like it as "boycotting" does not have a working idea of what a boycott is. Not buying a thing you don't want is not a boycott, it's just not buying a thing you don't want.)

  6. I hated SS. But I'm glad that it and DoJ made decent money 'cause it means they'll keep trying and I still hope Zack Snyder's regime can make a good movie.

  7. Dave Kellett described Suicide Squad as a "hot mess." This is apt.
