This was such an outrage to fans (who placed the film at respectable 73%) that one of them started a petition to shut down the site, which has been signed by nearly 20,000 people. Although, after taking some time to cool down, Abdullah Coldwater, the man who started the petition, changed the goal to a less ballsy “Don’t listen to film criticism.”
Still the point had been made. Coldwater, and about 20,000 other people, have had it with critics and their la-dee-da-fancy-pants opinions. It seems a revolution has been inspired. In fact there’s a movie opening this weekend that needs rescued from critics even more than Suicide Squad. A movie starring academy award winning actor Kevin Spacey. A movie that currently stand at a mere 7% on Rotten Tomatoes. That movie is Nine Lives.
Emboldened by the bravery of Mr. Coldwater, one fan has started a Twitter account to support the film and take on the tyranny of Rotten Tomatoes.
The account is quickly building followers based on its unflinching look at the conspiracy that is going on in the world of film criticism.
Not wanting to be unduly harsh, the account does point out that there are a few critics who do, in fact, have their shit together.
For the record, Nicholson actually liked Nine Lives more than Suicide Squad.
With both of these movements going on simultaneously, maybe shutting down Rotten Tomatoes isn’t such an unattainable goal after all. Finally, great films won’t be ruined by out of touch critics who think they know everything about cinema. If the person running this Twitter account and Abdullah Coldwater can get together, who knows what they can accomplish!
Then again, they might have their own problems to work through first.
