When it comes to delusion, nobody does it better than fanboys and it looks like the recent negative reviews for DC’s latest movie, Suicide Squad has brought out some of the most delusional fans in a while. Read on to find out what those crazy nerds are up to this time. A recent petition has been started on Change.org by the aforementioned delusional fanboys – who are aiming at shutting down Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes – due to what believe is unfavorable bias towards the DC Extended Universe.
The description for the petition reads (verbatim):
We need this site to be shut down because It’s Critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews, Like
1- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016
2- Suicide Squad 2016
and that Affects people’s opinion even if it’s a really great movies
This petition is fairly farcical for two reasons:
The first of these reasons is that Rotten Tomatoes merely compiles the reviews from all the sites to create a percentage figure. It’s actually other websites who are giving the film the negative feedback.
Second is that Warner Bros., who are responsible for DC and its films – are in fact part owners of the site. So, if it is showing favoritism, they are certainly doing it very wrong.
If you are interesting in signing the petition, you can check it out – although if you’re not interested in signing it this time, just wait until the next DC film is released and another petition is created.
For those of you make up your own minds on whether you like a film, Suicide Squad will hit theaters August 5th. If you do need help with your opinions – be sure to check out our review when it hits this Friday.
