Rotten Tomatoes Is Changing Its Audience Rating System Because of Trolls

quote [ Even though the general public has not yet had the chance to see Captain Marvel, that didn’t stop trolls from preemptively trashing the film on Rotten Tomatoes in what can only be described as an sexism-fueled attempt at convincing people that a movie about a female superhero couldn’t possibly be good. Now, the ratings site is taking action to deal with the problem. ]

Damn - I guess I'm gonna have to go to youtube comments to get my fill of trollish and racist comments now.

I watched a cam last night. I was pretty happy with it, it's about as good on propaganda as you're gonna get from a Marvel flick with that sort of character background. I think the problem is even when you've got anti-imperial messaging or anti-surveillance messaging, as with Winter Soldier, it tends to go over the average viewer's head and all they see is "Cool character was soldier, it made them (pick one: stronger, cooler, sexier, etc.)"

edit: Trying to make an "anti" movie is a bit like arguing with trolls; You think you're providing a counterpoint, but you're usually providing them with a platform. :)
