Darth Homer: "Why are they persisting with this falsehood when AOTC still has a 60% approval rating according to Rotten Tomatoes' tally? TPM never reached that mark" Because it isn't really a falsehood. The reviews that matter (and, despite anything anyone tells you, the only "reviews" that matter are the ones that are featured in sources that are in mass distributiuon, like daily newspapers, magazines with decent circulations, television, and radio. It's not a useful review if only a dozen people read it) are saying that AotC is not a good movie. Based on what I've seen just browsing and looking at what TFN puts up, I'd say that it's somewhere in the area of 75%-80% negative from the major media outlets in the United States. If you're not convinced, then think what is a more newsworthy event on this topic: a good review of E2 or a bad review of E2? The critics are roasting this movie alive, no matter what some site like "Rotten Tomatoes" would have you believe. Just trying to inject a little reality into this conversation. The only thing that matters now is whether or not the average movie patron likes the film...which will inevitably drown out the criticisms over time if it proves to be the case.
