    Do you think the RT's rating of TLK of 15% really worth it? I thought it's too low

    You shouldn't really care... But personally I thought TLK was the weakest in the series due to so much wasted potential.

    The Transformers films are kind of becoming like the Saw franchise in which you know what you're gonna see and it's getting stale due to a lack of freshness.

    "Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise."

    That consensus is pretty accurate. At least it mentioned 'state-of-the-art special effects'. That's pretty generous. :lol

    165 reviews that contributed to that score is based on disagree.

    It's an average, how can it be too low? It might be lower than you'd like but it is what it is.

    Given the film was savaged by critics pretty consistently, yes, the rating is more or less warranted by the system Rotten Tomatoes goes by.

    If its your opinion that the film is 'better' than one that 3/20 critics would rate as an average or better film, then so be it.

    Why do you think that number is too low, OP?

    It's hard to swallow a rotten tomato, when it's a movie you genuinely like, but I believe that the tomatoe metre is pretty accurate 99% of the time, especially with newer movies.

    Marvel do have those jokes, but they are always funnier and much more in context with the characters and narrative than the kind of junk the first 4 TF movies puked over its viewer.

    Rotten Tomatoes ruins movies for audience.

    I think it works for Starlord because he's this idiot goofball. Movie Optimus is not the same, he's kind of crazy but in a more homicidal way.

    Well no of course not, but like I say, it's down to context. Dancing, as a decoy and act of audacity to confuse and delay a terrifying boss villain is something that works within the character logic of Star Lord as we understand him. Obviously Optimus is more of a no bull shit kinda guy. ;)

    I'm not sure what you mean by "worth it"... it's just an aggregate of critic reviews.

    How?

    I think AOE deserves at least a 20%, but it's 15% doesn't stop me from regarding it as a 20% tomato.

    Low tomato scores might prevent me from watching a movie at the cinema, but it won't stop me from watching it ever, and it certainly won't influence my opinion of the movie.

    What's your point? Explain! Right now! ;)

    People don't realize what goes into making a movie like that. It's mind blowing. Just insane, it's hurting the business, it's getting people not to see a movie. What's sad is film criticism has disappeared.

    If people don't appreciate the work gone into a movie, that's that fault of the Director, for not using and showcasing the different elements of the movie as a cohesive whole. It's the fault of the Producer, for flooding the narrative with a 100 useless tangents, in the hope one of them might be financially viable in the future. It's not the fault of the critic for calling them out for it.

    Nobody's accusing ILM of resting on their laurels, or criticizing bays enthusiasm for pioneering new camera technology.

    So I ask you again, what's your point?

    And how has film critism disappeared? I'd say at 15% average poor review, film critism is alive and fucking well mon frere !!

    Some studies have shown that people are more likely to see a movie that was rated higher by RT, than one with lower score

    Was that study made at the school of "seems likely to me"?

    When you look at the number below that the average rating number is 3.3/10 making it fairly amazing that The Last Knight did claw it's way to a score of 15%.

    The problem is this is not Bay's first transformers movie. He hasn't really done anything to show the audience an improvement in the franchise quality.

    If the the story was on par with his cinematography, TF5 would have at least earned 30-40%.

    So they should be happy it at least earned a score of two digits.

    You're right. I don't think it deserved a 15%.
    Its score should have been much lower.

    Trash.
