    Someone doesn't know how RT works. The reviews aren't on there because more than likely the reviewer either isn't approved or doesn't submit to RT.

    Or its a fix. Trying to make people think it's shit so people won't see it, which mean Bay won't make money..... All because of the unnecessary stupid hate.

    To clarify, those guys are just contributors. Those aren't really official reviews. Basically just cause I could submit a review to them and it would be posted, doesn't mean it would count in the critic score cause I'm not officially a film critic.

    Yeah, RT only accepts reviews. I don't think they go out looking for every single one.

    Hell if you're that curious, ask the reviewer.

    There ya go.

    Anyway, on the subject of the reviews, this bit:

    This guy must frequent the site.

    I remember people saying "keep toy story 3 at 100% because it's the best ever!!" ....although it really wasn't all that.

    But they couldn't do anything about it, it was up to the reviewers, not the people saying that. And they actually wanted to keep it at 100% because at the time TS1 and 2 were at 100% too and they wanted to keep the trilogy perfect. Regardless, that has no bearing on how RT scores, and it's silly to even insinuate that.

    Did Forbes really need two people to review this film?

    I like to pretend that all the reviewers met up before they saw TF4 and were like, "ok guys, now's our chance to destroy this franchise for good! No matter whether you enjoy this piece of shit or not...GIVE IT HELL!"

    They had two contributors submit reviews, they weren't actual Forbes employees (at least that's what I understood).

    I'm assuming at some point an editor was involved that was responsible for hiring and approving the contributors and their contributions. Was wondering why the process necessitated two of them.

    this one is on RT.

    Maybe they both really wanted to do it?

    They're both excellently written reviews, the first one especially.

    This movie will make all the money in the universe, and it will also be oppressively stupid. These things are known.

    i don't understand this thread.

    These reviews are not part of Rottentomatoes calculations as far as i can tell. so what does it have to do with the Rotten meter?
