Most consumers turn to Rotten Tomatoes for a trustworthy rating of movies. While reading reviews can assist moviegoers in selecting the ideal film to see, it is still preferable for the viewer to form their own judgement without being swayed by outside sources. The financial aspect of movies may be influenced by Rotten Tomatoes, according to recent box office statistics. The box office performance of Batman v Superman experienced one of the greatest declines in history following the publication of reviews and word-of-mouth, earning far less than Warner Bros. Many devoted movie fans have recently gone to Reddit to debate whether some “rotten” movies should have received higher ratings.
