Fuck RottenTomatoes, I've seen them give great, fun movies some bullshit ratings before. It must suck to be a professional movie critic, you're paid to over analyze movies and take the fun out of watching movies.

I was a little skeptical when I heard they were making a sequel. It seems like it will turnout like The Hangover 2 did, where it is just the same movie with a slightly different setting.

Exactly. It's just ridiculous. Some movies do not need to be reviewed.

Who cares if Snow Dogs got 4 out of 10 if a 4-10 year old, who it is aimed at, is going to enjoy it? Or, marking Human Centipede out of 10 like somebody is going to think "This dude puts peoples head up other peoples asses, but it only got 5.6 out of 10 so I think I will wait for a film were a dude puts peoples heads up peoples asses that has a rating of at least 8 out of 10"

I'm still looking forward to seeing Taken. I didn't think a sequel made logical sense, however I don't care that they made it. It doesn't make the original obsolete, nor take anything away from it, and Neeson will still kick arse in the same way he did in the first one so I will enjoy it.

I think all movies should be be reviewed. no matter what. Other wise we're going to get absolutely dumb shit with the "but it'll make money" reasoning behind it forever and ever. Plus, it actually helps movies to know that if Cuban Gooding Jr. is making shit movies, they won't want to put him in a good one anymore.

^^You're right all movies should be reviewed, just some critics have to give consideration to the target audience of the film first and foremost. Not every animation film is going to be the 'Lion King' and not every action thriller is going to be 'Heat', but that doesn't necessarily make them 3/10 flicks either. I haven't seen Taken 2 yet, but i'm pretty sure when i do i will enjoy it well enough as a decent mindless romp. Exactly as it should be

Exactly. Expendables got poor ratings from many critics on RT because it didn't have good "storytelling." Who the fuck CARES? The entire movie was meant to be a throwback to action films of the past; and that meant, senseless, nonstop, insane, mindblowing, gory violent scenes with shootings and explosions and everything. Nobody went into that story expecting a fucking Shakespeare play.

Agreed 100%.

I saw it opening day and thought it was great. Not as good as the first one, which happens to be one of my favorite movies ever, but still great.

I couldn't care less about the reviews and I don't see why anyone should. I'm not expecting a cinematic masterpiece. I'm going to see Bryan Mills fuck shit up. End of.
