    It’s simple- 90% of reviewers are failed Film School Graduates and they think that Film should be ART. The audience is normal people who just want to be entertained and aren’t looking for hidden meanings and societal commentary. It is an extremely rare movie that can do both.

    They did a study?? Seriously?? Can I assume that Capitan Obvious was the lead researcher??

    It all depends on who’s reviewing the movie. I remember back in the day with Siskel and Ebert, and anything that Ebert liked, I avoided with a ten foot pole.
    And with todays’ very liberal reviewers, anything that they are drooling over, I treat the same way.

    Americans are intellectual children with very low IQ’s and fall for the simple tricks of child psychology.

      Yet every other trash country like yours follows American trends every time. What’s the last world box office hit your list country came up with? If America is so awful, why do you weirdos fight do hard to get here?

      The irony is you literally failed to understand the complexity of box office success that the study and the journo either purposely or were too ignorant to grasp. Way to look foolish.

      After checking out several of your social media accounts across the web, I’ve concluded that you’re a profoundly unhappy person and you deserve pity instead of ire.

    So context of bad reviews don’t matter? Funny how critics are bribed by companies, like Disney, tell you what movies you are supposed to like are genuinely awful movies and tend to feel the wrath of of the audience.

    The other side is these critics will give bad reviews to movies that don’t follow the progressive narrative they are trying to push even though the movies are genuinely entertaining.

    Most of the audience no longer care what the critics say because the critics are are not genuine. Most people no that when journos who pretend they don’t and push to divide the audience for clicks while at the same time are delusional that these “studies” mean what the journos say they mean.

    This has been true my whole life, and I’m in my 60’s. The professional reviewers love the stinkers and hate the beauties. Hollywood itself loves stinkers, and only makes barely enough beauties to cover their losses on the stinkers. You’d think they’d want to make more money, but it’s never been about money. I’ve always put it down to the arrogance of Hollywood (and its professional reviewers) looking down their noses at the tastes of “flyover country”, and getting their kicks out of trying to make us all eat garbage and miss the good stuff. Just for sport. ‘Cause they were sneering school bullies as children. They’re still doing it, only now in more industries than just movies. So pay to waste your time watching stinkers, and eat zee bugs instead of popcorn. Because the “elites” think you’re their cattle and it’s funny to abuse you.

    Someone should get word to John Anderer, the writer, that his name has been attached to a bogus study obviously written by the Disney PR department

    A couple of simple reasons for the discrepancy are:

    – we watch movies to take a break from our everyday work and responsibilities. In addition, we get to choose the movies genres we’re watching.
    – the critic must watch and critique all kinds of movies for their paycheck. After awhile, the novelty wears off and it becomes more of a grind…
