    Only thing I use RT for is to go see which critics reviewed a movie and to find spiecific critic’s reviews.

    I don't follow critics. If a film looks like it will interest me then I go to see it, regardless of what others may think of it. Conversely, I don't care how many people rave over a film. If it does not look interesting to me or the subject matter does not interest me then I don't bother with it.

    People were raving over "Black Panther" and I thought it was only an average Marvel film after seeing it.

    Yeah me too but I still like to read a published review every now and then.
    Mostly for older films. Not so much new releases.

    I think the studios have legitimized it by quoting high ratings in their marketing promotions. If they're going to use the high scores for promotion, they have to be willing to own the low scores, too.

    I usually read every review I can get my hands on especially RT. However I only read the reviews of movies with interesting subject matter or type. Sci fi always interests me including Marvel movies and I love comedies if they are not exclusively about defecation. We try to stay away from the “Oscar best picture” type, but sometimes we are fooled.

    Sure, own the low scores. But when there are scores before release or you know there are organized campaigns to inflate (or deflate) scores, then no.

    But it wasn't a score and there wasn't an organized campaign.

    It was a simple question: Are you interested in seeing the movie. Yes or No.

    Now they have changed it so you can vote but only if you are interested in seeing it.

    They are saying, your opinion is welcome but only if it is a positive one.

    I wasn't actually talking about who wanted to see Captain Marvel. I was responding to a previous comment about scores and ratings.

    Only because it was already on Netflix and pretty well cost me nothing to see it.

    The film didn't interest me enough to pay to see it in a theatre, even though it was getting rave reviews by almost everyone.

    The blatherings about its social importance and speaking to the Black experience made me roll my eyes after I had seen it.

    If you have never seen Black Panther on a 3D IMAX screen, you have only seen 1/2 of the movie.

    Unfortunately, I am nowhere near an IMAX screen. I would have been immensely disappointed in taking a trip to see "Black Panther" as seeing it in 3D would not have made me think it was a better film.

    Edit: Now "Dunkirk" was a different story. It was worth taking the trip to see it in its native IMAX and 65mm format. It was a much better experience than watching the standard 2.35:1 version.

    OK, well I didn't see it for either of those reasons. I saw it because it looked like a great comic book movie and it was.

    I think you've totally misrepresented what's been said about the film's importance to people of color. It's about representation rather than history or experience.

    Maybe it didn't have that impact for you, but for many many people it was a cultural milestone. Again, I am not in this market segment, but I can recognize what it means for people who are, and it makes me very sad when others willfully misrepresent this achievement.

    Returning to the main subject, I'm locked in for first IMAX show at 7 on Thursday. Dolby was already sold out. I may get bumped if my Charterstone game gets put in that timeslot, otherwise I won't see it until Sunday night due to other priorities.

    We will be seeing it in the mostly imaginary 3D that is called “Real3D”. Our IMAX showings will all be flat.

    How is IMAX 3D any less imaginary than RealD? They both rely on fooling the brain into thinking there is depth. They both rely on passive glasses and they both use stereoscopically processed prints that for Hollywood productions are mostly done in post production. The only "true" 3D IMAX films are those specifically shot with IMAX cameras.

    I call it imaginary because the 3D is so poor, that you have to use your imagination to pretend there is any depth most of the time. I buy the disc for almost every live action 3D. At home, it is much better than real3D. Most of the time I wonder why I bother with it in the theatre.
