I found it dubious that Get Out got a 100% RT rating. It was not even a good movie. Wonder Woman was trash too. These reviews are being bought, plain and simple.

So much this, it wasn't exceptional either as a race-baiting movie, a horror film, a psychological thriller, or as a social commentary. It was just fairly flat. It wasn't particularly bad, but it wasn't close to approaching a good movie either.

The problem with RT only appears when you are looking at the reviewer scores. The only one worth checking is the audience score. As an example, for Get Out, that was just an 87%, far more believable and in line with other horror movies of the kind.

Now, that one could still be bought / tampered with. But, they don't seem to bother with it most of the time, instead advertising the more malleable reviewer score elsewhere, even going so far as to exclude the ability to sort by the audience score in their own various search pages.

I know from IMDB that they most definitely tamper with audience reviewer scores.

For me, a pretty good indicator that a movie is good or bad is to look at the director, the actors, trailers and look for a pattery among the reviews. If I hear the same thing repeated over and over again, I know there's a problem. If Denis Vileneuve is directing, or Ryan Gosling is in it, it's guaranteed to be utter shite. The director is usually a pretty good indicator of whether you will like a movie or not. Sometimes, bad ones change their way and I give them another shot, but that's rare.

Marvel movies seem to be exempt from this rule, probably because they have their vision for the movies they make and just have the directors execute it.

I agree with one thin from the "get out" movie though.
