Rotten Tomatoes employs anti-troll countermeasures

Rotten Tomatoes, the film and television review-aggregation website announced new changes. Namely, how users will interact with and let their opinions be heard on the Rotten Tomatoes. They will no longer allow trolls to brigade the website and declare a project is a failure.

Who knew James Gunn used to be a Twitter edgelord?

James Gunn, director of fine movies such as SlitherGuardians of the Galaxy, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 used to be a Twitter edgelord. The problem is when he stopped being a Twitter edgelord and decided to be a respectable movie director, he failed to go on Twitter and delete is edgy tweets.

I don’t understand why Gunn didn’t hire a social media person to manage his online content. He’s now a famous movie director connected to Marvel Studios which is owned by The Walt Disney Company. Why didn’t he have someone scrub this old Twitter stuff a long time ago?

He should have deleted all his old tweets as soon as he signed on to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s what a normal human would have done.

It couldn’t have come at a worse time for James Gunn. The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is taking place and he was scheduled to appear. I’m sure that’s not going to happen now. The SDCC is like the Daytona 500 for nerds. The Daytona 500 is NASCAR’s Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the NFL’s FIFA World Cup. So obviously, right now is a terrible time for something like this to emerge.

It will be interesting to see if Marvel Studios fires him from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. As terrible and unoriginal as his edgelord tweets were, his movies are very good.

Update

Marvel Studios has fired James Gunn.

I wish Donald Trump played more golf

Chris Evans, the actor who played caucasian Johnny Storm in the first two Fantastic Four movies and Captain America in all the Marvel Studios movies, seems to have a problem with Donald Trump playing so much golf during his presidency.

From Twitter:


I guess Chris Evans wishes Donald Trump was hard at work in the White House, implementing the ideas that got him elected.

I think Donald Trump is the worst president we’ve ever had. When it comes to golf, I wish he was playing more of it, not less. I wish Donald Trump was playing 36 holes a day, seven days a week, four weeks a month, and 12 months a year. The more time Donald Trump spends playing gold, the less time he’ll have to implement his terrible ideas. If he spent more time whacking golf balls, he’d have less time to call Gold Star widows and making them cry.

The more time Donald Trump plays golf, the better

For the sake of our country, the more time Donald Trump plays golf, the better.

If I had the money, I’d buy gift certificates to various golf courses and send them to Trump. If I had that Captain America money pouring in, I’d do just that. I’d shower Trump with golf course gift certificates and encourage him to go out and enjoy himself.

I hate Donald Trump. The less time he spends in the Oval Office, the better.

Did Captain America take steroids?

The first official trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger has been released and it looks like the movie is going to be a good one. Great even. Then again, a lot of crummy movies have had great looking trailers.

It might be interesting to see how the public reacts to the origin story of Captain America. Army scientists took Steve Rogers, a kid too scrawny to even join the Army during World War Two, injected him with a special super-soldier serum, and turned him into a well-muscled super-human. It’s very similar to what people are accusing Barry Bonds of doing. People hate Barry Bonds and other baseball players from the last decade because they believe they used steroids. Is taking super-soldier serum similar to taking anabolic steroids?

Yeah, sort of.
