Popcorn Culture - Supercut: Reviews and Ratings

A few weeks ago, a movie-publicity company called Bunker 15 was outed for paying independent reviewers to give certain movies positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. This reemphasizes a notion that many in the film industry have held for years - that Rotten Tomatoes is flawed, disruptive, and easily hackable. But what does that mean for us, the average moviegoers, and how much do "Tomatometer" scores influence our viewing habits? On this (very meta) Supercut, we're discussing the merits of movie and TV show reviews and how they've changed over time, and whether it's more meaningful to look at the "Audience Scores" instead before buying a ticket.
