Holy in­ter­net slag­ging match!

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Have you heard enough about The Dark Knight Rises? Well, tough. Else­where in to­day’s Ticket we men­tion the furore at Rot­ten To­ma­toes, the on­line re­view ag­gre­ga­tor, con­cern­ing in­tem­per­ate, of­ten misog­y­nis­tic at­tacks on re­view­ers who dis­liked Christo­pher Nolan’s film, which opens to­day. The site was even­tu­ally forced to sus­pend com­ments from re­views.

In all the hub­bub, an­other story has slipped un­der the radar. Ea­ger to be­rate the on­line mob, on­line critic Eric D Snider posted, de­spite not yet hav­ing seen the film, a re­view kick­ing nine classes of tar out of The Dark Knight Rises. He also man­aged to mis­rep­re­sent Film.com by at­tribut­ing the notice to that or­gan­i­sa­tion.
