Holy internet slagging match!
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.
