Rotten Tomatoes Halts Dark Knight Rises Reviews

Haters be hating. Recently Rotten Tomatoes' Editor-in-Chief Matt Atchity recently issued a statement that reviews about the anticipated end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, will be put on halt until further notice.

The move came from influx of comments against critics who have given the movie bad reviews. The first negative review was from Marshall Fine who have received equally nasty and hateful comments which Rotten Tomatoes were carefully policing. According to Atchity, "referral traffic seems to have crashed his server, we've temporarily removed the review link at Fine's request, so his site can go back up. But the score will not be affected. His Rotten review still applies to the score, even if the link isn't active at the moment".

Trollers and misrepresentation of the site also have contributed to this server crash as well thus deciding to place this thread on hold. Guys at Rotten Tomatoes also have looked into moving the review to Facebook to continue on with the debate.

Atchity pleads, "But if I could ask everyone for one thing, it's this: don't be a dick. Even if you think someone else is being a dick. Just take a deep breath, step away from the computer, and maybe go for a walk. Have a smoke if you need one. There are plenty of other things to get angry about, like war, famine, poverty and crime. But not movie reviews."
Rotten Tomatoes is a well-known site wherein people can get access to reviews from a variety of critics in the US.
