Anonymous: How do you feel about TMR's rating on Rotten Tomatoes? It seems like the critics who gave it such a low rating are in the same boat as the people roping the movie into the 'typical YA Novel' category and that really pisses me off. It's not like the Hunger Games or like your 'typical' novel. I hate how people are turning a blind eye to it so idiotically.

Let’s go through the list of some of the negative reviews, shall we? :

"Is the true enemy this all-testosterone Lord of the Flies clan? Nah, faulting your fellow kids is so 1950s. For the millennials, adults gotta be to blame"

This is is literally an old woman getting butt-hurt about kids working together instead of killing each other her opinion is irrelevant bye

"The premise seems both smart and intriguing, but the film directed by Wes Ball bears many of the cruder markings of YA fiction."

It’s smart and intriguing but because it’s got a few similarities to other things that automatically makes it bad? Yeah no shut up

"The increasing sameness of these films (an evil future society, a young hero/heroine who must both confront the authorities and escape from them) is becoming pretty familiar."

Maybe, but so?? What?? How many goddamn romance movies have pretty much the same plot? Or action movies? God forbid a kid tries to survive in ‘an evil future society’, but let’s make 10 more action movies where the main guy shoots a bunch of people he has barely any qualms with and then gets the girl in the end and rate the movie 10 out of 10

"Gets the vision and the grit of the source material but finally feels more like a long trailer than an involving movie."

Trailers are literally made up of all the best and most exciting parts of the movie so shh

"It never captured my fancy or had much depth."

This review is fine to me to be honest, it didn’t interest him and that’s okay, and I will admit this movie has a lot more action than deep moments because they haven’t worked anything out yet, and that doesn’t really happen until the later books.

The problem with the rating (63%) to me is not the rating itself, but the dumb reasons people have negatively rated it. They’re mostly old people who are not the intended audience so of course they’re not going to be as interested. I personally think it’s really dumb to count reviews from people that are obviously not going to like it, because it’s not a true representation. I don’t like it, but it doesn’t even matter because either way TMR is doing really well so they can leave keep all their bad vibes tbh

I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love - and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.

I look for my friends.
