The audience RT score proves people were just hating.
Anybody who knows RT knows the audience score pretty much always drops down from opening weekend. Why? Because all the people who really want to see the movie usually go opening weekend, they’re the target audience, they were looking forward to it, and they rate high. As time goes on it usually drops 5-10% and settled at closer to a more accurate representation of the general public. Ghostbusters is the only movie I’ve seen that went up significantly. It was at 46% when I checked opening weekend, it’s at 58% now. That just shows that people were just down voting it out of hate. In fact I think I checked Friday, which would mean that there’s a good chance lots of those people hadn’t even seen it. Again, pure hate. Never in my life have I seen a movie jump up 12 percent in its RT score from first to second weekend. I don’t know if it’s misogyny or holding on to the original or just jumping on the bandwagon, but the unreasonable hate is undeniable, imo.
