"Rotten Tomatoes" = Rotten Reviews; "The Monument Men"

The website "Rotten Tomatoes" reviews movies.  According to "Rotten Tomatoes," every movie from the first silent film on is an artistic disaster.  There are no good movies, only varying degrees of terrible, awful and vomit-worthy.

So what's going on at that website?  Obviously, it's a testosterone-fueled game:  the worse the review you can write, the bigger your gonads.

Today I went on the site to see what it said about the new movie "The Monument Men," based on a true story about a squad of art curators and experts who were drafted into the army to locate paintings and sculptures stolen by the Nazis, and to return them to their rightful owners.   The reviews were very negative.  One reviewer said the film was a cross between Gomer Pyle and Saving Private Ryan.

I found the film interesting and engaging, and worth the price of admission.  Screw you, Rotten Tomatoes.
