User reviews will also have a verified tag for those who bought tickets for a movie. Similarly, you can choose to see only verified user reviews or choose to view each review. Initially, you can only check purchases via Fandango (who owns Rotten Tomatoes), even though Fandango told Variety the move is not aimed at selling more tickets. Confirmation for sales via AMC Theaters, Regal Cinemas and Cinemark will come later later this year, while RT plans to include other ticket sellers.
The site says it adds verified reviews and reviews to give "fans the most useful tools possible when making their entertainment decisions." The changes need to help with any skepticism you may have about the audience's score and user reviews contain opinions from people who have actually seen a movie. RT also looks at ways to check user reviews and ratings for movies that do not get a theatrical release, as well as streaming titles and TV shows.
It is a positive move to help align the scourge of the so-called notification bombs, orchestrated, evil beliefs designed to lower the audience's score in the hope of deterring the public from seeing a movie for whatever reason. Earlier this year, it removed comments on movies that have not yet been released and nixed the Want to See rating after trolls review bombed Captain Marvel and sent it to a nosedive.
