Comic Con Panels:
Your Opinion Sucks! – Rotten Tomatoes Critics vs. Fans.
Friday, 7/19/13, 7:45 p.m.
Face off with your favorite Rotten Tomatoes critics like Leonard Maltin (Badass Film Critic and Historian), Ben Lyons (Extra), Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood), Jim Vejvoda (IGN), Jenna Busch (Fanhattan), and Nell Minow when they join Editor-in-Chief Matt Atchity and Senior Editor Grae Drake of Rotten Tomatoes along with their editorial team. As Matt and Grae name popular movies of 2012 and 2013, everyone in the room uses their Personal Tomatometer Paddle to dis/agree with the score — and debate questions like “Do reviews even matter anymore?” Courageous members of the audience who openly debate their opinion with the critics receive super cool prizes! Remember: Fortune favors the bold. The panel will be broadcast on Rotten Tomatoes Radio on SiriusXM.
