Summer Movie Scorecard 2016

As August passes, we’ve now completed ranking every major movie (releases that hit 600+ theaters and/or with 80+ critic reviews) by Tomatometer since the start of May, concluding another summer blockbuster season. The “blockbuster” this year, though, carried a more ominous weight, with a drumline of sequels and remakes bombing critically and commercially on a weekly basis. Only two movies in the scorecard’s top 10 this year dominated global attention spans (Captain America: Civil War, Finding Dory), with the rest featuring works from auteurs typically reserved for awards season, like Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship or Shane Black’s The Nice Guys.

    Wait a minute. isn’t Love and Friendship at 99%?

  • Michael Ryan

    Actually, if you discount the wannabees writing while hunched over their Apple Macintosh on the edge of the camp bed in their grannies basement where they live and look at Top Critics, it’s 97%, whereas Love and Friendship rates 96%.. In any event Summer doesn’t start until June 21st so not sure what the headline in RT is referring to.

      That’s the literal calendar summer. The summer movie season starts the first weekend in May and largely ends the second week of August.

    Still says “Summer Movie Scorecard 2015” at the top. You may want to fix that.

    Where’s Sing Street??

  • Jim222001

    Of course critics rated most of the Summer movies low because they think we should go see a costume drama instead ?

  • Jason Bowman

    I thought Warcraft was very entertaining. For a video game to movie it isn’t as bad as they say. It’s strange when ever we get something different it ranks so low. They been making the same five movies since the late 70s/early 80s which are Star Wars, Alien, Terminator, Predator, and Star Trek. I think the realm of science fiction and fantasy is so vast there has to be room for something new.

    • Jshadow

      It has to do with “video game movie” bias and the fact that people have LotR for fantasy standard.

  • Jshadow

    “Movie is bad because majority of critics declared it so”
    Yeah well, look who’s sitting on 82% with audiance approval, deepsihts!

    When it comes to new things critics will always be the 1st to jump on it because it’s not something THEY like, not are they willing to try and understand it.
    Bunch of upstart snobby twerps.

  • Brian Powers

    The critics are horrible. This is why the oscars are so bad.
