Ever disagreed with the Tomatometer – vehemently? Ever thought to yourself: These clueless critics need a piece of my mind!? Well, Rotten Tomatoes is giving you the chance to give them just that, with three special San Diego editions of our debate-tastic live show, Your Opinion Sucks.
What exactly is Your Opinion Sucks? It’s the live show that gives fans the opportunity to sound off at a panel of critics, telling them which movies and TV shows they got completely wrong, and reminding them that, yes, their opinion totally sucks. As well as fiery debates and piping hot takes, you can also expect fun games – study up on your Tomatometer stats, kids – and a special appearance or two. All will occur under the watchful eyes of co-hosts and Comic-Con royalty, Mark Ellis and Grae Drake.
Thursday July 19 at 5pm PST (doors open 4:15pm)
Friday July 20 at 5pm PST (doors open 4:15pm)
Saturday July 21 at 5pm PST (doors open 4:15pm)
Hard Rock Hotel San Diego (Bar 207)
207 5th Avenue
San Diego, CA 92101
Guests are admitted on a first come, first in, basis.
Whether you’re with us live at the Hard Rock or somewhere else during Comic-Con – or heck, you just wanna get the debate started early… like now! – you can join the Your Opinion Sucks conversation by using the hashtag #RTYOS. (That stands for Rotten Tomatoes Your Opinion Sucks, in case you’re wondering). And be sure to be following @RottenTomatoes throughout Comic-Con.
Here’s how to have your say. Pick a topic, movie, or TV show, and then sound off:
“Marvel is marvelously overrated – DC 4 lyfe! #rtyos”
“Why so serious, DC? Maybe lighten up and your Tomatometer will get a tiny bit redder! #rtyos”
“Marvel or DC? Meh. A plague on both their houses. Dark Horse rules. #rtyos”
Not in San Diego? No stress. We’re live-streaming our Saturday edition of Your Opinion Sucks. Head to our Comic-Con hub, the RT Comic-Con Ketchup, at 5pm PST on Saturday July 21 to watch the show live – or set a reminder on YouTube now. You can also watch the full Thursday and Friday shows, recorded, at the RT Comic-Con Ketchup.
