Martin Scorsese slams Rotten Tomatoes

(EW) — Martin Scorsese criticized aggregator websites Rotten Tomatoes and CinemaScore — and railed against “the devaluation of cinema itself” — at the Turner Classic Movies film festival this weekend.

In his acceptance speech for the inaugural Robert Osborne Award at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Thursday evening, Scorsese said that the review aggregators lead films to be “instantly judged and dismissed” before audiences can see them and judge for themselves.

The legendary director was being honored for his film preservation efforts, and frequent Scorsese collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio was on hand to present the award (when Scorsese came out, he pointed out that the last time the two were together at the Chinese was to film the Hell’s Angels premiere scene in The Aviator).
