Awesome! But DC still needs to release two more Certified Fresh movies consecutively before I give them another chance.

Rotten Tomatoes seems to be flying pretty fast and loose with the term "certified". To me, especially lately, they seem like a dog that I wouldn't trust to lick it's own asshole.

I had no idea.  Then it's settled: DC owes me three consecutive movies that are Certified Fresh and rated 80% or higher on the tomatometer.  

Birds of Prey is on the razor's edge; I'll have to make sure it hasn't fallen below that threshold when Wonder Woman is released.

Screw reviewers judge movies by asking people who have similar tastes as you.

It will be interesting to see if it can at least break even. It most likely needs ~$240M-$250M to do so. So far, it's not off to a very good start.

DC lost that privilege with Phase 1 of the Snyderverse.  Until they redeem themselves with consistent critical acclaim, I have no time for them.

That's a really strange metric mate. I mean wonder woman, aquaman, Shazam, joker and now Birds of prey have all been any where from decent to classic. None have been bad. So you didn't watch joker because of this metric as well?

My coworkers and I are all in the same boat as him. We all skipped joker due to how bad DC films have been in the past. Also, WW and Aquaman are the best DCEU films.... however, they were still boring and dull. Shazam was just bad.

It may seem strange, but it's the metric DC earned.  Had Phase 1 crapped out four unwatchable insults against the artistic medium of cinema, they'd owe me four consecutive critical hits.  And until they redeem themselves, they run the risk of raising my standards if another certifiably Rotten movie is added to their body of work. 

Wonder Woman was indeed a great movie.  I'm glad to have seen it before Justice League convinced me to put DC on probation.  Didn't watch Aquaman.  Didn't watch Shazam.  Didn't watch Joker.  Didn't watch Birds of Prey.  Won't watch Wonder Woman 1984.  Won't watch The Batman. If DC resets the clock (again), I'll keep giving their movies a hard pass.  

Their individual quality, be it real or imagined by yourself, is unimportant.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand it's now down to 79%.  Well, that didn't take long.

You missed out on one of the movies of the year because of this nonsense? Also if you think Shazam is bad and WW and Aquaman are full, them DCEU isn't for you. That's fine it's not for everyone, but it doesn't mean it's objectively bad like suicide squad. Though I would say, as an exception to your weird metric, go watch joker NOW
