Oh and Toy Story 4 now has 4 negative reviews 

None of them from Top Critics (One guy represents a site called "Battleship Pretension" that should tell you everything you need to know)

It's just one filmmaker's opinion, but still interesting.  The highest anyone put it on their RT list was 9th.

I think that was me.  Hopefully it will do well critically and keep me out of last place.

I did not move up, but I did not drop in the standings, either.  I will count that as a win.

I would continue the whole lyrics thing, but I know that would piss Rippa off. I'll just say, I moved up a spot! Or Hailsaban fell, six of one. . . .

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has "dropped" to 92%

That will still be good for second place in this poll (Toy Story 4 is clearly going to be #1)

And it has several weeks before release date

That being said - I will giggle if it somehow ends up lower than John Wick 3 on the RT list

Looking at the reviews...only one really new negative review was added. The previous one before that was a month back. All the top critics so far loved it. I can see it sitting at 92-94 percent even if gets 250 more reviews (The Hateful Eight had a total of 316).

That's.... a little worrisome.  I don't think it will fall off a cliff but if it's 90% now that is mainly from the comic book dudes who generally give positive reviews.  Then the real movie critics start reviewing and it could drop significantly.

It climbed to 91% at 105 reviews so it looks like it will finish in the 92-89 range

Which again will be good for at least Top 5 in this pool and a real shot at Top 3

Spoiler alert: Niners put Child's Play dead last on his RT list, and it turned out to be a decent movie.  So we're going to have someone new in the #1 spot today.

Does anyone not have Toy Story 4 at the top of their RT list (of the people who had it on their list)?

Yes.

No one left it off their RT list.  17 people have it #1, 3 people have it #2, 1 person has it at #3 and 1 person has it at #4.

Of the 5 people who did not put Toy Story 4 at #1 RT, 4 of them put Lion King at #1 and 1 of them put Once Upon A Time In Hollywood at #1.
