Default Lousy journalism of the now: People hate the movie “Twilight” worst of all

http://www.ladbible.com/entertainmen...mpression=true

I mean wow, is that story bad. It sources a Ranker poll, but when I checked that poll just now, Gigli was at the top of the list (and both were somehow worse than The Emoji Movie). Also, Twilight wasn’t even the worst one of the series.

So some no-name website posted a clickbait story that failed to be accurate on an easy topic?

Film at Eleven.

That said, I found it thanks to people who know things about said easy topic.

See, this is why I find it hard to believe these click-bait threads are just made on a whim.

I try to not look at them. I saw one about rockers (mostly from my era, that is, dead) and the "facts" they cited were probably close to the first thing anyone could google about them... Are these kinds of items now manufactured abroad by people sitting in rooms in Moldavia?

I think AI could do a better job of putting together informative and accurate articles than most of these clickbait sites.

If you went to the survey cited, you’d find that the latest movie on the top is Batman & Robin. Twilight is now third on the list, which also includes Catwoman, The Room, The Emoji Movie and Breaking Dawn Part 1. Which means that the article is not just crap, it’s outdated crap.

For the record, I don’t even think Twilight was the worst movie in that series. The director was at the time best known for Thirteen, and while she might have been out of her depth if she had gone on to the sequels, she handled the movie rather well.
