http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2017/11/exclusive-data-reveals-the-films-where-critics-and-audiences-disagree-most/ A lot of the time, I'll see some stupid movie on Rotten Tomatoes that is funny if you just use it as a way to chuckle for 90 minutes. For example: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/a_bad_moms_christmas . 27% or so on RT… and yet well worth the $3.99 we paid (matinee) or would have been worth the $6.49 we could have paid. It's funny! No, there's no greater meaning. There's no social commentary or hidden message. It's just fun. Other movies are just fun because shit blows up. Are there any other movies with which your rating wildly disagrees with Rotten Tomatoes Critics' rating? https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/eyes_wide_shut - That movie sucked IMO. I almost walked out of the theater. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_royal_tenenbaums - 80%, and the wife turned it off after 25 minutes.
I play a lot of munis (I feel like I'm posting all over this board now so you guys probably already know that :P) but I had someone say something to me in my group that peaked my interest (this was actually a while ago). He was lying in the fairway in some really bad washed out area with a super tight lie but it wasn't marked (so it's technically not GUR). He said to me "well this sucks, I have to play it here since it's Spring, I would just move it if it were still Winter." I know what this course's conditions are like in the winter (I played a good chunk of the winter on this course). The fairways get in pretty horrible shape. Virtually 80% of the landing areas are crap lies, a lot of wash out, pitiful grass, weeds, etc. I just played them as they lay because that's the rules if it's unmarked (right?). Sucked for scoring though. I do understand that for handicap purposes courses have in-season and out-of-season. Living in NC, we fall under the umbrella where all year is in-season for recording rounds for handicap. It's obvious that the conditions in the winter versus the lush Spring are WAY DIFFERENT. Bottom line (my question), are there ANY considerations to slope/handicap Winter vs Spring if the course is in season all year? What would you do? Would you move your ball to an improved lie? I'm sure the courses are rated during the spring, right? Maybe nicer courses have multiple ratings that can be posted in the clubhouse based on time of year and maintenance condition of the course for that day/week/month?
