    Two pages deep and not one mention of Speed Racer?

    Match-Cut, youíve changed.
    I was honestly a little surprised this hadnít been mentioned yet too.

    Off the top of my head:

    The Golden Child-26% RT (my rating is 8/10, one of my favorite movies)
    Godzilla KOTM-41% (9/10 from me)
    Torque-23% (8/10 from me, I've seen it at least 5 times)
    MacGruber-48% RT (9/10, hilarious movie, saw it in theaters)
    The Doom Generation-47% (9.5/10 from me)
    Let's Scare Jessica To Death-25% (9/10)
    Disturbing Behavior-34% (8/10)

    Too many other ones I like are above 50% but still not fresh. Also I noticed that Lost Highway now is fresh at 60%. Hmm. Also Big Jake doesn't even have a Tomatoemeter rating despite being one of John Wayne's most famous westerns.

    Not to mention that the site only indexes reviews in English.
    Are you sure about this? I think they include anyone who sends a review for submission.

    From ones others have mentioned so far, I'd +1 The Mummy Returns, Chronicles of Riddick, The Time Machine, Jurassic Park III (shocked this hasn't gotten mentioned) and The Lone Ranger. I'm quite forgiving on genre stuff.

    The Lone Ranger was quite good - I think the poor reception of that has more to do with Westerns being out of fashion with the blockbuster crowds than with its quality.

    Didn’t quite get panned, but Soderbergh’s Solaris (66%) was universally seen as lukewarm at best, while actually being a masterpiece.

    That would just be silly. Like Speed Racer!

    I can't say for sure but I've never seen any professional reviews on RT in a language other than English.
    Just because...
    Sibyl (Justine Triet, 2019) mild
    Le Daim (Quentin Dupieux, 2019) warm
    Heimat Is a Space in Time (Thomas Heise, 2019) cold

    The last book I read was...
    Sanctuary by William Faulkner

    I find most of Soderbergh lukewarm at best (notable exceptions: sex, lies & videotape, King of the Hill, and Behind the Candelabra, though as good as those films are, I'd be reluctant to call any of them masterpieces), but his Solaris remake strikes me as an atypically cautious film, not only paring away the difficulties posed by Tarkovsky's film but also forgoing the sort of nutty stylistic doodling that makes Soderbergh's hackwork (e.g., Haywire) somewhat livelier than the run of the mill hackwork. It feels more like the Soderbergh who made Erin Brokovich than the Soderbergh who made Bubble.

    Several Spanish-language pubs appear on there but excerpts are written English (with a "full review in Spanish" disclaimer next to the outbound link).

    I don't think it matters much in this context, because your point stands --- the site focuses on a Western / English-speaking world.

    I'd seen those and assumed there were other languages as well.

    Match Cut has placed Speed Racer in the canon of great films. It therefore has no business being in this thread.
