New Rotten Tomatoes!

Jan. 16, 2008by: Omar Aviles

I think we can all agree that movie review compilation site (among many other things) is one supafly site. If you're on the fence about a particular film and feel general critics' opinion can help you decide to plop down some money to check it out, there's no better place to go than "Rotten Tomatoes". Which is why we're taking a little time here to let you know that those lovably cuddly bastards over there have re-designed the site and made it all shiny and spiffy. They've undoubtedly improved the functionality as well so go ahead and give it a little persual. Click on the shiny and spiffy still below to check it out.

Rotten Tomatoes

Extra Tidbit: The first movie reviewed on Rotten Tomatoes was YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.

True, Vini...

But it's not what's advertised. For example, the upcoming DVD release of "The King of Kong" boasts a "99% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes" right on its cover, when in actuality its average score was only an 8.1/10. The 99% fresh rating just means that 99% of critics gave it ABOVE a 60. That includes any grade in the 60s (in the D range), 70s (C range), or 80s (in the B range) and above. It's just misleading.

Fuck RT!

I haven't been back to Rotten Tomatoes since I got banned for posting pics of naked celebs.

All I wanted to do was make people happy **sniff** Fuck RT!

Well

RT shows the average of all the scores combined too, right next to the tomatometer thing. Anyway, I like both sites.

Actually...

Metacritic is better. I don't want to know the ratio of scores above 60 to scores below 60 like RT gives, I want to know the average of all of the critics' scores combined, which is what Metacritic gives. That said, RT does collect from a wider selection of sources. So take that as you will.
