94 % - and 94 % (Interesting bec. critics and audience are kind of agreed)
8.7/10 - (Not very high - but let's look at season 2):
Season 2 at IMDB: EVERY episode got over 9. And many over 9.5
I'm so confused by the lack of promotion for the series. I'm starting to feel like Chrisjen uncovering some conspiracy. A few folks have said here that the show is already popular enough and that it's 37x more popular than the average show - sure, but wouldn't they at least want to expand the audience and promote it in such 'advertorials'? It's the best sci-fi show in a damn decade and no one is talking about it :-(
For me it's Sausage Party that is sitting at an unbelievable 82% rating. I don't mind crude raunchy comedies or adult animation but when I first saw Sausage Party, I thought it was going to be a funny satire but turns out it wasn't funny. Take away the painfully hysterical food orgy ending and the hilarious opening song and you've got a film that rarely produces genuine laughs and also coasts along on stoner jokes and endless profanity. It's nearly unheard-of for critics to find a stoner comedy like this funnier than audiences, but unfortunately in this case the acclaim was misplaced.
Here's the list: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/top/bestofrt/
I’m not trying to overreact too much, but it’s a bit silly and mildly frustrating mostly because of seemingly illogical it is. Does anyone have an idea how so many films from 2015 on are rated so goddamn highly? Like, it’s actually baffling how weirdly balanced it is.
I’m making this post purely out of curiosity. I don’t have a ton of emotional stake, I just need to know who are Rotten Tomatoes looks at that list, lights a cigarette and says to themself: “job well done”. Maybe they’re just trying to troll me.
Hey, guys so as I was checking what to watch yesterday and after searching for some time I've found this movie called Run Hide Fight which as I understand was just released. Usually I look what critics think about the movie on rotten tomatoes before watching it, and usually user and critic score is quite the same, but seems like this movie has quite a drastic rating difference between critics and users (The time I'm writing this critics rate it 30% - 10 critic reviews and users 92% - 1858 users rated). I was quite interested in such difference in rating so I've decided to watch the movie, and I though it will be quite terrible as I usually agree with critics, but to my surprise this was a really good movie which I found intense and entertaining. Could someone explain was there some kind of controversy or something similar surrounding the movie which influenced the rating ?
Rotten Tomatoes doesn't provide an objective or accurate take on movie ratings and reviews. It is complete shit.
Can you guess what is technically rated at the NUMBER 1 MOVIE of all time according to their Tomatometer Score? Black Panther. Apparently, the Marvel movie, Black Panther (albeit a good movie) is rated the TOP movie of all time. OF ALL FUCKING TIME.
Another example you ask? MULAN (2020) is certified "fresh". That movie was atrocious. Terrible dialogue, lazy writing, horrible acting. But it received a 74%.
If I were to ask you, what was a better movie Interstellar (2014) or Mulan (2020), what would you pick? Well according to Rotten Tomatoes, Mulan was better. Interstellar only received a 72%.
Lets do another one. Rate these movies from highest rated on RT to lowest rated:
Fight Club (1999), The Babadook (2014), Despicable Me (2010), Love and Monsters (2020), Furious 7 (2015), Girls Trip (2017)
Well here's the answer:
Yes, I understand these movies aren't all from the same genre, but any person that has seen all of these movies, surely wouldn't put Fight Club last (imo it should be first on that list).
Don't use Rotten Tomatoes. Its shit. There are so many better places to get your reviews to decide if you're going to watch a movie or not like Metacritic, IMDb, hell even Google reviews or Yahoo reviews on movies would be more consistent.
Fuck Rotten Tomatoes. I have no idea why its popular.
The title is pretty self explanatory but I find myself pre judging a movie if I see a rating beforehand so try to avoid them. With the new CC it shows the ratings on everything and I can't find a way to turn them off.
Am I missing a setting somewhere?
Let’s see if it stays that way :0
Ok I’m not a total Bollywood beginner, I’ve probably seen a dozen Indian films over the years but i have NO METHOD by which I choose what films I watch. We all know the highest grossing films aren’t necessarily the most critically acclaimed films or best quality. And because the films are so long I want to invest time in watching good cinema not films that I finish and regret spending 3hrs watching. 💀 I have little knowledge of what makes a great Indian film so I defer to recommendations in articles - I wonder if there’s a better way?
How do you quickly find the critically acclaimed films from the past year or beyond? Is there a film blog I should be following? If so, please recommend, or please share how you choose which films you watch...
In Hollywood we have rotten tomatoes to give a quick consensus of how the film critics and the public responded to a film - is there any such equivalent for Indian cinema? I’d love to find which films from 2020 I should be experiencing.
I watched WAR (2019) and Street Dancer 3D (2020) on Amazon, my reaction: 😐 some good moments but I think I can do better: although Hrithik and Tiger have amazing bodies, i was NOT impressed by the films convoluted plot, CGI, or the acting. Would appreciate watching some better quality storytelling even if it’s from lesser known actors. Recommendations welcome! 🙏
