cherry picks

There’s no question that Rotten Tomatoes has become a force to be reckoned with in the movie industry. The review aggregation site has become a powerful influencer on audience opinion — though it’s still up in the air whether it impacts box office at all. But there’s one problem: the top Rotten Tomatoes critics are still mostly men.

Enter Cherry Picks. The review aggregator site aims to be the all-female alternative to Rotten Tomatoes, pulling reviews exclusively written by women.

justice league rotten tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes stirred up some uproar yesterday when the review aggregator website announced that it wouldn’t be releasing the Tomatometer score for Justice League, the highly anticipated and embattled DC Comics superhero movie, until Thursday — until a full day after the review embargo lifted. The score would be revealed in conjunction with the website’s new Facebook show See It/Skip It, and fans would have to be satisfied with combing through reviews without a final score. Of course, a few news outlets even did the legwork themselves and produced an unofficial Justice League score. You know, for science.

But a mistake may have been made and the Rotten Tomatoes score was leaked early. The leaked score is no longer available, but the evidence is strewn all across Twitter. Continue reading if you dare.

martin scorsese rotten tomatoes

The animosity between the film industry and internet “aggregators” has been simmering since the summer, but it’s just kicked up a notch with the introduction of legendary director Martin Scorsese into the fray.

Scorsese penned an excoriating essay against Rotten Tomatoes, Cinemascore, and other digital aggregation sites, calling them “hostile to serious filmmakers,” and a bane on the film criticism community. It’s another entry in the ongoing debate over the influence Rotten Tomatoes has over film studios and the box office.

flatliners trailer

Like any year, 2017 has had some truly excellent films, and then it’s also had some stinkers. As we approach the end of the year and enter awards season, get ready for more excellent films. For now, though, here come the summer runoffs – the films studios had no real faith in and dumped at the dead-end of September. Films like the Flatliners remake, which is now sitting at an uncomfortable 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the folks at MovieFone were kind enough to point out. Read more about the Flatliners negative reviews below.
