In the last year, Rotten Tomatoes has become more popular than it’s ever been before and we have people’s laziness to thank. If audiences want to figure out whether a movie is worth paying for in theatres, why would they read a number of detailed reviews when they can just find the film’s score on Rotten Tomatoes and go from there?
As a shorthand for film criticism, Rotten Tomatoes is an incredibly convenient way of gauging a movie’s general response. The site works by collating reviews from around 100 of the industry’s top critics, designating each movie a percentage score. Films rated 60% or more are deemed fresh, while movies given a lower score are rotten.
