When a movie has been shown or is showing there is a "Rotten Tomatoes" heading and then symbols with percentage under it; what do the symbols means?
I think it means the rating it has on the website rottentomatoes.com, which is a website that takes into account critic scores across multiple newspapers and websites. See here for more info.
RT tends to favor movies with a social message, attribute or leaning over artistic accomplishment.
If a movie is 100% Fresh, it should sweep the Oscars...and not just an award for Makeup and Hairstyling.
If kumbaya is your preferences for movies , by all means, use the score...otherwise, ignore.
Someone is NOT a fan of RT huh? Wow. Who still watches the Oscars? It's like a party of rich people all patting themselves on the back. I will take user review over that anyday, and RT shows both. To each their own I guess.
I'm not a fan of any rating system or award show. If a movie looks interesting to me (Dunkirk, Darkest Hour), I'll watch it. I don't need a pretentious critic to decide for me.
You're right! User review weigh heavy with me; however, you can't deny the trend of fake reviews lately. I don't know where the reviews come from or who the reviews come from. I'm kinda good at spotting legit ones but it's a lot of work to evaluate each.

Good point. However, I dislike the "who knows who" back room deals that the Oscars have turned into, even more. Do you know of any GOOD site?
