Rotten Tomatoes Makes Big Changes to Critics Criteria

Rotten Tomatoes is revamping its Tomatometer by adding a more diverse set of critics.  Honestly, does anyone listen to critics any more? When a movie gets a 91% on the Tomatometer but is ranked 36% by audiences, you know something is wrong with your system.  Adding more diverse critics is a positive move though.

Tomatometer-approved critics come from all across the U.S., and the world. They publish on a variety of platforms – among them you’ll find podcasters, newspaper and magazine writers, bloggers, and YouTubers. Reviews from Tomatometer-approved critics form the trusted Tomatometer score for movies and TV shows. Their reviews embody several key values – insight and dedication among them – and meet a set of Eligibility Guidelines.
