A movie lover's friend
I love going to the movie theater - nothing beats a bag of yummy, buttery popcorn, a large diet coke and a great flick. However, these days I am a little more reluctant to go see a movie based on its trailer or what the local newspaper said. There is one source on the internet that I completely trust to give me the real scoop when it comes to motion pictures, Rotten Tomatoes. The site rates each film from 1-100, with a score of 50+ being "fresh" and a score of less than 50 being "rotten." The site compiles reviews from all over the country and averages them into this overall score. I enjoy reading snippets of the reviews and have found that the site is dead on accurate. If a movie I've been wanting to see scores a 34, but I just had to see it anyways - I always regret not listening to the Tomato.
