How Rotten Tomatoes Scores Critic Consensus, Not Film Quality

How much does the platform play a part in Hollywood?

By //Entertainment

The Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer is an important rating system for film fans. A film that’s considered certified fresh practically markets itself because, in the eyes of filmgoers, that badge ensures a quality film. In return, this makes filmmakers acute to how their product fares on the platform.

While many presume the Tomatometer number of a film measures the quality of the film, it in fact measures film critic consensus. The effects are varying, including films like Baywatch, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and The Mummy, who all performed below expectations at the box office, claiming Rotten Tomatoes played a factor in the low attendance.

Delve deeper into how Rotten Tomatoes works by watching the video and reading an in-depth article by Vox. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
