Insider has revealed the nine movies that have received a perfect score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes this year so far.
Launched in California in 1988, the site collates reviews from professional critics to calculate a score on the ‘Tomatometer’, while viewers can also leave their ratings, which make up the ‘audience score’.
This year, only nine films scored 100 per cent on the Tomatometer, and they seem to reflect a rather ‘woke’ taste among critics, with a documentary about the first Aids ward and a drama about a Mexican chambermaid dreaming of a better life.
Read on to find out which nine films received a 100 per cent rating, and if any of your favourites feature.
THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD
Raking in over $20,000,000 (£15,523,100) worldwide at box office, They Shall Not Grow Old is an impressive documentary exploring life on the front-life for British troops in the First World War.
The history film showcases unseen footage from The Imperial War Museum and the BBC that has been studied by lip reading experts to bring to life the fear of battling in Belgium.
Impressing 138 critics, They Shall Not Grow Old also has a high score among general audiences. It was nominated for the category of Best Documentary at this year’s BAFTA Awards and a number of other global ceremonies that offer recognition to cinema.
Ben Kenigsberg of The New York Times said: ‘Peter Jackson has taken a mass of World War I archival clips from Britain’s Imperial War Museum and fashioned it into a brisk, absorbing and moving experience.’
Critics’ consensus: ‘An impressive technical achievement with a walloping emotional impact, They Shall Not Grow Old pays brilliant cinematic tribute to the sacrifice of a generation.’
KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE
Among the best movies of the year, Netflix’s Knock Down The House followed four Democrat women running for Congress in the 2018 elections – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paul Jean Swearengin.
Sparking conversations about leadership, the production received a stream of awards including two from the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
Despite audiences rating the film just 17 per cent, it received a perfect score based on the opinion of 87 critics.
Critics’ consensus: ‘A galvanizing glimpse behind the scenes of a pivotal election, Knock Down The House should prove engrossing for viewers of all political persuasions.’
ONE CUT OF THE DEAD (KAMERA O TOMERU NA!)
Despite its low budget and cast of little known stars, the sequel to One Cut Of The Dead has impressed many.
The Japanese film directed by Shin’ichirô Ueda, tells the story of a film crew shooting a zombie movie who are attacked by real unearthly creatures during production.
A short comedy, horror, with a running time of less than two hours – One Cut Of The Dead has received a perfect score based on the opinions of 73 Rotten Tomatoes critics.
Critics’ consensus: ‘Brainy and bloody in equal measure, One Cut of the Dead reanimates the moribund zombie genre with a refreshing blend of formal daring and clever satire.’
