Why do fans love some Rotten films and hate some Fresh ones? What did critics make of a cult classic before it earned its cult status? How does the afterlife of a movie impact how we view it? In this weekly podcast, hosts Jacqueline Coley and Mark Ellis and guests go deep and settle the score on some of the most beloved – and despised – movies and TV shows ever made, directly taking on the statement we hear from so many fans: “Rotten Tomatoes is wrong.”
New episodes of Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes) will drop every Thursday morning at 6am ET / 3am PT, kicking off with our very first episode focused on the movie that killed the Tobey Maguire Spidey era, Spider-Man 3. From there, we’ll be looking at under-appreciated video game adaption Mortal Kombat, the Certified Fresh – and almost universally reviled – Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, ’90s favorite Sister Act 2, polarizing super-villain flick Venom, and so many more.
