11/2: Some television updates! The following now have a Critics Consensus:
11/9: Before his national renown, Chuck Klosterman introduced his pop culture heart-on-sleeve philosophy and writing at the Akron Beacon Journal in Ohio. We’ve added nearly 50 of his movie reviews, including Fresh remarks on Being John Malkovich, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Gladiator, Fight Club, Detroit Rock City, and Waking Life. Among the Rotten verdicts: American Psycho, Bringing Out the Dead, and Freddy Got Fingered. Read Klosterman’s reviews here.
11/2: In a job we call positively Orwellian, we’ve added every movie review written by novelist George Orwell. After publishing his fourth novel Coming Up for Air in 1939, Orwell spent the early 1940s reviewing books, plays, and movies before publishing Animal Farm in 1945, Nineteen Eighty-Four in 1949, and passing away in 1950. Orwell reviewed film for Time and Tide (a political and art magazine that existed from 1920 to 1986), most significantly The Great Dictator and The Lady Eve. Read Orwell’s reviews here.
Why do Tomatometers change over time? Because critics are always doing what they do best: Watching and reviewing. Plus, our team is always researching and highlighting reviews and essays from throughout movie history, often from overlooked or forgotten sources. The Tomatometer scores then becomes a living, breathing number, documenting thought and expression both then and now.
