2015: The Year in Certified Fresh Movies

by | December 28, 2015 | Comments

Though we predict with bottled anticipation that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip‘s next two-hundred reviews will be positives, for now there exists 144 Certified Fresh movies from this year (compared to 133 in 2014, and 114 in 2013). How many have you seen?


  • Mister Sushi

    Sponge Out of Water has 79%, not 97% 😉

  • I wonder if movies are getting better or critics are getting more lenient? Still quite interesting!

    • Anthony

      Rotten Tomatoes’s rating system is not a good scale to determine whether or not a movie is good. Take It Follows for example. 96%, yet I and about everyone I know that has seen it would say it was a pretty horrible movie. Unique, but no plot. The user score, which is 65%, is very far from the critic score. Since the scoring system is basically either ‘This was bad’ or ‘It wasn’t bad’, many movies can get scores of over 90% simply because everyone thinks ‘It was okay, but not bad enough to say it was bad’.

      • I’m in the camp that LOVED It Follows. I think the hype around it killed it, which is too bad for people. Anytime a horror movie gets hype people always attack it.

  • Olly Blew

    The Martian was very underwhelming

    • Mister Sushi

      While I don’t think it was underwhelming, I did feel like last year’s Interstellar was much better.

      • mohammad mehdi

        i didn’t understand interstellar AT ALL

        • Mister Sushi

          Yeah, but it’s SO rewarding when you do. 😀

  • Abdullah Omar

    oh it could not have been put more cruelly that my world is gone.i counted very few movies that i had seen and that includes mr,hitchcock who is ageless

  • I saw 32 movies in theaters this year, 29 of which were fresh. Exceptions were Jupiter Ascending, Fantastic Four, & The Last Witch Hunter. But if I’m being honest, I liked The Last Witch Hunter and Jupiter Ascending more than some of the fresh movies I saw.

    • Clark

      Hated Jupiter Ascending, but Last Witch Hunter was definitely one of my guilty pleasures of the year.

  • Looking through the grid, I wondered if there were any rows in which I saw all four movies in theaters. Closest I came was 3/4: Inside Out, Dope, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl.

  • Ernesto López

    Where is Cinderella? 😮

  • ceborle

    A Most Violent Year?

    • Jim222001

      That was from last year. Roeper called it one of the best films of 2014.

  • the educator

    Why didn’t We Are Still Here make the cut? At 95% fresh, I figured that even with the weighting it would have been on the list.

    • the educator

      I may have just answered my own question–is there a certain number of reviews that a film must have to make it to the list? If so, WASH only has 37, which may be why it’s not listed.

  • Jim222001

    Ultron was a disappointment. Not as worthy of watching multiple times as the first one was.

  • Joey Singer

    Avengers: Age of Ultron is a 74% not an 84% as it seems it should’ve gotten (;

  • Lukas C.S.

    Divertida Mente foi o melhor.

  • Brian Berta

    So far, my favorite movie of this year is The Hateful Eight. Some people complained that it was slow, but I was entertained fully from beginning to end.

  • Nicky Bocker

    Still looking for a list of movies all I see is pictures. Not like I have all day to spend here.

  • Joey Singer

    Avengers: Age of Ultron is a 74%, resending the memo

  • David Jacob

    Where’s “Amour Fou”? And, if I’m not mistaken, I think you’re missing others.

  • JusticeB

    They left Mad Max Fury Road off the list and that’s also Certified Fresh.

    • Mister Sushi

      11th row, second pic 😉

  • Treeflower

    So far I saw or Netflix-saved about two dozen of those, but a few of my actual favorites or must-sees apparently didn’t quite make the requisite 75%…Mockingjay: Part 2 was easily #1 to me. It’s a complete mystery how many of these other nice-but-not-THAT-great films (including Star Wars) could’ve possibly scored higher than it.

  • pizzaisdabest

    Where is Kingsman: The Secret Service?

    • David Jacob

      “Kingsman: The Secret Service” was not certified fresh.
