Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

The way it works at Rottentomatoes is as follows

and if the OP had a clue he would realize that Rottentomatoes is an aggregate site collecting reviews across hundreds of movie critics.

A best-of-list at RT as a percentage merely means that most critics liked a movie. This requires the critic to give a thumbs up or 3/5 stars.

It is highly possible that 98% of critics all liked a movie enough to give it a barely above average 3/5 star recommendation. Controversial films where many critics view it as a masterpiece but others are old geezer crybabies who can't hand sex, violence, or understand satire, those films may have 15% of critics give it below 2.5 stars/5

However, it may get 70% of critics who give the film 5/5

The overall RT score for the second film may only be 85%, but it is held up as a masterpiece while the film that got 98% no one considers a masterpiece.

Then some dimwit with a website culls the highest % scores and makes a best films list. Worse is that some snowflake conspiracy-minded dimbulbs do zero research on this and post clickbait nonsense on this forum to create a controversy where none exists.
