They're promoting this movie on sites I frequent.
It's certainly Rated R

Yeah.. How is Rottentomatoes strict at all? Basically if a "critic" scores a movie anywhere from 6-10 out of 10 = Fresh. If it's rated anywhere between 1-5 out of 10 = Rotten. Then they just take the average. If a movie has a total of 10 reviews and all 10 of them gave the movie a 6/10 then rottentomatoes score would be 100% Fresh. Which can be misleading.

Rotten Tomatoes is good.. Just pointing out how they're not "strict" You just gotta know what you're looking at. Look at the average score.

^ Gotcha'. So then they're not that credible then after all? Almost as bad as imdb's system?
metacritic the only good rating system then?
Rotten tomatoes is fine if you read the reviews themselves and also look at the actual movie rating which is below the percentage which gives a more accurate rating of the movies critical reception
RT and Metacritic are just different
RT is just simpler. How many critics thought it wa positive vs negative
Metacritic emphasizes what each critics rating of the movie was and averages it
RT does this as well but in the In smaller print under the percentage.
I personally read the reviews moreso than the scores and the difference between websites there is that RT allows a ton of critics into their score regardless of credentials and just separates them by having a top critics section while Metacritic is basically all top critics only
I use both for movies I'm on the fence about though if put into a corner I'd say Metacritic is better because it also has music, video game, and tv show sections
