What Is This Rotten Tomatometer? 2

Annabelle Lona

When it comes to movies, there is always that rotten Tomatometer percentage on it. Some might be thinking, “What is this rotten Tomatometer?” Well, here’s what this really means.

How about the origin of this meter? Rotten Tomatoes was supposed to launch on August 12th, 1998. However, Rotten Tomatoes officially launched April 1st, 2000, by 3 undergraduate students named Senh Duong, Patrick Y. Lee, and Stephen Wang. Duong’s goal was to “create a site where people can get access to reviews from a variety of critics in the U.S.”

This was originally made to be a spare time project. The meaning of a rotten tomato is to show a review of how much a person likes a certain movie. Rotten Tomatoes has been owned by Flixster since 2010. It was acquired by Warner Bros. in 2011, but in February of 2016, Rotten Tomatoes and its parent site Flixster were purchased by Comcast’s Fandango. Warner Bros. retained a minority stake in the merged entities, including Fandango. More…
